Use code 11bgnote41 to bring price down by £11,77. You can choose either black or gold color, the price stays the same and the code actually works. I already have this phone and this is a steal at this price, great value.

The earlier deal had expired when i tried to buy one 4 hours ago,or rather the discount code had expired as it was only good for 500 units to sell.

Been torn between this and the new one that's due out.A couple of things I'm still not sure about on this model:- Is it quite straightforward to get this set up and running with Banking Apps?- Will it receive updates? Will I even need updates?- Can anyone who owns this model confirm that it can support split (dual screen)?, I read somewhere that installing an app called button mapper enables this on certain miui versions.The other thing I was unsure about was how a company like Banggood are for warranty support, but for a sub £100 phone I don't think it matters a great deal (maybe closer to the £200 mark it matters more for me).


I've been using a Xiaomi phone for just over a year so can probably answer some of these.

You can install pretty much anything from Google Play on it and it works like a regular UK phone. The only often unfamiliar thing to experienced Android users is the MIUI interface and 99% of people hate it. Installing Nova launcher or Google Now will get rid of that though.

I bought a £180 Xiaomi phone over 12 months ago and it still receives a system update roughly every couple of months. It downloads them OTA usually during the night and was upgraded to the newest version of Android that way. No drama, no hassle.

Compare that to the Samsung phone that I had 4 years ago that cost double the price and only got one update during its lifetime and it's no contest IMHO.
2 folks purchased the phones on the back of this post says it was a worth posting imho

What's really not needed is your pointless post. These banggood deals expire in a matter of hours/minutes. "Reposts" are pretty much essential to keep up.

From where do people keep getting these weird and wonderful discount codes?
Purchased so thanks op... bought through topcashback and final price came to £97.85p..
What phone can i get in the UK for that? Anyone
For some reason my cashback tracked at 7.57% on a purchase price of £103.07?

I think you mentioned the V30 in another Xiaomi thread and then wondered about Xiaomi using edge to edge displays?

They will be unveiling the successor to their Mi Mix 'bezel-less' phone, in a few days:

gsmarena.com/xia…php

It looks similar to the design of S8+ and V30, minus the top bezel. It will be high spec too. The Mi Note 3 might also be revealed alongside it too. Another 'flagship'. Wait a while, scrap the V30 plan and instead of getting a taster for Xiaomi with their mid range, just go head first and get a flagship (not being serious btw)

Haha, i would never spend £300+ on an import from bangood, it's a good job that you was joing. However i did do some research into that and the phone does look stunning. I also read it's for China only.
Does anyone know whether this uses the MIUI interface or a vanilla Android? Thanks in advance!

The majority of Xiaomi phones are China only at the beginning. A few never get released outside of China or even receive Global ROM. Uncertain what will be the case for Mi Mix 2 though. I think their Mi6 flagship got a wider release compared to its predecessors so they could potentially do the same for the Mi Mix 2. If it does occur though, it'll take quite a while after initial release and still be as costly.

It uses Miui v8, but you can put something like google now or whatever if you don't fancy the UI apparently. It's not a big deal to put new launchers or skins/whatever on phones as it's not chnaging the underlying OS. I think Xiaomi phones normally have a pretty good following on mod forums too, so should be a few ROMs around that you could swap too, but that does require unlocking bootloader etc that will invalidate warranty, but as these are coming from china anyway there's not much chnace people will try to claim on them, so do what you like to it, it's very hard to brick phones these days. Even if they seem completely bricked with loading issues etc, they can usually be flashed back to stock or another ROM easily enough.
I've just bought one of these myself, and if I don't like the UI I will be changing it to something better suited, but TBH most UIs nowadays have some great features, but it's dealers choice
Here ya go, snapdragon page (which these use) forum.xda-developers.com/red…ent

This forum may be of more use to you though for now if you want to learn soem stuff about the phone, like how to unlcok bootloader/flash new recovery eg TWRP, and how to flash a new ROM to it etc.forum.xda-developers.com/red…-to

Been thinking about this for a few days now. Been torn between this and the new one that's due out.

A couple of things I'm still not sure about on this model:

- Is it quite straightforward to get this set up and running with Banking Apps?
- Will it receive updates? Will I even need updates?
- Can anyone who owns this model confirm that it can support split (dual screen)?, I read somewhere that installing an app called button mapper enables this on certain miui versions.

The other thing I was unsure about was how a company like Banggood are for warranty support, but for a sub £100 phone I don't think it matters a great deal (maybe closer to the £200 mark it matters more for me).

Will there be import/custom charges buying this?

Also is this as good as the Moto G5..thoughts guys?

Hi. I use banking apps on my mi max which is the same UI. There is something called second space also which is like having 2 phones. Can't comment on warranty support as got mine from AliExpress. Hope this helps. Mine being a global ROM it receives updates OTA.

I dislike the iOS style UI on it and the fact it doesn't allow apps to be moved to microSD. Apart from that I don't really have a problem with it. I use it with Google Now as the launcher.

What about build quality? I am looking at getting this or the Mi Max 2 I know the price is low but even huawei started off making cheap handsets but now they are out of my price range. I am very close to ordering a xiaomi phone as an upgrade for my note 3 but i need something that is going to last.

Build quality on the Mi Max 2 is supposedly excellent. I'm not completely sure about this model though. Tbh though it can't be much worse than the build quality on Samsung phones and iPhones these days. They aren't known for being particularly robust.
The code no longer works - 1000 uses max. Let's sit tight for the next one.

Mi MAX 2 has way better build quality. The two cant be compared.

The original note 4 has amazing build quality, iphone-esque, but the re-released global snapdragon version has plastic caps on top and bottom, cheaper metal used, and the whole thing creaks like a staircase from minimal pressure.

If you really want to keep with the note series, the Redmi Note 5 will be out in a couple of weeks.
