Even though its cheeper i wouldnt buy the chineese modell.

If you buy from amazon i think its easier if you have a problem.

You get widevine L1 on the global version and L3 on chinese, dont think you get the certification if you just change the rom, think its hardware?
(Might have wrong)

Might be some difference regarding Network band?
Does the chinese have band 20 (for example)?

Dont know about your financial status but if the differens is 50-80 dollars i dont think its worth the hassle..

If your outside China go for the global EU version,it has led bloat and gives you the ability to change default launcher and uninstall bloat apps.

I agree. But coming from Xiaomi, I have a habit of buying Chinese device and flashing global ROM.
