Finding a smartphone that looks different or has a truly innovative feature isn’t easy, but Xiaomi has managed it with the beautiful, unique Mi Mix. It’s a truly bezel-less stunner. The 6.4-inch IPS LCD has an unusual 17:9 aspect ratio and covers more than 90 percent of the front panel.
Our Mi Mix came with 6GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor running at 2.35GHz. Xiaomi hasn’t gone mad with the Mi Mix’s camera setup, so you get a 16-megapixel rear camera and a specially produced 5-megapixel selfie cam under the screen.

Moore, Richard. The Bolt Supremacy: Inside Jamaica’s Sprint Factory. London: Yellow Jersey Press, 2015. Print.
Richard Moore’s work The Bolt Supremacy: Inside Jamaica’s Sprint Factory takes a different lane into discussions of speculations surrounding the success of Jamaican track athletes. Moore’s work offers some distinction from the general roar of the crowds skeptical of these success in that it attempts to distinguish “…facts and conjecture, opinion and evidence”. He holds firmly that success in sports can be achieved without performance enhancing drugs.
The Bolt Supremacy is among several other works featuring Jamaican sports available at the National Library of Jamaica. Visit their website www.nlj.gov.jm and peruse their catalogue for other interesting works. Or come down to the NLJ at 12 East Street, Kingston.
