Is this better than Redmi note 4?
If ir goes wrong has it to to be posted back to China?
Almost posted this myself. Can you see anything about NFC? Can't see whether it's supported or not.

The main difference is it has dual 12mpx camera so should be much better but the note 4 global will have band 20 support and a bigger battery they have the same snapdragon 625 soc both have 4gb / 64gb versions and the note 4 would be about £40 to £50 cheaper
Digging a bit deeper into specs the Mi 5X also has superior audio with DHS Audio calibration Algorithm along with a Standalone Audio amplifier supposedly producing high qulity audio

Think you're probably right. Saw a website last week and the leaked specs said it was supported, but think it was just wrong.

I think Redmi Note 4 is a lot more cheaper than £50 - it's more like nearly £100 for the 3GB/32GB and ~£70 for 4GB/64GB...

I wonder if the cameras are the same in Mi 6?

The cheapest 4gb/64gb note 4 global i can find at the moment are £145 .65 for gold and £155.78 for black at various stores on aliexpress and £148.69 on banggood but no stock so it is about £50
No B20 EU / UK band . Big Negative

No B20 ,no NFC ,why bother to kiss ass of Xioami. Better buy any similar Moto phone with both NFC and B20 band

Looking at maybe getting a xioami handset next but dont want a screen above 5.2" not sure which network I will be on as my EE contract ends in march I'm gonna go sim only but not 3/id as signal here is shocking thinking of the mi5 s global is it a worthy handset ????
seems very run of the mill...nothing to get excited about...no new innovation...but i suppose a good price...

Yes good choice but no band 20 support i was looking to get one especially as price is dropping but in the end got a good deal on a Mi 6 so just received it last Friday and fantastic phone again no band 20 support but that is not important to me even though i have a tesco sim ( O2 ) so no 4g but it uses hspa+ which is fast enough for my browsing
Actually don't see the point in this phone. Better off with mi5s or mi5 much better spec with exception of camera which was already very good
Wouldn't recommend buying from geekbuying. Made the mistake and it didn't turn up.

Yeah thanks but I don't need one until march as my p9 lite still holds a good charge and is already unlocked , I'm thinking by then android 8 (O) should be readily available in my budget . I must have a handset that allows wi-fi calling if I remain on EE as the p9 lite is not compatible but not certain I will stay with EE anyway depends what sim only deal they offer when my contract ends many thanks for the link though its a definite option
Why is sam_of_london accusing people of kissing Xiaomi's ass? Bizarre post even by his bizarre standards...

Big Xiaomi fan here (but i don't kiss their ass as sam alledges lol) but i agree. Can't see why this is a lot more than the Redmi Note 4 4gb/64gb global version?

I agree i suppose it must be the dual camera but until its reviewed ? also supposed to look very similar to iphone 7. But i have to say i thought the redmi note 4 was a backward step to the redmi note 3 especially the processor which i have, but have recently upgraded to the Mi6 now thats a phone and managed to get it for £287 fantastic worth every penny
Has anyone bought it? It says it's a preorder shipping in like 7 days. Do they charge you straight away or in 7 days when the pre-order becomes an order? If i am making sense :P
