I am a UK resident and I’m interested in the Xiaomi mi max 3 and if I were to buy the Chinese version, what would i need to do to ensure I can use it. Meaning the language isn’t in Chinese and it has Google play.
If you could direct me to a website, video or a detailed description from yourself I would greatly appreciate it.

Xiaomi phones with a Chinese rom have English. Also the Mi Store on the phone allows you to install the complete Google Apps package.
Usually after a while when the phone has been out, a global rom will be released for you to flash if you want. This usually has no chinese bloat and Google stuff preinstalled.July 20, 2018 at 8:44 pm #144658KishanParticipant

Does it matter if I order the chinese version? If it doesn’t, where would be the most reliable place to order the Xiaomi mi max 3 from if you’re a UK resident.July 29, 2018 at 6:22 am #144881MajkelParticipant

I suggest you contact the phone manufacturer. Those Chinese phones are mystery for most except those who made it.

Make sure the phone has the Global Rom installed. Then everthing should be fine. The Chinese Rom does have English installed in it, but has a few extra apps that are China specific. I used the China Rom for a while and it was fine. However, I recommend you check the phone comes with the with the official Xiaomi Global Rom installed, and the you will have no problems and receive regular OTA updates.February 27, 2020 at 8:27 am #182751
