2 Year old phone with poor battery life, Android 5 and an inefficient Mediatek Chip, get the Redmi Note 4 Global instead for about £110 (before 8% cashback) and get a much better deal.

    7.3 on trust pilot so not great but comparable to gearbest (7.4) and DX (6.8)

    Correct me if I'm wrong but a redmi note 4x is £115 this is £75. a redmi note 4a is about the same hence the comparison

    I agree a redmi note 4 is better is a lot of ways (better processors and fingerprint sensor) perhaps you should check out the other deal I posted for the mi4c that's less than a note 4 but with a Snapdragon 808 and less than £100 delivered

    Had one of these for a year and hated it. MIUI is love it or hate it - I hated it. As its mediatek choice of custom roms is virtual nil and then they are buggy reworks of the official ROM. Couldn't wait to be shot of it.

    IMO the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 3GB RAM/32GB ROM Global Edition (so all the UK network bands included) for 112 quid (less 8% quidco) from Aliexpress.

    aliexpress.com/ite…540

    I recommend you order a tempered glass screen protector (these fit perfectly on my wife's Redmi Note 4). Make sure you choose the Note 4 Global Version.

    aliexpress.com/ite…u0R

    I also recommend MOFI flip cases (they have a thin sheet of metal impregnated into the cover to protect the screen)

    This one definitely fits my wife's phone fine. Looks great quality and a choice of colours. Cheap as chips as well.

    aliexpress.com/ite…QPk

    That lot should come in comfortably below 125 quid as long as you don't get charged import duty.

    Depends on the card provider. Mine certainly will help under £100 (Amex).
    Most of the Bands are Chinese TDD bands which don't work in UK and only in China. You are buying a tablet not a phone. This phone will definitely not work at 4G in Uk

    Section 75 is not dependent on the credit card issuer, though only applies to certain purchases of £100 to £30000. Amex may well help though not under S75 of the Consumer Credit Act

    Is it that difficult for you to understand that the lack of one 4G band does not mean the phone will not work on 4G nor does it make the phone a tablet.

    Had this phone for 18 months or so. Most of the time I've been running the weekly ROM from xiaomi.eu.

    Solid phone, camera isn't great unless you're in bright sunlight. Forget it if you want to take a photo indoors.

    Currently seem to have battery drain on the most recent EU ROM. I may try going back to the Global ROM to see if it's any better.

    The one I've got doesn't have Band 20. Works fine on EE based networks and 3 mobile based networks. But without B20 you're snookered if you're on O2 and want 4G (although other G's will work).

    For the price difference I'd be inclined to get the Note 4.

    Fair review thanks one quick question are you still using the original battery ? There are 'compatable' 4000mah ones around have you tried these ?

    I do sometimes wonder if you are a google bot. So this a tablet not a phone due to no Band 20? Do you realise how stupid you make yourself out to look? Do you posses the embarrassment gene? If you do it needs checking for signs of life.

    Not sure if you are aware but there is an official MOfi store on aliexpress, case is the same price as your link, but no harm in perhaps using the official store: mofi.aliexpress.com/sto…111

    Why would you buy any phone running Mediatek junk nevermind one two years old and stuck on Android 5.0, it's only £30 or so more to get the Note 4 Snapdragon version, gain a significantly better battery lasting over double the length, faster, more stable, Android 7.

    Got to be crazy to get this deal.
