    Thanks! That's strange about the international version - the Amazon seller says in several questions that the phone works on Telus. It wouldn't surprise me if it didn't support some of the smaller carriers, though.

    So if what you're saying is also correct, does the international version support only some of the Telus (and other Canadian carriers') bands, and I will have poor call quality and dropped calls if I get it?

    The Best Buy phone has 4 GB RAM, so it's not much of an upgrade from KeyOne BE.
    The dual SIM TA 1196 international version with 6GB RAM works with the following LTE bands:
    LTE band 1,3,5,7,8,20,28,38,40,41

    Telus uses the following bands:
    2/4/7/12/13/17/29

    Survey says.... don't buy it!

    The Canadian version TA 1178 supports the following LTE bands:
    LTE band 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12,17,13,28,66

    Even though I'm exchanging the phone tomorrow I'm putting it through some testing. Definitely has whole day battery. Just finished watching/casting a concert video off youtube that lasted 1.5 hours. The HDR screen is awesome, easily adapting to Pie coming from Oreo. If my exchange phone is faultless I'm definitely keeping it.

    BTW signal levels both Wi-Fi and cellular are better than my Keyone. Upgrade?-notable-00005.jpeg
