Hi @rogparki . I have bought from gearbest five times and I'm not given any incentive for stating that they have never let me down. I am "cautious" when ordering, I suppose I have some experience. I have not spent more than £175 on a phone either. It's good to have your view posted as it helps others exercise caution too. All the best.

Xiaomi phones are fantastic - nothing available from UK sellers with anywhere near that bang for your buck.

If you want to waste more money and/or get a worse phone, stay "safe" with UK sellers... These Chinese deals are the real value for money is.

Quite right didn't notice that have changed to splashproof thanks
Great phone. Not sure you can get a snapdragon 835 phone any cheaper. Lack of band 20 is the only thing holding me back. Very tempted to go with Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 if it drops below £300 again.

Interested to know why you think the Mi Mix 2 is worth £50/£60 more than this?

Bigger screen/better looks/worse camera?

I recommend today's Bangood lightning deal: Elephone U Pro. It's £293 (either colour) with a 635 not 835 CPU but 6GB and 128 not 4 and 64 as per this one, for RAM and ROM. Both are NFC too btw, that's highly unusual and I myself cannot do without Google Pay now. It has a 5.99" AMOLED screen. Lastly, it does have Band 20. Both are exceptional value. 🔥 Tomorrow it'll rise back to £321 and still is on Gearbest et al.

The elephone u pro has a snapdragon 660 not 635 the 835 is much much faster than either also you can get the 6gb / 128gb Mi6 for about £305. Antutu scores Elephone U pro 103000 and the Mi6 205000

I understand what you are saying it is a risk buying from China but you should research the sites first like on trust pilot etc geekbuying are renowned for bad customer service i have never used them but have used aliexpress gearbest and banggood many times and perhaps fortunately never had a problem now Gearbest have a rep who is a member on HUKD i cant remember her name now Lisa or Lucy something like that anyway she has sorted members problems in the past. And Banggood have a forum where you can post your problem and a rep will get back to you normally within 24 hours and help sort it probably not a lot of people on her know of the forum but like i said earlier do your research sorry HUKD wont let me post the banggood link

That's all I want to bring about , transparency on the possible risks of buying from Chinese sellers . I have suggested many times to HUKD that a "Health Warning " be put on when such a deal is posted , but sadly they are not interested .

I have found many members are not even aware that these sites are Chinese ,let alone possible issues with Import duties ,lack of warranty etc . Unfortunately we now have many members ,incentivised by these sellers , stating on these posts that they have bought loads of items ,never paid any Import duties , customer service fantastic etc ,etc - no wonder our less savvy members can be fooled .

I believe we should all help fellow members on here - not take incentives from companies (wherever they are based ) to give a false impression of the "Deal" .

We all know these "paid for reviews " are rife on Amazon for instance , a similar thing is all to obviously starting on here sadly

Welcome to HUKD , you could well be right , provided they don't go wrong - that's all I have ever said - exercise caution .

I'm sure you would also wish HUKD members to know there are risks involved in buying a "Grey Import " so why belittle that risk ?
Great phone. My wife's been using hers since release and loves it. The camera is excellent. She is on EE and hasn't had any reception/B20 issues

You greatly over-exaggerate how common these occurrences are, always scaremongering and calling for draconian measures like bans against these vendors... It's not just informing people of risks when it's always so negative/extreme and you constantly allege that people having positive experiences are being paid off/incensivised to say as such...

I have ordered over 100 products on my Aliexpress account, around 40 on GearBest and many more on others such as banggood, geekbuying, rosegal, lightinthebox etc... Every single one has arrived within the estimated shipping times, intact and matching the description/expectations.

Constantly being so negative about these vendors when the risk is so small seems really odd... Like hovering around telling people to be careful of the risks every time they cross a road, handle a knife, boil a kettle etc...

My point exactly - if you understand the risks , and can afford them ,fair enough - I've never claimed any different .

I freely admit to knowing virtually squat about mobile phones - if it works I wouldn't know if it was good , buggy or whatever and I suggest many members have a similar lack of competence in that field .

Now I am a golfer . Taylormade are made in China (as are most major brands these days ) and club members boast of the bargains they have got by buying from Chinese sellers . That is until they hit my genuine (admittedly overpriced ) £350 M4 driver , Their Chinese M4s don't sound the same , travel 10% -20 % less distance but look and feel exactly the same .

Just saying- I can tell with a golf club or golf ball , but wouldn't have a clue if a shiny new phone was the real deal or not , and I suspect many members wouldn't either . So if its just for show (as with golf clubs ) it may be fine - but is it the real deal

What you are talking about with the golf clubs is a Chinese copy of a M4 These xiaomi phones are not copies they are excellent phones in their own right and xiaomi are fast becoming a major player in the mobile world and are quickly moving into the west with stores already open in Spain, Poland and Greece and are about to open in Italy and are officially entering the USA by the end of the year.

Hahahaha that's so funny, my pc is 8 years old
I won't be replacing it
A phone is a pc and if you get a cheap Xiaomi
Probably less money and can be used at home or out and about. Get some clue.

There are risks associated with china I know

But I limit 150 that's all I risk
And I prefer Ali sellers like fantacy and Xiaomi
Mi store . Five days mine came and it was bombproof when it arrived. These sellers know what they doing. Like others have said if you take the risk you can still get 120 plus for a RN4 on eBay because others will prefer to buy risk free from a UK seller so it's win win once you have the phone I don't doubt this will be same on higher level.
Still only a HD screen, which I had on a budget phone nearly 3 year ago. For a flagship I would want QHD at least.

That is correct for aliexpress no section 75 protection for the reason stated in article and the same applies to buying on amazon you got section 75 protection if you are buying from amazon itself but if another seller on amazon then no. Also if you buy off gearbest or banggood i believe you do have section 75 protection as there is no third party involvement.

The part I quoted was questioning whether the product was the "real deal", and I directly replied to that statement, so maybe you need to brush up on your reading comprehension or buy new glasses?

Also the seller in this deal has 98.7% feedback rating here;
tonke-digital.aliexpress.com/sto…Rj5

The issue with warranty/returns is obvious when you ship things from China, do you assume everyone is blind or stupid? Anyone with a few brain cells doesn't need you ramming that point down their throat on every single posting of a Chinese deal.

Xiaomi phones suffer from Mic issues.
I've tried *#*#6484#*#*" and test the microphone...it passed but the phone keeps dropping out whilst on call. I really like the phone but it's been a nightmare still not resolved.

Found this on MIUI forum

Change NFC settings to SIM Wallet or HCE. Test both as update to Oreo resets this settings. NFC works on that ROM.
