A couple of important points:
- All of their phones come with a basic case.
- This is the Pro version even though the page doesn't specify that, I will explain why, go to this page
compare column 2 and column 3, you will see that the biggest difference between the pro and the non-pro version is that, the pro version has chipset (under platform): Snapdragon 636 but the non-pro one has 625.
- I was gonna order the non-pro version, but I changed my mind: because I saw that the pro version is 100% aluminium but the non-pro version has plastic ends, this is a phone that I plan to use for 4~5 years, I think I am okay with paying a slight premium for a slightly more durable build (plus tiny hardware upgrades here and there, like dual camera and facial recognition)
- You don't pay tax when you buy from Aliexpress, you might get dinged by a custom fee like this guy for $20, but most people report back that they got theirs without being dinged.
- Currency conversion right now is 1.29 CAD = 1 USD so your final cost will be around 230 CAD.
enjoy your new phone!
If you buy now, they ship it out right away so there is no wait. Like many other RFDers, I bought it last month during pre-sale for $4 USD cheaper. I will report back with more details (regarding whether I get dinged with duty/tax, and performance of phone) once I receive the phone. Someone that picked the DHL option already received his phone, you can read more here.
