Hi,

I found this site called xiaomidevice.com. Has anyone ordered from here before and are they a scam or no? They seem pretty legit and they have quite alot of models but i can't seem to find much about their reliability.
Thanks

Always buy from mi.sg, if the products which mi.sg not selling, you can boufht from sim lim square.  ...

That shop may not be official but reliable, as most cheap phone i bought from them had no problem at all.
In fact, beside that shop, they do have other related shops on 3rd level &or 5th level.

Things to note that Telcos only get certain models for purchase &or contract.
I would say that shop do get their supplies from reliable Suppliers.
Suppliers, like Telcos, buy in big quantity in order to get better discount &or rebates.
That is why shop, as mentioned, able to sell at retail price plus goodies, if any.
Then Supplier pass to these type shops for selling.
If the shop customer want that particular model and the shop no stock, so they get from other shops with stock available.
This is how they manage not to engage in competition with other shops.
This is the way they do communicate and whatever discount &or commission is shared.
And warranty is almost as good as Telcos.
Even if you get from Telcos, the handset may do have problem &or defect.
Worst is that there is no 1 to 1 replacement if the buyer walk out of the Telco shops.

As whether the handset having problem, there are certain way Manufacturer & Distributor know.
As i was in-charge of Warranty at Distributor and do directly to the Manufacturer.
To understand better on how Manufacturer & Distributor detect on whether the handset is problematic or not.
This is due to the way Manufacturer in dealing with parts suppliers.
Manufacturer include a certain code, such is "Batch Numbers" to identify who supplier the defective parts.
When you send to the Distributor Service Center, they will able to identify if it is Manufacturer defect or not.

Recently, someone had a problem with  Redmi Note 2 that is really defective, bought from Telco.
But mine was not, as i told him that since day-1 there are no problem, ask him to send to Service Center.
A few days later, he told me that the Service Center give him a 1 to 1 replacement, without question.
And told me after that replacement, no more problem.
So, it is confirmed that most probably it is due to certain batch which have the defective parts.

Some times ago, someone on this forum complaint of Redmi Note 2 having all sort of problems.

Buying direct from mi.sg may also have defective handset, who knows.

Yeah i saw the shops at sim lim square the other day, but i read on the xiaomi forum that those shops aren't official and they're selling export sets so there's no warranty even though they claim that they're official?

Always buy from official store or telco other than this 2 official channel. Don't bother as you might get a export or a fake set. Be it in Lazada, Carousell or Sim Lim Square they can claim to be authentic but who knows it is authentic or not. Without purchasing you won't know it just by looking at the photo. Always get from official source without worrying of authenticity.

I bought from sim lim square 4th storey, a xiaomi shop but I know they were not authorised by mi.sg. But they gave me shop warranty for one year which is better than online shop. I required them to write a clause of original xiaomi set, else will needed a refund. my redmi note 2 prime was an original set with china stable rom. So I rooted it with twrp 3 and on dev global rom now.
