Xiaomi has been steeling user data from their phones and just now one security firm reported that there is a pre-installed malware found in Xiaomi Mi4 device. Also even its running on Android Kitkat 4.4.4, its still vulnerable to all the possible scans the security firm conducted.
So I advice to all Indians is that not to purchase these phones.

hello, Its not difficult to find it … just google it and u can read news on any website.. Also before launching xiaomi phones in India, Intelligence Bureau also stated the same that xiaomi phones are steeling users data to Chinese servers and leaking that. But after the meeting of IB guys and xiaomi tech team it was settled. But why to risk ? Go for good brands like Sony, HTC, Samsung or better Indian OEM. Following is the link where u can read the news
