I'm getting £107.16 for the Gold one...

I'm looking for a dual sim phone around this price and getting confused with all the different models

Just install malware bytes and kaspersky. If there is anything untoward, they will find it.

Taxes make these much less desirable. you end up paying the same as you'd pay for a Moto G4, LG G3 or a second hand Nexus 5X.

Just doesn't seem worth it.

From what I understand, if you go for standard postage then the chances of being hit for taxes etc is v.v.low. It's when you go for DHL etc that you get hit.

I guess my issue with that is that in 30-40 days I'll have seen a better deal pop up and I'll have buyers remorse :D

True.

Then again, it's pretty amazing what can be bought these days for ~£100. The one thing counting against this phone for me is the lack of fast charging. The Redmi 3 Pro does have fast charging though....

Will the phone work on the UK 4g network? Band 20 I think. I'm tempted by this or the ulefone Vienna.

So many of these very good speced Chinese phones, I'm just not sure which one to go for. Tempted to go for the ulefone Vienna but Xiaomi is a better known brand.

Might go for this Xiaomi one if it supports band 20 4g UK network.

I have the Ulefone Paris. It's almost good...but, not. Slow to charge, and the Marshmallow update has introduced a wifi connectivity bug. Oh, and the build quality isn't great (white hot spot on the screen).

I rarely hear bad things about Xiaomi - and they seem to provide constant software updates. Cameras seem decent too from what I have seen thus far.

Redmi Pro 3 is looking like the one for me right now....unless anyone has a reason for me to avoid it?

Just realised that it is running Android 5.1 (so no support for using the SD card as combined onboard storage). Shame, as it is otherwise looks like a great phone.

Doesn't seem to be much of an upgrade. I was expecting to see NFC, a better camera and an upgraded Snapdragon processor...but they seem to have gone down the Mediatek route.

Did you click the link? It's a Snapdragon 625 so quite a bit better and made on 14nm which should give a decent battery boost (Qualcomm claim the chipset uses 35% lesspower), X9 LTE, a 1080P screen, and hopefully an improved camera. Looks good to me.
#21
This is a good deal but the redmi 3 and redmi 3 note seems to come in a wide variety of specs. The price difference between them all isn't great. Personally I would have thought the Redmi Note 4 is worth hanging out for.

I've always had iPhones and have been a big fan but for the iPhone 7 to cost £600 is nuts. I've been so impressed with my wife's Google Nexus 5x I'm tempted to give one of these Redmis a go.

The Redmi Note 4 is mediatek, it's anything but better and possibly more powerful. When a Redmi Note 4 Pro with Qualcomm comes out, then it will be better/faster. But Mediatek? Nah no chance, buggy and barely even get official updates nevermind 3rd party updates.

I think there is no xiaomi redmi note 4 pro.
Xiaomi just launched redmi note 4 couple weeks ago and xiaomi redmi pro with dual camera both just released.
There is no vids on youtube with rn4pro
And only several links in web who sell rn4 pro.but i think its a scam and they sell rn4 with fake pro stats 8)

I had been looking at the Redmi Note 4 (Xiaomi's naming convention is pretty confusing!). That phone has a Mediatek Helio X20 processor...
Will be interested to see the reviews for the Redmi 4. It certainly ticks the boxes so far.

I bought a Redmi 3 Pro from this same seller 3 weeks ago. My phone was just delivered yesterday and it is indeed the global version phone and all in English for the boxset, menus and the phone itself. It's a marvellous phone and the fingerprint sensor works like a charm.

I may agree it might not be "authorized store" but they do sell legit xiaomi products. Unlike banggood or gearbest where they sell the Chinese version.

There are a lot of security concerns with Chinese smartphones. I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. Especially with banking apps.

It is generally recommended that you flash the installed ROM with a clean install of MIUI. MIUI is an open community driven version of Android, and one of the most popular Android ROMs around. If there was baked in hidden spyware, the Internet would be all over it by now..

It's easy to do and takes a few minutes. (well I say easy, you have to be competent enough to follow a few steps. So that rules out some of you. This isn't a device for Apple owners.).

Sure, maybe the Chinese government bakes in some spyware into the hardware, I'm fairly confident the geeks will notice this and it's kinda Tin Foil Hat territory to me. The moment it was discovered China's export market would fall off a cliff.

For what it's worth, I've had mine for 6 months and my bank account hasn't been raided. ymmv ;-)

Just doesn't seem worth it.


I would argue you still get more bang for buck this way. I'm not sure I'd want a second hand phone with a worn out unchangeable battery. But each to their own.

No Western phones come close in spec for this price but the real winner in the battery.

I can't big up the battery enough. I went from charging my old phone (a Nexus actually!!) twice a day to now charging it every three days. I used to go out and have to switch my phone off because I wanted to save power in case I really needed it. Now I can go out watch a film on the train, take photos, upload them, etc, etc. And still have more than half my battery life left.

I could never go back.

Consumers should be demanding batteries of this size as standard, Xiamoi managed to fit one in...

I have to say it again. The battery life is stunning and I would pay £200 quid for that. (I paid £130 inc tax for my R3).

Well I'm an iPhone owner (and MacBook Pro and iPad) and I just bought one. <3

Agree with you about security though. I don't think you need to flash it as there are malware scanners you can install to give you peace of mind.

Are you aware how buggy/insecure android has proven? Here's the latest problem: http://www.zdnet.com/article/quadrooter-security-flaws-affect-over-900-million-android-phones/

I have the Redmi 3S and it's great for everyday use. I'd never touch banking on a phone with a bargepole. A patched Win 10 installation or Linux is your best bet for internet banking.

Yep, they find it, but can't remove it because it's baked into the O/S. At least that's how it is with the Lenovo K5 note.
