Xiaomi is the due punishment for companies like Apple and Samsung. If they were not so greedy reaching to the extremes, there would not be a Xiaomi reaching to the extreme lows. Do you even realize what Xiaomi says or this video says to us? That Xiaomi makes a very small profit, what else? That the "quality companies"were making 100 percent a few years ago, and that they now make minimum 200 percent and possibly as much 400 percent. Now, why would I be sympathetic to this as a consumer?

You can't raise your prices forever because markets demand it, or having everlasting increase in sales, because shareholders once read a book about economics and think they know a thing or two. There are only a finite number of consumers and a ceiling to sales. Even more so, when consumers start to realize you try to rbb them. When I hear that x company doesn't go well because it "only" sold 200 million devices and should have sold more , because only that would be an increase and thus likeable to the eyes of greedy and ignorant investors, it gets ridiculous.

The only reason why Xiaomi and many other Chinese companies could go with this low profit model is because of Chinese government support. However, with Chinese economy showing major signs of decline, I wonder how much longer Chinese government can keep supporting many failing companies.

Well, now I feel guilty. I bought a Poco and changed to custom ROM almost day one. So I basically hacked their business model. But even through this, I had to interact with Xiaomi "services". I needed their software to "unlock" my phone (first time ever I have to do this to install a ROM) and the reason why I had to change the ROM "almost" day one is that I had to wait 76 hours after the first try (purposedly, with a timer) to do so. Originally, it was 3 months but costumers complained. I guess it's a way to try to make costumers stay on MIUI and use their services. Too bad for them, MIUI, even the poco version, is just bad.

Freemium is allways about having 10% of the users paying while 90% avoid payment. Look at Spotify. Also PR might be difficult to grasp for tech enthusiasts, but marketing is easy to understand as it's about mechanics. Make shitty software = creating a market for support and coaching Make randomly failing laptops = creating a marked for financial services like apple care... Make Minecraft updates exclusive to XBOX = make everyone that loved minecraft hate you, nourishing the deamon that secretly powers your business.

@5:20 what a croc of BS. Seriously, why do you want to put a bad image on this brand ? I find Xiaomi is an amazing company. They are giving a huge amount of jobs to people in china and india (a big % of women in such macho-dominant countries) , I have had xiaomi phones for a long time and I havent spent anything at all during ownership (as you suggest @2:35 ). Yes there is bloatware, and sowhat? Just dont use it, hide it in a folder away from your usual apps and thats gone and never opened, geez.. You know, not everyone is as easily brainwashed by bad companies like Apple or Samsung making really shitty products (check Louis Rossmann repair videos) and getting profit from customers getting some brain jerk-off pleasure. Chinese companies are really great to buy from, I order a lot of stuff from aliexpress and have always had a great customer service and attention to any defect if anything happens. I actually hope brands like Xiaomi and many others will continue to make a lot of profit and sink those brands that have been in the market offering shitty products and service.

I think nowadays people buys xiaomi because of it's great specification in an affordable package. Also the community is kind of backlash the "internet things" as you mention in xiaomi as many of the user simply switch to another operating system that nearly no xiaomi apps installed on it. Also i think almost all of the xiaomi internet services is not available outside china.

Miui positive: They think about services. themes, storage alternative to Google. Miui negative: They rebind the Google play services error reporting. When an app crashes, Xiaomi get's the error report, not the dev through google - even when this is where the app is from.

What Xiaomi should be doing is spinoff the high end phone segment as a subsidiary but a separate unit where Xiaomi makes good margins on phones that don't have that cheap Mi brand on them. Nobody buys a Mi flagship even if its better and cheaper than Iphone when it has that stupid Mi logo on it. Xiaomi parent should continue to focus on selling as many affordable phones as possible in the hope that people pay for internet services. Basically don't put all eggs in one basket.

@Krishna Mohan I understand where you coming from. Myself grow up in an environment where there are zero Chinese brands available. Most of the reputable brands and premium brands are mainly from Us, Europe, Japan and Korea. Factually Europeans brands must sound European like Siemens, Philips and Maserati, Toyota, Mitsubishi for Japan and so on. We expect Chinese brands to sound Chinese. Stereotypical Chinese makes are always copies from elsewhere. Looking at current Chinese mobile, I would think they make good progress nowadays by going into R & D. Xiaomi had huge presence in India, I'm not sure if it true Indian consumer is kinda price conscious, even Apple struggled in India. Huawei is one of the big three in Europe along with Samsung and Apple. Surely build quality of these brands should be good which justify their market share. Sad to say despite what these Chinese companies do, they always being brand as copies. Apple is no longer innovative compare to Steve Job time. Samsung S and Note series are mild evolution of their predecessors. There are consumers willing to pay for that exorbitant price (which I'm fine. It's not my money anyway). Annoying part is there are brand snob really convince only certain smartphone manufacturer are only allow to compete in high end segment.

@Global Harmony Xiaomi wouldn't even exsist if Apple and Samsung were not so greedy. They are taking a huge chunk of the market the former megarich companies thought they had loyalty from. They are going to learn the hard way that people are not dumb enough to pay $1k doller phones when there is not much different from a $500 phone.
