Besides the Scam on the actual sales on Flipkart site, heard the following from some contacts that "somehow" bought it...
* Xiaomi Mi3 Heats up extremely fast. After 5 minutes of call, the front glass heats up so much you cannot put the phone on your ears. There is a risk of Fried error syndrome.
* Solution for above is to use Hands Free. Unfortunately Hands Free is not provided along with the phone. You have to purchase this.
* Also, i am not SAR level for Mi3 is extremely high compared to some of the top brands, not sure where corners are cut on this device
* Most of the accessories for Mi3 are not available - Mi3 official case, Mi3 Screen Guard, Mi3 hands free.. all of them are out of stock on Flipkart. If you are desperate you can buy expensive fakes as stop gap arrangement.
If Mi3 cannot deliver volumes why is this hype being created by this Chinese company? Doesnt it sound fishy?
Saw ur note on Mi3, Gr8 phone really with feature and built in quality..I also got the phone today, but just want to check while charging, is there heating u find with ur phone? especially my phone(front and back) while charging is ON, due to heating issue i guess its quite hot. As I got it today only...so going thru the various features and making conversant with it...pl revert on i3

You can try Google a shop called satu gadgets in Malaysia, you would see is in their website.

Many vendor told me they have difficulty selling mid range Samsung phone, as there is too many choices of better specs China phone in the market, namely Huawei, Lenovo & Xiaomi.
VIZ, 03 Aug 2014Hello Guys........I got my Mi3 on 31st. Did a lot of research and then decided to go for Mi3.... moreYou said you had connectivity issues. And at atlast you mentioned it lacks performance. I played Asphalt 8 airborne, Final commando 2 in "Battery Saving" mode. It played anything I threw at it. I didn't have any connectivity issues. If you dont map your phone number with MI account, themes don't download. I don't know whether you are saying that. Even then connectivity is different from performance. My Antutu benchmarks in High Performance is 34762. I wonder how you say it lacks performance. Sometimes themes doesn't load even wifi is on. Just have to clear the "app data" of Themes app under manage apps. And yes the RAM is always 70 - 80 % occupied that doesn't mean one has to clear it frequently. I tried with out clearing there isn't no lag at all. It may be RAM hungry but it does its job, who cares there is left out RAM.
I think there is a major conspiracy going on regarding not only this phone but also the "one plus One" . Both phones are FAR too difficult to actually purchase , ridiculously so in the case of the one plus one . Think about this . WHAT would happen to the share prices of the major smartphone manufacturers if these new ,seemingly brilliant phones , which are priced at a fraction of the competition ,were to sell WORLD wide the quantities that the customers want ?? We see atm that Samsungs' profits have already dropped 20% . Do not forget , the major phone companies buy almost ALL their parts from China .
