XIAOMI MI5S phone sim free

Hi,

I'm looking to replace my aging iPhone 5 and may go with a Chinese import. Can anyone confirm that the XIAOMI MI5S smartphone will work on a Virgin Media sim-only deal - 3g and 4g.

Thanks

Hal

Looks like it. There will be no 800MHZ LTE on Virgin for a while yet.

Re: XIAOMI MI5S phone sim free

Further details on network connectivity:
2G bands: GSM 1800 which I believe is OK
CDMA 800
3G bands: HSDPA 2100 which I believe is OK
CDMA2000 1xEV-DO
4G bands: LTE band 3(1800), 7(2600) - both OK, but missing 800?
Speed: HSPA, LTE
GPRS: Yes
EDGE: Yes

Question is - will this phone work on Virgin Media Network and if so, using what bands?

Thanks

Hal

Just to confirm, I have a Xiaomi Mi 5 (international version) and virgin media mobile - 4G does work. Download speeds of around 20mb when tested - upload was poor around 1mb

 

hope this helps others
