hir, 02 Jul 2014ya right..y u hating man cuz wer ever u from that can never happen
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2014One plus one is linked to Oppo not Xiaomi. One Plus one is NOT linked to Oppo..ONE PLUS is a SEPERATE company that manufactures ONE PLUS "One" smart phone.
Big deal... a country with 1.500.000.000 people. They sold 10k units in a second. Equivalent to 0,0007% population demand.
I bet selling bubble gum with codfish flavor would have similar demand.
Not only the price is making that sell. It's also MIUI V5 with great functions.
Well, if they could really sell that much smartphones in only one sec, then congratz to XiaoMi. However, I felt that this is probably a gimmick from the company to create big news in the tech world to attract more customer. Even in my country, 40000 Mi3 sold out in just under 2 minutes, which is quite impossible for me to believe, given that s5, htc one or even iphones could not sell that much in under 2 minutes. Mayb some would say "its online you idiot", well if its true then there should be at least 20000 people lining up to buy s5 at the opening date, right??
I'm not bashing XiaoMi, I'm quite amazed that XiaoMi can think of such good marketing strategy that even had me, an iPhone fan, thinking "why is it so popular?? is it good?? i must get my hands on one and try". However, XiaoMi should also consider most of the people who missed out on a chance to buy the products, because sooner or later they will be fed up and buy another smartphone, thus losing some potential buyers.
FreezeGame, 01 Jul 2014With those specs, it was outdated the day it went into production.I paid for my 1st gen Hongmi in Dec and received it in Jan. Now it is Jul, the lifespan of my phone only lasted for 6 months. Even it is $160, it is pushing customers to get a new phone twice a year.
Using the note at the moment...1 word...awesome performing phone at it price...got mine from a local phone shop for an extra 5% more from the original price...but hey, beats waiting for the phone to arrive XD
They have already upset all Chinese who wants to buy one. Check out Taobao today, they are selling it with 25% mark up and you have to wait for 30 days before they ship it out.
It's like oneplus, these phone are like history already, once you can't it on the first day, it becomes outdated.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 20141 sec = 10 000 phone ; so 1 hour = 36 000 000 phones.... Better than Samsung and Apple...actually Xiaomi phone quality is very good. I find it better than Samsung build quality.
Jarret, 01 Jul 2014i don't like China smartphones ever...5 years ago, when Galaxy S1 came out, everyone swear don't buy Korean phones. But now, 99% of android users are buying Korean phones.
So you never know in 5 years' time maybe you will change your mind
Xiao mi, ten times better specs and hardware than apple, but sold at one tenth its price equals winning formula. No wonder, xio-mai sold as street food in Asia is always sold out, because its cheap, but comforting food. In contrast, mcdonalds is always beaten by jolibee in sales because its cheaper and caters to the regions' taste bud. Analogy of xiao-mi and xio-mai (siomai), chinese mass quality at its affordable best. A must Buy Buy Buy.
