Hi,

I have purchased the Red Rice Hongmi from this seller:

http://www.**********.com/store/pro...-Mobile-Phones-1GB-4GB/114122_1493990051.html

They appear to have good feedback and claims both on his page and chat that the phone is Original. As I read here (unfortunately after my purchase), ********** is perhaps not a good place to buy Xiaomi phone, so I'm a bit scared now. Is there any way I can understand if the phone is original or not?

Unfortunately the product was NOT original but a very good copy. Almost everything seemed right (no preinstalled Antutu, chinese recovery, sticker with code on the back of the box, etc) until I got in the Mobile Uncle Tools and checked and found lower resolution and different proccesor. Please add this seller on the list with untrusted sellers:

on aliexprees, teoretically they only release the money to the seller when the buyer confirms the goods have arrived.
you can contest this situation and cancel the deal, on **********, through the respective options/channels and also on Paypal.
have you tried to do that?
Think positive, you will end up getting you money and keeping a new phone. Original or not will be free.
Grab the money and go buy a real Xiaomi in Antelife.com

I got my money back but lost arround 30$ on shipping costs (I had to ship it back) as well as difference in currency rates ($ to €). Lesson learned! Ordered a new one from Merimobiles and everything went fine.
