for the tight ppl who wont buy iphone


For the clever people who don't waste money.

It's amusing watching the iPhone owners eye up my Redmi 3. They are all jealous of the battery life. Yet they'll have no choice but to take whatever Apple gives them with the iPhone 7.

And then they look at the price. Hahahahaha! Sorry, I can't help feeling smug. But hey, if you have more money than sense... good for you (why are you on hotukdeals?!) :). No hard feelings.

Is the Redmi 3 waterproof? Who cares! At £100 I'll be grabbing the soon to be released Redmi 4. And to think some Apple die hards spend £500 (more?) every year... wow!

Just wondering how well the phone does on the daily? I'm looking to get a bavk up phone and since this has a 720 screen and a large battery I'm guessing it lasts well?

Bit confused by the "fake store" comment at the bottom of the description?

Is there a link to trusted store?

Also, would this work with 4g on O2?

Thanks

It should work fine on O2 4G. Supplier says it has 800Ghz band used by O2 and Vodafone in UK.

It's a random seller on Aliexpress, there are some good sellers on there but this one claims to be authorised by Xiaomi when it isn't. Personally I'd never trust a store that lies to me before I've even used them.

Top-One is generally seen as the best seller of Xiaomi stuff on Aliexpress, Hong Kong Goldway are also supposed to be good as is https://www.ibuygou.com/ (who offer a 2 year EU warranty).

i came from the Nexus 5 too.. we use a 5 inch screen, can barely tell the difference if there is any. only thing us that this phone has hardware soft buttons, meaning you get more screen space

is this purchase likely to incur customs charges? is there a specific mailing method that needs to be used to avoid it?

You'll want a redmi note 4. That'll be 5.5 and is one of the hot recommendations on here. I'd recommend searching for it on here to look at versions (i think there is a pro / prime version with more memory and ram) and prices it's been before.

Hang on.... I meant redmi note 3.the 4 is the new version, which is still something to look into, but you won't get the price you're looking at I think.

Can anyone comment on the GPS accuracy on this model? I have a Cubot X9 which is fine in many respects but the GPS is really not fit for purpose.

My gf has the standard redmi 3. I'll be honest and say it's a bit hap hazard GPS wise, both in England and in Australia where she is working.

It's not horrific, but defo worse than say my x play. I'm not sure I'd trust it for map navigation in a car for example.

Go with the iPhone 7, it was designed in California. Plus, this is not water resistant. :p
And the battery on this is too high.

This is NOT an Xiaomi authorised store, personally I'd not buy from somewhere that lies before you've even paid a penny.

I suspect the OP may be linked to the seller as they keep deleting that info from the opening post and I can't see why they would unless they benefit from the sales.

Geekbuying, as I pointed out on the other thread, but they are more expensive (though reliable).

Bear in mind this is not the 3GB 32 GB version. Still a good price but for an extra £20 the 32gb is worth it in my opinion. 16gb is not enough for many.

I saw this but it shows some models support B20 and others not, the 16GB Grey & Gold stocked in Spain support it, but the Silver one stocked in Spain doesn't. Somewhat confusing :)

Was it in a sealed box or flashed beforehand?

DCX do you have one of these? considering one for my son are they any good or would i be better sticking to a branded phone? as long as it plays pokemon go and the phone is stable thats all he wants.

Good question, was sealed with "CY" tape, and had english as available language. Also didn't require any more messing with the rom, totally happy with it for about 2 months now (coming from note3, and note1 beforehand) have taken pictures about the box and the phone how did it arrived to me if you are interested :)

I don't have one, sorry. I'll be getting a Redmi 4 though once the Snapdragon version is released (should be soon). I've done a load of reading on the 3 & 3S though as I've been close to ordering multiple times (then as I'm about to do it another Redmi 4 leak happens). Xiaomi can't really be compared to other Chinese rubbish as they are a big brand, they sold over 70mil phones last year which is more than LG & Sony. If you get one you'll need to flash either the official global rom (this may come with it) or my preference is the xiaomi.eu rom. If the phone comes with a vendor/seller rom it'll be buggy, never get updates and possibly virus ridden. Loads of guides about. Top-One seem like a good aliexpress seller as well.
