Great phone and amazing specs for the price. Lowest ever (and no it isn't the latest Samsung)

Why do need to buy a smartphone. You can do with a feature phone or even … Why do need to buy a smartphone. You can do with a feature phone or even live without a phone as they did in the stone age.



Your mentality is an electronics manufacturer's dream. You post about SD835 and say how you wouldn't be buying a SD820 phone now because it's last year's processor. You post on any 1080p TVs/media players stating how it's obsolete and everyone should be buying 4K devices. You post on non B20 phones saying how people not getting the fastest available speeds are living in the stone age. All the while, ignoring the fact that your opinions or preferences towards electronics don't apply to everyone else. But by all means, throw your money at the latest offerings and try to convince others to do the same. Then next year when manufacturers announce new tech, state to everyone how last years tech is obsolete and that we should be buying the current latest. Manufacturer's are able to keep hiking up the prices of newer models because people like you will still pay in order to have what they believe is the "best". I feel bad for you because it doesn't seem you'd be content with anything below that and will be constantly paying more. Just take a look at the range in prices in the phone market. Manufacturer's know people have varying needs and preferences, including how much they wish to spend. Yet you seem unable to grasp this notion and constantly comment as if people need to have the same preferences as you.

If you think you can get a "flagship" phone for £128 then this probably isn't the phone for you.

Band 20 is one of the 4G bands (800mhz) used in the UK. It's the lowest frequency 4G band, which means it travels the furthest and is the best at getting into buildings, but doesn't have as much capacity as the higher frequency bands.

Basically, no Band 20 support means your 4G might not be as good as it could be, especially indoors or outside of towns/cities. The vast majority of UK networks that offer 4G data use Band 20 to some degree, there may be some MNVOs which don't use Band 20 at all.

i think its like 20% of the item value not totally sure tho



Plus the "handling fees" charged by the courrier/post office which can be higher than the tax itself. Been there and suffered myself. That said, stuff usually seems to get through....seems to be pot luck.
Very good phone for this price

There is no SD slot, so no, but it has 64GB storage so I don't find the lack of SD slot to be an issue. This is an incredible phone for the money, I've had mine for a few months now.

Specs on the site says dual nano sim for this handset...

do you have to pay the import duty, is there anyway to avoid it
I got one of these a few weeks ago for £129.95. It arrived without any import duties and TCB tracked @ £8.08.

anyway to get rid of import duty?

Usually, if an item is sent by tracked (or "express")delivery it'll not only incur an import charge of around £10 or 20% (whichever is higher) , but the UK courier (e.g. Parcelforce) will add a "handling fee" of £12-15.
If it's not tracked, it'll get handed over to Royal Mail in the UK and you'll stand a chance of not getting any or a small charge. Plus the likelyhood is that the seller will still get a tracking code from their courier which you can use to track but it's updated very slowly.

You almost bought it? That's strange. Lenovo is a Chinese brand and Banggood aren't a UK supplier with full warranty but you have warned people to "get a grip" about these particular things. So what is your basis for determining which Chinese brands are what you call "Chinese junk" "put together in a rice field with inferior parts."?

Nope no extra charges and I have some cash back pending

understand that but jimbob has opened my eyes and im taking a more constructive view.if this perticular phone had band 20 i would have definately tried it at the price for the specs.just checking ali express and banggood now for decent band 20 phones.
​Look up the recently posted global editions of the Xiaomi note 4. Or note 3 se . Think that will be what you are looking for less powerful than this true but more than powerful enough for most people good battery and can get band 20, it's 2 sims or a sim and memory card looking at 32gb 3gb ram. Using one now and I have been very happy at this price. My last phone a moto play never got 4g inside or at either of the 2 places I worked. One was countryside now I do on the same network. I used to blame the network now realise it's equally as much the phone.

Is your network o2? B20 might not be as crucial as you're thinking. More info about frequencies here. B20 is 800mhz. There's a lot of people with non B20 phones that use 4G perfectly fine. For this price point, you won't find an equivalent spec phone with B20 however the Redmi Note 4 Global Version and Redmi Note 3 Special Edition mentioned above are popular B20 phones at this price point.

Band 20 = 800MHz


thanks

dread can you tell me that i will definately be fine with this phone and will it affect the stability of my 4g because where i use it its flying and i use my signal for work so it has to be the fastest available at all the times.
How does fair this against the xiaomi mi5?
looking at the xiomi red note 4 with ali express currently 122.76 but until the end of the hour you get 15% cashback with quidco.doesnt have the snapdragon processor like this phone alough.

​Below £135 there is no duty, but above £15 you need to pay VAT. Also often charged a fee to process it. Usually it is £8. In total you will be approx £160 less, not 127.

If you're on EE, B20 isn't essential for you. EE only begun using B20 November last year. Article here. Unless you noticed a significant increase in 4G performance after November compared to beforehand, then you're likely not even utilising their B20. Try "LTE Discovery" app to see if it tells you which mobile frequency you're using.

As for the Redmi Note 4. The "Global Version" is Snapdragon 625 and has B20. What you're seeing is likely the original Mediatek Redmi Note 4.
