Xiaomi has been experiencing its best times in recent years. There are constant reports on the Internet of the Chinese giant's rapid progress, which also results in greater self-confidence and the associated rise in prices.
Xiaomi is no longer a manufacturer of flagship killers. This privilege was left by the Chinese giant to its sub-brands Redmi and POCO, who took up this scepter. Xiaomi, meanwhile, has visited the hall of real flagships.
Xiaomi raises prices
As awareness of this manufacturer spreads at a rocket pace, Xiaomi is slowly but surely beginning to advise the remaining premium brands. This was also reflected in the massive increase in the price of their smartphones.
As you can see in the comparison above, Xiaomi increased its flagship prices by significant ones compared to 2016 100,1%. By comparison, the Xiaomi Mi 5 cost € 256 during the launch, while last year's Xiaomi Mi 10 cost around € 512 on the domestic market.
This increase in prices was very difficult for fans of flagship killers to accept. The rapid rise in prices has resulted in a surge of criticism against the Chinese giant. However, other leading Chinese producers did not avoid rising prices.
Popular manufacturer Huawei has raised flagship prices by approximately 47,1% in five years. The OPPO brand brought an increase in prices of less than 43% and Meizu 48%. The comparison also includes the well-known American giant - Apple.
The iPhone 7, introduced in 2016, cost € 799 after the introduction. The cheapest of the iPhone 12 series with the Mini attribute starts at a price of € 839, which results in an increase of approximately 2,1%. The prices of Apple smartphones have been attacked by high values from the beginning, so the difference in the prices of individual models is not large either
