It is an operator specific device. IF you don't want it, you can always get the regular unlocked version. Who's stopping you? And there's nothing to be confused about. It doesn't have any different specs anyways.
why can they do a dual sim 1 sim for cdma/gsm and the other for gsm both 3g that would be superb like HTC done

CDMA Phones will have CDMA sim card and GSM Phones will have GSM Sim cards
DoctorChessMaster, 23 Feb 2016here come the versions. wtf is the deal with shamesung and so many versions. y cant they put a... moreThe Reason why there are different versions of the phone is that different carrier offers differnet Technology. For Example AT&T and T-Mobile offers GSM Technology while Verizon Offers CDMA Technology. Which means if you are going to purchse a phone through the carrier which is Verizon you cannot use the phone though AT&T or T-mobile because of the difference with regards to the technology. Furthermore, they used different types of sim cards GSM and CDMA sim cards.
Phones that are through carriers are most of the time locked with that particular carrier. Different carrier's have their own policy with regards to terms and conditions in unlocking phones. Carriers will also add some features onto the phone some comes with apps that are pre-installed already per carriers terms.
With regards to phone replacements, you will need to call you carrier for assistance/troubleshooting and so on. So that's the reason why there are differnet phone verisions and that depends on the carriers.
With regards to apple, everything will go through Apple not the carrier and that includes troubleshooting and warranty even if you purchase the phone through a carrier. Carrier's cannot perform replacement phones/devices with Apple. You need to go through apple itself and thats the reason why there is only one version of the phone, weather it is CDMA or GSM but still incase the Phone is purchase through a carrier, you will still follow their unlocking policy. Specially if the phone is undercontract.
GSMArena is a directory for phone specs. So they have to include separate page for CDMA version of 'Galaxy S7'.

I'm not really sure about other differences so I didn't write them.
here come the versions. wtf is the deal with shamesung and so many versions. y cant they put all bands in one like the BIG apple
