Or just grab the full xiaomi eu rom released a few hours ago, just put in on my polaris (mi mix 2s) and its even more superfly!

Global ROM?
I'd rather pay more for a UK seller with a year warranty. To the tune of say £50

Xiaomi has never released a Max 3 6/128 with a global rom, that model was only for China market.

The info on XDA says that the sellers are (somehow) forcing a 'fake global rom' onto the phone and that can create problems if you try to update using OTA.

Exactly yeah, pretty much try and avoid global rom most of the times, unless sold by the manufacturer themselves, and I mean official stores/channels.

Having said that, HK Goldway are a pretty decent seller.

Redmi note 6

The 64 GB version for 119 or possibly 114 when using their app. Upgrade over Nokia 5 in almost every way. Processor ( same as mi max 3), gaming capabilities, battery life, camera. No NFC on Redmi compared to Nokia 5 but he probably wouldn't use it anyway. Great value for your money.

Great thx mate
Great price, I used a Max2 until this week, Global rom obviously and had updates and no issues.

Would have gone for this but got myself a Mix3 this week.
Waiting for the mi9 to come down below 300

I bought from AliExpress 6gb 128gb blue colour with pre installed global ROM and received OTA update last night and installed without any issue to miui 10.3. the performance is flawless.
Heat, good price for a lot of phone
Thanks OP. Anything Xiaomi is quality. I have original mi max and it is a great phone except in sunlight it is difficult to see the screen or to take photos. It is a shame they announced they are not bringing out version 4. This is a great price for version 3 with 128gb. Question is do I bite?

So I understand clearly as I'm not a tech person... if I brought this, I would need to unlack/hack/flash it in order for it to work properly within UK?

It probably depends on the seller, The likes HK Goldway I'd trust personally, but there are some dodgy ones on there, with little to zero feedback etc.
