Dont Know what Xiaomi is Planning?????????
I cant wait no more. I have ordered Asus zoom @rs.32k. Asus has been a great quality mobiles brand despite some minor problems in zenfone 2. Also asus is a customer friendly company. It supports even minor problems in one click.
It is estimated that fewer than 4,000 32 GB units have been sold while demand is for 5 to 8 lakh units. By the end of the first month, LeTV Le 1s Â— the RN3Â’s closest competitor Â— had sold 2 lakh units.
Xiaomi is the only phone brand in India that still relies on flash sales. Others like LeEco, Lenovo, Yu and OnePlus conduct open sales or queue-based salesLenovo has had great success with the open sale model for its K5 Plus handset, which sold 45,000 units on day 1 without crashing FlipkartÂ’s servers .
disappointed, not going to buy this phone at this price, instead wait for op3.
at this price who will buy. i think mi ceo needs to think about other strategy other than flash sale
they will not make any stock for the flash sale... just like Redmi note 3
So they can make some cheap hype and show off its demand is very high....
ERWIN ANG, 01 Apr 2016also ... about the color you indian complain about white ugly color and want the black. but ... moreI don't think that anybody would mind if the pro version is white or black though I personally prefer black only but if u price high and don't even give the color choice that's not good nobody is gonna much about colour if the price were under 20k because it can be beareable because u r getting already that much in ur pH, it's not the color it's the price that would b deal breaker here...
ERWIN ANG, 01 Apr 2016i can understand the disapointment from indians for the pricing policy.
but consider this, fr... moreMi4 at launch in India were 19999 and 23999 and in China 1999 and 2399
Mi5 in India 24999 in China I think it's 1799
I think xiaomi has to pay its all product taxes to mi5 model only right???
Also why white only?
I guess it would take around at least 6 months,after the demand of Chinese cunsumer full filled then they bring the upper models by announcing great discount 32gb model then will b only the price will be right untill then the desperate die hard mi fans will buy unsold Chinese flash sales models, because if the other models are too pricey for Indian market they atleast launch other colour varients of this model but gold are black are most fav colors which are easily stocked out in China they can't maake it to India the quantity of 32 GB model will also be gonna less as they are less likabe for any region..
galaxys6owner, 01 Apr 2016Its like half price of other flagships.It does comes with some flaws.But just think about this... moreIf Apple was selling at same price as in us then there would b no mi fans if xiaomi chooses the way of Apple then it will lose its market
tom, 01 Apr 2016mi5 obviously because snapdragon 810 is far lower compared to snapdragon 820considering the 64 gb option. . .well its clock down anyway. . .and OP2 is the best in class when it comes to memory management. . .apart from the synthetic benchamarks, what can adreno 530 do more ??
I am ready yo buy 64GB phone on same pricing because we wont get an resale value after buying MI where in case of Samsung we will get something after couple of year or so wrong decision MI. We Indians are clever then Chinese!!!!
Disappointed with Xiaomi to not bring the pro to India. Plus they have priced it a tad higher by 3k. All the waiting for more than 7 - 8 months has gone down the drain.
Clocked is down from 2.15Ghz to 1.8Ghz and no 64Gb and 128gb variants to India why???
LilMonst, 01 Apr 2016Why these Indian people keep complaining? at least your country get an official phone from xia... moreThat is because just like you guys we too were waiting for the upper version of this phones since months and certainly you too would get equally disappointed if you get the very basic version after so many months of waiting. Our plight is not different than your plight of not getting it at all, getting a basic version is like not getting the phone only.
i m vry disappointed as 64 and 128 gb will nt be availabe in india. 32 is nt good @ 24k.
Xiaomi has lost it this time totally. Having used Mi4 and Mi4i, I am quite impressed with Xiaomi. But who will buy a Xiaomi phone at 25k Indian Rs?? People buy Xiaomi first because of their prices. I can add 5k and I can get Samsung Galaxy S6 which is far far superior phone in all ways (expect not having Snapdragon 820).
And what about Camera this time on Mi5? Only pixel has increased from 13 to 16mp, rest all parameters have been reduced. Be it aperture size, lenses etc etc. So, how it is an improvement even??
Its like half price of other flagships.It does comes with some flaws.But just think about this iPhone se is like 26500rs($399) in US but its 39000rs in India and people are hailing it as the next big thing.Xiaomi are trying to bring their brand value up with their product.Its a viable strategy as There is no competition for them at this price range.All we can do now is wait for competition to arrive in that price range with better specs and the price to go down
