        Me and my friends ( 8 members ) want to buy redmi note 3 32 gb version from march 6th flash , till now we didnt get one. Some of us already have redmi note 2 prime, we know performance of redmi mobiles and decided to buy redmi note 3 , actually we are great fan of redmi mobiles .. Whoever calls me and ask me for a good mobile , without hesitation i say redmi prime. But now I really became a fool, sorry many indians became fool. So finally decided is 'NEVER BUY A REDMI MOBILE AND ITS PRODUCTS' . This is nothing but a frustation.lt;br/gt;Thank Q Hugo Burra... You really taught us a lesson. In future we will try to make our friends not to buy redmi products. Now we r going for Letv , Honor 5x .
