xiaomi is a liar it doesnt sell any phones and just increases the demand for it
not liar at all..........
I got one at that time for my wife & immediately SOLD OUT in 39 seconds......
Because I opened 3 browsers to start purchase..... 1 browser hit that one for my wife when the other 2 responsed "SOLD OUT"
I don't have a high income and able to spend 200$ but want a phone with flagship performance.. what else could be a better option than this? a perfect phone for middle class performance hungry people!

I would rather get the S4 which is anytime a better phone as the price would have fallen drastically now. Other options would be the Sony Xperia Z1.
mr. moon, 16 Jul 2014Xiaomi will replace Sammy to be top smartphone maker after HTC, Sony & LG in Android OS.having use both Note3 and Mi3, only then I know the difference how Mi3 can priced so low. Yes, xiaomi doesn't make much profit out of Mi3, but when people say xiaomi mi3 is up to Note3 performance or compete directly with note3, sorry, you are pure arrogant and just looking at the paper without using both phone. Yes mi3 is a good phone indeed, for the price, you get Grand2 or Mega which is way below mi3 performance. But when it comes to flagship, its still far behind.

But Xiaomi disappoint me for that I had never receive any update since I bought the phone. It still stuck at Android 4.3JB where China have 4.4KitKat even before they launch mi3 in Malaysia. Don't comment if you dont owned 1...
I can comment on How Xiaomi creates the Hype and seels in Seconds.
e.g. They will
1. Officially Announce the Phone on 01-July
2. Then Officially Launch the Phone on 15-July
3. Then they ask people to Register online on eCommerce portal from 15-July to 21-July
4. They will start selling these phones on 22-July
Now see the HYPE that is created and some loyalists being developed using the above strategy
They are really playing it smart and using the Digital Marketing route!!
cheers, open for further comments
Just wondering... Why xiaomi smartphones are sold out very quickly? Are they offer highend specs with lower price? Or maybe nice quality?
this is actually the second sale, the first sale was actually sold out in 42 seconds. http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-news-xiaomi-singapore-sold-5000-units-redmi-note-42-seconds
One of the strong point of Xiaomi compared to other low cost Chinese phones is the software (UI is beautifully done, and cute, better than Samsung) and its continuous software update support.
What's coming first in people heads with Xiaomi is price/performance. Prestige come in latter.
Different with iCrap/Samdung/Nokipret which already have souls of prestige.
I do like Xiaomi, but she's still there; still no competition in this aspect.
Sounds a bit misleading. The first thing to come to my mind was Samsung. They could have given their phablet a different name.

Anonymous, 15 Jul 2014posturing. Sold out of 5000. Iphone 5s pre orders sold out in an hour but at 5 million units. So they get the honor of being mentioned amongst such a tech giant as Apple. I'd pat myself on the back, too.
