My Banggood Mi A1 arrived Yesterday and I'd like to hand out a Thanks to everyone around here for kicking up so much buzz about this phone. It is incredible for the money (coming from an S6) and none of my concerns were legit. The only downside is the camera but that's what my mirrorless is for. I ordered it November 9th and used Free Shipping. Bonus points for no duty, so I got it for $266 CAD delivered!! It should be noted that the tracking stopped when it left Switzerland or whatever that was. I was watching the tracker and it never landed in Canada... but was delivered.
Which GeekBuying warehouse did you buy it from?

Edit: Whoops, completely overlooked the part where you said it was a Banggood buy.

Stated on there website up to 20 working days to receive. Ordered mine last day October, shipped November 3 and received last Sunday.
So yours should be there most likely early next week.

I ordered on Nov. 5th, 2017 from BG and mine was delivered on Nov. 29th, 2017 (actually, Canada Post tried to deliver it on Nov. 29th but nobody was home to sign, so I have to pick it up the next day).

I also ordered a case for it at the same time but don't know where it is. Hopefully, I'll get it soon.

BTW, the one I ordered was meant for the EU market but I got an adapter in the package.

TBH I never saw any expected date anywhere. I was just happy it didn't take 2 months like some of my AliExpress stuff did!

Deal dead? All stores seem to be selling for USD $230+ now.

Be careful of "Xiaomi Online Store" on Aliexpress. They tried to trick me during an "unpaid order" transaction.

Did you pay extra for shipping or did you pick free shipping?

I placed my order on 11/27 and paid for DHL shipping. Received an email this morning from Geekbuying saying that it would be shipped out next week. Still hoping to get it before Xmas.

Is TVCMall a reputable vendor? How are their products different from other Chinese mall vendors? I thought they all carry more or less same products from the same manufacturers?
