Got the phone today from flipkart bangalore. Phone is very easy to handle, nothing fishy, batter..backup is must better than my note3, customisation is awesome, with lots of free themes, and importantly there is an immediate update available which is around 550+mb , that's nice, call quality is excellent, screen quality is superb, there are some chinese languages in the phone which is difficult to understand, feels like using a iPhone, hmm build quality could have been better, very delicate to handle, hope back cases could solve this problem, overall value for money.. Love the phone.. And you cannot use the phone without good back case

I was choosing between this and the Gionee S5.5 and finally went for this to save the money. No regrets atleast in the initial hours :)
I have been travelling to china last 7 years and Xiaomi r the best selling phones there. Its a brand which can easily beat SONY or SAMSUNG but its their rigid approach & chinese thinking which lags them .
XIAOMI r the best phones with features that none can match. Just go for it and u wont repent minus the starter Brand name.

Pepole who are having heating issues please discuss it in details.. i have already ordered and now i am getting confused. i read somewhere may b in the facebook page of MI India that a guy burnt his lap while using this phone..i have used a lenovo tab earlier and that also have some heating issue but not like this.. each and every smartphone heats up while gaming or charging..but this is weird.. please post your experiences .. i have the option to cancel my order.
I didn't face Sim card slot issue. You have to push the pin a little hard than normal phones. I gives nice click sound.
Facing heating issue but I am using the phone continuously using wifi, playing games installing apps etc.
Let me play with the phone for 2 to 3 days. Once i got bored i will write honest review.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2014why u people thinking about such phn? Those specification that cost 35k-40k is in 13k... Why?... moreMy dear friend,its their bussiness module,they sell the phones at the price they make it,and earn with the services afterwards,they are building their brand.Sony,Nokia etc already has their brand value,so they earn profit by selling it at a higher price,Xiaomi is an upcoming brand and they are selling it to their bare minimum manufacturing cost.
