Awesome deal for a phone with 855 CPU and the Sony IMX586 camera

EDIT: Also AMOLED screen and wireless charging too
Edited by: "Neostar" 22nd Aug
Anything for the 128GB version? Thanks.
Any chance a UK site might sell this for close to £300 before it becomes obsolete?

IMX586 almost identical to 582 of last year's Mi flagships. It's not a top of the range camera package, I believe Huawei/Honor can squeeze more out of same sensor with their AI smarts.

However, getting to this price the overall smartphone seems very good value to me, shame about 64GB

How about for £350?I feel somehow that Mrs Witch can influence the price of Xiaomi phones.
Come on Witchy, use those witch powers and get me this phone for £350 forom a UK seller!

Check DXOmark review for this phone. Its right up there and for the price can't be beaten.

DXOmark reading has to be taken with pinch of salt, I agree value at this price approaching unbeatable status

I'd recommend paying the extra for the 128gb version as the memory isnt expandable, and 4k videos can eat up a lot of space. I upgradred from a S7 active to this and I've been very happy with it so far.

I've purchased phones from Ali Express on 3 occasions without any problems.
They were all cheap Redmi phones for £100 to £130 each.

I would however draw the line at any purchase in excess of about £150 from Chinese sellers.
Hence I'd rather pay a bit extra and have the safety net of a warranty and/or customer service.

That said, I'm reasonably sure section 75 would cover the purchase hmmm....

I struggle with the size of videos. Even a 720p recording seems to take up huge storage. What do you do when you eventually upload the video to your computer or your online storage? do you compress it somehow or...?
What about if you want to share that video, surely it would be awkward to share a something that is several gigs?

My Mi 9 just arrived from GearBest and, so far, I'm happy with it apart from one problem. I have my Galaxy Watch connected to it but if I close the Gear Wearable app, it disconnects so I have to have it running all the time. On my old S8, I used to be able to close all apps and the Galaxy Watch would still be connected. I've turned off the battery saver restrictions on the Wearable app, the Galaxy Watch plugin and Samsung Accessory plugin but it still disconnects. Has anyone had the same problem and found a fix?
Maybe I should post this as a separate question elsewhere on this site, but hoping for a quick answer on this thread:

I see Gearbest don't accept Amex. They do accept paypal. I can use Amex as the underlying card when paying through Paypal.
So far so good.
My actual question is regarding section 75 protection. Does that go out the window?
Do you get any form of protection from a credit card company when going through Paypal to one of these Chinese sellers?

Thanks.
I think the ultimate question would be Mi9 or Mi9T Pro?

No, I've seen this asked before, and the plain answer was no, PayPal protection you're covered with in that instance.

They're separate lines of protection

PayPal works very well to ensure item is received by buyer, in 'as described' state

CC protection also excellent. To counter lack of effective seller warranty, best is phone insurance through bank/building society account

Wait I thought the mi 9t and mi 9t pro were the same phone? i.e. the k20 pro?

Bloody Xiaomi and their fifty different variations on every model of phone.

Not sure I understood that.
Are you saying that PayPal will cover me sufficiently?
And that credit card section 75 won't be applicable?

It's not that difficult, 9T has SD 730 - great phone

Different design too, bigger battery - no Xiaomi buff here, some of the models only sold in China/India, sometimes under different names

(If you have any questions just ask @dreadzone101 for all things Xiaomi)

I can't get my head round all the different variations.

Shame that I need 2 Sims and sdxc
Is the pro worth the £50-100 more?

This is actually better specced in some areas than the 9t pro.

It is a pretty incredible piece of kit for the price. I think I'm tempted by the notchless design of the pro more than anything else, more because of how 'modern' it looks
