Got this offer via email. I know it may not be for everyone but it seemed like a good deal to me.
It says Email only price but i am not sure. The other 2 options are slightly more expensive at £83.20 but are not stated as email only price.

The phone feels cheap (light and plastic back) but it's excellent for the money. I have it as a spare phone and I find the dual SIM very useful.

I don't do anything demanding with it, so haven't noticed any performance issues.
Cold. Grey £72.61, others £83.20, you can easily buy EU sourced at these prices. These are frequently £65 on other "flash sales" (they have them just about every day), so that should be taken as regular price, ignore RRP or any other claim.

I got blackview A7+ for £60 and seems better spec. Feels good to hold and eu based supplier.
goonertilidie has posted a deal for this phone for £65 from geekbuying.
I took a punt on the Note4 before Christmas, and must say I'm very pleased with it. Great value, especially if it manages to work as well for at least a year

Did you get it delivered to uk and did you get charged tax
I wonder what the warranty would be like on this handset?
I've ordered around 10 phones from China and this was the first one to be hit by customs (£20.80, £12.80 of which went to Royal Mail, the rest was import duty. I ordered from LITB who had the proper price on the outside of the package (and probably why it was flagged up.) Paying the duty didn't bother me, it was the 10 day hold up that had me sweating for Xmas. I've ordered a few from GB without being hit (maybe it's just the luck of the draw) so can recommend the company.

As to the phone, it was bought for my missus and it's a great little phone. As Redmi phones sell well, they are well supported and I really don't think you can buy better at this price point even if you are hit for the extra £20.80. I wouldn't hesitate buying from China again.
As long as people are consciously buying a phone with 2gb of memory. Even my kids need more than this these days

2gb is fine for most tasks, I have never had any issues. I would get 3 or 4 and a note version as it looks like the RN4 was too popular and are killing the line. Shame that greed has struck because it won't persuade me to go to a higher model and I'm sure others feel the same. The RN4 is probably going to be the Xiaomi phone of choice for some time yet.

I bought from Amazon LC. No tax and arrived in 3 days, my daughter loves it, I thought it was snappy when I set it up. Good for everyday. I have a LeEco S3 on order. Latvian supplier. They I'll root my moto g4. S3 is 4gb ram 64gb version. X626. Trying to find roms for it.

Hi

What's Amazon LC can you please share the link.

Thanks
Exactly. Any issues and you return it. Blackview are a solid Chinese brand that make some robust phones. This one is perfect for everyday use, or backup. It has SD slot so I doubled up the storage. I think it supports higher though.
Link is above fella, unless removed. I pm'd it anyhow.

I was tempted to buy this but went with a Redmi Note 5A Prime Note (global version) from aliexpress. It seems a more secure way to purchase something like this, for example, if it doesn't turn up, you will get a refund.

Prime version is also 8 cores (rather than 4 for the normal Note 5A). It's also made in China, not India and has a built in fingerprint reader and takes upto 256GB micro sd (instead of 128GB). Could be some other differences too.

Cost about £88 including shipping.

I wanted something with a big screen to replace my iPhone 5S. I like my iPhone but with iOS11 it's buggy, features I want are now missing. I had a Redmi Note 2 Note and that was superb. I should have kept it and dumped the iPhone.
