Great phone. Picked it up when Xiaomi's official website had it at £139.
real good phone for the money
More likely to receive it from ebuyer too, given mine & recent experiences with Xiaomi
While it's not as "cheap" as grey market's I guess it's the peace of mind not having to deal with customs charges / Dodgy over seas sellers / lost item head aches etc. It's a good price for that alone.
No idea why this is considered a good deal.

eGlobal are currently selling the Mi A3 4/128 for £134.99! The 64GB variant is only £120 (both have micro SD expansion and a triple camera setup)

Some people want to buy from UK seller and don't want to have the possible risk of customs, VAT or perceived hassle if something goes wrong....not that Ebuyer have exactly sterling customer support

The chinese sellers have an immediet price advantage as they don't charge 20% VAT so while it's cheaper for us, hooray, it doesn't benefit our wonderful government and all that social goodness they provide, sometimes.

That all said, it looks like eglobal are more expensive for the same model, at £185

eGlobal have no customs fees...

Also, I don't really know why people would choose the A2 over the A3 (unless they're really hung up on the sole drawback of the A3; the 720p screen...same resolution as an iPhone XR).

People are of course welcome to spend £45-60 more on an older/less capable phone. For the rest of us, the A3 is a no brainer

eglobal have no customs fees but it's possible, although happens rarely, that you might have to pay a customs fee and VAT at 20%. eglobal almost certainly do not pay this on your behalf.

OK that's good, but they still don't pay unless they have too.

Anyhoo, am I right that eglobal are dearer than ebuyer for this specific model or have I got that wrong?
