I made a little unboxing video of my xiaomi m1s , just to proove to people that i have one of them! XD The video was uploaded on the channel XiaomiUnofficial The phone was bought on hotmid.com 327 $ Item was shipped from China to Italy shipping method was dhl (but at last was shipped by ems, because i was in the remote are of dhl) the phone was bought on 02/11/12 seller sent me the tracking number on the 12/11/12, after a mail asking for the tracking item went in Italy on the 13/11/12 i've got the package on the 16/11/12 The amount of time was 15 days I had to pay custom because the seller declared the full value of the phone, but previously we accorded a lower value and sent it as a mp4. He wasn't affordable in that sense, Wolf230 had the same experience of mine from hotmid. The phone is a real xiaomi everything was ok the box the charger the cable. So for me hotmid.com is a safe place to buy a phone, but the seller will always declare the full value of the item and this could be a problem. I hope my experience will be helpful to newcomers.
