    Xiaomi's analytics app uses an unencrypted delivery system to install APKs/updates
    It turns out, an analytics app on Xiaomi's phones checks their servers once every 24 hours for an update.

    Not only does this app send your IMEI, MAC address, Model, Nonce, Package name and signature through an unencrypted channel, but it also doesn't verify what APK is being installed through the app.

    And they're sending it all to servers in China of course

    FWIW I've never actually wanted a Xiaomi(Little rice) phone. Never impressed me much. Very happy with new Samsung Note 7 though. :)
