I am writing my concerns about this company I thought would be different than a regular Chinese company, SO call Chinese Apple - Xiaomi. Guess what they can never be even a shadow of Apple the way they are doing business and treating their customers.
I had screen display issue in their "Successful" phone Redmi note. it has yellow dots on screen and you can search and find that there are several comments in Internet of people facing the same problem.
I went to Malad service centre to give this for repair. After wasting an hour they informed me that screen is damaged as there was a slight dent. You can ask 1000 people and no one will say that it was a dent. It is just that a little bit of paint in the corners has worn off due to flip cover that I use which clamps the phone on the corners. They took this excuse and said if I want to fix this I need to pay 4000. The staff was making up these stories, I in fact asked other customer in queue to check and confirm if it is dent or just paint gone off. They agreed that there was no dent. I also compared my phone with two customers who were using flip cover, they had similar markings on corner. I waited and saw that there phone was repaired as their problem was smaller - one had volume key not working and another had charging point issue.
The staff also was not helpful and said that if he accepts this repair 4000 out of his monthly salary of 10000 will be deducted. Out of fustation I said that I should not have bought this phone, he said that to go and buy samsung phone with similar spec spending 20000.
I am never buying Xiaomi or recommending to anyone. I will even put my review in Flipkart website as they partner will such bad companies. someone rightly said that online purchases are not trustworthy and Xiaomi proved it right.
Just to add, I tried taking picture of the phone and no matter which camera I use the worn off paint is not even visible. If anyone has any doubt I am happy to submit my phone for inspection.

I bought a Redmi phone model no. HM 2LTE-IN in June last week 2015. I would not recommend you to buy this phone again. Apps which you download goes to internal memory still if you are having SD card you cannot move apps for that you have to break a warranty. So memory gets full in 3-4 apps and you cannot enjoy all other apps because it cannot be moved to SD card still if you are having a 32gb card.
Sometimes your alarm doesn't buzzes if your phone is not silent, though don't know which disease it catches in this phone mostly in the morning. When somebody calls neither it rings or vibrates you have to switch off and on phone.
Disgusting phone waste of money very slow. Fed up.
I bought an MI4 from flipkart in May 2015. The handset was defective and so they replaced it in June. Apparently the cheap phone is without a gorilla glass. The phone fell from a height of approx 2 feet and cracked. Poor thing. I had purchased the phone for 18k. And when I visit the service center, they say it costs 9k to replace a screen for a cheap phone that now costs 15k. Looters are making cheap phone without gorilla glass and are making money off customers by charging such high ridiculous prices for spare parts. And to top that, their service is soo poor that I receive the following message when i try to mail them. "The recipient's mailbox is full and can't accept messages now. Please try resending this message later, or contact the recipient directly."
Now , Is this phone worth your time and money?? Hell noo!!!. It's not even worth reading my review here. Product, distribution, and After sales service in India sucks big timee!!. You might need to visit China to get anything moving.

truth, 20 Sep 2015If you want a gift for your enemy, buy a xiaomi. Its beautifully slow, You can use any apps ca... moreYou probably bought a fake mi3. If it's a real mi3, then you probably bought it from untrusted source and it is full of malware. Get help on right place before hating for free.
If you want a gift for your enemy, buy a xiaomi. Its beautifully slow, You can use any apps cause it'll keep restarting and crashing and crashing. It should be called crashmi. The battery life is a joke. The camera is HORRIFYING. you take a picture, it looks great on the screen. and when you download it and put it in your computer. NOTHING IS CLEAR. I mean nothing. Seriously. its 2015 every damn part of the picture was blur. I dont know how. Xiao mi. Why. Please. Tell me why you exist? This isn't China. You can't just make sub standard piece of worthless crap and deliver it to the world. that's bad business and I hope that NO ONE ELSE went through my pain and all the precious time trying to make this piece of shit work. everyone, please take your business someone else. Its the WORST PIECE OF SHIT IN THE WORLD. If i ran this company, everyone will be fired. How can you make such a bad product! Poor ethics.

I am not happy with the phone i received ( Mi-4i-32 GB grey), the phone is having many issues, i.e, It is heating, and hanging, even the sound of the speaker is very low. i wanted to return, however the return option is not available on the web site.i went to the service center Gurgaon(Mi Exclusive Service Center),yesterday to get this checked,Vide Job ID:JS15091200112 DT.12.09.2015, however the service center had returned the handset telling that all the MI handsets have same issue. When asked for the DOA sheet they had refused to provide the same. request you to return the handset immediately, else i have to file a consumer case.
Even the invoice received from SNAPdeal is not having the IMIE no, hence i am having a doubt whether this handset is a new one?
Dont ever buy this phone
Somehow I am very much confused regarding my battery !
I want some help from you guys, my MI3 battery is giving back battery back up of 1 day I.e with average usage it will leave 20-30% at the end of the day but I feel a battery of 3000mah should behave well around 1.5 days without any hiccups so is anyone there whose battery is utilizing so much juice so fast and the screen on time for a whole charge is around 5 hours .
Guys many of you are saying that mi3 has detained the feature of quick charge in the past year but I will make some modification to that statement, I am using mi3 from a year now approx from last Sept in the mid year I noticed it start taking some more time for charging but then I found out that quick charge comes in play when your battery is critical around 10% and for those whose mi3 isn't charging fast from 10% too try charging in switch off mode it will charge to 60% in half n hour .
Unanimuz, 04 Sep 2015Even iphones are made in china. LOLKeep full information.bro, just dont blabour on knowing incomplete information,
Iphones made in china that only means they are manufactured over there,whereas the R&D is in USA , on the other hand xiaomi is totally a chineese firm, its R&D is in china itself,xiaomi is a typical chineese phones. Other brands just manufacture their products in china bcoz of various factors available there
