Don't bother with this phone. Redmi Note 7 is such a substantial upgrade over this phone and it's just a bit more.

Do they have a global version for that phone?

Decent phone, not a good price though. Wait for the note 8 or get a note 7, better yet get a Mi A3 so you dont have to deal with MIUI

Mi A3's screen resolution kills the deal though ....

I agree ... Global version Note 5 is actually very capable phone in today's standard. Very good spec. If it's 25-30% cheaper, it would be a super deal IMO. One thing though .... if you need NFC, look elsewhere ....

Maybe some existing Freedom Mobile users can help ... As far as i know, Note 5 does not work with Freedom 3G network .. which means no voice calls ..... However, not sure about the VoLTE deployment from Freedom Mobile ...

I briefly used a mi 9T global version on Freedom, 4G LTE worked in most places. Xiaomi phones lack band 66 which the freedom network heavily relies on. When using the mi 9T I would get LTE fine outside but in a area like a hospital or buildings with thick/brick exteriors, I would lose service while my wife who has an iPhone XR would still get a good connection. So if you are with Freedom it’s best to stay away from xiaomi phones.
