XIAOMI KNOW How sell smartphone to Indian customer... LG and HTC should learn from Xiaomi.
JacobFrye, 11 Jan 2018Looks like Chinese phones are quite popular in developing countriesYes... Because it's all about value for money... People are not going to pay for brand value... They're getting smarter...

Than you will see..
We are happy with Xiaomi.
Redmi 5A with 2 GB RAM + 16 GB storage is available for 5K whereas with the same config, Nokia 3 costs 10K, exactly double. Even Nokia 2 with just 1 GB RAM + 8 GB storage costs 7K, which is more than Redmi 5A. No wonder people prefers Redmi over Nokia.

'cause we both know we'd rather both be wherever you are (unless it's nor kor or countries in africa, which i doubt). Heck even people here in india are leaving and working / studying / migrating everywhere like singapore, UAE, Australia, Philippines, Canada, USA etc. They mostly breed so that their children will become a citizen in that country albeit them being illegals. Then they can stay. I mean what can that country's government do? Kick fellow indian parents and leave their kid?

Politics get paid 2000-5000 euro while people who make the hard work there minimum pay is 500 euro and most get that minimum. Thanks to these people who are leaders of company or politics that rise there pay 4 or more times a year. I have not get rise of my pay for work over 3 years and we are so called developed country
JacobFrye, 11 Jan 2018Looks like Chinese phones are quite popular in developing countriesOr it's because it's cheap and that's what only the majority of people here can afford. It's what we deserve 'cause Samsung's flagships like the S and Note series and Apple iPhones don't draw much crowd here because of it expensive prices. Not even flagship Xiaomi devices have done well here considering its "cheaper" (still expensive but way cheaper than other brand's flagships). We're developing 'cause all other countries are already developed. That country that was nuked twice? Or most countries in europe? How about those east and southeast asian countries that were invaded by japs? Yeah those countries? Who were in WW2? They are already developed. We're late af.

That's the typical people like you in here that have no proof that new Nokias have better built quality then other brands.
Hope Nokia also release phones like this to cover more users in India. So that these Chinese phone sales will come down and non-chinese sustain in the market.
JacobFrye, 11 Jan 2018Looks like Chinese phones are quite popular in developing countriesThat's because these are cost sensitive markets and people buy what's cheapest rather than thinking about security and service and other aspects of devices.
Last week I couldn't get the Redmi 5A as it went out of stock shortly after it was added to the shopping cart. Today successfully placed an order. I guess I'll be using it as a secondary backup phone.

Not only in India, in Indonesia it's also very popular, it costs just around $73 or so.
ZloiYuri, 11 Jan 2018Literally living shame for chinese hmd global and it's crappy "nokia" 2.No shame here. If you want a great build quality, promised fast update, a Nokia, you can go with the 2. If you want a beefier spec, you can go with 5A. Options are always good right?
