Not a very good record for Xiaomi, company that sold 3x more expensive phones in a 2 times bigger batch in just under 48 seconds! Check their history, they typically sell 100k-200k units in under 2 minutes, and those phones cost like $330 or more, not $130.
I expected HongMi to fly at the speed of light at that price with those specs, but it seems even Chinese people are already sick of S.L.O.W. MTK processors.

Wow, 6 digit figures in 120 seconds - Not bad Xiaomi, one of the more promissing Chinese brands out there next to Huawei and Lenovo - ZTE not so much.

Who wouldn't buy this for $131? A quad core, it's amazing.

On the other hand, Apple's 5C is a true disappointment, not because of it's sales figures; but it's price. The sales figures only reinforce this factor.
