geewaiho, 12 May 2017Once xiaomi start selling in the west, I can imagine the prices won't remain as cheap. The Mi6 is already "not that cheap" compared to the Mi5 and Mi5s because they are improving the materials and build quality, but the redmi and redmi note are cheap enough to compete even if the price gets higher once they officially launch the brand in more countries. At least that's what is happening in Mexico, and they are offering a warranty valid for the whole latinamerica, not just Mexico. And they'll probably expand to North America from that point in the near future.

Gearbest, for example, even have wharehouses in the U.K. So it's not as risky as years before. Not as reliable as buying one in India, where Xiaomi is even opening shops... or Mexico, where they just have launched the brand... But that wil change shortly.

Imagine having to send in your faulty handset to China and the wait, seems like a massive hassle. I buy my phones either through carrier, an accredited uK retail or ebay. EBay Is fully protected so not an issue for me..

The real problem is that there are too many fake Xiaomi devices out there! The statistics are scary! So yes, it's more reliable to buy brands like Samsung... However there are fake ones too, so no matter what brand you choose, you have to be careful about where you buy your next phone.

Am in kenya brought A5 from Sweden so any help of network locked sim card inserted
First day with my new phone, the cameras, finger print scanner, and even touch recognision on the screen are jokes - they might be acceptable for a phone a quarter the price.
Avoid this phone.
I'm using the gold version of galaxy a5 2017 as my basic fone.perfect fone for gamers, YouTube lover, multimedia lover. Almost flagship fone in midrange package. Only one complain is camera. Not seems like 16mp.
Cannot Encrypt Device... meaning I cannot read my corporate email on phone due to security restrictions. Should be a normal run-of-the-mill option on a higher end market phone!!
It's battery performance has improved, but still is ridiculous. A grave issue that have always have haunted LG, ever since the great G2. This is the only place they could stand their ground over the S8. Camera, screen and performance will be worse by default, price will be on LG's side in the near future. It seems that with the bundled AKG headphones and the exclusive to Korea DAC, Samsung will win the sound department too. But LG could beat them on the battery front, such a shame this phone won't have any advantage...
