Is this a good deal? Price seems low, but would using HK spec in the UK be a problem?

Further £8 off by using code NEWARRIVAL & choosing the free economy shipping.

Should be ok, but will be missing certain features that a UK/Euro version has - like no NFC & probably no Force Touch too (as I'm assuming this is the 64Gb version).
Thanks. Don't use NFC...Force Touch sounds neat, but not sure what I'd do with it.

In terms of phone specs, this is better value than the P10 lite in CPW? Appreciate there would be a far worse guarantee with this.

No issues with e.g. band 20 with this phone?

Yes, this would be better than the P10 Lite.

Not 100% about B20 support (even though EGC says it does), that's why I didn't mention it.

If it's a VIE-AL10, then most likely no B20.

Same here, but there's no way I'll be spending ~£600(?) on a phone!
Thanks. I guess if no band 20 I can return (or claim back on credit card if they don't refund), as description is clear in saying it does have it. Anything else I should be thinking about?

Firmware will be English and include Play Store I guess?

Yeah, but you may be liable for return delivery costs? Yes, English can be chosen as a language (for updates too), but you'll need to install G'Play yourself (easy enough apparently).

Most of the quirks & benefits are mentioned in this XDA thread: To VIE-AL10 or not?
P.S. seeing that they have a Chinese version listed separately for more (£359.99), eglobalcentral.co.uk/hua…tml, which also mentions the following:

"This is a Chinese version smartphone.
Q: What does it mean by Chinese version?
A: Chinese version mobile phones does not come with Google Play initially. User will need to download Google Play from the phone's app store. The phone also comes with pre-installed Chinese apps which you may choose to disable. Please note any update of the ROM will void the warranty that is provided by us."

I'm thinking (but may be wrong), that the HK version may differ from the Chinese version & could actually be an International version (VIE-L29), & if so, will have B20 & NFC.
