Ok so I was on Ebay last night and found a bidding ending for a Brand New Redmi Note 3 Pro which was going for a very low price, ended up getting for £103 including delivery. It is coming from Spain so theres a advantage rather than waiting for it to come from China. To the point it is the 2gb ram version and this has made me think that it will bottleneck the phone in the future even though it has a really strong processor. Should I cancel the order and get the 3gb version for £130?? Thanks

Pro is 3GB, so either you made a mistake reading the details, or you have ordered a standard Note 3. Does it boast LTE band 20?

Pro and non Pro listings

My Note 3 Pro SE just arrived, and is as fast as a greased weasel*, 3GB/32GB and LTE band 20 all working fine - for £120

*Except on o2, where it is as fast as an arthritic snail.

@Gentle_Giant - The Redmi Note Pro 3 comes in both 2Gb/16Gb and 3Gb/32Gb versions. You made a mistake trusting GSMArena. ;)

Direct Xiaomi link should you not belive me.

I've been using a Note 3 Pro 2GB for ages now. I dumped the global ROM on it when I got it and its done OTA updates since. Nice, quick, and more importantly no issues at all here.

The Note 3 Pro 2Gb does NOT do LTE20. (it does 1/3/4/5/7/8/38/39/40/41)

Damn ffs, thought it had band 20, ohh well rip to me cause I'm on giffgaff which runs of o2. Have you tried any custom roms on it like Cm13/14? is the global rom fast and stable?

My bad, I was thinking Pro se, as that is what mine is, the se does Band 20, the older Pro doesnt (different chipset).

Sorry.

I used to try every ROM under the sun in my younger days, flashing then reflashing, and in the end you just realise theres no point. The MIUI7 global ROM does everything I need it to, its fast stable (not one android faulting module at all) and not much bloat either. Since owning it I have had maybe 10 updates directly from Xiaomi OTA so its always the most up to date it can be.

I do hope that the rom will be fine with apps like snapchat and some movie players, as my Cm13 Samsung galaxy S3 wouldn't let me due to the rom not being 'official' .

Get the global version 3GB - its worth the extra and will be brand new sealed, unlike others where they will open your Brand new phone and flash with software etc.
