Found 10th Apr
Fantastic price considering prices over £310+ are going hot on here, and this is for UK delivery, no customs and arrives in 6-8 days!

I know people have had bad experiences (as with any company) but I personally have ordered 3 phones from them, no issues at all, and many say the same, plus they aceept Paypal and there is actually a 12 month warranty on all their phones.

Specs:

5.99'' IPS LCD 2160x1080 FHD+ display
Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
6GB RAM
64GB storage
12MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera
Bluetooth 5.0
USB Type C charging
3400mA battery

Amazing phone for the price, I'm holding out for the better camera on the Mix 2s, but that's another 150-200 notes.

Warranty?



12 month warranty, plus they accept PayPal, who treat buyer as king, so there really isn't an issue.
Excellent price for an excellent phone- reviews online are really good. Heat!!

I'm not sure if that helps, but it does go straight through for me, might just be your work network blocking it.
^-- that's also blocked as it's going through HUKD's referral system. The link to the sales page is what I'm after

Try adding https:// to the start of the link, that helps me get through my work network quite a lot

It kinda is how it works. If an item was cheaper last month then I know to wait as that price is likely to return. Seems a bit steep to me too, my 6/128GB mix 2 was only £314.

I agree with you, it will get cheaper, as is nature in a fast moving market, and after the Mix 2s comes out it'll go down a fair bit I presume.

But you are paying 20 quid more here than a Chinese grey site, for a 12 month warranty, ability to use PayPal, and 1 week no customs delivery.

A deal = a good price in the current market, not the market 4 weeks ago or in 2 months' time

The Mix 2 has all the bands you need. The Mix 2S is missing band 20 unless you get the 256gb version.
Is this better than an s7 edge?
Great phone. I'm thinking about getting one to replace my Oneplus 3
Haven't had a xiaomi phone for ages. The issues I had previously were: unable to download Netflix programs and certain Banking apps refusing to install. Has this now been fixed?

Miles better:

Stronger 4G bands (LTE)
Newer OS
Snapdragon 835 (same chipset in variation of S8/S8+)
6GB RAM vs 4GB RAM
Better camera (4 axis OIS included)
Bluetooth 5.0 vs 4.2
USB C vs microUSB 2.0
QuickCharge 3 vs 2


Pretty much just a better phone ^^ to be expected, given it came out 18 months later

It will rival them in perfect lighting but in anything less than that it won't even be close tbh

If you want a cheap flagship with an Iphone 8/S9 level camera, wait a bit more for the Mix 2s, apparnetly as good if not better

I have had a Mi 5, now a Mi 6, and will buy a Mix 2s, and can confirm no issues at all for banking (Monzo, Starling, Revolut, or Santander) and Netflix (love Money Heist and How to Get Away with Murder)

Also have a Mi Pad 3 which is similarly stable. Xiaomi is really becoming more of a mainstream supplier than some edgy Chinese brand nowadays.
Shouldn't say ROM in title. That's is read only memory

I just replaced my OnePlus 3 with the mi mix 2. Netflix downloads fine (currently watching casa de papel on it) and all my banking apps work including Halifax, Barclaycard and Starling. Definitely don't regret the change.

My wife had a Xiaomi phone a couple of years ago and I must say they seem to have toned down the MIUI quite a bit. Much less messing around required than she had to do with the Mi 5 she had.

So in general lighting it will still produce photos that can compete with S9? Mainly daytime photos etc but guessing the night time photos won’t be as good as the high end phones.

Im fine with that, I just find my iPhone doesn’t produce good enough photos as my friends S9 (granted S9 is not cheap and over £5/600).
Btw Money Heist is an amazing series!!!!

Money Heist probably has the most tactical genius I've ever seen in a series.

In terms of phones, the 2s will compare to the S9 and perhaps best it, I have watched 4 or 5 comparisons as I am going to buy the 2s, and it seems a general consensus that is is on par if not better than the S9 camera.

The Mix 2 will from the sounds of it be an improvement but will produce average low light shots and won't compete with 2018 flagships.
Am typying from that... Thought ill throw that in the bowl of comments
fir BT5.0 alone!!!
do their handset's support ANT please ?
thanks all advance

Thanks for the advice, at nearly £300 it’s no better than my iPhone 7. Was thinking of going for the Honor 9 lite which is amazing bang for your bucks, could even use the same change of selling the iPhone 7 getting Honor 9 lite and iPad.

The Iphone 7 isn't even that far behind, I would say you don't even need to upgrade.

But then I'm the one going from a Mi 6 to a Mix 2s

Go with the Mix 2s/S9/Iphone 8/X or don't bother imho man
I think the Honor 9 lite would be a considerable downgrade from the iPhone 7, no?

Might sound like a totally noob or obvious question but are these phones brand new or refurb / reconditioned units like the recent deals from various manufacturers people have posted lately? Thanks.

This one is brand new my friend, delivered in roughly a week or so, no customs charges. Any other Qs let me know
Do you guys think it this phone is a better buy than the Razer phone? I got the Razer from a Three 100GB deal last month but I always wanted the Mi mix and I am not sure now whether to keep my Razer phone or sell it and get this.
Also, what are the speakers like on the Xiaomi? Is the earpiece a secondary front firing speaker or is it just a mono bottom one? I'm kind of spoiled by the Razer's dual speaker setup.
