Buyers are finding it increasingly difficult to get their hands on a Mi 3 on the day of sale. After the first sale lasted for about 40 minutes, the next two sales have wrapped up in five seconds and two seconds respectively. These flash sales have frustrated buyers to no end, and Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra had to apologize for it. Barra admitted that the company underestimated the demand for Mi 3 in India.

    Good to see they are increasing the no.of devices every week.
    I think they are trying to avoid the lots of bad press they are receiving because of low no.of devices on sale and huge demand.

    Obviously they don’t want to mess the huge market like India. May be they are prioritizing India now after seeing the huge popularity in the last 3 sales.
