Anonymous, 20 Mar 2016Aren't you speaking too early?Possibly, we all know the price on Samsung flagships drop like crazy once they realize it wasn't the smash hit they were expecting it to be.

If your phone ore microwave over was made in the UK it would cost 10 times more and no one would buy it. On the other hand, chinese companies have the bad habit of infringing patents so less cost for R&D besides the cheap labor. That is why their products are cheaper. I will give you an example, swag-way was a chinese copy of the segway that sold for a tenth of the price. The company that made it got sued by segway but they made so much money that they bought segway and the lawsuit was ceased.

Everyone knows the picture is an old derivative word play of youtube.
The funny part is you felt the need to explain what the front half says because you haven't crop it properly but then in the next sentence go on about "perspective"....this logic mirrors how you structure your arguments.

When will it be available in the Philippines and how much would be the price? Please Reply! Thanks :)

Their ecosystem alone isn't developed enough to sustain the margin they are selling at.
What are you on a crusade to slay people that say anything about XiaoMi?
LoL. If your "research" can only turn up that then.......good for you. And bizzare claim that I'm on a "crusade to slay people" about Xiaomi seeing as I've only talked about Xiaomi with you but whatever you need to convince yourself.
Although your avatar pic of "noob" seems quite fitting.
The Chinese companies are heavily subsidised by the Chinese government meaning they can sell at a loss to gain market share. Samsung is playing a losing game they can only differentiate using hardware and the Chinese can put out nice hardware at a lower price while using the same operating system. Apple is in the best position because they don't have to compete on specs and have their own os .

I dont understand why people arguing the price gap between BOM and retail price of a phone.. Have you ever wonder if you order an omelette in a first class french restaurant it can cost more than 10$, but the cost of a couple of eggs only less than a dollar.. That's why we learn economy at school to understand it
