    Bloody good deal for the 9T

    • +1 vote

      Originally I felt bad for spending too much on my mi 9t, but then I realised this is the 64gb model. Definitely needs 128gb since it's non expandable.

    Having been burnt before by Geekbuying on stock availability, I just did a live chat with them & they don't have stock of the Mi9T. Apparently it will arrive "in a week". Take from that what you will.

    • -9 votes

      Disappointing you never contacted me regarding your issues here. I'll clarify stock as it definitely should be.

      • +2 votes

        Yes, keep us updated. It's hard to pull the trigger when the stock status is unknown.

      • +2 votes

        Live chat is saying not in stock, was told the same as sinners007 that it will come in stock in a weeks time.

        • -7 votes

          Downvoting is counterproductive (not saying you did it) but there were definitely pcs in-stock when I posted. I'm confirming how much is really left and an exact time frame on more.

          • +10 votes

            @Clear: I didn't down-vote. I asked a simple question about whether you have stock of the deal you are plugging & as live chat explained, you do NOT. When you get us an accurate and honest answer on when there will be stock, people might change their tune. I once bought an "in-stock" item from geekbuying and waited 17 days for it to ship - thus my apprehension and questions.

      •  

        Does this phone has IR blaster like mi9 has?

  •  

    Solid deal on the 9T!!
    Waiting for lineage/pixel experience ROM support before biting the bullet.

  • +1 vote

    so does the 9T have expandable storage?
    doesn't look like it but wanted to confirm.

  •  

    Nice, better than the 9 Se. I wonder if the K20 Pro will be the Poco F2.

    • +3 votes

      Still think the 9 SE is just as good! I got mine for $403 delivered 6gb/128gb rom

      •  

        Oh yeah the 9 SE is still an excellent device for sure. I just wish they had opted for a larger battery in it!

      •  

        Hi mate.Whr did u buy it from as I'm also considering buying 128gb version and was that a global version?
        Thanx

        •  

          Hey mate was during eBay plus weekend, I also had a $50 eBay voucher so that helped too. Don't think you could get it for the same price maybe $450~ pm me if you want the link of the seller I purchased from.

          Yes it's global version

        •  

          I got mine from Toby Deals. Great website and price.

  •  

    How does this compare to the Poco F1?

    •  

      The 845 destroys the 730.
      This screen is better.
      This has NFC.

      •  

        The pop up camera is a bit of a concern.. looks nice and pretty but just another potential source of failure.

        •  

          This is the lower spec K20/9T, not the Pro. Much lower spec as mentioned above. Pro has Snapdragon 855 but the price is much higher.

          No expandable storage is what killed it for me. Finally pulled the trigger on Poco F1. $360 delivered during last weekends eBay Plus deal.

      •  

        No, the 730 and 845 are about on par (the 845 is still slightly more powerful), though the 730 is more efficient.
        Everything else about the Mi 9T/K20 is better than the Poco.

  •  

    Darn…nice deal clear

    My grand total comes to AU$ 486.18 with GKBPHS10.

    Where am I going wrong?

      I based it off the Mastercard/Visa rate which will apply with a currency conversion fee free card. PayPal's own rate is inflated.

    Good phone but 8.8mm thickness is a bit yuck.

    Any deals for 128gb version?
    Thanx

  • +1 vote

    I have the Redmi K20 Pro (~Mi9T pro)
    a few issues i faced…
    1- GET the 128GB… 64 with no expantion is too little these days specially if you are planning on gaming.
    2- this price is a bit too high actually, I bought the Redmi K20 Pro 128GB in hongkong 3 weeks ago and cost me 3000HKD/383USD/545AUD… for sure the price of the 128GB will come down a bit.
    3- if you plan on getting the Redmi K20 Pro there are a few deals on ali express, just know how to uninstall the Chinese bloat wear in the Chinese rom (or better get one with a Global rom pre-installed).
    4- I'm on Optus network and im getting full 4G+ around the Goldcoast Brisbane area…

    •  

      Were you able to use WiFi calling and VoLTE?

      • +2 votes

        VoLTE in Australia will be unlikely as the ROM would require specific carrier settings that Telstra/Optus/Vodafone use.

        If Xiaomi's deal with Optus goes ahead that could be a reality 😉

      Chinese version doesn't have B28, but Global version has B28. Is it correct? Chinese Mi website doesn't mention B28, but Mi Global website shows B28.

    •  

      Also have the K20 Pro, my 2 cents:

      1-MIUI allows you to uninstall essentially all of the bloatware through settings > apps, no rooting / bootloader unlock is required.
      2-On Telstra network and getting consistent 40-60Mbps~ in Melbourne.
      3-MIUI notifications are kinda annoying, you need to manually allow individual app notifications to show up on the lock screen.
      4-Google Services is easy to install and works fine on the Chinese ROM, including Android Pay. BUT "Ok Google" does not work unless you install another ROM.

      •  

        With the global version, do we still need to do all this?
        Thanx

        • +4 votes

          1-No, global has very minimal bloatware, mostly just Xiaomi's version of calendar / calculator etc.
          2-No, you get all Australian bands.
          3-Yes, this is the inherent design of MIUI10 and there's no real way around it.
          4-No, Google Services comes pre-installed.

          Cheers.

          MIUI notifications are ridiculous. The aggressive background app killing and battery optimization can be a nightmare for newcomers. This can be countered by killing MIUI optimization under developer options; auto-starting apps in permissions; locking apps to recent apps drawer; setting notification for each app to high (or priority); and ensuring battery optimization is turned off for each affected app.

          Yes it's painful doing this for every single app you want to receive notifications for but, that's MIUI for ya.

  •  

    Using one now myself, awesome device!

  •  

    Is this an upgrade or a downgrade from Pixel 2?

    •  

      Yes and no with all things, but overall performance wise I'd say yes. This comparison shows the difference between the two with the SD730 now outperforming the SD835 found in the pixel.

    Im totally over Razers after my recent dealings with them https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/463908. In fact Ive stopped shaving all together.

  •  

    for those who dont know, the mi9T has a worse (lower spec) camera than the xiaomi redmi note 7 pro

    •  

      The main difference between the (Mi9T) IMX 582 and (RN7P) IMX586 cameras is that the IMX 582 only supports up to 4K 30fps video, but the IMX 586 supports 4K 60fps. For photos they are identical, apparently.

      •  

        i have to disagree, its not only the hardware that plays a part, for example, go see a comparison between the mi9 vs k20 pro, they supposedly have the same camera, but in reviews the mi9 is better in every category in picture and video recording and EIS is much smoother and less jitter

        •  

          I am repeating what the head of the Redmi, Lu Weibing, said when asked about the differences between the imx582/586.

          What you say is correct. There is more to a camera than just the hardware. Look at the Pixel 3 v Nokia 7+. Both use the imx363, one is a class leading camera, the other is average at best.

          There are a lot of videos on YouTube comparing these phones, for people to make up their own minds. IMO, in some comparisons the RN7P looks better, it others the K20 looks better. I can't pick a clear winner so, I'm with Lu Weibing.

          As you said, specs aren't everything.

    Phone is back in stock but coupon expired?

    @clear could we please see the coupon GKBPHS10 back, would love to grab one of these phones now they are back in stock

  •  

    Is this a reputable website to buy from?

    • +2 votes

      I've posted 351 deals for GeekBuying since 2015, while also being a regular OzBargain poster and they're definitely a reputable seller. There are always things to be aware of with Chinese sellers like the amount of time it takes for free shipping to arrive for example.

      More than happy to address any concerns that you have.

      •  

        Spot on. The biggest issues with GeekBuying are stock status and delivery times. For example, as of now, the Mi9T appears "in-stock". Unsuspecting buyers would click "buy now" and wonder why the item isn't getting shipped. It is NOT in-stock. I'd recommend using live-chat before any major purchase that you may want quickly. As for delivery times, "direct line" isn't that bad & can get here within 2 weeks (if they use it). If they want to save a few $$ and go with normal "registered mail", you might be waiting 6-8 weeks.

        For the record, I ordered when the item was "in-stock" on 28/6, knowing it wasn't actually "in-stock" … It hasn't shipped, but I knew what I was signing up to.

        •  

          In my experience the stock issues are usually on restricted to new release Xiaomi phones. I always try to ensure there is stock before posting but sometimes they slip through the cracks like this did.

  •  

    Hi is this back in stock and also is the discount code coming with it? :)

  •  

    Stock update - there is NO stock. Live chat said it’s not arriving today (as we were originally told) but sometime next week. They are quick to debit your credit card - then they constantly lie about stock levels to stop you rom asking for a cancellation. It’s Geekbuying 101 & the risk you take when buying item’s that aren’t in stock.

  •  

    My auspost tracking has been sitting as "information received" for two days..

  •  

    2 weeks on - has anyone had their 9Ts shipped / received?

    •  

      Auspost tracking magically jumped from "Info received" to "out for delivery" so I guess today is my lucky day..
