If it is over whatever the value is, is marked correctly and goes through parcel force or fedex you probably will.

If it's low value, marked as low value or sent via a cheap postage method you probably won't.

All goods imported into the UK are liable to VAT and import duties. How much is down to the value of the item or type of item iirc

I have had both a laser pen and a phone from Hongkong, both arrived within 7-10 days with no problems.

Nope - Gifts are still liable. It only increases the limit slightly to around 36 I think so this would get hit.
