You conveniently forgot to mention :- Chinese seller , so possible VAT and Import duties , no EU warranty , no feasible way of returning (£50+ tracked ) . But gullible sheep will probably still consider buying one
True value for money smartphone. Hope Samsung, google and other companies take a notice. Heat added. Thanks for sharing.

I smell apple...


Wouldn't touch an Apple device with yours .Overpriced ,overhyped and designed for people with more money than sense (and it shows in their owners ) . But at least you have a warranty with them .
Really nice price for a really nice device.
Good price, but keep in mind that it won't be a sealed box.
I got this last time it was a deal a few weeks ago. Very pleased with it, it's a lovely looking phone and the battery life if fantastic.

You didn't get the sarcasm - stop trolling! And what is the obsession with warranty - changed many phones since my first Siemens C25 and never had an issue requiring warranty claim.

Oh you were being sarcastic ?

You really must improve your wit . Sarcasm doesn't really work when its unnoticed .

As for "trolling " that is a really juvenile comment . Many members are unaware that these glossy sites are Chinese and the buyer has no warranty , and very little chance of getting their money back if it goes wrong or is doa .

Nothing against buying from these sites if you understand the risks and can afford the gamble , sadly many still don't - so I "troll" as you childishly put it - to increase awareness by the less savvy members .

I'm consistent with sensible , realistic comments that you may or may not agree with . What's your excuse ?
Nothing wrong with the phone at all, camera maybe isn't quite there. Lots of modes but still makes the pictures look flat and lifeless, colours are not quite right either. Your main problem is Gearbest,... they are carp. Oh and be prepared to pay an extra £50 in import duty, Gearbest use DHL and you will receive an automated, garbled and indistinct telephone message generated from Hong Kong advising an import duty amount but nothing will appear on tracking for about a week afterwards. Personally I would look around and pay the UK price ...so much less hassle and not much more expensive

Do you have any German ancestry?? I am struggling to understand how anyone could not get the "I smell apple" comment. It is a bit like reading a misogynist rant and someone asking if they have tiny hands.

Or do you not get that one either.

On the other hand, I partially relate to the post that triggered it, GearBest dont have a sterling reputation, and they have a bad rep for phones vanishing in transit. I cannot comment on VAT/Import duty, as I have not heard much about that from people who have bought anything from them, but the standard rules apply - avoid Fedex/DHL and take the cheapest delivery option; which tbh, isnt much slower than Fedex/DHL these days, and sometimes is faster.

It will do. The international version is a China version that has had the global rom flashed to it by the seller. This is why it will be unsealed when it arrives. The global version has the global rom installed at the factory. It also has all LTE bands and 128gb storage. It is quite expensive though, and not easy to find now.

Why you selling?
I just bought a Xiaomi Redmii Note 4 for $188 from TinyDeals Trading (Chinese Seller), make sure you get the right version supporting the 800Mhz LTE band (most UK phone networks use this). Shipping was free, I picked the slow shipping (which took 2 weeks), as this avoids getting stung for tax, though if you wanted it faster, it's such a good price adding tax would still be cheap. I know it's not the same model, but check the site out.

The phone is great, appears just as fast as any of the flagships (last years anyway), 4G picks up constantly, which is a lot more than my old LG G6 managed. It updated to Android 7 and MiiUI 9 a day after starting it, Android 8 upgrade will hopefully arrive by mid next year.

I've used tinydeal before. It's the only time I've ever been charged customs. I chose DHL as I needed the item quick, and I knew I'd get charged. All in all, no complaints.

Well done you Perhaps you would like to share this amazing fully tracked, insured service to China please . Best I can find is £53.50

Please also post it as a deal , as it will be very useful to members who need to return phones to the various Chinese sellers posted on here recently .

To be fair, I posted a phone to Hong Kong, and it was only about £20. I don't know where you're getting 50 from.

Think I'll just start posting a selection of the "Bought from Chinese Seller " sob stories I read on here every day.

To be honest I've not returned anything to China , as I haven't bought anything from there costing more than a few quid .

Just going by what members have said in the many "sob story " posts and had a quick google of "Cheapest fully tracked insured postage to China " to arrive at the £53 from Parcelforce .

Obviously "just tracked in UK" , "low insurance value " , "Slow boat "etc are cheaper

If members are finding fully tracked , insured shipping to China for less than £20 they should be posting as a deal . I fear it could be much in demand on Xmas day

I'm going from actual experience. Also sent an SSD back to a seller on Aliexpress, which only cost about 7 quid. Signed for within 7 days and refunded 2 days later. Again actual experience. Although, to be honest, I'm not too fussed about fully tracked, just that it's signed for at the other end. Not sure why anyone would want to know where their parcel has been on the way back.

You don't need fully tracked (and can't get it in China, because the postal system is difference), Royal Mail international tracked. Before you go spouting off, about something you have zero experience of, do you PROPER research first.

But you can get it fully tracked and signed for £50 + , My original statement (fully researched , thank you) . So take a gamble on buying - then take another gamble on returning should the need arise .

My point exactly , OK if you are fine with those risks to save money , but many are not aware and I believe they should be made aware ( although I realise I'm almost certainly wasting my time as the sheep, seeing only a cheap price on a glossy website, rarely if ever bother to research or read comments )

Postal items such as parcels are delivered to China Post in local post offices, and a notice card is sent by letter to each consignee for the consignee to come to the post office to collect their items. If there is no reply or collection within 7 days, a reminder notice card is sent to the consignee once more. If no reply or collection is made within 30 days, the item would be regarded as an undeliverable item.

Fair enough - tiny firms like Banggood ,Gearbest EGlobal etc send a chap down the local post office on his rickshaw (presumably ) to collect their returns .

As Irishman says, no tracking in China; been there - got done for that. Outgoing parcels from the UK will be tracked until they arrive in China; after that you get nothing.
Royal Mail honours Chinese Postal Service tracking, but the Chinese Postal Service doesnt honour Royal Mail tracking.

If you sent it Fedex or DHL, depending on the service level, you might get tracking; but that costs more than the phone is worth.

Even if it arrives in China within 48 hours (which is typical for RM), it can be weeks before Customs have finished with it; and what often happens is they slap a charge on it, so the seller refuses to collect it; eventually - around 6 months later the duff item gets returned to you. Also been there and had that happen.

Even if the seller honours the return, the one time I had to do it with a phone (an Umi), the turnaround was 5 months; they already have your money, and only constant nagging will get them to do anything but sit on it.

Racial stereotype or not, he is probably, accidentally correct; of course the rickshaw may have a motorbike engine and front end welded to it; or it might even be a full on DESIGNED TukTuk.

Of course, if there are only a few to collect, and it all weighs less than 50KG, they will probably send someone on a scooter; that is how my lost suitcases were transported from the airport to my apartment - a mere 30-40 miles or so; due to traffic, the 20mph scooter is usually faster than anything larger; once it gets into the city.

You would not beleive some of the things I have seen being transported by scooter in China; 40ft flag pole anyone??
