No band 20 on this, right?
That code is mentioned on the thread you linked to. Near the end. Is there any point in starting a new thread?

Right

Right


Well wrong actually - if it's the P2a42 model then it does have band 20. I should know, i've got one.

Although having just clicked the link after posting, i can see it's the P2C72 model so you are, in fact, right

To throw another spanner in the works - there's a thread on changing the ROM to the p2a42:

I'm fairly certain that flashing a different rom on to the phone still won't give you band 20 though.

Does that require root. I want band 20 but my banking app refuses to work on rooted phones.

Dude just install Xpossed framework and install root hider. It will hide the fact your phone is rooted and you can install your banking app

What would be the advantage of doing this? The ROW rom works perfectly and gets OTA updates so I don't understand why you would root the phone and flash the UK rom on it?

In fact just checked mine, the sticker that was on the back of it is P2c72 but when I go into settings and about phone the model number is P2a42 and Build number is P2a42_S244_170725_ROW.

This is how it came from GearBest so it's already been converted to the P2a42?!

I tried rootcloak several years ago and that failed. Probably something I did wrong but it's put me off rooting my current phone. I'll do some research on root hider and see if people have had success.
So if these are selling as P2c72 but as Sp0oner reported the model number is P2a42 - can we say that these are all Band 20 then?


Sp0oner - what charger did your phone come with?
I just recieved mine this morning i ordered the p2a42 but says p2c72 on box
I wouldn't let the lack of B20 put you off buying this phone unless you live in the sticks. I've been using one for around 2 months and have not once had a problem with the signal, i Live in Stockport and work in Macclesfield. Macclesfield isn't a big town by any means and yet i always have a strong signal and great speeds. No brainer at this price.
Great phone. Both my kids have these (via the Three deal) and they love it. My older son had he chance to replace it with a new iPhone 6 Plus and passed on that

Would it work in UK and Europe without band 20?

Friend of mine did this, as their phone came with the p2c72 rom - (they're using 3 network UK no b20).
But then (looking at other posts above) it may come with p2a42 rom already installed.
As someone stated in the other post, on Aliexpress the handset is the P2C72 version but they install the P2A42 firmware before shipping according to the items description.

It is p2a42 installed just turned it on p2c72 on box
Best phone I've ever owned, performance is fast and responsive and the battery life is unreal. I can't believe this price for what you're getting - the device blows more expensive alternatives away.

It is just a software change, B20 will still not be available on the phone. What they are doing is installing the P2a42 ROW rom on the phone so you aren't stuck with a Chinese rom on the phone.

The charger is still the Chinese charger but they include a UK adaptor with it. You will want to keep the Chinese charger with the adaptor as it is a fast charger and charges from 0-100% in 90 minutes which is impressive for such a large battery.

Root with magisk. It can pass Google's SafetyNet and hide in other apps e.g. Android Pay/Pokémon Go/Snapchat etc
Thanks OP
Which shipping method is best to select
How does this compare (for moderate usage) to the Redmi Note 4 (with B20) at £100?

The slowest/cheapest. Less chance of customs slobbering all over it.

I'm on ID mobile, but they run on 3.

Equally, even if i wasnt i might change at some point I think worth holding out for
The lenovo P2 won`t work with 4g on the O2 network in the uk .
does it work on plusnet ok ? and do banking apps work natwest etc
Ok just got mine delivered p2c72 rom.


Will look into changing the rom as there is no google playstore and the apps are all in chinese.
