Cheapest I've seen this now the exchange rate has caused a price rise in Chinese phones.

GOLD colour only at this price!

EDIT: GOLD COLOUR SOLD OUT SO THREAD EXPIRED.

Please note: the Redmi Note 3 DOES NOT have a SD Card slot so if you tend to load a lot of stuff onto your mobile this is probably not the version for you (there is a 32GB version with 3GB RAM but you do pay a premium).

Usual caveats apply about potential Customs charges, of course.

Please also note this doesn't cover the full spectrum of UK 4G networks so DO check compatibility before ordering!

SUPERB Spec for the asking price.

Main Features:
Redmi Note 3 retains Helio X10, adds full metal body, fingerprint sensor and massive 4000mAh battery!
13MP/5MP cameras on Redmi Note 3 take gorgeous pictures. Here are some unedited photos.
Redmi Note 3's fingerprint sensor unlocks in just 0.3s. Body has a smooth sandblasted metal finish too.
Redmi Note 3 has a massive 4000mAh battery but is only 8.65mm thick, weighs 164g - just 4g heavier than Redmi Note 2!

Fantastic deal, have some heat
go for the silver version of you don't want the plaid design on back.

I had the note 2 for a short while and it was great, supports otg so memory wasn't as bad as it could have been, only real problem is the heavily laden os, bloatware galore, first thing anyone should be doing is browsing xda forums for a better rom

heat given
Unless someone knows a surefire way of avoiding customs then I think people need to start adding import tax and handling costs to these Chinese deals. This could easily cost you £30-40 more...
Never paid duty from china on over 10 handsets. Pure luck maybe but if sent via normal tracked post you usually don't get stung. If you choose DHL then much more likely.

Still 1/3 of the price against phones at our market compering the performance if you get software right. Owning Note 2 from Goldway no Vat being charged and hardly heard anybody being charged unless you get via DHL

Totally agree. I guess it all depends on if you are prepared to work a bit to save arguably 200+ pounds. I am a recent convert to Chinese mobiles and now would never buy a mainstream UK-sourced phone again. But Xiaomi are much less of a risk than the smaller supliers given the fact they are one of the world's biggest mobile companies and seem to support their products really well.

Same but would only buy well checked and supported mobiles that is why I picked Xiaomi after 2 months of consistent reading and not all their models are perfect and only few brands in China are commited to build customer base. Would not buy Elephone for example.

Good deal. What are AliExpress like compared to GearBest?
4000mah battery!!
Octacore 8xsuperfly TNT guns of navarone




........16gb X)
not a good deal. if this were the 3gb version at that price it would be a deal

I bought the 3gb one at £8 more a month ago
Good price but since I've got the Note 2 - standard version (£85) I'm gona hold out for the Note 3 Pro (Snapdragon 650!!)

where? Is it not the 32gb model that has 3gb of ram.
very tempted to go for a note 2/3 but also tempted by the latest the asda vodafone deal. How good are these xiaomi's compared to say a vodafone smart ultra?
Hi, just to give you info, Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 - £99.00 instore @ ASDA. a UK deal you can trust. Go to asda, great UK Deals

Sorry to ask this question but i am keen on this deal, however worried about 'What happens if the handset develop a fault how do you get support, do have to send it back to china?'
If it is as good as note 2 then a great deal, though im happy to stick with my 2=)

thats the drawback
yes you will have to send it back at your cost
the warranty are really not worth anything

Yeah I still think the redmi note 2 is better than this model as you have the option of adding 128gb SD card on top of the 16/32gb internal storage plus the internals are virtually identical
Wife and Daughter has the Xiaomi Note 2, these phones are completely insane value for money versus what we have as "main brand" offerings.
Just let me say, a Xiaomi note 2 (£94) with a £3 metal case and a £1.47 toughened glass screen protector went down 3 flights of concrete steps.............dented the metal case.............thats it.
My other daughter knocked her Sony off the arm of the couch.................shattered the screen.

My £8 Xiaomi powerbank is excellent quality and charges my devices quickly.
My £20 Xiaomi router extends further than my Netgear and was AC.

Horses for courses, of course, but i cant find fault with Xiaomi products
$172.99 is closer to £119 than it is to £112

Its why i chose the note 2 over waiting the couple of weeks for the newer note 3 internal space and external SD was more important for me then the metal frame and finger print scanner.
how could anyone knock this back!? Unbelieveable deal but as been mentioned i'd pay the £137 for 3gb RAM version personally: aliexpress.com/sto…tml

​don't pay for fast delivery and its highly unlikely that you will get hit with customs duty.
I've had 3 phones and not had to pay extra. its part of the risk yes, but a very very small risk, and usually if someone doesn't know about the customs duty issue, they will read either on the sellers website or through own research.

​yes it was the 32gb version with 3gb.it was on presale at the time
Shows how easy UK Customs is to get through. Concerning really. Worth asking if they can pop in some cocaine or such (?)
Partner has similar spec with a Elephone P8000 and has never gone below 50 % battery usage in a day.Great spec for this as well.
I'm waiting for the new snapdragon 650 version - will be a good £50 more tho and probably more difficult to get a hold of for a while

Yes, personally in 2 minds whether to wait for the Pro to come down in price or get a Redmi Note 2 or 3 now. If Kimovil are to be believed the Pro's Antutu score comes in at 77000 oO

Whatever i go for, pretty certain it will be a Xiaomi to replace my almost 1 year old elephone P6000 now I know more about the Chinese phone market (which is not to say the P6000 hasn't been great as it has).

Shame no SD Card slot, will stick to my Smart 6 Ultra
WATCH OUT! Really look into what you're buying folks, this phone CAN have serious issues in the EU, XIAOMI has never released proper support for it last time I checked, it does not have access to play store and requires little work to get around it. If you don't want to do all that hassle? Avoid.
Always take the freepost option and most of the time you'll get away with the duty.The volume of parcels is just vast to search.DHL and UPS etc is a much smaller volume so its more likely you'll get stung for charges.
There is a you tube video of this phone versus the I fone 6 and there is not a lot of difference between the two exept for price
If this phone had an SD slot I would be all over it, I can't believe that any Chinese manufacturer wouldn't include it seeing as it's one of the most disliked things about smartphones.

​The problem is if you want a metal back it is far too easy to crack if you open it to access the SD slot, look at S6 for example, you think Samsung just converted to no SD cards as a fluke? You could in theory design a port like for sim cards but that takes up more space so it is more of a manufacturing issue.
this is a lot of phone for the money. but with the lgg4 coming down in price I'd rather pay the extra. heat though as its a great deal and Ive been happy with all my xiaomi stuff

​Not true re comment about Play Store. I bought the 32GB version from GearBest and Play Store was pre installed.
