This is one of the game changing moment which will hit all the phone makers in India. If after sales service and hardware quality is good then i dont think it would be hard to penetrate the Indian market specially at this time when all the other manufacturer has a costlier price for old technology.
All the best Xiaomi ...
Not really a Moto G competitor because Xiaomi's MIUI is a quite weighty OEM even on 1 GB RAM. Try to use with all your social networking and calling apps and you'll see the difference in RAM usage as well as performance...
Moto Series, Asus zenfone series and now Xiaomi. Indians are getting quality products in Cheap rates. This is definitely a revolution. Beware flagships.
Antukin, 15 Jul 2014I hope it will be available also here in the Philippines..they have stock at lazada mi3 is available on their site
what about the warranty if something is wrong with the unit? where should we go?
Now what will happen all indian manufacturer black days start., Samsung need to rethink its strategy (uncountable galaxy with poor specifications n same design ), moto g now compete with redmi 1s and other two launchs put every device in its category out of. competition .
xiaomi is rising with sun shine other brands are closing like sunset i think its time to down fall for samsung they are enjoyed there success for couple of years now time is changing very quickly yesterday Nokia, today samsung are going to sleep bcoz they are through out customers gained more money by there brands no time to changing the brands, people not only create a brand to a company they also known how to through them to down so beware of people customer satisfaction is key to success in any organization.
neb, 15 Jul 2014This is a wake up smack for many big brands who still think they can charge old ways for a sma... morei'm mi3 owner from malaysia
i'll tell u bout mi3 quality
the build is solid,no creaking,the button is good(better than moto g power button),not surprising since xiaomi always contract the hardware part to great manufacturer,eg: same factory that make sony product
overall the build is on par with samsung's i owned.
for software part,you be limited to miui,could be bad thing for someone,but can be great as well,my solution is,if you dont like miui,just install nova launcher,it'll look like any android device out there.
for your info,miui already enter android 4.4.2 for mi3,and all xiaomi device are supported as long as miui exist,for that alone,your 230 usd are well spend.
Awesome price of redmi 1S just INR 6999. I was searching for a budget phone and before seeing this I just saw Asus zenfone A450cg and now I m confuse which one to buy
Xiaomi storm arrives in India....Micromax..xolo..karbonn all dies
This is a wake up smack for many big brands who still think they can charge old ways for a smartphone. Game is getting more and more interesting. The only concern I have is overall hardware quality and very important post sale software support. I would compromise phone materials and looks but wouldn't not the software part. Lets say I got Moto E for my mum. For £90 is best you can buy in UK. Build quality acceptable hatdware is fine but what makes this cheap phone even better is optimised and new android iteration. I have tried cheaper Acer phones, huawei ascend y300, samsung, sony but none of this phone cut deal. Hope this announcment will make a dent and shake todays market even more.
No words 2 describe!
It's jst incredible price for wat we get!!!!
People shld really think wen they r giving 40000INR for a flagship device with same specs!
I truly amaze y do they ask such hefty amount of price which can be done by others at mind blowing 14000INR!!!
People shld think.....
Cynic, 15 Jul 2014Done at the end of the product life-cycle to clear the stocks?yes..ofcourse...mi4 is on the corner..
Total KILLER debut! No one expected this kinda carnage! Leave alone so-called SUPER brands, even Micromax is selling it's Octa-Core Phones for INR 20000/-. And Xiaomi has ASSASSINATED every Brand (Super or Poor alike) within 1 stroke.
A Quad-Core/1GB phone for INR 7K!
An Octa-Core/2GB phone for INR 10K!
A Snapdragon 800 phone for INR 14K!
Wait wait, let me see if I got this right:
July 22 the Xiaomi Mi3 goes on sale in India while at the same time (on July 22) Xiaomi will be holding a press event in Beijing to launch the the Mi4?
Bahahahaha! This made my day!
