    New phone advice - ZUK Z2 Pro 128gb or similar

    Hi All!
    My contract is up in March (sim only), and my old Sony Z2 is getting a little old so I've been looking at upgrading.

    I like rooting and messing around with them, so I'm not wanting to spend £800 on a Pixel, and I've fallen a bit out of love with Samsung & Sony, which suits me fine as I'd prefer to buy a phone and go back being sim only.

    I've been looking for a new phone and seen good reviews for the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro 128gb which is at my top budget of £300.

    My questions:
    1 - Obviously this is a Chinese phone and would have to come form China, can anyone recommend a seller for this phone?
    2 - Are there any similar alternatives to this phone either UK based or again, Chinese/non-UK?
    3 - If i did get it from China, and obviously I am paying a fair amount, is there anything I need to look out for (should I pay by credit card?, postage choices to avoid duty, warranty issues, etc)

    Thank you!!!

    I've seen the various suppliers, and know that there are certain pit falls. I'll keep looking!

    Have you looked at the Umi Z?

    Thank you for your advice!

    After looking (and my Z2 struggling) I've decided to go for the Oneplus 3T 128gb (from O2).

    You could have bought a Xiaomi redmi note 3 pro + 128GB microSD card for less than £165.
