travis999, 03 Oct 2018Anyone hoping for prices similar to dealbest and online stores e... moreWe know that its not going to be the same prices as they would sell it in China.
But the fact is as a UK consumer i wont have to go through the grey market and wait to pay more money because i want the global rom and also paying import duty. I will also have somewhere to go when the phone goes wrong because i am sure they will have more of an online presence which will help especially as 3 announced earlier this year they will be selling them. Expecting them to sell at the same price as in China is a little silly as they may as well give them away if that is the case and since they won't be making money off their version of an app store. Still i feel that they will still be competitive if you think how much some other phone makers are selling their phones for.

Anyone hoping for prices similar to dealbest and online stores etc will be disappointed, every maker uses the UK as a huge profit maker, straight conversion from dollar to pounds, means they have huge profit margins, used to prop up their below cist sales elsewhere, UK governments allow its population to be exploited time after time, some of the most expensive electricity/gas etc in Europe, props up subsidy for lower prices to their home customers in Germany and France, phone makers do exactly the same, the UK population is treated as a cash cow, I expect prices in the London store to be 30-50% above dealbest etc, even though there will be no service/repair infrastructure in the UK, if yer xiaomi breaks down, it will go to China for repair, while you get fobbed off with a "refurbished" replacement,they may eventually open repair facility in Europe, but only if sales are good enough..

I prefer honor but competition is good to keep other brands in line. :3

now berlin? Would be fine not to import those phones of mine every year ;)

  • Geo

Well built phones, nice design, prefer using miui software, very good prices.

If the prices of next Samsung S10 series will be similar to Apple looks like I will have to pop up in that store one day or just look for alternatives like one plus

  • Khan

Yes finally, I hope the price are similar to Gearbest, banggood ,eGlobal, Toby deals AliExpress etc. 🙂

Conspiracy Theorist, 01 Oct 2018What are the required qualifications to become a sales assistant?Hopefully brains, common sense, and a little technical knowledge. Then at least the sales assistants will have some idea what the shop/store they are working in are actually selling, and may actually be able to answers some of the questions a customer may ask.

So nice, come to Europe and kick a.., like to se some cheap phones vs the 2 big greedy smartphone companies.

Conspiracy Theorist, 01 Oct 2018What are the required qualifications to become a sales assistant?Grad degree or sales experience.
