Worth noting this version isn't compatible with O2 4G or any of it's MVNOs (giffgaff, Tesco, etc).

With the exception of GiffGaff, I honestly can't understand why anyone would still be using O2 in 2016.

No worse than EE CS. at least o2 don't charge you to speak to someone in less than an hour.

Plus, o2 priority rewards are brilliant use for some. Skipping queues at gigs is a huge bonus

CS is poo from all of them. I don't think there's much difference between any of them. They are all more interested in profit margins than reinvesting in infrastructure.

Sorry I thought since you were making up mindless nonsense then I might as well join in.

is this upgradeable to MM?

states "OS MIUI 7 (Based on Android 5.1) " on site

absolutely brilliant phone. got the 32gb version to replace my galaxy note 2 about 6 months ago. No regrets at all.everything works perfect. Best thing battery last me about 3 days.

I notice they list this phone as pro prime, they've definitely made prime models in the past, but not seen a pro prime model, is it the correct name for the phone or one that isn't yet listed on device specifications? This is the closest spec I can find and might be the same phone >

I get 80Mb/40Mb 4G connection from EE on my phone and I live in a sh:tty lincolnshire town, I also have EE Broadband which is 40Mb/20Mb and they upped my 4G 4GB data allowance on my mobile to 10GB a month because I moved from Sky Broadband to EE broadband, so far couldn't be happier with EE.

​As far as I know, there's no such thing as the pro prime, it's just what some folk call the 32Gb/3Gb version. It makes no mention of pro prime on the xiaomi website, it just mentions that 2 versions are available.

does this comes with google play?

I have the 32gb/3gb ram version in gold. Running Xiaomi Developer Global Rom - its bootloader unlocked and I have TWRP installed.

Phone is stable and I get 2 or 3 days battery life. It's fast and sleek - all round really happy with it. Only gripe is the camera could be better.

I like MIUI 8 but some may prefer vanilla Android in Cyanogen Mod or Resurrection Remix.

I changed the ROM on mine to global when I got it but the bootloader is still unlocked, do you know how to lock it again? I need to install an app for work's emails but it wont work with the bootloader unlocked....!

And completely agree, the camera isn't fantastic, althoug I use the Snapseed app to post process a lot of my pics and it works wonders

Not had any issues using mine for calls/data on 3UK in the few months I've had it. I don't think band 20 (800MHz) is a necessity unless you're trying to use 3's VoLTE HD calling "supervoice". Can't say anything for other networks.

Also Android Nougat has been ported to this and its almost completely stable.

Getting back to the original thread, the phone itself is great, but this is not a great price.

Get the "enhanced" version if you Band 20 / O2 LTE compatibility.
Go for the Global ROM version, unless you're comfortable installing your own ROM.
3gb/32gb over the 2gb/16gb

Just because, I am telling the truth, I am trolling. You are selling Chinese rubbish here. If it was a decent phone, from a UK seller, I would had no problem voting it hot. But messing people around by selling foreign rubbish is just plain greed. ​

There are decent Samsung, LG, One plus, Huawei, HTC phones which are made for UK and come with manufacturers warranty. IPhone is expensive but comes with warranty and peace of mind as well. No need to waste time messing around with viruses and Chinese roms or banking apps not working.

You can run into viruses and app compatibility issues on any of the devices that you just mentioned.

Incidentally I once had an iPhone but it was bricked by an official iOS update. It wasn't even a week out of warranty and Apple wanted £260 to fix it. Where was the peace of mind that you mentioned then?
