All this BS about being lucky again?
If you can't buy it fast enough, just buy from a re-seller. You'll pay a little extra, but considering the price, its still a bargain. I know, I bought 3 Xiaomi phones myself.
So, you, guys feel no pity for the marketing people, shop assistants and owners, etc. who will lose their jobs as we start snapping phones from Xiaomi that does not use commercial marketing or brick-and-mortar shops? ;-)
vijayshimla, 08 Jul 2014Samsung, LG, Sony, Micromax all u guys out there are tumbled in Indian market. Thanks Xiaomi f... more...as are probably another couple of million people in India - with selling batches of 20 000 phones, you need to be very lucky to get one still this year. :-) Good luck!
Hmmm by adopting penetrating pricing startegy xiaomi playing well to mark its presence in India something which oppo failed in doing it
AnonD-274516, 08 Jul 2014I'm asking you this since you're already using it, can you give an unbiased PRO's and CON's ab... moreI don't own one but have colleagues who own one and have handled theirs. The pro's are it's a fast, capable, cheap device and an extremely good value for the money. Good battery life too, although non-removable. The con's are non expandable memory (so be careful if you buy the 16GB version, I suggest the 64GB) and overall the phone is kind of big and bulky for a 5" screen phone. The design isn't as streamlined as more expensive phones, so you're ultimately buying a $250 phone that looks like a $250 phone but with the performance of a $500+ phone.
I care about aesthetics and design as well as performance and function, so while I like the company, and I like what they're doing, but deep down their phones are kind of fugly/boring so I still stick to the big brand name manufacturers because I also want style. But if you're on a budget, this is definitely the phone to get. Note Hugo arrived at Xiaomi after the Mi3 was launched so it will be interesting if their design style changes and is reflected in the Mi4 now that Hugo is on board.
They do have 64GB but it is currently sold in China. The price difference between 64GB and 16GB version is less than USD 100 (compare to Apple which is charging USD 100 for each incremental storage upgrade!!)

AnonD-274516, 08 Jul 2014I'm asking you this since you're already using it, can you give an unbiased PRO's and CON's ab... moreI have been usin Xiaomi MI3 64gb for past 6 months. I bought Tegra 4 version. It doesnt support 3g all over. My friend bought 16gb from singapore Snapdragon based. His supports 3g. I made a small mistake(3g nt being available) in buying Tegra 4 Version. But I dont repent on it due to huge no. of Pros
1.Call recording available
2.Lots of themes
3.MIUI cloud storage space
4.Took a lot of photos with it and 1080p videos.
5. Able 2 handle almost all games I installed except SX4.
6.Absolute video and audio clarity with and without headphones.
7.Charge goes upto 1 day with my use and when I was bedridden it went to 1.5 days.
8.Nice look and quality build.
9.Dialer has block facility nd msg too.
10.Almost all in build functionalities r cool
11. U can set password for gallery video etc without additional app. They have it.
12. Camera is 2 awesome.
13.They have antivirus on their own nd updates on their own
14. They update frequently their OS
15. They have cache cleaner and various power saver app.
16. Haven't lagged since I bought it.
1.Google now nt wrking. Dont kno Y
And I dont know whether it entitles as CON. For me it is not a con wid all features and backup. They r yet 2 provide 4.4 update. They hav been providing updates frequently for 4.2 version. Ppl who r lookin for 4.4 dont buy and complain v r nt gettin 4.4 update etc.
Samsung, LG, Sony, Micromax all u guys out there are tumbled in Indian market. Thanks Xiaomi for at last bringing sanity of fair pricing to Indian Mobile space this is the best put together phone at the price point anywhere despite the non removable battery or lack of memory expansion. After all there has to be positivity about sale of 10 million Mi3 in one year. I for one am putting in for the first one in India.
No kidding, but I guess Flipkart will sell this for like, 16k-17k....
Wow!! What a phone!! Seriously, I was almost fed up with the mobile industry and every manufacturer launching same shit over and over again but this phone got me. The price is awesome. I can't afford a phone worth more than $300. The specs are amazing for the price tag. I wish Xiaomi opens distribution channels and service centres across India. That might increase the price of their phones by some dollars but it guarantees them the number 1 spot currently held by Samsung in India. Simply awesome phone.
i was thinking for almost 1 month to upgrade my mobile it should have 1080p atleast snapdragon 800 processor adreno 330 gpu 2gb ram i was confused with lot of option but now i am gonna buy this first day price is the deciding factor other mobile which have same specs as mi3 costs almost twice mi3
