China's Xiaomi Fans Troll Huawei In Its Own App Store


Xiaomi fans in China boycott Huawei in their own app store by massively downloading Xiaomi's Mi Store app.

In the mobile phone market, there is great competition between different smartphone manufacturers both to keep existing customers and to attract new customers. All major manufacturers have a legion of fans who tend to defend their manufacturer and criticize their most direct competitors.

This time we are attending a dispute between fans of Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi and Huawei, in which Mi Fans, the most loyal followers of said brand, are accessing the Huawei application store to massively download the Xiaomi Mi Store app, the store to buy devices from that manufacturer and leaving funny comments against Huawei in the app reviews.

Xiaomi fans download the Mi Store app in droves from the Huawei App Market giving it very high scores and leaving hilarious comments against Huawei

As they tell us in Gizchina, a report has come to light that states that the Mi Store application (misnamed Xiaomi Mall in this medium due to an error in its translation), has downloaded 48.64 million times in the Huawei app store and also has a Score of 4.8 out of 5 with votes from more than 1,800 users.

In addition to the massive download of this app and the high scores in the Huawei app store, Xiaomi fans are leaving funny comments in the opinions of said application criticizing Huawei.

Huawei's best mid-range plummets, but only for a limited time

Some of the comments that we can read in the opinions of the Xiaomi Mi Store app in the Huawei application store are the following:

  • "Mr. Yu (referring to Yu Chengdong, the CEO of Huawei), forgive me for temporarily taking refuge in Xiaomi. After all ... the Kirin chip is out of print. I'll be back when Kirin returns. "
  • “Don't panic mr. Yu. Huawei's flagship is very good. The mobile phone is still a soft lot after more than two years, but it is really a bit expensive. The wallet cannot afford it. Even if the wallet can afford it, your Mate40 Pro is sold out. I feel like resellers are gross. Come on Huawei, I'll use it later when I have money, I'll temporarily take refuge in Mr. Lei (referring to Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi), Xiaomi is really elegant.
  • “Today I used Douyin and saw the launch of Mi 11, and I wanted to take a look at Mi 11 in the official store, so I tried to open the Huawei application market and looked for it. The result was surprisingly found that Mi Store had been downloaded almost 50 million times… I have to admire that Huawei's metrics are really great. Will users who have downloaded Mi Store in the Huawei App Market like me be included in Huawei's blacklist? "
"I want a Huawei mobile with Google apps": these are your best options in 2021

Obviously Huawei is not going to include any of these users in a "blacklist" but this trolling can be explained thanks to another report that indicates that Huawei is losing many users as we told you before due to the veto of the United States, especially due to the fact of not being able to use certain applications and the vast majority of these users are switching precisely to Xiaomi.
