I am posting, hoping all the people in the know with mobiles will support me on this post as I know it was posted last week, but stock ran out.
Hope the international version is suitable for UK market. Software not the fastest but still, a great buy

The one mentioned in your description which was posted last week was the 3/32GB B20 Global Version. This is the 2/16GB non B20 China Version flashed with Global ROM.

Using code: 11NOV647 on this brings it down to £84.05

Anyone on here use any of these Xiaomi phones day to day?
I've bought cheaper phones in the past and suffered from things like less responsive screens which need a double touch etc..
Are you able to root and install a custom Rom on them? If not are the roms any good.
Cheers

Typing this on a Redmi Note 4 (4gb/64gb) rooted with Lineage OS installed.

Amazing value. £130.

Absolutely no issues whatsoever. As good as any phone I've used. Camera isn't quite as good as flagships but have installed the Google HDR+ camera app and that's improved it.

This is an ace deal!!

I'm looking at getting one of these for my 13 year old daughter but I'm a bit chicken! I'm wondering which network to use with it and whether I would need to do anything with the phone before I gave her it? They look absolutely fantastic, but I have visions of it arriving and it causing me swears because I couldn't set it up/get a network to suit it.

Does anyone have any advice please? I just need a bit of reassurance and a kick up the backside I think!

I think the 3gb/32gb global version is worth paying the extra for from ali express. Better specs, more compatibility with our networks, less risk of issues even if she's not bothered about specs.

This one lacks band 20 which some UK networks use on 4G. Consider the global version mentioned above from ali express for a little more money.

Thanks for your reply

I'm happy to pay a bit more for one that's more user friendly. Do they have to be rooted to be easily used? It's something I've never done before and I am worried about bricking it but then no doubt she'd be hoping it to have the usual Google Play options etc.

I agree. Well worth the extra for the 3GB/32GB Global version. The extra RAM does make it noticeably snappier, and the genuine Global version will have Band 20 4G so will get good 4G on all UK networks as opposed to the International Version which won't.

The global version is for rest of world use and has Playstore and everything else on there (as well as Band 20). Use straight out of the box and it get s regular updates as well, which may not be said for the "International" version (which is the Chinese phone with a modified ROM).

Buying things is good gearbest but delivery takes life times, I got smart watch more than 2 weeks ago has not dispatched yet.

Ordered my Xiaomi redmi note 4x at gearbest on 6th October and arrived last Thursday with no problems, excellent phone for the price 32gb global

Oooh thanks for confirming this, that's a huge game changer. I'd better go have a look and get her one ordered! The speaker went on my old Samsung S4 mini she has ages ago, I think she'll be stoked to have something exotic. I'll be telling her it's 'exotic' rather than just 'cheaper' obviously...

My daughter has the Global 3S, my son the Global 3 Note and I have the Global 4 Note. My wife is still on the fantastic looking Lenovo Vibe Shot. The Chinese at my son's university were pretty impressed as they did not realise that there was a global version of the phones.

Just arrived, ordered 19th

I've got the 3Gb Aliexpress one. Had it since February, have 2 sims in it and use it heavily. Excellent purchase.

for those that wants options, here's a video unboxing of the Vernee M5 I just purchased for my wife. at the moment they are below £90 with a nice blue colour option too.

64GB with 4GB of Ram, although it's a MediaTek 6750 and not a Snapdragon.

Typing on my Redmi Note 3. 18 months on and it's working fine, battery life is still excellent. Only issue it ever had was the jumpy gyro which it still has. Sadly I did drop it and crack the screen last week.

I've just ordered this from Ali Express..bit giddy! First order from Ali Express and there was one review on this page with a photo of a box which had apparently been filled with stones ( sounds a bit far fetched ) but I'm sure it will be fine!

Thanks for posting the deal and for all the advice. I think it's looking like we'll all be swapping from Samsung to Xioami eventually you know.

I believe that you don't pay until it is received from Ali (may be wrong though as I have never used them).

Best of luck!

I have just received the second MiBand from Gearbest. I didn't check the packet of the first one, but it was declared as a gift with a value of 13.99 (which was the dollar price) but the return address was to the Solomon Islands.........

Payment is taken when you order but they only release it to the seller when you confirm satisfactory delivery (see below for conditions that apply)

Thanks for the clarification; thought that it might be in Escrow.

Interestingly, my Note 4 Global is just updating to Miui 9.0 as I type.

Hi. Where can you get a phone case for your note 4?

The easiest place is ebay; you need to look for the Note 4X, which has the same layout as the Global. I have yet to find screen protectors (glass) which fit

Anyone know how long it takes for an order from Gearbest to arrive as I been waiting 20 day
