Great phone,had mine 6 month's. Well worth 100 quid.
If you know the risk of importing electronics from China and happy to take it then this is the perfect price, just enough for section 75 to apply!!
Perfect price to qualify for S75, but Aliexpress' payment processing disqualifies

No direct payment to merchant via Aliexpress, so S75 will not apply.

It comes in its own case and has a screen!

If you mean a bulky case and a screen protector don't bother. Use as it was intended, naked*.

I have always recommended MOFI flip cases to friends and family on account of them having a thin sheet of metal inserted in the flip part for extra protection. Cheap as chips from ali as well - about 6 quid.

One drop and there's a good chance the screen is done with these though, using without a case and screen protector is silly.

I fear this will be the case, I managed to chip the screen on mine just by putting on a case, I was a bit heavy handed, but I think any drop will cause the screen to break.

its a very good phone though.

​I meant separate sd slot like note 5a, so still can use 2 Sims...

and I think the 4gb/64gb has been around £110 before so maybe worth waiting for a deal like that

I have a case and screen protector on my 4x, phone still looks great.

I highly recommend these phones to people after having one but protection is a must.
Anyone has experience buying from aliexpress in terms of paying customs charges? I never had to pay when bought few times from gearbest.

i believe this is the Chinese version not the global, title on aliexpress misleading,

"Original Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Qualcomm 3GB 32GB Global Version Snapdragon 625 Mobile Phone 5.5" FHD 13MP Fingerprint ID MIUI 9"

Original refers to Chinese version, both Original and Global are in the title,

given that this is almost £30 cheaper than on the Xiaomi Online Store,

think this is the Chinese version.

Not sure, but as mentioned in my post its not clear, I'm not sure where you stand with aliexpress with a mis-sold item, as far as xiaomi goes they make solid phones.

It has B20 according to the specs so if that is the case definitely the Global Version. The use of the word ORIGINAL on Chinese e-commerce sites normally means a GENUINE product and not a fake.

I don't think so, there's definitely a noticeable difference between 2 and 3GB, for every day use, I don't play a lot of games on my phones so there could be a difference there.

I agree. If a person uses a bit of care it's not needed.
The only time I have damaged my screen in 10years or so of touch screen phones is when I sat on it and the best screen protector in the world would have been useless in that scenario.
I've had a few light scratches on the screen a few times when I have come to selling the phone. That's the only time I've noticed them and had to knock off a few quid to appease the buyer. I'd rather lose a few quid after a year of use than have a protector on for a year.
With ANY purchase from a Chinese seller, ignore the headline description and go by the detailed description; this is what will count with Ali Express if you make a claim. I have been caught out in the past - sellers will put in anything they think will get a search "hit" in the title.

Stick to the chinapost option and the chances of a customs charge are extremely low.

I have not come across anything that needs the 3GB yet, the only reason for buying the pricier version is to have more internal storage for all the games and apps you might want to install; 16GB is too small these day, 32GB is fine for most people, but if you want a million apps and games installed, the 64GB might be useful.

I've used them along with a decent TPU case with every iPhone I've owned since the 3GS upto my current X, come selling time after 11 months of use once removed the phone is totally pristine, box fresh meaning top dollar re-sale value. Its not just that, once or twice they've save my phone from a pretty nasty screen mark - I recommend matte versions, they look better and dont scratch up as easily as the normal glossy types.

I dropped my works samsung a5 from about a foot high getting out of the car, it was in a flip case which came off as it hit the ground, it cracked the screen.
the cost of a new a5 screen is about £100 if I do it myself or about £160 if I get someone else to do it.

If you're phone landed on the screen corner or edge I don't think a screen protector would have saved it.
