    Yygatech, can you help figure out what is going on in Xiaomi PH.? Looks like the Facebook page is not being updated since November and there are devices that have been stuck at the service center for a long time. Is Xiaomi just downsizing or abandoning the country?

    Does the capacitive buttons have backlight kaya? The previous Redmi phones have none.

    P5,000 when converted. Yung mga gray market sellers na pupunta sa china para bumili niyan at iuwi dito papatungan pa, pag binenta nasa P8k na. Ibang klase. Yung low cost marketing strategy ng Xiaomi nawawalan ng saysay dahil pinagkakakitaan nitong mga sellers na to. Ok lang mag patong, wag naman masyado.

    Usually may 20% mark up ang official xiaomi sa lazada, so more less nasa 6k ito pag official release. Pwede na rin.
