Unnecessary shenanigans by Xiaomi and Flipkart. Their sales process is ridiculously rigged and counter productive in my opinion. I waited an hour for the sale to begin, only to be greeted with an 'out of stock' message after a mere 10 seconds.
Their sales process is a shame because the phone itself looks great value for money in most ways. Would have loved to be able to get my hands on one without having to go through the pain of their flash sale.
I am not going to bother anymore, will go for an alternative.
i will wait for big billion days sale in october or diwali in november..for the pro obviously..till then i'll use my 17 month old 90 percent new redmi note 3 which is going very storng
Me and my 5 friends try to buy but every single transaction fail with in 2 Seconds How this Possible i can't understand?
What do you expect, at this price and specs, even if they ready 1million units will be gone in an instant. It's just unfortunate, they try to cut out the middle man to sell at cost price to you, the resellers will try to get it with botting anyway. They always must get their cut.
Xiomi note 5 pro was bulkshit noone got it
in flipkat it was out of stockin less then 7 sec
and same was in mi site ..........
Xiomi note 5 version that was available for like 5 min on mi.com ....
i wanted pro version so i didn;t buy
so a Hoaxed flash sale ....to promote ...
It lasted less than 5 seconds.. Bots purchased it for resellers.. Poor Indians suffer the most.. Resellers would sell it at a higher price..
--VM--, 22 Feb 2018How you can complete online payment in 10 seconds .. Most of txn are fail .. It is Xiomi... morePhone is added to the shopping card during those 10 seconds. Then u can order it within 15 minutes or your shopping card will get empty. So it's not like everything happens in 10s.
I think they are cheating. When the countdown's over, I clicked the buy now button and its out of stock.
Kyo, 22 Feb 2018The only decent mid-range phone is Moto g.totally not true. There are several amazing mid rangers like the Redmi note series,lenovo K series,etc. Just that moto has vanilla android. The performance-price ratio is always worse than the redmi.....
Again cheap strategy by xiaomi desirely getting out of stock making it a publicity stunt to boost the demand of the product.
Most of the devices are bought by resellers. They buy it faster than us and put it on sale for 2-3k more..without much effort they earn lakhs easily
--VM--, 22 Feb 2018How you can complete online payment in 10 seconds .. Most of txn are fail .. It is Xiomi... moreyou must not know the reseller game. For example in the shoe game (jordans, nike, adidas) Resellers buy the shoes online with bots. Bots are a lot faster in making orders onlin. With that they can get the item desired faster. That is the same case with this right now. Most of the guys that bought the units are most likely resellers that uses bots.
How you can complete online payment in 10 seconds ..
Most of txn are fail ..
It is Xiomi self boasting .
humm, So not a single person got the phone today, at-least from commenters.
We love you.
Selling a mid ranger for a price of entry level phone from so called leaders of the market.
For comparison Samsung J3 2017 selling for a simmilar price and is much worse phone.
Sony L1 sells for even much higher price and is much worse phone.
And we can continue.
This is why xiaomi rocks over other incompetent compettition.
All you pay anywhere else its a sticker on the phone saying its brand name and yillion of useless company expenses mostly advertising in TV on billboards around the globe and so.
Xiaomi doesnt need any advertising and yet it sales like french hot bagguetes.
