ABOUT HUAWEI HONOR NOTE 8 : https://www.kimovil.com/en/where-to-buy-huawei-honor-note-8-128gb

On the website " Will My Phone Work ? " ... ( See the picture ) ... it shows that the only network service I will get for this mobile phone with Koodo is : 3G Network 850MHz, 1900MHz ... is that true ? : http://willmyphonework.net/

Anyone who have this Huawei Honor Note 8, please can you tell me what this mobile phone is capable of and if it's ok with Koodo to get 4G LTE network ?

Thanks !

Yes basically that's right.

You MAY get LTE in small pockets where the 2600 band is being used but it's a crap shoot.

That being said, depending on how you use your phone, LTE may not be important to you. LTE is just a measure of data speed. For some 3g is fine.

Streaming video and sometimes audio may take a bit longer or you may experience buffering more often without LTE. Also thinks like video calling quality won't be as clear or sometimes even impossible. So if you Skype or use things like Facebook messenger calling, that may be an issue. Or not.

Hope this helps

I'm currently using a Xiaomi Mi 5, which has the same handicap in regards to the LTE bands (namely, only 2600). I have not seen any noticeable difference in using this phone vs a phone that has the AWS LTE band (but my area does have 2600 coverage). In any case, I'm happy with my phone even outside of LTE coverage.

Take a look at the coverage maps. 2600 is LTE Advanced, the pink region, and covers most big cities. You can decide from there wether that civerage is good enough for you or not. http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-long-distance-and-travelling/coverage-maps

Will this cellphone * [b]Xiaomi Mi Note 2 * ... http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_mi_note_2-8014.php ... catch the 4G LTE network ? ( on the picture it shows 4G LTE - Band4-AWS )

I am not sure if this the one ? : Original Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Prime 6GB RAM 128GB ROM Mobile Phone Dual 3D Glass Snapdragon 821 5.7" 22.56MP Camera Flexible Display

Thank you for helping me here ! 🙂

Yes. Band 4 is all that is needed for LTE so it will work.
