This is a great phone however I'm waiting for the global version of the Redmi Note 5 Pro to be released.
Keep your powder dry for the Redmi Note 5 PRO would be my advice if stock android isn't a must have. Better camera/s, bigger screen, better SOC, faster RAM, way smaller bezels, bigger battery, face unlock etc. Won't be long now...

Can anybody tell me what global version means and what other versions …Can anybody tell me what global version means and what other versions there are? Thanks.


Generally, there are 2 versions. The China version, sometimes described as 'Original' is the one for the Chinese Market, and includes no Google software and instead, has Chinese equivalents. Also, lots of Chinese text. Further, the list of system languages is small, but does include English. The list of locations is very small, too, and may only include China. Global Version, should come with all the Google goodies, and very few, if any, Chinese apps. English is selectable as a language, and UK should be selectable as your location. Also, if the device is a Redmi device, it should include LTE band 20, which will ensure 4G compatibility with all UK networks. It should state Global Version on the box. If the device is a Mi device, it may not include Band 20, although the global version of this device does. Beware of devices described as a Global ROM version. These are usually Chinese versions that have had the Global ROM flashed before dispatch.

I switched to Mi A1 from iPhone 7. Mi A1 is much faster, elegant and battery lasts longer. I will surely recommend as I am never going back to iOS.

I've used the free shipping, ask the seller to put price low to avoid customs.

From my experience the best is LeEco Pro 3 Elite 4G 5.5 for about £115 the hard point of owning it is to flash a custom room pixel experience from xda.
You have a super pixel phone for 115 with a superior Google camera.

New version leeco pro 3 with dual camera can be had for 85, not as powerful processor and still no ois but I imagine camera is better.
How long did it take to flash your pro 3 and how does it do in low light now?

My bootloader was unlocked so I flash twrp.
Then pixel experience from Gabronog I was watching his development from the start and room is almost perfect.

Great phone, arrived in 2 weeks (non DHL delivery). I've had it a couple of months, no problems apart from it updating to Oreo which annoyingly removed the Scheduled Power On / Off feature

The LeEco looks interesting until you find that there's no 3.5mm socket, no SD card slot, no Gorrilla glass and no image stabilization. Great price though!
Everyone keeps saying to wake for the xiaomi Redmi Note 5 pro.

Is there any actual details about it?
Very good phone for the money. Heat added.

Same situation here with a mi note 3. Ordered a redmi 5 plus and that was delayed too was stuck in customs for over a week and ended up having to pay £13 to get it.

Still no sign of the Mi note 3 even though its been in the country for nearly 3 weeks.

Just so you guys know RM said that the tracking number refers to the consignment ( which contains many orders) it doesn't get logged onto the RM system until it clears customs. So if its been so long from reaching UK and still not cleared customs the likelihood is that is it has been lost or stolen.

I've opened a dispute with Ali express.

Anyone else finding Mi A1's minimum call volume during a call to be way too loud, and even worse (louder) when using a wired headset?

My redmi note 4 has had exactly the same thing happen to it. Arrived in the UK on the 7th, tracking says the same as yours does. I opened a dispute and got a refund yesterday.
Great phone. And the A1 willl be better than your old one. Why bother waiting for the Redmi Note 5 P, it's only a phone. And weeks before the 5b Pro or whatever model's small teething probs get sorted out, like any new phone. Then there will be the 6, and 7 and whatever coming down the pipe after that.

Had pre order for the Mi A1 with Gearbest, but its release from Xiaomi kept slipping back. No problems, and not missed a beat in the 4+ months I've had it. The major Android update to Oreo and think 3 other updates since I've had it.

Used to do all the Rom bit and tweaking, but life is too short to get the last or 5 or 10% out of them. Buy the A1, use it and forget about it.

And you can get a new phone every 18 months or so, say for the next 5 years, and STILL be in credit compared to what the iPhone crowd are paying :-)

google.co.uk/sea…F-8

It launched in India a few days ago and sold out in 3 mins (300,000 units) so it does exist . Realistically I don't know how long the Global Version will take to get on the Chinese e-commerce sites but my advice was to those who are happy to wait. It really has been getting superb reviews (there's a youtube review that demonstrates its dual rear cameras are actually, in certain instances, better that the iPhone X's dual rear cameras, for instance.
