    Think note 7 would be best choice for your budget as can get it from UK. Pro would be better but there is no global version. Main reason I went for mi9. If you still have note 4x you can stick pixel experience ROM on it and it makes it a great phone if you want to keep it.

    In that case try pixel experience ROM, I did install it for a week while I was waiting for my mi9 phone to come and gotta say it was really nice. Everything works perfectly on it.

    Looks good for the money, I haven't seen any reviews on it so might be worth checking some out.

    Been driving myself nuts trying to decide on a replacement dual sim (ideally sub £200) mobile, after my Maze Alpha bricked last Saturday, following a fall from my front shirt pocket while inside its case which left no external signs of damage.

    Been looking at the likes of...
    Xioami Mi A2 Lite
    Xioami Mi A2
    Nokia 7.1
    Nokia 6.1
    Umidigi F1
    Umidigi F1 Play
    Samsung Galaxy A40 (£40 cashback offer when bought directly from Amazon dropped it to £180)
    Motorola G7
    etc.

    Ended up choosing the Mi A2 (Uk version) for £170 from Amazon a bit earlier (just in time for delivery tomorrow), but very nearly ordered the Mi A2 Lite... Not overly bothered about lack of 3.5mm headphone jack as I have some Taotronic Bluetooth earbuds, just hope I won't regret the ~3000mAh battery and the lack of an SD card expansion slot. Using my mobile as a way to surf the net away from my pc and as a companion to my cycling GPS computer for automatic re-routing off a planned course, buying the Mi A2 with the Snapdragon 660 processor will work out fine... With a bit of luck!

    My Note 5 (Global Version) had the Android 9 update only two days ago and was receiving regular updates before that.

    Has anyone ever had anything delivered with the courier DPEX?

    I can barely find anything about them online, who delivers the parcel once it's in the UK?

    So unofficially the Mi 9T looks to be the Pocofone F2. Was there a 'Pro' version of the F1? I ask because outside of the EU, the phoned is branded the K20, with both pro and non-pro variants. There doesn't seem to be a 9T pro available in the UK yet and wondering how long we are likely to wait.

    The Mi 9T can be had for £275 when on offer and don't know whether to jump on it or wait for a Mi 9T Pro which may or may not come.

    I'd take a 855 over a 710 any day, so if it didn't come over here, I'd just get a K20 Pro from overseas, like I did with my current Mix 2S, and the ZUK Z2 Pro before it.
