so in summery due to the gulf on price difference between China rrp and UK rrp people are still finding it cheaper by almost 50% to purchase from importers. the only thing worth noting here is the lack of proper warranty through importers but as long as we buy global editions everything else should be pretty much the same. remember the gulf in price is still huge and even bigger when you consider importers are making a solid profit on reselling xiaomi gear bought at China prices.
