Can PayPal be used on this site?


There was no PayPal option sorry
heat, seems good value for the spec. ive bought a few phones from them via the uk app and no issues so far
Hot deal, better than the O2 Huawei Y6 one recently posted.
What micro SD CARD does this take up to?
They kept this quiet!

Who bought the 4gb version for £99 the other day?

Good deal for the basic user. Decent battery

Can you leave a short review when you get the chance to play and set them up?

Not many reviews around for Redmi 8 and it's nice to hear from the average user sometimes
This version 3gb 32gb could probably by compared to Moto G6 play with similar specs. Also 3gb ram and Snapdragon 425? 425 processor is slower as well.

Will let you know, maybe remind me in a week or so. Sure I'll be helping set them up.

For the money, they look great for what my parents will use them for.

These will probably sell out quite quickly !
Only works on 2.4 ghz wifi , it's not dual band from the specs on the site
80 quid for a more than capable phone. Bonkers!!

I purchased one for a friend of mine... trying to track cases at the moment...seem to be thin on the ground if someone could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated
Is the only difference on this against the £99 posted earlier 1gb less ram and 32gb memory? Thanks

Yes, £20 less for 1GB RAM and 32GB on board storage less.
Huge battery, it should be a good standby phone or kick about.
Cheap !!

Interesting interpretation of "proper" for a phone supplied by a foreign merchant and with no direct access to UK-based consumer redress if there is a warranty issue after say month 4.

No it isn't 425, its a faster 439
ShamWow27/02/2020 16:34

That's what I was trying to say.... The Moto G6 has 3gb and 425 processor. This Redmi 8 has 3gb and 439 processor. Similar specs but Redmi should be better although Moto G6 has pretty much stock Android
My brothers Xperia Z5 Premium conked out the other day. He can't really spend more than £120 on a new phone. Is this any good, and how does this compare to his old Z5 and the 4gb redmi 8 that was on here yesterday?

Its gonna feel a lot different from 2015 phone with a decent processor back then 3gb ram

That was a premium phone at the time but was 5 years ago..... I'd probably wait if £120 is his budget and aim for 4gb ram for a better snappier phone

Although for £40 off the usual price of £119 this is a good deal.... great battery on this for 2-3 days usage
Shame the 64 GB not available but it may appear again when they clear the backlog of last weeks orders

Ships from France.Takes about a week
I dont know if its still the case but you may have to set the region to Hong Kong or Falklands to get all the feature to work , face unlock and a much bigger theme store to name 2...

On my third Xiaomi and they are very very good....

Nope
toge27/02/2020 21:35

Nope


How could you do this to me?

Lol thanks for the reply
Looking at this as an upgrade for a Huawei P8 Lite 2017.

Screen res looks lower but battery is a lot bigger.

Anyone have an opinion on this in general?
Hot!
