Rep: (1267)
Tell the seller on Aliexpress, who is trouble-free, from whom everything is ordered?
ABOUT : We jointly keep order statistics. You can see, which stores are popular at the community 4 when buying Redmi Note 5 Snapdragon 636 and make your choice, as well as add your order to the base .
Is there an official Xiaomi store on Aliexpress?
ABOUT : There is no official Xiaomi store on Aliexpress. But there is an official store on Taobao.com .
Instructions onsavagemessiahzine.comfor buying on Taobao.
What with the price, why the phones went up in price?
ABOUT : The answer look here . We also remember that in China, as in Russia, prices are pegged to the dollar and change accordingly + in countries (almost all) where there is inflation each year they raise prices.
Why is the same product in the same store at a different price?
ABOUT : The seller’s trick in the hope that someone will buy a product more expensive, and the second is sales. At the right time, an expensive product will be discounted. Everything is fair)
How much to wait for a refund in case of cancellation?
ABOUT : Aliexpress rules are as follows - up to 20 days. Of course, in practice, everything happens noticeably faster in most cases, but it is quite likely to wait 7-10 days. Perhaps the waiting period also depends on the card issuing bank and its type. Forgetting about this problem, as well as losses on conversion, helps buy Ali certificates .
Should I pay a guarantee on Aliexpress?
ABOUT : Before buying a warranty, check out what damage it applies to https: //trade.aliexpre...rrantyIntroduction.htm and if there is an SC in your city, otherwise you will pay for both ways if the SC recognizes the case as not guaranteed. For someone, buying a guarantee is a waste of money, for someone it's buying a sense of peace. On 4 there is a separate topic 1 year warranty from Ali or discuss Weistek Service read reviews in it, as well as google the Internet. Aliexpress provides protection from 60 to 120 days. Delivery of goods usually keeps within 20-30 days. It is not necessary to confirm receipt immediately, you can use the phone to identify deficiencies during the entire period of protection + 15 days after confirmation of receipt. So, on average, you have 45 days to test and open a dispute with the seller, and this is without a guarantee.
The seller on Ali does not respond for a long time.
ABOUT : On weekends, the Chinese do not work (surprise!) And sacredly honor all public holidays. Be patient, check out the calendar of Chinese holidays and weekends and wait for the Chinese to come to work. You will answer.
How to order a phone with a specific screen / camera manufacturer?
ABOUT : None. The seller will most likely refuse you and will be right, because to fulfill your request he will have to open the boxes, run the phones, go through the initial setup, etc. As a result, the screen or camera you need may not be in any of the opened phones.
Parts, on the Chinese production Xiaomi set randomly, in other words - full random.
The above applies to quality control. The seller may refuse to you in search of dead pixels, backlash, and the like. In addition, on Aliexpress, most often, the seller and the goods are equidistant from each other matter located in different cities.
How to find out the time for processing an order for Ali?
ABOUT : In the Aliexpress application you can see on the product page when choosing a delivery method, picture .

The seller wrote the weight of the parcel is XXX, is this normal?
ABOUT : On average, the weight of a parcel with a Redmi Note 5 phone should be in the range of 380-430 grams.
After passing "Mr Lts Vnukovo shop-1" the weight of the parcel became 0g. Is it time to panic?
ABOUT : No panic - this means that at this point the parcel was not weighed. In addition, most likely the previous line indicates the weight of the parcel, and the point and time are the same as in the status with zero weight.
Is it worth worrying about changing the weight of a 1 gram package?
ABOUT : Minor changes in weight are permissible and due to the accuracy of the weighing instrument, the rounding of weight and the operator's error. But there were cases that came cogs or water bottle with a change in weight of 1 gram.
When receiving, except for weight, pay attention to the packaging. Even if the weight matches up to a gram, but the package has traces of opening, cuts, additional adhesive tape, you have the right not to receive the parcel, but to demand the preparation of an opening act according to form 51 and shoot everything on video.

I got a phone
I got a phone, what should I do first?
ABOUT : Test your phone with the built-in test. Prepare headphones, SD-card and SIM-card, as well as an external USB flash drive + OTG-cable, you will need them for a successful test.
  1. To enter the test (engineering) menu in the dialer dial * # * # 6484 # * # *, or Settings>About phone>5 times on the kernel version and go through all the points of the test.
  2. Next (this is not a test, but an important step before starting operation), reset the system to factory settings: Settings>Additional settings>Backup and reset>Reset settings (with clearing the internal memory). Do this no matter what firmware you have and where you bought the phone in the store or with your hands. If after rebooting, the phone goes into the bootlap, requires a Mi-account login or there are system errors - open a dispute with the seller / return the money / change the phone. If after rebooting with the device everything is in order, proceed to setting up the phone for you.

Authentication of the phone does not pass anywhere. I have a fake?
ABOUT : 1. If firmware updates or components come to your phone, or you have flashed the update yourself with a special program, it means that you have a 100% real phone and there is no cause for concern. The fake device will simply not be able to download and install the update, not only the official MIUI, but also any other firmware. In addition, making copies of phones costing up to $ 200 is economically unprofitable.
2. Download the CPU-Z program or any other program for testing the characteristics you trust from the play market and compare the data from the program with the official specifications. Copy manufacturers install low-quality displays, low-cost processors, less memory and other low-quality components.
Where is the date of manufacture of the phone?
ABOUT : The production date should be indicated on the back of the box in the lower right corner under the bar code in the format year.month.
How to find out who the manufacturer of the screen?
ABOUT : Technical data can be found in the engineering menu. The answer in the pictures on the example of Redmi Note 4 Snapdragon .
How to check availability of LTE B20 network after purchase?
ABOUT : To display frequencies, you must have Root access on your phone and install the program Network Signal Guru .
How to distinguish Global from Neglobal by external signs?
ABOUT : 1. Externally, the global and the non-global are identical, but you can tell by the labels on the phone and the inscriptions on the box: on the global, everything is in English and there should not be hieroglyphs.
2. Dial in the dialer * # 06 #.
If only 2 IMEI seem - then global.
If it seems 2 IMEI and MEID - then China.
3. In the Settings about the phone in the line Model name on the "global" indicated M1803E7SG or M1803E7SH.

Can the firmware change the frequency range of the B20 4G network?
ABOUT : No you can not.
I ordered a phone, what should I do before I get it?
ABOUT : To start create a mi account if there is none. Next, it is advisable to apply for unlocking the bootloader, so that later not to wait. Permission is not given to the phone (you may not have it), but to the Mi-account, from which you can unlock more than one phone. Agree that it is better to already have approval on unlock, than to wait for it when it is needed. More in topic Unlocking XIAOMI bootloaders .

Yes, they do not prepare! Just laid out, they have prices CON! Buy in China for a penny, and then sell at three expensive! If you buy $ 270, how much will they sell? $ 320?

Why horse? For example, xiaomi redmi 5 plus 4/64 (standard and a year of warranty) on Ali in the official store is$218.39. On hello6499,00 UAH($ 239 if you take the course 27.2 UAH for $ 1).
Total, if you take the real deal, then order from China - will cost $ 219 + duty (since the cost exceeds the duty-free limit of 150 Euro) about 350 UAH ($ 13) = $ 232. (VAT payers are plus 1250 UAH - $ 46!)
So the prices are very adequate!
And yes, for $ 270 they will not buy, as this is the retail price. I predict the price we have in the $ 280-285 for 64/6 and $ 235-240 for 4/64

The price tag is not adequate. If the price does not go down better then take the redmi 5 plus, but if you spend that kind of money, then it's better mi note 3

Rep: (1)
Hello, official representative of Xiaomi in Ukraine. So they buy directly. The price for 5+ is not much higher than Chinese, but the Global Version, the official warranty and Ukrainian certification. And judging by the firmware, in the global market the smart will be called Redmi Note 5.
