Even Apple iPhone 5S & 5C was made in China, I didn't have any surprise new China brand Xiomi are doing pretty well there. 2 thumbs for.Xiomi and all other China brand cellphone makers.

While its true that they sell all these mobiles for a few seconds is true, it's really not like the other manufacturers.

Xi makes a very limited batch of these, 200k for example, announces it few months prior release, combine that with the low price tag and the batch gets sold in few seconds.
And it all ends there. The batch is sold, they don't produce that model anyone, hence the huge interest.

Your count is wrong, also you cannot install apps on sd card attached to phone, don't get me wrong i only wish to warn you about, even 8 gb is to little, 16 gb would be ok. I had a 8 gb tablet and i got issue - not enough space left, take care and good luck but all in all that price is good if you need only for phone,and not a tone of apps and save pict on sd card.

Those are indeed very nice numbers, lets see in 3 or 4 weeks if they still in the same numbers, but, if they still, we are talking about millions of phones in 3 months....
