Ordered one several weeks ago at this price point. Arrived after 10 days. Currently using. Surprised that it had the international ROM. Happy with purchase.

Lineage OS is available for this, quite tempted.

No B20. Negative

No NFC either and using two SIMs along with micro SD is tricky too though neither of these issues stop it from being a fantastic phone with incredible battery life.

V2s coming soon

Speculations that 19th April launch, interesting. Not sure if worth holding out and waiting to see if this will drop more as a result. Or spend extra to get version 2.

Anyone wanting this for Lineage please be aware;

Lineage is only available for the 3G/32GB Snapdragon 650 model, model name "Hydrogen".

This is model name "Helium", ROM development is sparse on XDA for this, can only see 1 Helium rom with decent activity.

If you're keeping it for MIUI then it's much better than the SD 650 version, and imo it's a really nice phone overall. MIUI is a top UI.

​It's been a while since I've seen those informative comments popping up. Err, sorry, "that" informative comment. It was always something I could rely on

Not entirely sure if you're saying you're selling your old 3/64gb model or the newly arrived 4/128gb model?

Q? The old model has B20, but 4/128gb doesn't and they both have IR blaster?

Both available for sale (prefer to sell the 3/64gb). No mi max have B20, all have ir blaster.

miui global 7.3


I meant specifically, mine came with a vendor rom, now replaced with genuine xiaomi.

mine came with the official xiaomi stable global MIUI 7.3.14.0.0

cannot update yet to miui 8.2

That's not official. It's a vendor ROM. Official stable ROMs have a 4-digit x.x.x.x format build number and will get OTA updates. Global ROMs have 'MI' in the letter code. Your ROM is 5-digit and according to this thread is letter code MBDCNDE. The 'CN' means it is a custom Global, created from the China ROM and not the official Global. Latest Official ROM here.

I'd be tempted to download and install the global rom from the Xiaomi support website, banggood have been known to muck about with the roms. My 32 GB MI Max is on 8.2.4 and updates via ota fine, mine came from a seller on aliexpress with good feedback and a guarantee that it was the factory installed global rom and the phone would be delivered as sealed in the factory.
Personally I wouldn't buy from banggood because they have this reputation.
