Will phone support all 4g bands?

No band 20.

A lot of phone for your money. You may have to flash the rom according to reviews to enable Google Play Store to work.

Damn, £123 for a Snapdragon 820 is ridiculous oO

O2 now use band 3 (1800) as well. I think atm it's only available in cities and they are rolling out to other areas as well. I can confirm it's working in London. My old chinese OP2 suddenly start showing 4G.

silicon.co.uk/net…194

Been weighing up Chinese phones for a few weeks and have 99% settled on this one.

I would leave Giffgaff for bt mobile (EE) so band 20 isn't an issue for this phone

Anyone have any experience of bang good for phones?

My OnePlus One has been showing 4g for ages. I'm using Tesco mobile (which uses 02 as far as I know). If the phone is showing 4g, does it meant it is actually using it?

Shame it's only a 5 inch screen. After using Samsung Notes I don't think I could do that small. Good the camera on this? I'm sure that and lots of other obvious questions like band 20 have been covered on a previous listing of this phone (different deal). So go and look it up people....

Funny you should say that I'm deliberately downsizing as my Vodafone smart ultra 6 is a tiny bit too big

Will Life/Plusnet (EE) work fine on this phone and will standard UK banking apps run? It looks well speced although I'd prefer a larger screen ideally

Not really 2 years old, was released in samples in late Q4 2015 to manufactures , most high end phones got released in late q2 2016 , I would say roughly not even a half year old in general public release . this phone was released in June 2016

​821 is not a significant improvement at all. I'm going from an 801 to an 820, both phones cost the same price too so

I've just got Android 7.0 on mine now.

Hi, did you get upgrade from Chinese or Indian ROM?
Does it have Google Play Store and services, and has full translation to English. Does U-Health app is working and translated to English?

Would you mind sharing some screenshots?

Also, anyone has this Aluminim bumper?

I had been on the Indian ROM for awhile ...

I wanted to try the new Android 7.0, for this you have to go back to official Chinese ROM first.
Then get your phone to 2.3.042_ST version to receive the new OTA.

Just downloading Android 7 to my phone now.

It's a very good phone and ridiculously good value for the money. Only issues are that the camera isn't great (though apparently the Nougat ROM improves things in this regard), and I'm not the biggest fan of the ZUI brand of Android.

It looks as though there is already unofficial Lineage OS support from the enthusiast community so I'll probably soldier on with ZUI for a bit longer until a nice, stable L-OS release is available to try.

Coming from a phone which had Band 20 support, I have to say I don't notice a great deal of difference with the lack of it on the Z2. I'm on BT mobile at the moment which uses the EE network so I still have 4G available much of the time and most of the times I don't are when I'm at home or work with Wifi access. Not a real issue for me.

no band 3 or 20 so no good for Three, I was wondering, looked it up.

You don't need band 20 on EE.

What's linage OS?

What is a Chinese/Indian ROM?

Im making the move to android and fancy a huawei p9 or Honour.
I have the huawei smart watch and it's superb but useless with iOS - I'm peeved at apples restrictive business model. Being a noob to android I'm not sure why to get although I like the phones I mentioned - I'm also with EE and heavy on 4g usage. My iphone6 is leaving me! But android appears higher maintainaceand a few mine fields along the way..?? Advice appreciated

Gollywood

What is a Chinese/Indian ROM?


Its a version of Android. Both comes with ZUI, which is "theme" on top of Android which cannot be changed.
Chinese ROM - comes without Play Store, Google Services and you need to find apk and installed (not always working well) [English Language available but not everything translated everywhere]
Indian ROM - comes with Play Store, Google Services. Everything should be translated to English

You can connect phone o PC/Laptop and "re-install" ROM, a lot of links to Indian ROMs in previous listing of ZUK Z2. Search for ZUK Z2 and read notes on expired deal with over 1000 heat

I had difficulty with the original China ROM and since switching to the Indian one I've had no problems with the Play Store, health app, and updates. No Android 7 yet.

I've got the bumper. It's good quality, but not that great a match for the white phone. I'm getting paranoid tho' with the glass back and I think I'll get a case that covers it.

Thanks,
I am waiting for my Z2 in black, few weeks I guess. Thinking to stick with Indian ROM or if it comes with Chinese upgrade to Nougat and see how works. If not that good then load Indian ROM and wait for Indian Nougat release.

​the GSM bands seemed not to match for three after I verified online what gives? did three upgrade or? is it the ROM you have?

Can't believe how cheap this phone is. I've got one and for £140ish, you get a snapdragon 820 CPU, 1080p screen fingerprint sensor, 4GB ram, reasonable camera (it ain't spectacular - but not as crap as the usual chinese ones), good call quality, decent speaker (loudspeaker is very clear - I don't care about music quality). The ONLY thing missing from this is a micro SD card slot, which I'm quite cheesed off at, but if I wanted one I'd have to pay double!

Just shows how much overpriced all other phones are.

FYI I'm on three and I get 4G, it's band 3 according to LTE Discovery app.

Yes. Both are on Three. They worked with older ROMs too.

I got mine for around £180 from ebay UK seller. I thought it was a very good price for SD820, 4GB/64GB ... if you don't need NFC.

At this price, it's the best value for the money.

To get the best from the phone, I recommend you update from the pre-installed international ROM.

Btw, I only been on Android 7.0 for 2 days ... so far, so good. No crashes yet.
Edited by: "iDealYou" 23rd Jan

thanks for details, I just do not understand how everywhere it says three is band 3 and 20... and yet it works...

was considering G4 plus but this very tempting...

Damnnn. Why must it no have sd card slot??

looking into it, no sd card slot, no charger included, shipping from HK so possible import tax and also the big Chinese new year means phone won't be there for a while... decent specs appears to be cheap for what it is though...
