No expandable sd slot is not a big issue, but no VoLTE and no band 5 LTE support means few takers of ZUK :-/

No need for band 7 (2600) in India. Only Band 3,5,8,28,40,41. Correct me if im wrong. Bsnl is 2500 right and not 2600?

what abt band 5???

May 10, 2016 10:22 pm 10:22 PM

Yes Band 41 is a pretty big band almost covering entire 2500 and 2600 MHz region though the actual block allocated to BSNL lies in 2600MHz region of band 41, the band itself is referred to as 2500 MHz band since it starts there and then extends to 2600 MHz region.
