Again a great price, choose the standard option in grey, with free shipping for this price.

I thought this was a really cracking price, it may have been posted already, but to get these kinds of spec on a UK handset you'd be paying over £100 for most.

how is this thread so hot.why would you send a penny to these chinese …how is this thread so hot.why would you send a penny to these chinese phone selling websites.phones by snail mail no support no warranty.even at 65.07p its far to risky unless you have it to throw away.my vote will not affect this post but im always cold with these companies


Items usually turn up in just over two weeks. I've bought 5+ Xiaomi phones (for friends, family and myself) and each one has been perfect. Show me better phones for the money that are sold by the big companies over here, you wont be able to. Xiaomi phones are amazing value for money and VERY well made. People are being taken for mugs in the UK when buying top of the range phones. The ONLY benefit they have over these Xiaomi phones is the quality of the camera, otherwise there is literally no need to spend £500+ on a mobile phone. These phones are super slick in use with zero lag, and have great battery life, expandable storage, etc. The only thing a lot of them don't have is NFC. If you're not bothered about NFC and are not after a great camera there's really no point in looking at any other brand than Xiaomi. Money is not thrown away when buying these phones....

That's your opinion and you're entitled to it.
You got anymore amazon deals for us?
My experience buying Xiaomi phones from China has been brilliant, started with the mi2 way back in 2013, haven't looked back. Use a mi5 now, i doubt I'll every buy a contract from the high street everagain.

Don't tease me with likes. I want insider knowledge.
Seems like a decent phone for less than the price of a screen replacement for a Samsung edge.

Poster above makes some good points. Some bad punctuation, sure, but good points hidden amongst it.

You might be waiting weeks for it to arrive, you might have to pay import duty and you might get no support. But, if you’ve got the money to spend and willing to take the risk then like lots of other people on here you can get what seems like a comparable phone to the honor deal.

Oh and Ali Express don't give the seller your money until you've stated you've received the item and that it works...

I'm honoured.
AND Xiaomi provide very regular OS updates for their phones...with both bug fixes and improvements unlike many other manufacturers.

AND i've bought many other items from Ali Express which have ALL turned up with zero issues. Before posting try researching more before making wild accusations. Also, you'll find Xiaomi are a HIGHLY respected manufacturer of many many items.

I agree, 3GB is the minimum I would recommend but my Dad has one of these and it is very nippy, no lag at all but he doesn't do much multitasking on it.

You really are a lovely person.
I'm not claiming that you get warranty anywhere in my post, but it's the risk you take! I've took the risk, but that's my choice, like it or not.

Bad punctuation because I swiped it straight off the website, and there was too much to edit!

But I appreciate your comments.

Do you know if there is a reasonably priced Xiaomi phone that does have NFC? I've had a quick look, but can't see an obvious one. Thanks.

Yes, the 'global version' comes with band 20 as well as the others required.
Don't go for ones that say 'global Rom'.
