Get the 128gb version of the Mi6 glass back global ROM.

Use code GEEKBUY20 to get this price and potentially 4.4% TCB (need to be logged on for code to work). Use code GEEKBUY50 for a better discount if buying over $500 (ie 2 handsets). I've found codes to work on and off so if you get an error saying the use limit has been reached, try again in 30 minutes, they seem to be supplementing every time.

Best to pay directly by credit card for anything over £100 to get section 75 protection. The site wouldn't let me pay directly by CC yesterday and CSR weren't very helpful so ended up paying through PayPal in $ with CC conversion at Visa rate. Mestecard's rate is better if you have a no-fee CC with them.

Deal countdown for the phone says it expires at 8am GMT. Now live again - thanks Dollar.Dollar.Yo for the heads up!

As for the phone, dirt cheap flagship stuff if you're willing to take the customs risk and wait for delivery (slow air mail recommended). I'll post some reviews in the comments. No Band 20 (4G: FDD-LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8, TDD-LTE:B38/B39/B40/B41)

can someone please explain what on earth you must be running to get anywhere near 6gb of ram useage? seems like a massive overkill for a mobile phone and a gimmick selling point if you ask me! i have 8gb in my desktop and its needed im constantly at 5-7gb at any one time. but on a mobile?

ive got 3gb on my phone but never used more than 1.5gb at any one time. granted i dont game, but i run lots of apps at the same time, view social media, dropbox, smart home security including cameras and alarms so lots running in the background, when i check chrome theres always 10+ pages which havent been closed!

Generally multi-tasking. I tend to open apps and never close them. More RAM means they stay in quick-access memory and when you swap back they're ready to use.

Damn missed it

I guess only Adobe's products use as much RAM

I have this phone and it’s great. Never slows down. I do agree that 6GB of RAM seems unnecessary and is probably overkill today. However, it could just be a bit of future proofing.

I agree. Any problems with customs when you brought it in? Have you had any OS updates since getting it?

This should be unexpired - the deal is still working

How are you getting £275? PayPal rate is converting $379.99 to £295

When, posted, the full price was $388, now $399. Also using mastercard rate if you have a no - fee card.

looks good but for me no jackphone socket expansion or FM radio are a killer.
