    Damn, that’s an awesome price! If they bring one to Canada for the same price (169 SGD is a little under 150 CAD), I’d get one in a heartbeat (it would make a good backup phone) 🙂

      Why don’t you just buy it online and ship it over? Don’t they go for about that price now?

      I’m from Singapore, if Xiaomi Singapore don’t allow overseas shipping I could probably help you out somehow…

      170$ bucks for an outdated MT6589T phone with a mere 4GB ROM is all but an “awesome price”…

      So you are going to pay $150 for a phone will work on Rogers 2G only?

    expensive! You can get a Motorola Moto G for £99, this is basically the same price.

      can you buy that MotoG free of contract and not being forced to buy a certain data pre-paid plan from some 3g provider? (i mean after you bought only the phone – you can use whatever sim you want)

        yes you can buy the moto g off-contract and insert any sim you want after you use a £2 unlock code bought off ebay.

    for sure SINGAPORE dollars are mentioned here, so, it’s only about 130$ in fact, which seems pretty ok
