I also ordered from gearbest low-end devices, the last one is a redmi 6a for my daughter. but I prefer to buy with a warranty when talking about high-end devices... they don't understand they are losing a lot of potential customer that will buy from parallel import or directly order from chinese online stores...

Dear user,
There are indeed price differences in different countries.
Agents need to maintain a reasonable profit.

thank you for your answer. sadly this is not the reason as there is no custom for smartphone importation since 2017 and the VAT (17%) is lower than in France for example (20%) while the price is about 10% higher ...  
worse, it is 15% higher than in spain that has 21% vat!!

Yosef77, did you also wrote to Apple about the huge differences between the prices in USA and Israel or Europe for iphone and macbooks ?
The pricing in Israel is pretty much reasonable when you take into considuration the taxes, warranty period, etc.

my last Mac was bought in France 10 years ago (before my alya). apple is for me a lost cause, they market shares are dropping and their devices are less and less appealing... (in particular for the price).
but in all cases, as it is not the debate, the the Apple tag price was always high, in all countries. and the focus was on integration and ease of use. Xiaomi, official, put the focus on the price... it is not the same case...

about the taxes, please take a look at what I just wrote few minute ago to brok€n. the vat here is less than in Spain or in France, there is no custom for smartphones and the price is still 15% higher...

In Israel you Bay for the insurance, that again is very complicated to get to do something in case of malfunction

there is also warranty for customers in France, in Spain and in all country is officially represented...
and still they are paying the devices a lot less than we pay...
