Its actually £68 total with cashback


To avoid warranty change location to US and than change back to UK
Quidco tracks around £5.60
It doesn't say but I presume this is the Chinese version so no Band 20, still a good deal though. The Band 20 version with 32GB storage has been £80 before cashback though.

Band 20/32GB storage for about £10 more:

It's a shame the 15% quidco has ended.

I think they all work fine globally
Only issue they might not support 4G on some networks
I might be wrong
But mine works fine

It's China version flashed with Global ROM by the seller. Seller's other Redmi 4A listings. Global Versions say it in the title and is also indicated over the primary image. Whereas China version say "Original" in title, and have "Global ROM" tagged over primary image.

It'll be ready to use out of the box. Although it's probably recommended to reflash it. According to their FAQ, it is Official Global ROM:

1. Does it have Google Play and Multi-language?Yes. Official global ROM … 1. Does it have Google Play and Multi-language?Yes. Official global ROM with Multi-language and google play store will be installed to your cellphone, but we need to open the box to do it.

However, because they flash it themselves, there's a potential for the seller to add their own apps (adware etc). Some are known to do this but that might be more down to using custom vendor ROMs and mightn't be an issue since it's an Official ROM.

They're the same in terms of hardware except for B20 support and will both be installed with Global ROM. Table of differences which the seller has in description. China model has China ROM factory pre-installed hence why they need to open the box to install Global ROM themselves. However, 'Global Version' linked in comment #3 will already be factory pre-installed with Global ROM hence sealed box. It isn't essential if you don't need B20 but it might be advisable for peace of mind regarding software.

Hahahaha, and me too!.

I still have my Doogee X5 Pro Phone from like 2.5 years or so back too! (cost me the best part of almost £60 at the time?, if I recall well?).

Perhaps we're both in the minority category?, lol. :-)

Generally not provided you choose standard shipping.
For those querying over the OP's Phone Deal compatibility with the UK, etc etc.

The OP's Deal is for the 'Original', yes, it will work in the UK (but you'll NOT get the Band 20, that some 4G Networks require, that's all?).

The 'Global' version of this same Phone will also work in this Country, but is comparable with everything! (as it DOES support Band 20, that all the UK 4G Networks support!).

So the Global version preferable to that of the Original, or whatever?.

But that's a minor really?, as not everyone is requiring a 4G-Enabled anything in the first place? + a lot of UK Networks are able to function plenty well enough without the Band 20 inclusion regardless?, so ..... )

It all comes down to personal preference. :-)
Hi.
Seems a good deal.
Can you tell me if there is an import duty on these phones?
Very well explained
In summary not everyone uses 4G
It works perfectly fine on UK networks
Well MIUI/Android is good operating system in £65 pounds

Here's the global version

Personally i would only buy the official global versions so you know you will get full 4g support and you be sure the software hasn't been tampered with.
How do you remove the warranty? It adds $4.95 to total

Comment #2. Change location to US, add to basket. Change shipping location back to UK. Might have to be done on desktop website.

Thanx. :-)
Personally I went for the 4 with the snapdragon 625 (not the Helios x20 as its battery life is a lot worse) and 3gb of ram, more expensive at £125 though, having used a 4xx snapdragon before it was just a little sluggish in places (haven't tried the 430 though), plus the 4100 mah battery means the phone lasts 3-4 days fairly easily with my usage, much better than the s6 etc I have had before. Good price all the same for a good phone that will do a lot better than similarly priced phones.
