Check the returns procedure, always take out the insurance option, pay by credit card, or if not that at least PayPal, expect a long wait, expect no support or warranty with grey import purchases, these phones are cheap for a reason.

If you aren't OK with spending this money on this type of site then please don't, there may be extra charges and long waits as well. Always a risk with these kinds of purchases, so do think thoroughly before diving in.

Pay by credit card or PayPal, and ideally have an bank account that covers warranty on Grey imports

Like I say, I really wouldn't go through with this purchase, unless you are 100% certain you can accept there may be issues.

Let me know if you experience issues, and I'll expire ASAP.

Very small, I never have, just make sure you pay by credit card, and if not PayPal, so your covered in case something goes wrong.

Sorry, just updated with discount codeGBBFYYY01


Ok cool thanks

Ps with the Insurance does that cover you with the customs that they will refund you if you get caught for customs. I know I seen it before on one of these type of sites.

No, it covers you if it gets lost etc, they'll send you another one.

The fact you have to even say this should stop the retailer being allowed on here!

Yeah, when I read that I get a bit concerned.
Do you thing it is better to get the note 7 from Amazon posted earlier for £144?
I am sorry I am new in here so asking to be sure what to do. Thank you all.

If you don't feel confident with buying from here, then I'd suggest you don't, buy from the uk (the note 7 is a very good choice) and that comes with 2 year warranty, and UK support.

Mine have never been any more than 12 days. Though I'd give them a bit of leeway as I imagine they are running behind like most China sites this time of year.
Am I missing something or has it gone up now?
dam I order the Note 8 pro a couple of days ago for my self. Wish I had waited a while longer and would of got this. It looks fantastic for the price!!

Hi Switchy, appreciate your info. I've ordered before from Gearbest, but not this value. Would you pay the extra for insurance, my inclination is to not pay for it. I can transfer warranty to Xiaomi UK can't I?

Is the presumption that if loss or damage is verified, they won't sort without insurance, or just more effort? Also paypal is best method if no credit card?
Coming to £160 for me!

That's what they promise yeah, I'd be a fool to tell you not to take it, so I'll leave that with you.

Warranty won't apply in the UK if bought from gearbest either, and yeah, always pay by PayPal if credit card isn't available
Decided to bite the bullet. Took a punt on this. Went through paypal with final cost after conversion as £173. I skipped paying the extra guaranteed shipping because I'm cheap and like to live dangerously. If it comes before xmas wife will be happy. If not...may have to go elsewhere on xmas day MrSwitch! ;o)

I've been looking at various and I think for the money this is unbeatable and ticks all the boxes I want.

Big battery
fast enough charging
AMOLED screen
usb type c new type
headphone jack
band 20
6gb/128gb
looks good
fairly new with good enough cpu and camera specs

I don't think anything exists at this price point for the same (that still has ALL the above)

Good luck gents, I'm sure all will be good.
I notice a few of the reviews saying they've had to pay duty. So fingers crossed they are the unlucky ones.
It goes down to $225 for me, that makes it £174 if I use google to do the exchange rate.

Has the price gone up?
How's this compared against redmi note phones?

Ah I missed that. I only wish it was this price and shipped from the EU. The risk of duty tax and other processing charges by DHL/Royal Mail worries me

I enjoy it funnily enough, cheers mate
trying to get it using the code, not working :/ any ideas?
Hot damn that's a sweet price. Wanted a mi 9 se really for the small size, but this is basically same phone with bigger screen and better battery.
Though it's not that much better than note 8 unless you really want AMOLED (I much prefer LCD over the long run, AMOLEDs look better for about a year until they turn yellow or burn in, then they look like crap). Is there any other difference between mi9lite and note8?
Lol gearbeast has 16 different Xiaomi phones on offer. All except the mi 9se basically. Gits.
