Who is the seller worth paying extra to go a different marketplace?

Who is the seller worth paying extra to go a different marketplace?


Banggood on the whole get better feedback than gearbest. The other deal was tomtop who are big but not sure if they are any good, its a bit of a lottery at best..
Great price - i had my preorder at £161. Money has already been taken so I think i'll leave it rather than risk not getting a refund, but if you don't already have one then this is a great deal.

I noticed a Global version has crept onto Banggood too (pricier) - do we know what the difference is??
I think I'll wait until I can get the phone from EU seller or EU warehouse. EMS already lost my racing quad, and it was a huge problem to get my money back.
Thanks for posting, I've taken the plunge. I opted not to save the extra 3.77 and paid with paypal who are usually pretty good when it comes to disputes.

this is the global version check specs got band 20
Noticed that the new note 5 is meant to be released on or around the 11th Oct. To wait or not to wait? Won't be pure android but will the specs be similar?
If I buy this any recommendation on a case?

I bought one for a quid from Aliexpress... no idea if it'll be any good, but the write up sounded fine!

Yeah - it's the same one I ordered, but if you run a search there is also one marked as Global which still has Band 20

I see what you mean that one says restock on the 30th and this one 27th and the discount code only works on this one probably the other one must be the price after this deal has finished
Thinking of canceling my pre-order with GeekBuying since they're now saying the phone will ship after 28 days!

Wonder if Banggood will actually ship from 27th though...
I Bought an Xiaomi phone last year, battery packed up after 9 Months, trying to get it sorted was a long and lengthy process which took Months.
Scary really if you are paying Hundreds of Pounds to a Chinese based company makes it a lot more difficult to deal with repairs refund etc
Is it correct that this will be supported up to Android 9

etc etc

Not sure what you're hoping to accomplish though? Are you suggesting that people shouldn't consider a Xiaomi phone because you had a problem? They sell millions and having defects in any mass produced product is common for anything, not just electronics. Even then, if you bought it last year it's a different phone to any of the ones you've been commenting on recently. I can only imagine how many Samsung threads you'd be commenting on if you had have bought a Galaxy Note 7 instead

Yes it will be one of the first phones to get Android P

There are real potential problems when purchasing from China based company’s my comment is factual, fair and informative.

If the issue is potential problem with China based companies then how come I haven't noticed your comments on any other Chinese phone thread, besides Xiaomi? I'll ask again, "are you suggesting that people shouldn't consider a Xiaomi phone because you had a problem?" or are all deals from the likes of AliExpress, Gearbest, Banggood etc off limits because "there are real potential problems when purchasing from China based companies"?

Do you honestly think people don't know this? I guess at the end of the day it's all about how risk averse you are or the question is how much is a warranty worth? I would be interested to know what phone you have now and how much you paid for it. You literally cannot get anything like the spec here from the major brands for anything approaching this money.
Just ignore him, some people expect UK treatment from China come on. I have bought that Xiaomi deal for the note 4 from ali express. Sure its taken 2 weeks and its in the air between China and UK. At least the tracking has been informative albeit a bit slow. If you get 1 year from a ton phone youve got your moneys worth you was only 3 months off that. Take the hit put it down to experience. If you bought a samsung galaxy note 8 for 900 then you have the right to cry.
First 200 orders only - seems all claimed now - 9BGESMA164 doesnt work anymore
I have bought tons of stuff from Chinese companies and still do. Things take a little longer to deliver and return (if needed) that's all. I have never been hit with import duty, and although sometimes long winded the RMA process is very good. To the point that taking a few pictures and adding a few explanations of issues, normally obviates the need to actually send anything back at all for a full or partial refund (partial - if you have had the item for a year or more).

I've not got anything yet from China but will be getting a xiaomi phone when the right deal turns up. But is there any specific tips for not getting import tax like the type of shipping or something? Obviously I'm a good citizen and I'd pay tax with no qualms but if I'm not asked them I'm not gonna request to be taxed.

With the Pixel 2 Looking towrds the £1000 mark, this phone is looking very good. Whats tempting to me to this is AndroidOne! Pure android Sub £200 pohne, yes please!

How good are bangood? I see they use PayPal so no fees for buying abroad so thats cool!
There's been so many deals for this phone and it hasn't even released yet.

Probably best to wait until it's actually released.

Always use the standard shipping it takes longer to arrive about 2-3 weeks but very unlikely to get picked up by customs not guaranteed but you would be unlucky if it did. Never use expedited ( DHL and such ) unless you want the phone quicker you will have to pay customs at 20% vat on the declared value ( most Chinese suppliers put a lower value on the declared value so probably wont be the full amount ) also the delivery company will charge about £12 for paying the customs on your behalf. Always pay with paypal if possible gives you extra protection if anything goes wrong

I have used banggood to buy my Mi6 was the first time i had used them i used the free air parcel registered delivery took 15 days from placing the order to the phone being in my hands, came well packaged no customs to pay tracking worked after 3 days from dispatch email there was a lull in the tracking from it leaving Hong Kong to it arriving in Uk of about 7 days then it came up on royal mail tracking 3 days later and arrived the following day what i liked about them was that they have a banggood order tracking problems and solutions forum where you enquire about your order and they reply i used it during the lull in the tracking i had a answer 24hrs later reassuring me everything was on track here is link to forum have a read through it forum.banggood.com/for…=78

It has been released. It's just that the Chinese resellers don't have their stocks yet.

Do you post this on every Xiaomi post? I've had a faulty Panasonic TV that must mean all Panasonic TV's are rubbish 😁

On the flipside of your anecdotal comment we have 2 Xiaomis in my house. One Redmi 3 (2 years old no problems) and one Redmi note 3 pro (one year old again no problems)

I guess you were unlucky.
How would battery life of this one
compare to Note 3?

Estimated shipping date was 27th Sep, however it changed today to "OUT OF STOCK"
I had a chat with banggood agent and that's what she said:

I apologize for the inconvenience caused.
items of your order are out of stock,
will be restock around 10/19




Would it be OK for you to wait until that date? Or would you rather cancel your order?


Not sure what to do now...

What a joke... Was 20th September when I orderd now it's a month after that. I wouldn't have minded if they hadn't already taken my money but doubt I'd get it back now so just gonna have to sit on it
