Confusing me with all your bargains! Don't know what I want now!
The note 5 is a better phone . Watch techtablst review on YouTube. He raves about it

Confusing me with all your bargains! Don't know what I want now!


Out of the note 5,5 plus and this, I'd have the Note 5.

It has the better processor, and its good looking (looks are subjective)

If you want pure android go for the A1, if you have a budget if under £105 go for the 5 plus, you really can't make a bad choice.
is there a smaller screen version in this? everything seems to be 5.5 or 5.9, i prefer 5" or smaller body size.

Note 5 is better but the mi A1 appeals to people that want pure android one experience and not miui.

I really like miui but I know the majority of people don't.

Apples and oranges when it comes to the mi A1 and the rest of the Xiaomi phones

It is the eternal problem of most Xiaomi fans.

Love the hardware, hate the software

On th plus side the rumoured mi A2 is based on the 6x which looks nice so

Does anyone own this? Do you think it's smoother experience than OnePlus 3?
No NFC. Real shame.

Where from? Ready to buy the note 5 4gb!
Amazing price. Once three start selling Xiaomi I fear that there will be a abargo to uk shipping. Its going to be a real shame. Price to UK will definitely go up as three will make a mint on this lovely brand

I had a OnePlus 3 and the MI A1 is just as quick as the OP3 in my opinion and the build quality is as good as the OP3 too it's virtually stock Android and the security updates are monthly which is better than other bigger brands.
Great phone

The only thing they really have is the Redmi 4x (5 inch), or Redmi 5 which is 5.7 but 18:9, so still compact. However, slightly lower end specs. I do have the Redmi 4x and it is better than the specs suggest.
Doesn't feel like any huge step down after switching from my S8 or Oneplus 5. It's my go to phone if I need the battery to last a long day.

Failing this, you can pick up a Huawei P10 or Samsung Galaxy S7 for under £200 on Ebay. These are compact phones with end end specs.
Honor 9 lite may be worth a look. This is another compact phone. Anything under 5.7 but 18:9 aspect ratio is a compact phone and much smaller than a 5.5 inch 16:9.

The idea of a compact phone is dead if these are considered compact.
Got the 64gb version. Great phone. Three will sell loads of these phones and the other networks will want to jump on that bandwagon once they realise that

It's not really about the screen size per se, more about the bezels. Choose one with smaller bezels (NOT the Mi A1!) and you can get a 5.5 inch screen in a body that probably is no larger than the average 5 inch screen phone. The Sharp Aquos S2 I have recently acquired, for example, is just such a phone. Has the same size screen as this A1 but housed in a much smaller body.

Mi A1 dimensions = 155.4 x 75.8 x 7.3 mm (6.12 x 2.98 x 0.29 in)

Aquos S2 dimensions = 141.8 x 72 x 7.9 mm (5.58 x 2.83 x 0.31 in)

Same boat mate, only options are xz1 compact or xz2 compact. Sony are the only company catering for that aspect of the market unless you want iphone
You can always install Google launcher to get the android look over miui. Works for me 😁

The SE is the best compact phone hands down.
Hate to say it, because I'm no apple fan, it just is, if you aren't in their ecosystem, then there isn't really a great alternative than what you and i above suggest, but these are expensive phones.

Yes, when standard flagships are reaching 6.2 inch, you're probably right!

Thanks I will have a look , what os is Redmi 4x running?

Both the Sony phones you mention have pretty average screen to body ratios, though.

4x is running their own Miui.
Mi5 is a good phone, but no global ROM and no band 20 support.

Not many decent compact phones in your price range, but Redmi 4x is under £100. You need to go for 3GB global ROM version and band 20 support.

I lost you when you said apple, apple are bad period. This is a much better prospect but you should be on the next iteration now note 5 if you prioritise battery life mi A2 if you want pure android experience

Can I get an estimate of the customs charges that might be incurred when ordering this? And, on average how long do you think before someone can use the phone in UK?

This is it. 4g compatible yes. Oreo. No, not yet. . Camera is not as good as flagship phone, but good for android budget handset.

Mrswitch have you seen the following on AliExpress?

- Xiaomi Mi8 - £363 after TCB
- OnePlus6 - £393 after TCB

So tempting right?

Of course always, I decided to cancel my mix 2s, was worried I may brick the thing, and am in the process of finding a cheaper phone to buy to test my flashing skills on, any suggestions?

I cancelled mine too! I saw the Mi8 and got super tempted by it, back to wondering which SD845 phone to buy...
There's phones that are like £50 delivered, why not try one of those, or buy something off eBay to try out?
A £400 phone may not be the best way to get started. There was a Xiaomi 240 hour wait to unlock the 2S also I believe!
I think AliExpress might be the best way to go with avoiding VAT also because they usually don't get picked up during delivery for me.
