My wife's Redmi 3 is a year old, still the same battery, which btw is almost three times what her Xperia Z (that she used to have) could muster.
Xiaomi phones are easily attainable via resellers in most places of the world.
Xiaomi is the company with the most support in the world. She by far supports her phone more than even apple. My mi2 (bought in 2012!) still get updates. Again you got your facts muddled up, it's Sony that gives up on devices (one of the reasons my wife sold Xperia Z is that it stopped getting updates).
I don't even think that Xiaomi is some kind of pinnacle. Western brands used to be better. But brands like Sony has fallen so far low that it is pretty much a no brainer. Half of the reason that Sony quality is low is because people buy garbage like this one, w 5.5 inch screens and 2600 mah batteries (I mean not even Chinese knock offs are that bad these days)... stop supporting bad products and we may start getting better quality again in the west too.
