    No band 20 means NO in 2018
    RGB47 m ago

    They downgrade from 4gb ram in redmi 4 to 3gb ram in redmi 5


    Wow, a lot of people are getting confused.

    This is NOT that Redmi NOTE 5, it is the follow up to the smaller Redmi 4. BTW there will be a 4GB version of the Redmi 5 too.

    Everyone complaining - you need to wait for the Redmi NOTE 5.


    NOTE!

    They've not put band 20 in it?! Are they mental? Assume a 'global edition' will come
    Edited by: "jeffery" 8th Dec 2017
    Not much of an upgrade over the redmi note 4 is it tbh.
    Can someone add band 20 to this phone manually..
    Like in a back room somewhere... With a magnifying mirror and soldering iron..?

    Agreed. Redmi note 4a on here for £65 recently. You are only getting half an inch extra and a few increased specs for nearly double the price. Depends on your priorities.
    Ive been using a MI 5s plus on 3 for about a year now here in the UK. That doesn't have band 20 either, but its been great. Signal has been great, had no issues.

    What's Band 20 ?
    Croft3601 h, 12 m ago

    What's Band 20 ?


    It's one of the main 4g bands used in the UK. I think all of the UK providers use it. It's not the sole one (I think there is 4), but worth checking your provider supports some of the other bands. It will affect where you get 4g signal.
    Croft3601 h, 47 m ago

    What's Band 20 ?


    It's a 4g band. 02, EE, Vodaphone & Three all use it. They have alternative bands out there aswell for 4g but not supporting band 20 will mean dead spots and bad signal all over the place.

    Bit of a stretch used xiaomi for number of years on re and see no difference in coverage versus Mrs iPhone. Quite honestly people just seem to like a decent moan about it, if that bothered pay twice the money and take a Samsung
    I think I'll wait untill that SD625 is upgraded. Probably the next iteration. Liking the screen size though.
    I have just bought a redmi note 4 and it's amazing with days of battery life this one doesn't seem like it upgrades much of anything other than the bezzels sizing. Still the pricing for both is unreal! Wouldn't worry about Snapdragon 625 btw . I had a HTC one m8 prior to this and this is much faster flies through everything I've asked it to do
    no nfc? no go for me personally

    This is not the redmi note 5, the note 5 will have some more upgrades like snapdragon 660

    geekbuying.com/ite…tml
    this is an avoid phone, more expensive than a higher spec note 4, why pay more for less? only thing that's a possible improvement is screen size. anyone have too much pocket space?

    cold for price, cold for spec, cold for no band 20, cold for needing more pocket space in an age of ever decreasing pocket sizes.

    It's not a Note phone....
    Its £146 lol, wtf do people expect

    Still rocking a Kate that has been through the wars but hanging in there like a trooper (have replaced the screen, usb charger port, speaker)

    Otherwise I would be all over this, cant believe people still grumble for the price of these

    No NFC 'its a no go for me' - we were rocking Nokia mars bars not long ago lol

    No band 20 never affected me on EE
    Great phone, what else are you going to get with a display like that for at this price? Will be even better when you can flash stock android on it!
    No band 20 and lack of 2.4ghz wireless as per every other Redmi means an absolute nope.

    Care to explain? They've got 2.4GHz. And even if they didnt, who cares - 2.4 is saturated anyway

    It's 6 inch I'd assume it's close.

    Hi,

    MIUI also android,

    Android is a mobile operating system (OS) currently developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

    MIUI Development people make some changes in application layer and application framework layer only for better result in all conditions.

    they do some kocktail and give the name was MIUI.. only,

    not only MIUI..this type of custom OS (operation system) lot of available in the market

    MIUI 9 is the new version of Xiaomi’s custom android skin, MIUI.

    Like google releases a New Android version every year, xiaomi releases new MIUI with more features and improvents.

    Basically MIUI is still Android, but with Xiaomi's own design/theme slapped on top of it

    My Redmi Note 3 has 2.4 GHz wireless, so.... ???
    I wish they'd stop all these Chinese deals on a UK deal site as according to Ms May, Brexit means Brexit.
    So once that is sorted around 2077 I hope to see these deals banned although by then the bulk of the UK will probably be just a holiday home for Chinese government officials and we'll all be working 80 hours per week in Foxconn factories in Essex making iPhones for the Chinese owned Apple Corp.
