    In earlier MIUI ROMs I wasn't able to use other devices charger and cable. Amp output wasn't enough, thus slow charging. also faced issues in USB MTP connection..
    As of now, no issues, but still don't want to face similar issue after purchasing particular cable.
    So posted here for some help..

    Then buy one with good comments/reviews,redmi is a popular brand so there should be some comments regarding cable working with redmi phones.

    For Amazon there's Keepa.com. You can set alerts, get Telegram or email notifications (never tried SMS alert), and even see price charts on the Amazon product page itself. Don't know anything for Flipkart though.

    I think @billubakra has some experience regrading these fake reviews spotting sites.

    DO NOT go by the reviews until and unless the products are by top the notch companies say Samsung, Philips etc.
    The product that you want to purchase in any case is going to be manufactured in China. Branded companies will sell it as per their brand value and the quality will be better, also good in terms of after sales support though for this cable only replacement will be there. The link of the one which you have posted is a Desi brand. It might be same in terms of quality like that of say Samsung but you do not know about the after sales support. Bottomline if your budget allows then go for the branded one's if not then go for that Desi one which atleast has a service centre near you or who replies to your email/phone call.

    P.S. IDK those cables look way overpriced and I don't know what's the craze with these braided one's. Search for Belkin cables.
    What these companies are doing nowadays is they include a gc or some cashback card offer in the product's box and mention that it will only be given if you send them a screenshot of the review that you have posted. Obviously if you rate less you won't get the benefits.
