Edit: This phone is not in stock according to a buyer here - you will likely need to wait a few weeks for it.

I posted a deal for this phone just recently at AliExpress, and as expected eGlobalCentralUK now have it in stock too.

You don't get hit by additional customs charges with these guys, but the usual warranty fun applies.

Buy with a credit card if you can, or at least PayPal just in case.

Personally I've bought three items from these guys with no issues, all delivered within a week.

Anyway...the phone - it's a smaller 19:9 style handset, so longer rather than wider. Even longer than other tall phones as it has a notch.

Specs are decent - full hd+ IPS screen, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, micro SD slot, Snapdragon 625 which is still nippy (certainly for this price range). Retro micro USB port. Android One based on Oreo 8.1. Has dual cameras for fake bokeh portraits.

Band 20!

Neat. Will get one for my wife sometime to replace her iPhone 6s.

Don't forget Topcashback / Quidco!

Is the camera decent enough on this? Wife's Moto G3 has just about packed in and looking for an upgrade. Was looking at the Redmi 5 plus last week too.
If anyone can't get the link to work, navigate their site by Mobiles->Brands->Xiaomi and order by Newest.

Camera is better than Redmi 5 Plus - rear camera is if similar spec to that of the iPhone 6s - not bad at all, but not as good as the Redmi Note 5 Global version (and the Note 5 is bigger and faster too for less wonga!).

This phone if for those who want Android One in a smaller package.
Not read much about the Lite version, but the Mi A2 is getting rave reviews about the camera, in a price/ratio context and gives many flagship phones a good race.
Just a shame neither have NFC, do use to this feature now.
Unless you are desperate not to have miui, the redmi note 5 I think is better in almost every way. But good price for the A2 lite.

Yeah some of the sample images linked to in this review of the the full fat Mi A2 are pretty amazing, the camera looks awesome!

But saying that, this is a great deal for the Lite model

Agree, I genuinely wanted a smaller phone, but on handling a Redmi Note 5 the other day, my head was turned. The camera and screen are ace, and the thing flies along!

Will probably put Lineage OS on it for that proper Android feel (plus you can adjust screen colours and saturation etc.).
BTW, apologies to the mods, I must have edited this deal about 5 times now. I'm blaming my old phone. Come on eGlobal, bring me my Redmi Note 5!!!

Is this better than an old Samsung s7 ? I know not a lot about phones lol.. lost my s7 on holiday and just wanted to spend not more than about this on a half decent better value chinese product/brand... or honor .... how does this weigh up against s7?

Also can any of you super sharp eyed wheeler dealers identify any other good phones on here or anywhere for about 150-200 that is equal or better than my old s7? Or is this just wishful thinking lol ... Big Thanks!
I quite like MIUI, lots of personalisation options. Stock android can get boring! Hey but some like stock Android, fair enough. My experieince of Eglobal was good. My order of the Redmi Note 5 last week was recieved in about 3 working days. Using a Redmi 5 at the moment which is brilliant. Had a Xiaomi Mi A1 which was good but battery life was weaker than Redmi 5. Also like the taller screen aspect!

The Redmi Note 5 (Snapdragon 636) has better video performance than the S7 from what I remember in reviews - particularly with regards image stabilisation. Perhaps not as good at normal photography - but v.v.good for the money. I've been using mine for a few weeks now, and it's excellent. Highly recommended. The 3GB/32GB model tends to be around £120 or so from China. It's a better phone than this A2 by a good stretch
Isn't the Mi a1 better than this in many ways.
I thought eglobal were a chinese company? Won't they take like a month to deliver the phone?
This or the mi a1 or the a2?

If a new s7 would pop up at HUKD priced at 200 notes it would get scorching hot. That's because modern phones at this price point are still struggling to reach that level of performance +low light photo quality (most of today's phones are able to take good day light photos). £200 can buy you some really decent devices, though.

not sure, but Mi A1 has a smaller battery, smaller screen and has the same processor. Might have to order this Mi A2 lite to try out!
Camera might be better on Mi A1
Oh Mi A1 also has a USB C charging port whilst this I think has the older micro usb port.

It is a chinese company but apparently Eglobal have stock in UK so quicker postage. My Redmi Note 5 came in 3 working days.

Redmi Note 5 with 64GB storage and 4GB RAM is a good buy as it has a the newer Snapdragon 636 CPU which is fast. Can be purchased from Eglobal for about £159.99 Not sure about the camera though.

Thanks sam and tech25. Both phones are good, but the redmis camera is a let down.

I would still go with the Redmi Note 5. The only positive about buying the Moto phones is that they come with a UK warranty. Xiaomi phones do not really have a UK warranty.

Just checked my tracking number from eglobal for my a2 lite 4gb it will be with me tomorrow

Looks like it shipped from the UK.

Coming via UPS

Redmi Note 5 has better battery life and is slightly cheaper than A2.
A2 is quite similar in many aspects. However, battery is smaller.
A2 runs stock android, so will be a more familiar/standardised user interface.
A2 also has the Snapdragon 660 processor which is technically superior to the 636.
However, I understand they are very similar speed in everyday performance....... Both likely to feel a bit quicker than the S7 you had previously. Both have solid cameras and great build quality.

Xiaomi do a plethora of other phones, but these are probably two of the best taking it to account the price.

As I understand, Xiaomi do not make profit from their phones, as they are still trying to promote their brand internationally. Mobile phones is an area when profit is not their objective. For that reason, Xiaomi phones are always great value!

The rear camera on the Redmi Note 5 is excellent, it's a slight variation on the model used in the Samsung Galaxy S7 / Edge but with a second camera for portrait mode. It's miles better than the one in the Note 4 - really decent in low light too.

The Redmi Note 5 really shocked me, I can't think of a phone with better features at this price point right now, particularly if you go for the £127.00 3GB/32GB version.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has a good camera and a new one can be purchased for about £200 ish on eBay! The sim free version of the S7 has the Android Oreo update but will probably not receive any updates after that.

May I suggest S7 Edge, Galaxy Note 5 or LG G6. You can get all of these new or new condition from Ebay.
I did pick up a new S7 for £175 from Ebay (techsave2006) a few months ago. You may want something different though.

One thing to note...the A2 does not have a headphone jack or an SD card slot. Which is a massive omission (especially when you can regularly get 128GB cards for around £25!)
