Xiaomi has reduced its Redmi 2 price by Rs.1000 today, Currently its selling for Rs.5999/- on Amazon and Flipkart. Redmi 2 was very popular mobile since its launch and it was selling like hot cake in India.
Why Xiomi is dropping prices one by one for all smartphones?
Well this is the marketing strategy adopted by these companies. When the phone gets launched curious customers buy them sooner or later but some people may be skeptical to buy initially, but when the price drops they consider it to buy right away as a deal. Or may be they are planning to launch new handset and before they launch they want to clear the inventory.
Earlier this week company has reduced its NOTE 4G price from Rs.9999/- to Rs.7999/- and Last month mi4 has seen huge price drop of Rs.5000 from its original price Rs.19999/- Currently its selling for Rs.14999/-
Xiomi may be looking for launch 2GB variant of Redmi 2 called as Redmi 2 Pro or may be planning to trimmed down version Redmi 2A.

A good news for smartphone buyers. Samsung is offering a tempting 15% Cash back offer on Galaxy series of smartphones. The Select Galaxy handsets can be bought on Easy Monthly Installment (EMI) using credit card.

Sadly, the 15% cash back offer is only available on Standard Chartered and ICICI Bank credit cards. If you don’t have these credit cards ask your friend to buy it for you (I bought a Galaxy Grand for my friend on my card). Also, keep in mind that cash back is only available on 12 month EMI option, If you choose 3 or 6 month EMI or 100% down payment you will not get the 15% cash back. Since there is no interest on finance money it’s even better to go for 12 month EMI to keep the monthly budget in control even after buying a top end smartphone.
The exclusive offer is valid from 10th April to 30th April 2013. You can buy the galaxy series without the offer too.
