It seems like Xiaomi has been achieving significant sales figures with each passing week. A look at the Mi 3 specs and price, and it's not hard to see why. Xiaomi has been using its flash sale strategy in India, which may help maintain the hype and achieve large numbers, but this could get really annoying for customers and serve as a hurdle in building brand loyalty. In fact, grabbing a unit of Xiaomi on Flipkart is being compared to booking a tatkal ticket on the IRCTC site, and most us know what that means.
As expected, the Xiaomi Mi 3's fifth batch was sold out even before one could snap their fingers. The company doesn't use any kind of advertising and relies on its social media channels to reveal the launch dates and other information. Xiaomi devices have got popular by mere word of mouth that spreads through people and social channels. So we decided to check what people have to say. What could be a better place than Twitter to vent out one's frustrations and enthusiasm.
From calling it a nightmare to feeling super-excited after finally grabbing unit, here's are some of the Twitter reactions to today's Xiaomi Mi 3 sellout:

Xiaomi Mi3 is going out of stock on Flipkart faster than India's batting order during the last test match.

The Xiaomi Mi3 sale on flipkart is a con-job. The vendor should be charged with online fraud.
