So, what are you doing about it?



(A) I'm not buying "backup" phones, only ONE that I'll use. Having backup phones, laptops, TV's is very harmful to the environment here and to human rights in Africa.

(B) This phone is the chinese version flashed with the international rom according to the sellers description. Be careful.

No idea about the phone but dont forget TCB!
about the usual price for this model

"Thinking of getting this as a backup." < This is really harmful to the environment, buy one when you need it/if you'll really use it. Children are sent into mines in Africa for the lithium and other metals to make phones like this.
I wanna buy a Mi A1. Do you guys have any suggestion which site to get it from?
Also is there going to be a band20 Redmi Note 5?
not sure if risky buying from aliexpress given the gearbest problems

Do you never drive where you could walk? Do you turn everything off at the mains or leave anything on standby? Do you recycle everything possible at home and away? I respect your point mate, but almost nobody takes only what they need in this life. Also, this is the wrong forum to preach when it’s aimed at shopaholics after a bargain.

OP, thankyou I actually have been after a backup phone (gasp) since my current HUKD-sourced Chinese phone has become sentient and decided to fail me whenever I need to use it urgently.

"It's Chinese version"

Question:
Is that how could can tell it's really an 'international' rom and not the 'global' rom?

Using DHL will be an increased chance of customs on it, so if you want it quicker, you will sadly pay more =/

I know, but it says there is no customs for eu using dhl.
Spend a bit more (£80-90) and go for the prime version instead from aliexpress.

- octacore
- fingerprint scanner
- 16mp front camera

and more

This is not the same as the 4A , this is a Note version, and has the larger 5.5 inch screen ( as well as running the newer version of Android and the improved PDAF camera ).
Personally i prefer the smaller 5" screen size as it is more pocket friendly, so will stick with my 4A .
Is good for a mid range phone. Can't expect flagship quality at this price point

​faxmax is correct. this is not a real "note " phone, they've just called it that.

Source please??
I dont think this is the official global version by Xiaomi, it seems like the chinese version.
The seller will open your new sealed phone and flash with a international rom before sending.
So you will not receive in 'sealed box'. Personally I would wait until 'official' Global versions are released shortly.

Read no.3 where it says "Please read the TIPS carefully before placing an order!".....

"3. Please leave us a comment if you want a sealed box. Otherwise we will unseal the box to do "Quality Control" and flash the multi-language ROM for the Chinese version. The original box from manufacturer is sealed. It's only with English and without "Play Store".

Lithium mining in Africa only amounts to 20% of world production and almost exclusively from mines in Zimbabwe. Most of the world's lithium is extracted from brine via evaporation. From a mining point of view it is not traditional mining so very unlikely children would be involved as its mainly heavy drilling and pumping equipment that is being used.

The shirt on your back is far more likely to have had child labour involvement than the production of lithium.
If your phone died 3 months later, like mine : expect no help, What So ever. Extra warranty is worthless. You send it to Poland ( their eu offices) for fixing and it returns unopened. They will not refund your money or do anything then insisting you send to China to be looked at. Photos, videos, and explanation ignored. Three months without a phone !
Any codes to reduce price?
