GearBest is hosting a Mid-Year Mega Sale and there are some super discounts on our favourite Chinese tech. With deals on everything from phones and tablets to laptops and gadgets, one deal you really won't want to miss is Xiaomi's Mi 9 - down from its £499 UK RRP to just £302.40!

Knocked off the top spot in our best phones chart only by OnePlus 7 Pro (also down from £699 to just £584 for the 8GB/256GB model), the Mi 9 is Xiaomi's top-end Android phone and offers better value for money than any Android phone to date, even at its full price.

It's a true competitor to phones that cost double the price, devilishly fast, insanely beautiful and packing all the latest tech, including the Snapdragon 855, an in-display fingerprint sensor, 20W wireless charging and a triple-lens rear camera that headlines with a super-sized 48Mp lens. No wonder it was one of our top award winners at MWC 2019 - you can read our full review here.

Some other Xiaomi deals you won't want to miss include the Mi 9 SE, which goes on sale in the UK today.

Here are some highlights:

There's also a cracking deal on the Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter, which will cost you £399 in the UK but only £320 from GearBest.
