-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
AnonD-256958, 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 $229 for iphone 6. Other money go for to make apple the richest company. Xiaomi has totally different strategy . It sales phones almost manufacturing cost by selling online which saves 20 to 30 % money that goes to retail chain store , low profit margin no advertisement cost , free android software , tough competition with home grown companies etc. So even if xiaomi is cheap it is not made of cheap parts .Look best branded parts are used such as qualcomm snapdragon latest 810 processor with 64 bits , Sony 13 mp camera .........
Sony failed because they charge too much that's it guys.
we all know that notepro is somehow expensive, actually we dont need a CAT 9 LTE, maybe if they dont include this, maybe notepro is priced @ 420USD.
joe sHmoe, 20 Jan 2015The parts are promising and all but whats inside it would be really far from what the big guns... moreDear sHmoe
Will you please let me know which rocket science we are getting from Apple Samsung Sony LG which Xiaomi not offering.
Have you ever used Xiaomi phone...????
Dear dont comment if you never experience anything.
I used Samsung (Samshit) LG (Like Garbage) Apple (making fool) Sony (closing mobile stores) ..... all these Brands just charging extra...
Do you know what is the manufacturing cost of iphone 6...??
What is the Manufacturing Cost of Samsung S5 ...????
less than US$ 300 ~ US$ 400 ... but they are charging too much because we are fool and paying for nothing.
Xiaomi software is best and what xiaomi offers no anyone offering .....
Mr. Hugo Barra (One of Google Inc. 's top Android executives) joined Xiaomi ...
Mr. Barra's departure comes a few months after Andy Rubin, who was in charge of the Android operating system, stepped down to work at other projects at Google. The change in guard occurred despite Android's dominance in the smartphone industry.
Means Barra is also fool to Join Xiaomi but bot samsung LG sony...
As far as Apple, I bat that is worst Mobile OS now a days...
you will see when Apple will go down and knee in front of Android very soon....
Calvin, 20 Jan 2015Awesome !!!!!!
Waiting for it to be launched in India and the pricing ! If it were to launc... more25k INR would be less than what the regular non-pro 64gb version sells for in China.
I hope Xiaomi gouges all of you if they launch it there, you deserve it. You guys always have the most unrealistic expectations which is why you're always disappointed.
You want realistic? 33-35k INR. Yeah reality sucks, doesn't it?
And on top of my previos post if every may have noticed the price for the phone is starting to rise its no longer under the category for cheap but in the above mid range price.Its slowly turnign into samsung and as the cycle would go "one day your on top and the next your at the bottom"
The parts are promising and all but whats inside it would be really far from what the big guns apple,samsung,LG and sony would really offer as for software capabilities.Everyones just choosing this phon because its lowcost but if you may have noticed the physical spec are worth nothing if the features in it would be limited or just half of what the brands mentioned above could provide.
veer, 20 Jan 2015samsung s4 better or xiomi note pro what phone is better????Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, of course!
Waiting for it to be launched in India and the pricing ! If it were to launch in the range of 25-30k. It will be a killer.
Specification are quite promising. But stocks were not available in India. In coming days this is really a flagship killer. They had to ensure sufficient stocks to meet the market demand.
Apple fans might have realised the importance of hardware by comparison of iphone 4 and iphone 6 with same software within them. Software can be updated but you can't add better parts in phone. 1440×2560 pixels is far better than 720×1280 pixels in same screen. Apple fans can claim $100 is more than $200 one day because they are crazy so be aware of them.
..but why stole 4mp ultrapixel front-facing camera from HTC? its good but HTC might have a word with you xiaomi!
this phone will not reach EURO and America, it is Apple Stronghold if they ever reach EURO or American Soil prepare for patent war!!! and even India Because Ericsson already STOP and BANNED Xiaomi from reaching India soil, now they are only able to expand to Africa and South America. this phone is a COMPLETE COPYcat of iPhone
