We've reviewed "the best cheap phone you can buy", even dubbing it a flagship killer -- but there's a bit of a snag for some Aussies getting the most out of the new handset.
Once used for our analog TV network, LTE Band 28 is the 700 MHz spectrum essential to both Optus and Telstra's next generation LTE networks. And the OnePlus 3 doesn't support it.
This comes on top of the news that the OnePlus 3 isn't shipping outside of the US -- yet.
According to Ausdroid, here's what bands are and aren't used by the Oneplus 3 LTE spectrum:
|5||Not used||Not used||Used|
|28||Not supported||Not supported||Not used|
|40||Not used||Used||Not used|
So if you're a Vodafone user, you'll likely have full access. All the 3G bands are there, so worst case scenario on other networks is it will affect your LTE coverage -- depending on what technology is being used in your area.
