Unlocked LG G4, which would work better?

    So, looking at different specs, and given what's available at present, while there is a part of me that wishes there was a phone with "all the bands" like the new Nexus phones and the iPhone 6S, I need something with battery life, and also the ability to quickly replace the battery. And since Zerolemon did make an extended battery for it with similar scale to the one on my Note 3, the LG G4 looks to be what I should be looking toward. However, I can say without hyperbole that I have yet to have a good experience with any carrier-locked phone from anyone, ever.

    That said, what is confusing is shopping for an unlocked version of the LG G4. Neither the Wikipedia Article ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LG_G4 ) nor LG's own website about it ( http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/g4 ) will tell me the remaining sticking point of contention for me with this phone - namely, the bands supported. And comparing against various sites, I get very different information.

    Comparatively, on Amazon the only unlocked G4 they will sell is the H815: http://www.amazon.com/LG-5-5-Inch-F...qid=1453168192&sr=1-2&keywords=lg+g4+unlocked
    There is a best buy within walking distance from me, that they sell this one for $400, same as a Moto X Pure : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-g4-w...lack/4668100.p?id=1219794345356&skuId=4668100

    And yet, when comparing between sites, they can't seem to agree on which actually supports at least the bands that T-Mobile uses, or if they'd even work.
    http://www.phonearena.com/phones/LG-G4_id9104/fullspecs lists both unlocked versions would work on T-Mobile, including Band 12.
    http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_g4-6901.php says the H815 doesn't, and doesn't even list the BB model.
    http://www.willmyphonework.net/ however, seems to list even more permutations and leaving even more confusion as to which would work and how well.

    So... can someone here help me straighten out this pile of poop? :thinking:
