Romieo589, 27 Jun 2017Does the US version of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ works outside of the USA? GeekyPranav answered that it had to be unlocked. Technically leaving the US, assuming you are still using your cell provider's SIM, then you would be ROAMING outside the US and it doesn't need to be unlocked for that. Roaming can be quite costly - your cell phone company may have a travel plan to help with that.
If you are going on a trip where unlocking can help is that you have researched and found that there is a local provider in the country you are going to and you can buy their SIM/plan which in turn will be a lot cheaper than ROAMING. If the phone is not unlocked you cannot do this.
However, more importantly you should google "newegg cell phone compatibility" for the country list of frequencies and ensure the phone covers that frequency for the country you are visiting. The frequencies are listed here for the phone in question - and model (you click USA). IMO this phone probably will work in most places - lower end/mid tier can have issues since they haven't loaded the phone with as many frequencies due to costs.
Another option - just buy an el cheapo pay-as-you-go phone in the country you are visiting - again researching costs before you go. I live in Canada and I get a US Roaming plan via a site called RoamMobility - they piggyback off T-Mobile. As soon as I cross the border I slip in the SIM - way cheaper and lately has worked better than a few years ago.

Mine is working like a charm since 2 months. I understand that after paying 900$ if such things happen we tend to get frustrated. But as per your issue, it just seems like a faulty device more than anything else.
It's all bullshit, no cover for protection, just bare smooth body in black to have touch feeling every time you use it. It's you maiden date with a 900$ set. Sometimes I forget the front, have to fumble to operate. Just Last Wish Chinese Indian version if 128 GB storage and 6 GB Ram, not even available outside for 5k $ even! It's a Hoax!
The phone suddenly give me 100 % charged and changed the time to 7 am while it was 1 am and when i remove ir from charger after 2 hours charging it give me 96 % ??? It just not the phone who deserve 900 $ it just like note 3

Going to just enjoy the phone without looking for any possible flaw fault or whatever, that whole red tint thing did my nut in! After I read about it I was convinced I had that issue but I didn't it was all in my head.
Not having a go at you, if that's what you want to do with your free time then go ahead it's just not my thing and if you have to go to such an extent to find a tiny scratch or two what the point. I don't use my phone under a desk light.
Hold it under a bright light like your desk lamp. You will see scratches. The new S8 fps has a glossy paint finish which made it more scratch prone. Is your's scratched up?
Edit: bring it outdoors when it's bright and sunny. I noticed the fingerprint scanner was all scratched up. They should've gone with a matte finish to avoid this, but then again it'll ruin the look of the phone.

The case is simply gorgeous and premium. It also adds that extra protection that we always look for. TUMI case retails at 60$ if purchased seperately.
Note: This offer is available through MyGalaxy app only. You will need to register on Mygalaxy aap and wait for the banner to pop up (Might take few days). Once the pop up appears you will get a coupon code that can be redeemed on samsung e-shop site.

Romieo589, 27 Jun 2017Does the US version of the Samsung Galaxy S8+ works outside of the USA? Only if it is an unlocked version. If the device is carrier driven, it will not work outside USA as carriers across USA lock GSM bands.
I dont reside in USA so i might be wrong:) But to the best of my knowledge, above info should be correct.

Apparently it is all about numbers for you. If that is the case you should stick with 5s.
This is highly expensive phone so it is expected to have 120 fps and 240 fps video recordings. but it does not have. Samsung fools the public. still the iPhone 5S is much better than this phone because it has at least 120 fps recording capability.
JohnNy L, 26 Jun 2017Is this phone very fragile and can it be used without a case or the glass would break??It can be used without tempered glass and/or a case. However for that you will have to take care of the phone like a baby!!!
Additionally, this phone has Corning Gorilla 5 glass on front & back. Although the glass is tough enough, it is prone to scratches. So over a period of time the phone will develop visible scratches without screen protector.
Hope this helps.
