Mmm regular price.

Smellll like spaaaam!!!!!

173€ for a 64GB grey Le Max 2 is regular price????

I bought my 32GB Rosegold in January for 190€ and it already had an enormous discount.

Smells like you don't know what you are talking about...

enter in the mobile page, it shows 190 usd while in normal desktop shows 225 usd...thats odd...

It always shows the same price here.

You're forgetting customs taxes and fees, i paid 190€ for everything delivered to my door, using priority line from gearbest.

In my country customs taxes and fees are huge, if a phone costs 190€ you will surely pay half of that just to clear it from customs.

BTW don't understand why there are 3 or 4 different models if they all share the same hardware, x820, x821, x822 and x829, just the storage and ram change.
If you flash a chinese rom you're x820, an indian rom you're x821, an American rom you're x829, so why the different models and different prices? Anyone knows?

I guess I'm lucky than. Because in the US I don't have any custom taxes or fees ( at least not yet lol)

Yes very lucky, here in Portugal it's almost armed robbery if it doesn't ship from the EU! For example, if you win any contest or lotery equal or above 5000€, the state keeps 20%!!!

Yes and no, the X829 is for US market and has as example no Band 20.

Yes i also saw that, but i already found many users saying that the band 20 in the x829 is unlocked., maybe they unlocked it afterwards.

Basically the x829 has no support for CDMA, TD-SCDMA or TDD-LTE, it has 1 extra 3G band and less bands everywhere else, that's why it's cheaper! Differences bellow in red:

x820
2G: GSM B2/3/5/8; CDMA (BC0 / BC1)
3G: WCDMA B1/2/5/8; TD-SCDMA: B34/39; CDMA (BC0 / BC1)
4G: FDD-LTE: B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/25/26, TDD-LTE:38/39/40/41

x829
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B12/B17

That's why the x820 is a much better prepared phone, you can travel wherever you want on the globe and you'll always be able to connect to any network.

PS: If the x829 is the american model why doesn't it support Sprint 4G network (B25 & 26)???
PS2: Also in the U.S., Sprint, Verizon and U.S. Cellular use CDMA, only AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM.

Hi, i would like to know how did you managed to avoid the customs fees since the phone to the best of my knowledge ships from HK warehouse and not EU warehouse. For me with all the customs shenanigans comes to 234 €. Since we both live in EU and we both have to pay taxes for the stuff that isn't from EU i would like to know how did you manage not to pay for it. I presume you bought the phone from that link now!! and are talking from experience? And you actually received it otherwise let me tell you you'll be in for a big surprise when the package arrives :)
TNX for the reply.
