How will recovery boot confirm if it is original?I bought my MI3 from there had it now for a week and it is 100% original. Shipment was very fast and well-packaged and reasonable prices.
Download cpu-z to confirm the authenticity and attempt to boot into Recovery mode and you can see if it is genuine or not
About 6GB instead of 8gb seems okej phone has 8gb but only 6GB is available. veriftionen is not always available if xiaomishop.com buy their phones from Unicom local shop.I did use CPU-Z and specifications are OK for almost everything but... I have 320 dpi (312 dpi in original specs) and 6GB instead of 8GB internal storage. That is big difference. I will post screen shots of CPU-Z.
In addition I can not pass verification on http://order.mi.com/service/imei . Also there was no 20 code serial number on the scratch label which wess77 mentioned.
I hope that they aren't combining original and fake products. Just to earn some extra profit.
