whats the deal with import duty tho?



Pick standard delivery and 999 times out of a thousand you wont have to pay; I have ordered many hundreds of times, with item values up to nearly £200, and only had duty on the few parcels where the only options were DHL/FEDEX.

DHL/FEDEX ALWAYS charge you, even if the parcel value is declared as below the threshold, they will still try it on by sending you a bill for £3-4; but they supply no paperwork to justify it, and you get no receipt from paying it; so I ignore the demands and they just delay the delivery by 24-48 hours. My phone currently holds about 200 such demands from this year alone, for regular deliveries I get that are below the threshold, not one was paid.

Depends on if it gets flagged up but they usually put $45 on the packet and every one I've ordered from them had not been hit with duty.

For the price there's not another phone out there that can touch it. Especially for battery life.

I'm typing on my 4X right now and although it's my secondary phone for work use it's never let me down yet.

Amazing phone, I only just got mine a few days ago. So there are a few omissions tech wise on this phone such as there being no NFC and no quick charge. But if a full 2 day battery life is your thing then this is the one!

Would you mind telling me how you would compare this phone vs the Huawei Honor 8?

I've got the honor 8 with it's stock "huawei" rom and it's not bad but i've never really loved it, it's GPS is so wonky it can be hilarious, except when you need it for Pokémon etc.

the Honor does have NFC and fast charging, the battery is pretty good but nothing to write home about. I feel I'd probably be able to get a full refund for mine which is why i'm thinking of getting rid in favour of a Xiaomi or an iPhone

Link please

Bought this for my mum and its flawless; hers constantly gets mistaken for an iphone and she enjoys telling people its an android.


Make sure to go through TCB.

It would be unfair for me to comment as I have no first hand experience of that phone.

Anyone else not being able to get on to AliExpress?

Seems great from reviews, I guess this has some iffy software/spyware from source though?

Doubt it. It's a reputable seller. Also, It's the global version, so there's no reason for the seller to break the seal.

Great, thanks

If mine ever turns up from Banggood (paid a bit more than this for it) I'll be able to see whether its any good.

Any difference in choosing between China, Spain and France for dispatch location?!?

Cheers dude.

Spain & France options don't ship to UK.

Horrible colour but a great deal

I don't mind the Gold colour...but I need 2 for myself and the missus, that'd be a pain picking up the wrong phone all the time

...of course, I could get different covers...doh!

got the redmi note 4x which is fairly similar .... never buying another mainstream brand again ... phone itself is excellent, battery is exceptional
Edited by: "zoopakev" 20th Sep

Ordered, now waiting to see how long it takes to be delivered

I got mine a couple of weeks ago and can get 3 days of battery with moderate use. There is a setting so that you can turn it off (e.g. at 1am) and get it to switch on again at before the alarm goes off I reckon with this I might be able to get 4 days. An excellent phone which I initially dismissed due to the 720p screen, but I haven't really noticed any difference from my LG G2 (1080p). The only features which I could miss are lack of NFC and face detection to prevent the screen going blank.

I'm sure that Xiaomi, Huawei and Lenovo have an interesting feature where if you switch your phone off (lets says you don't want the alarm to go off) then the phone will think "hey I'm switched off, I'd better wake up and set this alarm off", Catches me out every time with a new device from these guys.

Tempted, but still hoping note 4 will drop to this price on a deal....

Is the Note 4 significantly better than this then?

Soooo tempted. I've got a redmi note 4 which I love and wouldn't say no to another Xiaomi .

I thought the difference was only the increased screen size on the note 4 (5.5" over the 5" with this one) , could be wrong though.
I'm holding out for a note 4 in black .... c'mon ali express / banggood !!

Why?? To keep the phone safe you will put it in a case that hides 90% of the coloured part anyway. I bought the Rose Gold, as it was £10 cheaper last time the Note's were on offer; it looked fantastic and it is almost a pity to cover it up - except I drop it regularly !!
You can also buy replacement backs in various colours for a couple of quid.

How are the screens on these...do you need screen protector, will they break easy if dropped?

I want a 5.5" screen though and no matter what case I buy it wont increase the screen size so still going to hold out for the note 4 if that's okay ??
If I was to go down that route of covering the phone with a case to change its colour , it'd need to cover 100% of the colour to do its job correctly for me and being OCD it would be a real issue for me if the phone had 10% of its original colour still visible , lol ..... helpful for those who aren't that bothered though I guess.

Consistently hear good things about Xiaomi phones so have ordered this, thanks OP.

Does anyone know how long this usually takes to ship from ali express? I'm moving in a month and now wonder if it will arrive after I've left...

The note 4 is quite a bit more powerful and had been down to £90, the only reason to get this is for the smaller screen, other than that it's an all round worse phone. Worse processor (chipset), worse battery, worse screen etc.

Usually take about 2 weeks as aliexpress sellers ship the same day unlike gearbest etc who take a week before they even dispatch.

Hi, could anyone point me to a solid resource that explains the security risks of these Chinese brand phones?

Since the (?Lenovo) motherboard spyware saga, I'm very wary of brands from China but worry I'm missing out on good, affordable tech....

Thanks.

Can't find specs confirming this will work in Sweden?
