As tinted has already mentioned you can purchase this cheaper at Banggood.
Visit website here.
Add the phone to your basket and apply the following discount code: KIMOVILX829 which brings the phone down to: $186.29
Remember to go through either Quidco or Topcashback for 6%+ cashback.
Very good. Just ensure it's the Snapdragon and not the decacore model

Great deal, I ordered one yesterday having read a few reviews. Main concern would be the fingerprint sensor but tbh I've got used to it not working on my current phone already. I got mine from banggood, there's currently a promotion and I paid £156 with 7% tcb, will post the link when I'm home if anyone's interested
Good choice. You will not regret

Thanks, Clarity CC reports £149.68 and TCB tracked at £9.94, my deal is looking a bit cold. ;)

Thanks, showing as just over £152 for me with the code.
The main thing putting me off now is not being able to use banking/credit card apps with a custom rom. I know, seems a minor hindrance, but once you get used to logging in with only a passcode - rather than all that cardreader nonsense - you really don't want to go back!
I know from experience both Barclays N Halifax work in this smartphone

There is a dfs tool that offers hope to unlock band 20https://forum.xda-developers.com/le-max-2/how-to/guide-unlock-bands-leeco-le-max-2-fix-t3439154
I'm going to give it a shot when mine arrives. 4g coverage with three in Edinburgh is pretty woeful for me anyway.
I hope to be wrong though I gather no one has confirmed gaining band 20 yet. I get 4G at home in Hamilton on 3 occasionally though daughters redmi note 3 (with Band 20) sees 3 4G more often (I should check coverage here though 3G speed is not a limiting issue for me.

I don't understand these chinese manufacturers. Whats the point in making a flagship phone with 4g bands missing.
My guess is they can make do with cheaper circuitry which makes for significant savings on a larger batch.

It's aimed firstly at the Asian market so only supports their frequencies. Occasionally they do manufacture phones with band 20 capability - although I've no idea what drives this? Maybe once the Asian market has been saturated with this model they look for other strong markets to target.


​Other Asian markets use B20. Taiwan, for instance, use it, which is what the Redmi Note 3 SE was aimed at.

the piano black edition is defo 4GB Ram and 64GB ROM. I was tempted with this, only reviews I've found have been positive barring the battery life, how slippery the handset is and the killer for me was the GPS not keeping a signal (seems to be common with this processor). The mediatek CPU isn't the highest powered either so not a 'gaming' phone,, but will play most things OK.


​ gps fix being rubbish has been a problem on previous doogees and elephones for me too.

Got this. The screen is fine - had an LG G3 before and you have to look hard to see the difference imo. I'd only pay the £300+ between this and a high end phone if I watched lots of movies and wanted top quality photos or played games. Great to have lots of memory, load on loads of apps without 'memory full' messages from a 16gb phone. Otherwise works well and looks great. Can't get fingerprint scanner to work though! I think well worth this money for the performance overall.
And what's battery life like please?


Battery life been very good so far. Get a full day easily out of quite heavy use. At least as good, probably better than my old LG G3.
robertfrancis1975
what's the camera like?

Usually absolutely rubbish on Doogee phones, very poor lenses coupled with terrible firmware.

I have Doogee y-pro something or other for about 1.5 years. The three problems I have are sound quality (really poor), pictures are just okay and it is all plastic body which has all corners broken. :(

So, what is the sound like (e.g. when receiving a call), camera and the body/screen of it?
Thanks.

Bought this from gearbeast and had un-molested rom. Have bought a few from them and non have had dodgy roms/ malware.
Utter BS.
It's clear from the description and MIUI version number that it's not the official ROM.
​can confirm


News that Xiaomi are locking bootloaders is a double edged sword. On one hand it means less dodgy ROMs installed by 3rd party vendors but on the other hand it means flashing a 3rd party ROM becomes a more difficult task.

​sorry I am curious how it is you know that this is a dodgy or fake rom?

MIUI V8.0.5.0.0 is a dodgy Chinese customised developer version. Not the official ROM. Lots of information online about this including user feedback from people with that fake 3P version. Official ROM has 4 digits eg. 8.X.X.X, not 5.

Problem with buying the Redmis off Gearbest and Geekbuying is that you've no idea what ROM comes with the phone. Alot of them have dodgy versions of the Chinese developer ROM with lots of boat/ad/malware.
It's clear from the description that this phone comes with the "MIUI V8.0.5.0.0 SMARTPHONE FIRMWARE 212541 161228"
That's just some seriously dodgy, fake / customised / developer version of the ROM. Definitely not the official ROM. Person who started this thread should be explaining this properly in the description.
Unless you're prepared to flash the ROM from the get go, 99% of buyers would be better off buying a Redmi phone from Ali Express (eg. HK Goldway) with the official Global International ROM, and ideally the SE version with B20 support.
Hot for the phone generally and price.
COLD for this particular deal/seller.
​sorry I am curious how it is you know that this is a dodgy or fake rom?

This is a "China Only" phone and so it does not have things like Google Play. These have to be installed by rooting (so forget banking apps) and installing by modifying the ROM slightly. You will also not get updates. HOWEVER, as they are rooted, it is straightforward to install a new ROM (eg, the EU version if one exists for this phone).

I bought my daughter a Mi4C about a year ago (another "China Only") which had the same limitations. I have now got her a 3S, which is an international version and this gets updates and can do banking (plus band 20). The old Mi4C was easily updated to CyanogenMod 13 in 2 steps as it was rooted.

Does your tracking work? I ordered mine more than two weeks ago and the tracking they gave me for singapore post doesn't work. Emails get ignored. I ordered other stuffs from other vendors on same day (ebay sellers / Ali express etc) and they've all been tracked no problem and received...

Its £86 but also a $2 OFF coupon so £84.50 odd i think?http://i.imgur.com/9jjUyYF.jpg

The one you showing is not a grey/black model but if you can use the coupon the grey comes down to around £87.60.
It really is amazing what you can get for 100 quid or less in the mobile phone market.
A lot of peeps will say not got this and not got that but at the end of the day it is only £88 quid for a reasonable spec phone.

Just got one from Chinese seller on eBay, £12.98. After xmas delivery but it's for me so don't mind. Worth a punt at those prices
​That looks like the China version.
​Is there a huge difference between them?
​The actual hardware, I believe, is the same, but the firmware in the China version is buggy and doesn't work quite as well. Also, it uses servers located in China, where as the Global version I posted c uses servers outside China, which, apparently work better and improve the user experience. Plus, and possibly less importantly, the global version is CE marked, and has English instructions.

Cheers for this. Does anyone know then why geekbuying has the international edition for £100 more than the global version?
​Haha! I hadn't noticed to be honest, but it doesn't make much sense. I could be wrong, obviously, so if anyone knows for sure, I'd like to know.
No worries, cheers for your help. I'm guessing the global version works fine in the UK and there is no reason to spend an extra £100 for apparently the same thing
​The global version is what I'm typing this on. Works just fine and is blazing fast.
£182.90 now anywhere cheaper?

... I think the Redmi 4 Prime/Pro will be a fair bit more than £120 when it becomes available. I think £104 for a Redmi 3S is pretty good.
The Redmi 4 Pro is available HERE on pre-order for £132, supposedly shipping in 11 days time. Someone mentioned it may not be worth getting it until an international ROM is available, though.
I'll wait for the international version with B20 :D

Global version with 3GB Ram band 20 available here for £110
Hi if you put in a 128gb microsd, does it use fat32 format or use exfat for better support?

geekbuying? no thanks! ordered once from them (never again), the phone was faulty and it arrived after 3 weeks! stay away!

dont know if youre serious or not but yes the phone does take 3 weeks and ive not had any problems with mine .. and it is of course a risk when buying from china. mine was unopened, sealed with thin plastic covering over the box.

as for the phone itself does everything i need, its fast, screen is clear enough and calls are good. im not sure what else anyone needs from this phone .. it doesnt have bloatware for the international/global version , it updated itself when connected to the internet and the operating system is not fussy and easy to use.. i did get the 3 / 32 version

Grey 2/16GB is £5 more than Gold both are same price for 3/32GB
For those that are thinking of the Grey 2/16GB model and don't want to spend the £5 over the gold, Gearbest have it for £112.29

anyone have u any idea how i transfer via usb music files onto this phone external micro sd, this is using windows 10 laptop. thanks, couldnt see anything obvious to activate via phone for usb transfer and nothin showing on laptop when connected via usb!!!
Something like that happened to me on MIUI but it was after I changed the USB connection to 'charge only' and then lost the ability to mount USB storage. Installing "MIUI USB settings" from Play store fixed it. Try that to see if it works for you.
I sorted my music file transfer problem working fine now. Another problem, I received my new plusnet Sim today calls and texts working fine but Data not working I got APN settings from plusnet basically there same as EE network but still no data, plus net said there is known connection issues for my postcode, plus net going to send me another Sim! Anyone know if the ID mobile 4g using three network would be any better with this redemi phone? Thanks
A few recent Plusnet forum threads stating the same problem on different phones:https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/NO-DATA-no-access-to-APN-settings-on-iphone/td-p/1400224https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/No-data-connection/m-p/1401689https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/No-Data-Android/m-p/1401858https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/Re-No-data-connection/m-p/1399078#M1432
The last thread link stated their problem ended up being due to a faulty sim so if your replacement sim doesn't fix it, then the problem is elsewhere.
As for whether ID mobile 4G is better, depends on your area. Order Three's free 200MB sim to see what your coverage is like. I reckon it should be fine though. I get 4G Three perfectly fine even on a non B20 Redmi phone.
Cheers dreadzone, appreciated

The same colour is now 10% more expensive (£132.66) in their black friday pricing, how shameless is that.
jeffjack
pretty nice, downsides no NFC, micro usb (no usb C)


​dont really see those as downsides tbh?
Could you not just buy it now and then flash the Global ROM when it becomes available? Or is more required (e.g., hardware differences) to allow all Global features like Band 20 etc.?
I would recommend NOT purchasing until Global ROM is available.
Look forward to the 4 Prime reviews, very much like Xiaomi smart phones esp. 5" version
When Global ROM is available this may tick all the boxes - but not yet.

You'll need to flash this to the xiaomi.eu rom anyway unless you want a buggy experience without proper google integration. You'd be mad to not reflash it anyway as most resellers ship them with buggy vendor roms which at best contain adverts and at worse contain malware which will steal all your data.
Hi, why would you suggest xiaomi.eu instead of the official http://en.miui.com/download.html ?
Because this phone only has a Chinese rom out, no global, the Chinese roms have no google apps at all and aren't fully translated to English. You can add google play/google services from the Chinese store but they don't integrate or work very well. Even with a proper Global rom many prefer Xiaomi.eu as it's translated better, more up to date and is has properly had the Chinese services stripped.

I have a samsung galaxy note 4 and I'm wanting something similar quality for emails social media apps etc can this rival it (sorry I know absolutely nothing about any Chinese phones but sick of being ripped off for Apple or samsung)

This particular phone won't rival it. This is a Xiaomi entry level budget phone whilst Galaxy Note line is Samsung flagship level. It may be fine for emails and social media apps but I would suggest looking into the Redmi Note line instead. They'd be more comparable. The Redmi Note 3 Pro is a popular choice since it has a B20 international version which means it supports all UK networks. 5.5" is a common size for lots of Chinese phones. If you type '5.5' in Hukd search, there'll be lots of choice with varying prices and specs. If you wanted to buy in UK, there are options like Huawei and their Honor line. If you wanted something more high end, Oneplus 3. In terms of cost, you won't find something at this price point which rivals a Galaxy Note 4. Some phones in the £150 range may rival it in terms of screen size and processor power but other things like camera and build would be of lower quality. If emails and social media is your main usage then I reckon a lot of sub £200 phones nowadays would be sufficient.


​thanks for your explanation

No, this won't be anywhere near as good, but excellent for the money as a temporary solution perhaps before you decide on one that competes with or betters the Galaxy Note 4 (GN4).

Spec differences here: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=6434&idPhone2=8420

One main downside of this compared to your GN4 will be the average camera.

Can I ask what is wrong with your GN4 - has it developed a fault or become slow or something else?


​it's really not working as it should the camera has been knackered since I got it and now it crashes once it gets down to 5% battery power. I had gn3 before this and can't really see any difference in them.
thanks for your explanation

There are so many phones with all UK bands. Why buy phone made only to work in China.

Sigh...
