POLL: What Do You Think of Xiaomi’s Trend Of Updating A Lineup With A New Model Every Few Months?

by Joe 4

We all are big fans of Xiaomi, a company which was given us so many great smartphones, from the budget segment to the high-end market. But in the past 12 months, the company has released so many smartphones in a lineup that it’s actually a bit confusing as to which model to buy.

But that’s not the worse part. What really is confusing is whether to buy the new model or wait a few months till another model in the series is launched. And from the models that have been announced in the past few months by the company, the new ones will be better than the models released before, and will cost almost the same price. So, you would probably end up getting more value for your money, if you are ready to wait.

While this means that consumers get better specced phones for their price, it also leaves the early smartphone adopters a bit disappointed. For some, the upgraded specs may not be a big deal, but for others, a slight difference in the specs would make a big difference in their buying decision.

So, we are wondering what you think is the ideal update policy for smartphone companies. Should companies update the lineup with a new model within a few months, or should they leave a gap of at least 6 months before releasing an update?

    For the Budget, i think they are trying to keep up to the competition,everytime you see a Meizu $100 you see a xiaomi in couple of days

    Another question is : how many phones can a company maintain and provide support with updated roms.

    six months is ok IF the phone models are a bit less in number …

    I’m all for the rapid release of many phones the way Xiaomi does it simply because the price of their earlier models very quickly come down. In Xiaomi’s case, you can still get a fantastic phone with most of the recent features at a bargain price from a company that has a pretty good reputation for reliability and quality. I’m happy to purchase an “older generation” phone because by the time I buy it most of the reviews have been done and any significant bugs have either been fixed or the phone is red flagged as a don’t buy. I’m a Xiaomi convert and always look forward to their announcements so I can snap up a bargain.
