Heat added, great price, there is cheaper, but they are global rom, so pay the premium for global version, always global Version.

Also guys, don't forget you may pay customs.

I am just using one now got it today paid no customs 😁
That is a very good price, they just need to spell Gold correctly in the pictures
better of from eglobal for about £10 more no customs and delivery within 10 days
Is it me or is the Note 5 coming down in price quicker than the Note 4 did? Heat added, heck of a lot of phone for the price. My last 2 phones have had 64GB storage and wouldn't go back to 32GB now.

benefit of this over htc 10 evo?

runs cooler, better battery, less bezels, bit more ram and rom, more updates? anything else?
not a heavy user at all

has no nfc, water resistance and costs a fair bit more

My son smashed his Note 3 and needed a new phone urgently, so I bought off ebay for £199 (UK, VAT included!) rather than eGlobal that I was looking at for £165. Was an EU version with CE certification and English manual plus and official gel case in the box.

Very snappy phone. Great price if you can wait.

That's great who did you buy off
Typing using my Redmi Note 5, stunning handset, really recommend it, you really won't regret it.
I wonder why some manufacturers insist on saying 5.99" instead of just 6".

How much would it be?
Had mine a few weeks, really like it
I bought the blue one as it looks good, but in hindsight I'd just buy the cheapest and get a cover, to protect it and because the camera sticks out so it wobbles when on a flat surface

I had huge concerns with the camera sticking out, and the lense getting scratched. I purchased a lense protector from a seller on AliExpress, and have it put on the back
Guys , would this be significantly better/faster than my old galaxy note 4 ?
Cheers

You're moving from an ageing flagship to a very recent budget to mid level phone. I had a Note 4 and needed a new phone and thought about getting one of these, but in the end I settled on a used LG V20 for about £300 - the better camera and removable battery really swayed it for me, though this ran it close - if I didn't have to wait so long for it to arrive then I might've gone for one. I've heard lots of great feedback, the only downside is the camera, but it depends on what your expectations are for the camera of a £150 phone!

Cheers for this, went for one to replace my aging smart ultra 6 which has lasted well for almost 3 years! I got my wife the note 4 last year and it's a decent bit of kit so looking forward to this arriving... Anyone got any recommendations for a decent case to give a bit of protection without looking cheap?

Have Xiaomi phones solved the audio recording problems yet with their new models? My 4a still sounds awful when recording video or audio because of the Active Noise Cancellation and that's running the latest version of Miui etc?

A good case here ebay.co.uk/itm…2il and if you want a glass screen protector i use MOFI full screen ones can be got here ebay.co.uk/itm…rue when buying cases or screen protectors use the redmi note 5 pro ones the redmi note 5 pro and the redmi note 5 global are identical for cases and screen protectors. If you are do not fancy the case just look on aliexpress for redmi note 5 global version or pro
Cheers for that, looks like a decent case, will take a look on AliExpress as well, not in a rush as the phone will take an age anyway!
Time for my usual pointer - don't forget TCB - it's showing as a little over 4% cashback!

I have just done exactly that. My Note 4 was getting a bit too slow and the battery life was pretty poor even with a new battery (I think the software updates made it inefficient). This is a beast of a phone with a very good camera, I only miss the stylus but for the price I can live without it for now.
I bought a Note 5 pro a month ago from AliExpress and today I miss the delivery and the Royal Mail left a card with customs charge of £14.74 plus £8 handling fee. I wish I never ordered one.

By the way, it was NOT a special delivery as they say normal delivery won’t incur the customs which in my case was wrong. Arggg..

What to do? Collect or send it back and ask for a refund? Help 🙏

What aliexpress store did you order off and are you sure that the £14.74 doesn't include the £8 royal mail charge the last 2 phones i ordered of aliexpress got caught for customs as well £12.82 including the £8 and £13.01 including the £8 does the card left say £22.74 or £14.74 and you are assuming the £8 is on top

The store name is Xiomi online store. Maybe you are right about the charge which is total of £14.74 but I am not happy about that as I am not anticipating the customs charge 😩

That is the same store as my 2 he marks the package with a value of $45 to keep charges low if picked up. Avoiding customs even with the standard delivery is not guaranteed but is the best chance to, at the moment it looks like there is a purge on by customs for aliexpress orders. Anyway this is still a cracking deal for a excellent phone even with the £14 .74 customs charge i personally with my 2 orders am quite happy as a phone of this spec and build quality would cost a hell of a lot more in the UK. It is the royal mail charge i don't like for paying the customs on your behalf. If i was you i'd keep the phone it is well worth it and just put this down to experience.
