Don't you accept that if the item is travelling 5000 miles it may take a while? Bit harsh imo to say negative - perhaps I'm lucky, but never paid duty myself (largest purchase Mi M365 scooter)..

What's the camera and microphone like for recording video? Had the Note 4 and it was appalling.

Will parrot exactly what I've just written on a Redmi Note 4 deal...

Decent enough but CPU getting a bit old now and personally I probably wouldn't buy a new phone without an 18:9 screen these days.

Still hot for the price though!
16:9 and no headphone jack versus 16:9 and headphone jack.

Only one winner.

This does have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Playing music overType c headphone should technically sound better as it has the capability to use digital signal whereas 3.5mm is analog only this would depend on the audio hardware on the phone also there are some decent type c headphones around now at reasonable prices. I use xiaomi active noise cancelling type c dual driver and they are quite good and can be got for around £25-30
You are getting lightly confused. Speakers are analogue so you always need a DAC.
And yes, this does have a socket. But I simply do not see much importance in having 18:9.

yes misunderstood the 18:9 as you had 16:9 on both and may not be quite accurate with the audio signal but not far off here is a better comparison than i put it androidauthority.com/3-5…07/ of course maybe the down side is faster wear and tear on the usb type c socket
Interestingly this battery is rated for 81 hours. Not bad for a weedy, by todays standards, battery.

Hmm. Both are digital to analogue. Both contain a DAC. The only way USB would sound better is if the DAC/AMP is better. It's possible.

How is the scooter btw? How long have you had it and how often do you use it etc? Any bad points? Everytime they come up I have a major internal battle with myself to not buy one. They look amazing!

Scooter is mega! Got it in November, been waiting for the good weather but use it to go the pub and ride home! No issues whatsoever - just got a shim 3D printed by a mate to stop the handlebar wobble that's known... done about 100miles on it so far - use the ninebot app which works perfect for Speedo and cruise etc.. cannot recommend enough!!!! Two of us have them and real laugh to go out on

Personally i'd go for the xiaomi performance wise slightly better not a lot in it though except for price here is a side by side spec comparison kimovil.com/en/…2gb may help you to decide
Good price for that phone think it's cheapest I've seen.they all getting discounted as people jumping in the 18.9 bandwagon I'm undecided if it's better.i mean has a 18.9 5.7 screen more viewable screen than a 16.9 5.5?

Good price but the lack of NFC for tap to pay is a real deal breaker for me. Might not be an issue for anyone else but not having to go back home from the supermarket because I've left my wallet again is way underrated 😁

Wow you mean you pick up your phone before you would pick up your wallet when you go out beginning to understand what those experts mean now when they say smartphones are ruling our lives. Sorry buddy but its always wallet first for me and phone second

There are much better sellers both in UK and abroad than AliExpress who sell for similar price and you don't have to pay UK tax. You don't need to wait for three months for AliExpress delivery and lick their ass . This is a very popular phone so available every where. I have regretted everything I ever bought from AliExpress . If other sellers from China like Gearbest can post fast and avoid tax why can't AliExpress. Eglobal and Toby's deals send it in two weeks, with out any tax so big negative for AliExpress rubbish . It it was not Aliexpess , I would have voted hot.

I'm currently using BT earbuds when out as I found the cable very annoying and they're great in that respect but the downside is that they suffer from signal loss, causing the sound to break up/get choppy, which is very annoying. It's better if I have my phone in a breast pocket rather than my jeans but I don't always wear a jacket with a suitable pocket. It gets very bad in crowded areas, where I guess there's lots of people using BT and other signals that cause interference.

Yep, might as well wait for the A2. Hopefully, Xiaomi products will hit Three stores by then and can be bought with an UK warranty/all bands.

Thanks for the reply, that sounds awesome. I might have to hit you up for a shim if I finally bite the bullet and buy one.

I rest my case! lawl
Not only is the sound quality significantly worse compared to wired it's also about as reliable as a chocolate teapot!!
I think I'll put up with the mild anoyance of cable thanks!!

Why would you wait for the A2? It has nothing to do with this phone, particularly in terms of price, which is the most important aspect on this site. And please don’t encourage Sam, or he’ll never learn.

I’d personally go for the Honor 9 lite, as it is smaller yet has a larger screen. Most people seem to think the Honor camera is better too.
Picked up the 64Gb Mi A1 phone from eglobal for £123.50. Ordered 2.5 weeks ago and arrived yesterday. No taxes to pay. Very pleased. A lot of phone for the price.
Three network are about to start selling Xiaomi phones, other networks will follow. Had 2 of Redmond note 4 for 1 year now. Brilliant phones
