ssbatman21, 05 Sep 2016i am not comparing xiaomi to any other brand, am comparing xiaomi to itself.
sourcing raw mat... moreYou are absolutely true about your observations.
Yes good pricing strategy will help them in gaining market share.

Please understand, they source raw materials from others... morei am not comparing xiaomi to any other brand, am comparing xiaomi to itself.
sourcing raw material and everythng was done with the mi3 too.....
and sd800/801 was the most expensive soc at that time.
am saying that now as xiaomi has gathered an extraordinarily large customer base, they hav 'slowly' started to lose their budget oem image.
but just for reference i will now compare how xiaomi is increasing its prices qith refence to other brand's flagships. take samsung.
i remember galaxy s5 was launched at 51k in india when mi4 was for 20k
that is 40% of the.galaxy flagship. sounds great right????
now mi5 was launched with an underpowered processor at 25k when s7 was launched for 48k. thats 52% of the galaxy flagship.
and considering the price of mi note 2 to be 35k(30k china price+taxes), and note 7 is for 60k. that is above 58% of the galaxy flagship
now mi5 is available for 23k and s7 for 38k.thats 60% of the galaxy flagship.
see the price gap narrowing every year.
soon the xiaomi flagship will be for 70-80% price of a galaxy flagship and with all the compromises we make with xiaomi for its price tag, it wont be worth it.
i love xiaomi devices and am a great fan of miui but they should come back to their original pricing strategies and stay economical.
Camera shud b upto mark of galaxy s7/edge.
Also i hope Xiaomi brings a bug free software for dis based On Nougat.
Yup first let dem launch pending devices in India.
Dis wont launch in India dis year atleast.
First let dem launch Mi 5 Pro,mi max 128gb,redmi pro,mi band 2
ssbatman21, 05 Sep 2016will be atleast 5k higher in india.
so 35k INR.
a good price but xiaomi is slowly expanding ... moreLoosing faith just coz of price?/?
Please understand, they source raw materials from others ( probable list as - screen,storage devices , battery, from Samsung,camera lenses from sony,glass from corning,SoC from SD....) and yet are competitive in terms of pricing and performance.Quality is best you can get at price tag.
Samsung though having most of these being done in-house ( screen,storage devices, batteries,camera lenses, SoC...) yet ate nowhere close to Xiaomi in terms of pricing ( even performance some time)
I put Xiaomi as one of most trusted Chinese brands.better than micromax,lava,xolo.
username8, 05 Sep 201630k INR, 450$ is a good price going by the leakwill be atleast 5k higher in india.
so 35k INR.
a good price but xiaomi is slowly expanding its price territory.
mi3 was launched for 15k. mi4 was launched for 20k. mi5 for 25k
now this for 35k and
next year they will launch the flagship for 40k.
all those phones had best specifications of their time so its fairly comparable.
losing faith in xiaomi.
