Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro (16GB) - £145.36 Gearbest EU

Found 22nd Mar 2016
I'm personally waiting for the 32GB version to be available from the Gearbest EU warehouse but for those of you that don't need so much on-board memory then this may be for you. (All 3 colours apparently available now).

I know people on here have had issues with Gearbest but then plenty of others haven't as well. Shipped from EU warehouse so should save on the wait and also avoid extra customs charges.

Can you remember which seller you used? (I'm looking for alternatives to Gearbest)

was it seller with the thumbnail of item declaring "no tax" and ships by DHL ? 32gb currently showing £155, bit dubious how can guarantee No Tax

​well a got it delivered in 5 days and didn't pay a penny more,didn't pay vat or anything extra

Gearbest are a terrible company, I ordered two things from them. They took the money for one which they never had in stock, eventually I had to get them to reverse the payment and lost out on the FX. The other item I ordered was full of Chinese spyware and bloatware and the screen was unresponsive, they promised a partial refund if I closed the Paypal case and then reneged. It is only a matter of time before they get banned from here.

FAQs
Goods Purchased Online for Personal Use

You may be charged customs duties and taxes for something purchased online because:
Duties and taxes are most typically not included in the price of the goods you purchase online, and might not be included in the overall shipping costs you pay to the online retailer.
When purchasing goods online, some or all of these goods may not originate in the country you reside in, therefore are subject to a customs duty, which is a tariff or tax imposed on goods when transported across international borders.
When goods are not shipped domestically (within your country) or within a single customs union, such as the European Union, you are liable to pay any inbound duties and taxes which your local customs authority deems appropriate.
To ensure the DHL courier can deliver your goods in shortest possible time after entering your country or customs union, DHL pays the customs authority on your behalf for any duties and taxes that are due on the goods.
Once the duties and taxes are fully repaid to DHL the goods will be delivered to you
What is payable, if anything, depends on where the goods are sent from, the type of goods, their transactional value and the weight of the package
When buying goods online, you should always check whether they are either being sent to your address from:
Your country
Another country
Outside your customs union country

Tempted by this, but customs may charge you as this one comes from China or HK,

use quidco.com for 10% cashback and paypal gives you 3% discount i think, but the conversion from GBP to USD is bad.

The 2/16 version is from EU warehouse so no customs.

​thought it be something like that as lot Chinese will do this if requested, just never really promoted as guaranteed and you can't guarantee much in life.

only bought telephone 8000 what's seems like few months back but possible closer to a year, and liking it but no Miui ROM,

Don't really want get addicted to importing phones, ( bit addicted to importing Lego minifiqures, but they are cheaper)

I got the same phone from the same seller and can confirm that no extra charges or tax was payable even though it came via DHL. It seems to work like this:
I got one DHL tracking number that was for 5 items. These went from China to Gatwick via a circuitous route - I think there were 23 entries. This was then delivered to and signed for by "Jay".
Then I got another tacking number for just one item (my phone I guess) and it went on another merry dance of UK airports - another 17 entries - before being delivered to me in 5 days.
What I suspect might be happening is that this seller has someone in the UK who acts as the EU distributer. I don't know how they are avoiding customs but they are avoiding customs (maybe they pay them on the first delivery).

​can it work on 4g EE

Leonidas85

why is this better than the note 3 with the helio x10?


The Snapdragon 650 in the Pro model is significantly more powerful than the X10 (2xA72 cores with 4xA53 cores as opposed to 8xA53 cores and a much better GPU) and more power efficient. The Pro is faster than last years flagships like the LG G4 and Moto X Style. Also the battery is amazing. My last phone was a OnePlus 2. I got through two full charges a day on that thing. With the RN3 Pro I have never had any problems at all getting to the end of a day, 05:30 to 22:30 with heavy use in an area with marginal signal.

​can it work on 4g EE


I has band 3 & 7 which EE use. Band 3 is by far and away the most important for EE at the moment (and Three). However no band 20 support so no good for O2 or Vodafone. Of course it fully supports 3G HSPA+ and 2G.

​no that's one of the draw backs of getting a Chinese phone as certain bands are missing which means it won't work on all networks best to check first bit it does work on 3

yes looks like you are right it is misleading in about us it says it is a professional retail shop of xiaomi so not the same as official xiaomi shop

How long would it be for Gearbest to ship this from the EU warehouse? It's in London, isn't it?

Global ROM!!! for Snapdragon version !

Does this phone support quick charge as seen some people saying it does and some saying it doesn't

Fantastic price from EU warehouse! Heat added. See what you can get for this price from a mainstream UK-sourced mobile manufacture and weep lol. Granted, there's effectively no warranty on this but worth the risk for the incredible bang for buck imo.

Even the most bias would say 3 days is being somewhat hopeful. I'd say a week. At least it's not 30 days from China, and no customs to pay, shame it's missing 800mhz 4g frequency.
