Miui OS is pretty bad unfortunately, if this were on Android it'd be hot, no vote from me, sorry

The same B20 Global is a bit cheaper here. The bundle availability is a bit strange though. "Standard" is unavailable for either colour and the case/screen options are available for 1 colour but not the other.

Some available options:
Rose Gold + Tempered Film = £76.71
Gold + SiliconCase Film = £80.09
Gold + FlipCase Film = £81.78

MIUI is just an android skin. If you download the Google launcher or Nova Launcher from the play store it's pretty close to stock android. I've done this on my redmi 3s and it's great!

Mixed views. Looks like good value though.

If this isn't running Android, can you please tell me what it runs?

It is basically Android, only their version of it. Likewise, OnePlus phones have OxygenOS, also based on Android.

Different but not bad. It's just a skin that has lots of good functions and lots of YouTube videos that show you what it can do. Some won't want to mess with that so install nova launcher as that will give you a stock experience. I myself like it although it takes a few days to get used to. Heat from me

It's not the way it looks, it just crashes far too much for my liking.

Why would it remind you of that time? Completely different story. Galaxy phones aren't windows in any way at all, whereas these are a mask of android and therefore do not have the same features, functionality or support. MIUI is very buggy and although they're working hard to fix it, it'll never be as stable as full Android.
#18
ok I see what u mean it's not same as the stock andriod rom for the likes used by samsung or LG or Google but that's the thing with andriod it doesn't just have to be for 1 phone like the silly apple iphones software.
#19
some custom rom are alot better and less buggy than stock roms I'm sure u can get a custom rom for this phone aswell as andriod is quite a open source software.
#20
Miui is in my opinion way better than stock Android, unless you don't use call recording and utilise the inbuilt firewall features.
The launcher isn't to everyone's tastes but underneath miui is excellent.
And saying it's not android, I mean really?

Samsung don't use stock Android and the only LG phones to come with stock Android are the LG Nexus phones. All of the brands that use Android have their own custom UI which won't be the same as Google devices using stock Android. Samsung phones use their Touchwiz UI. There's a lot of UI comparison articles to show the differences from stock Android.

Is the replacement warranty compulsory, why is this listed as £87 when it's actually more? Am I missing a code or something?

Just seen this on another post but for the next couple of hours you can get 20% cashback on Quidco for AliExpress purchases

Set shipping country on product page as US, then add to cart and in checkout change shipping to UK

Would this be good for skype and will it work in other countries?

Skype will work fine, no reason why it wouldn't work abroad but you would need to check what frequencies are used in whichever country.

What do you mean by stock... AOSP? With AOSP you can install Xposed Framework (as long as you're not on 7.x) and add whatever you want. I think that's much better personally. MIUI is OK though.
#28
I have xposed working fine on my xiaomi eu rom, yes not all modules for xposed work but a fair number of modules bring miui type features to android so I don't need them.

That wasn't the point :)

It's about time someone who ordered it received it and played with it. It'd be interesting to know how they feel about it. What about import taxes. Would I have to pay them?

This does Not have band 20 (although it has official global firmware)

I think the seller changed the product page at some point since the deal was posted and they seem to no longer sell the B20 version. My link in comment #4 from 'Xiaomi Online Store' also changed to a non B20 version, even though they still appear to sell it in 2 other listings here and here.
#33
In truth I'm somewhat alarmed by that. If they ran out of the B20 version, it would make sense to make a new listing. On the other hand two listings for the same product don't make sense.
