You should get 4G on Vodafone in London but not having the 800Mhz band will mean 4G might be a problem in rural areas where it's used because it covers larger areas.

Will this phone work well on 3?

People "now know" what it means? You mean after your repeated lies about it which caused others having to comment and explain what it truly means? As in, it doesn't mean what you have stated multiple times (no UK bands, it;ll be a mini tablet in UK without B20, only works in China and India). But yeah I agree it's good that "at least most people here now know what UK 4g B20 band means", so they can see your comments for being mostly biased lies.

You are the liar not me. Telling people buy phones without UK bands . The most important thing phone is good reception. Missing the most important UK 4g band is not a good idea. No phone network or shop in UK sells 4g phones without B20. But idiots like you keep posting deals about Chinese phones without B20 with no warranty made only to work abroad so some gullible fall for it . Even if you ask Xiaomi , they never made this phone to sell in UK .

It is not my opinion, it is a fact. It is not 700 band , it is is the 800 band. I have not nominated myself to anything. Just type B20 or 800 uk LTE fdd band on google if you want to know the facts. You are the troll because you will never acknowledge the truth or read the writing on the wall .

Please provide proof to show when I have ever lied about B20. I have countered your biased lies with a factual explanation of what no B20 truly means for others, because unlike you I believe if people decide they do not need it, that's their choice to make. I do not try to enforce my views onto others which you have repeatedly tried to do with your dictatorial attitude. You say I tell people to buy phones without UK bands and that I keep posting deals of Chinese phones without B20. Again please show how you have come to this conclusion. I haven't done this even once. I pointed that out the last time you accused me the same thing. But again you disregard anything that goes against what you think is true. Just like how you disregard factual comments from users of non B20 phones who have stated that they use their non B20 phone, perfectly fine on 4G in UK. Again, I will say this. Your opinions and views are not applicable towards everyone else. No matter how much you make the statements that I mentioned in the bracketed part of my previous comment, it will not make them factual. They are lies. People are able to use non B20 phones in UK: fact. Phones without B20 have no UK bands and won't work: that's not even opinion, it's an outright lie. Learn the difference and stop making rude baseless accusations towards anyone who doesn't agree with your views.

​this one from banggood is global rom and bootloader is not unlocked, android pay works fine.... I've got one on an earlier deal.

Xiaomi alwyas have locked bootloader now they used to be unlocked but now you have to apply for it to be (really annoying method as well)

The problems with banking tends to be if your phone is rooted
