Mine arrived a few hours ago. Spent the last while de-samsungifying it. Handy that you can reject the install of a lot of Samsung sh1te during setup. Nice phone.

I just slapped one of these one mine: https://ie.rs-online.com/web/p/travel-adapters/7839568/


You can find these on eBay too. I have a bunch for these occasions.

EDIT: These converter plugs open up and close around the EU charger so it's a permanent fixture.

That's just a dumb plug, basically. Has no effect on the charger.

Useful guide here for removing some of the sh1te that Samsung have preinstalled on these phones.
Handy for removing Facebook, the MS office trial apps, Bixby etc.
Note that it is a little bit technical, so maybe not for everyone.
