hi all, I was looking to get a new Galaxy S21, and came across this from Amazon Spain
Just wondering if there would be any risks in purchasing a phone from abroad? WOuld it still work ok on our network here?
I bought iPhones from Amazon Germany before and they worked fine.
OK thanks. That's good to know
Me too, my last 2 Samsung Galaxy models came from Amazon Germany, no issues whatsoever.
I bought my current phone from the Netherlands because it was half of what it would have cost in Ireland and over €100 cheaper than it was in the UK and with no vat/import duties. Very happy with it. Only annoying thing is the fast charger that came with it is for EU plug so you might have to buy an Irish one.
Vodafone Ireland have the same one for €10 more on pay as you go. Lots of people have ported a spare SIM and they usually come unlocked. This one also comes with 3 months Disney plus redeemed through a Samsung account. https://n.vodafone.ie/shop/phones/samsung/galaxy-s21-fe.html?gallery=payg
Note the same one. The Vodafone one has 2GB less RAM for example.
Thanks for the heads up op!
Just to keep in mind, the S22 is supposed to be released next month, so possibly further drops ahead?
Good tip! thanks. I might hold off and see what happens
Was looking at this thinking great deal, but, did a bit of googling the new one is being announced on feb 8 with pre orders that day apparently. Looks like it'll cost 850e and sometimes they do preorder deals so might be worth hanging on.
All this is based on leaks etc so nothing concrete yet. But for a new spec phone vs last years the 200e would be worth it imo.
Reading early reviews of S22. Not entirely convinced it's going to be any better. Few sites saying very comparable.
However, if you preorder an s22 though you get samsung bud pro worth 200e?
All of a sudden, i want the samsung bud pro! something I've never even considered buying before......
The reviews on the Samsung site are terrible. I'd take a look at those first.
I got the S20 and the battery has been awful since day one. I've been an avid Samsung user right back since the S2..
They sure are! But are they related to each of the 3 models? A lot of them reference the S21+ phone.
has anyone bought from the phone shops in town and do you get a warranty?
