Good to see Amazon drop a few quid, but still some disparity from other readily available routes.
Nothing near it in this price range from UK retailer. Has to be hot.
Amazon doing their bit to help stop the rip off prices of other UK suppliers*. More power to their elbow. Heat added.

One example? CPW selling the 32GB version for 179 bloody quid!

Yes, Android One so basically stock android with guaranteed updates for, I think, 2 years? Genuinely believe this will be by a fair margin Xiaomi's best selling phone in the UK. Looks like amazon agree lol...

How much does having stock Android and guaranteed updates matter vs a skin and a bit bigger screen?

The price is £135 when added to the basket.
Will the dual SIM accept two 3 Mobile SIM cards? The reason I ask is some other dual SIM phone the 2nd SIM can only do 2G if the 1st SIM is using 3G or LTE.

Good spot. Proof that Amazon is shaking up the Xiaomi market here! CPW now matching Amazon for the 32GB version. Can only be good news for customers...

Having stock android is one of the reasons on leaning to this phone, obviously note has a better processor, bigger screen and better front camera by the looks of it but not by much.

Not so good for Gearbest et al, as the difference in price reduces combined with customer service and next day delivery makes going direct less favourable. I just deleted a Gearbest email where Xiaomi items were more expensive than Amazon...

Agreed. That's commerce for you. I have to say though without Amazon getting involved i don't think we would be having this conversation. They are clearly driving Xiaomi prices down in the UK. Good on them...

Two 4G networks cannot be used simultaneously. When using two SIM cards, 4G support is only available for one card at a time
Heat added. This is still £199 on the Xiaomi UK store!
Buy now or wait till Black Friday?

My sons redmi note 5 has an option for dual 4g, don't know if this is the same

I have the mi A1 which is likely the same. Accepts 4g signals off both cards but you have to define which SIM to get data from, it's not dual I believe. Takes 30 secs to 1 minute to switch between Sims.

Any NFC on these? CPW says UK version has it but Amazon doesn't say yes or no. I know international version doesn't.

I don't think it has NFC
This will help drive he prices of them down in general, heat
I know the Honor 8x costs more, but would this be a better?
for £25 less the 3gb, work paying £25 for 1gb extra i suppose

Alas it is not the same on the A2 lite. Second sim can't use 4G if the first is using it. Good sellers will clarify this in advance.

I had the same confusion and finally settled with this because of android one and the extra memory slot
What is the "item under review" notice on Amazon all about?

I suspect because not all of the options are the official UK version. The gold model is on 1-2 months delivery time and must be an import. The blue one isn't officially available in the UK. I would suggest that potentially only the black one if any at all may be the official UK version...

£179 on Carphone with £10 off through Topcashback = £169 for this in Black or £179 for Black or Gold at John Lewis with their 2-year warranty.
Used eglobalcentraluk for mine last week, got the phone in 5 days from with in the UK !. £133.

Great phone had mine since launch. I think this is a great buy along with the Xiaomi Note 5 (if you don't mind bigger phones) at around the £150-£180 mark.

In my book...

Pros -
Android One / Pure Android.
Generally Very Smooth Performance (fine for most except maybe intense users / gamers, but I don't play games much in my phone).

IR Blaster.

SD Card.

Headphone Socket.

LOUD Loud Speaker.

Relatively Compact Size (I can just about use it one handed / fit in a shirt pocket, unlike many phones these days)

Camera is decent to me (I am not a big camera guy though, but seems close to the Pocophone in tests I have seen)

Rapid Charging on Micro USB. I am happy sticking with Micro USB a while longer, especially when the phone takes just two hours to fully charge.

Battery Life is Fantastic.

I think its battery life may be the best amongst Xiaomi phones with its combination of its 625 processor, android one and 4000mah battery.




Cons -

Size.I wish there was a still smaller body as I like smaller phones, but like I wrote above its relatively Compact these days.

Lack of proper FM Radio. There is no proper way to use it (Xiaomi Android One Phones do not seem to allow it, even though it has the chip). There is a work around using Qmmi settings, but not really very usable.

625 processor. Been fine for me, but is a quite old processor now.

Case in the box. Does not have a protective lip on it (so can not put face done on surfaces). Shame as it is decent and light, but I recommend getting one from Amazon that does protect the screen somewhat.
Would John Lewis match this and then get 2 year warranty?

Do they ever match Amazon? I thought it was only competitors with retail stores.
Does it have face unlock feature?
179 now
Can anyone please recommend a case and screen protector? Been trawling through Amazon and lots of mixed reviews on various ones. Just wondered if anyone had this phone already and what they got for it.
I hear installing the Google camera app from the pixel improves low light camera performance massively. Anyone done it and can confirm, if so, any reliable instructions for installation.
