So many were quite excited that the really popular Xiaomi of flash sales and online sales resulting in good prices came into Kenya. But their entry marked a new direction that we hadn’t anticipated. Offline market development as opposed to the famous flash sales and cutting of the middle-man.
So I may be the only one but I feel that the brand has not lived up to this hype in Kenya. First they are quite invisible, then they sell dated flagships. the Xiami RedmiNote 2 when there is Note 3 and 4 already in many markets (I’m talking about official channels, since they sell via Orange).
Does the brand still excite like it did before official entry to Kenya?
