    Wisdom finally dawns on these jokers that cheap stunts get bragging rights but at the cost of customer goodwill. I would say Flipkart is the bigger looser as it had a reputation to protect/enhance but they went along with this ‘flash sale’s gimmick as its done elsewhere. Now hopefully the dust will settle down & both entities get down to the serious job of customer satisfaction.

    Redmi 1s ultimately gone out of stock at around 2:30pm (6.5hrs for 1.5 Lakh).
    Though this time it was in the stock more as order only got confirmed after payment.

      Hey, Xiaomi and flipkart announced the availability just one day before. That is on Oct 5 only. So very less people got to know about the sale. They wanted something like a slow sale, so the can tell that all wanted customers got redmi. If Xiaomi advertised it like other flash sales, it would have sold out in minites.
