    I purchased two Mi 8 Plus 8GB 128GB via Amazon UK. Included was a safety manual (with silly guidance on not using phone in thunderstorm!) but NO USER MANUAL. Without a user manual, the phones are useless - e.g. the on-screen instructions on the device says "insert SIM according to user manual". I've looked on the WWW but have not been able to find a UK manual. I've contacted Amazon and they were unable to find one either. I am now awaiting response from Xiaomi before I raise an official complaint to Amazon, returning (with regret) two beautiful highly-specified devices as "unfit for purpose as supplied".
