    Looking on GSM Arena the Note 7 says it does do Band 28....but on Ebay the specs don't mention B28....how can I clarify?

    Probably depends on the particular version.

    Gearbest for me - have bought a phone from there previously, and 2 other Xiaomi products - all genuine, good prices too

    Their Note 7 also mentions Band 28, but didn't have that when I was looking - might be worth the risk as Gearbest is selling for under US$150 for the 3gb version, under US$200 for the 4bg version, and it's a nice phone regardless. You could test it out and resell it if it's not got B28, and you'd probably make a few bucks on it too. I'm still happy with my Mi 8 Lite though, and the 6gb RAM is nice...

    Cheers guys...GSMArena & Xiaomi global site both say B28....being partially deaf I want it for the 90db ring and it ticks my other boxes too.

    I think I am going to take the punt on it and hope....I do need B28 as I end up in some shitty spots for work

    Let us know once you get it if it has it, might be a few on here interested (I'm still happy with my choice, but the extra battery size would have tipped me over to a 4gb Note 7)

    Wife and I are currently looking for a new phone.
    Would like the following:
    - No obvious lag
    - 2GB RAM minimum (3GB+ preferred)
    - Battery that lasts at least a day (if it can fast charge then that will help)
    - Half decent camera
    - Support Boost (aka Telstra)

    We currently have Nokia 3's so obviously don't need anything super awesome. Just after something with a slightly better camera that won't lag as much as the Nokia currently does.
    I was looking at the Samsung Galaxy A20 for $230 but thought I'd check here before committing.
