Top Deals for June 2021



We enjoyed some amazing savings earlier this week for Amazon Prime Day and, even though this has now ended, some Xiaomi hardware remains on sale, as we have listed below.

Xiaomi is also listing its own sale until 27 June, within which you can save money on a range of phones and other devices, and also save £10 on Mi Smart Band 6 or Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic when you buy any new phone. 

In the past we’ve seen some cracking Xiaomi deals available from Chinese importers such as GearBest. Although it can still be quicker to get your hands on newly released devices when you buy from China, it’s no longer necessary to get the best prices.

Xiaomi Buying Advice

A few years back, importing Xiaomi phones to the UK was plagued with issues. Chinese ROM models do not come preinstalled with Google services, and in such cases you would need to install this yourself and navigate a Chinese menu and keyboard to get it set it up correctly. Connectivity was also an issue, with one of the three 4G bands used in the UK (800MHz/Band 20) rarely supported, and this could leave O2 users out in the cold. Thankfully, if you take care to purchase only Global ROM models, these are all a thing of the past.

Some of these issues do still apply to other Xiaomi products, however. Xiaomi laptops typically come with a Chinese Windows 10 OS, so require some know-how to install an English operating system, an OEM version of which will cost you only £10-20. With older products, such as the Mi Band 3, Chinese versions will naturally have Chinese menu icons. And many Xiaomi products shipped from China come with Chinese user manuals – Google is your friend here if you’re not sure how to get them set up.

It’s worth pointing out that any Xiaomi product you buy from the UK Mi Store will be an English version, and none of these issues will apply. They do, however, typically command slightly higher prices, and that’s largely because Xiaomi has less control over the supply and distribution costs outside China.
