Phone will come sealed and with band 20 but you will need to flash the global ROM as Google play does not come installed... reading up this seems pretty decent

EDIT : CUSTOMS CHARGES WILL NEED TO BE PAID AS ALL ITEMS FROM JOYBUY ARE DECLARED AT FULL PRICE... SO PROBABLY BETTER OPTIONS AVALIABLE

is this XA or XE model
dryspuri5 m ago

is this XA or XE model


Don't think it states that... what's the difference?
If you need to flash the global ROM it will be the XE Chinese model.
Its not as easy as you think to flash the ROM, these are bootloader locked and you have to jump through multiple hoops ( registering a Mi Account and waiting for an email to allow it to be unlocked ) on chinese websites that dont translate easily at all, i gave up and sold mine on....nice price though so heat for that just be aware that a chinese rom isnt ideal
Joybuy = VAT to pay, so not a great deal really
To be legally imported into the UK this adds another 20%, you will only pay the headline price is this is smuggled into the UK via customs fraud / avoidance.

This will need flashing and don't forget Google are clamping down on Google apps being added after the fact:

androidpolice.com/201…ms/

Factor in the VAT you will need to pay, and then the faff with putting on Google apps which will need the boot loader unlocked, IMHO this is a poor value if you place any value on your time.
Apparently they declare full price on their items (which is only right) so expect a hefty customs charge.

If this was android one, sales would be though the roof.

That part is less of a problem.. It's relocking the bootloader which seems xiaomi are blocking once unlocked on the Mix 2s.
Which means no android pay or banking apps

I had issues getting Google Play working on mine, had to sell it on and get a global ROM one.....pity

On my Mi Note 3, I unlocked the bootloader using the xiaomi tool, and flashed the global rom using the mi flash tool. The software relocked the bootloader and Google Pay and all my banking apps work fine. You should be able to install the global rom just by flashing with the updater app, but you'll still only have China in the region list.

I have the Mix 2 - not Mix 2s and did that and Worked fine just like you.

But the mix 2s is a different story. They're not allowing relocking of bootloader.

Ah, I didn't know this. Was considering it for my next device. It will have to be the global version. Not gonna buy for a few months, so there's plenty of time.
Would love one of these from a uk store unlocked

The 128gb version is available on Amazon UK just much dearer!

And you will be going your extra money to a company who use tax avoidance methods in the UK so just get it from a Chinese seller for less. Obviously there is the amazon returns policy which your paying extra for too

Never had to that with my kids, the full Rom is signed and you only need the flashtool which has access to the bootloader and root.

I've added into description that joybuy declare full cost so the customs charge doesn't make this deal worth it... was kinda hoping it didn't go hot after you mentioned the customs charges and now the deals gone into highlights.

Would expire the deal bit not sure if I'm allowed to do that???

The customs charge would be high £70's low £80's.

Don't be so downhearted, I posted a deal from Joybuy just from the highlighted price too, then I found out they declared full value and haven't posted joybuy since because the deal just isn't there with them.

Yip! Got it all in for £49.89, so that's still cheaper than the UK, not by a massive margin.

Yeah not too far off Gearbest, I noticed they even had the OP 6 at £320-340.

Yeah, then £80 on top which is still cheaper than you can buy here.

However, if you posted that deal, and stated that there would be £80 to pay, it would go cold, because that's how this site works, I'm sure you know that anyway.

Gearbest is down to £412 now, so There is not much point getting it from JB now. It's going to be interesting to see their pricing when they finally enter Europe.
What was the del. time like on the Amaze?

Ordered on the 1st, received it today, so 24 days in total, didn't get a tracking number or nothing, so it was kind of a wait and hope deal.
Just been stung for £78.60 customs charge from a previous JB purchase of a Mi Mix 2s
Definitely not worth it when you factor in the rooting etc!
