Xiaomi Red Rice
been looking at this phone previously only for china market but i see here:
Xiaomi hongmi (Red Rice) WCDMA version Android 4.2 MTK6589T Quad Core 1.5GHz 1G 4G 1280 × 720 4.7 Inch IPS Screen Multi-Language Smartphone Red - Wholesale Electronics on AntElife.com
it's listed as 900/2100mhz for 3G:
Network type: GSM+WCDMA
Frequency: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz WCDMA 900/2100MHz
WIFI: 802.11b/g wireless internet
So, should this work in UK for 3G or am I being stupid? :)
What network are you going to use it on? They have different frequencies.
I thought all UK 3G networks work at 2,100MHz? :confused:
- 3: 3G 2,100MHz
- EE: GSM 1,800MHz, 3G 2,100MHz
- O2: GSM 900/1,800MHz, 3G 2,100MHz
- Vodafone: GSM 900/1,800MHz, 3G 2,100MHz

I'm waiting on the latest MediaTek chipset to hit phones later this summer: Why MediaTek's MT6595 processor will result in a sub £200 iPhone rival - PC Advisor
Could be a game changer for high spec/low cost handsets.
well took the plunge and bought one, will see how it fairs.
i see there's already some octocores availalbe - not sure if wcdma though.
Well got it through yesterday and it's all good. 3G is H+ and wifi working, got play store installed and everything's good. Not bad for £119 all in.
Scores 16758 on antutu x which is about the same overall score as a nexus 4 or just under an S3.
How's the GPS? And can you post Pics?
*Big Chinese phone fan me and have brought two so far, however with the new Mediatak 4G SOC that is due in a few months we should be getting very nice affordable smartphones in the UK too. That and better quality control. I've not had a duff one yet, but quite a few have.
not problem, will see what i can do in an mo :)
Upon using for a bit and why I've bought a case for it is that the camera protrudes and would get stratched eventually. And the back is a bit plasticy, and cheap a bit like a dell inspirion laptop! But the price reflects this and is no different to many other phones. Still cant decide if it has corning gorilla glass, seems to be plastic if i tap it but have no comparision really to be sure.
