Although Xiaomi has managed to become one of the most preferred brands in the budget segment, the buyers get angered by the flash sale model followed by Xiaomi. We think after becoming a brand to resonate with, especially in markets like India, Xiaomi should strip the flash sale model altogether. Every time we publish a story on Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 series sale, we get comments dissing Xiaomi for sticking with the flash sale model. Many buyers even resorted to buying other phones as they couldn’t get the Redmi Note 7 after several attempts in the flash sale. We hope Xiaomi is listening to its fans in India. Also, one must ponder that the sales figure for the Redmi Note 7 series could have been even better if the company had it on open sale instead of the flash sale.
