After waiting for an eternity, Xiaomi have decided to launch MI3 in India starting on July 15th 2014. I have been a big fan of MIUI and availability of official MIUI supported device locally is thing to cheer for. I have to proclaim that MIUI group has been more creative community from very early stages. MIUI has been the top variety of Android Custom Skin. Vanilla version on its own and Cyanogenmod do not bring the appeal to use Android much, neither have Samsung TouchWiz and Sony's skin [Xperia?]. Off late, HTC Sense and LG Optimus UI have given some sort of direction for Android L to progress with. But MIUI's blend of iOS elegance and Android's versatility has a special place and a highly devoted fanclub.
The segment (between Rs.10k to Rs.26k) was initially dominated by Samsung with Grand variants is now smeared by Micromax which is seeded to become India's top mobile vendors. Xiaomi's entry into Indian market at the price of Rs.14999 will be highly competitive.
