$380 usd
Retailer:
aliexpress.com
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002283178542.html
Shipping: US $3.59
(add $4 coupon)
dont forget rakuten cash back and pay in USD instead of CAD.

Final shipped price is $483.35 CAD for me (credit card charged), not including the cashback, which should be about another $15

Cheapest phone with snapdragon 888. Only available in black and silver at this price. The yellow/black version is US$451.80, but with 12GB ram and 256GB storage.


NOTE: appears to be a Chinese ROM according to the reviews.

Does it have all the 4G bands?
I know the Chinese version doesn't but wonder if they have an international edition that does.

These are unlocked phones and they should support 'most' bands. I would still check the specs and confirm if freedom and Fido bands are supported.
The reason I say this is because I bought a OnePlus 7t from Ali express back in 2019 and it supports all the bands of Telus, Rogers and Freedom.

I just got this phone today. I am using it with Fido's 4GB data only plan. The cellular status says 4G network and it can hotspot just fine.

Does this Chinese ROM work with Android Auto? I have a Chinese ROM OPPO phone with Google service installed, everything works flawlessly, except I can't get it work with the Android Auto mirroring on my car.

I can't seem to get it to connect to the car's Wifi for the wireless mirroring. Just gets an error. Not sure what the issue would be. Bluetooh connects. It's just the wifi connection. Perhaps it's not getting the right wifi passcode through. My Oneplus 8T (global rom) works great on android auto. I'll try wireless on the realme GT again and see if i can manually input the wifi code, i saw it flash on screen somewhere but it was very quick and can't find it now.

Also gonna try a usb cable and change the USB protocol to PTP and see if that works. If not there is always the global ROM that you can flash onto it.
