Xiaomi Mi Max Phablet 4GB RAM 128GB Storage - US$242.36 (~AUD315) shipped @ Banggood

250
Marchsale10

A true FABlet, good price from a reputable seller. 6.44" of goodness.

Great build quality and looks premium with a nice $3 case from here
http://s.aliexpress.com/nE3EjMJV

No Global ROM but doesn't seem to be an issue judging from the forums. Won't hop on Bandwagon 28 either.

PayPal protection and Banggood reputation is the swaying point for me after my ill experiences dealing with AliExpress and their dodgy protection which is lopsided in sellers favour even after sought evidence is provided.

CashRewards will bring it down to an almost even $300.

Mod Edit: Referral link removed. No referral links from stores different to main deal (ie. Banggood)

    Should mention this also has sd652 which is fair faster than 650 in regular versions

    anyone care to compare this to huawei honor note 8?performance,reliability,build quality,never used xiaomi,but this is a good price,using mate 7 now,happy with the fit and finish,looking for a bigger screen phone,narrowed down to honor note 8 or this.both have big screen which is what I want,both have good battery.
    what Im looking for is:fast phone(no gaming,mainly web,video chat,video streaming),stable system,GOOD fit and finish,not too fussed about camera,

      The Huawei has a higher res screen. Hard to compare cpu as they're different, but you might find a comparison site somewhere. Not sure if either do all 4G frequencies in Aust.

    This phone is awesome for the period I had mine before going to the Mi Mix

  •  

    This tablet even has phone functionality. Probably should add that to the description.

    got the 32GB version for dad, great device, the screen res is more than enough for most, that's iphone level already, size not very good for pocket in pants.. battery can last upto 3 days and more than enough for one day heavy use from morning to night after hours of photo taking

      I'm thinking of the same for my mum though. Is this global rom comment something to worry about? Will be switching her from my old Samsung Note 3.

          Whats your reason?

          @028:
          Well, it depends I guess. Got money to burn and just don't care? Wait for Note 8 or get some other high end/cost phone in the $700 - $1000 area. Mi Max is just an amazing phone for the price. The size, quality and just overall experience are amazing. Cameras are OK and battery life is very good. What I love though is the size. However, it depends on what you want. I bought one myself, loved it so much, bought my wife one as well. She thinks it is great as well.

    There is a global ROM for this phone though… http://en.miui.com/download-302.html#458

    It's called Xiaomi Mi Max Prime

    Or am I mistaken?

    •  

      or, nick name "Halogen" and 32GB version for "Hydrogen".

      Please advise what is Global Rom? What is the disadvantage of not having global rom? Thinking to buy one but bit confused! !! If the global rom is must have…can we flash it ourself? Once flashed does it have ota update or need to update manually each time?
