I was thinking of buying this but it has the same hardware as that of mi box 3. Plus I read reviews on amazon.com and reddit that after oreo update it does not even play 1080p videos on kodi properly. Also amazon prime is not supported

Don’t forget that you may never receive also. My 1st order was a dash cam. It never came. By the time I got refund (70days after order), dollar exchange rate became less. Finally I got 10% less amount than what I paid. That will be my 1st and last order from a Chinese site.

Yeah . it depends on the seller for a reputed seller that will be a rare case.
That being said, all purchases are not 100% safe

Lets hope for the best.

Mumbai customs takes longer time to clear items when compared to Chennai customs..
Got this feedback from different forums.

Sorry for the late reply.
Nobody can assure you that, one thing you can do is declare a lesser value (not very less, believable amount and opt for a free shipping)

I didn’t paid any customs charge for my Mi TV box which was around Rs.4100.
Mine came through India Post.
