Use code 10BGESMA1 to bring the price down. This price is for the Black model with UK charger , other colours possibly cheaper

Is this pre order?🤔
Edited by: "imy4uk" 14th Oct

I've had one for just under a week now and it's a decent phone for the price. Got my one from aliexpress.

No , it's in stock.
The Gold and Rose Gold colours are cheaper at £157.94!

Ordered the Redmi note 4 a month ago with same spec which still hasnt been shipped out. This looks nicer at £30 more. What are people's thoughts on cancelling that and getting this?

I was looking at getting a Note 4 too, but will go for this one I think - finally ditching my m$ phone, and the 2 years of direct Google support/updates for this model is enough to tempt me.

Redmi note 4 has a bigger battery 4100 vs 3080 , is that important to you?
The Mi A1 is better than RN4 that it has stock android ( better memory management , faster file transfer , software updates)

You can install a different rom on RN4 and have latest updates for next 2-3 years but if you dont want to do that then Mi A1 would be a better choice)

How's the camera compared to the flagships of the last couple of years? And the battery? I'm really torn between this and something 4x more expensive.

There are mixed opinions regarding the camera. The camera is able to take some great pictures in good light conditions which could be comparable to previous flagship cameras. However this camera does not have OIS and is quite poor in low light. Hoping that they will release updated to address some camera issues.

Dont forget the custom charges of 12 pounds etc.

It's not the best but does the job. Not good in low light and no stabilisation for videos but for the price it you can't ask for more. I just wanted a decent phone for browsing, youtube, twitter, twitch, the occasional game, twitch and a photo from time to time. This does all that and it's stock android. I couldn't ask for more and to spend more for that would be crazy. I'll recommend xiaomi to other people in the future

I'm still waiting for my black one it was ordered on the 11th Sept 17 only just been shipped on 11th Oct 17.

Both my phones gone and I've been recommended this phone. Decisions decisions

Just ordered, thanks OP.
Possible 6% Quidco.

Will this have malware?
Seem to be reading a lot of this with Chinese phones...
Is it scaremongering?

Just read you can download google camera app HDR+ port. This apparently improves picture quality

I quite fancy one of these for some travel in a fortnight. Anywhere I can order from that'd give fairly quick delivery? That's an excellent price, but sod's law it'd arrive in two and a half weeks...

Ordered 2 of these from TomTop on the 26th of September, black one shipped on the 11th the Gold one is still processing, sent them 6/7 emails asking for an update, without reply.
Hope I have more luck with this one.

my redmi note 4. 5.5inch took 18 days to arrive after being shipped....Its a very nice phone n spec for the price and works fluidly....but this looks very nice as well and Android as well...And would arrive quicker maybe. Cant understand why ur redmi is not shipped as it is a stock item.

Yes, they ship orders via air freight. Obviously the air freight container needs to filled up, before it can ship. So it's generally 20-30 days.

My main concern would be q/c of the device. Lot's of reports of static on the headphone socket on Reddit threads.

You could use dhl shipping but you will need to pay customs/vat charges and dhls handling charges on top of the price

Ordered, thanks, wife's LG G3 gave up last week. What's the average time to delivery in people experience?

Thanks. That pushes the price above eglobalcentral Not sure how reliable their promise of 6-8 working days delivery is, though...

Anyone thinks the back looks like an iPhone?

abk18912 h, 57 m ago

Dont forget the custom charges of 12 pounds etc.

In the past 18 months I must have ordered about 30 different items from China, all shapes and sizes and ranging in price up to £250 - a Xiaomi phone. I've never once been charged by customs. Has anyone? - using the free delivery option. Getting charged by a courier, DHL etc. is fairly common, I appreciate that.

Heat for the price OP. Think I'm going to try one of these in the New Year

It's similar to the Redmi Note 4 that am using now it's the newer version. I ordered this mi a model last month for my dad. Delivery on this model has been slow due to a lack of stock at launch and people buying preorders.

The new one will get android updates longer and much faster. People mention that this new model has a smaller battery than the older model. But the newer model this one has fast charge. That plus the improved camera I would now order this new version even though still love my note 4. Great value.

You have to root the phone for that to work.

Wow

I must of got lucky with the one I ordered from an aliexpress seller. Ordered 28th Sept and arrived 10th Oct so just under 2 weeks and no duty/tax issues with the free delivery via royal mail once in the UK.

but this phone shouldn't be seen as the successor to the Redmi Note 4, that will be the Redmi note 5 coming soon. This is a standalone phone made in conjunction with Googleand as such is the first Xiaomi phone with stock Android.

This phone should come factory sealed so no 'special' ROM loaded by the seller which can contain malware. Xiaomi are one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers, I'd be be very surprised if they were loading malware into their phones.

Is this better than the samsung s6 edge i have?

Which rim you recommend ?

Coupon expired already

Will never buy this brand again. £170 for a phone that lasted 14 months then just stopped working. Tried everything to get it working even hard flashing and no luck.

I recently came across this company, based in the UK apparently, with China warehouses. It's more expensive but promises faster delivery, a guarantee of no taxes or import duty bills, a returns policy and some kind of warranty. I haven't used the site so can't says if it lives up to its words.

No. It'll be slower on benchmarks and have a worse camera for a start. However depending on how you use your phone, it might be a good enough replacement when the s6 eventually breaks.
