One thing you need to know about cacombos.
You can select operator policy or hardware.
Operator can alterate the supported bands combinations.
For example: Xiaomi devices good know no limitation of combinations with Carrier Policy outside of China. DSS have limited but 5G enabled everywhere.
ZTE and Motorola allow 5G only home PLMN but otherwise no 4G combo and band limit per PLMN.
Other vendors like Samsung, Huawei, Sony, OnePlus have Carrier Policy limit bands/combos per network.
Samsung Exynos hard because have to test every PLMN so that’s why so many combinations missing on cacombos.
This site is the only one to tell you how many mimo layers are supported by a UE for each band combination.
Without it is a nightmare to search inside UE capability messages.

Indeed, a very good site :+1:

Only advice: don’t take it for granted.
Many MNO restrict a lot UE capabilities of mobiles for the smartphones they sell in their shops.
