What to expect from Xiaomi in the UK

I'm just back from a visit to Madrid, and one of the places to visit on my list was the Xiaomi store on Puerta del Sol. I know Xiaomi model their stores on Apple, and that impressed me - Apple's flagship store in Madrid is there.

So I went to Puerta del Sol only to find no sign of a Xiaomi store. Eventually I found it, 200m down a side street. I'd include a photo but the road outside was being dug up to re lay a drain, so you wouldn't see it

Inside was a near carbon copy of an Apple store complete with hordes of teenagers, but the store itself was about 1/6 of the size of an average Apple store and they wouldn't let me take any photos.

So I can report that they had 4 phone models on sale, the top one being the Mix 2S and the cheapest being the Mi A2. They were all more expensive than Amazon UK. However on the plus side they also sold the Xiaomi Scooter, electric toothbrush and a rice cooker

I am quite a fan of Xiaomi devices (I have a max 3 sat next to me), but on this showing they have some way to go

World's largest Swiss Army Penknife?

If you should be travelling to Zurich airport, look out for this just before you land - it has taken me several trips to get a picture, but I was ready this time!

iPhone 8 + 256gb Space Grey £630 incl RMSD

I exchanged this last week but have decided it isn't for me - I'd miss Face ID too much.

This has to be the most mint second hand phone I have bought in 10 years, it is immaculate, has never been locked and still has about a month of warranty left. The battery status is 100%. It is boxed with all of the accessories unused - you really could say it looks new

I can trade this in at CPW against a Note 9 for £620* but before I do, I'm offering it here at a breakeven - £630 to include RMSD. It would really be quite a shame if it went off to the recyclers - I have 2-3 days before it has to go, so any takers?

Payment by bank transfer

£630 to include RMSD

*since I have been asked, there is an extra £200 on the Note 9 trade in only

Lenovo Yoga Book Windows 10 Pro £250 incl RMSD

About the smallest Windows 10 Pro notebook I can find. It is really compact but very good for viewing media because of the yoga format. I have used it when travelling with great success. Pretty much the full spec is here, although it doesn't mention the micro SD card slot:

It is boxed in as new condition. I have mislaid the power plug, it is a standard micro USB charger - I will include one with the box
