    Please give me detailed instructions how to get Pixel 3a working in SA / Redmi Note 8 OR Redmi 9?

    Is legit?

    I want to buy a Poco X3 from them because nobody else ships to South Africa really. I've read some reviews about them, but they are mostly negative. If anyone has ordered from them before, how was the service? Where can you buy a Poco X3 here in SA?
