Assuming it still works £5 off with code chkout5 or EBEP5 would be better than the 3%

Indeed, cheapest yet, stunning price & heat duly added
Look like this phone has a lot of software bugs at the current MIUI version, based on the reviews on Youtube. Suggestion to either go for Redmi Note 7 or wait.

I've watched the youtube reviews and agree there are items for Xiaomi to fix but nothing appears to be a major issue. As far as I can tell, there are 3 problems - 1. The notifications bar doesn't always display the notifications; 2. It is about a second to wake from the fingerprint sensor; 3. Swipe movements are not as instantaneous or smooth as you would expect for the processor.

I think these should all be easily resolved in the next firmware update.
Will this work on 02 (800) or vodafone (800) - LTE Network Frequency

Looking to upgrade my girlfriends redmi note 5? Is this good choice to go for in this price range? Or maybe just wait for redmi note 9?
Is there customs duty to add to price

This is an utter bargain, and a good upgrade from the note imo

As this is the global version and not a flashed Chinese version it does have 800. Looks like they screwed up the description.

Not with eglobal, their terms and conditions state that they take care of that and the price you see is the price you pay.
Question is then, this or the 8 Pro? I’d really like NFC as a feature, way more importantly than gaming. Unless this 8T variant is a real thing now?...
If it had NFC it would be by far the best phone for its price. Heat added 🔥🔥
Does this have a headphone jack?
Is this much of an upgrade on the Note 7?
Trilink30/10/2019 13:28

Does this have a headphone jack?


If I read correctly it doesn't
Trilink30/10/2019 13:28

It does, it's at the bottom next to the USB connector.
Tempting this for a kids phone.

There was a leaked photo of the 8T, so it does seem to be real

Not really. Processor isn't much better. Camera is a little better, more versatile

That's about it
@MrSwitch Are phones from eglobal the Global variant unless it says otherwise?
Also, this or note 7?

Yeah, generally, some don't list band 20, but most do have it.

To answer your second question, I'd go for this over the note 7, even with the reported issues, much nicer phone, better processor (albeit a small upgrade)
Decent price decent spec no nfc though

It's currently listed (8T) on eglobal site - not sure they will have stock of it yet though?

Cheers bud. I'm looking for my father in law and this is about the same price as I can get a global RN7. Plus, as you say, any glitches will probably be ironed out when it gets the MIUI 11 update anyway.
tonymcg30/10/2019 14:12

https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/xiaomi-redmi-note-8t-4gb-64gb-dual-sim-grey.htmlI am dubious that they actually have it in stock!


I did see that, but have been burnt by eGlobal before when they don't have stock they never tell you.

Quite happy to order with then as long as it is physical stock for sure...
Thanks for info, bought, just need it to work with Tesco mobile who are on 02

I have messaged them to see what they say back, considering there isn't any actual reviews only rumours I don't think they do..
Thanks bought for daughter.
What cases are folks using?
Bought Airpods from eGlobal 2 weeks ago. Not delivered until this moment, i sent them emails they dont respond. Trying to get hold of their delivery company (Hermes) but got no where.

I guess I have to escalate it to Paypal to get my money back. AVOID eGlobal

I believe it comes with a gel case.

It does, but it doesn't offer great protection - especially the face. Better than nothing though!
