perception & reality often differs; time lag between china availability and local availability has been reducing

personally feel we should commend those distributors for organising experiential [not experimental lah ] events so that people can do proper hand-on, without being restricted by those tethering cables at telco shops.

not sure if you noticed, ECS [1 of the xiaomi distributors] recently even started to sell export products [e.g. 45w type-c charger] due to local demand

sure, pls continue to buy export set if u are comfortable with china rom with no google play, or hacked rom. But do note some of those hacked rom are either buggy or have spyware inside.

and just to clarify, nothing wrong with buying export set, i bought export set xiaomi notebook, cos it was not sold officially locally, but had to go through a roundabout way to get windows to appear in english. if a specific xiaomi product is available locally, i would personally recommend buying local set due to warranty assurance.

pricing-wise, it will always be difficult to compare export set price with local set price.

whether u buy export or local, still welcome you to join the upcoming event; got many xiaomi products to test, not just redmi 5 and redmi 5 plus

Kudo to u for writing so much.. Yet it is useless.. See the mi mix2 they only bring in 64gb..knn even if mi 5 plus come in they also selling the lower end model... They are simply treating us like dumpling ground.. Almost all my xiaomi products are got from export and yet there is an official xiaomi distributor here.. U see the insult.. I rather they close down the singapore distributor and concentrate to sell from over sea and provide a service center locally can already..

agreed re: mix2; a couple of us have provided feedback to ECS, one the local distributors. [p.s. there is a 2nd distributor, EIN, currently more low profile, but they are opening more outlets]

the sad reality is that xiaomi china has reduced their focus on singapore, they are concentrating on bigger markets like india and indonesia

re: closing down distributor and just provide service centre to service overseas sets, that is logistically not possible

whether which variant of the redmi 5 plus is coming, we still don't know, hopefully all variants will be available, like previous rmn4 series
