dev, 23 Feb 2016To the ones complaining about price: what does a Samsung or Apple phone offer that makes their... moreBetter exclusive software features, way better design and build quality, better camera, water resistance and memory expansion, optimizations, reliable customer service etc. Xiaomi and their fans are out of their collective minds if they think customers won't gladly spend a few bucks more for an S7 or G5 or even the future iPhone 7 or M10.
anon, 23 Feb 2016It's expensive because no one will respect them unless they market their phones as premium pro... moreHaha that's a new one, in their struggle for "respect" they're alienating a lot of their core users who buy their phones purely for the price and not much else.
samsungsuper567, 24 Feb 2016hahahahahahahaThese Chinese companies have balls thinking people will buy this expensive knockoff instead of a S7, G5 or 6S instead.
Lmao those prices are ridiculous for a Chinese phone, their only advantage was value and now that's gone since a lot of them cost just as much as more reputable brands like Apple or Samsung. And why bother getting the 64GB version of the plain Mi 5 instead of the 5 Plus with its bigger battery?
I don't think that the price stated are true.... I was waiting for this phone since 2 months....but if the said prices are right...then I have to settle with one plus 2 or Asus zenphone 2......
Ishan, 24 Feb 2016Can I please know about this xiaomi mi5 plus, like the release dates and allhave 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, but no plus, all 5.1+ inch
Can I please know about this xiaomi mi5 plus, like the release dates and all
If Mi 5 is selling $599 -
- Most of us will put China made phone at one end and go for Samsung , LG or Sony.
It will takes many more years before China made phone price can be on par with these big names. It is not the matter of how good the specs or how inferior , but the stigma in most of us when "Made In China" is concerned.
Locked bootloader, exclusive editions and higher prices, XiaoMi is falling. As most of comments, I'd rather go for a Samsung for almost the same price. Bad XiaoMi, you disappointed me.
At this price why should we buy apple of china instead of original apple....Don't mind, it's just my point of view....
$599 for 64 GB version !. No way i will go for LG or Samsung insted
Guys seriously wtf, why is the price $100 above the advertised $399.
When LeiJun said his dream was to let XiaoMi be the world's #1 phone maker, I was one of the few who thought that he had a shot, as long as they don't do the same crap as Apple and Samsung where they make a $400 phone and sell for $800.
Don't tell me, XiaoMi, that you've just gone one step closer to that place.
