Fast forward in August 2019, Xiaomi now has a lot of official and partner stores in the country.

However, not everyone is still buying on official Xiaomi stores and it could have some disadvantages.

Just yesterday, we received a report that there is this one unfortunate buyer who got scammed by a fake Xiaomi online store.

To prevent scams from happening again, we list the reasons and advantages of getting your Xiaomi device on an official Xiaomi store.

Reasons why you should buy Xiaomi at official stores

1. Authentic products - All items in official Xiaomi stores are original.
2. All phones will come with Global ROM, not China ROM - No need to install Global ROM on phones. Laptops are in English as well. Some items like the Mi True Wireless Earbuds Basic are in Chinese. Also, you get devices that are made for PH use. For example, official phone units are compatible with PH frequency bands.
3. You will get the official local warranty and after-sales support - Yes, official warranty and support, not just store warranty.
4. More affordable price versus grey sellers (usually) - Some grey sellers are selling phones higher than the official SRP. So, buy an official instead.
5. Different modes of payments - You can pay the item in cash or credit card. Some items are also available in different installment options.
6. Avoid scams - Buying from an official Xiaomi store whether online or offline will prevent you from getting scammed.

For online shoppers, make sure that you buy the Xiaomi item at Shopee Mall, LazMall, and Argomall.
