  1. No we don’t want another “CHINKO” , unless they have something new to offer.

    Right now , all I want is Xiaomi!!!

  2. xiaomi products are expensive for the average Nigerian user… I am nt sure they will break down the monopoly of their oda chinko brethens…lol.

  3. Taye I disagree! Please Google about Xiaomi and read on how much they sell their phones.

  4. Whether expensive or not let’s have the much talked about products first and let people who can afford buy.After all the likes of iPhone, samsung,Sony are here and people are buying despite their prices.

  5. People forget that how much Xiaomi sell their phones for officially in other markets may not be true when sold in Nigeria. Don’t be fooled by conversion prices.

    Xiaomi don’t seem to be in any hurry for the African market. You’ll just have to keep buying grey imports if you want one.
