Ordered 1 for 2 reasons, firstly to try miui and see if I like it, if so I'll get a higher specced Xiaomi phone, also to try and get my partner off her "dumb" phone.
I'm sure I won't be disappointed on both points.

I asked the same question in the above thread before taking a chance. Both responses implied they weren't charged. However there is no guarantee.

Even if you disliked MIUI, most Xiaomi devices (with Snapdragon CPUs) have excellent custom ROM support. I'm running a nice Oreo ROM on my Redmi Note 4 that is pretty much just clean stock Android.

MIUI is quite nice and you'd probably like it, but it's not the only option :).
What's different between this and the redmi 5?

Recommended method to install the custom rom on redmi note 4?
Bought one of these for the wife and she's happy in the most with it. She likes the miui skin for its simplicity. Battery life is good and camera above average at this price. Only down side is the Bluetooth volume which is very low with no way to improve it. Seems to be a common issue across the board on xiaomi handsets judging by the various forums about it.

Thanks for that. Seems like the £20 extra might be worth it for the 5...

There are tons of tutorials around, I'll link a few that may be useful but there are YouTube videos showing the process as well.

1. Unlock bootloader (may need to wait 48-72hrs here for Xiaomi to approve it, but they will)

2. Flash TWRP (custom recovery)

3. Boot into TWRP, wipe the device and install your custom ROM of choice and ARM64 Gapps package (Google apps).

4. Done! Boot into the new ROM and set up the phone.

I use the FireHound ROM, there are loads of other choices in the XDA forum;

Ordered a couple of phones from gearbest in the past and using standard but insured delivery I have as yet not been hit with any customs charges. They seem to put the value of the package at $20.

Yes the redmi 5 has a 12Mpx rear and 5Mpx selfie and supports slow motion video @ 120.0fps
and the remi 5A has a 13Mpx rear and 5Mpx selfie and does not support slow motion video
also redmi 5 has a slightly bigger battery 3300 mAh and redmi 5A 3000 mAh

full comparison here kimovil.com/en/…bal
Does this definitely have the 2 SIM slots AND sd slot, ie not hybrid SIM?
I have the redmi 4a and been very pleased with it. It just updated to Android Nougat
Could anybody tell me if this will support Pokémon go?
Bare in mind if the priority shipping is flagged up then it will incur approximately an extra £20 (£8 customs and £12 to Royal Mail) but it will also delay the phone by 2 weeks which sort of makes the priority shipping useless.

Great phone for the price BTW, my missus has this and it's almost as good as my phone costing twice as much.

Do you know if the Dual Sim will support 2 x '3' network sims (ie. are both minimum 3G)?

It's my missus' phone. Don't know if you can use 2 of the same network sims but can't see why not. You can only use one sim for one feature ie. Only one sim will be used for internet while the other used for calls and SMS. It's easy to switch though, I've 2 sims in my own phone and was using my 200MB free 4G data data from 3. It ran out earlier so I switched to my 3G data from O2. I use my O2 for calls and texts but can't get 4G very well on the network.

It should easily run Pokeman Go but my missus won't download to try for you, sorry!
Remember to add the dispatch time on to the shipping time . It shows it may not dispatch until May 6th ( which usually means they are waiting for stock) , then shipping could take 12 days .
So you could still be looking at a month before you receive it ( longer if customs stop it ).
Can you extend memory ( external) on this?

Can you extend memory ( external) on this?


Yes the sim card tray has a second slot for either a microSD card OR as second sim card.
So,provided you don't need 2 sim cards you can extend the memory.

If you need to use 2 sim cards and a micro SD card then look at the larger 5.5" screen Note 5A - this has dual sim tray and a separate micro SD tray . There are very good deals on this phone on Gearbest at the moment - fulfilled from their EU warehouses ( so quick delivery and no customs fees ). I bought the Rose Gold colour for £71.94 delivered from France ( gw-6 warehouse )
I want this phone but @ checkout it's in dollars will it convert to pounds when it shows up on my statement?

Can't get Gearbest to register me, keeps saying it's sending an email to confirm, but email either fails to arrive (and yes, I've checked the spam bucket), or says "Page not found" when I click it. Is there a secret to this?
