Great price for the very large Mi Max phone from Xiaomi, this is the 4Gb version not the 3Gb listed before.
Believe it is a flash deal so be quick

i'm using this at the moment, obviously the phone snobs laugh & poke fun at the size but guess who doesn't have to charge their phone every half a day?
worth every penny in my opinion

"HELLO! NO, I'M ON THE TRAIN!!!!"
You will need to get a customised trouser with very large pockets before getting this phone
i have a few cases if anyone's interested

wouldn't have one personally but spotted it while browsing the banggood website seeing if my Mi5s had been dispatched.
I have the 32gb version and i love it, yeah its an absolute monster in size but im used to it now and really do love this phone. I get 4g on Three in my area too

All over mobiles feel ridiculously small now compared to this phone, I don't think I can ever down size now though.
I have this phone too. Typing on it right now. Reliable and great specs for the price. Better than the iPhone over priced sh**. You get use to the size very quickly and you don't need extra special pockets.
Could be that this will be banned from carry on luggage under new flight security criteria.

Newspaper reports today say that could be widened to include all flights - worth bearing in mind.
just had a quick check, even cheaper than buying in China (~£213@tmall.com)
i have this Phone on the three network not had any problems yet, do have to use both hands when using

​Ah, right. I'd not read that.
Negative. Missing B20. Three uses B20 as well so this is a gamble with unreliable reception.
I have the 64GB SD652 Mi Max, great phone with fantastic battery life. Fits in my pockets though remember to remove before sitting.
I get 4G on 3, not that there's any issues with 3G speeds!

Damn you OP. £196.86 ($ rate showing on Halifax Clarity) and £12.99 pending with TCB.
Anyone looking for a mint 3GB /64GB Mi Max with Snapdragon 652?

​My mate has this phone on 02. No 4g but fine with 3g. He's not missed the benefit of 4g he says. I did read you can activate the band 20 on this phone if you root and flash with something. That's what I read,don't know if true

Damon didn't read post properly and thought this was the mi mix
My 2nd Mi Max, 1st one had scrolling problems in apps such as the google calendar app when swiping right to left and went on Mi forums and many others were in the same boat awaiting a fix and sadly this has the same fault.

A good phone otherwise, got the 4gb/128gb for £202 from Banggood so this price is even better thanks OP
Flash sale finished, now £218.56.
If it was 6.46" I'd pull the trigger/be all over it etc.

I doubt you could prise him away from his band-20-spotting.

get an Asus Zenfone 3 ultra. It finally became possible to unlock the bootloader, and get permanent root and install TWRP. This means that custom ROMs are now possible.

​Alas, i think you are right. I could still buy 2 and drink them both, though.

That's too big!
Though still smaller than the HTC Flyer I used to use as my daily driver.
I don't see the point in keep talking about band 20. I bought the 32gb international version and works perfectly, everywhere I go I have 4g and no problems in accessing internet. It's a great phone and you won't want any other once you try it

I am not doubting you, but I can't find these & would like to read - may affect my potential choice of a Doogee Y6 Max.

I am happy for you, but until someone works out how to map areas for the band(s) of 4G coverage by network, it is unwise to buy a 4G phone for use in the UK which does not have band 20. For all you know you would get twice the speed of internet access somewhere if you had band 20.

Just speedtested 3G on 3 with 18.3 down and 1.3 up. You are correct, I might get double that on 4G though I have no use for it(unless my fibre fails).
Or perhaps 3 reprovision the mast you use to band 20 4G! Not necessarily likely, but equally possible. Orange and T-Mobile users felt the pain when the networks merged - possible that the o2 merger will throw up similar issues.

Perhaps a 'good deal' from Samsung on the S8 will come with a request to utilise band 20 more?

Perhaps the world will end, more likely than a good deal on an £800 S8. Perhaps the O2 merger won't happen. Perhaps my Mi Max will continue to work as expected and I can live without your worries.
I have the phone, yes it is big. I am now using it as a replacement nexus 7 2013 tablet.
I have gone back to using my oneplus 2 - mi max is big and awsome battery. Only the camera is not great.

You are missing the point - I have only ever bought phones with band 20 - they are your worries not mine. I appreciate that you choose to ignore them (as is your choice); I simply state the facts for the benefit of others who may fall for the non-factual promise that a phone without band 20 will work just as well as one with it on 4G on all UK networks bar o2.
