Hi!

Im just wondering where you bought your mi max 2 and from what store?

I can figure that most of you bought it through Aliexpress? Was it goldway or "xiaomi store"?

Alright. Thanks for your answers! :). What kind of rom did you get on your phone? "shop rom", chinese without play store or real global with OTA support?

I purchased mine from gearbest. I got the Global rom with 64 GB. It should be here tomorrow. The global rom versions of this phone should come with the google play store pre-installed.

Mine had a global rom out of the box and I've updated it with a ota right away. Then unlocked the bootloader and rooted!

I got mine yesterday and updated with the OTA as well. Just curious, what guide did you use to root with? I actually like the UI so just want root and custom recovery. Not interested in flashing any roms.

Buy from my local store , with global rom and bootloader already unlocked. Then I flash manual (becoz unable to OTA update - maybe fake global rom) with official rom from miui.com stable 8.5.4.0
Then root it and install many apk that need root access :D

I've gotten 2 (for me & my wife) both from geek buying, DHL shipment. Both took about 6 days total. Anyone find a good case & screen protector?

My husband bought my phone on ebay from a seller in Taiwan. It was shipped on 8/21/2017 and arrived 8/23/2017 via DHL. Had to sign for delivery and it arrived brand new in shrink-wrapped box.

seller on ebay is qd_us

    Just bought from Gear Best -- Max 2 coupon codes in post.

    Gear Best -- 4/64 - for $229, free shipping, no tax. If you want the HK rom instead of the world rom, it's only $219. I'm in the states so duties aren't an issue.
    eGlobalcentral has it for 229 but I think only the HK rom. The service and shipping of the US site is astoundingly good, in my experience, but I haven't tried to return anything and I've read horrible reviews of their AU and EU sites.
    Anyhow -- Gearbest coupons I tried to use that didn't work. Got a message they couldn't be used by US buyers (but I didn't try all of them).
    • Flash sale price: $229.99
    • Coupon 1 ($201.99): BLFRPL15 (Poland only!)
    • Coupon 2 ($207.11): 1111PL54 (Poland only!)
    • Coupon 3 ($209.11): AFF1151
    • Coupon 4 ($209.11): GB11.11DEAL38
    • Coupon 5 ($209.99): MAX2GB11
    • Coupon 6 ($209.99): BFRIDAY038
    • Coupon 7 ($219.99): GMAX2B
    • Coupon 8 ($221.11): AFF1126

    btw -- if you load the cart using the web portal but check out with their app, you save a few more bucks on some items (you can't tell which ones until you see your cart in the app.)
