    Wow! There’s so much markup on the 6GB + 64GB variant. More or less 3k PHP.
    Better to buy on other sellers. Just in FB alone there are tons of them selling the Mi 8 on a more affordable price.

      If you don’t need xiaomi’s parts and service warranty, then buy from unauthorized sellers

      @Emery

      That’s not true. There are some that indeed offer those.

    correction *band 28 is used by Globe which the Mi8 in china/hk doesn’t support.

    the mi mix 2s though supports a wider range of LTE bands

  5. Avatar for JustAsking JustAsking says:

    Hopefully the yugatech team can confirm band 28

    the mi mix 2S has band 28

  6. Avatar for JustAsking JustAsking says:

    did they give details of the LTE bands the philippines version will carry? noticed that their China/HK models do not support LTE Band 20 (which Globe uses for 700hz)
