Heat, but I'm cautious of gearbest

Love mine, came fine from GearBest.

Whats the camera like?

Looking for a sub 200 android with a decent camera. Was thinking Xiaomi MI A1?

Any help would be apprecaited.

How does it compare to Samsung S6? Please,
Any input would be appreciated

Good phone. Got mine from GearBest... Well an empty box anyway.

Certain 4G bands, check which bands your network provider uses and compare to the specs

Also make sure you weren't looking at reviews for the Chinese version, this is the GLOBAL version which supports more bands

It doesn't. In this case, 'global' just refers to the global rom. The LTE bands are the same.

Where is this list from?

Damn was hoping it wouldn't go below my purchase price before it arrived with me I got mine for £165 I think, excellent price if you look up any reviews for this device the two main selling points are battery life and media consumption.

Is this worth upgrading from a mi max 1? Specs don't really show a big improvement...

OK. Wondered of it was an official list. We'll just have to see.

Can an owner confirm whether or not this has NFC please?

I do not own one atm but from what reviews I've watched there is nfc present

have been getting notifications from them (mi) about whats coming.
so should be good with 4x unless everyone is getting the notifications?!

There is no NFC.

It does, but not band 20, which is what O2 uses.

I've just been checking the reviews of this phone and it sounds great, but no band 20 ruins it for me, especially with O2's already slow data speeds.

That's my take on the V2 over the original, I can't see any reason to replace my Max with the V2. Dual speakers are a nice touch, had they improved the camera I'd have ordered one already.

P.s. my original Mi Max is still the best phone I've owned, the spec suits me almost perfectly.

32gb mi max owner best phone iv ever had. Now still can get 170+ on ebay so could update to this for free

Heat added - even though I didnt buy this one. I went for one on Geekbuying in their Italian warehouse. Im in Spain and hopefully it really will be the 1 - 2 business days they say. As long as it arrives here by the weekend I am ok.

Ordered a 2 while waiting on a new screen for my mi max 1 which I imagine will be replacing the max 2 once fixed. I couldn't see any point in upgrading the best phone I've had and using a Lenovo P2 isn't doing anything for me, I miss the big screen too much. While NFC is handy it's the max screen I need. How do people cope with a 5.5" screen?

No B20 best UK/ Europe 4g band. Big Negative

Will this work on the 3 network at 4G?

I suspect the only one on this list to definitely get the update is Mi A1 !

I was wondering the same thing.
I want a big phone at a reasonable price.

Yes, Im on the three network and use this phone. Bought it when it was released in Hong Kong back in the summer.

Get some brain boy. Wont hurt in the long run. Lower bands like 800 are better for mobile signal.

Where did you order your replacement screen from? I managed to drop mine this morning and there's a very fine crack appeared, can't really see the crack but can feel it with s fingernail. I've looked at some of the feedback for some of the replacement screens on AliExpress and can't see any genuine replacement screens and some of the feedback highlights issues with the replacement screens (missing adhesive, etc).

First one was Lcd and digitiser from dragon-tt.com/xx.…346 though I caught my phone on holiday and seem to have damaged it so looking for another. I ordered a replacement with frame here m.aliexpress.com/ite…Jc1 though I am awaiting a refund as they didn't have black (been 2 weeks waiting) so currently without. The dragon unit is xiaomi Lcd and oem digitizer though didn't bond fully and had poor button illumination.
I 'should' buy this... dragon-tt.com/xx.…id=6000 original framed Lcd digitiser though it's $85 delivered. I'm currently pondering what to buy (you've seen it's a minefield) though I've a max 2 and mix 2 on order.
