No band 20, that's disappointing I was looking forward to this phone
Nice to see no reduction in battery size. Best feature of the 4X for me
Band 20 is this a UK 4G band that EE uses.

Then just wait till next Feb for the global version.

All UK networks use Band 20 in one way or another.

You will be ok on EE my daughter has a redmi 3 no band 20 support had it 18 months and has never had a problem with 4g reception i have just bought her another xiaomi non band 20 phone for xmas the redmi 4 pro and that is working no problem on EE. The only network that will not do 4g is O2 or their piggyback ones like Tesco Giff Gaff etc as they only use band 20 for 4g Whereas the other networks use other bands for 4g though some use band 20 in some areas but is not their main 4g band

Seen this stated before.I have an LG V10, which is supposed to have no band 20 and yet I get a 4g signal ?? (and I'm on EE).
How long does these preorders last before they are shipped?

I know one Czech shop that lists the new models on sale in Feb. The Czech market is included in the global Xiaomi Mi A1 sales, so the Redmi 5 will be a global version- they also need Band 20.

O2 use other bands for 4G as well, albeit mostly in cities. I was on Tesco Mobile with a Redmi 3 Pro and got 4G in cities. Where you won't get 4G is more rural areas, which require the 800MHZ (travels further, I believe). Even in those areas, 3G was always snappy.

I'm now on Vodafone with the same phone, and get 4G far more often, as they bought rights to more bands. Again, 3G (H, H+ etc.) is still pretty quick in those areas only serviced by band 20 for 4G

What frequencies do the different operators use?Each operator in the UK utilises different frequencies to deliver their mobile networks with the core networks being EE, O2, Vodafone and Three. Then there are also operators, called mobile virtual network operators (MVNO), who utilise the backend of the core networks to offer their own services.

The frequencies used by the major UK networks are listed below:

Network FrequenciesCheck Coverage
EE
800MHz (4G)

1800MHz (2G & 4G)

2100MHz (3G)

2600MHz (4G)


O2
800MHz (4G)

900MHz (2G & 3G)

1800MHz (2G)

2100MHz (3G)


Vodafone
800MHz (4G)

900MHz (2G & 3G)

1800MHz (2G)

2100MHz (3G)

2600MHz (4G)


Three
800MHz (4G)

1800MHz (4G)

2100MHz (3G)

Frequency converted into bands: 800MHz (Band 20), 900MHz (Band 8), 1800MHz (Band 3), 2100MHz (Band 1) and 2600MHz (Band 7)


800MHz frequency band

The 800MHz frequency band is one of two which was auctioned by Ofcom in February of 2013. Previously this band was used to provide analogue television signals, but since TV’s switched over to digital it was freed up to be used with 4G.

The lower the frequency of the band the further it can travel, so the 800MHz band is the most adept of the three at travelling over long distances, which means users can get a 4G signal even when they’re a long way from a mast. This becomes particularly useful in rural areas where masts are likely to be quite spread out.

However, it also has some advantages in cities, because low frequencies are also good at passing through walls and other physical objects. So the 800MHz band is good for indoor coverage and for heavily built up areas where a signal might otherwise struggle to travel.

On the other hand it has a comparatively low capacity, as it was only available in small 5 and 10MHz blocks, which means that it can’t always deal brilliantly with lots of people trying to connect at once, particularly if they’re carrying out demanding actions such as streaming HD video. So even in places with a good connection it may not always deliver consistent speeds, especially in urban areas where there’s likely to be a lot of data traffic.
