The headphone jack issue is quite probably not an across the board issue and i definitely cannot live with it. I was just pointing to the lousy quality control that has some lemons rolling out. The accelerometer is still not showing any consistency and works half the time on the first try and half the time doesn't. I am on 3G full time and the battery barely makes it, which now has me thinking is probably why the phone gets burning hot as well. I can't afford to keep turning data on and off though because I need push mail. But you can see why the bad taste,because god knows when I will get a replacement and if that is possible with the limited stocks. I m now left praying some of the issues may get fixed with a software update and probably invest in Bluetooth headphones. I still think people should wait for more reviews to know how many lemons are rolling out and get a better idea of the patheticness of their quality control. Like I said, the lousy feeling is compounded by the absolute lack of issues with the Zenfone, but now that I m stuck with this can only hope something will fix it.
ved, 06 Aug 2014yes I m agree wt u buddy.. since the sale happenned stday, everybody discussing abt sale... Read posts before 5th august u wil get many reviews....indeed thr are lot of discussions..

sree, 06 Aug 2014i agree with you!! it happened same with me and my friends as well! it's a part of promotion ... moreIt is not promotion. Adding to cart the phone is yours. i.e y it s out of stock within seconds. You can checkout later. Except 1st sale on flipkart it took 40 minutes because one has to checkout. Later flipkart changed the system to just adding to cart its yours. Don't spread rumor.
Anyone who is not able to buy this phone on flipkart is a fool i must say biggest fool of this world i must add..
Here what you should do..
Get a smartphone and download flipkart app and click buy now from flipkart app before sale starts...
Good luck and dont be fool...

Accelerometer is also working fine. Changes very quickly even while playing games.
Battery efficiency.. I charge it after 24 hours check the below link for screeshot of battery use
shows it's been 1 day in battery still 9% left out, which includes 2 hours of gaming, voice calls around 2 hours, and wifi on for more than 10 hours + occational 3g usagae (use to switch off, 3g drains more battery), pretty average usage with screen brightness 60%.
Another RAM cry, If it uses more RAM what the fuss!. You don't have to clear it. I didn't clear and still didn't find any lag. The amount of RAM occupied is irrelevant unless you didn't find any lag.
Auto brightness, agree but can live with it, and again haven't found a perfect auto brightness in any smartphone.
Heating up!!?? Really.. Playing Asphalt 8 Airborne for more than two weeks in battery savings mode, phone just warms up, not that anyone cannot handle. Any smarphone warms up playing graphic intensive games.
May be you should go for a replacement if you got thruough flipkart.

Being a MI3 owner , this is not an issue its due to the protective cover/screen guard which is covering proximity sensor of ur mobile, due to unavailability of native screen guard in local market i used other phones SG so i also faced this issue hence i itched out that screen guard part above proximity sensor,issue solved,now its working great..

shiju1234, 05 Aug 2014I strongly recommend u to go back to iphone... Or juz get a 1100 nokia model. Its soooo smooth... moreWhy are you so offended? I have both phones and I think the Xiaomi does not offer the value for money that the Zenfone does. It might feel so on paper, but in reality it doesn't. Yes the Xiaomi price sounds great when you compare it to other flagships, but there are few people who would exploit that processor. If you are a teenager spending your dads money and don't really care for how much bang you get for your buck and all your peers are fanboys like you go ahead and get it, must be worth it for you. But if you are a self respecting adult spending your hard earned money, think twice that's all. I presume most people buying the Xiaomi are value conscious, which is the selling point of the Mi3 at that price and as are most Indians by habit. I could afford a much more expensive phone if I wanted, but the tech cycle is at a point where it doesn't make sense anymore to spend too much. Phones now are akin to buying assembled PCs to branded PCs in the early 2001-02. It's pointless. And as an assembled mash up, the Zenfone 5 offers more value and does everything that the Xiaomi does (except maybe games) for 4000rs less. The stunning thing about the Zenfone 5s processor UI ram combo is evident not only in routine use, but also heavier tasks like time scrolling through full HD video, the speed is just brilliant and faster than most laptops bought a few years ago. Let's face it, the Xiaomi says a different story about you than does an Asus. If this phone had no issues I wouldn't be complaining, I fell for the hype and reviews and bought it dint I? But the Chinese knock off edges are showing through and some things we take for granted don't work, and a hidden cheapness shows through.(--> my earlier post) All I m saying is to wait for more phones to come out and see how the reviews are, because none of the reviews I read before buying this told me about the poor workmanship in some areas and the faulty sensors, there is clearly a lack of genuine reviews in English on this phone. If this phone was as flawless as it is, I feel they would have released a lot of phones in the first trache and let the reviews and user experience do it's own talking and then maybe create an artificial shortage to build hype. But instead they released the specs, dint release enough phones so that the hype could build unaffected by genuine reviews and then once they have sucked everyone in they are leaving people with lemons. Don't expect this phone to be problem free, the Chineseness and the low price does come through. Now it's your money, you will of course do what you think is smartest, so please..go ahead.
i tried three times for Xiaomi but cant able to book.so i am going to buy MOTO G .
SatishRawat, 06 Aug 2014I feel that the only drawback of this phone is Non-removable Li-Ion 3050 mAh battery. After co... moreNon-removable doesn't mean that it's non-replaceable, it's just cannot be removed by users. Replacement can be done at service centers or any phone shops that have the appropriate battery model.
Who tells you iPhone battery can't be replaced must be a dumb.
DCW, 06 Aug 2014 Why do i want to spot a fake one ? Seriously ? They are available in a shop ( have stock @ no... moreGenuine units with ready stock available at shops will always be higher than the XiaoMi online price. It's impossible to buy any XiaoMi phones cheaper than the online price even ap imported set from China. New units that are cheaper than online price will 99% be clone units.
However there's some "smart" sellers too who sell clone units at price higher than online price trying to convince people that it's a genuine one. That's what happens in China.
