MI A2 mobile is best mobile in this year,good feture on this mobile
Looked good and fair price for 4 gb/32 gb version on eglobal.. (199 Euro). But then I saw no headphone jack.. crap
gaben, 21 Jul 2018You bet. Perhaps some other Chinese brand or a company from India that doesn't even exists yet... moreIndeed. And thus, the world goes round and round. Not gonna lie though, I really wanna make a smartphone company myself. It would be so cool
Walter C. Dornez, 21 Jul 2018History will then repeat itself and another will take its place You bet. Perhaps some other Chinese brand or a company from India that doesn't even exists yet? That is how capitalism work.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2018Nope, they have limited their profit margin to 5% forever https://www.androidauthority.c... moreYeah, a company makes a promise of keeping specific profit margin indefinitely and keeps it. Indefinitely. What are you, like, 5?
[deleted post]I suppose that could be it but if so, then why release android one models? They don't come with mi services, or perhaps it's more of a PR move by xiaomi by saying "look at these. We don't hate stock android/android one".
Either way, it's a win for users. Very good specced phone with stock android and guaranteed updates.
P.S. There are some signs of them not caring enough about android one though, judging by the delayed and pulled updates for mi a1 due to bugs.
Walter C. Dornez, 21 Jul 2018Idk, I think we're going to have cheap Xiaomi devices for awhile. Seeing as how they're fourth... moreYes, it will take them years to get to the place where Samsung is. But once they saturate every major market with their smartphones, they will stop making money at the present rate. At this point the only way to sustain profit growth will be to offer more expensive devices. You can find as many users in your segment of the market before you'll be forced to shift strategy to attract some new ones. And once they establish themselves as a manufacturer of quality products, it'll be okay for them to ask more for their devices. And at some point they will, you'll see. EVERY major company from Asia has come the same way. Oh boy, I still remember how laughable cheap Samsung's feature phones were during pre-Iphone era.
Most of the AliExpress stores already have it ready.

Seeing as how they're fourth in smartphone manufacturing and with Huawei and Samsung starting to take things seriously, it's going to be a long and arduous battle for Xiaomi. It's bang for buck is what made it so popular in the first place

Once they gain global recognition and true worldwide presence, brand will become more expensive. It's unavoidable.
eGlobal Centreal is NOT a UK site, despite looking like one, but rather a Hong Kong company.

Worst possible build quality
No marketing costs
No offline selling costs.
No, the first listing is 4/32 GB not 64 but still, $230 is extremely good value for a phone with an SD 660 AND android one; even at $270 it beats almost all rival phones in price/specs.
I still have no idea how xiaomi manages to sell phones for such low prices, unless it's a deliberate tactic to gain market share as fast as possible. I can't think of anything else.
