    Apologies if this question isn't appropriate for this forum. I'm looking to pick up an iPhone 6 whilst I'm in Hong Kong this week but I'm a little confused about whether it would work back in London.

    Having a look at this page https://www.apple.com/iphone/LTE/ seems to say the same model will work/be sold on HK networks and UK networks.

    Would anybody be able to confirm this? Is there anything else I should check before bringing one over?

    It's the same phone whether you buy it here or in HK. Identical.

    I've bought many Apple products (including phones) abroad and brought them over to the uk.

    The extra advantage of buying in HK is that you get a UK charger.

    The only issue you could have is that your customs import allowance is only £390 so technically you should declare it and pay import duty and VAT....

    Warranty may be an issue if something goes wrong

    Yep, international warranty doesn't apply to iPhones unfortunately.
