Bloomberg: Xiaomi Phone Shipments: -38%


And here I am, sitting in Shanghai, still looking at a ton of people hoping to buy phones, devices and all other things on the flash sale every morning at 10:00 and failing every day because flash sale is such a great idea! /s

Seriously though, Xiaomi – get your devices into your stores and in stock faster – I don’t want to walk into your store and every single time get the same sentence “We’re sold out”. That’s not how you sell things. Seriously, I am not even exaggerating – I walked into the Xiaomi Store in Shanghai over 5 times so far asking about Mi5 Pro or even Mi Band 2 and never got them. Not to mention online flash sale of those – which give you exactly 0% chance to get those as well.

Full report on the sales is on Bloomberg.
