Plastic Body makes it loose the premium feel, still a very good competitor for many phablet smartphones in terms of pricing. Another set back i personally feel is its speaker location at the back of the phone. I always prefer the speaker to be on the bottom or at front side to get better audio while watching videos and better sound for incoming calls as well.

Anyway, its a good show today by Xiaomi entering Indian Smartphone market with its army. Stunning hardware specification with very competing price is one successful move to get a good root in Indian market. Partnering with Flipkart, is another great choice to sell more units in coming months.
