Xiaomi smartphone scam

Xiaomi criticised for UK smartphone £1 flash sale

"Flash sales" publicising a Chinese smartphone company's UK launch have sparked a backlash on social media.

Xiaomi advertised two of its new handsets for £1 each last week as part of a "crazy deals" promotion.

But it has emerged that each flash sale involved only two or three phones and Xiaomi had set its website to say: "Sold out," as soon as the sale opened.
