Give it a kevlar back cover then it'll be much lighter. I'll buy it again & sell the glass back k20pro normal version.
The phone is pretty, I will give you that. I have a feeling the phone would have better chance selling if it was an Android One phone. The specs of the phone are already great even if its lacking many features.
That said smart people don't waste money like this, the rest would buy an IPhone instead.

Xiaomi can make an XS Max but if they price it at XS Max no one will it over Apple because people trust Apple more than Xiaomi
Apple, Samsung, Huawei, OPPO all increase their prices as they get more and more sells because it shows more people are comfortable with them which increases brand value and goodwill is an asset
I am not saying Apple and others can charge so much for their phones I am just telling you why their prices increase and why Xiaomi will fail if they jump to that level
I wont bet on Xiaomi being the most affordable even after 10 years, people said they same for Oneplus now look at them

And almost any midrange now a days can last you years
Man thats not true.
CPU and GPU are only major factors which makes flagship device not add-os and features.
Samsung galaxy note 10 have tons of features but on a benchmark test is equal in speeds with redmi K20 pro.
As i said before if Xiaomi makes Apple XS max it wwill cost 500 bucks maybe 600 but not more definitely not more and it will be geniuinely same phone apart from logo on back of the phone.
If apple makes redmi K20 pro it will cost 900 or more bucks like Apple XR.
Difference is only the xiaomi dont need to rob its customers where others robs you.
Oneplus or Huawei maybe cost more than before but so Apple.
Iphone 5 was 400 euros brand new. Current Iphones are over 1000.
But xiaomi never sold so high and no matter the time or age even aftzer 10 years they will be most affordable phone brand.

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2019rich people will buy at least caviar phone, not thisCaviar is nothing just an overpriced brand where a titanium case phone cost 6000 bucks
For same money i can have gold plated redmi with diamonds on back.
They really show that Caviar is very expensive and not worth.
Mgkstranger, 17 Jul 2019Are you crazy ? waste money on same phone just for goldI would like to have one just to prove to others this phone will sell.
LG Superfan, 17 Jul 2019First of all Redmi is no premium brand so launching these is a mistake secondly Indian are mor... moreBut redmi is preium brand.
Same device like Redmi K20 made by apple or Samsung will cost 1000 bucks.
Same device like XS Max or S10+ made by redmi will cost not more than 500.
The only major and real difference here is Xiaomi dont rob their customers.
They are happy even with small profit where others have a 300-500% price difference between manufacturing price and final selling price.
Times when company logo was bearing like status symbol are long time gone.
Now these phones are all equal.
The K20 pro can last equaly long as XS Max or S10+ so lets say 5 years without any major problems or flaws.
LG Superfan, 17 Jul 2019Nice way to earn profit? I'll be surprised if they manage to sell oneI would like to buy one if it will be available in Slovakia.
wasox, 17 Jul 2019Ha ha ha ha!! The next ones will be blu, vivo, doogee, realme, meizu tecno or any other crapp... moreMan theses crappy brands are made in china like apple Samsung Sony etc.
So all brands are crappy by your comparison.
Intruder, 17 Jul 2019Exactly. Redmi's target demographic is hardly known for extravagant purchasing. I expect zero ... moreThen your expectations are wrong.
This is best phone of the yerar and it will stay this way.
GAMIRSFM, 17 Jul 2019Looks cool, but i would like it on a more... flagship phone if you know what i mean.Man on a paper its a best flagship of 2018.
The more flagship device have billion useless features such as IIP certification a bit better screen or camera, stereo, wireless charging option and a overpriced logo of a more flagship company.
This redmi is winner.
For the rest and by yor words more premium you can always shop at russian caviar luxury phone shop.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2019still a better buy than an iPhone XSexactly.
Android was always much more user friendly device.
It is never not idiotic to wrap a rapidly obsoleting piece of technology in an excessively expensive shell.
I bet some smart/cheap indians like me are thinking hmm i could do it for lot cheaper, buy 20gms of gold plate(for 60k₹), spend 40k for diamonds buy a k20 pro phone and pay 30k to goldsmith /machinist, and fit gold back plate to the phone for about 150k₹ and save 320k₹. May be not as good looking, but whatever.
Redmi should not do this type of marketing, indians lovw to jate rich people, will hate redmi brand too. But may be they are trying to be Apple which people love to hate.
Hello Life, 17 Jul 2019I am going to get itAre you crazy ? waste money on same phone just for gold
Intruder, 17 Jul 2019Exactly. Redmi's target demographic is hardly known for extravagant purchasing. I expect zero ... moreDoesn't matter. They are just building hype, which is free advertising for their cheaper model.
