This has been a runaround the last few days and I don't have many answers to show, and I really need help with a couple questions.
I'm interested in the Redmi Note 4/4x Global version.
The frequency check website I went to said the Redmi Note 4 doesn't support Bell frequencies but the Note 4x would, then the other said both will work for 3G and both may or may not work on some bands for 4G. But I talked to geekbuying and they said they can only send the Global version to 28 EU countries. I've looked on Bell and I can't find out anything until I have the phone, which I can't get unless it's compatible.
I also got told from geekbuying on chat that the 4x Global and 4x Chinese version have different bodies so cases won't be interchangable, then I chatted with mi.com and they had said they are physically the same and cases will work...but THEN on Reddit, I get told that the Indian and Global version are physically the same, but the Chinese version is different. Oh my gosh. This is confusing for someone who has no idea what they're doing.
So my questions are:
1. Will the Redmi Note 4 or 4x (ANY version, but please specify
) work with Bell Canada network? I'm in southern British Columbia if that makes a difference.
2. What is the actual difference between Chinese, Indian, and Global versions, other than the specs? What would you recommend for Bell Canada? (I'm not good with knowing frequencies or bands)
Any help and info, even answers to questions I haven't asked, are all welcome. I just really want to make sure these phones will work before I spend the money to get them here. Thanks a lot!
