VAIKING, 27 Apr 2016Bro, I watched that video. And it brakes like it's nothing. It's a shame. Thanks for posting t... moreWhy on earth would you want to break ur fone, and btw i don't care about the brand, always get a tpu case and a glass screen guard. Imo for ur own interest. Trust me, u won't regret it
PARANDAMAN N, 27 Apr 2016Xiaomi is making world class phones, with unbelievable lowest price. so people were well aware... moreThats all fine. All we are saying is, treat the Indian customer with some respect. Get enough stocks in place and then hold a sale, so that our time is not wasted
Angry Mobile Nerd, 27 Apr 2016Awesome! The price higher than China and still sold out = maximizing revenue.Did you smell import tax and shipping fee ?
Shrihara, 27 Apr 2016They never announce how many units were sold ! We feel they are cheating by creating demand.obviously they are creating hype by cheating.it was the 12th flash sale .when there are so many other phones .the stocks wont go out so soon
I logged with 3 id, when sale start i chhose grey colour option, but its went out off stock, i chose gold option and luckily i got it only with one id, remail two id show out of stock.
I m talking about 32gb version from hyderabad, india
Making us fool....not an open sale...only marketing gimmick...waited long but have decided to go for other model either of lenovo or LeTV or similar one...
VAIKING, 27 Apr 2016Just watch MI5 bend test video shared by GSMArena. And then you won't say anything like that. ... moreFirstly all fones break when pressure is applied, though i agree it's not very durable like nokia or like the s7 but if i may ask, why would you want to bend ur fone for i seriously doubt anyone has broken his mi 5 while sitting down.
Secondly the ifone 6 started it with bendgate does it mean ifone is crap? For if a make a fone and sell for 400$ and it breaks easily then u say its fake, made in China, low quality, bla bla bla, then you make a fone and sell for close to a thousand dollars and it has bendgate, what would u call it? Fake, low quality or a scam?
For me that the mi 5 Broke easily was a design flaw and not for trying to cut corners so also for the ifone 6 , for trying to make it slimmer and lighter cus the same company made the redmi note 3 and believe me it's very durable and it's still cheap infact cheaper than most fones in it's range, spec wise.
Pls pple, xiaomi is only trying to make flagship fones available to all,.. .is that a bad thing, why would some pple want it expensive i still don't know for we all know it costs less than 300 dollars to make a single flagship fone. And i don't care if it's xiaomi, aple or samy, pls bring down ur price
i will recommend to you guys who want to get the mi5 ..please dont!..because its actually not good in quality wise and save your money and wait for the oneplus 3 or zenfone 3
When will the the 64GB variant and other colors (black/gold) be available in India?
What is the problem releasing 64GB & 128GB MI5 models in India?
best to buy xiaomi phones from aliexpress , there are cheap in this website , only issue is the warranty and the shipping time , as it takes 15-25 days to deliver from china/hongkong to india . But its ok , who cares about shipping and warranty, as it will take another 5-6 flash sale to buy a new phone from xiaomi in india , then from china .
VAIKING, 27 Apr 2016Just watch MI5 bend test video shared by GSMArena. And then you won't say anything like that. ... moreAre you seriously going to put that much pressure that it breaks? You buying the phone to use it as is right?
Awesome! The price higher than China and still sold out = maximizing revenue.

Joe, 27 Apr 2016I would have believed this if this open sale is before the MI5 durability test review by gsmar... moreBro, I watched that video. And it brakes like it's nothing. It's a shame. Thanks for posting that comment. You've surely made me save some valuable bucks.
Just waste of time
Mi has to bring more stocks before their sales..
Xiaomi is making world class phones, with unbelievable lowest price. so people were well aware of this. they don't want to miss the chance of holding one. if you go for some other branded mobile of the same spec. the price will be double or triple th times of what xiaomi offer. just think that. moreover is providing world class phones these days.
Just remember Xiaomi is one of the best mobile makers from China. i admire them.
Keep up the good work Xiaomi.
You are the best of the best.
