Xiaomi Mi 9T (6GB + 128GB) $479.20 Delivered @ Xiaomi Australia eBay Store

1880
POLLEN20

Seems like a decent deal for this phone. They've dropped the price from $699 to $599 which now makes it a considerable deal after discount for those that would prefer dealing with an official seller rather than buying it for around $400 - $450 from a gray market importer. I'm personally holding out on this until I can claim back GST from the TRS when I go on holiday in January.

    wait for the MI9 PRO :D

    waiting for them to stock the mi 9t pro 8gb + 256GB -_-

    •  

      yeah i keep changing my mind on if i should wait for discount on the Pro with better chip, 2GB more ram and more storage, only thing it really has over this model is it does 4k 60 video and abit faster. but is it $200 worth faster.

  •  

    They don't seem to have Carbon Black in the 128GB. What's a better colour- red or blue?
    Is this Australian 2 year warranty? Where is the Xiaomi service centre?

      Actually not a bad chip. Quite a bit more powerful than sd 835 and very efficient.

      •  

        Similar but not more

        •  

          I was mainly going off single core cpu performance. In benchmarks it's about 30% faster than a 835 in single thread i believe.

          Edit: That's what i got from comparing a couple different phones with 730 and 835 on the geekbench browser anyway.

          Real world tests have the processor even though less, actually works faster with everyday apps and beats out tbe poco f1, a70, a50 and oneplus 7. Where it lacks a little with a bit less of a processor is in actually playing games is just that bit less swift. But having less of a processor has proven it to be the best out of all of those with real life battery life endurance. So if you dont game, its a win in every category.

  •  

    Everything seems perfect, but I can't find info that it had Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS).
    Can anyone confirm whether it has it or not?

  •  

    This or Poco f1
    Dick Smith selling for $419
    Can we claim warranty from dick Smith incase

      This, poco doesn't have NFC massive drawback. The bezel on this are also a lot smaller.

      •  

        Notchless, better battery life, better camera, much faster using all apps, much better build quality and looks wise. It beats out the poco f1 and its priced cheap as. Better value the mi9t.

    • +2 votes

      Dick Smith's (or Kogan's, rather) will be grey import.

    •  

      I have both phones and this is better, it very similar but you have notchless amoled, NFC , triple camera and in screen finger print sensor.

    •  

      I have both Poco F1 and Mi 9T
      Go with Mi9T for full screen notchless display. Better camera upgrade. Finger print scanner on the screen. And over all smooth user interface.
      But I'm currently deciding to get the Mi 9T Pro

    Does anyone know how much they charge for screen replacement? It's all good and well having a warranty until you break the screen

    • +1 vote

      I think one issue you will find is generally most repair shops only repair common phones like iPhone, Samsunng flagships, etc so may struggle to find a shop that is willing to repair a Xiaomi, and even less likely to have the parts in stock. I just had a look online, it looks like a replacement screen can be had for about ¬$250 so you could expect around $350 - $450 for a replacement in-store.

      lots of youtube tutorials on how to do it yourself, dont stress it dawg

    •  

      Usually I get a case and glass screen protector. Paid $20 for a decent brand screen protector and $35 for a spigen case, cheaper than a $300 screen replacement

  •  

    Great price ! I myself have the mi9SE Love it !

    Thank OP. Purchased one. Does anyone know if this has Band 28. I know the global model should, but it doesn't say so on their listing?

    What's Xiaomi Australia's warranty service like?

    How this vs the google pixel 3? About to send mine back as it came with dust in the camera - and can't get rid of google assistant, it's everywhere - android doesn't value privacy.

      Depends on who you value privacy from. If you're concerned about Big G, then any Android phone (out of the box) is going to have a similar experience. Xiaomi is also going to take a cut of your usage data, as a lot of their apps have quite invasive permissions and frequently phone home (for instance, a great many default apps require permission to "make phone calls" (!) so that they can access your IMEI and tie your identity to it).

      If you're looking to get away from either, then you'll probably be after wiping it and putting a more friendly ROM on it. The Pixel has a more developer-friendly manufacturer, and it's an older phone, so the community has had time to develop ROMs for it. ROMs for the 9T (that aren't MIUI-based) are still fairly experimental and there's no official releases of major ROMs.

      If you're prepared to accept a worse software experience on custom ROMs, personally the 9T beats the Pixel 3 in hardware, so factor that how you will.

      Which store did u get the pixel 3 from?

    Oppo Reno Z or this phone?

      This phone over Oppo any day. You can't do much on Oppo

      •  

        You can't do much on Oppo

        What do you have in mind when you say this?

        •  

          I'm curious to know this too.

        •  

          As on you cant root or customized in anyway.. just think of Oppo as the android of apple ( can't customized anything) . If you get what I mean! So to compare Xiaomi and Oppo . Xiaomi anyday. I've had the oppo ax5s , Oppo Reno z , Oppo r15 , Oppo r17 pro . I step away from Poco for that reason.

          •  

            @Ozkaays: Ok, if that's the case, I personally agree with you (because I root my phone too), but you need to be aware that the majority of the population don't give a crap and probably don't even know what rooting is and you probably should disclaimer that in your comment.

            It'd be like if I told you that scuba diving gear is 90% off, and me telling you "hey, it's a really good time to buy now!!" but.. maybe you've never even been scuba diving or have no interest in it lol.

            So in which case, you'd really need to compare the Reno Z unrooted vs Xiaomis unrooted - unless rize2love is actually curious about rooting etc.!

    Got mine yesterday.

    It good, but honestly a bit large.

    My biggest issue is that while glass isn't slippery on skin, its very slippery on fabric.

    Just sitting down meant it would inevitably fall out of most pockets after a while. Unless they're front pockets and relatively tight.

    So I'm going to try out the case it comes with to hopefully cut down on that. Because devoting 5% of your concentration to worrying your phone is going to fall out and break is hugely exhausting mentally.

    •  

      I got a spigen case from eBay and love it. I found that a lot of the plastic cases on eBay and I find that they have sharp edges.

    Thoughts on this vs the Mi 9T Pro 6GB + 64GB blue for ~$507 AUD delivered from GearBest using an email only link?

  •  

    its $415 from buybuybox http://buybuybox.com/product.php?id=40775
    anybody tried them before?

      That's obviously coming from China and it's the Chinese version of the phone (not global) as it doesn't have full 4G coverage in Australia.

    • +1 vote

      No band 28. They say global version to try and trick you by adding the global rom to the chinese version. Which is crap. Still cant get certain apps.

      •  

        its the global version. the chinese and indian version is lableled as redmi k20. the global one is called xiaomi mi 9t. that seller has the best price but you can never ask a refund from them.

        •  

          they call it the mi9T as its the exact same phone as the redmi k20. They say its global as they have uploaded the global ROM onto the chinese version! They are using wording on a chinese model to try and trick you into thinking its the global version with band 28. They never mention it has band 28 in their ad anyway.. another way to know.

          •  

            @boostpak: which aussie carrier uses the band 28?

          •  

            @boostpak: band 28 is listed on the mi.com global website for mi 9t. maybe the seller's listing is a copy and paste of the k20. as they had no idea those two phones have minor spec differences. most of them list mi 9t with the k20 in brackets.
            you can check out k20 spects on the xiaomi india site

            •  

              @japankobe: I wasn't talking about this seller in this listing, I was talking about the link to the buybox seller and other sellers on ebay. The tactics they use to sell grey import or chinese versions I explained above

    Wonder how long the pop-up cam will last with all the dust and debris getting in it. Xiaomi says 300k open/close cycles but they probably did that in a sealed lab or something.
