I want to buy the 3GB Ram model, but dont want any chinese apps etc.
I heard there is a global version but im very sceptical about buying.

Is there anywhere I can buy it from that I dont have to mess about or is too risky?


No matter where you buy it from I'd check the software and probably change it, so many sellers load on dodgy software that will never have updates, is full of problems and at worse will have viruses in. I have read that HK Goldway and Top-one on Aliexpress ship with the official global software though. Also ibuygou is supposed to be good.

mine shipped with global software but still had bloatware, I just reinstalled the global os and all was fine

I got a xiaomi redmi 3 from gearbest and it had no Chinese software on whatsoever, packaging was also marked as low value item to avoid import tax

Whatever rom you get your can't do better than putting the Xiaomi eu one on
