    Xiaomi Mi 8 - anyone using

    Looking for a new phone in the near future.

    Currently using a OnePlus 5, but now looking at the Xiaomni phones as the best bang for your buck android phones.

    Anyone here using a Mi 8 or Mi 6 and can either advise if they have had any problems running them on UK networks?

    Thanks.

    I haven't used a Xiaomi smartphone before, it is pretty trending nowadays, but I would prefer to use Huawei.

    They dont make any money at present - trying to go public so building up their base. Seems to be you get the most recent hardware at the best price, but wondering if anyone had had bad experiences (I think someone said you cant use O2 as their frequencies are not supported).

    You can usually find that out by looking at what LTE bands are supported by the phone. You'd have to carefully check the exact model/version you're purchasing (supported bands often vary with models meant for different countries) but the one sold here claims to support the bands required for use on O2 (notably band 20). To be honest I don't think there are that many recent phones which would lack support for at least most of a UK operator's bands, it was more of a problem in the early days of LTE. Having said that, it's still worth checking, particularly if you're not buying from a well-known, UK-based retailer.
