    i got 1 xiomi in 2nd attempt today but WTF is this . i used 8 laptops and 8 different flipkart accounts and 8 mbps airtel internet connection all the time and i got only 1 in 2nd attempt. what is this. this is ximoi not apple, what do these guys think. of them. by this they can create market?

    same thing is happening with xiomi 10400 mah battery pack. luckily i got 6 and now that i also out of stock. when a company is not enough capable to producing goods then think of service. our handsets will be in service center for months for a minor defect also.

    now u all people should think 8 computers + 8 flipkart accounts + 8 mbps airtel internet connection and 2 attempts because of 2 sales that is in total of 16 attempts of 2 sales and i got only 1 mobile. abe india ko fuddu samjhate hai kya ye chinese log. india is the biggest mobile market in world.

      many like you are selling on olx for premium(black)…


      (September 12, 2014 - 11:18 am)

      Many greedy people like you who are trying to make a killing through dishonest means are depriving the real people who wants to own this smartphone. you guys should be ashamed of yourself. shame on you and your creed. Didnt your parents teach you that you can earn through some honest means instead of selling these phones at higher price in OLX ebay. This applies to all those bugggers who are trying to make a killing by ordering this phone and reselling it at a higher price. bloody cheats. morons


        (September 12, 2014 - 11:21 am)

        you are idiot ? when did i say i am selling it ? i am ordering for myself and family. open ur minds before opening mouth.


          (September 12, 2014 - 12:44 pm)

          dont try to defend yourself….you ordered 6 powerbanks!! Well normal folks like us dont order 6 powerbanks. So better shut up, curl your tail and run away. Its not me but you who is an idiot. read your words before commenting bro. You got 6 powerbanks!! which normal person orders 6 powerbanks?


            (September 12, 2014 - 12:52 pm)

            cant u read i got only 1 mobile. normal folks don’t have friends like me who all are into mobiles.all the time so we grabbed the power-bank deal it was easily available earlier. you are not luck enough so dont cry dude try next time. if i get more than 1 mobiles i will give it to anyone in need.


            (September 12, 2014 - 2:20 pm)

            dude you wrote “luckily i got 6”. re read what you wrote. so i assume u got 6 powerbanks. Aint it? I have a mi3 which i got in my 3rd attempt. No i dont have friends who will give me mobiles. Its a mobile at the end of the day so i dont believe in such a mad rush. I dont need your mobiles. Give to somebody who genuinely wants it.

    Bu11Sh!t… Even with 3L registrations, they are bringing the same 40k quantity for sale… They are keen in creating records of sold out in 1 sec or 2 sec only and NOT really interested in sales, imho…


    (September 9, 2014 - 1:31 pm)

    If not getting the handset today, will bid Goodbye to Xiaomi once & for all, as if a company can’t manage the new orders how can it manage the service???? Asus Zenfone 5 will be my preferred choice as & when it is available…


      (September 9, 2014 - 2:26 pm)

      As I wrote earlier… Goodbye Xiaomi !!!

      Will Pick up Asus Zenfone 5 whenever available… another option could be MM Canvas Nitro, launched y’day…

      Not registering for the sale anymore…. F^&? Ø()? , XIAOMI !


        (September 9, 2014 - 2:55 pm)

        same here man! but fucking flipkart is keeping zenfone5 out of stock.. fuck xiaomi, they have giving rise to a black market, ppl charging 1k+ for that fone, instead if xiaomi hikes price and produces more qty, it would make ppl happy..but then they wont get hype…

          asus is keeping zenfone out of stock ,not flipkart


            (September 13, 2014 - 9:18 pm)

            No its not.


            (September 15, 2014 - 3:04 pm)

            Asus couldn’t do anything with the website of Flipkart, which has been behaving weird since they have become exclsuive partners for few brands… Zenfone 5 stocks were shown as available on FK, however, sporadically… I was able to order on one instance when system could accept orders for Zenfone 5…

            Having said that, it is bad any which way for companies involved… be it FK / Asus / Xiaomi.

            Moto was quick learner, but, they also had money power to muscle their way through supply chain for immediate effect when they faced stock outs earlier this year… They have learnt that lesson well… new Moto G is available for anyone to pick up from FK anytime…. !!!

          also xiomi cant suddenly increase their production,they are doing 40,000 per week.that is 1.6 lakh phones per month.

          even moto g and e when it came out went out of stock like this


            (September 15, 2014 - 2:57 pm)

            It’s not 1,60,000…get your numbers right… Xiaomi is present in quite a few countries like India, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore & China (there can be more)…. they follow same model of flash sales everywhere… & then, they call themselves a startup… I hope you have the aptitude for numbers to calculate…

            All the best for your number crunching !


          (September 15, 2014 - 2:52 pm)

          As said, picked up Asus Zenfone 5 (8GB, Gold) on satuday… Loss for Xiaomi, Gain for Asus !
