just received mine today. came via DPD priority EU line. didn't get a charge

I just found this for £128 from MI global store from Aliexpress with 3-8 days delivery from DHL and guaranteed no customs and VAT duty. Is there any catch? Would that not be a safer bet? £9 more but faster delivery, guaranteed no customs and based on people comments here Aliexpress have slightly better reputation/customer service.

Great price, cheapest it's ever been I think

Thanks Op. Just purchased this via Quidco. get £4 something back hopefully.
Thanks @CosmicAero .Was confused what to choose to avoid the custom charge
and your post really helped and selected the same.

what makes you think that taxes etc are not applicable from Ali?
They quote 20-40 days delivery so it is also shipped from China.

Hi how long did yours take. I'm still waiting for mine from gearbest. Shipped on 15th November by British priority mail. I've been given a tracking number but no way to track

I'm a bit confused as to the various models being posted here and can't decide which one to get!

Is there an easy to follow comparison chart to compare the various Xiaomi Mi phones currently available?

32560373-oMcoG.jpgNo customs duty advertised and I think DHL delivery was specified 3-8 days

4gb ram 64gb rom global version is the one you want. This deal is a good price, ordered one for my wife last week for slightly more. Tempted by this deal myself as an upgrade to my Vodafone smart ultra 6 which is still going strong after 2 years.

anyone recommend a case for this?

mine took 25 days to arrive with DPD , longer than gearbest normally takes. no customs though so happy.

Took 15 days by DPD using the EU priority line. Mine dispatched on the 11th and DPD didnt update till yerterday. Was getting worried. Gearbest use 17track.net/ Chineese site but can be translated to English. When you get the email saying it's been dispatched you get the code of the carrier. Mine was DPDUK2 which was DPD.

Hmm the tracking number provided by gearbest seem to work on yodel website bit all it says is data unavailable

Received mine a few days ago. Ordered on 10th November and got it in 23rd November - took 13 days (9 working days) through priority shipping GB with yodel . No custom fees and fairy fast delivery. They even stick a UK plug adaptor in!amazing phone I got it in black for 129 ish . This price is a bargain

Haa I'm in the exact same boat! Ultra 6 is still battling away but starting to get a bit sluggish and the battery on the Note 4 does seem dreamy.

code expired?

That one isn't specifically designed for this phone and may block the IR blaster. You'll see a lot of comments on previous threads for this phone, saying to get Redmi Note 4X cases instead. Explanation here: hotukdeals.com/com…899

Some cases are designed to fit both the original Mediatek and newer Snapdragon housing, which would look like this on a RN4 Global Version

However, if you get one designed only for Redmi Note 4, then it won't fit Global Version because the cutout for the mic on the original RN4 won't be big enough for new IR blaster position (beside the mic) on Snapdragon RN4.

Thanks dreadzone101.. will look into the link you gave and investigate further. It for my mum
sonot sure she will use the IR blaster but better to get the case that fits and allows her to use it.
Appreciate your advice. Thanks

On AliExpress, you can sort search results by order count. The ones with high order count will usually have lots of feedback and customer photos which can help. Depending on the case style, there could be more fitment issues like this< due to the back camera being shifted up slightly, so you should get one that is designed to fit, even if IR blaster won't be used.

Thanks will check Ali express. I think she will prefer the flip cases as that's her current case but when I got a flip case for my redmi Note 3, as soon as you closed it, the buttons would be pressed.

Beware - I ordered this phone in black on the 26th Oct.
I have just received a totally different phone.

My issues with the phone I received are -
a) It is not what I ordered.
b) It will not work with 4G on my UK provider(O2/Giffgaff) as there is no B20 support.
c) The screen is 5.15” vs 5.5”
d) It is the wrong colour(I ordered black, I received gold).
e) There is no Micro SD card support(the one I ordered had up to 128GB support)
f) The Ram is 3GB vs 4GB
g) There is no IR(infrared support)
h) The back camera is 12mp vs 13mp
i) The front camera is 4mp vs 5mp
j) The CPU is quad(4*1.3ghz) core vs octa(8*2.0ghz) core
k) USB type C vs Micro USB

Gearbest have offered me two options -

1) I post the phone back to them at my own (considerable)expense. Once they have received the phone then they will refund me into my Gearbest Wallet(as store credit, i.e. not a real refund!!!).
2) Keep the item and accept a partial refund of 20USD into my Gearbest Wallet as store credit.

You can get "smart cover" flip cases for auto wake/sleep if the phone has that function. The sensor which controls it was something else that changed position compared to original RN4 so you'd need a RN4X smart cover. Here's an official Xiaomi one< and a Nilkin one< which would both work. At 2:50 of this video< you can see the Nilkin one working after being enabled it in settings.

3rd option - Open a PayPal dispute. I know that people have ordered phones with no issues, but your experience is why I'll only buy cheap stuff from Gearbest.

Thanks for all your help. Will look around tomorrow

The Mi5s? A few others who bought the RN4 from Gearbest got that too
hotukdeals.com/com…422

The processor spec doesn't look right though? Mi5s is SD821 Quad-core (2x2.15ghz & 2x1.6ghz) and is twice as powerful in terms of benchmarks<

I mentioned this to one of the others who received it. You could sell it on eBay for more than you spent on the RN4:
ebay.co.uk/itm…623
ebay.co.uk/itm…607
Overall it's a more powerful & more expensive higher tier phone despite its downsides compared to RN4.
