I participated in 2 flash sales 1st and 3rd and got one phone each times so all those people saying they dont have stocks or its hype creating strategy should know this "there is always a quick and the dead" guess who u r.

Using the phone for more than 10 days now and it rocks

those 15000 people in india might be having network tunneling with maybe 1million GBPS internet speed

Still I am not sure if 2 seconds for one purchase on a site is possible...

Maybe they were all with Chuck Norris! :)

My friend tried clicking multiple times on the purchase icon and the page was getting reloaded repeatedly.So finally when I tell her to long press the icon; the order got placed(added to cart). Later , I was told that the payment can be made anytime.
