Xiaomi have proven that quality products doesn't need to be expensive. Thus, they have been producing high end quality products at affordable prices. One great example is Mi Band 2, the second iteration of the Mi Band product line. It's premium look and feel at 1,300 - 1,500 php price range, roughly $25 will leave you question if its legit.

But yeah it Legit AF

I ordered it via Lazada App on January 10 and received it on January 23. Upon unboxing the Mi Band 2, I thought to myself, this box is so small. What can you fit in it?

Then you fill find out there's plenty more space inside for a tiny compact Mi Band placed in the center. With only a charging cord, manual (which is in Chinese only, WTF? lol) and wrist strap included, that's the whole package.
