Preface: Located in Canada, with Freedom Mobile (formerly known as Wind Mobile).
Freedom Mobile Supported Bands:
3G Bands: AWS-A-F (Band 4) (1700mhz)
LTE Bands: AWS-1 (Band 4) (1700mz), AWS-3 (Band 66) (1700mhz), Band 7 (2500mhz), Band 13 (700mhz), Band 41 (2500mhz)
LG V20 Supported LTE Bands (all attained from https://www.frequencycheck.com):
H918 = 4, 7, 13, 66
VS995 = 4, 7, 13
US996 = 4, 7, 13
H990N = 4, 7, 41
H990ds = 4, 7, 41
H990 = 4, 7, 41
H915 = 4, 7
H910 = 4, 7
LS997 = 4, 41
Which model of LG V20 should I get? It seems like I should get the H918 model, since it supports the most LTE bands that my carrier uses, and I have no plans of switching carriers anytime soon (6 year old grandfathered plan of $30 CAD for 5GB Data, Unlimted Canada Text, Unlimited Province Call. Best I’ll get for $30 CAD in Canada.), but are any of the other models worth getting because they have an additional feature, don’t have a flaw in the design, etc.?
Supposedly, Freedom Mobile sold and shipped the H915 model themselves, however, that model doesn’t appear to support LTE bands 66 and 13, while the H918 does?
I also plan to root the device and install a third party ROM (something as close to AOSP as possible), if that matters.
