P9 lite money maybe?!
Good guess!
That would be too much. Huawei phones have steadily increased in price as their build quality and popularity increased. Xiaomi is a budget brand, especially The Redmi range. If they make the price similar to the Huawei they will lose their advantage. If I had to choose between a Huawei P9 Lite and the Redmi range, if the price was the same, I would definately go for the P9 Lite rather. Fantastic phone that one.

Looking at the Mi5 for R7999 then these would definitely go around R6K. The Redmi Note 2 comes up close to both the Redmi Note 3 and P9 Lite with specs but for 1/3rd of the price.

Haha bloody joke go home MIA you're drunk! R3799 for the Note 3? I can import it for R2870.60 + say R500 for customs and import charges. So it comes to R3370.6. It'll be the 32gb 3gb version aswell.

EDIT: Redmi Note 3 R 3,799.00
Redmi 3 R 3,299.00

Problem is it is next to impossible to find cases/covers for these models. Most shops only have stock for the Helios X10 model, which is shorter/narrower than the International Snapdragon version.
