I can comment on How Xiaomi creates the Hype and seels in Seconds.
e.g. They will
1. Officially Announce the Phone on 01-July
2. Then Officially Launch the Phone on 15-July
3. Then they ask people to Register online on eCommerce portal from 15-July to 21-July
4. They will start selling these phones on 22-July
Now see the HYPE that is created and some loyalists being developed using the above strategy
They are really playing it smart and using the Digital Marketing route!!
cheers, open for further comments
Just wanna know, how is the sound quality of this phone, coz it doesn't mentioned much in the spec or feature. thks
AnonD-155263, 16 Jul 2014Just launched in India. Price tag INR 9,999/-. Roughly €110·not yet launched,it will launch soon
AnonD-283813, 15 Jul 2014Definitely not faster than S5 or iPhone 5S. GPU and CPU are both weaker in the Redmi.considering, unlocked, it costs like what £400 - £500 less than an iphone it's pretty damn amazing.
Definitely not faster than S5 or iPhone 5S. GPU and CPU are both weaker in the Redmi.
i decide to buy this phone too.anybody had sound too weak about this phone.the ear speaker & incoming call sound
I wanted to ask around from Malaysia. It's priced at RM509 but there are two variables? The price is great and very strong phablet to me. Do you think it outshines iPhone 5S and Samsung S5 slightly? Would this fare well in lots of awesome 3D games?

i'm from malaysia and some of us have been experiencing the same too. but not me though since i'm using a strong cellular network which has strong 3G network everywhere. there's no way to solve this for the moment so you might want to change to other strong cellular network to use 3G. hope this helps :)
Xiaomi Redmi Note is now becoming a Craze.Nobody is in ease without this Redmi . It spells on minds of everyone.But the problem is a Big issue you can not buy it in market because availability is zero.this is very troublesome annoying.fans depressed greatly becoming sick.rubbish copy of Redmi will introduce in markets when the original Redmi will come in market.
I am using the Redmi Note WCDMA, kickass phone but when I put it on only 3G it does not connect to the cellular network at all. Anyone facing a similar issue ? I am based in India.
philipster, 08 Jul 2014this will never get updated to 4.3 due to the mediatek chip. mehStop spreading FUD, Kitkat 4.4.2 is available for the Mediatek SoCs MT6592, MT6588, MT6589, MT6589T. Lenovo already upgraded lots of Mediatek-based phones to Kitkat, even ones released over a year ago.
So if Xiaomi doesn't upgrade their phones to kitkat, it's on them not Mediatek.
