Xiaomi MI3: Pre-order Now via Smart Postpaid

Just saw it in Twitter a few minutes ago. Xiaomi, one of the best selling phone brands in China is now available via Smart Postpaid! As of July 2014, it has sold over 57.36 million phones in the past 3 years!  Xiaomi is one of the most talked about phones this year because of it's affordability and high-end specs.

Being affordable doesn't mean that the quality is cheap. Their business model is not similar with other more famous Smartphone giants. They sell the phones almost at bill-of-material prices and to gain profit from the very narrow margin, they sell a phone model for up to 18-months instead of the short 6-months used by Samsung. Also, it sells other phone-related accessories other than themes and softwares.
