Note 4 has global rom for over 6 months. I have two, absolutely the best value for money phones you can get.

Is this the Official Global version or have they flashed a global rom? It makes no mention, that I can see, of the available LTE bands.
Just so you know. Global ROM is delayed by at least a month for redmi 5 so all Chinese sellers will probably update you on this AFTER you order it. I ordered mine almost a month ago. Still waiting...

I had noticed that there is no Global rom on the official download page.

Can't you cancel?
17 days battery life?

17 days battery life?


That'll be standby.
Still, is that reasonable?

If anyone who owns one could give a brief review of the phone and the battery life, that would be much appreciated.

I've cancelled from there before. Just told them I ordered the wrong one and I had to check the correct model.

This phone was a promising meme until they omitted USB type-C.

I'd rather wait and see if they make a Redmi note 5 with USB type-C and a snapdragon 630.

It's apparently planned to have 635 but still micro USB. Guess that's a xiaomi thing still...
Is this much off a upgrade over a Huawei p8 lite 2017, i like the phone but storage is very limited. I like that the redmi 5 has 64 gig storage and a larger screen.

No mention of whether this has Band 20. I'm going to wait until I can be certain I'll get one with Band 20 and a factory-installed global ROM.
I've looked on their website and it says if i order via DHL tracking it guarantees no custom duty. Can someone who ordered from them this way previously confirm this please ? thankyou.
Not sure why they kept micro-USB on this, it's not a 'Xiaomi thing' as I have their Mi Mix 2 and it has USB-C.
The specs for this (except for the larger screen are very similar to the Redmi Note 4) which I also have and for the price is an absolute cracker of an phone.

That service costs about £20. Basically, you're paying the fees upfront.

Not in this case. I have ordered from this seller before. The phone comes to Europe and then does a little tour of places and changes tracking numbers. I think they are claiming that they are "warranty repairs" and therefore do not need to be charged customs fees. Whatever, you are kept informed at all stages and you don't pay anything extra.

I don't think this is the proper global version. There was another posted yesterday, I think, which is on pre sale. That one boasts band 20 support. That's the one I'd go for to be honest.

I have p8 lite 2017 too. It's a great phone, the only thing that will move me to another phone is battery life and camera
Thanks OP. I ordered the 4/64gb global version in gold. £132 delivered. Black was available for £145 but i thought i'd save a few bob.

That was for the 3GB RAM, and 32GB Internal Storage version of the Xiaomi.

This is for a 4GB RAM, and 64GB Internal Storage version of the Xiaomi.

Same beast, but not the same animal ... lol.

Yer my mate wouldn't take the risk of China and went for the p8 lite and regrets it. I have 13 gig of music so the p8 lite was a no no as I need 2 Sims used for my O2 321 and my Argos 500mb fiver ee sim.
I just had my Redmi Note 4 delivered last week and it's a pretty impressive device for the cost - I think I will hold onto that until a Redmi Note 5 comes out, with USB-C and a better processor, the only thing that is arguably better on the 5 Plus is the screen and I watched and read reviews that state the quality of the screen on the Redmi Note 4 is better than this.

The only negative I can find with the Note 4 is that the GPS is very inaccurate, unresponsive and unreliable. Although reports online state that the Xiaomi.EU ROM resolves this, but due to the way Xiaomi do things, unlocking your bootloader and installing a new ROM can take a little while.

Is your RN4 equipped with the snapdragon or Mediatek SOC? Reason I ask is MTK socs have historically been poor at GPS whereas SD socs have been far superior. Certainly my wife's RN4 with SD625 is a stellar GPS performer...

The Redmi 5 Plus is the Note 5, really. That's what it's called in India, apparently.

Edit: having said that, read this (it's all very cloak and dagger, isn't it?)
