I'll delete my post so as not to confuse folks. voted hot

Vendor states "95% that you need to pay customs taxes" which will add 20% VAT plus an additional 2.5% Customs Duty plus whatever DHL charge for admin (£10?), say total £41.28 to pay gov.uk/goo…uty

OP .. as per your Deal link, it says that 95% WILL need to clear Customs Duties? (that's a LOT!). :-(

What's your take on that please?. :-)

i think that omly applies if you use dhl if you use the standard aliexpress shipping 28+ days which most people on here say no customs i personally always use dhl to get phone within 5-7 days and pay customs only vat and dhl charge there is no duty on mobile phones









so with tax it would be approx £180 is that still a good deal for this phone?
Also what is the max SD card it will accept please?
thanks

128 gb uses the second sim slot you can either use nano sim or micro sd card up to 128gb

I may just sell my RN3 SD and buy this.

2GB/16GB special version is £121.26 from same seller

what's the camera like?

I have redmi 3 pro and having issues with it. I did put in power saving mode from the settings. It asked me to restart the device which I did. Then it just got stuck on MI logo. Many attempts to hardreset all failed. It eventually came back on with black screen the only thing working on it is the camera, fingerprint sensor and google weather/internet. I cannot access the settings.

I know wrong place to post but is there any otherway to get into phone settings?

Thanks

Yep. You need to be clear buying this type of phone - brilliant for the price and quality but its at the expense of accessing warranty and post sale support.

cant seam to be able to take the £6.96 replacement warranty off so the price is £146.10

Have you unlocked bootloader? What rom is it running?



No I have not unlocked the bootloader.

I have downloaded phone PC Suite which is showing the current version installed is V7.3.2.0.0.IHPCNDD.

All the steps I have carried out so far has failed. Not sure what todo next.

That's not an official Xiaomi Rom, it's a dodgy one put on by the seller and it's not safe to use, all of them are buggy, don't get updates and some have major security issues and built in backdoors. Follow a guide to remove the vendor rom and go to the official global rom. The bootloader does not need to be unlocked to do this.

Anyone know of a good charger, the one in sent with the phone seems a bit flimsy.

I would look for the blackberry chargers - up to 2.1A with the yellow plug - used to be reasonable on Amazon/eBay (about £3-5 refurb & new) - some come with international adapters. They are sound as a pound (can generally charge tablets too). Anker ones too, but their CS is what gets the reputation (they sell rebranded decent but not perfet china tech IMHO, just back it with great CS).

EDIT: If you go for an Anker usb port charger, make sure you have good cables - they can make a huge difference - I use RavPower, TronSmart & Anker (check Amazon for technical reviews that mention charge rate in Amps, then double check prices on eBay :)).

i read in an article that the redmi pro will have the SD 820 for the indian market

I went for the 2gb version from the supplier, fingers crossed.

Don't know about this phone in particular but if the boot loader is unlocked you could flash firmware. xda-developers.com would be the place to look.

Someone beat me to that reply

I just bought the redmi 3 pro (5" screen). What is the appeal for 5.5" screen you can't use easily with one hand? Do you guys all have a specific usage requirement that justifies the big screen? Am I missing out on something or maybe you are all ogres. LOL

Easier to browse internet, better video experience, bigger equals better.
As phones have become phablets they have resulted in a drop in tablet usage so effectively you're getting 2 devices in one.
That's my experiences anyway.

cyanogenmod official build is now available for reminding note 3 pro. I've been using for couple of weeks now having been using Chinese xiaomi from before that. was easy to install and has option to install nightly builds etc.

autocorrect fail reminding = Redmi

I can easily use a 5.5" screen phone one-handed... I think you must just have very petite hands!

I might see if I can change to the note then, especially as cyanogenmod is available. It's not on the redmi 3 pro (not official anyway). Don't want MIUI crap.
Edited by: "brooky_agn" 1st Sep 2016

I don't understand the rom on this phone, the latest official miui 8 for this model I can find is running on lollipop, yet it's listed as running official global marshmallow. Also while there is an official cyanogenmod build they are only nightly's/snapshots, no 'stable' yet. If you check the forum thread there are a number of build issues being reported
