Questionable Quality Of Xiaomi Phones Sold In Nigeria by michaelwilli(m): 8:44am On May 24
I have heard from a couple people that Xiaomi phones sold in Nigeria are of terrible quality. Had a case of a redmi note 7 having board problems, another having software issues, a redmi note 10 with some parts of the screen not touching, just a few weeks after purchase. Does any one else have this kind of experience with a xiaomi phone bought in Nigeria?

I bought my redmi note 5 pro from aliexpress, still using it, two years and counting, never had issues with it.

michaelwilli such problem exist but they are few. However don't expect honest answer from this platform because Xiaomi fans will say otherwise

I think it's worth researching sha. Cos it's a thing of concern. Could mean xiaomi deliberately ships defective phones to Nigeria

Lmao. Why would you say they deliberately ship defective phones to Nigeria. A brand like Xiaomi that depends on word of mouth and don't do aggressive marketing. Every positive feedback means a lot to them. A few phones among a thousand sold being defective is a normal thing, I've had my fair share of it when I was using infinix. My hot 4 lite earpiece just suddenly went dead, next thing charging port, speakers, etc. And it happend in under two weeks of being newly purchased. When I went to fix it I was told it was board issue. I repaired it and continued using it till hot 6 came out, I bought it and a few months while using it, the screen went dead like completely dead. Didn't fall or anything.

So my point is a few defective phones is not a new thing and it's more common than you think. The reason why you hear about It more is that Xiaomi is not too keen on having repair shops littered everywhere. Third party repair shop is their way to go here.

I wouldn't underestimate the possible callousness of any entity. Why I'm a bit skeptical is I haven't heard this same complain from anyone who bought their phones on aliexpress. Although, what I heard is that the 9 series had a lot of defect. but 10 and above are very durable

I have been using redmi note 8 for 14 months now. Nothing, I mean nothing has been repaired on this my device. In fact I want to use it for 2yrs at least before thinking of changing.

Yes, I bought it from stores in Nigeria.
