    • Abid Ali
      • P10 Lite & Mate 10 Lite Price Almost Same In NEW
        Who Is Best ?

        • Kaleem

          mate 10 lite is better than p10 lite.

        • Abid Ali

          Mate 10 Lite, have newest specs.

          • But Mate 10 Lite Offering 7.0 OS & Not Mentioned any News For Updating 8.0 OS @kaleem011:disqus

            • Abid Ali

              I’m sure they’ll be updated to 8.0. My P9 lite was updated to 7.0 after 4-5 months.

              • Mate 10 Lite didn’t confirmed EMUI Version :
                P10 Lite Honor 8 Lite Based on 5.0 & 5.1 & Mate 10 Series Based on 8.0
                But Not Sure For Mate 10 Lite EMUI Version I Think It’s 5.1

                • Abid Ali

                  5.0 = 7.0 and 5.1 = 7.1.

                  There will be EMUI 8.0 for Oreo 8.0 AFAIK

                  • Once MateLite get Andriod O VERSION Update then changed EMUI into 8 Version Right ?

    • Chan

      It’s made in India

  • Wasique

    As Xiaomi policies are. They will not survive in Pakistan. Look at their prices, why anybody will pay for 30000 for unpopular brand, no resale value, no good appearance. RIP.

    • Imran Shafi Malik

      MI Android One phone is great effort by xiaomi,but price in Pakistan is little bit high,it should be in the range of 25000

      • Wasique

        You can have many good choices in 30 Like Samsung, Huawei and so. Android One only for stock…. astonishing….

        • Nawaz Rajput

          Mate 10 Lite probably costs the same and it’s a better phone overall than this phone IMO.

  • Muhammad Arshad

    In india its Xiaomi 1A price is 15k only abt 24k PKR but in Pakistan they are selling at 30k how?

    • Due to Taxes : Marketing, Shop Commission Etc : Liek ViVo 7
      20 Ka MOBILE Public Ko 35 Main Chona Laaga Rahy hai


        Then how come Samsung is selling its Galaxy C7 in Pakistan with the same price-tag as in india?

        • faithful

          Samsung isn’t selling officially its black market.

    • Chan

      Because the phone is made in india, obviously, it will be cheaper in India

  • tahir aziz

    janab Mi A1 main fast charging nhi hy correct krlain


    The whole point of buying a Xiaomi is the affordable price tag.

    For just 2,000 Rupees more, you can get The Samsung Galaxy C7 with the same Snapdragon 625 SoC, 4 Gigs of RAM, larger 5.7″ “AMOLED” (Way superior than IPS in Xiaomi) Display with Full HD resolution, better 16MP rear camera with an f/1.9 aperture (Xiaomi has those gimmicky 12MP dual lenses at f/2.2 and f/2.6, worthless for photography enthusiasts), the front camera is ALSO f/1.9 which is impressive, the battery is also larger at 3,300mAh with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 on board (Not sure about Xiaomi) and stereo speakers.

    So… Why should anyone get a Xiaomi with almost non-existent after sales service, lack of accessories and ridiculous resale value when Samsung is selling a more capable phone with WAY better cameras and top notch display for just 2,000 Rupees more?

    And guess which one has great after sales service, resale value, widely available accessories and better User Interface? Samsung!

    Samsug’s Experience (Former Touchwiz) is the best forked version of Android, bar none. And I prefer it more than Stock Android!

    Xiaomi will soon die in Pakistan if they continue to over-price their products.

      • Wali Khan

        RIP Xiaomi

    • Wasique

      RIP Xiaomi.

      • Wasique

        Even Qmobile has better resale value than this.

    • faithful

      Bro c7 is on Marshmallow 6.0 c7 pro is on 7.0….where are stereo speakers ? in C7?

    • dfjk

      gsmarena says c7 was released in 2016 and 2017. Which one is available here with official warranty? Which variant did you use for your comparison?

  • Syed Ali

    Mate 10 Lite is much better option . xiaomi is loosing in Pakistan with High Pricy Tag

  • Muhammad Adeel

    Go for Moto Z play, it is already 31K in Pakistan. Pure android with no bloatware, only added useful gestures. Will upgrade to Oreo end of year. Superb battery life , easily lasting 2 days or more. Fast charging. Official Motorola support. I am using this phone for long time and still no lag, giving a flagship level performance.perfect built quality. Everything great.

    • Saad Tariq

      its price is varied from 36~41k on reputed online sites.

      • Muhammad Adeel

        I got mine from Homeshopping, the price was 36k. But then i went to Hyperstar in emporium Lahore one day and surprised to find the price of 32k. It will go down further in the future.
        Believe me, its the best phone with stock android. I got my latest security upgrade today. So it is updating itself continuously after couple of months. You cannot get that kind of battery life, user experience and quality on Xiaomi A1 for sure.


    MI Phones have Lithium Polymer batteries. it blasts on overcharging so don’t buy their handsets.

    • Chan

      Moto G4 plus was the worst. It became so hot that you could cook an egg on it.

      • BADAR


  • M H Khan

    Can’t believe mi A1 in 30k ? I’m really disappointed

    • Chan

      That’s quite cheap trust me considering the features it has. I bought it for 13,999 INR, and I’m really satisfied. Just in 2016, I bought Moto G4 plus for the same price and was really disappointed. Just imagine you’re paying that much for a 64GB phone, guaranteed anadroid update
