really pleased I went for 5.5" note 2, to replace my 5", not to big and really fast, delivered really quickly via signpost, be careful when removing the screen protector top sheet, managed to pull of the screen protector as well, Ace the technician has told me he requested Merimobiles to send me another, still not received yet, recommend this phone and Merimobiles....
Thank you Brian for sharing your review of this wonderful phone. It's well appreciated.

Firstly, thanks to M.M for excellent service, low prices and especially fast help from the chat line. I received my Xiaomi shipped from China to Australia in 3 days, delivered by DHL with tracking.
I believe that I have the fastest Note 2 from the Xiaomi factory. All Youtube video reviews I viewed online, showed a Antutu score between 25 to 28,000. My Antutu score is 31,224 and Quadrant 3D score of 3469, which is marginally below name brand high end smartphones.
It plays all 1080p videos smoothly, including HD Youtube and streaming videos. The 13MP camera is excellent and above average compared to other smartphones in this price range. Call quality is excellent at both ends and surprisingly Skype calls were very clear also.
Battery life with moderate use (4 calls, sms & 1.5 hours browsing net/day), is between 1.5 to 2 days, so heavy users should get at least 1 days use from battery. The battery took 3.5 hours to charge from 6% to fully charge. Wifi, 3G and 2G connections were good and fast lock ons using Navfree GPS and Google Maps.
Some minor issues I had!
1.The stock browser returns Chinese search results. For english language, go into settings and change default search engine to your choice eg. (google.com)
2. My Xiaomi Hongmi Note 2 as received, blocked all incoming calls using both sims. In default settings, go to security icon/OK/blocklist/settings and deselect blocklist. This corrected sim blocking error.
3. Audio volume could be louder through speakers and when using speaker phone for calls. However sound volume is high when using the Xiaomi Piston headphones, which I can recommend for clarity and good bass.
The 5.5" screen is easy to read and navigate, with fast web browsing, build quality is good and I would give a value rating of 8.5/10.

This is best value for money you can get from a phone nowadays.
Excellent Screen , zero Lag , Perfect Dual Sim Functionality and overall a great phone maybe even better than Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Generally it is a good phone, but sometimes the phone lags. Overall, it is still a good value considered the price.
Thank you for sharing your review Tiong. It's well appreciated.

I got the phone I ordered, a verified genuine one,it arrived quite fast while I opted for the free shipping solution. Everithing went smoothly, as I expected. Very good service. The 24x7 chat service is also of great utility. The phone itself is perfect for my use, an outstanding value for the price.

You may find better phones, but at the moment of writing none actually ashames this one, and for sure none for this price.
The bould materials feel plasticky, but that also holds for much more expensive phones that cost 2 and 3 times more.
Thank for the review Ern. We appreciate it. Cheers!

Both sim are full sim or there is a micro/nano sim and a full sim. Both sim can be used for data or only one for data and another for calls?
Hello George. The phone uses standard size sim. Only one slot can use data but both can be use for calls and text. Thank you.

Any news about availability?
Hello Costas. We are trying our best to get this phone but we really can't give you exact date as Xiaomi has always been not easy to get.

About when will be in stock?
Hello Costas. We are hoping to have this by the end of the month. If not then second week of May probably. Thank you.
