Getting new non uk phone, will 4g, calls and text work with these Bands :D

Hi there I hope someone can help, I am getting a new phone which the uk version is not out to buy yet but will be later this year but I am thinking of buying the non uk versions and I was just wondering if the mobiles following frequencies/bands listed below would it work ok

 

I realise it does not have band 20 for 4G but it has the other ones, long as I can get some 4g connection I am ok, and obviously calls and texts work ok too

 

the phones bands are as follows...

 

 

Wireless connectiveity:GSM, 3G, 4G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth
Frequency:
2G GSM B2/B3/B5/B8, CDMA 1X BC0, 
3G WCDMA B1/B2/B5/B8, TD-SCDMA B34/B39
4G FDD-LTE B1/B3/B5/B7/B8, TDD-LTE B34/B38/B39/B40/B41

@marklola82   EE use

 

  • 800MHz(band 26) for 4G
  • 1800MHz(band 3) for 2G and 4G
  • 2100MHz(band 1) for 3G only
  • 2600MHz(band 7) for 4G

So you’ll be ok.  As EEs  main band is 1800MHz (Band 3 ) for 4G it’s band 26 and 7 you’ll not get.

By the way I do not use 4g often, maybe for my break at work as their wifi is bad etc, I have 20gb a month but only use about 2-4gb

Oh that's good then, if I wait for the phone to come out in the Uk it will be about £100 more and I can not quite afford anymore

 

would I not get band 7 though with the listing saying B7

I have paid for it already but thought I had best check before they sent it out.
