Way too much for a mid-range phone locked to a contract. Maybe $149.99, but $200? Outrageous.

The Mi3 is a fantastic spec phone at a cheap/budget price but it's got one big con when you compare it to the likes of HTC/LG/Samsung... it's bulky and boring. Yeah yeah I know you're going to blab about HTC's bezels but I'm talking about design language. The Mi3 is just a slab of metal on the back and slab of glass on the front with very little thought put into its design. No intricate details, or attention to detail for that matter. The HTC on the other hand, may not be as powerful, but it's much nicer on the eyes and in your hands.
No proud of ownership comes with the Mi3; when you show it off to your friends you're not going to talk about how beautiful it looks or how good it feels in your hand, you're only going to be able to say "Snapdragon 800 phone for only 14000 rupees!" because otherwise there's nothing special about it.
I know most of GSMArena's audience is male and spec crazy, but if you asked a female audience I'm sure an overwhelming majority would take a Desire 610 over a Mi3.

And just to clear things up we dont get those chinese phones in north america. So people in here have no choice but to go with these mid-rangers by the big companies. Unless someone wants to get it online from china but that would include the shipping and import charges , which in my opinion is waste of money
