Looking for a cheap phone for my daughter to watch videos and play some games - are these any good? It's £75.43 on Geekbuying.com . Is this the same phone? Geekbuying says Official Global Version. I've never used GearBest

This phone is perfect as a main/spare phone or a phone for your daughter. Only things missing from this phone is NFC and a compass.

HI I got this for my dad and he was blown away (upgraded from a samsung young) when he took it to a phone shop in the city centre the man said he would recommend this phone to anyone and that xiaomi phones in general are for people who really know phones and are not just buying the brand.

I'm 95% sure I will be upgrading my Note Pro 3 to the Note 5 phone. Xiaomi should've put a SD652 CPU and improved on the 16MP camera in the Note Pro 3 in the Note 4 instead of putting in a weaker/inferior 13MP camera.

Just received this last week, so far I'm very impressed. It feels well built and solid despite being all plastic. Took a bit of getting used to MIUI, though it is very customisable ie restricting certain apps from using data, built in rules to put it on silent at certain times of the day etc I put NOVA launcher on it which I prefer. There's a fair it of "bloat" though which you can't uninstall / disable, unless you root it. Battery life seems very good
Phone is very fast compared with my old Moto G second gen.
Camera not so good though (ok outside, bit grainy indoors though the quality is set to medium by default, if you change it to hi res then then it does improve.
Video is a bit of a let down in terms of audio though, but I was filming a noisy school hall performance!
Overall very pleased with it, other than the lack of micro sd card slot if using dual sim (though as it's 32gb memory was able to get most my music vids phtos and apps etc on it and save about 3gb free for additional downloads etc.
Used the standard free delivery and ordered on the 25th June, it arrived on 13th July so just under 3 weeks. You can pay to get it a bit quicker, though I believe that increases the chance of a customs charge.
I bought a ZTE Blade A512 for my other half last month for £75 (inc £10 vodafone topup) plus a £1.29 fee for unlock, The redmi is in my opinion slightly better than that having dual sim and more storage and bigger battery, it's slightly smaller but not quite as thin as the ZTE though, and that was a bargain also (they are £99 + £10 topup now)

Hopefully they will release a band 20 redmi 5
For info it's not "ROM" it's 32gb of storage. I've seen this on a couple of posts recently.

ROM is something entirely different.
Is this running android 7?

It's marshmallow so 6. Not sure if there will be an update, though miui will presumably get updated.

I was hoping u were going to say it already has android 7 as I currently have honor 5x and doesn't seem to be many updates right now. Phone is laggy rather annoying
Hi. How different is the performance with this compared to the 4x 4g recently on here? 3/32 version. I bought that for myself for around £95 and I am delighted. I can't find that model for same price so considering this for my son. How difference is it performance wise please. Also I looked on gearbest and can't find the 4x 4g I bought, there's so many versions. Any deals on that?

I think the 4x is 5,5inch screen and octacore processor, so a different beast and looks good value too, but no band 20 (which is only really an issue if you use 4g on O2 I believe)

They're talking about the 4X, not a Note 4X. It's from the 5" Redmi series like the Redmi 4A and has a B20 Global Version too.

It's available at Gearbest, it's just more money.
Isn't this the normal price anyway ?...same price on alixpress.

Yes good phone but standard price
Will this phone work on the Three 4g network?
not in stock!!! I ordered mine 7days ago and still not shipped!

Will this phone work on the Three 4g network?

YES
Been using this phone for the past few months, no complaints. One of the reviews complained about the processor but as I don't play games on it never felt sluggish. As for not having a metal back, it's always in a case anyway, looks smart.
no compass according to the specs??

It probably won't be out for at least 3 months, we had spec leaks for the Redmi 4 Prime from July 2016 and that wasn't released until November 2016.

The Note 4 has a better camera (just) than the Note 3, I hope Xiaomi don't take advice from someone who thinks more megapixels means a better camera.

Yes the Chipset is weaker, but for most use cases it's not noticeable and the battery life is much better. If anything they should use the SD660 next which is the best of both worlds performance & battery wise.

You could be right although there are rumours of a new phone launch at the end of August the MI 5X is launching on the 26th July along with MIUI 9 China rom only at this time the launch show starts at 14.00 hrs China time 07.00 hrs here

Yes , buy from aliexpress (the price is about the same). I have had 2 of these phones ( 1 from seller goldway , 1 from eternal team ). Both were dispatched within 24 hrs .Both arrived in under 2 weeks from ordering using the free shipping.

You know you can put multiple quotes in a single reply instead of having to make the same comment 4 times? That Redmi Note 5A is neither of those leaks you posted about on many different threads. The Note 5A's retail box< appeared last month with specs being predicted and recently popped up on TENNA< (happened to a lot of previous releases). It's more like a Note version of the budget Redmi 4A, rather than the successor to Redmi Note 4. Nothing further has come of those Redmi 5 and Note 5 leaks you informed people of and I'd be skeptical about them being real as they look more like fan generated renders but I guess time will tell.

I did not know about multiple quotes if what you say is right its a big disappointment and looking at the redmi 5 and redmi note 5 links i put up before the redmi note 5 in the photo's on them has a front fingerprint scanner whereas the photo's of the note 5A show it on the back like the photo's of the redmi 5 so you are probably right

That's not the Note 5, it's significantly worse than the Note 4 in every single way. That's just a larger Redmi 4A which is the worst model they make.
