Surely... moreThere is a reason why almost all manufacturer are making phone of that size, demand. The market clearly shows that majority, probably over 90% prefer phone of that size. Make little sense for manufacturer to make something that probably can't even breakeven the investment, at least not for low end cheap phones. Premium phones are easier to breakeven with higher profit margin.

It's tiring. Surely, people aren't buying phones at the rate OEMs are putting them out. So it's imperative that there's always unsold stock of a phone even when its successor is on sale, which is then sold off at a discount. And where do all these discarded phones end up? If you have to crowd the market with rubbish, surely there has to be room for phones that can be used with one hand and doesn't make your pocket look like you are stealing a living room television.

Qimchi, 09 Oct 2019You'd be suprise at the price differences of the Note 7 and the Redmi 8 in other countriesPrice (now) for Redmi Note 7 (4/64GB) is 150 euros, for Redmi 8 (4/64GB) 110 euros, but, soon, Redmi 8 price will be under 100 euros, and for that price, its good, it have lower price, evn noe, than Redmi 7 in same config.. On the other hand, there is now type c, even bigger battery, differente back camera sensor (363), little smaller phone, have gradient glass-like (it still plastic) look. But processor is clearly downgraded from 632 to 439, 439 is in Redmi 7a, and there ie cost cuting made.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2019Polite way to say only Mate series justify price asked among all chinese phones. Without playstore i doubt, maybe as the camera phone, only, but this Redmi is like 8x cheaper (and have playstore)
