While it is Chinese tech that brings us together, it is a known (and rather painful) fact that importing a device overseas is a high-risk and at times, a very painstaking task. For international fans, Chinese companies like Xiaomi coming up with cost-effective phones with amazing specs like the Mi3 only adds insult to injury!
While we’re not short on reasons why Xiaomi should go global, a technology enthusiast who goes by the name of ‘MiksTech’ has taken a more vocal approach and we’re all ears! Give him a few minutes and listen to what he has to say about Xiaomi in general, Xiaomi Mi3 in specific and why companies like Xiaomi should target a much wider audience (and cater to them).

Xiaomi Mi3: Where’s the hype?
We’re not sure how many more MiksTechs it’ll take for Xiaomi to pay heed to this plea of technology fans, but we hope it isn’t too long before they at least start shipping globally, maybe like OPPO. After all, it will only result in greater popularity for them!
Thanks to Simon for the tip!
Stopped reading at “Teenager” but on a serious note watched the video and the kid did make some good points but even if Xiaomi went international or opened a international online store (they do have a online store for china natives) its highly unlikely that it would be the same price as it is in china.
International store opening means higher prices due to overseas shipping. But it will stable prices. As in China, where price stable and included shipping cost.
Hey, don’t be to quick to make a decision (although most of my generation are embarrassments to society.) Thanks for the compliments though 🙂 -MiksTech
Prices for Xiaomi products already differ in China. The Hongmi WCDMA Version from the Xiaomi store isn’t 799 RMB but 1100 RMB for instance. If they will sell overseas I hope they only add shipping fees.
this kidis a littlecrazy ..Hetiedneedfulnotsit onyoutube
I woke up at 04:30 in the morning, went to my laptop and tried to buy an Hongmi at xiaomis sell-out. What I saw really disappointed me. First of all the Hongmi was sold out in sekonds, so I had no chance to buy one due to waiting in line and this line seemed to be huge. Then when i saw the mi2 was still in stock I clicked on the “Buy” button and was able to proceed to the shopping cart and give them my address. What I saw there was the second bad experience. You have to choose a state. Not the state like your country is, but one chinese province out of the list. So it’s unpossible to make shure they ship a briquette to you (if you don’t have a F-code, but there is no one I have heared about, who got this mysterious code).
So guys do not try to get your hands on their phones trough the official online store. You will do better if you get more sleep!!!
The official Xiaomi store is only for China, Hong Kong and Taiwan at the moment. Maybe http://www.xiaomi.com/en will have a future store.
Maybe they will. But today they announced to open a chain of retail
stores. But instead to offer the full line-up, they will sell there
T-shirts and other fan-stuff & accessories. So we will have to wait
until they increased the production to fullfill worldwide demands.
