Thumbs up [Q] Buying Nexus 5 from Hong Kong for UK use


I am in China at the moment and was looking to get a Nexus 5 from Hong Kong. My questions are:

1. Will I be able to use the HK version or the N5 in China?
2. Will I be able to use the HK N5 in the UK?
3. Are any N5 phones region locked such that they have to be activated in the country of purchase before being used in another country?

If there is no problem, then I will buy from HK as the price is 3588 HK Dollars for the 32GB version which equates to around 280 (saving 60)... I am thinking of getting 2 so the savings will add up.... but only if it works in China and the UK as I travel between these countries a lot...

Thanks in advance....

You should be fine...

Unless there is a variant of the Nexus that we don't know about in China.
