I agree this is good value, but perhaps worth the £17 extra for the Mi A1 which has 1GB more RAM, a 1080p screen rather than 720p and, I think, a better camera?

Either way, factor in £12 or so for import charges.

Always factor in customs here here.

This is a much better looking handset (not that looks are everything) , £20 or so less than the a1, much of a muchness between the cameras. And would you really notice the extra 1gb?
I thought the A1 could use the google camera software, making the dual camera very impressive for the price? The rest is pretty similar though, the A1 is slightly faster but not much in it.

Fair points. I think both this and the A1 are excellent deals. Voted hot.

Hey a while back you found me a deal for the Google pixel 2 on monthly contract a while back. Which I'm unable to find. Would you possibly be able to find that deal or a similar one again thx

I think you'll find its a bit more than slightly faster the snap 625 soc is about 30% faster than snap 450. Hence Antutu scores of 78000 vs 58000 . Heat for the price though its generally £105 elsewhere
Have to give kudos to xiaomi store through Ali Express. I ordered an m1a1 phone that I ended up cancelling, and although they had shipped it, they just dealt with it. .Full refund, although it took a few weeks to travel the world, they were really communicative and processed everything smoothly. Well impressed.

The Xiaomi store is good for customer service, but shipping can be variable. Most of the phones I have ordered from them are shipped in a couple of days, but once it took them 3 weeks to push it out the door.
You cannot entirely trust AE tracking, I suspect it only displays the data the seller enters; using ChinaPosts own tracker, you can sometimes see the REAL shipping dates run from 24hrs to a week later than the info given by the AE tracker, or the AE tracker suddenly update and add the real shipping date days/weeks after it had originally said the item had shipped.


Shipping time is a complete lottery, I ordered something last week that has already arrived; but multiple orders placed on the 16th of April still arent here, and at least 1 was never shipped, so a refund had to be issued.

I read elsewhere that some entries in the tracking of a parcel may not be valid entries but a indicator you bought the product and shipping is actually untracked.
No joke ordered a phone 28/03 still waiting im in no rush.

Check the tracking and raise a query with the seller; the only times I have waited that long, the items never turned up. you have to put a claim in BEFORE the timer runs out, it can be difficult to get your money back if you wait longer.

Maybe there was a glitch when I had the issue; as it told me I was too late and should talk to the seller. I did eventually get through and get my refund.

The 720p display is the really big difference, especially since it's 5.7".
