Bargain. I'd probably wait to see what the Redmi Note 5 Pro is priced at though.

Same here. Will be interesting, will they go sub-Mi A1 price or higher? The SD636 SOC looks a good one as well.

PS Heat added. Great price.

I have been using note 4 for a year. It has been very nice experience just like my previous Samsung which was 4 times expensive than this. Highly recommend this.
Love my Note 4 but I don't think this is much of an upgrade. Mi Note 3 or Mi Mix 2 next for me.

Heat for a great price.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is the supposed RN4 successor. Just have to wait until we see how much it's going to cost....
This is insanely cheap for a phone with the snapdragon 625 in it.

Problem it just won't get the support the Redmi Note 4 has. Especially now that it's been made redundant by the Redmi Note 5 Pro
Whats the camera like on this?

Those were the 2 I was looking at as well. Went for the Mi Note 3 in the end, as I couldn't justify the price jump to the Mix 2.

Looking for a big, cheap phone with a massive battery and NFC.
This seems to to almost all of those - do any of these cheap Chinese phones have NFC?

The redmi note 5 pro price at the launch was 4gb/64gb 13999 rupees which is about £157.50 and the 6gb/64gb 16999 rupees which is about £191.20 .Then of course you are going to have to add the 3rd party ( gearbest ) exporter mark up so i would imagine it would be around £175 and £210 initially then drop to around the launch price goes on sale from the 22nd Feb in India
*** It states that the seller has no feedback ****
This is not a bad price if you don't need to worry about warranty.
The 4/64gb version is about £180 with 2 yr warranty in Czech shops, I'll wait for them to stock the 6\64gb Note Pro. Always nice to do a bit of window shopping in Praha.

Very good, I like it a lot. Was a bit concerned because it 'only' has the SD660, but I've had no sluggishness or slowdown. Good screen, excellent build quality and everything is nice and slick. Got the 128GB version, which was factory sealed, and there was about 108GB available out of the box. Chinese rom was installed, but I unlocked the bootloader and installed the Global rom via fastboot, and then re-locked the bootloader. Dual camera is good, which I've used to get some good bokeh effects. Only slight annoyance is that the facial unlock feature, which worked well, isn't in the global rom. I think however, that it's in the next update.

The first batch go on sale on the 22nd in India. The redmi note 5 is this phone (redmi 5 plus ) rebadged the redmi note 5 pro is a new phone
Best price so far for the gold version of this as far as i'm aware, still waiting for my blue one.
Great deal, pulled the trigger on this to replace my Xiaomi RN3 that's served me well. Cheers OP +heat
There is quite a big difference in the price of the 32gb and 64gb version, think this 32gb is better value.
If you look at the Mi A1 there is only about £10 between the 32 and 64gb versions.

In fact there's shedloads on feedback on this seller, if you go to:

fantacy.aliexpress.com/sto…ky1

7,909 pages of feedback, no less.

I bought my Redmi 4X from this seller without incident.

MI note 3 is the phone I want, excellent camera reviews, better than the p9, how do you find it?

Also, on a side note, I forgot to mention that Android Pay works flawlessly on my Global ROM.[Image] Sample photo taken on Mi Note 3, Feb 2018.Edit. The original is clearer than this. This one must be quite heavily compressed.


I'm not massively fussed about effects like bokeh I just looked for phones with very good image quality, good in low and ois for stable videos and note 3 is up there with iPhone 7plus and other top end.

It didn't last long, not there now..

I've seen it quite often where there is a lower price shown, but when you try and select it, it doesn't exist. Did you manage to grab it that price? The blue with the flip for £115 is still a good price.
Edited by: "winchman" 15th Feb
Yes, managed to order it at that price.

Got a message from seller that they will ship it after Chinese New Year, so possibly all orders will be delayed.

Head bitten off...I stand corrected... I didnt think they were going to release this phone with it. ... Do you think they will release the pro with it?
Just bought the black one for £114.05. Opened a new account and the voucher for 10usd was there in the voucher section.

It's the global version so it will have play store
They've put the home, back and overview buttons on the screen, instead of below it. So in fact the visible area of screen is practically same as note 3 and 4. I missed that and it p****d me off when I got it! grrr. It's a con IMO. On the plus side it does come with a nice clear case cover and a screen protector already applied by Xiaomi.
stung for customs?
