Probably cheaper on previous other posts, but couldn't get some voucher codes that worked or deal probably expired.
Trying to find the deal again, the cheapest so far that I could find is at £168.31.
Please feel free to share if there's better deal out there. Thanks!

TCB @ 5.05%

Cheaper on Geekbuying with code KIMOVILA1 ? Reason I'm not sure is you need to be logged in to apply the code and I'm not registered with them and CBA to register lol.

Wish I didn't cancel my order at Banggood. But either way... i will still be waiting for they to dispatch it anyway.

The bangood ones are starting to arrive.My neighbor received his yesterday and has been around showing it of delightedly.Hope it puts a smile on the waiting crowd

Finally came in stock at banggood and they dispatched my order playing on 20th yesterday. Been a long wait. Mainly think was that a pre-order then a Chinese holiday

few pence cheaper via geekbuying using code: KIMOVILA1

But DX with 5.05% cashback (TCB) could made it under £160.

Ordered mine from AliExpress for about £10more.. delivered in 2 weeks.

Voted hot

If you click VR there is a code for 5% off but looks like you need to register.
Any advantages of this model over Note 4?
Is customs duty likely too?

Shame they don't have NFC

The differences I can see is stock Android v MIUI it will get Android 8.0 by the end of 2017 and it will get Android 9.0. Also duel camera compared to single camera on the RN4.

Good prices, but I've been waiting for a phone to be dispatched from my order on the 2nd!!!!

Thanks I am considering this model because a decent camera is important to me. Lack of NFC matters not a jot to me.
I'm visiting HK in the near future and may wait and buy one in store.
Camera seems to be the only weakness on Note 4 so around £30 extra for better camera + other advantages seems worth it.

Add to that loader speaker, Corning Gorilla glass protection, 2 out of 3 bench mark scores have the Mi A1 better performance. Plus has type c connector, I've heard its not fast charging like in in 1/2 hr but im assuming its faster than normal usb connection.?
The main advantage of note 4 is the battery 4100 vs 3080mAh. Im not concerened with the lower battery as on my phone i use app JuiceDefender Ultimate , really improves my battery duration

Not convinced these apps work without inevitable trade-offs TBH. Fact is, the battery in this is much smaller than that in the RN4, the display and SOC are essentially the same on both phones so the RN4 will likely have much better battery life and no need of any of the so-called battery saver apps. Battery life on the RN4 is one of its biggest pluses. Plus the A1 is quite a bit 'taller' than the RN4 even though the screen size is identical. I'm torn on this one...

Is this the one with stock Android?

Yes stock Android 7.1.2 with a few Xiaomi apps that can be uninstalled, it will be updated to Android 8.0 & 9.0.

Think the black versions took longer to come into stock.

I was too and decided to go for the A1, i traded the battery life for a andriodone phone, and dual cam.

anyone know of a genuine reliable seller on Aliexpress whom I can get this phone from? ive ordered a redmi 4 for the mrs but im sold on this one. stock android, really good reviews.

BB, I look to you for my xioami advice

what you reckon with the A1? ive ordered a RN4 for the Mrs, im tempted by this one. if you buy from AE, which seller do you recommend? is the MI Online store the genuine store or someone pretending to be them?

its either that or the RN4 though the pure android experience plus very good reviews plus updates swaying to this one.
