No matter how this phone is getting sold in just a few seconds. The specs tells itself. The only concern is the people are buying these phones, what if they get any problem? Does Xiaomi has its service centers it cities?
According to me user can wait for some time and then can easily avail this phone by view the reviews and comments.
Iam in indonesia, here are many new stock in stores 3500rb-3700rb, but it is very difficult to find single used mi3. If there is low priced around 2000rb I think it is used one but it is super copy (fake).

How reputed news papers like Economic Times are reporting that xiaomi M1 3 sale was over within two seconds. I logged in to website well in advance. it was showing time clock . once it changed to buy now option immediately I clicked but message was out of stock. how? for normal flipkart order you have to pass through minimum four screens and confirm payment method/ ordering address etc. how in 2 seconds all 15000 mobiles got sold with this procedure. only gimmick from Flipkart/ Xiaomi. media.
I feel that the only drawback of this phone is Non-removable Li-Ion 3050 mAh battery. After comletion of battery life, we will not able to replace battery in the home. As this happens in iphone case.

Hi guys! I had bought mi3 in the 1st sale. Believe me when I say that it is an amazing phone. Leave the phone, the MIUI has made the phone extremely user friendly. This cannot be shown in any review video but can only be experienced personally. In the past 10 days, the only fault I found out is that the loud speakers are a bit feeble. They are crisp n clear but a little less loud.Everything else is as shown in most of the reviews...awesome!
Feel free to shoot in your doubts and I will be happy to help!!!!
I think the problems faced in ordering this phone are a joke and its on you . AND I still have not received any info on how to spot a fake one despite asking several times . I think i will wait and see what the prices are like for the Huawei honor6 or honor 3xpro . The latter should compare in price + has SDcard slot . Lets face it the camera on the Mi3 is only comparable to a 8mp , and there are a LOT of people with Mi3 problems in the forums .

I got this phone on 30th July 2014 from Flipkart.
This is an amazing hand set with feature.
battery backup is awesome. I am using 3G continuously and till the end of the day half battery is only exhausted. Games are working without any latency or lag.
Look wise very good, camera quality is also gr8.
Its really worth to have this phone. Its complete value for money. This is my personal opinion as per the usage till date.
Did you perform all the updates related to the phone.?? all what you are saying should be solved through an update
