    hopefully your right mate, it's about time a big Chinese brand made it over here, the big boys need to seriously lower their prices ! they are a disgrace now........ :evil:

    I used eglobalcentral for my last one
    have to admit though I'm slightly underwhelmed with the new mi mix 3. think they've missed a few glaring things out if I'm honest. still a great piece of kit, but the cynic in me thinks they are holding back on the tech to drip feed us to keep upgrading....

    I am after a new phone, can anyone recommend one for about 200 quid? I am not clued up on the latest handsets as I have had a work phone for about 3 years. Cheers

  4. I'm looking to upgrade from my iPhone 5 - it's been a faithful servant for over 6 years but is starting to fall apart now.

    Any recommendations on any Chinese phones with a screen size of 5 inches max? The iPhone 5 has a 4 inch screen and is fine, but I'm struggling to find a phone without a massive screen.

    You need to find out which 4G bands / Frequency EE use (that's who provides BT's mobile network), then check the phone for compatibility.

    The original Oneplus One had a similar issue.

    I have an Honor 9 on O2 (Tesco) and its spot on.

    I'm using this one

    That's a bit of an issue, as they tend to be larger than 5 inches, more heading towards phablet sixe. Can you cope with an extra half an inch? Oooer! :lol:

  10. Smaller ones have always suited me better. ;)

    Well that's a shitter then. I find bigger phones a bit annoying. What about something that's 5.5 inches? Even something crap these days will be brilliant to me, even my iPhone 5 still does everything I want it's just starting to fail.

    Anyone have the Huawei P20 Lite? I'm seriously considering getting one.

    I’ve got a £300 iPhone SE for my proper phone like, can’t really see any difference in performance or quality to be honest.

    A lot of the bigger screen phones might not be as big as you’d think. Most have little to no bezel now so the screen is much larger but the device itself isn’t much bigger

    I got one earlier. My last 2 phones have been Sony Xperias & I'm usually a creature of habit, but I was told to go for the Huawei in 2 different shops, so took the advice. Just waiting on the unlock code today come through & I'm up & running.

    A few months on, has anyone picked up one of the newer Xiaomi models? Thinking about buying one of the poco F1's but there's so many different models i'm struggling to choose one!

    I've got the Xiaomi Pocophone F1. Decent.

    Daughter has a Xiaomi 8 and wife just bought the Xiaomi 9 - seem like excellent pieces of kit and the cameras on both are very good indeed, but I am hardly a phone expert and cutting edge for me is having a colour screen and a game other than snake on a phone.

    my next phone is either the mi mix 3, or the mi 9 (struggling to pick which one, as they both look great pieces of kit, with their own advantages) I'm just waiting till they come down a touch in price, as they do fairly rapidly after a few months of release
