    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 :eek:

    mi-8-pro - Xiaomi UK

    Not sure if my fairly normal use of a phone justifies the spend :hmm: 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 :hmm:

    Most people's fairly normal usage doesn't justify what most people spend on their/our phones.

    The Mix Pro looks great btw

    It is out the box but not set up yet.

    Feels like a very solid bit of kit :cool: 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.

    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 :eek:

    Cheers again :thumbs:

    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.
