Xiaomi in India is known for is good pricing but definately Xiaomi has missed their opportunity this time by hiking the price 0f mi5 as comapred to its predecesor mi4, which was priced at 14k . The successor,even its base model is priced at 22,999. Most of the rewivers on youtube thinks mi5 in india should be priced at 15,500 and the the pro version must and surely be launced in india by the end of Feburary at the price of 17,500 inr.
Piku, 24 Aug 2016LoL! Don't worry dude Xiaomi will gift you a Mi5 for free. Mi5 still is a flagship device and ... morelol are you kidding ? see the reviews on amazon for both the phones. I personally used both and MI5 is nothing in comparison to OnePlus 3.
mi5 was a flop compared to mi4.
ppl simply paying a few more for the better OP3
AshokRahi, 23 Aug 2016Still too expensive, 17k would think on itLoL! Don't worry dude Xiaomi will gift you a Mi5 for free. Mi5 still is a flagship device and they are asking 22k which is not bad when one plus 3 is 28k and zenfone 3 deluxe is 63k.
Excuse me, price cut? Really? But in Indonesia we have better price than this, even after tax.
The lack of a memory card slot takes away the excitement from this product! Or at least give us the 64GB version in India soon!
AshokRahi, 23 Aug 2016Still too expensive, 17k would think on itName one device which sells at 17,000 ( $ 300 ) with better specs than this one.
The Mi5 was stupid to say the least. Considering the previous Mi4 was available for roughly Rs 14000/-, it was almost a 100% jump. its evident buyers couldn't digest this price hike and Xiaomi couldn't justify it.
I am expecting further price cuts on this model till it reaches something like Rs 18000/-.
Same here 5" is best size, but after long thought process i went with OP3 and no regrets so far. VFM flagship, though longtime handheld usage is still uncomfortable for me but i m okay with it.
