10 quid cheaper at aliexpress as posted last week

The specs tell me this is for the Redmi 4 Prime:

See here for the difference between this and Redmi 4 (2GB+16GB and Snapdragon 430):

Very tempting...

if this has had band 20 would have been my first choice. instead went for the note 3. will be a cracking phone. the redmi 3 is awesome and this just builds on it

I've just bought note 4 pro and love it. thinking of buying this for my mum for xmas. only thing putting me off is it not having global rom with updates.
When this becomes available does anyone know whether its easy to load?
thanks

So many redmis.
How does this compare the the 3s prime that has band 20 and glabal6rom and was posted for 108 late week.
Also the note 3 pro global version with band 20 was posted for around 125 not too long ago either

​with the 3, first came developer ROM, then a xiaomi ROM, then global.

flashing the xiaomi ROM required the bootloader unlocked after an easy flash of the developer ROM (done through their updater app).

so not the easiest. but someone a bit tech savvy should be OK to do it.

HOW DO THEY MAKE PROFFIT AT THESE PRICES??

LG said they made 1p per top of the range smart phone not long back, these guys are like 200-300 cheaper with same if not better specs

jordni: do you believe that 1p story? because i don't.

Wikipedia (cough) says that they don't make a profit.

Apparently the aim is to distribute hardware at cost price, and make money from software and services.

They don't seem to be directly owned by the Chinese state, which might be considered a bonus

Lg must be paying their workers high salaries!

Have you ever purchased anything from any of these major companies that was software?

i reckon the data collection is where the dolla is at.

They're probably including marketing costs, which are huge for lg. When did you last see an advert for xiaomi?

LG's lying

How does something like this compare to a more mainstream smart phone like the Samsung s6 (for example) - this seems really quite cheap. I guess a more relevant question for me would be how would an s6 user generally find moving to a phone like this.
Thanks.

I assume they preinstall their own productivity and cloud suite which covers both purposes.

Looks like custom ROMs are available, so this could be a good buy

I Was using a cheap chinese phone not long ago, its build quallity was not great, and the screen glass was not tempered, so the screen cracked really easilly , however it was still usable...
the phone its self was very fast and more responsive than the galaxy s6 (which was the next phone i brought), i hated the s6 so much i sold it and brought an LG G4 Second hand.

over all, if you get a decent Chinese phone i doubt much can go wrong, where as if you cheap out like i did (phone cost just £38)

Cold... this phone cost £108 at Aliexpress + 8.8% quidco cashback making it <£100

Anybody see any other colour than gold?

There is no B20 Band and no UK warranty on this phone.

​Fcuk me here you go again

@sam, the UK warranty is you can buy 2 extra phones and keep them in your cupboard incase your main phone breaks. lol

​The Samsung S6 is/was a high end phone, every component was top notch. This is a budget smartphone that's trying to give you the same experience. The camera isn't as as good, it won't be as zippy when playing hardcore games, the software updates won't come in, but other than that, you're getting a very good phone for the money. One thing about the Xiaomi brand that you can trust is the build quality, always metal

If you get the phone from AliExpress, it includes a one year worldwide warranty and a replacement service for additional £5-15.

I have one of these great phone great price

​Don't, don't, don't start him off!

If these had a removable battery I'd be tempted, but it seems that less and less manufacturers are taking that route

You can configure the phone to how you like. If you wanted to have it like the S6 then that's up to you. After the latest update to MIUI 8.1 I think it's pretty much the same as other Android phones I've had in the passed.

You are wrong when it comes to software upgrades. Xiaomi updates their phone's OS with security patches and new features all the time. My Redmi Note 2(released mid-2015) received another update yesterday.

Banned

Xiaomi tends to use a global ROM update for non chinese sales now - so you shouldn't have any issues with updates etc.. They are the 3rd biggest phone manufacturer in the world so their products must be ok.

The Redmi's look like great phones for very little money. Snapdragon cpu's are really good. I reckon the camera won't be as good as high end manufacturers but I never really got the obsession with camera quality - if I want to take great photos I'll buy a good DSLR.

I've had Cubot phones in the past and been really pleased with them. Basic phones with reasonable specs for under £100.

​your best bet is to select the standard delivery which takes 20 to 40 days. it's less likely, but is still possible.

​You should be informed to stop trolling threads about Chinese phones that you don't like, and think no one else should like either. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Simple.
