Description seems to be wrong in gearbest

When you try to use the 5% discount voucher the price shoots way up. Still very tempted. Serious phone for that price.

Do these come from China? How long does that take? Any feedback on Gearbest as a company to deal with? Thanks

if its from outside EU, then it is not worth the trouble. better pay more and get 2 years warranty from within EU.

Yeah this is shipped from Chinese warehouse. They are perfectly fine for ordering stuff from. You will get what you buy. The problem is if something goes wrong it all becomes a bit of a nightmare. Gearbest themselves may be the best in the world to deal with you know yourself just the logistics of sending stuff back to China is a nightmare. This phone on reviews seems incredibly robust so fingers crossed none of that ever needs to happen as I am about to take the plunge myself! Battery on this thing is just so good for the price and that is the main winner for myself.

What is the story will Aliexpress? I see a few people on the other thread for this phone saying they have paid more to buy it through them as they get a warranty?

I do like the look of this phone, don't get me wrong but no NFC? Surely all handset's at this stage should come with it

Heat OP, I'd have no hesitation buying from them...

These look like a nice phone for the money, but I would step up to the redmi NOTE 3 pro, at around £115 (cheaper at banggood).
The Note has a slightly bigger 1080p 5.5 inch screen, a MUCH better CPU (according to Antutu scores of around 70000 vs 37000 for the redmi pro) and a better camera, plus the fingerprint sensor and stuff like this phone.
Key disadvantage is the bigger overall size, which may not suit some people and not quite as long screen on time for pokemon GO (due to faster processor and bigger / higher res screen).
I plan to buy the redmi note 3 pro in a couple of weeks, but I am just waiting to see what the new iphone camera does, incase it is totally awesome and I am tempted to pay 6 times the price...not expecting it??

I agree with you on getting it via EU, however I have to correct you here

We in the UK do NOT get the minimum EU warranty as the Sales of Goods Act UK covers us, not the EU policy

Also the 2 year warranty was an EU directive not an actual law, and so we could effectively choose to use it or not and we didn't

There is a case that in the UK, with UK bought goods, you can argue that it should stay fixed/working beyond any given manufacturer warranty, but we do NOT get an insta- 2 year deal on anything we buy.

Whether you buy it via China or the EU it does not have a warranty, unless the exact website/seller promises one, simple as that

Its a myth

However still buy from the EU if you can to save time on delivery and also cut out any possibility of getting charged tax for customs ^^

EDIT: For all those pointing out the Consumer Rights Act 2015, I know of it, used it today against my mobile provider EE in fact, it just isn't relevant because SOGA is so comprehensive and the CRA also does not guarantee warranties sooo....

£118 here from an EU seller with 2 year warranty so worth the extra, it's the 3s model but apparently they are basically the same

well also aware note 3 pro comes with 2 version. 2GB ram 16GB storage or 3GB ram 32GB storage. The £115 one is the 2G ram version and 16Gb storage. Redmi 3 pro has 3Gb ram 32Gb storage. Redmi 3 has 2Gb ram 16Gb storage.

No way am I going to 5.5inch. I already think 5 is oversized. I always laugh when people pull out their ridiculously sized phones. I am not quite sure how it has become the norm, they are so cumbersome. My currently phone is 4.5 inch and I think that is the perfect size for a mobile

I did get it from aliexpress. I have a long conversations with the xiaomi authorized store within aliexpress website. I tried to explain to them if my phone does not work do i need to send the phone to the UK or to somewhere else. However they can't understand english well and never get a proper response from them. The last reply from them is

"friend can you please contact aliexpess ?
whey charge the money they need afford the service right
if they do not afford it please ask for the detail reason we will help you with it
thanks
any news please let me know"

From their response it seems to me the xiaomi authorized store is not managed by aliexpress and they have no idea about the warranty. I think i'll have a word with aliexpress on the chat service which is usually offline...

I also saw this on the order page:
http://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/UT8jsh5XOVXXXcUQpbXU.png

if you click on details it doesn't state any repair or replacement service in the UK. That's how I start off a long conversation with the xiaomi store, and it's a bit of a headache.

Nevertheless, my order is already on the way now. The phone they sold is the "global" version though, which means it comes with full english manual, english and firmware updates (and no bloatware I pressume, have to find out) so that's the only good thing about ordering from aliexpress.

Would this phone get an OS upgrade to marshmallow? I've never bought a phone like this before and was wondering if it would get upgrades?

Is this better than the vodafone Smart Ultra 6? Thanks

It has a massive battery. If you want a phone with a massive battery, then this is your phone. (SU6 = 3000mah vs RN3 4000mah).

Isn't Aliexpress basically like eBay though and your seller could just be a guy with a phone refurbishing stall or someone selling whatever he can get his hands on?

Why is the camera better on the note? I'd be slightly tempted since its actually only 6mm bigger than my current 5 inch phone, though a bit heavier as well hmm..

accidentally pressed like haha.

anyway xiaomi does have their own aliexpress page:

xiaomi-mi.aliexpress.com/sto…148

so i expect it to be a legit seller not some random sellers.

those sellers from gearbest and banggood are probabaly 3rd party sellers so they won't have the global version.
Edited by: "superivanho" 29th Aug 2016

my experience with gearbest with faulty redmi note 2 mtk bought from EU warehouse. you have to send it back to china warehouse with your own cost. their ticket said no matter what for warranty buyer have to send back to china and only they are responsible for return post.

however after months with tracked RM to china, (royal mail will not take if you say mobile instead you have to lie about being some electronic gadget without battery about return package). they did send back different refurb unit.

so warranty from china is headache.

shall fit the redmi 3 pro version with the hole in the middle for fingerprint sensor. The case is sent from china but the phone is dispatched from china anyway so no point receiving earlier from UK sellers.

​It's noticeable coming from a 1080p screen, don't get me wrong. But still a good display.

Couple it with only being 5" AND the massive battery and this things just keeps going.

Redmi 4 is likely to hit in January with a rumoured 1080p screen just so you know.

Gearbest. ICE COLD.

​Generally agree but it depends on screen to size ratio. I'm fine with my 5.2" Huawei but I think 5.5" is a step to far. Unfortunately it is becoming the norm.

​Well just me guessing but the Base version of this can be had for about 80-85. Hence this now dropping as well. So perhaps the Base 16gb redmi 4 won't be too far off this price so 120-140 for a more usable 32gb version?

The Redmi 4 Pro is due, I think, this week and also the new Note (with a 5.7 inch screen) sometime next week. Might be worth hanging on for for few days to see how low the old stock goes. . .
