Xiaomi Mi Max 2 64GB Gold for £229.15 @ GeekBuying

Found 29th May 2017
64GB ROM and 4GB RAM option for £229.15. Global version is £239.25.

This is for you guys who prefer big phones. Owned the original, excellent smartphone with an excellent battery life, which has been improved further with this model.

Full metal build, Android N, 1080p 6.44" screen, power efficient processor, huge 5000mah< battery capacity, Type C quick charge 3.0, NFC (yay!!), and an IR blaster.

Decent specs and price when you consider that the phone was announced just a week ago, and that the original is still going for close to £200.00.

i believe thatother than battery original has better spec than this one and no b20 in global version
I'm interested - I have a history of Samsung Galaxy handsets, including the Note 2 and for 2+ years a Note 4, model SM-N910F. I'd like a bigger screen, but what will I likely miss or get annoyed with using the Xiaomi Max Gold 4/64 Global version? I don't play games on my handset, and use it mostly as an audio-book player, for browsing, SatNav, video playback, SMS/WhatsApp and voice calls.

My service provider until March 2018 is Vodafone, with 20GB data, unlimited text and voice. Any comments from those who have used the Xiaomi, particularly after using Samsung Galaxy handsets would be most welcome.

​You won't even get decent reception in this phone. No need to compare with top range galaxy class phones.

I moved from a Galaxy Note 3 to a Mi Max (original with Snapdragon 652) and wouldn't buy another Samsung. As for missing Samsung features, I didn't use many Samsung features with exception to the pen and I manage happily without.
The Mi Max 2 uses the Snapdragon 625 which is slightly inferior though only in some areas and is more efficient so battery performance is better(though the original max is known for excellent battery performance).
I get 4G on 3 mobile though I can't comment on Vodafone 4G reception other than to say ignore the troll. I'm sure someone will confirm. Willmyphonework.net may assist.
Ive checked a number of sources and now the specs have been announced there is NO NFC.

That was the only reason I was considering the 'upgrade', guess I'll be keeping my Mi Max '1'(not that it's a problem).

I hope your basing this off actual first hand usage and not an innate dislike for Chinese phones.

I personally did have this phone for months, upgraded to the mi mix last month, reception was never an issue and for the money it was one of the best phones i ever had, i am with three btw
No offence but you can live in your fools paradise. Three 4G reception is already so poor in London due to lack of bandwidth and lots of customers to share the limited bandwidth. I use B20 4G band most times in London so know it is in widespread use. Buying a phone missing UK bands is really foolish in my opinion but there are so many people who live in China and post here pretending to be UK citizens so I don't care anymore.
sam your delusional
I agree , Three 4G reception in London is poor,can't wait for my contract to end
I've settled on buying the Mi Max 2 as it fits my needs precisely. However I'm a bit baffled about which one to get: ie. do I go for Global ROM or international version or is there another one ? I'm not concerned about the lack of band 20 as I'm on EE.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
