Yes tell it to the networks who spent millions buying the B20 bandwidth … Yes tell it to the networks who spent millions buying the B20 bandwidth from the government. They were so stupid they did not consult you or the Chinese Government to decide which bands to use. Don't tell porkies here.



EE started using B20 November 2016. They bought it in 2013. According to you and your logic, their network must not have been functional before that point despite them having the widest UK coverage even prior to that. The millions of UK customers they service must not have received 4G before 6 months ago since they weren't using B20 until then. Don't mistake a network's purchase of bandwidth and desire to expand coverage to suggest that it is essential for everyone in the UK. Three don't use their B20 in the same way. They use it for their 4G supervoice which only a select number of phones, can utilise. EE were stupid not to consult you and deploy it sooner since according to you it is "best 4G band" apparently. Three were stupid not to consult with you so that their B20 works in the way you perceive it to.

"Don't tell porkies here" says the person who has stated:
- I only post non B20 phones when I haven't posted a single one
- Non B20 phones are mini tablets in UK and only work in China even though plenty of HUKD members use them
- Gearbest contacted you in email months ago asking to post on here and be paid so you want nothing to do with them despite ending up posting a Gearbest deal
- That UK credit companies refuse to help if it's a purchase from abroad, in response to someone stating over £100, even though they are required to by law... etc etc.
You've been outed as a liar many times when you've tried to make your opinion seem more valid, yet you accuse other people of lying amongst many other things, when they oppose your opinion.

No B20

Good to see the price coming down, I have a Redmi note 4 on its way to replace my other half's LG G4 - if the note 4 isn't up to the job I'll probably get one of these instead. Believe the camera on these to be pretty good, maybe not G4 good, but as good as you'll get on a new phone at this sort of money.

That is mentioned in my post its not a problem to me even though im on tesco hence O2 i have the redmi note 3 currently had it since its launch February 2016 china version so no band 20 and im using the original chinese rom got rid of unwanted apps with no problems and installed google services myself fantastic phone as for band 20 mine uses 3g hspa+ and is excellent for what i use eg facebook , mobdro for watching football and horse racing with no buffering and general browsing so don't see 4g making much difference to me

Do you see the Redmi Note4 as an upgrade to the LG G4? I'm asking because my wife's G3 is dying and she wants the G4, I'm trying to convince her to go for the Redmi Note4 as it'll be over £100 cheaper for a start.

I got the Redmi Note3 for my Dad and was pretty impressed with it to be honest.

I really wish Xiaomi would release more Mi models with b20. It's important imo and they do release on other models. I love the quality and price of my redmi note 3 and would be looking at xiaomi again, especially this.

​I had my LG G4 swiped 9 months back so had to get a replacement. Went for the redmi note 3 Pro SE. What a superb phone. Screen and camera are not in same class though. Build quality is a step up (imo). I believe build on note 4 is even better and battery life with the 625 soc is meant to be very good. So if screen and camera are priority you would need to look elsewhere.

​This is is not a cheap £5 phone. At least it should work properly as a Phone. It makes no sense to go through the hassle of buying it from China when it will not even get the best reception possible. Big Negative.

Where i live in the rhondda south wales there is no O2 4g so thats not down to chinese phones not having band 20 and like i said the 3g signal is more than fast enough for my use i could change to another network but no point i have a very good deal with tesco been with them since they started and like i said the hspa+ signal is superb i believe its equivalent to 3.5g and well fast enough for me

You continue to be willfully ignorant of the fact people use non B20 phones perfectly fine on 4G. They do "work properly as a phone". As I said before, your preferences and opinions are not applicable to everyone else and hopefully you realise that someday. People will make decisions based on what they need and what they want to spend regardless of whether it makes sense to you or not. Stop trying to constantly dictate what others should be buying.

Yes tell it to the networks who spent millions buying the B20 bandwidth from the government. They were so stupid they did not consult you or the Chinese Government to decide which bands to use. Don't tell porkies here.

Not telling porkies i put the fact that it did not support band 20 in the post description if you cant be bothered to read all of the description you shouldn't comment you obviously dont like chinese phones Xiaomi in particular as i noticed you have similar comments on quite a few Xiaomi posts on here recently so just stick to 800 pound Korean ones that explode in your pocket but hey at least they got Band 20

​Don't worry he was stupid enough to pay extra for a letv max 2 with band 20 as he thought that it was a hardware restriction in that phone. What a tool. Seems he ignores any useful information available on the Internet too.
Here's a link to where he accidentally shows how stupid he is.

Not that I want to stick up for sam though I have yet to find proof of the b20 'unlock'. Yes, it has been discussed though not proven yet.

Me too, mainly because I feel the need to balance his notion that everyone needs band 20. Happily using my Mi max and Le max 2 (x829) on 3 without issue.

NFC is good to see though if you don't need NFC, I'd be inclined to consider the Letv le max 2 at £150ish, more info...

No, it's you that doesn't get the point. It's not a case of you just thinking there is no need in getting a non B20 phone considering you will outright lie about it being essential and say non B20 phones won't work in UK. You won't accept your opinion is not applicable to everyone else. You continue to ignore the fact people with non B20 phones use 4G perfectly fine.

"Because not all people need them". It's a simple answer, but one you cannot accept. You have told people on Lenovo ZUK Z2 threads, that the ZUK Z2 Pro is a better buy for £100 more because it has B20. This is a deals site. People are enticed at the idea of spending less for what they need/want. If they don't want to spend more on something they don't need, that's their choice but you cannot accept that and try to dictate it for them. B20 is not essential. Stop lying to other people about the implications of not having it, with your biased opinion.

I don't go promoting non B20 phones which you have accused me of. Anytime I have discussed B20 with a person who is unaware of it, I will give information that is not influenced by opinion and let them decide for themselves whether they believe it is necessary. Whereas you will spread misinformation about it being essential to make your opinion seem more valid and then if people don't agree, you'll believe it's because they aren't getting your point? oO

​You are entitled to your opinion and your phone shaped object but I will never agree to it. I think lack of B20 is very serious defect in phone supposed to be used in UK . Also no need to buy these phones as no shortage of phones available with B20 support.

Strange that you speak of opinion entitlement when all your comments imply that any opinions which oppose your own are incorrect. Whether or not you agree to it makes no difference whatsoever because it won't invalidate the opinion nor does it make your opposing opinion, factual. I don't agree with buying Apple or Samsung but that doesn't change the fact they're the 2 biggest selling smartphone brands. Your continual lies in favour of your opinion won't change the fact that phones which lack B20 are perfectly useable in UK even on 4G. People have different opinion. You seem to be under the delusion that it's a case of them being wrong and you being right, which it's not. The sooner you realise that, the better it will be for the rest of HUKD.

Its really getting annoying seeing your stupid comments on every phone thread. It the equivalent of moaning on every car deal that it doenst have a 6th gear when 1-5 is perfectly fine for most people.
I am sat here now with my MI5 (Brace yourself.....) with no band 20! and I have full 4G signal and easily pull over 30 mb/s.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but you are totally misinforming people and making it out like their phones wont work.
