    Of course they can price it low, even with a flagship processor. It’s an in house soc. Also I sampled the 3i in one of their stores, terrible UI. Store clerk had to assist me in navigating, also tons of bloatware. In the end, with Xiaomi and Huawei offering us great products and prices, the consumer wins.
