Haven't seen the gold at this price before, has been the price of the white but if you're interested in the gold, here you go

The black is still full price unfortunately @£244.19 ):

Great specs for the price point, I'm so very tempted by this offer but can't quite provide an adequate enough reason to justify selling on my honor 7 D:

I don't post too much so don't be too harsh please!

I'll leave this lot here...
Cheers!

​Saw that on a previous deal, never ordered from geekbuying though (not knocking it) but this deal's specifically for the gold model which seems to be at a higher price point than the white anyway

I wouldn't bother getting from china the gold one is £199 from ebay shipped from france so no customs.

what's the difference between a Chinese edition and a global edition?

Chinese version is chinese/english language only no play store.
Global is multiple languages + play store.A lot of these retailers install their own hacked version of global.
Your better off getting the chinese/english version then installing the official global yourself.

There is no B20 band on this phone but they are trying to unlock it somehow on various forums
It does not even support carrier aggregation in the remaining 4g bands so slow internet speed

£199 from ebay for that phone is HEAT especially that its from france, if only I liked the design of that phone over the redmi note 3 I may have bought it (_;)

says its from France but I believe that eglobal ship from far east

says its from France but I believe that eglobal ship from far east



They will have stock in France just look at the delivery date compared to the chinese 20-40 day delivery.

OK. ... just read that people have brought from them on ebay before and its come from far east, not France as stated.

Global version here, new, for £193, with PayPal cover, 6-8 day delivery, and 1 year UK warranty, I have personally bought 3 phones from these guys no issues, in fact currently using a gold Mi5 myself from here

This is really not a good price, considering I got my Gold Mi5 for 203 around 6 weeks ago

does it defo come with the global rom from eglobal? looking at the mi5's each one has a reminder at the bottom which is a bit disconcerting.


* REMINDER: Please be reminded that this Chinese version mobile phone does not comes with Google Play initially, which can be downloaded manually and comes with pre-installed Chinese apps and you might choose to disable those apps and any update of the ROM will viod the warranty that provided by us.

So either that doesnt apply or they put a global rom on but no google that you have to download manually. Normally if they put a global rom on they ship with google play. Thats what Ive found to be the case hsitorically anyway.
