    Hi,

    i want to buy a xiaomi note 4 or 4x.

    But it needs to be the global version and with band 20.
    An official one as installed at the factory with official OTA updates.

    Can anyone recommend a seller in the uk for this?

    I did place an order with gearbest in china.....but gave up on that.
    No response to a query about a phone.
    Placed order, then order caancelled next day with no explanation.
    Weird.

    S...,uk seller please.

    LAstly....anyone know how you can actually tell if a phone has the bands when you receive it?


    Thanks.

    Ebay or the xiaomi online store at aliexpress, for the bands i can only think to put a pay as you go O2 sim in and see if you get 4g

    Any idea if i need to top up a sim to find out if it can get 4g?
    If i do, it is £15 to check it has band 20.

    Hopefully it works on a new sim with no credit.

    Also, there are quite a few on allieexpress.
    Anyone any idea which is the correct one or has ordered one from there?
    I am after a 64 gb with band b20.
    There are a few on there that seem to be the same spec/color but with slightly different prices. Confusing.

    Hey,

    I picked one up from miandmore on eBay, around £180 with next day delivery.

    Comes with the global rom and ready to go.....

    4g on a bt PAYG sim works perfectly.

    Hth
