Bangi, 27 Feb 2019Agreed I trying to find a way to get one of these phones any ideas?Well wait for official sale.
On some pages this phone can be very cheap.
And its official price in china will be 2999 CNY which translates to 393 euros.
But european price will be from 430 up to 460 euros depends on coutry you shop in and the greed of the shop you buy in.
Some Eshops can have it very cheap but i can understand some greedy companies can sell it even for 600 you have to try your luck.

In China, this phone are "pre-sold" before it even open for public bidding. This is monopolized by deader who has connection with the company selling them. They will then sell at a higher price in Tao Bao or any market. This has been going on for years. Nothing new. If you don't believe try Tao Bao after a few weeks and you will notice prices are more expensive.

Anonymous, 26 Feb 2019Better screen, better audio, better updates, faster phone, no ad... moreAnd you're copy of other anonymous who write just like that, on every Xiaomi article in last 10 days. Do you work for food here, to post such nonsense everytime, or what? Ads does not exist in Xiaomi phones because everybody with IQ more than 50 can disable them in 10 sec. Why you can't? Acutally does not matter..
Another time at least try to find something more realistic. We get it, you dont like Xiami brand MIUI is to complicated for you, thats ok, but stop with this and go works something useful :D

Gone are the times when Xiaomi sold batches in 1-4 seconds every time, time after time after time. Now they last almost a minute...

Anonymous, 26 Feb 2019Better screen, better audio, better updates, faster phone, no ad... moreDude, that's the reason Xiaomi is cheap because they copy straight from their competitors. That's the Second Mover advantage. Oneplus also does that. I am thankful that they do that.. copy the good features, dont copy the bad ones, and charge us some cheap price. The customers are the winners in this and you should thank them for that. They dont need to innovate, they just need to wait for their competitors to introduce new features and if the masses like it... then they shall copy it. Easy.

Winm, 26 Feb 2019For that pay $1100 to Samsung, LG, Sony, etc. Or buy a two years... moreDude, we're talking about Xiaomi here. Not the greedy Samsung, Apple, and Google who offer less features, low specs and charge us big. This is Xiaomi and this company makes wonders with its price. They even gave us a flagship at $300. That should improve in the coming years and it is just right to demand cheaper prices from their flagship. We indians love Xiaomi because of these super cheap flagships and if they cannot offer these flagship features for $300-$400 then we will ditch this brand. We ask for these features for a cheap price tag because they are Xiaomi.

The Mi Mix 3 was released at the same time as the Honor 2 and they are not similar (even their similarity, the hidden camera, works completely different). What's funny is that the Mi Mix series was always a leader, the original Mi Mix was the first near bezel-less phone that others copied. The Mi Mix 2 went further, with no top bezel without a notch.

sucks even as a phone ...

= midrange radio support (only few 3G, 4G bands supported!)
this fooling piece has not much to do with a real flagship,

but for sure best in cheating in benchmarks, as usual
and paying for DXO scores lol

In Europe no ones care, MI 9 just cheap junk.

I said it many times, this flash sale thing is the most dumb idea in the world, it may work with small new companies that want attention but come on xiaomi, time to grow up. Flash sale hurt the sale volumes big time, by the time the product is available in enough suply for all colors and variants it's already a cold product and people loose interested plus we are pressed to go for resellers and pay more. A terrible example are the airdots that even after 2 months aren't available in the mi shops and resellers aak for almost double the price, absolutely ridiculous and outrageous

Sold tons of xiaomi phones in my shop every mobnth and no customer complained.
You only complain because you never had xiaomi just a fake brands like Samsung or Sony which cost 3-4 times more than manufacturing price but gives nothing extra for its price compared to Mi9.
Even at theses pages it has been said Mi9 scored most of the benchmark score and Doxmark score so for real this phone is awesome and you cant deny it no matter what.
