If you can settle for less ram then this is currently the cheapest price you can get the Mi 9 for without compromising to the Mi 9 SE. Still going to be blazing fast with the SD 855

Super-fast Snapdragon™ 855
With two Turbo technologies for double the acceleration
System optimization makes fast performance even faster. MI Turbo's deep optimization guarantees that the phone will maintain ideal status for a year and half of use, and Game Turbo enables even more speed for extraordinary gaming experiences.

Charge faster with the world's first 20W wireless quick charging Wireless charging like you've never seen before.

6.39" AMOLED Dot drop Full Screen Display
90.7% screen-to-body ratio, 3.6mm narrow chin
A result of our relentless dedication to the evolution of the Full Screen Display, Mi 9 features an immersive experience made possible through customization: the in-screen sensor, miniaturized selfie camera, and ultrasonic proximity sensor allowed us to make the chin 40% more narrow, down to just 3.6mm.

All new AI triple camera - More than just another lens
A wider angle and a closer shot
The secret to amazing photography? Three essential lenses: wide angle, telephoto, and ultra wide-angle. Mi 9 has a lens with a view wider than typical lenses, and the camera is capable of correcting for distortion. It even supports macro photography, so there's no limits to your creativity.
Please note, any unauthorized modification to the operating system (such as rooting, flashing and jailbreaking etc) will automatically void our standard warranty.

Nope never did... Had to accept vouchers in the end to spend on their website for stuff I didn't want that I then had to sell on eBay at a loss to try and minimise my losses
Bought several things from eglobal never had an issue. Good/bad experience it’s all anecdotal.

Nothing to do with the extra storage. The 128gb version runs quite a but faster than the 64gb one.

why?? other hardware different?

Edit -- ahh assume cos the 128gb has 6gb ram...defo worth the extra 10 quid then
Edit Edit ---- I wonder ifthe 4gb ram for the 64gb version is incorrect listing - looks like they are both 6gb

Good review here
techadvisor.co.uk/rev…92/



Get your point on penny pinching but be madness not to get the 6gb 128gb version give the difference (if the other really is 4gb)
hotukdeals.com/dea…206

I still have slight trouble pulling the trigger when the value is this much (but I sooo want this)....c160 for a mid range Im fine taking the risk but c340 seems like a much bigger gamble without the warranty

Just don't.

eGlobal give the internet a bad name.

Had an absolute nightmare with them, when I ordered a Fitbit Versa off them for my wife. Thing just didn't work, and they just weren't interested. Utter sh*tebags the lot of them.

I don't think so apart from storage it is identical hardware. I have the 6gb 64gb and on antutu ver 7.2.0 it is scoring 372827 and on the ranking mine is at number 1 and number 2 is the Mi 9 6gb 128gb with a score of 371423 so as you see as near to identical you can get. I'd like to know where you got that info from or should i say miss info from. The one plus 7 with same snap 855 and 6gb 128gb not yet available has supposedly scored 375000 in testing again nothing in it

My point is: people mostly tend to post reviews when things go wrong.

Buying from FarEast-based stores isn't going to get a warranty anywhere as good as UK-based ones. Anyone who buys from the former without realising this prior to buying is only kidding themselves. In other words, they only have themselves to blame when things go wrong & shouldn't be criticising these FE-stores at every opportunity / in every thread.

Our favourite Mrswitch puts it well here - the reason why most of us who buy from the FE are willing to take these risks: hotukdeals.com/com…256

Heat from me op good price for a excellent phone. I bought mine in the March aliexpress anniversary sale I collected money off coupons in the week leading up to the sale worth $45 off the sale price so got it for $394 which converted to £299 at the time and no customs so great deal. The only negative with the phone was that the global versions comes with a 18 watt charger not the 27 watt one which apparently only comes with the China version. Still only 1 hour 15 mins to charge

Basically smart people (including Switch) have concluded in these threads: insure yourself via CC/PayPal against non-delivery (which gets mentioned a lot) AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY, via bank/phone insurance against factory defect/breakdowns in warranty period.

Because FE retailers, despite operating in UK market, don't have to provide EFFECTIVE warranty because they're special, unlike all other UK-based retailers. It's bad enough they're not paying UK VAT but that's a kind of legal loophole other companies use too, by setting warehouses in Continent/Channel Islands. I can take that, already a nice competitive advantage.

But that they're allowed by HM Government to trade without providing effective warranty is like operating in developed world with a 3rd world customer service, removing all consumer protection unless smart consumers insure themselves.

Much is expected of the UK consumer, but it's also true posters on HUKD are normally at pains to explain this situation in deal description. People have normally been warned.

I don't think it's fair, however, to blame them when things go wrong. I think they deserve better.

I don't like it, but it is as it is.

99iainb, who keeps posting his negative experience in many EGC deals, did pay with PayPal but the warranty claim was past PayPal's 180-day window.

As Mrswitch implied, people who go for these at considerable discounts are willing to forego any warranty. Therefore they shouldn't feel hard done by when it doesn't work out - after all, they knew what they were getting into before purchasing. They should chalk it up to experience & move on.

My view is, British government (putting pressure on internet providers) should take a much more hands-on stance on cyberspace and stop some companies from trading in U.K. digital market, due to tax avoidance + consumer protection issues
