So just the seller's 1-year warranty? I really want the Snapdragon version.

That's what it looks like, if you want more/better warranty get it insured

I can deal with the warranty, but are there any other downsides to using a US version in the UK? As in do all mobile bands, OTA updates and sim cards work fine? Or would there be other downsides? I'd really like to pick up a Snapdragon version for the battery boost Vs Exynos

I had the s10e snapdragon, it works perfectly and the 855 is much superior in everything compared to the exynos, the wifi should be faster due to the qualcomm chip, the camera / pictures should be better due to better processing and the battery life better, the phone was a delight to use, and I had the s10 after this and the s10e was miles better imho the screen was refreshing too, I got rid of it because the screen was too small to what I was used to and ultimately though because im a leftie and the fingerprint sensor was at the top on the right side so it was very awkward

Thanks a lot for the quick reply, that is fantastic to hear! From what you say and what I've heard it looks like Snapdragon is the best route to go. For this price then (and no custom charge/import) I might just go for it. Thanks again for your response, it was really helpful.
Damn good price. No green sadly? I guess the seller ran out...

Oh darn. I think you're right, they had all the colours when i posted the deal.
Sadly it's single sim only, or I would have jumped all over this, MAYBE lol...
Very tempted by this offer! I'm looking at the s10e to upgrade from the s8 hmmm
The perfect upgrade for my pixel2xl and the wife's S8.
Looking forward to them turning up now!

I received one of these yesterday. Arrived open box but phone seemed as new. Came with free 4000 mAh power bank and stylus if you care for such things. Gave activation errors as trying to activate on US Sprint network, but worked fine after that with a Three SIM, but notification nags remained permanently in place (and stay after reboot). I had to connect the phone to a PC to install "ADB" (follow an online guide), and then typed some commands into powershell to uninstall the Sprint software (plus Bixby and other Samsung junk whilst I was at it, again guides on the web for both). Phone and user now seem happy, but I wouldn't recommend buying a US model for anyone who isn't comfortable "hacking" into their phone with ADB.

That does sound like a bother. Glad you managed to get it working as you want 😄

Hopefully others will find your instructions useful!

For the money saved, I couldn't be happier; it's a lovely phone. I think Samsung would get more sales if their bloatware wasn't so intrusive. ADB is a must for people like myself.

100%. One of the main reasons i've avoided ever getting a Samsung smartphone.

That's really helpful, thanks for letting me know/details about what to expect importing a US phone, thank you!
