Greetings Dear MIUIers & MI Fans,

     On 14th November 2017, IDC has published its reports for Q3 2017 & revealed that Xiaomi India has stepped up in the ranking to #1 Smartphone Brand in India by selling more than 9.2 Million smartphones, with the 23.5% market share and Xiaomi has continued to be the fastest growing brand in India with 250% yoy growth! Congratulations Xiaomi for the wonderful achievement within just 3 years of entry in Indian Market.

    Xiaomi has started its journey in India with the launch of smartphone Mi3 via. official partner, Flipkart in the month of July 2014! Mi3 was the 1st smartphone in India offering Snapdragon 800 chipset below Rs.15000! Xiaomi has received more than 1 lakh registrations for the 1st sale of Mi3 scheduled on 22nd July & Flipkart site has crashed as soon as it went on sale! It's how success story of Xiaomi has begun in India!


     Mi3 got 4.5 out of 5 user rating in India based on user ratings on Flipkart! But, every success story has the other side, in August 2014 leading newspapers in India highlighted that Xiaomi collects & send data from phone to its servers in China! This kind of blame was really downing for a newly introduced brand, but Xiaomi had overcome the mess & continued to grow with Hugo Barra, Former Vice-President, Xiaomi!

     Rising up through the amidst of the blame game, Xiaomi on 26th August 2014, launched a new Redmi series in India with Redmi 1S which was priced surprisingly lowest at Rs.5999 only! Redmi 1S was packed with a 4.7-inch HD IPS display, powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400(MSM8228) processor with Adreno 305 GPU & runs on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) based MIUI ROM. It has a 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash & f/2.2 aperture.


     On the same day, Hugo Barra has revealed some of the future plans of Xiaomi during an Interview by Rohit Khurana, Editor, Intelect Digest.

     Redmi 1S has received more than 2.5 lakh registrations for its first flash sale & sold out just within 4.2 seconds on 2nd September 2014! However, Xiaomi has been critisized a lot for its flash sale model which had left behind the masses of unsatisfied customers who can't grab the phone in its 1st flash sale!


      The best thing behind Xiaomi's success is that its higher authorities too work at the ground level.

Redmi Note 3 & Redmi 3s were big hits in India. But You are not giving Nougat to these phones by which You are that much successful.... Even you are not giving MIUI 9 update in time.... Well played Xiaomi!!!
Thank U....

Mi in India has a great history, and there are no ads. I don't see any Xiaomi ads in Singapore too.
