Seems crazy cheap for a Mi 6 - The black one is £391! Is it possibly a mis price or an error?

My Xiaomi is faster on 3G network with O2 than my Samsung on 4G, simply they do not have the same coverage for 4G and you find your always trying to connect with 4G

My redmi note 4 is a great little phone

Actually a bit cheaper at the Xiaomi GLobal store on Aliexpress - aliexpress.com/sto…JS7
and the black version is only a few quid dearer there.

Missing B20 . Best Uk / Europe 4G Band . Always Negative for missing B20 . EE uses B20 as well. You don't know what perfection is when you don't even get full signal.

I have a MI6 black ceramic, I have two EE Sims in it and seems to get 4G everywhere. I even get it in my house which I never did with my LG G4.

Not sure about the blue and this is the version with the lower amount of memory. Paid 297 for mine so might be worth holding out for another deal.

Lower memory? RAM or ROM?

Could be either, but they recently released this version with 4GB RAM. The original has 6.
Got a mi mix 2 just in case band 20 was an issue, never actually use band 20 according to my band checker. I'm on plusnet mobile.
What are the security updates on this please? Better or worst than Samsung or Nokia

PayPal, you are protected and you can raise a dispute if you're not happy
Mi 6 or Honor 9? They both seem like similar phones in my opinion. Anyone had any issues with either of them?

Not sure what Gearbest did to their images but the colour is off.

This would be a product image from Mi site:

It's a dark shiny blue but Gearbest images look more like light matte purple/blue.

You can pay with PayPal on AliExpress, if the seller accepts it.
sale.aliexpress.com/__p…htm

Not all of the well known Xiaomi sellers accept it, but a PayPal logo is displayed if they do.

I've never noticed that, to be honest. I've messaged 2 or 3 sellers about it but they've all said they don't take it. Is it a new thing?

Not sure when it started but it's relatively new. I never noticed it either until someone pointed it out to me here< back in August when they said they bought from HK Goldway and paid with PayPal. Apparently PayPal themselves sent out emails about it. Misc post about it here< a few months ago.

Ah, right. That's prob why I've not noticed. Funnily enough, goldway were one of the sellers I messaged. Good to know some take it though, cheers.
OK< I have the 128gb version, The phone is fine, very responsive and fast, Video and game quality is good, Camera is good. On the bad side, the battery is woeful, far far too small and under capacity for the phone the other downside is Gearbest themselves....absolute pants
Any thoughts on Nubia Z17 ?
In an effort to get gearbest to sort issues some info for everyone.
I have bought lots of stuff from them and generally good, but when it goes wrong its a mountain to climb.

However recent android box went wrong. First remote then box. Gearbest customer service woes started.
Offered a couple of quid refund and no joy, or even understanding of English through gearbest ticket system, next to useless.
Escalated to paypal, eventually full offer of refund.
Eventually through paypal offered a UK return address for info (gearbest ticket system contradicted what they were saying through paypal)

Weiwen Luo
Address:
Woodgate Business Park,
Clapgate Lane,
Bartley Green
B32 3BZ
Birmingham
United Kingdom
Phone: 07780841791

They then repeatedly refused delivery from courier. One could interpret this as a device to 'pretend' to offer refund then refuse to accept the returned goods. No goods return=no refund to pay.
Only when I refused final paltry offer from through paypal, (after they had previously offered full refund) did the return that mysteriously had been repeatedly rejected, was now accepted, on the day Paypal ruled in my favour for full return of money.
coincidence?
doubtful.

So if everyone uses paypal for payment and escalation, keeps full records, they will compel gearbest to fully refund. If everyone does this then maybe gearbest will sort it properly.
Hope this helps.

Lol
I bought one of these early December - lovely looking phone but I find that about 40% of the time SMSs do not arrive - each Wednesday my banks send a statement SMS and only 40% of those would arrive. Ditto SMS from Santander or Tesco bank etc when you want to log on and they SMS a token - it was less than 50-50% they'd arrive and I'd have to request 2 or 3 times to get the token by SMS.

I had two SIMs in it, Vodafone and Sky and this happened with both SIMS.

On my old Sony Xperia Z5 the SMS's always came through.

Also could not get 4G on this with any of the SIMs - just H+ whereas with my Sony Z5 I get decent 4G with Vodaphone and Sky (I expected this, so not a complaint, just an observation)

I also ended up with a blank screen (crash, would not come alive again without a reset) so I asked to return due to this and the missing SMS issue - returns are a nightmare!
