So this is a beast of a phone for this price. 4GB of RAM is insane!

Anyways I though this was a good price for this phone considering the previous deals on this phone have been over 150£.

Just Keep in mind that the 4G will only work on three and EE and apparently the battery is just okay.

Don't forget import charges.

Don't forget import charges.


Yea you are usually okay if you pick the regular delivery and not DHL or express.

Also they have an EU warehouse you can order from for £155.77 with no import charge and much faster delivery

waiting for one of these to come gearbest.com/cel…tml seems a better deal and about £60 cheaper.
disappointed to read that the camera is supposed to be pretty awful
and battery life & screen apparently aren't great either

still, good spec for the money.

the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 has a lot of fans
can be had for a smidge over 100, which looks like good value considering all the positive reviews from websites and real world users alike :-)
What's so difficult about supporting all 4G bands?

Make no bones about it
I bought a Redmi2 phone from Gearbest recently. It's ok but you should know that it comes with huge amounts of intrusive bloatware. I have read that this phone is the same.

You will need to root the phone and uninstall the spyware apps, which is not straightforward, as it's not at all clear what programs contain what.
Phone is good for the price but the problem is its from China.
If anything goes wrong then you have to ship it back...
Plus gearbest customer service is awful....ive had to raise a dispute through paypal to get my money back
I would warn against buying from them, but thats just my experience
Asus offer the bootloader unlocking for free but voids the warranty.
Would this be an upgrade over my Galaxy Note 3? TIA
Similar price to the Moto 4G, how does it compare?
Does this work with uk 4g? Thanks
I wish this was 5", find 5.5" too big, loads of 5" about but all use crappy Mediatek chips, I want something QUALCOMM based.

you can buy anything from within the EU and it will never have customs charges, so no, no taxes

​try the mi4c 808 processor dual sim 5'' screen 3gb ram 32 GB memory sure its about £190 and you can get the international miui rom from xiaomis website, I believe doing that would remove the spyware
So this zenfone will have spy ware then will it??

To be honest I am not sure why my Note 3 works fine, I think I am a bit bored with it and I am a gadget nut LOL

All goods outside of EU are imported into EU after full whack of taxes and customs excise and EU levies paid. Therefore there is no need to charge you again in the EU. after you would have paid full whack in the EU price.
I bought this in China a little cheaper 6 months ago. A great buy replacing a Nexus 4 (with appalling battery life)., it supports 2 sims, so you are carrying two phones. Camera not as bad as folk say, have a look on forums to see. The battery easily lasts two days. It also charges really quickly.
Was looking at it, but going to stick with my note 3 with zerolemon 10000mah battery.
Just got it rooted now waiting for note 5 rom.... Should do for another couple of years....
