Xiaomi - Help with frequency bands and purchase

Gokul raj

Jan 18, 2017
I live in the UK and use the Carrier GiffGaff, a subsiduary of O2. The issue is that I plan on purchacing a new phone and would like to use 4G/LTE. The frequency band O2 uses is 800 MHz though which two of the phones in consideration do not support.



Phones in consideration:

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime

Elephone P9000

The question is: Even though the phones don't support the Band 20 , can it connect to other carriers cell towers using a different band and therefore enable me to use 4G?

Or would I only be able to use 3G?

If you have other recommenations or advice please do post your opinion.

Thank you
