Hopefully not over £350ish but I might need to borrow a bit more.
Sorry, I know this is not strictly 'budget' but it is a budget note/phablet I suppose.
The Mi 8 Pro looks like a lot of phone for £459

Not sure if my fairly normal use of a phone justifies the spend wonder if a refurb Samsung Note 7/8 would make more sense.
I do really want a flash new gadget to meddle with and the Note 4 has served me very well over years
Most people's fairly normal usage doesn't justify what most people spend on their/our phones.
The Mix Pro looks great btw
Mix or Max?
Mi 8 Pro
Thought there was another phone I was missing
This for approx £165

That is a lot of phone for the money. Seriously tempted, any reason not to get this?
Assuming it'll get Android 9.0 looks a bargain!
Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite starts receiving Android 9.0 Pie Update: Report
Have ordered it and a cheap case as I drop things a lot.
Thanks Throbbing Angel
Will update with feedback
yeh you're the only person i know with a bouncy rubber pint 'glass'
Well I hope you love it in that case.
I might've got one myself but I've 6 months left on my current contract.
Look forward to the review.
It is out the box but not set up yet.
Feels like a very solid bit of kit Came with a rubber 'back case' which is a bonus.
Only thing that annoyed me (I am out of touch with tech) is the new USB charger. I have a load of decent long Anker charger cables at home/work so have had to get some adapters for that.
Have wrapped it in cotton wool for now
USB C is the new thing. I like them on my Chromebook as it means I have a charging port on either side of the laptop. I was wondering the other day how I'd go on with a phone without a 3.5mm headphone jack as they seem to be more and more common and I assume that the Lite can use the USB C as its audio out? Gearbest had a 3.5mm to usb c adaptor on their site for 57p yesterday
Make sure you contribute to Post a screenshot of your phone's homescreen
there we are: still 57p!

Have already ordered 6 adapters for not much money so all sorted there. Going to set up tomorrow as the guy in the local market is good with cutting SIM cards and can put a screen protector on it.
Badgers How are you finding it? Deciding between this and £21 pcm for a pixel 3 for two years.

Still not set mine up
Sounds like other Urbs like it though
Ha! They're only 56p today. I win
Although it's hardly speedy delivery...
