The only problem for this deal with the ROM size of 16gb. It is just not enough for most people these days.

My Axon 7 before I bricked it had 64gb and that was almost full.

Do you mind me asking what you thought of the Axon 7? I'm thinking of getting one (or something similar) for the missus...

Poverty spec phone, but noce colour.

I known many people look at the photos and go "bleh"; but in real life the Xiaomi Rose Gold is rather nice; I had lots of compliments for mine before the wallet case arrived to hide it (£20 cheaper than the black, gold, or silver options at the time).

Is this better than the Leagoo T5c for £75.26 also at GearBest?

I can't see why it has been expired.

I really liked it. I paid something around £330 for it. I listen to lot of stuff on my phone (private recording, music, home recordings, etc) and the sound was absolutely clear. I bought it especially for its sound qualities.

As far as other stuff goes, I had no issues. The videos were nice and clear.

Basically, I had no issues with it. I would definitely recommend it. In fact, I am looking to buy another ZTE phone but much cheaper as I seem to go thru them regularly.

Your usage case is not like "most peoples"

I don't know anyone who has almost 64GB of junk on their phone. Also it has a microSD card slot so not really a problem

My only problem with these Xiaomi phones is I'm not a fan of MIUI, and I don't think there are stock Android ROMs for their devices

That's fine (it is not junk on my phone btw but that is besides the point). I was just making the point that 16gb is is just too low even for 'normal' users. I didn't vote down or up.

But I thought you could buy them for around £170? I'm sure it was on offer recently for that price

The mi A1 has android one not sure what that is its more stock than miui. And Xiaomi is better than leeago less chance of spyware.

So then 5a is this an updated phone for the 4a when can we see note 5 original versions. I am thinking of selling my note 4 for a note 5 if I can get it from Xiaomi mi store my preferred seller and 150 is the most I do for Chinese. It needs to have a 4000ma battery anything less is a deal breaker for me now

You make me wonder how on earth I'm managing currently with 4GB!

That is surprising indeed. All the people I know are on at least 32gb.

"poverty spec phone" - I can't believe I just read those words.

If the world is now "gender neutral" I think it'll be ok to buy a rose gold phone...

"poverty spec phone" - I can't believe I just read those words.



But it IS poverty spec, my 3 year old note 1 has a similar spec; Xiaomi is heading for a major credibility crash; they are spreading themselves thin and not releasing decent phones OR decent OS updates for them.

The last MIUI 8 OS update broke 2.4GHz wifi for many users; that was months ago and it still hasnt been fixed, it also messed up BlueTooth, I have NEVER known Bluetooth be so flaky before.

This is shades of the MIUI 6 blurry camera fiasco.

And dont get me started on the MIUI desktop control centre; that has now been broken for well over a year - and hasnt been updated since 2015.

Maybe a low spec phone but poverty is the wrong word though, I associate poverty with the lack of means to meet basic personal needs such as food, clothing and shelter.

What is the OS, cant see it in the specs

MIUI, which is Xiaomi 's skin on android.

Would this phone support wi-fi calling,I'm currently on EE contract but my phone screen keeps freezing following water damage.wi if calling is a must,recommendations would be highly appreciated.

Aliexpress has several sellers of note 5a at about £71 delivered. Mostly in gold though. This one as an example: aliexpress.com/ite…B=0
