    Depending on the market, your phone might have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or a Samsung Exynos 8890. Some benchmarks showed that the Snapdragon 820 is significantly more powerful in graphics processing while the Exynos 8890 is more efficient in terms of heat and battery consumption.

    If you're not aware of the differences, do you really care about the subtleties?

    They're both really competent chipsets and will serve you well.

    If you're interested, here's what is sold and where...

    will it effect resale in UK?

    Check if its stolen/reported lost.

    ​Wouldn't show up as stolen over here as they don't check international sources. This might lack certain bands and will obviously have no warranty with Samsung over here in the event of an issue. As far as I know the US phone has the Snapdragon and the UK has the Exynos CPU. If the seller didn't mention that this was a US variant then I would be inclined to return it as £300 is not *that* cheap for a 2nd hand S7 with no warranty whatsoever.
