Always check it will work on your network ;

Great phone,well worth the money IMO, this is best Chinese import I've had.
4 months on after buying, still as fast and responsive as day 1.
Dual SIM's work fine, and also has a 3rd slot for a Micro SD card, so no need to share like some other phones.
Well mine finally came and I've been stung for £13, duty is only £5, it's the £8 fee from Royal Mail that really stings. Feels a lot like a license to print money for them.

EDIT: Although for £75 quid this is still a top notch phone, just be better at £62!

Royal mail usually drops the import fee if you complain. You have to pay the tax part though
I bought for £72.13 about a month ago and got charged £4 duty and £8 fee from Royal Mail (£84.13 in total), so this price is good. Like another comment above, it's the best phone I've bought from them.

Complain how? You'd be amazed how much work id put in for £8 but also the sense of satisfaction from wearing someone down.
There is a template online of a legal letter that says you do not accept their handling/admin fee, as you have not agreed to this, but of course are willing to pay the customs tax. Just fill it in, and email off. They wrote straight back to me and said no problem
Can you provide a link please?
It looks like most options are out of stock, the only combo available comes up at about £75
Has anyone received theirs? Just wondering if it's sluggish. Looking at it for my parents, similar specs to my huawei vibe but much cheaper than the £120 I paid 2 years ago.

The Huawei runs on Android 5.1 but I'm worried the Xiaomi won't run its OS well.

Got the rose gold one from below for my parent. Received today, it's not sluggish at all and seems very sufficient for an average user.
