I make this thread because of the large increase in threads regarding fake phone and people asking if they got a phone that is fake.

I will make and update a list regarding the sites,stores,sellers the users here have bought from and got a real Xiaomi phone from.
I will also makes second list regarding sites that people should regard as unsafe and should NOT buy from since they have been selling fake Xiaomi phones.

There have been two shops i told to people is safe and its hotmid.com and android-sale.com
I bought my own phone from hotmid.com and phone back covers, screen protection from Android-sale.com and all is legit stuff.
I have talked and read a lot of threads about people saying this and that store,seller or site is legit but i don't remember everyone so in regards of this i'm sorry that i don't list every store but as i said this list will be updated whenever it gets new info.

Im not in anyway sponsored by the stores,sellers or sites listed bellow or saying that sites, sellers or stores not listed are selling fakes. Im just informing that the below list includes where users of this forum has gotten a real Xiaomi phone.

The list over unsafe places are to make sure people stay away from these places so not more people get tricked into buying a fake Xiaomi phone. The list with unsafe places will ONLY be listed of you post in this thread Discover the fake by emaz
and its "accepted" as being fake. This is to ensure that a seller dont get "banned" by users from this site without reason.

Update: Do to a good request from emaz the thread will also give you any information about any safe sites,sellers,stores that sell original stuff from Xiaomi.
I know they are a lot of back covers, screen protection, clothes, etc but i would like to keep this thread for the original things you can buy from Xiaomi. I will not include everything that is sold by other company's for the Xiaomi phones or stuff "branded" with the Xiaomi logo.

I bought my Xiaomi M1S on http://realpricesfromchina.com/, for $315.41 (with a white back cover including in the price) + 52€ of taxes. They don't have stock, so you have to wait, but the price is not too high.

http://sciphone.fr/en/ are french, the price is very high, but if you see their forum (in french) lots of people received a true Xiaomi. I bought a Xiaomi M2 to someone who bought his Xiaomi on Sciphone and it's a true one.

I bought my m1s form hotmid.com for 327$ with dhl shipping.
Package
The item was really well packed even if the xiaomi box can handle some weight (
)
Everything was fine, in the box there were also a EU charger adapter sent for free.
Shipping time was acceptable (things slowed down a bit because of Italy customs)

Issues
The seller agreed to declare the item with a low value (asked him about two times and specified in payment details to declare a low value), but than he sent the item declaring the full value (so if your ordering it from Italy get prepared to pay taxes)
That happened too with Wolf230 another italian user of this forum same story.

@blackstones
Nice job people really needed this topic to know easily where they can get real xiaomi phones.
Can we also add accessories trusted sellers? or do you prefer keep this thread only for the phone?

ok @blackstones
I bought cover and screen protector from Dino Phone Accessories Store 523

for my m1S the box content was:
- nillkin black cover + 2 screen protector included in the cover box
- another screen protector from nillkin

Cover fits perfectly the phone it gives a nice solid feeling
the only downside its a bt difficult to use volume buttons

I bought the 32gb versione of mi2 from ******* with several accessories, some original and some not.

I only encountered some problem and delay because I ordered it the 19th (the first day after the chinese new year) when they were full of orders and I also had the bad luck to choose some colours that weren't in stock and i recived it this monday after 3 days from the shipment (instead the about 4/6 days for Italy with DHL)

Im not really sure if you are complaining or being happy.
Well its sort of natural that they would have a lot of orders since it was Chinese new year and all of the orders stack up.
The thing about colours makes me unsure since it sounds like you got the item faster then expected since it took 3 days instead of 4-6 days with DHL.
Maybe you can re-write what you mean in a more proper way so people are sure what you mean or just inform if you where happy about the shipping times since i'm a little unsure what you are trying to say :confused:
