Must be known there's no band 20 with this phone.

Each of these network bands operate at different frequencies, and each frequency has different characteristics. The long, flat wavelengths of Band 20's 800MHz means that it is good for travelling long distances and penetrating walls, whereas the 2600MHz of Band 7 is capable of transmitting data quicker, but is more prone to interference.As you can see by the information below, all UK carriers utilise Band 20, but all offer other bands too. So the key takeaway here is that a phone without Band 20 will still be able to get 4G coverage on any network in the UK, but this may vary due to where you are in the country.UK 4G Bands/FrequenciesBand 7 (Frequency 2600MHz)Band 3 (Frequency 1800MHz)Band 20 (Frequency 800MHz)VodafoneBands 3, 7, 20EEBands 3, 7, 20O2Bands 3, 20ThreeBands 3, 20for most people you won't notice the difference and on a cheap basic phone its not that important.


I'm not trying to scupper your deal, and I'm not gonna go through the ind and outs of networks that use band 20, but I feel its important for people to know that information

this would mean an uplift of £50 in price, so worth it on an £85 phone

It was £89 up until this morning, I'm guessing most would rather pay for version. But to each their own.

No, on a site we can't mention, it would be £20 and it would also get you the 4/64gb version.
Is this phone waterproof? Do you mean water-resistant, like IP68 rated?

From Europe, C1 Global Store may deliver it from Europe mate. If they do, they generally take around a week.

Donald's capitulated and made a deal with China as it was hammering the US. I'd like to think it'll all fizzle out. Especially with all the sh*t that the impeachment trial will unearth.

Wouldn't bother with anything containing MIUI interface anymore.
Its now far too bloated and likes to kill all your apps when you have plenty of RAM left.

MIUI was fine about 2 years ago, not anymore.
