International edition with B20 for O2 users

The "International Version" doesn't have B20. Check the spec differences when you switch between "International Version" and "Global Version". The "International Version" doesn't list B20. It's a name Gearbest have applied themselves to refer to China model with Global ROM. It's also stated in the Q&A. The B20 one is "Global Version" and costs around £90.

ah fair enough, i didn't see i just assumed with most other models having an international edition including B20 that this, an international model too, would have

How is the call quality on this one. Redmi Note 2 call and signal quality was bad.

I'd say others will have made that assumption too. It's misleading since "International" and "Global" would be interchangeable to many people so Gearbest using it to distinguish the non B20 from B20 is confusing. Honorbuy's Redmi 4A product page for B20 model calls it both Global and International whereas the non B20 pages say neither. Even Aliexpress sellers seem to follow this convention too and use International/Global to refer to Global Version so Gearbest's naming is at fault.

Pardon my stupidity but ... what is B20 ? And would either the "global" or "international" version work on 3's 4G network ? And would they be a substantial improvement on my, current, Moto G running Android 5.1 ?

Yes this phone is perfect for anyone not needing O2's network. So 3, EE and Vodafone should work (i think)

B20 is 800MHz, used by all UK networks to some extent. 3 use it too though not to my detriment - I happily receive 4G data without B20 on my Xiaomi Mi Max.
Can't say if this is a substantial improvement over your phone though Google is just a tap away. :)

B20 - Band 20 (800mhz) is a 4G frequency used by a number of mobile operators but not all Chinese phones include it. More info here. It's not required for Three 4G. They do use B20 but it's only for their 4G Supervoice which only a handful of phones can utilise. Three mainly use B3 for 4G which is covered by both versions so either would be okay for Three. If you mean a 1st gen Moto G, it would be an improvement but I'm not sure how much of a substantial one it would be. Bare in mind the Redmi 4A is the cheapest/lowest spec current Xiaomi phone. The other 5" Redmi phones are better specced and would be a bigger improvement.

To me International & Global are the same thing so I could've bought this In error!

If you have an original Moto G, then this phone benchmarks as twice as fast, according to Antutu.

Can someone in the know advise if this would be the best smartphone deal under £90 ? Or are there others I should be looking at? Mine is on it's last legs, but don't want to buy this if there are better options out there? Not looking for a phone much bigger than 5"

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
