UK bands missing. Are you buying this phone to use in China and India?

Original Poster

It doesn’t support band 20 (800MHz) makes it a no-no for O2 customers whose LTE service uses this frequency exclusively. MVNO customers from Giff Gaff, Tesco Mobile and Talk Talk are also in the same boat.

Zero is nothing, its the gamble you take when buying from China I'm afraid
Edited by: "skykid3" 28th Oct 2016

I got this phone a couple of months ago from China, cracking phone with top notch build quality. However just be aware that you will most likely need to flash the phone to ensure that the google play store works correctly. There are decent guides here: zukfans.eu/com…ty/ and the process is pretty straightforward.

Just something to keep in mind.

Is this worth the extra £50 over the Redmi Note 3?

​get the huawei p9 lite from ee. £129.99

To get an idea of performance:
Comparision gsmarena.com/com…125

Antutu Benchmark results:
P9 lite: 54000
Redmi Note 3: 78000
Z2: 132000

As you can see these 3 phones are not in the same league at all.

​Mine choice was redmi pro

I have this phone in black that came with the 'international' ROM .... really buggy!
You can flash the official Z2 ROM from India, works very well as everything is in English.
The SD820 & 4GB RAM really makes the experience well worth the £170 I paid for it. The best phone I ever owned so far.

​There are so many versions of the xiaomi redmi note 3 PRO that I've seen on Ali express (I've never used that site before to purchase), so which one is the better/official one to get?

Did you get the same deal as me? Extra 10% off the £189.99 price from UK location?
Best deal I've had in a while!
The play store needs updates uninstalling and rebooting the phone to get apps to install each time you need to update etc and there's 5 pieces of malware but apart from that it's fantastic!

Link???Are you sure it's the p9 lite NOT P8?

Yes. That was the deal.

If you're brave enough I suggest you flash the Indian ROM and you'll get an OTA update & security patches.
ZUKFANS
That international ROM are missing some features if you don't have the China or Indian ROM.

Really makes you wander why some phones with similar spec cost you £500+

why band 20 missing, i m stuck with vodafone :-(

All UK networks actually use band 20.

O2 and Vodafone use it as their main frequency.
EE / 3 for VoLTE and suburban/rural coverage.

Having owned the z1, I'll go with :
Proper UK warranty, as opposed to risking losing all your money.
Wireless charging
Waterproofing
Better camera
Better build quality
Better support mechanism
Better screen
Higher resolution
Proper UK Band support
.....

It's a lot of phone for the money, but don't forget, it is ultimately 'cheap' for what it is for a reason...

Why does it look like a sandwich?

interesting petition on Band 20 HERE

I was thinking about ordering this phone, i used to have an LG G4 but it ended up getting destroyed whilst in transport back from warranty repair so i'm now looking for a budget replacement. I was initially considering the OnePlus 3 but despite being excellent value, it is a little over-budget at £329 especially since the £20 price-hike following the Brexit vote, and this is made even worse considering the fact it is a 5 month old device and soon-to-be outdated by the new rumoured 'OnePlus 3T'. It makes little sense to buy the OP3 at this point and besides, there is almost a month waiting list at the moment due to high demand.

The ZUK Z2 looks like a great alternative at a much more pocket-friendly price! What makes this phone stand out to me is that it has almost the same specs as the OP3 with SD820 (Minus AMOLED and 2GB RAM) for around 50-60% of the price, so a massive saving in comparison. I was also looking at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Pro but Helio X20 is useless for developmental support. With the 10% discount code and 10% Quidco the ZUK Z2 works out at a cracking deal. My only concern is the shipping costs, is it nessacary to have the £13.37 Duty & Tax Insurance or is it unlikely customs charges will be applied? And also, should something happen to the device once i have it and need repairing under the warranty, what would happen in that scenario?

People who already have already bought the phone from other distributors for less than £180, where did you purchase from and what was the experience like?

if only it had a sd slot...

i wouldn,t use this company try buying 2 things 1 broke 1 never arrived

If you get hit with customs, it'll be a lot more than 13 quid...
As for warranty... If it goes faulty. Bin it. Seriously. There is little hope in my experience of successfully shipping a phone back to China for repair. Let alone the actual cost of shipping it in the first place, the chance of it actually arriving where you send it is remote...

I bought one a few months ago. Malware in the provided operating system so no chance of using the door banking apps etc. Flashed a virus free from but after 4 months the phone would only boot to the splash screen, wouldn't boot into recovery and wouldn't be flashed manually via PC. Completely broken. £200 wasted.

I bought from a seller called ltegrow, it arrived well within a week of purchasing it and no customs to pay as it wasn't coming from China!
The phone was brand new, no problems at all apart from what everyone else who bought the device globally had I.e. Play store needing to have updates uninstalled and rebooting to get the apps on your phone.
I bought the phone and then added 3 HDMI leads to activate 10% off.
They only have white left at £204.99 ATM so adding a 99p item would make your purchase price £184.59.
It's £14 more than what I paid but still not a bad price. If you have nectar vouchers from the 'get half your points back' deal, or a personal discount code that works on this then it could be an even better deal.
Here's the link anyway

I'm sure you could sell on eBay to someone that's a massive phone flashing geek.
They would probably see it as a challenge to get it working again!

Don't use a crappy network and you will be fine. <1ghz frequencies shouldn't be used for LTE, its just that some networks here are too backward to upgrade.

They're all official, they just have different storage sizes, that's all.

Once your add the shipping it's £204.73.
How are you getting free shipping?
