I compared this phone to a 13 Pro Max and this sub par phone only has about ~1/3 the radios for 5G LTE etc. Most of the time if you travel, you will have very spotty service if that.

Here is Orbic:
NR 2 / 5 / 25 / 41 / 66 / 71
LTE 2 / 4 / 5 / 12 / 13 / 25 / 26 / 41 / 66 / 71
WCDMA 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 8
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

Here is an iPhone:
NR 1 / 2 / 3 / 5 / 7 / 8 / 12 / 20 / 25 / 28 / 29 / 30 / 38 / 40 / 41 / 48 / 66 / 71 / 77 / 78 / 258 / 260 / 261
LTE 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 7 / 8 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 25 / 26 / 28 / 29 / 30 / 32 / 34 / 38 / 39 / 40 / 41 / 46 / 48 / 66 / 71
WCDMA 1 / 2 / 4 / 5 / 8
CDMA 800 / 850 / 1900
GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900

I wouldn't say you'll necessarily have "very spotty service". It's true that this doesn't support every single US band, particularly AT&T's "extra" bands (14/29/30), and the forthcoming C-Band (77). So you won't get the best possible service (particularly in regard to data speeds) in some situations. But it should at least get good coverage in the US.
