Hardware is just skeleton of mobile.
Hardware provides support to software.
If u know about IT industry, people pay for software more than hardware.
If you know about IMEI, thiefs can change IMEI of local brand easily(including Samsung and xiaomi) but IMEI of Htc can not be hacked.
We are paying for security not for just making a call and texting.
Like this there are many factors which common man don't know and local brand takes advantage.
And if you want to spend less and if u want less security from mobile then Nokia Asha is better option. You can make a call, texting and that mobile can run whats app too.
Only Xiaomi can conquer the world soon. Morning shows the day and this is showing the way to the world. This company is not in hurry to become reach but making the very good highway for future.
What type of connectivity now known. It must be 3G and latest band of LTE.
2. There must be FM radio connectivity.
mykonios, 22 Jan 2015Card slot No I do not understand ... Why? Not sure if correct answer but my opinion would be to keep the phone as thin as possible
I have no any concerned with the cost which company is going to bear... neither i am concerned with agreements between companies... i am a user of mobile phone but not owning a mobile store.. so it is better to consider that what a user going to loos or gain by choosing different brands.
We have been fool from couple of years but now every thing is clean and clear to the user so why a user should pay extra for nothing.....
what are the policies or agreements, we have no any concerned but what we are paying just sake of brand it is more concerned...
when Android started then everyone passed the comments that symbions will beat this OS but what happened .... world knows..
then we became brand conscious and started buying brand names ... but now please stop this idiot buying anymore.
we all know very well about hardware using in iphone Samsung Sony Htc Xiaomi ect.....
please stop being fool and accept reality ....
Many new countries are waiting for you Xiaomi so start to sell every country as much as possible. Most of people are positive about your work. Thank you.
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2015Bad english, but a very good point.You don't have to point out the bad English part, just say the positive things i'm sure they will feel grateful.
NPJ , 22 Jan 2015Xiomi ur doing a good job by providing cheapest phones with high grade parts,waiting for this... morecould anyone tell me what is the price range of this phone and the date when it will be released?
Xiomi ur doing a good job by providing cheapest phones with high grade parts,waiting for this phone launch soon..... ,now branded phone should shut frm market if xiaomi launch phone in ofline store .
Every phone becomes little bit slower in long time not just android but iphone too. I know iphone well it sometimes lags , freeze screen , sometimes incoming calls can't be responded etc. I don't mean iphone is bad but not so different than android . This is common problems of aged phones and low specs hardware phones. Better hardware is greater power of engine . Iphone is efficient but unreasonable prices making others companies to make better engine in lower prices. If you can buy airbus in same prices who go for twin Otter plane ?
KiNleY, 21 Jan 2015Guys, every brand has pros and cons. If we consider sony, battery life of sony mobile is very... moreYes i totally agree with you.Apprently for android performance its not for a long term it begins to slow down in time and also every now and then crashes so a factory reset is necessary which is a huge inconviniece even with backups and supports.
Guys, every brand has pros and cons.
If we consider sony, battery life of sony mobile is very very ...... good and since ui of sony is not heavy as campare to htc , samsung and other brand so u can load more apps as compare to other phone
If we consider htc, as compare to other branded mobile, network strength is better. So if u can make a call on worse network.
I dont about iphone so no explanation on iphone.
Samsung , xioami, micromax karbon are provide good specs in low price, atleast on paper, but after 6 months or 1 year u will face issues like laginess, switching of sim is not proper, less network strength etc. And this issues are not seen by eyes since we always concentrate on cpu, ram, cam.( if network strength is not good then we always blame network provider)
So xioami micromax karbon cannot beat htc sony in terms of such factors.
-And MANUFACTURING cost is different from software developement cost and marketing.
-And since you brought this up mr bara was offerd shares and a higher paycheck by xiaomi to join the group.Soo in the near future this mid range phones would become highend phones and were well that end up again? over priced gadgets.
Hahaha...all iPhone, Galaxy, Xperia are put to shame by this new beast in town...eagerly waiting...500+ PPI, 4GB ram...and the price.hahaha, what more
Jun Sid, 21 Jan 2015Dear sHmoe
Will you please let me know which rocket science we are getting from Apple Samsu... moreSo what really is your point? higher or lower price to justify the phones and what they are?
-My dear you might be a tech geek but really? the phone runs with an android OS which is the same with the brands mentioned above beside IOS its UI is just close to being a generic android OS its configured to run the same apps but with a lesser form of feneese And also the cost to customise a UI without breaking the aggrement with google for using the OS would cost almost a million.Imagine applying those customizations to almost all the original software set up would cost.
And are you really honest with your statement that this phone is literally better than that of the branded smartphones computing capacity?it might have the same Chipset,the glass panels screen etc but its not fully optimised to use all of those to its potential.
-And also what phone models were you really using from those higher brands what the brick phones? if so you have really used the phones that of the same age as this then you kind sir are a bad at economic decisions.
-It is tru though that they are using there name since they are known and boosting the price.But that is a part of having a business advantage.if you would had a store that is well known wouldnt you take the advantage by rising the prices a bit due to consumer demand?
-Soo try using/applying economics and marketing with your comments.
Yes man apple is just making people fool. It has manufacturing cost just $199 for 5s and $229 for iphone 6. Other money go for to make apple the richest company. Xiaomi has totally different strategy . It sales phones almost manufacturing cost by selling online which saves 20 to 30 % money that goes to retail chain store , low profit margin no advertisement cost , free android software , tough competition with home grown companies etc. So even if xiaomi is cheap it is not made of cheap parts .Look best branded parts are used such as qualcomm snapdragon latest 810 processor with 64 bits , Sony 13 mp camera .........
