The 1800 and 2600 bands seems to make sense for China, according to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks
Then that would mean the GSM Arena specs are incorrect (not surprising, this is often the case). Unless you can find the band support specs for that exact variant, you really have no way of knowing it will get LTE (or HSPA for that matter) until your dad puts his SIM in.
I used the radio timmaaa recommended. You can see it earlier in the thread. As for the LTE, I just saw that it had it, and was noticeably faster. I did no benchmarks.*
On another note, does the One XL have a good amount of oleophobic coating, like the other contemporary flagships? I found that it accumulated fingerprints very easily, compared to the Z10, Galaxy, etc. It could be because the phone is used. Shouldn't be a problem for my dad; I got him an Otterbox case.*
Btw, thanks timmaaa for all the help. It was very easy, following your directions. I expected at least a couple roadblocks, but everything went smoothly. Probably helped that it also had s-off and CID too
