So why it has a very low internal memory? A standard smartphone internal memory should be atleast 32 gig of memory cause all android smartphone manufacturers are known to install crappy software. An example of this is the SGS4. It's internal memory is reduced to 9 gig. So a 100,000 xiaomi sold phones is not a big deal.

Xiaomi phone are produce at the same factory as iPhone and pass through same quality control process. They are cheap because Xiaomi takes profit from software services.

Cheap knockoff of Lumia which probably did not undergo quality assurance tests hence its cheap price, of course it will sell like hotcakes but only in China.

This is not a success or something, a phone with quad core is allways charming, stunning...
People don't care what is inside acctually, Quad is quad man...
So what about the rest?
1 gb of low quality high latency ram, 4 gb eMMC storage with funny partition amounts, extremely powerful SGX 544 and the big part!: 8 mp shiny camera...
Don't worry about software support, there will be not.
Building qualty isn't worth to talk about...

Its allways will be allways cheap phones in the market, not only Xiaomi there are tons almost same specs...
But people forgot.
Our world become a huge globe shaped trashcan, very soon will see that everyone.

And not only Xiaomi causes that, even big companies and ofcourse grasping people (we are, all of us, consuments)
We consuming ourselves...
