The Xiaomi Mi3 has managed to attract numerous Indian clients. However, lots buyers experienced frustration because of the problems in getting the gadget. The Indian customers were so dissatisfied that the Hugo Barra, the vice president of the international operation division of Xiaomi had to come out and ask for apologies in the name of the entire company. The vice president promised not to repeat the mistakes that company made with the so popular Mi 3.
Hugo Barra recognized that his company actually underestimated the huge demand extant on the Indian market. For this reason they were forced to make important supply constraints and Xiaomi found itself in the impossibility to respond to all demands coming from customers. The Xiaomi representative assured the Indian clients that the company had learnt a lot from the experience and it would not underestimate the Indian market in the future. Thus, when the Redmi 1 S reaches the Indian market, there will be enough units to satisfy all customers’ demands.

Nonetheless, the users will still be frustrated by the Mi3 lack of availability. The Chinese company revealed that for the 12th of August 2014, it will make available around 20,000 units. However, this is not enough since 75,000 buyers have already registered for a new phone. The vice-president Barra presented his apologizes to the Indian public.
