Was wondering what your take was on this phone. Seems really good for the price. I know Xiaomi are good but the Android One and stock android make it all the more tempting. Could really do with an upgrade from my Moto G3 aswell as it's starting to act the pr***. Is this the best phone out there in this price range or does anybody know of anything better? Also would you consider it not "officialy" being available in Ireland to be a problem?
Looks a great phone.
The xiaomi 5x is exact same phone without stock Android and it's cheaper apparently you can install stock Android to it so might be worth getting that.
Thinking about this as an upgrade for my RedMi 3S Prime just for a change. Not sure I'd like the bigger screen though. I'm also wondering if Mi5 might be better as if love NFC back and not too concerned about bands living near Dublin. That said, I love the idea of going back to normal android... Anyone pre ordered?
Looks very good yep
Its actually cheaper than the 5X now can be got on presale for €183 but its a 45 day wait!
I might pick one up just to give the dual cameras a try.
HK stock means it's coming from Hong Kong? How likely are you to get stung by customs?
I'm thinking of getting this as an Xmas present for my OH, to replace her Vodafone Smart Ultra 6, which I imagine it will be a good upgrade from. But how does it compare to a Nexus 5x, which I have? Significant difference in the Chipsets/CPUs?
Looks very good indeed. I see it also supports 4g bands in Ireland which was previously an issue with some xiaomi models in the past.
All it seems to be missing is nfc and an FM radio. If neither of them are important to you it looks like a great purchase.
Stock android, camera reviews seem to be good also.
Forgot to mention that Honourbuy have available for pre order it with EU shipping so you should not get caught for customs that way.
anybody end up ordering one of these from one of these websites? Had issues with gearbest etc in the past so hesitant to order from one! Looks like a great device though and can't find a different alternative to buy from . Which site would you guys recommend?
Haven't purchased the miA1 but i would recommend HK Goldway on Aliexpress.
I have one and I ordered it from HK Goldway. Took about 8 days to get to me. No customs either if you pay for DHL Express delivery. Very happy with it so far, although it's only been a couple of days.
Bought from Banggood, 206 euro + 4 euro parcel motel, 10 days with standard delivery and it was in my locker. No customs either, happy days.
When did you order/receive it?
I ordered two of them from Geekbuying (paid €184 each) about a month ago and it hasn't even shipped yet. The missus is getting more and more annoyed every day waiting as her current phones screen is broken and wrecking her head!
Are you happy with it?
thanks for the replies guys!
