This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Is this a sign of things to come, pretty steep price, but a uk sourced one, with proper warranty, and no vat or customs to worry about?

There you go, for all the haters of the Chinese sites, incase you incur customs, and you get no warranty, this is what you pay in the UK, from a reputable source.

Also go through tcb for 2.2% back.

Yep, typical hukd, people complain about vat and customs and no warranty, and so you put it on a plate, with a phone in the UK, and it still gets voted cold. Haha you've got to laugh man.

Trust for you to find the first UK sourced Xiaomi
Very brave.heat added anyway
I currently have the Redmi Note 4X. I've been looking at the Pocophone F1 and from what I've seen it's hard not to for the coin vs specs. I'm not very savvy when it comes to mobiles phones (far from it), but tell me, why am I paying +£225 for the Xiaomi Mi 8?

No reason at all, the Poco F1 is better in key areas, like expandable storage, headphone jack etc.

The screen and camera are probably the real only differences, and the looks obviously.

The Mi8 has been advertised as a flagship, and that's all people will see, so they are willing to pay more, because they think they are getting more bang for buck, when in reality, they aren't.

So in your opinion, and I ask this for expertise than I do to bash this post - is the Pocophone the better buy at -£225?

Only one problem isn't the poco exclusive to India (and obviously missing some European bands) or have I misread something the other day..

That would be a right kick in the teeth, wouldn't it? They've announced more markets available 'soon' but I'm pretty sure you can purchase it with ease at the moment

I don't doubt it, but the radio bands will be different no band 20 etc

Popped a bit of heat on because I trust you know the cheapest for this actual product, that's worthy enough

But you didn't ask me that before the edit, did you?
I think the only reason this is going cold is because of the huge markup AD are putting on it, still if your in the market then this is a lot of handset for the cash

The Poco phone has all bands required to use in the UK, you can get one ready to go from the likes of eglobal/Toby deals for around the £250 Mark now, and no worrying if your phone will have 4g.

Cool
This is overpriced by about £100 if you take the HK price and add the 20% import vat on, so it’s definitely a little pricey...

These are £350 on a good day for the global version from eglobal etc. So AD are asking another £130, obviously I know AD wouldn't have got this for £350, but vat on the £350 would be £70, that takes it to £420. Then they'll add something on for themselves.

I think this is a competitive price, and I guarantee if this was THREE then it would be £100 more.
Voted cold before I read the comments, Soz mate, and catch your drift

No doubt, but like I said above in a roundabouts kinda way, this will be the UK prices, and three in particular will bump this up even more.

I’m definitely not arguing that we will see some profiteering, but I’m hoping that Three might not be quite so greedy, adding an extra £50 on top might be ok, at least Three will have larger buying power than AD.

They weren’t that bad when they first ranged Huawei/Honor

Yeah, did a quick check on ebay and they are selling 2nd hand for £550/600

There can’t be that many stupid people out there overpaying like that, surely?

P20 Pro can be bought new for £567 or from £415 second hand at CEX.

It's tempting at £400 for a new one, but I think I'm gonna pass it up and wait for the mix 3.
That said I've got a Pocophone F1 128GB on order from Eglobal for £281 but I think I'll end up giving that to the missus.
