At a price of INR 13,999/- brands like Xolo, Micromax gives the consumers Mediatek processors and sometimes brands like Motorola gives Qualcomm Quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and 1GB RAM.
As compared to any other good deals available in the market, Xiaomi Mi3 gives you a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked @ 2.3GHz, 2GB RAM, 13MP CMOS camera and many more.
For the same processor the Nexus 5 was bidding the lowest at around INR 30,000 when it entered into the market.
Apart from the price comparison, even it provides good materials inside and outside, whether it is the touch sensing display or magnesium alloy body frame.

For me it is like a never coming offer.

Just wait and watch how Indian market reacts to this.

Stay tuned to get the latest information.
