According to gsmarena it supports 4g/LTE. I wonder why it wouldn't work.
Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.

Not on the correct LTE frequencies I would imagine.

That would make sense. It would also explain why certain 4g speeds are unsustainable in town versus city areas.

I have a Motorola Z Play, a superb phone, I got it from eBay about a year ago for under £200. Great performance, looks good, amazing battery, can't fault it. I used to change my phone every 6 months because I'd usually find fault with them, but I am keeping this one as long as I can

Many thanks!

Yes. I went with the new Nokia 6. Had it 4 days now and really love it!
