I have never ordered mobilephone from outside of uk, just decided to order phone from gear best. But I don't know what things to look on the phone to make it sure it will work in UK, I mean I need a phone which will work when i insert the sim card in. ..a phone ready to go without any modification...I hope it makes sense.
Regards, thanks in advance.

Found a site that lets you search by model, country and network to see if it works.

The one you linked will work 3g and 4g in the UK.

You'll have to take my reply with a pinch of salt, as I'm fairly new to the whole Chinese phone in the UK. (I'd wait for someone to confirm this to be 100% sure).

http://www.4g.co.uk/4g-frequencies-uk-need-know/

Three(3) uses the following.

4g/LTE: 800MHz & 1800MHz
3G: 2100MHz
2G: NA.

This is my understanding.

First phone I've picked on the site.
http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_367774.html

Network:
2G: GSM 900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz CDMA 2000 BC0
4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz

You just need to match up the single bands for each one. I've underlined the two for 3g and 4g.

but as above, I am new to all this, as well. >.<

Gearbest are a nightmare company to deal with , you will wait ages then be lied to about your order
If no phone eventually turns up you are offered credit to your account
Some on here have had smooth deals with them but most have had a nightmare
I was bitten twice by them and will never use them again , good luck !

My Xiaomi Yi camera got lost in the post. An **** me Gearbest are one of the worst company I have ever purchased from. I lost count how many times they offered me credit for the item or to refund me half or the original cost.

Got there in the end only when I just let paypal do the work but I would never purchase from them again. Good luck with your item and I hope you enjoy it and don't want to send it back ;)

its only when things go wrong that they make you jump through hoops (e.g return to China at your expense).

Would paypal pay out if you hadn't returned the faulty item?

This is a special version which has UK band 20 (hardly any do) and sealed box from aliexpress who are genrally very good for phones.

Highly unlikely, you'd have to show you'd return it before PP would refund.
