How do you check it has 20 support and what is it.Thanks


Band 20 is the 800MHz 4g signal that O2 use the other networks use it but they also use other bands so if you use O2 or the piggy back ones like tesco, giffgaff you won't have a 4g signal if you are on another network like EE or 3 you should be ok as band 20 is not their main 4g band. Just check the phone network specs in the description 4G: FDD-LTE B1/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B20

I've seen it quite often where there is a lower price shown, but when you try and select it, it doesn't exist. Did you manage to grab it that price? The blue with the flip for £115 is still a good price.

Got a black Mi A1 in a £3.00 red shell case from Aliexpress :-) and are 3x the price on Amazon UK. (The fingerprint sensor of course is black with me) Everyone thats sees it thinks its striking, and the soft touch sort of rubberised/sliky case makes a great difference in handling. The actual red is even darker than the bottom image. Volume rockers are a wee bit fiddly in operation with the case, may just cut them +/- away, as they still shouldn't be proud of the case edge. Otherwise, phone is working well, but the camera is pretty shi88y in poor light, no complaints for £155 though.

I have no idea but the vat came to £3.66 with the £8 royal mail fee on top.


Looks like they had declared the value as $25ish for vat to work out at £3.66 would have been based on the exchange rate at the time with the current rate being $1.39 to the £ it will need to be declared at $20 or less to be under the vat threshold of £15 you could ask them to put that on the declaration some will some wont. This would only apply if you are unlucky and it gets picked up

What figure did they use to calculate the VAT, $30?

Be wary - the phone on the link is stated as global rom , not global version , but the description states specs of the global version and the chinese version( typical Chinese deception ) . So its not clear what they will send.
Only buy when it states global VERSION - the same seller has a separate listing for that model.

Ahhhhhhh, thanx for that. :-)

I recall hearing a similar story in the wind to that some year's back ...

(I've since forgotten that obviously).

So looks like people in this Country - who do HEAVY orders from various Chinese sites that is (myself at time's included?!, lol), to be kind of more on the ball when it comes to these things then or something?.

By say some weeks beforehand/that moment in time, etc ...

The over excessive advertising of Chinese New Year is very much in the Media even here too like? (so a casual/slight 'nudge' in that regard, is more than just going to be ahead of us all here regardless I guess?, hehehe). :-D

Unlock bootloader (may need to wait 48-72hrs here)2. Flash TWRP3. Boot into TWRP, wipe the device and install your custom ROM of choice and ARM64 Gapps package (Google apps).I use the FireHound ROM which runs Oreo 8.1, there are loads of other choices in the XDA forum;forum.xda-developers.com/redmi-note-4/xiaomi-redmi-note-4-snapdragon-roms-kernels-recoveries--other-developmentEdit - Like Daz said though, MIUI isn't bad at all, perfectly fine for most users and has some neat features.

Don't deal with any of these Asian companies concerning faults, returns etc. Go straight to Paypal and stick to Paypals procedure. If the company asks you to email them, then phone Paypal and they will escalate the case against the company straight away. If its over £100 and you pay by credit card, do a section 75. You will get nowhere and frustrated dealing with these companies if you want your money back.

Done it myself a couple of times - meaning to use Credit card for the protection , then used Paypal out of laziness (saves filling in card no , address etc ) . Holiday deposit and set of golf clubs , luckily all went fine , but I'm more careful now .

Any codes to reduce price?
If your phone died 3 months later, like mine : expect no help, What So ever. Extra warranty is worthless. You send it to Poland ( their eu offices) for fixing and it returns unopened. They will not refund your money or do anything then insisting you send to China to be looked at. Photos, videos, and explanation ignored. Three months without a phone !

Children are sent into mines in Africa for the lithium and other metals to make phones like this.


Lithium mining in Africa only amounts to 20% of world production and almost exclusively from mines in Zimbabwe. Most of the world's lithium is extracted from brine via evaporation. From a mining point of view it is not traditional mining so very unlikely children would be involved as its mainly heavy drilling and pumping equipment that is being used.

The shirt on your back is far more likely to have had child labour involvement than the production of lithium.
I dont think this is the official global version by Xiaomi, it seems like the chinese version.
The seller will open your new sealed phone and flash with a international rom before sending.
So you will not receive in 'sealed box'. Personally I would wait until 'official' Global versions are released shortly.

Read no.3 where it says "Please read the TIPS carefully before placing an order!".....

"3. Please leave us a comment if you want a sealed box. Otherwise we will unseal the box to do "Quality Control" and flash the multi-language ROM for the Chinese version. The original box from manufacturer is sealed. It's only with English and without "Play Store".

They have had some really terrible reviews and being that they are trading using deception, they shouldn't be allowed on here. Sorry OP just my opinion.

Only used geekbuying once and maybe I was unlucky but my experience isn't a good one. Ordered a phone and it never showed up. Currently going through PayPal to claim the money back as I just keep being told "please be patient" by their CS. It's been 3 months!

Banggood on the other hand I've ordered lots from and never had a no show. Usually takes 4 weeks. Sticking with them from now on. £79 on there and worth the extra I would say.

The Xiaomi Reddit thread recommends Banggood and Hong Kong Gateway on Ali Express. £69 from HK Gateway) They say avoid geekbuying.

So buy with caution people!
The 2 times I had issues with China bought stuff I was ok with the customer service. One torch (£35) I sent back to the manufacturer (Nitecore) and they replaced with a new one. Took 3 weeks in all. One tablet lost it's ROM memory and I sent a video and the seller refunded me.

I was tempted to buy this but went with a Redmi Note 5A Prime Note (global version) from aliexpress. It seems a more secure way to purchase something like this, for example, if it doesn't turn up, you will get a refund.

Prime version is also 8 cores (rather than 4 for the normal Note 5A). It's also made in China, not India and has a built in fingerprint reader and takes upto 256GB micro sd (instead of 128GB). Could be some other differences too.

Cost about £88 including shipping.

I wanted something with a big screen to replace my iPhone 5S. I like my iPhone but with iOS11 it's buggy, features I want are now missing. I had a Redmi Note 2 Note and that was superb. I should have kept it and dumped the iPhone.

Exactly. Any issues and you return it. Blackview are a solid Chinese brand that make some robust phones. This one is perfect for everyday use, or backup. It has SD slot so I doubled up the storage. I think it supports higher though.
