Hello,

My phone's battery has given up on me. Looking to purchase a cheap (probably chinese) smartphone that will work in UK with 3G/4G on Three/EE networks. Looking for a good screen, great battery life (2 days ideally), enough RAM and processing speed to play games on it (I have a lot of time to kill on daily train commutes).

Been looking at the likes of Cubot Pro 4G and Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro. Both around 100-150£ mark. If there is something better in that price range, I'd appreciate some help.

There are plenty of decent cheap phones from China, but very few have 4G at 800Mhz (band 20); this wont be an issue on some networks, but others use band 20 extensively, especially outside of major towns and cities.

I'm using a Doogee X6 Pro. £63 on Amazon last time I checked. 3000mAh battery, but usually need to charge it everyday as I'm always paying games. 5.5" screen, 2gb RAM, Android 6.0.

I get no 4G signal on Three where I live, only a meek 3G signal. With EE there is 4G signal but it's a rural area so does that mean they'll be using band 20?

Thanks for advice I will now be trying to find a handset that has band 20.
