I would like to buy the HUAWEI HONOR 7 from China, but I want to make sure it will work with Koodo when I get back to Canada (Quebec). I am really newbie with all these carrier specs, can someone please help me? Here are the phone specs that Huawei provided to me ( which I have no idea what it means) : 

TD-LTE: B38/B39/B40/B41; 
FDD-LTE: B1/B3;
TD-SCDMA: B34/B39;
WCDMA: 850/900/1900/2100MHz;
GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHz

Thank you in advance for your answer!

According to GSM gateway, the band this phone supports are:
2G bands GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2 (optional)
3G bands HSDPA 900 / 1900 / 2100 - Europe
4G bands LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 7(2600), 8(900), 20(800) - Europe
Since koodo does not have a 2g network and requires 850/1900 for 3g, this phone will not work with Koodo.
