Just saw quite a few decent reviews about this phone. Has anyone tried this brand out? What are your thoughts on it:

It seems like a pretty decent budget smart phone.

So i was looking at getting this phone, but was wondering how well it would work on NZ networks. For reference here is a list of bands it supports according to gsmareana: 

 

 

 

 

2G bands

 

GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2

 

 

 

3G bands

 

HSDPA 850 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100

 

 

 

4G bands

 

LTE band 2(1900), 4(1700/2100), 7(2600), 12(700), 17(700)

Looks great on the Amazon reviews although it doesn't have LTE Band 28 for 700MHz in NZ

Would Band28 700MHZ missing be a biggie?

Looks like no band 3 (1800) ether so most likely  no LTE..
