The quality of Xiaomi's devices still need a lot of improvement. Take Mi3 as example: the plastic body looks very low quality because of poor finishing. Parting line due to molding can be seen clearly.
They should replace it with metal body made of Aluminum alloy or magnesium or scandium to achieve light weight.
Near Cost, Yes time to give buyers the benefit and they will be rewarded too! But Apple is still the BEST..in making money. Would like to know how much profit they make per unit? Anyone can guess?
One-Four-One, 04 Aug 2014I don't know why but I am feeling kinda happy right now :D So why? Why have you not signed in as snow white?
But yes I agree as companies like Xiaomi keep prices down and make it a global market
There is in fact two stories in this piece as GSMARENA reported a while back that Xiaomi pushed Apple into THIRD place, by becoming 2nd after Samsung
It is clear that Xiaomi took the reins off and do not respond to the command Whoa!
Reigns now on they the leaders
The second story is that Lenovo have pushed Appke into 4th place as there is no mention of them except the Samsung lead over Lenovo
My source is Gsmarena only
It is going to be tough as the Mi 3 is $241 & the Mi 4 are $320 and $400 for the 16Gb and 64Gb respectively prices in China
High specs low price is what we are all chasing and Apple per "official" leak have pre-announced the base prices for the 4.7" and 5.5" as being $850 and $1012. Apple have dropped 2 places and are the most threatened by these phones
Whilst Xiaomi phones have the specs a majority of people would be satisfied with, the phone I like best is the $333 4G LTE Quad Core "Infocus M810" which is similar to the Mi 4
The price differential many you pay more than double to get the Flagship Samsung
So you may be feeling happy, and I like Samsung but I would be DOPEY to buy Samsung or Apple Flagship phone if my $333 phone was available
High Spec High price is oh so 2012!
Xiaomi should expand already to Europe, North America and the Middle East.

Xioami is a superb phone. Latest hardware with better prices than all others. 3 times less than apple obsolete iphone, or samsung. Only bad effect is the MIUI not updated very often the OS, but the hardware is great. I recommend xioami over iphone or samsung.
Omg what the hell.apple and Sammy going to say happy Christmas to bb and Nokia this year.now feel the pain money rippers
