Will this phone be 100% compatible with the Rogers/ Fido network?

I thought there wouldn't be any issues with it with LTE connection in some major city like Toronto or Montreal.

I know in downtown Toronto, 2600MHz is broadcasted. So it will work. But I'm saying that it's not 100% compatible with Rogers' LTE network. You won't get LTE in places where 2600MHz is not broadcasted.

If you are in Toronto, you always get LTE on Rogers. I frequent Burlington, Pickering, Caledon, and other GTA locations and I always have LTE.

It's not a knock off. The Note name has just become synonymous with 5.5+" phones in China. Xiaomi is one of the (if not actually the) biggest phone makers in China right now. The Xiaomi has a bit of a nicer case than the Samsung Note 3, marginally faster processor, fingerprint sensor, slightly smaller screen (5.5 vs 5.7), no NFC and probably a worse camera, and also much worse third party ROM support, and also worse network support. And with the USD being what it is right now, it's more expensive than the Samsung. BUT, you're also getting a brand new phone, as opposed to used or refurb from eBay (and also - avoid buying used from Canada on eBay, unless buying from a seller with a very feedback. Thanks, blacklist!).
I have gotten occasional drops down to 3G on 2600-only phones on Rogers here in Oakville... But for the most part, Rogers' 2600 coverage is fairly solid around the GTA.

There are plenty of ACTUAL knock offs (same styling, even fake Samsung branding) on Chinese sites. "Note" has become a generic term in China for phablets, the same way that "Kleenex" has become a generic term for facial tissues in North America, or "Hoover" has become a generic term for vacuums in the UK.bluebellrose wrote: ↑Feb 10th, 2016 5:23 amIf it isn't a knock off then they ought to be a little more original with the names.
I call it a knock off. Dont want people to call them a knock off? Stop being a copycat and be original like samsung and sony's xperia Z ultras. Surprised samsung hasn't sued them yet for copyright infringement.

Is Bell's band 7 coverage actually that good these days? It wasn't the last time I checked, but I'll admit that I haven't checked for quite some time now.
