maybe you know more of those...but where Xiaomi operates, you can see on mi.com.
Xiaomi does have own web shops in some european countries (Italia,France, Poland,Russia)...and it is quite new, from this and year 2017 when the entered Europe biggining with Spain. just google for it, there is a lot to read.
[deleted post]Yes that very much apple's strategy! Selling old devices so after 100 years.. others companies very much like to sells hot products. Don't stuck too much with apple

Its no wonder xuiaomi opens its shops 2 years ago here inSlovakia but i am surprised you dont know because it was 2 years ago.
In present era in almost every bigger country in europe xiaomi have own shops.
And also in some small ones like slovakia which have only 5,5 mil population.
And its like 250km from north to south and about 500km from east to west.

I did find it on eBay, but as I know, you can't buy officially refurbished device in Norway.
Everyone around me is using flagships, mostly they buy it at retailers shops for full price, as I do it too...

Well, how many phones does Xiaomi sell there, exactly!? Iff you know, compare it with numbers of Samsung's devices.
They don't have any marketing in Slovakia, but they are not officially avaible there eather....maybe there is some reseller that import it, but it is not official.
They do have marketing for India and China, where they are selling most of their products.
Not big as Samsung, but where ever you go in China you can see their adds.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2018Zero mid-rangers in top 10 is weird.Mid rangers are not available in the retail stores where most of the people buy or test mobiles. Typically, by the time their flash sales are over, next wave of mid rangers come and take the centre stage. How much can they sell in flash sales?! These guys have no means to distribute their mobiles in all corners of big countries across the globe. Their numbers can't be any better than what it is

Now a days most of the mobiles are almost same. I have OnePlus 6 128 GB which is really great value for money. Samsung and Apple will have tough time beating OnePlus, Xiaomi,Opportunity,Vivo,Honor lines which are very competitive with price and featurewise almost close matching with flagships

more sales figures means not good quality
Xiaomi is affordable that's all- there is no innovation in Xiaomi and redmi series , they just making phones with good hardware and flashing creepy miui in it
MIUI looks terrible

but in midrange Sammy sucKSSS

It's in the budget phone. And even though they pirate apple's design, they're not dumb enough to match apple's ridiculous price. That's where huawei is deluding themselves. Thinking their phones are worth 800 bucks.
Professional, 09 Jun 2018Security patches are more important in Miui than Android versions. With other brands it is a p... morewow, your comment are wrong on so many levels. the security update on miui are bad, they rarely got updated and stuck on old patch. your phone'll easily get infected by malware and adware. even xiaomi didn't care much about your privacy and collect your data all the time without your consent. still, the only thing that considerable are their dedication on integrating features on their old phones.

It's not like almost all the recent Xiaomi phones have the rear camera design of a certain other phone and the Mi 8's notch is totally original, isn't it?
geewaiho, 10 Jun 2018Samsung have reached a point where they are the top Android vendor and are universally known. ... moreMan xiaomi dont need any advertising at all and 5A claimed 6th place.
In my country you wont find any advertising for a xiaomi phones.
But for an S9 and S9+ were sbillboards on every street.
Same for Huawei P20 Pro with a Gal Gadot supermodel presenting their device.
Our talest building in Slovakia which is like 130 meters tall still carry this billboard which covering one whole side of the building.
This was really expensive but advertising in mags newspapers and TV also many other bilborads was expensive as well.
Some companies really cant sell even a nail without advertising.
Aslipundit, 10 Jun 2018Worst post.
Yeah facts are very bad. Look it up. Samsung sales are worse each year. I will supply you the links if you keep doubting.
Easily the worst android comoany right now. Peaked in 2014 (Note 4, probably the best individual phone ever released) and it has been a dumpster fire since , both in sales, internal situation in company and as company of course.
I mean Note 4 had something that no current Samsung has: infinite battery and zero charge time (courtesy of the replacable battery). Oh it also had a QHD amoled .... 4 years ago! Guess what sammy phones still have , that's right QHD+ Amoled. 3Gigs of ram, s9 has 4GB (wow!).
This company stagnated more than my crypto investements. And that says a lot, lol!

To say they woudlnt sell not even one device is reaching. Marketing and advertisement is beneficial for any device launch, name any other device that sells in the volumes that samsung and apple do without advertisement.

S4 80 million sales
S5 60 killion sales
S6 45 million sales
S7 55 milion sales
S8 38 million sales (lol)
S9 Till now less than S8 so mid 30s most probably.
People buy Samsung for brand recognition. Nothing else. Gone are the days that their recognition was meritted (s4 was the fastest, had the best screen, infinite battery, some of the best cameras. Contrast it with s9: Very slow due to low ram/exynos being slow this year, probably the worst battery than all flagships, forgettable camera compared to the likes of pixel and huawei's, same design as last year, excellent screen but competitos are finally catching up, et, etc. Oh it has a top bezel too while competitots have started moving away from it)
