Great deal, heat added. My house resembles a Xiaomi shop, I suspect more and more people's homes will also in the years to come.

Just a bit of info for anyone buying a redmi note 5 global version to get face ID unlock to work you need to change your region setting choose this region: " Russia, India, Indonesia, Hongkong, Taiwan" and face id unlock works
Does anyone know what fast charge it uses ?

That's good then at least my s7 edge charger will do then.
Bought the ali express one last week for a few pence less for my daughter it's on it's way to Langley at the moment so fingers crossed won't be too long.

Yes no problem all UK 4g covered
Great. Much difference between 32gb and 64gb other than the obvious?
Only difference is extra 1gb of ram and the storage of course but you can use micro sd card to increse that
Word of warning the gold looks pink inside a clear case.... Fantastic phone, camera occasionally throws a strop but I reckon firmware will fix it. Also Miracast doesn't work for all my devices, again hopeful of firmware.
I bought mine (gold, 3GB/32GB) on June 4th when it was £122 on AliExpress. A few days after I ordered, I got an email from Gearbest offering the same phone at the e.mail only price of £118. Grrrr!

For anyone else who jumped at Mrswitch's deal, have you got beyond the 'Despatched to overseas (GB)' stage when you track your order in Singapore Post?

The screen is the only bit of the phone that I'm not thrilled about. It's great on 100% brightness...but below that, I find my old Note 3 Pro to have a better/clearer image.

The rest of the phone is better in every way.
I can't see the AI camera function anywhere in the description of the phone... I bought mine (the 4gb/64GB) from the same store and the description includes the new AI camera function

Same 'dispatch to overseas (country code:GB)'.

I have no idea what the four digit dispatch number is. I can't see that you can enter it anywhere to get more info on where the parcel is.

This is my first time ordering from China. I was hoping that someone who had gone through this process before might say what happens as the next steps. It may well be that the 'dispatched to overseas' message is the last one we get before the postman arrives at the door!

It can take up to a month for goods to arrive from China. The only downside in my view. I'm bin the same boat.

does your tracking number start with RB and end with SG
BUCKUM215 m ago

does your tracking number start with RB and end with SG


Yes. The tracking code starts with RB & ends in SG. This is the code I've entered in the Singapore Post tracking utility. This says the phone was sent to the UK on June 11th which was great news (I'd read a lot of horror stories about folks ordering non-existent stock!).

However since then, it's all gone quiet. I'm sort of thinking the plane(s) it's been sent on must have arrived by now so I was expecting a new message. Maybe I'm just being impatient and I just need to chill.

I also was given a four digit despatch number which when you get given when you track the item on Singapore Post. I'm not sure what to do, if anything, with this code.

Thanks for all the help you and others have provided on the various Redmi Note 5 threads. It was you that convinced me to pounce!!

You will get a email from aliexpress when it arrives in the UK telling you it has arrived and also tracking will say the same normally it takes 4 days from leaving origin country to arriving at destination country. It then has to clear customs my last order took 8 days to clear customs then it showed up on Royal mail tracking and you will then either get a out for delivery on royal mail tracking or you will get a card through the post telling you there is a custom charge to pay you can either pay the charge online and they deliver the phone 2 days later or you can take the card with proof of identity to the named sorting office and pay there and they give you the phone

At least we know who will get it earlier. Or if ours are on the same package.

Just one more thing my last 2 orders got caught for customs and the royal mail tracking said out for delivery and then followed with attempted delivery but no one in and that a re delivery card was left now i was in all day and no attempt or card left so phoned them to try to find out where they had tried to deliver they said they would look into it.of course i was afraid it had gone to the wrong address. Then the following morning the custom charge card came in post so went and picked it up from sorting office.The same thing happened with the second one so it appears the attempted delivery tracking notice was used because they don't have a holding at sorting office for custom charge or something like that. Have now complained to royal mail about that as it causes unnecessary stress.

This or the Note 5 Plus (which I ordered)? Just checking if I made a mistake...
Is there any way of viewing videos on this in full screen other than zooming in and losing a bit of the video? Or is it because the screen is narrow?

Can only view the same size as my redmi note 4 which is 5.5"

There is no redmi note 5 plus do you mean the redmi 5 plus if so the redmi 5 plus has a snapdragon 625 processor not a 636 and single rear camera
There are 2 versions of the redmi note 5 a China one no band 20 support and this global version with band 20 support
Then there is a Indian version called redmi note 5 pro this only has 1 UK 4g band supported and different camera set up
There is also a Indian redmi note 5 which is actually a redmi 5 plus rebadged as a note 5 for the Indian market it has the snap 625 processor and single rear camera and again only 1 UK 4g band supported no band 20 or band 7

I would think it is probably down to the video content being in 16:9 not the phones 18:9 have you tried shooting a bit of video with the phone and then playing that to see if it is different (fills the screen). Also are there any settings you can change in the video app itself like fit to screen

I just wanted to view YouTube full screen. Not a big deal. It's a great phone
I'm really surprised this has not got hotter, decent price, would be better if it was closer to the £100 mark like the note 4 usually is.
