Missing the 4G band 20, but good price.

Tempted to upgrade my 3 pro to this
Actually, not enough of an upgrade to the 3 pro I don't think. But heat added

Okaaaay.. Please don't give me grief or sarky comments for what I'm about to say, because there always seems to be a couple of sarcastic-know-it-all(s) who comments.. All I need is simple advice without the tech jargon because I haven't got the foggiest idea what on earth you're on about half of the time.. But I am thinking of going for a Xiaomi phone having read a load of your positives about them, and without the price tag of phones like the Samsung S7. What I want is a good camera, internet, calls, messages, storage, battery life, and I need good network coverage being in a semi rural area (preferably EE. Vodafone coverage here is Crap!). That's it.. Can anyone recommend or point me in the right direction as to which is the best one to go for?.. (_;)

pretty nice, downsides no NFC, micro usb (no usb C)

They will all do what you want. The big let down is always the cameras. Pictures in good light are a little soft and grainier than expected in low light. The best of the bunch is the camera on the mi5 which if you look around on the net can produce some pretty good pictures.

Can you get a grey color in this

I was nearly tempted by this phone but after looking at a few youtube videos, I've been put off by how bulky looking it is for a 5 inch phone. Check out the size of the bezel compared to the promo photos. Spec wise, it is some serious bang for your buck.

Yeah that's pretty poor, not an issue with the black one and it still has a ~69% screen to body which is on par with most phones. I'm definitely getting one of these but am waiting for hopefully an international version with more 4G bands.

​I'm exactly the same, thinking of getting one for one of my children for Christmas. I'm pretty much clueless and it's like reading Chinese with most of these posts X)

a pity there seems to be no band 20 versions of the note 4, well as far as I can see.

does anyone know if apps which don't allow themselves to be run on rooted phones work? for example banking apps.

​well the bootloader won't be unlocked by default you have to apply to Xiaomi for permissions. so bank apps should work. having said that HSBC works on Redmi note 2 rooted device

​First direct app works on my unlocked bootloader and. rooted Nexus 4, however TSB doesn't....

Is Geekbuying reputable?

They are selling the Note 4 Pro global ROM for £144. 57 it seems that it is the 64GB version.... For those who prefer a bigger screen....

You'll need to flash this to the xiaomi.eu rom anyway unless you want a buggy experience without proper google integration. You'd be mad to not reflash it anyway as most resellers ship them with buggy vendor roms which at best contain adverts and at worse contain malware which will steal all your data.

Hi, why would you suggest xiaomi.eu instead of the official en.miui.com/dow…tml ?

Because this phone only has a Chinese rom out, no global, the Chinese roms have no google apps at all and aren't fully translated to English. You can add google play/google services from the Chinese store but they don't integrate or work very well. Even with a proper Global rom many prefer Xiaomi.eu as it's translated better, more up to date and is has properly had the Chinese services stripped.

I would recommend NOT purchasing until Global ROM is available.
Look forward to the 4 Prime reviews, very much like Xiaomi smart phones esp. 5" version
When Global ROM is available this may tick all the boxes - but not yet.

Could you not just buy it now and then flash the Global ROM when it becomes available? Or is more required (e.g., hardware differences) to allow all Global features like Band 20 etc.?

​dont really see those as downsides tbh?

The same colour is now 10% more expensive (£132.66) in their black friday pricing, how shameless is that.
