    I want to buy the Mi3 64 GB, but it's quite an investment to just get it from any website and risk getting scamed.
    Read a few threads abou *******.com, and having problems with tech support. Also read some reviews of xiaomiworld.com.
    What I would like to know is, where did you buy yours, and are you happy with the service?

    Thanks

    Hi Juan,

    I've placed an order today of the WCDMA version of Mi3/64 GB from *******. The chosen method of delivery is DHL. I'll keep you informed about the delivery and eventual problems - if I encounter them.

    Quick update: the phone was paid 3 days ago but it is still not shipped. Yet the timing is within their stated protocol (shipment within 1-3 days from payment), If it is shipped after today I will consider it as a delay and deviation from their statement and I will require explanation. My location is in Sofia, Bulgaria.

    guys don't be so impatient, this takes time. If it shipped it takes usually only 3 days, but of course they need some time.

    I can also recommend www.tradingshenzhen.de

    Heart they will start in a couple of days also in english. They ship also from China, have really good recommendation in most of the German Forums and speak also good english.

    Quick update(2): the phone was shipped today (day 6 since payment), tracking no. is live. I've emailed the seller about the delay and got back response that it is shipped which was confirmed later on by their automatic mail which contains the tracking details.

    Update (3): sorry for the late reply but I was busy the last few days (playing with the Mi3 among that ;) ). The phone was received exactly 3 days after it was shipped. No import problems were encountered, if you need more details, shoot me a PM. The shipment method works as advertised. The phone is a real masterpiece, I don't have experience with the other Android based phones to compare it to, I am coming from iPhone 3gs/4S. So to recap - ******* is a good seller, comms are not their biggest strength but is a safe choice, it worked for me. Next I am going to order the piston headphones and need to find a decent hard case.

    Please let us know once you will have found what you call a "decent hard case". I got mine from the same dealer where I bought my phone and I do not really like it. The only reason why I bought it was to have some kind of protection. The one I have is from a company called Variz, their webpage can be found here: http://www.hrsphone.com.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'll probably get the 16gb version from them this week.

    I found another place in Shanghai where you can buy it. If you do not like the "bazar-atmosphere" from here, you might want to check out this department store:

    Buynow, 333 Caoxi North Road, Xuhui, Shanghai (ditu, maps).
    This place is about 200m north of the Xiaomi Service Center in Shanghai and just 100m north of exit 2 of the subway station Xujiahui (lines 1&9).

    And this is what it looks like, when coming from that subway station:
