Post tracking info....
Did you pre-clear?

Not pre-cleared I asked but they said it was only for high value items? This is a MI box bought for $50

If you ask me that cleared means SA Customs information/Paper work send to customs completed. Don't think your package booked into SA yet.

Hi, Could you please tell me what the difference is between normal and expedited delivery on garbed and which is better? Expedited is more expensive but will that give me full tracking of my item? Also how would I know what import duties would be due? Considering the pocophone I saw on there for $369 and now comparing with the Honor 8x also :)

Expedited is the most expensive, but should ship the quickest (via DHL is I'm not mistaken). Priority line ships via Aramex and expect just under 2 weeks. I paid R250 duties for my pocophone.

Thinking of getting a pocophone as well. Are you happy with it?
Had a 2 month old Mi A2 lite when I saw Poco going on sale. Was in two minds about getting it, but could only hold out for so long. Bought it still holding onto my old phone thinking if it's crappy I can always sell it.

Got my phone last week and it only took my 2 days to realize I'm not going back to A2. Now so glad I bought this phone as it's way better than my A2 that was almost the same price.

Yes would recommend, for the price you going really struggle to find anything that can compete.

Pocophone specs in the chassis and screen of the Mi Max 3 would be my ideal upgrade
