Gizchina.com - Feb 21, 2013 - One unfortunate mobile user (or fortunate because he didn't die) bought a fake Xiaomi and it consequently lead to his battery exploding:


Reports have come in of a Xiaomi owner in Chongqing who was shocked to see their quad-core Mi2 explode! To be more accurate the battery appears to have overheated to the point that it melted through the plastic rear shell!



Luckily the owner of the phone didn’t have it in hand, or pocket when the incident occurred, but this hasn’t stopped hundreds of thousands of Xiaomi Mi2 owners to keep a safe distance from their phones.

I'm sure Xiaomi does quality checks to ensure the phone's stablity because if anything of this sort happen it would be a big deal! This a reminder to just spend a few more bucks, and buy the real phone.  

Also, for those who can't get access to Xiaomi phones to be a cautious consumer! Avoid shady buyers and websites like the ones pointed out previously on this forum:

Good thing the owner is now, and his lesson is to buy the original Xiaomi phone and not the fake once

Well the only real thing you can do against fake phones is increase the production numbers of the real ones to satisfy the market need. if you cant get a (real) mi-phone of course many try different ways then the official website.
