Google has launched the Android One phones on 14th of September in India. The concept of Android One was already mentioned in the Google I/O in San Francisco. But a lot of people are confused about what exactly is this Android One? How Micromax Canvas A1, Karbon Sparkel V, Spice Dream Uno are related ? So lets dig more how Google came to this.
The latest block buster in smartphones, Xiaomi MI3’s sales are path breaking in India (atleast Xiaomi & Flipkart thinks so :P). The selling strategy of Xiaomi might seem very annoying to many, they have been following the same from the start. Xiaomi believes that this marketing strategy of selling limited units for only registered users and spreading the news of 2 sec and 5 sec sale would do good to them. It’s open for discussion as some support and some oppose. I am myself on the opposing side. But luckily I was able to get a MI3, thanks to Flipkart First Subscription. Now, it has been almost 2 weeks that I have MI3 with me. There have been a lot of positives and negatives we figured during the regular usage. I would be sharing my views about those strengths and weakness of Xiaomi MI3. If you are reading this post, I shall assume that you already know the specifications and the price, so I wont be focusing on that.
As soon as the specifications of Xiaomi MI3 and Asus Zenfone phones along with the launching dates in India were out, the hot topic among most of the smart phone users & buyers is which would be the best choice in the budget range of 10-20K. For almost 5 months, Moto G has totally captured the market of budget android phone in India. Though we can say that MI3 and Zenfone 5 had good startup sales and demand, we cannot say they have surpassed the craze of Moto G launch. One reason might be that, at the time of Moto G launch, it was the clear winner and only option available for brand conscious ones. Now that there are 3 options with different positives and negatives comparable, the buyer gets trapped in a confusion about which one to take. If the buyer is specific about his/her requirements, the choice would be easier, but it is not as simple as it seems as all the three smart phones have head turner specifications.
The latest mid range android smart Phone “Xiaomi MI3” has created a wave after launching in India. Every one is interested in its specs & performance. Some are willing to take the risk and buy, while some are just waiting to observe its sales, performance and service and take the decision. Looking at the specs of Xiaomi MI3, one can easily say that this is not a mid range smart phone but a premium phone. The specifications are almost same as Nexus 5, Xperia Z ultra, LG G2 which are double the price of Xiaomi MI3. Taking a risk is definitely worth it and also Xiaomi MI3 has its fan base spread all over the world and it has good forum support to get quick suggestions and trouble shoot. But does it really out perform the high end phones like Nexus 5 is what every one looking into. Frankly speaking, the affordable cost for such high end specs of Xiaomi MI3 comes with a price to pay for. One of that is the heating issue.
