Looks like it may actually work on all US carriers (doesn't mean they'll activate it.)  Of course, these are rumors but if it holds true, it'll have all of the LTE bands for each carrier and CDMA compatibility.

It's sadly missing CDMA B10 though! Unless they can add that in no go for Sprint. But looks good for everyone else.

It may be missing band class 10.  Or the specs may be incomplete -- with band class 0 and band class 10 wrapped together, since both are considered "800 MHz."  Plus, if the specs are accurate, the handset does support band 26.  So, it would seem curious that it supports band 26 and CDMA2000 but not band class 10.

 

No matter.  Network compatibility aside, I expect the chances of this niche Chinese handset on Sprint are slim to none.

I am referring to BYOD.

Why wouldn't they permit this phone on the network with BYOD? It has one of the widest ranges of network compatibility that I've seen, outside of the iPhone, and I would love to have a phone I could use on Sprint, T-Mobile, and on the various mobile networks in China and Europe.

It is exceedingly niche.  Xiaomi has no brand recognition in the US.  Even if this handset turned out to be Sprint network compatible with band class 10 support, no more than a few thousand would be activated on Sprint.  That would not be worth the preparation and training required for BYOD.

 

I would love to see numbers on even the 2015 Moto X and Nexus 5X activated BYOD on Sprint.  Many of us here likely overestimate the importance and prevalence of non iPhone BYOD.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
