My wife's Samsung j3 is giving up the ghost. Heard good things about the Xiaomi brand. So I jumped and bought the Red Mi 5 32 gb off Honourbuy . Hopefully someone knows if I made a good decision.

Had the Mi Band 2, ended up leaving it behind me in the gym last night so decided to order the Bip. Hearing good things about the battery life, and was very happy with the Band 2, especially the alarm.

Re: ordering the Bip, I see a regular version, a Youth version and a Lite version...

Yet they all seem to be the same device.

I have the Mi band 2 and love it. Use the app on a Mi phone and it works brilliant - Lots of info in there .
My favourites are the alarms , the alert to start walking , the sleep pattern , and the heart rate .
I get at least 2 months out of a full battery . Mine might be a basic model as I only paid 27 dollars for it on Ali .

I know they're not held in the highest regards round these parts but I bought mine (Bip) from GearBest based on an offer I found on HUKD...got it for E53.50 all in.

Is https://www.kimovil.com/en/ broken for anyone else?

Can not seem to filter by price or anything else at present. Tried desktop chrome and firefox.

Yeah. Filters are not working. Searched Xiaomi and many others thrown in the results.

Must have been a hiccup with Kimovil, back working again.

Ulefone Power 5. It's a 13,000 mAh smartphone



This is the Ulefone Power 5. It's a 13,000 mAh smartphone
capable of close to a week of battery life.
It's the highest capacity smartphone I've ever featured on Unbox Therapy.
