I'm shopping phones and looking at Koodo as a provider; would the Note 4X be compatible? Here are the supported networks:

2G: GSM B2/3/5/8 CDMA 2000/1X BC0
3G: WCDMA B1/B2/B5/B8 TD-SCDMA B34/B39
4G: FDD-LTE B1/B3/B5/B7/B8 TD-LTE B38/B39/B40/B41 ( 2555-2655MHz )

It will work on 3G and LTE-A but it wont work on LTE as that requires Band 4.

I'm sorry to hear that. You can try to return it or if you cannot then you can sell it at least and hopefully make your money back. Also IMO if you really want a BB I'd grab a BB10 phone of any kind instead as they're leaps and bounds ahead in capability compared to BBOS phones.

okay, so according to the specs here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Original-Xiaomi-Redmi-Note-4-Special-Edition-Mobile-Phone-3GB-RAM-32...

this should work, as it lists "2100" under 4G/LTE?

Aws band 4 specifically requires 1700 AND 2100 to operate so sadly no. Also in Canada 850/1900 is available not 900/2100 so even with repurposed 3g bands it won't work out unfortunately.

so this phone will have the same issues as stated above, re only working on LTE A?

Pretty much. I'd spend the extra 70-80 on this:

I think it's a gamble any way you slice it.

While I have been disappointed in my Motorola Moto G3 not getting timely, if any updates, due to Lenovo taking over, for the most part it's a decent phone, except for lack of internal space.

I've ordered from 'G...Best' before, but only for inexpensive accessories.  Everything arrived, perhaps ~ 6+ weeks later.  

The warranty issue, if it happens, is where one option may appeal more than another option.    
Do I take a risk and spend $2-250 on a chinese phone that may work for me, yet if it doesn't - am I up the proverbial s--t creek without a paddle?  
Or, would Lenovo treat me like garbage if I had an issue with their Motorola phone, I don't know...  

Good luck - let us know what you decide.

Hi everyone, I bought the Redmi Note 4X Global Edition and so far it seems to be working great on koodo. I've been getting consistent 4G speed, although I live downtown and have yet to see what data reception will be like outside of Toronto.


Thanks everyone for your help.

Congrats on the purchase.
How did you get the phone so fast, was this a Kijiji purchase?

I ended up buying a certified pre-owned Moto G5 Plus (4gb / 64 gb).
Hopefully it lasts me a good while

i was going to go with the G5 Plus, but I decided to go with the Note4X instead. I got a deal on kijiji (190) vs 350+tax for the moto, but i also liked the bigger screen.

i will miss the near stock android of moto though. the xiaomi android skin sucks. i'm using a nova launcher for the first time because of that.

Well that's a heck of a deal.

I didn't even think of looking on Kijiji. Was that from local individual seller, or a company?


Yes, we may have been looking at the same G5 Plus Best buy dot ca, price for $350(tax included.) certified pre-owned.

It was an individual who was selling because he bought a maze alpha.

I found a G5plus on the US bestbuy for about 260 Canadian. My sister lives in New Hampshire so I almost went that route.
