  • Good deal. Can you do a bundle deal on the Grey which includes case and tamper screen protector? Like the Gold package B

  • Looks like a banging phone. Pity no NFC. Getting more and more likely my next phone will be a Redmi phone though. :O

    • It's about AU 242.43 (Converted on their site)

    • I'd wish more of these phones had NFC so I can use mobile pay.

    • Yeah my son has the redi note 2 and the build quality is great, am thinking of this as an upgrade for him for the band 28 support …only issue is does the 2nd Sim support 3g4g or only 2 G as 2g is starting to closing down at the end of the year ……so is thus a single Sim phone in 2017 ?

      • I did a quick google and some posters seem to think you can use the second on 3G? :/

        EDIT: Single sim mode works fine. Two sim mode yes, 4g and 2G. :(

  • Don't you need to have AUD in title?

  • I thought the version with Band 28 was called the Special Edition.

    • I thought it's the Taiwan version :/

    • +6 votes

      Special Edition, Global Edition and Taiwan Edition are all the same. It's just easier to say Global Edition as it has greater 4G support than any other version.

      • But I have a Global Edition that doesn't have band 28.

        • +1 vote

          Then it wasn't the Taiwan version. Likely a Chinese phone with the Global ROM.

        • @Clear: That's my point exactly, you're advertising this as having Band 28, but calling it Global version. But the Global version is just the Snapdragon (SD) version and DOES NOT have Band 20 & 28. The "Special Edition" has the extra bands and is 2mm longer. Your description calling it GLOBAL and the listed dimension (150mm) show that it's just the normal SD version.
          (Prove me wrong and I'll remove the neg)

          @Spectator: I see your point now. I've updated the title and description to say Special Edition instead of Global.

        • @Clear: Ok, but for the record I'd still be hesitant to purchase from the title on your actual site. (If I needed to buy one)

          Not targeting you, just that there's been a history of multiple sites listing incorrect specs, so always good to be cautious.
          (Having trouble removing the neg btw)

          @Spectator: This is the 3rd deal on the B28 phone and no complaints.

          Also reporting is for incorrect titles. Not negging ;)

        • @Clear: I didn't report.


          @Spectator: What I mean is. You can't neg for an incorrect title. That's what report is for.

      • @Clear: The Special Edition and Taiwan Edition are the same. The Global is not however.

      • Will the mi5 come out with a b28 version?

    Dear rep,

    Sorry to hijack this thread (just in case you are not monitoring the other one) but I ordered this phone in gold in combination with case and protector package on 2/9/2016 and paid for DHL shipping.

    Got an email today that package has been sent out by registered mail and will be 15-30 days in delivery.

    Can you look into it? Sent you a PM.

    • +3 votes

      Thanks. I've passed it onto customer service.

      • I have sent them an email too. What if the package is already in transit?

        Anyone else with the same experience?

      • I ordered on 1st Sept and still "Processing". I was hoping the phone could arrive this week but I guess that's not the case.


          More stock on the gold arrived today. It will be shipped out this week.

          To everyone responding to my post, and to the rep - my sincere apologies. It looks like I made 2 purchases with Geekbuying on the same day and forgot about the 2nd minor purchase (that I did not pay for DHL postage). The email I received is related to the second purchase and not for the phone.

          Regarding the phone order placed with DHL postage - checking the login status still has it at payment confirmed (processing).

          Again sincere apologies to Geekbuying. I am happy to be punished for the mistake :-)

    • ordered gold package with case and protector on 31st still "Processing".

      how is yours ordered few days later got shipped first?

      why GeekBuying doesnt ship orders based on order date? this is not right at all..

    • Chase it up.
      I order by dhl too….arrived after 10 days I think in bris

  • I'll get this phone when the price falls to AUD$200 in the next quarter.

  • Thought it was cat 4 speeds, but looks like cat 7 according to the description, not bad. Tempered to buy it as a backup phone/hotspot, just wish it was a smaller device.

  • Booo no band 28 for MI max

    • I have got a MI Max for over a month. I am with WW mobile and I cannot complain about the 4G speed even Mi MAX does not have Band 28

  • Wireless charging?

  • When you add coupon code the price goes up then a discount is applied.

    • +2 votes

      That is correct. The phone is already on sale and I asked Geekbuying to reduce it further for OzBargain.


      Is that your reason for negging the deal?

  • +13 votes

    How about shipping the previous orders before posting new deals. Still waiting mine to be shipped from 10 days ago.

  • if the Mi Max had the note 3 pro bands its instant trigger

    • Same , no band 28 , no buy ……The carriers are investing all their effort into band 28 ….why be without it.

  • Any Dual Active SIM phones?

  • Can the redmi note 3 pro be rooted?

  • thanks. LOL at the price for the RN3 going from $242 and when coupon applied it goes UP to 250.51 then a $13.47 discount applied. Its a $5 discount really.

    • +5 votes

      Well yeah that's because it's already on sale. I just asked for it to be reduced even further.


    These are great prices, but I thought you guys could have come up with SD 652 version of Mi Max instead of SD 650 version of Mi Max. Or this is because there is no Official Global Version of SD 652 Mi Max?

    • +1 vote

      Yep. I could probably still get it discounted though.

      • Is there a grey 652 edition? Because everywhere i look all i see are gold and pink phones. Which i am not keen on ( i run all my phones naked, as god intended. So fixing it with a different coloured case isn't an option).

    • the SD652 version cost substantial more than the sd650 variant though, would be nice to see deal on that!


        Yeah, that would be nice. SD 652 is nearly fast as SD 810 and it is A LOT more power efficient than the SD 810 which was plagued with overheating issues. It must be 32GB though, there isn't any Global Stable Rom for 64GB/128GB.

        • Yup, and only the 64GB/129GB come with SD 652. It looks like either they'll take a long time, or not at all, to release a global variant of Mi Max with SD652.

    • No, I do not think so. My Mi Max purchased from Everbuying a month ago had SD652 Octa-core 1.8GHZ processor with 64G ROM. It is running on MIUI Global 7.4 Stable system based on Android 6.0.1. Unfortunately, MIUI 8 only support to MI MAX 32G version, I have not got MIUI 8 available to be downloaded for my phone.

  • Ordered the grey from Geekbuying for a friend on 25/08 during the presale. Paid for EMS shipping (7-15 bus days quoted shipping time). It was shipped 02/09, received today in regional Vic. Although the EMS tracking is still not showing up. Anyway, took longer than hoped to ship (still within their specified 7 business days - it was no longer showing as presale, but knew stock was not coming until 30/08), but pleased with the fast shipping. DHL to here would have been ridiculously expensive (I think $85 or so?), but EMS was definitely well worth the ~$11.

    • does EMS delivery pass onto Australia Post to send via Express Post?

      • +1 vote

        When I last used EMS (~8 months ago) they did once it reached Australia.

      • It says eParcel. I just had a look, I wasn't home and it's not for me, but it has an eParcel sticker on it and has a couple of DHL stickers on it too. Still says EMS Speedpost.

        I can track it from here (not much detail, just received/departed facility): http://www.speedpost.com.sg so it must have been EMS shipping, but I guess they must use DHL and transfer to eParcel. DHL charge $30 extra to deliver to here because it's rural according to them (within Express Post network). Maybe DHL gives them a discount rate because they're just giving to AusPost, so no going to addresses or worrying about redeliveries etc? Anyway, I'm not sure how it all works. I'm just guessing. But the stickers on it are DHL and eParcel.

        Also seems to have shipped from Singapore? I thought they were shipping from Hong Kong.

        • Pretty sure it is shipped out of Hong Kong via Singapore post. (Which means your parcel was shipped from HK to Singapore, then from Singapore to Australia.) Quite a number of HK and Chinese sellers do that for 2 reasons: Singapore post is more reliable and also because of varying policies of shipping batteries via Airmail.

  • Can we not get Mi5 International Edition with 64 or 128 GB memory in built. I am after a phone which has both - more memory and also dual Sim functionality. Not either this or that. Thanks!
