Do not buy from this supplier, any problems with faulty products and they're a nightmare to deal with!

Does the 3g ram version not come with 2.2ghz CPU? My note 2 prime did.

Just to add, my note 2 is the best phone I've had by 25miles (Tyson Fury esq).

Interesting to read the review having already got the Note 2. Seems the basic processor is the same but some things are better in the note 3 and others in the note 2.

Note 3 pros
Metal Back (premium feel)
3GB ROM
Fingerprint reader


Note 2 pros
Ability to replace battery
Ability to add memory via microSD

The Note 2 is definitely available with google apps on but the review suggests the note 3 doesn't come with them - perhaps the OP can confirm? The note 2 is well supported on the EU MIUI forums but I would suspect the note 3 will still be building up momentum at this time.

Interesting stuff. I'll not be chopping in my note 2 but that's a good price for the handset.

Have a visit to the xiaomi.eu forums. They do a weekly ROM which meets your needs, and can be downloaded and installed using the update app on your handset.

No 800 4g UK Ltd band. Otherwise good price

That is what put me off getting one of these, as I checked on here first: http://www.willmyphonework.net/.

I have gone for the Huawei p8 lite which does have the 800mHz band

However it is a cracking price as banggood are selling them at £181-£191.

That sounds like a flaky GPS to me.

Note 2 prime gets thumbs up here too, replaceable battery and sd

Best of all, " xiaomi eu" do a Rom which is updated weekly with no Chinese bloat at all

What about VAT/customs etc.?

And what about the seller is it trustworthy?

Should I pay by credit card to increase security?

Sorry but I am noob with buying something from far East

I paid with PayPal. In the end PayPal reimbursed me, not the supplier?

I would like to buy Xiaomi phones, but either no warranty or fake mobiles :(
However I have found recently supplier from Ebay who sells Redmi Note 3 + Sqare Trade warranty 2 years for 157 GBP + 36 GBP for the warranty, is it good option?

It's a pain. I'm not computer savvy tbh, so got my local phone blokey (technical term) to do it. Apparently it's simple, there was a chap on here that linked me all relevant stuff I'll try pointing you in right direction when I find it.

When I did a run down of the note 2 I included the links to the forums. For the note 2, it's the 'Hermes' ROM. I've no idea what the codename for the note 3 is though. Linky

Redmi note 2 until they do a better version, still massively competitive now.

Only let down is no SD slot, it's a shame Xiaomi decided to copy Apple in that regard (they modelled their whole business after Apple).

I was wondering how the Helio X10 with Power VR G6200 compares to the Snapdragon 810 with Adreno 430? Other than not bursting into flames :)

if you go through TBC the price is $261 so no point

I have not had much luck with Gearbest, ordered this very phone on Dec 13th.

As of today the order is still 'processing' and they told me by email that it would be another 2 weeks before they send it out. Cancelled the order and will wait till it shows up on Amazon.

Hot for the phone, but COLD for the seller.
#26
Have to say its a pretty great wee phone.

Had mines from the start of december. Nice weight to it, build is pretty good as well, the top bits are plastic tho not metal just the centre back is metal.

Plays every game i have threw at it with ease, the camera is not to bad, not iPhone ask but not bad, with enough light it can take some pretty amazing shots.

Battery life is bloody amazing. Lasts me 2 full days of moderate use, answering calls and texts, a little instagram and spotify with bluetooth pretty much always on. Last time i had this sort of stopping power it was a nokia lol

Got mines from seller on eBay, payed the dhl delivery and ended up paying £185 and it came with a glass screen protector and a silicon case. So seeing the phone at this price.

Worth the wait. I was just impatient. Don't regret it

Unless you buy from the EU warehouse, I'd definitely expect 5weeks for delivery. Mine took around that mark. But to save £££s over a similar/lesser spec'd high branded set, it was well worth the wait.

I have bought 4 items from Banggood and not had any problems with them, only when it gets into this country. I bought a phone for my wife from Banggood and it took 3 days to get from China to the UK, then a further 37 working days to get to me. It came into the UK to a place called HWDC, hwdc langley butterworth, and there it stayed for over a month! When I eventually go it it by Royal Mail, there were no extra charges at all, as Banggood had said the value was only 23.71USD.
So that gives you an indication of how good they are.

Don't do it! Good phone and nice price, but it's Gearbest. Even from the European centre you will rue the day you buy from them if the device is faulty. Their support and service isn't bad, it is non existent.

32GB ROM? ROM = Read Only Memory. Pretty useless then.

Avoid GearBest like the plague. They are a terrible and dodgy company, just need to sift through the hundreds of fake reviews online or really experience their dark side to realise that. Just as well they don't know who I am otherwise were they to see my comments they'd ban me from their site lol not that I want to use it anyway.

Xiaomi though they're a much better company. Shame you have to deal with parasites like gear best to get a good price on their phones.

like normal with Chinese phones good spec but I'll wait to see build quality before voting. I've lost to much money to Chinese phones being poorly built

Excellent build quality mate... Never seen such good quality with Chinese proper ones but this ones quality is good... Heard they sold millions of units
