Best unlocked phone at BestBuy on Bell?


I've got a 600$ e-gift card from GeekSquad and need to pick up a new phone at Best Buy. I've got an old Bell plan that I'd like to hold onto so I'll have to buy the phone outright and they don't seem too keen on selling me a phone outright unless it's one of the unlocked ones from bestbuy.ca

Which would you recommend? I like the iPhone SE but am not sure if it'll work with Bell on the east coast? Here are the listed specs on the website:

Supported 3G Modes/Bands UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
Supported 4G Modes/Bands LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 29)

The Sony Z5 Compact is also tempting but, like the iPhone, I'm unsure if it'll work with Bell.

Thanks in advance!
