I think this is a pretty fab deal for an upper-mid range spec phone from one of the better 'Chinese' manufacturers.

This is the 'International Version' with Google Play Store installed.

This was a flagship when it was released.

Key Specs

SoC - Snapdragon 801 Quad-core 2.5 GHz
RAM - 3GB
Storage - 64GB
SD Support - No
Battery Size - 3080 mAh
Screen Size - 5.0 inches (~72.3% screen-to-body ratio)
Screen Resolution - 1080 x 1920 pixels (~441 ppi pixel density)
Camera - 13mp

Yes Gearbest, yes 'Chinese Phone', yes no NFC (I think) or App Drawer

I might be wrong but spec shows its only a 3G band phone.

However heat for the find, not a bad spec for a secondary phone or work phone!

I have the 16GB LTE version, and I can't fault it. Cracking deal.

Despite being released in mid 2014 it will receive the latest Miui version.

​What Android version is that?

Good phone for a great price. Just be aware that this looks lie it will not get upgraded to Nougat due to the CPU and chipset.

​It's MIUI8 on top of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

​This has Snapdragon 801, the article refers to SD800. Are they different?

Worth the little bit extra for this then over the redmi 3 pro?

Off the top of my head, ​this is faster with more storage, but has no SD card slot, no fingerprint scanner and no 4G.

I think the SOC is basically the same just a faster clock speed of the SD 800. A bit like the SD 820 and the new SD 821. Someone feel free to correct me if im wrong.

Will sky go work on this ?? thanks

I like the phone looks like a copy of Iphone. Is gearbest based in China, i'm assuming it is as it is a copy of amazon.

Battery life numero 1

I've got an Mi3, fantastic phone. Much better feel than the Redmi 3, which I didn't rate. I'd get this all day long, although it was only £90 new a few months ago.

This is the 3G version. Later versions are 4G.

​Are you sure about that? My redmi note 3 just got MIUI8 but it's still android 5.1 based.

I bought my Xiaomi Mi4 64gb back in October 14 for £330,it's a great phone and mine is still going strong HEAT

Yes, I'm sure. Either that, or the information in 'About Phone' is telling fibs.​

​Having said that, the upgrade to MM came with the update to MIUI 7.5.

Fair enough, I just assumed a specific version of MUIU would be based on a specific android version. Obviously it's not that simple. MUIU 8 on my Note 3 is still 5.1.1 based, but it should be getting MM soon.

Anyone give advise on the battery life. I had the ulefone power and loved the battery, hated the weight. Now I have the ulefone metal I love the size but the battery is pants

​I have the 16GB LTE version. If I hammer it, it lasts a whole day and into the evening til about 9pm. If I go lightly, I can get two days.

Pretty much a oneplus x but with bigger battery, 48gb more storage and marshmallow but without 4g,dual sim/micro SD.

does it come with google play?

eliHd452

​Possibly. When you get it, just flash the global ROM. No Chinese stuff and Google play installed. Happy days.

​Yep this is sold as the 'international version' with Google play installed

for an app, app drawer, I can recommend ZenUI Asus launcher which is great and free on the Play store.

banggood have the "Xiaomi Mi4 5-inch 2GB RAM 16GB ROM Snapdragon 801 Quad core 4G Smartphone" for £93

however, the 4G band is just for China Telecom, so no good in the UK.

Looks more like a copy of a Galaxy Alpha. Thing is there's only so many reasonable ways to make smartphones while still being useful, Apple aren't innovating anyway, the iPhone 7 will show that and I really hope it's their downfall so we get something exciting and fresh soon.

Gearbest is not like Amazon as there's no third-party sellers, it's closest to Amazon first-party only.

Why a secondary or work phone?! Its great as a primary phone!

Is this worth an upgrade from a OnePlus One 1?

Xiaomi and Microsoft did an experiment with the LTE version of the Mi4 and you can flash that to Windows Mobile 10, I don't know if this one can have that done or if anyone would want to. Just saying.

Good deal, however I am surprised it is not
dual band WiFi (AC)

Listed spec is :
WIFI: 802.11b/g/n wireless internet

Can i use my vodaphone sim in this phone?

Can i use my vodaphone sim in this phone?



​Yes, on 3G.

Good deal, have had the redmi 3 and its been a great phone. This is almost the same price but comes with Marshmallow based ROM. Personally having spent years installing custom ROMS on phones I find MIUI an excellent ROM which has so many useful features already built in.

Now my issue is my distinct dislike for white phones, I know the back cover can be easily changed. Somewhere I saw a screen protector with black borders, which would cover the front white faceplate nicely - but can't seem to find it again - if anyone has a link ?

NO NFC, so no android pay supported in the UK

Looks a good phone for the money, would I be charged import tax or vat if I bought it?
