Gsmarena is my first stop to compare against other phones.
Google is the second (and last) stop..
Google and aliexpress have feedback for sellers much like ebay.
Title says £159 but description says £165?

Depends what colour you get and conversion rate, I get £162 to £177

Redmi Note 5 Pro is the same as Note 5 in China, just a different name in India.
I'd pay 150 no more note 4 is doing good so far

I didn't know there was a 3gb variant? The pro in India is 4gb or 6gb ram.
Xiaomi's model convention is well confusing! According to GSMarena the Redmi Note 5 (Global) is the Redmi 5 Plus (China). I think this aliexpress listing has the wrong processor listed. Should be the snapdragon 625.

Correct. And the Pro is a different to a Plus I'm waiting for the Pro.

If this listing is for the Redmi Note 5/Redmi 5 Plus (which I think we've established) then the processor they've advertised is wrong.

What about dual camera?
Edited by: "Alik" 7th Mar
This says it has dual camera and the pictures definately aren't the plus. Plus camera lens is central

Good shout. Wrong picture? I think there's so much wrong or confusing with the listing I'd be cautious at the moment.

I think you are confused with the naming convention in different regions.

Redmi 5 Plus (China) = Redmi Note 5 (India) - Snapdragon 625 and single camera.

Redmi Note 5 (China) = Redmi Note 5 Pro (India) - Snapdragon 636 and dual camera.

Yep agreed that the Note 5 Pro is only a 4/6gb ram model. But this listing has all the features of the Note 5 Plus but says 3gb RAM.

So I smell a bit of a rat tbh.

Caveat Emptor.
Tiptop spot

Anyone else noticed the increase in shipping on aliexpress over the last month? Seems to have gone from 2-3 weeks to 5-7 weeks without any updates on their HQ blog page of info!
Just a bit of a heads up, the same item is available to order from Bangood and slightly cheaper for the black 64gb model i ordered. They also list the same storage/ram configuarations so most likely legit as haven't had any issues with Bangood myself.

The Indian version is 4/6GB RAM but the Chinese version may be 3/4GB however we don't know yet as it will be released on the 16th of March so I believe this is a preorder.

The model on Banggood isn't global version and is missing band 20.
Check again i'm pretty sure they list the non global and global models.

This whatever it is supposed to be cant be Chinese version redmi note 5 because all other Chinese redmi note models in the past have had mediatek chips not snapdragon and do not support band 20 like what this claims so what this is god knows i cannot find any info anywhere about a 3gb / 32gb snapdragon 636 with band 20 support

My bad, Banggood do have the non global and global version.

Might order the 4/64GB black global version on Banggood but not sure if there is any tax with Air Parcel Register shipping or may wait and see the price on GearBest first.
this is the 3gb/32gb bangood global version with band 20 and its £177.34 pre order so i would check what you have ordered if i was you sory tried to post link to it but apparently bangood are banned on hukd and they wont let link be posted
Apologies i did not realise bangood were banned? i have used them for years myself with no issues. I ordered the global 64gb band 20 supported model, i have been hit once with tax most orders go through fine with air parcel register from past experience.
Banggood have pre order listings for redmi note 5 3gb/32 global version with band 20 for £177.34 also for 4gb/64 global version with band 20 for £192.12 and they also have the 4gb/64gb NON GLOBAL no band 20 for £184.73
Anybody know why banggood been banned i have never had a problem with them and have posted deals from them in the past

I have had tablets and phones from GearBest using UK priority mail shipping and haven't been hit once as they declare the value as $20, same with Banggood, ordered a TV Box using Priority Air Mail shipping and was declared as $19 but haven't used Air Parcel Register before with .

The additional info you've add is for a different phone.
It says the processor is 625 in the picture, where as this deal is for the newer version

There is no note 5 in China with these specs all Xiaomi Chinese versions phones do not support band 20. I have searched high and low on the web trying to find any sort of info on this 3gb/32gb snap 636 and other than this aliexpress xiomi MC store and a banggood listing there is no info to be found. If you could point me in the right direction it would be most appreciated

Thanks for that but according to the article they are the same specs as the Indian i.e the 3gb/32gb or 4gb/64gb and will have the snap 625 and a single camera. Whilst the redmi note 5 pro will be either 4gb/64gb or 6gb/64gb and will have the snap 636 and dual back camera so identical to the Indian. So still non the wiser to this listing

The Snapdragon 625 single camera is already released in China as Redmi 5 Plus, I think you are confusing yourself.

Just wait till the 16th of March for the Note 5 specs.
