I bought POCO F3 from aliexpress and it support the 5g band for my country as per the seller . But unfortunately i cannot connect to 5g.

It is currently on global rom. So i hope all the advertised bands are enabled. Did any one else face this same issue?

Is there any solution for this?

Will i be able to connect 5G if i install eu firmware. I'm still watitng for my bootloader waiting period to expire though...

Device model is M2012K11AG as attached. I'm trying to figure how to generate the log file.

Also thanks a lot for replying...

    Your provider SIM has to be 5G validated, hence you pay for that.

    Another strange thing is checked my speed via speed test app and the resulting speeds are definitely not 4G . I got as much as 640Mbps downloads...
    As I see from ur screenshot, u use Wi-Fi not mobile data (looks like u don't even have a SIM in ur phone, so u can't have mobile data connection). So, those speeds are from ur wireless connection not mobile data connection (4G/5G).

    Lol... I understand you mate. But the screenshot were taken later. As i was just experimenting with different network provider. If you look closely at the results, it even mentions LTE in the left where my speeds are mentioned.

    Btw i hope I'm right in assuming that those cannot be LTE speeds and surely 5g...

    Nope, ur not right. LTE on ur screenshot is from the name of the server u choose. Look at ur status bar of ur phone....only Wi-Fi connection is enabled (btw, if u don't have a SIM inserted in ur phone, u can't have mobile data -4G/5G available on ur phone).
    PS- I thinks ur confused about 4G/5G (which is mobile connection) and 2,4GHz/5GHz bands (which is Wi-Fi - ur router connection).

    Like i said bro, the screenshot was taken later when i removed the sim. I did the test when i was connected on LTE.

    The screenshot shows result for multiple test which were conducted earlier in time.


    Anyways, i inserted the sim again and did the test once more so here it goes...

    Also, i would like to know if i am right in assuming this is not LTE speed..

    Have a great day... Cheers

    I got it now....it's 4G speed (as status bar shows) and, most probably, with 3 inter-band carrier aggregation.

    great way to test if your device support 5G band is forcing your router to advertise one if your can see the SSID being advertise and you can connect to it that means it support 5G
