Browse This Page

The Xiaomi Mi3 has been a drop of evil for a lot of people, some have waited through the three sales patiently trying to get one of these chinese “wonder phones”. On August 12th 2014, at 2:00 pm the Xiaomi Mi3 will go on sale yet again, this time with a proported 20,000 handsets, says online shopping website Flipkart.

If you really want to buy a Xiaomi Mi3 this time around, here are a few tips to better your chances of scoring one of these budget bad boys.

1. Pre Register

Possibly the most obvious tip, you need to pre register to buy the phone, so go ahead and do it by : Clicking Here


2. Know the Time

The Xiaomi Mi3 will go on sale at precisely 2:00 pm IST on the 12th of August, so try and reach the buying page at least an hour earlier, even though it seems like overkill.

3. Multiple device logins

Try being online from multiple devices, preferably on different internet connections; in order to have different I.P. addresses accessing the site, this will improve your chances and bring to one step closer to buying a Xiaomi Mi3.

4. Flipkart App

The Flipkart app uses a separate server and has a higher chance of “not failing” at the time of sale. If you want to buy a Xiaomi Mi3 the app might prove to be easier, “might being the key word.



5. Super Refresh times 40,000

When the sale starts, most people are struggling to open the webpage, ctrl+R / f5 (refresh) is your best friend, hit it till you get a page to buy a Xiaomi Mi3. (cmd+R on a mac). Other people have reported opening several tabs being helpful.



6. Cart it!

If you do get a page loaded, add that phone to the cart like there is no tomorrow, once you have the handset in your cart, your chances have just gone up from 1 in a million to 50:50 in order to buy a Xiaomi Mi3.

cart cart 1


7. Patience

Once you have it in your cart, attempt payment by refreshing several times, in most cases you won’t be able to make payments due to overloads on the server so keep trying.Here the app helps too.

Also, if the website fails completely, there is a very high chance that the phone is in your cart when Flipkart comes back online, thats the perfect moment for you to buy a Xiaomi Mi3.

Once you do get through to the payment section and make your payments in whatever the mode you select, pat yourself on the back sir, you my friend are a lucky owner of the coveted Xiaomi Mi3.

    Do you know that by using the Android device manager you can find your phone’s location if it’s stolen or lost.  You can even make a call to your device even if the SIM card is replaced by a new one. You can lock your device remotely and you can even erase all the confidential data that is present in the phone.I found this info here,

    Xiaomi has tested the patience! This is too much…I am trying from last 3 flash sales to buy it but not successful…I believe xiaomi doesnt takes us indians seriously, we are paying a good price and not asking the phone for free. I had no option other than opting for Moto G, because i wanted a phone. Xiaomi should have done a good market research, stocked their inventory properly before entering a big mass market like India. Very unhappy with Xiaomi!!

  • Akshay Babbar

    already have it

  • gopalpg

    if they are selling MI3 this way, for sure customers will move to other brands and slowly MI3 will fade .  Indians are already used to booking a tatkal train ticket and again buying MI3 is similar to that, so no one would waste time again and again for this phone. I logged in and waited for 1 hour but when the time came, I got a message that there was no stock. Got pissed off and will not buy MI3 at all, there are so many alternatives which I will choose, dont want to waste time again just for this phone when we have so many important things in life to take care …

    why not ?
    1.its made of cheap plastic or half plastic but design not that great.
    2.there have been regular reports of mi3 sharing ur personal data though u cannot trust any of the speculations,a comman man like us can never find the right answer. service centers as of now,what if u get a defective phone or any problem later?.
    4.only thing good its priced perfect for its specs but u do have a lot of other options from local companies like micromax,lava etc moto is far better aswell and well established. i said before the phone is grest for its specs and price but its too too early to trust xiaomi.
    6.also mi4 is comig that will be even better .
    7.another china maker will indian market in a couple of months called one plus one.
    8.i am guessing it wont get updates even if it does,it will take long…at the end its a compete personal choice..rather than finding the best phone find a phone best for u…

    Let me debunk some of the false statements made here:
    1. It is such a waste of time to be logged into Flipkart for an hour before the sale. However, if you do insist, spend the time window shopping or do some real shopping.
    2. No refresh i.e. pressing F5 button is needed. They enable the page using Javascript. So any number of refreshes wont help.
    3. Being connected from multiple tabs does not help, neither does it help to have multiple windows open. Your chances are finally in your “buy” action hitting the server. Doesnt matter how many windows you have open.
    4. Once the item is in your cart, you dont have to keep retrying. It is there for you. Trying to pay multiple times will only add to your confusion. You really dont want to pay multiple times and then sort out refunds. Wait for a while and then make the payment.

    Of course being on a fast network helps – like an office network. The mobile app goes over 3G at best and is not faster in any way.

    These are from my experiences in successfully buying a Mi 3 in the last sale.

  • BA BU

  • Yaseen Sharieff

  • Kaushal Jhobalia

    i saw a live mi3 device, it shows only 520mb free ram, with only 5 to 7 apps installed on it, whereas on nexus 5 it shows 1.1gb free ram with almost a full device of 16gb……still nexus runs like SILK SMOOTH…NEXUS 5 WINS…save more money, go for nexus 5 only……….
