I can't wait to see what Xiaomi will bring with Hugo Barra. Oppo has been achieving simiilar success so far too.

Don't want this exploding in my face. I don't see why people buy these knock offs instead of puttin a few more bucks towards something that is quality stuff.

The price is phenomenal if you're on a budget. With that said, I won't be buying this phone or phones like it from this company. I am the type of person that likes to get the highest quality components. Not all camera modules, displays, software, and RAM sticks are created equal, just because it has a number tacked onto the spec sheet.

Xiaomi should go global...we need oem who sell high-end phones at reasonable price...MIUI feels like mix of iOS and Android...I had this rom couple of years ago on my galaxy s...and liked it compared to then stock froyo/gingerbread roms.

Well, put it this way, Xioami cannot afford poor quality handsets since one bad model will KILL the company. You are talking about a company (even though Chinese) operating in a country where its people are very vocal about consumer fairness especially towards companies. See some recent Apple complains in their media and Samsung complaints before. The affected companies quickly acted to fix the problems or else they will lose customers en-mass!. Also China is one country where its government is NOT controlled by Big Business unlike the US or UK!!!.
SO great deal on a great product. Pity you cannot get it elsewhere yet!.
