can you only buy it from the realme site or are there other sites
how about other EU countries? why they are not there, not possible to order? when it will be available for order?
Taxes, taxes..., 12 Nov 2019Hmmm... Strange thing.
There are different VAT rates in different EU counties, sometimes diff... moreJust import at lowest rate (17%) and then adjust the final prices for the different VAT rates.
They probably charged at the highest rate (25%) for all countries.

Mu... moreOh my gosh, is it all bloatware apps?
Why do this the Realme? Why?!
Then they must be deleted the first time!
Taxes, taxes..., 12 Nov 2019Hmmm... Strange thing. There are different VAT rates in different EU counties, sometimes diff... moreNope. If you order something from Europe with delivery to Europe, VAT is paied only by shipper in local country. Inbound country's vat does not matter. This is for european union. Ofcourse there are some (not many) europe countries that are not in EU but if it states europe delivery, then you pay nothing from europe to europe
Hmmm... Strange thing.
There are different VAT rates in different EU counties, sometimes difference is quite big, i.e. 17% in Luxembourg and 23% in Poland. Price in this Realme on-line shop remains the same, no matter where buyer lives. It makes one wonder whether their prices include VAT? Is there a risk that buyer will have to pay VAT locally?
Wishlegs, 12 Nov 2019And what about the pre-installed bloatware apps?!App Market (maybe gone?)
Opera web browser
Screen Recorder (maybe gone?)
None of these take up any considerable amount of space, and should for the most part have no reason to run in the background either. Except if you sign into facebook, game space etc.
And of course google's apps
If you are from uk and order the real x2 pro with 128gb and 8gb of ram, the phone comes with a 3 pin uk plug 50w charger in the box.
Main issue with their scheme is the exclusive colour/spec/uk&eu versions. Also because of this, their much advertised 50W charging and unavailability of their Super Vooc charger in EU is a really anti-climactic situation. If you don't get your region's charger or it breaks you're left with mediocre fast-charging speeds.
And what about the pre-installed bloatware apps?!

There seems to be nothing to stop you from ordering a high end one for use in the UK, the only difference is that it comes with a EU plug, so the solution would be to just buy a UK adapter or use a UK - EU mains plug adapter.
By the time this is available in all of Europe, most people will have moved on. For even more incredible value go for the universally available Mi 9T Pro instead for about 315 Euro incl taxes (eglobal)..
