But I am still not convinced that within a fraction of second stock... moreYes it happens and also as previously explained its like a queue system in which it also matters on which number u have registered urself, now there were like 100,000 people who wanted to buy the phone and stock was 15,000 so u can imagine the kinda traffic website was handelling... i took the phone on first flash sale and still had to go through so much pain in order to get it for myself, even i spent twice coz once i made the payment, traffic was so high that payment was processed but not the order, so i paid once again and got it (Yes I got my money back for the failed order)

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2014No problem in using the charger given with the device. Stop spreading rumors.I know there is no problem with the charger came along with the phone, i am suggesting if there is a over heating issue during charging of the phone then use 1000mAh rating charger it will resolve the issue...

But I am still not convinced that within a fraction of second stock is sold out. As this phone is sold purely on flipkart, I was on flipkart's MI store. And the timing, that clock was ticking was that of server's timing. And as soon the option "Buy" flashed on my screen I hit that in no time, and it showed "Out of Stock."

When your website shows 2:00:00, the actual time might be already 2:00:03 or 2:00:05.
Also it's absolutely possible to sold out in just second(s) because Flipkart made it so that the items are considered SOLD once people add it to cart.

It works only whn u r not att the cal and unopened notification is there it just intimate u that something is pending for u without seeing ok .
gbs, 09 Aug 2014does it have video call facility.
r u able to download apps from play store
some people sayi... moreMi3 does not support native cellular 3G video call, but video call cia 3rd party apps do work, e.g. Skype and WeChat.
Yes, international version (WCDMA) has Play Store pre-installed by default. If you decided to flash to developer ROM for weekly update there's no Play Store pre-installed but it can be installed via Mi Market.
"MI 3W" is the official model number for XiaoMi Mi3 WCDMA (which is the only version to be sold internationally outside of China). "W" is to differentiate it from the Mi3 TD version that is sold in China only.
It's Snapdragon 800 MSM8274AB for "MI 3W". Tegra 4 processor is only used on TD version.
Hey guys I was one the few people to get my hands on the Xiaomi Mi3w in the first batch of its sale. I've been using this Phone Since Last 2 weeks and am writing this review about my experience of this phone
The phone looks absolutely stunning for a phone of this price in fact it looks better than most sub 30-35k phones. The build quality of this phone can be compared with a htc one as the phone is manufactured by Foxconn, the same company that manufactures Apple. The two things which i didn't like was the slipperiness which can be due to Magnesium alloy frame and also that the sim card removal tray is quite hard to remove.The phone is a bit longer compared to other 5inchers but thats ok. Xiaomi has also conformed that it has gorilla glass 3 protection
Now when it comes to the performance power this phone is a beast as it has top-end hardware and a perfectly balanced software which makes it handle anything you throw at it, may it be a graphic intensive game or a full hd video. I have doubt whether it has a snapdragon 800 or 801, because in the cpu-z application it shows snapdragon 801,note that it also has 2gb ram.Some of the applications you install might force close at once but if you tell them about it they will solve it.
The Xiaomi Mi3 has a 13mp Sony exmor-rs camera which is far better than the Nexus 5(In Indian brands,Xolo cameras can be compared to this one).The camera has two kinds of ui an easy mode and a professional mode and has all the camera features you would need like panorama, micro shot, night shot, hdr mode and the usual effects etc.For low-light photography it has dual led flash made by philips.Videos can be captured at 1080p res. @30fps.
The phone runs on MIUI V5 on top of 4.4.2(after the first update). This UI is much similar to ios than stock android as it doesen't has an app drawer and also some of the animations are similar to ios but it still has all the google apps and you can install all the apps made for android.The best thing about the U.I is its themes, it has got hundreds of themes which not onlu change the icons and wallpaper but also the look and feel of the dialer, messenger, settings, lockscreen, boot animation etc. I personaly liked the sense5 theme.You can also add widgets to the homescreen which is not possible in the ios and amigo ui.
The phone has a 3050mah non-removable battery which can give you the battery life of about two-three days at normal-high usage. IF u use the phone just for making a few calls,some texting, browsing and also listening to some music it can last you for about a week
Listening to music via headphone is really a pleasure in this device as it was the firstphone to feature sfx surround sound technology. The speaker cannot be compared to htc's boomsound but is better than most of the phones in terms of both clarity and loudness.The inbuilt music player is also pretty cool, it allows you to view lyrics and also change different modes like rock-pop-classical etc.
1. Being a new brand in India it has very less service centers about 35 or so.
2. You need to buy a cover for the phone as it can easily slip from your hand, but they are not currently available
3.Buying one is a big headache.
4.Stock browser is very slow,boring and very big in size(about 60mb). Although youcan uninstall it if you want to.
5.Some people in India are importing the phone from China and are selling it at very high price. The problem in the Chinese varient is that it doesn't has play store or any other google apps(as it is banned in China)and also some of these do not have snapdragon, the run on Nvidia Tegra 4+1 which doesn't work with Indian 3g frequencies
Priced at 13999, this phone has raised the bar of mid-rangers

some people saying its showing mi3w as model.

is it correct.
please help I can't decide to buy or not...
Hi guys, I had decided to go for Xiaomi Mi3 after going through all the reviews on flipkart & GSM Arena and subsequently I registered myself for the 5th Aug sale.
But as soon as the clock ended with 1 sec and the option for buy was visible, within fraction of second I clicked on buy. To my surprise it showed me out of stock.
How can this happen unless its just hyped?
How can a stock be cleared in not even 1 second?
I am still keen on buying on this phone but would want to know the buying experience of others as well. Along with this i would also like to know more about the camera as one of my brother's friend said the camera is not good as he himself is using it.
