Ordering Chinese phones off aliexpress?

Hey guys,

Im getting tired of the $1200+ flagship phones, and have been looking into buying a chinese brand phone. Is there any brands I should steer clear of, or might not work on most canadian bands?

Oppo Reno Ace
Realme x2 pro
Xiaomi Mi 9T pro
etc

I've had experience with Xiaomi's(bought a few over the years), just make sure its the global version. Bang for buck.

Got a Xiaomi note 5 that I used when I go back to China. Is been pretty solid so far. Other than the So So camera and the phone is just too big for my pocket I really have no complains.

Used a 1+1 before give it to my dad and he still uses it. Still pretty good. I used a 1+3 before and I find the battery life not great.

Check and see what 4G/LTE bands the phone will work on and compare that with your carrier to see which bands they offer.

I've bought a few phones but they are for wifi only but my next phone will be from Aliexpress. I don't want to pay $1000+ for another cell phone.

OnePlus is having a sale for OnePlus 7 Pro for $700ish which is still a good price if you want the warranty.

Order the razor phone 2 from Amazon for $399. Drop my S8 and the screen crack. Is way too expensive to replace the screen (stupid curve screen).

you dont have to drop 1k to get a nice phone, but i've learned my lesson with cheap budget phones... camera that can't focus, slight lag even from day one, and bad reception made me go out and buy a good quality phone.

Take back what I said, tested the razor phone 2 the camear is just really really really bad. Is wore then 1+3. It lags and sometimes after you zoom in the picture becomes super dark and when you try to zoom back out sometimes it won't let you zoom all the way out, other times it will just lag and the lighting is way off. Going to refund it. Got on the waiting list for the Pixel 3a $399.
