    Greedy pricing. This is a 172 usd phone in China for the 3gb version. I understand marking it up a bit, but not this much.

    • November 24, 2015

      If you knew what goes in to getting a Xiaomi phone at launch you will think that it is too cheap.

        Then why can I buy the 3gb version on Geekbuying for 209 usdwith shipping? In fact I just ordered it with their tanksgiving coupon for 197

          Goodluck incase you get it from geekbuying else just dream on of something that will never come to reality. hahahaha, i place my order now six weeks but the order not yet shipped. I was pissed off but later gave up to let them do what they wish

              Good ive met a geekbuying employee here on Gizchina, marketing is not bad when you deliver on time but you people you market for something you will never deliver, you scams and thieves

              He’s a shill for speaking the truth? I can point you to about a dozen sites with complaints about Geekbuying not shipping phones. Are all those people shills too?

              silence…now you really scared him.
              i bet he went to cancel his order lol

              People don’t realize that when a deal seems too good to be true there is usually a catch. Every other site is selling the Note 3 16GB for $209, if one has the 32GB cheaper it’s either a typo or something is not right.

            • MaxPower
              November 24, 2015

              on Giztop they sell it for $149.
              then when you go to select the model there’s only the 3GB version available saying “add $100”
              cheap advertisement.

              this is still on pre-sale so the price really means nothing.
              Someone might save $10 and then get the phone 4 months later.

              But hey, of he trusts them, let him do it. i wish him good luck.

              I hope he gets it, never wanna see people get screwed but I personally had a bad experience with Geekbuying and they are one of the tops on the customer complaint sites. A lot of these presales are infamous for jacking the price up once it is released.

              you know that gizshop is the same as honorbuy right? they dont exactly have glowing reviews either

              November 25, 2015

              I have personal experience with both honorbuy/gizchina and geekbuying. One (honorbuy) I have never had an issue with, the other (geek) I had several issues with.

            • Nilzie
              November 25, 2015

              Ive done 10 orders with them before in total and never had an issue. So nah, I wont cancel it.

              show them that you’re right and post a pic of the phone as soon as you get it.

        • balcobomber25
          November 24, 2015

          Every site I have seen it on so far has been $209 with Geekbuying being the lone exception. But best of luck to you with Geekbuying they are notorious for two things, never having sufficient stock and changing prices after the fact. I know people who ordered from them thinking they were getting a lower price and didn’t see their phone for 3 months. But I wish you the best of luck.

        Forget at launch trying to get a Xiaomi phone in China for the first couple months is a nightmare.

        Andi can you compare Letv 1 or 1s vs redmi note 3.

      Wait, didn’t we all read the same that said 2gb RAM.???

    we really waited for GIZCHINA Shop so eagerly and truely now we are enjoying its benifits. (Portable prices compared to other online Resellers that sales USD -30 more)

    • Nilzie
      November 24, 2015

      This is a fucking lie.

      • balcobomber25
        November 24, 2015

        I found the 3GB model on one other site, Gearbest where it is on presale for $264. So while it is not $30 more it is cheaper on Gizchina. You have some extreme anger towards the Gizchina Shop. So what really happened?

        • Nilzie
          November 24, 2015

          Okay I got mine for 197 but have fun spending more.

          • balcobomber25
            November 24, 2015

            Goodluck actually getting yours. I really do hope you actually get it for that price, but everyone I know that has used Geekbuying has had horrible experienced. I don’t need to spend more I already have a better phone than this.

    Wait less than 1 month and the 2GB model will be $169.99 and 3GB $199.99. Now the resellers are adding big profit margin on price, because people are preparing for holidays.

    does it have an SD card slot?

    no 3GB RN3 ?

    • balcobomber25
      November 24, 2015

      It’s typical of Xiaomi to only release the base model at first (and usually only one color). Following normal Xiaomi timelines you won’t see the 3GB model for at least a few months.

      • Nilzie
        November 24, 2015

        Wrong. The 32 gb version has 3gb ram. Gizchina store fucked up.

        • balcobomber25
          November 24, 2015

          There is nothing wrong about that Xiaomi has always waited to release the models with higher storage capacity. They may have fucked up in their listing but there is nothing wrong about what I said.

          • Nilzie
            November 24, 2015

            There is because the 3gb version is releasing on the 27. Until you can prove Xiaomi wrong on their words what youre saying is FUD

            • balcobomber25
              November 24, 2015

              So you are saying Xiaomi didn’t delay the release of the 64GB Mi4 or any other past models with higher capacity? They were all available at launch? I haven’t seen a single thing from Xiaomi saying specifically both phones will launch on the 27th, have you?

            • Nilzie
              November 24, 2015

              You commented on “no 3GB RN3 ?” when there clearly is one.

              And yes the launch date is translated from Xiaomis event.

            • balcobomber25
              November 24, 2015

              But the launch date doesn’t specifically say the 32 GB version will be released that day. It just says the Note 3 will be.

            • balcobomber25
              November 24, 2015

              I always forget that with each new Xiaomi launch lol

            • balcobomber25
              November 24, 2015

              And I never said there wasn’t a 3GB version…. I said Xiaomi typically releases it after the base model, which they do.

            • Nilzie
              November 25, 2015

              Show me an official statement from Xiaomi that they are launching the 3gb version later.

              And by the way, according to their latest release youre completely wrong. They released mi4c 2gb and 3gb model at the same time.

    Question about the Redmi Note 3:
    Is it possible to use the 2nd SIM slot for SD card as the Note 5 ?
    http://phandroid.com/2015/08/14/dual-sim-note-5-microsd/

    • balcobomber25
      November 24, 2015

      Most likely not. Phones that have that feature have a dedicated SD/Sim reader on the motherboard. The only way that it would be possible is if Xiaomi used a SD/Sim reader (instead of just Sim readers) and has it software blocked.

    “GPU:Intel HD Graphics”
    You can kiss my … I actually prefer the old one, with Tegra K1 and MicroSD slot! And BTW Nvidia release their tablet for $199 (with Tegra K1 & Micro SD). Intel crap.

    • Ulti
      November 24, 2015

      Same, I’m keeping my old tablet Mi Pad 1 even though I love the metal build quality and the price is amazing still. MicroSD slot and the Tegra K1 is really good as you say, I don’t see a reason to “sidegrade”.

    when it come to buying a Xiaomi phone i always buy it at Honourbuy i know its a little bit more expensive but they have never let me down. for all other phones i buy them from 1949 deal.com i have no issues with them. i dont always think that the cheaper seller is the best to be honest and because its long distance selling there is always a risk. It is total madness to buy a phone from China without using Paypal i just dont think it is a good idea.

    is the 32gb rom version also 3gb ram? Or the ram is 2gb?
    Shops are a bit confusing…
