For me this news is very cool
it wont let smuggled korean version phones to becoming usable outside northern asia
unless they would root it before they sell it
this step of samsung will help those local legal players which pay taxes to not be getting sinked
SiddharthYadav, 27 Sep 2013Kiss my a** sammy, you are on the road to your downfall. Firstly you don't give the snapdragon... moreThey got greedy and thought they can manipulate the world as they want but they were very wrong.No other Smartphone manufacture is doing this diversity thing and for that they are actually getting less popular everyday.I saw people used to love and always have Galaxies phones turning to Sony and LG after what they did with the two versions of the S4.
so if I got device from Europe, specified for Europe.. and then traveling to Asia.. I cant make a call ? Bahhh
What's the point of paying top dollar for an unlocked phone which is now locked in a different way? I'll be giving serious consideration to other brands because I travel to various regions on quite a regular basis. The Note three will now be useless under those circumstances. This reminds me of HTC's move to lock bootloaders. I hope other consumers will join me in switching to another manufacturer.
WTF this mean I can't use a local sim when I travel to different continents, either I need to pay expensive roaming cost or get a local phone which I have no use when I return to my continent.
I will think twice of getting a Samsung on future.
This is bullshit.Big colossal bullshit from Samsung.If I travel in Japan with an Europe bought Galaxy S4 and purchase a Japanese SIM to talk cheaper with my Japanese friends or business partners I can't do that?Are you retarded Samsung?
Kiss my a** sammy, you are on the road to your downfall. Firstly you don't give the snapdragon 800 in selected regions, dual sim phones in some regions, then if a person thinks of importing you don't support him. Not to forget the people who travel. Its time you mend your ways!! Reaching the top is easy but remaining there isn't.
