Bhavesh, 30 Jul 2014You only had to reserve the phone by clicking on buy now. So many people must have done that. ... morei clicked "Buy Now" on many product and yet have changed my mind when it came to payment. then clicked another product of same category then them purchased the products. so according to You flipkart sold 2 devices LOL
Bhavesh, 30 Jul 2014You only had to reserve the phone by clicking on buy now. So many people must have done that. ... moreThen they should say fully booked in 5 secs.
Sale have not confirmed yet. User have not given their money.
Anyway, the most awesome sale record SHOULD bring down the server to a crawl. Else it have nothing to be proud about.

So many people must have done that. Payment was not done on spot. Later payment details were shared and you could do the payment. I doubt if you actually had booked a phone. Process of booking was different from what usually is the process on these sites. And yes, Phone was sold out in 5 seconds flat..
This is probably a false report. I was trying to order for about 30s-1 minute and then was able to add phone to cart. Total time taken for ordering was 3 minutes and if completing payment took 2 mins approx., this means they definitely didnt run out of stock in 5 seconds.
I dont know how others faced out of stock problem in just 5 seconds coz I didnt.
this was manipulative hype as they start taking order and incart from 11 a.m. and competed till 8:45 pm. then how can be a 5 second gimmik chinies .
basushaunak, 30 Jul 2014The product went out of stock in 5 Secs or 5 hours, does not matter...
What matter is they go... moreFool me once shame on me
Fool me twice...ain't gonna happen
It is getting everybody's attention when again Xiaomi says hey world the demand for our phone is phenomenal but Xiaomi cannot answer a simple question
So as it appears that the Mi 3 had a run of just 10,000 phones
If we assume that the run for this NEW Mi 4 was also say 10,000 that is 20,000 phones in TWO countries whose population is over a billion
Maths are 2,000,000,000 people and 20,000 handsets.
You WILL get a Mi 4 if you are the only person in a million people who apply, put another
Only If just 22 people in Beijing apply for a Mi4.
Beijings population is 22,000,000
It it more luck then anything else if you do get a phone given the low amount of handsets that are released this way
The product went out of stock in 5 Secs or 5 hours, does not matter...
What matter is they got everybody's attention... Whether 'hate' or 'love'.
Smart move :)
The Red Dragon playing Chinese Checkers. All a big farce. All that they will end up is damaging FLIPKART'S reputation which growing at an amazing pace and will in direct competition withe likes of ALIBABA.COM. Flipkart should have never allowed this. There is still time to pull out of this Chinese puzzle.
this is not a record ,they are considering only the click oh buy now button. and not actual payment succes rate

CHINESE COMPANIES like xiomi and huwei ARE sending ALL USER DATA OF ALL INDIAN xiomi users ...People who want to buy xiomi are fools... and give an opportunity to spy over India....
You get what you paid for. Nothing in this world is free. They will take one thing or another from you. Knowingly or unknowingly.
i don't think so, I'm pretty sure i ordered late only, i ordered like after couple of minutes only, at first it failed to add into cart so had to give refresh. Must be false claim.
JP Kelly, 30 Jul 2014Xiaomi has taking over from Sammy to be no.1 smartphone maker. Now Sammy is in big trouble!Pretty doubtful.... but good imagination!
It was all bullshit. How can a phone run out of stock in 5 seconds? Did they sell, like, 3 devices? I'm not sure how patient can I be. I don't want to wait a week every time to buy a new phone, and even then, I'm not guaranteed a phone.
