It is widely available in Germany since April. What are you talking about about just ariving in Europe? I boght it in April frim the mai retailer here Mediamarkt. Currently there are 203 online shops that sell the phone only in Germany. For those who say it is small, it is like the s9 without the curve screen. The are also people that want to have a phone that can be handled with just one hand.

By the time it reached other markets, they already had the Lollipop update. So... Lollipop was preinstalled. The first gen device has a bit crap software support. But it got an update recently (CSB1) for the F model. Other models also got updates afterwards. Check on Sammobile

My 2016/2017 model is still recovering security updates, January being the last

3000 mAh Battery very less for 6 inch Full HD display. Every time u have to stick with black will not help bettery.... 4000 mAh Battery better idea.
Bob, 19 Mar 2019It's not a small phone. It might not be a tall phone but it's a wide phone.How many phones can you find with width shorter than 70cm these days? It IS a small phone.
