No idea about customs and stuff.. mmm'ing and aahh'ing here.

TCB says 10% which would make it not far off the gearbest 1 minute sale.

Just to let you know the phone does not support 800Mhz (B20) so no 4G on O2 sadly.

Heat just for dissing the infamous gearbest sale

71% off, really?

Initial price is clearly a joke, but sale price is pretty solid if it's all legit.

Just ordered. Was keeping an eye out for deals on the Mi 6, hope the TCB tracks!

Well, since someone else trusted them enough to pull the trigger, I have too

Good luck to us on customs and TCB!

LITB, please stay away. Clear con. Read my other reviews about them.

So it seems like most of the chinese import sites they have some dodgy reviews (as do UK companies) - Though have looked through a bunch of threads on this website of lightinabox deals and people have received their goods... So I would say if anything they could be pretty crappy, but not a clear con. I ordered through Paypal which hopefully offers some protection.

Get the 128gb version of the Mi6 glass back global ROM. geekbuying.com/ite…ale

Use code GEEKBUY20 to get this price and potentially 4.4% TCB (need to be logged on for code to work). Use code GEEKBUY50 for a better discount if buying over $500 (ie 2 handsets). I've found codes to work on and off so if you get an error saying the use limit has been reached, try again in 30 minutes, they seem to be supplementing every time.

Best to pay directly by credit card for anything over £100 to get section 75 protection. The site wouldn't let me pay directly by CC yesterday and CSR weren't very helpful so ended up paying through PayPal in $ with CC conversion at Visa rate. Mestecard's rate is better if you have a no-fee CC with them.

Deal countdown for the phone says it expires at 8am GMT.

As for the phone, dirt cheap flagship stuff if you're willing to take the customs risk and wait for delivery (slow air mail recommended). I'll post some reviews in the comments. No Band 20 (4G: FDD-LTE: B1/B3/B5/B7/B8, TDD-LTE:B38/B39/B40/B41)

Good price but don't have the patience to wait for delivery

I understand that 4G won't work on O2 due to the lack of support for Band 20 (800Mhz).

Question. Does anyone know how the lack of B20 on a phone can affect reception and 4G download speeds on the networks that use two bands. I have a feeling the indoor reception should be affected but I have never tested this. Also, I am not sure if both bands cover the same area on those networks.

I cannot find geekbuying on topcashback site. am i missing anything ?

Ok! Thanks for offering to help. Can you point to any negative reviews on your website? My negative review was repeatedly removed by LITB.

Yes! The items were crappy. When I gave negative reviews they were removing it everytime. That's the con.
