Good phone but still has many functions geolocked
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2019
This is an excellent phone. A big improvement on the S3 that I did have. I will say that is is important to realize that even though the phone can be unlocked to make calls and operate in different countries than it's origin, SOME FEATURES REMAIN GEOLOCKED AND WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY IN REGIONS OUTSIDE THE COUNTY OF ORIGIN. These include the somewhat annoying Bixby feature which still remains linked to China and will show some results for China. That can not be changed. In addition, Samsung Pay will not work at all if you do not have a bank account in China. Many other features are also still are locked to China. I think that this issue should have been stated in the description. It is a good phone but it is real irritating to pay this much for a phone and not to be able to have it able to be completely configured to work for the area the phone will operate.
