USA pricing just got huge price reduction, why don’t we?

First Poster

Can someone tell me why the Samsung S10 phone line in the USA just got a $200 price reduction, but the UK or any other country didn’t? That means it is now cheaper to buy a phone from the USA and have it shipped here, buy a charger and still be better off. Is this fair that the Americans once again get treated better than the rest of the world on pricing or anything else, etc? For those of us that DO buy our phones SIM free, it hurts us right now, for everyone else that is on contract, imagine if your whole contract was $200 cheaper for the whole contract! That means less paid overall and a cheaper monthly contract. Ask you contract provider WHY are we being done over by SAMSUNG? Is the contract provider going to make up the difference, or put pressure on SAMSUNG to reduce their pricing.

Sadly prices and offers have always been different dependant on country.

 

The same way some variants of the phone have been available in one country but not another.

 

The issue with importing a phone can the manufacturing warranty isn't valid or region lock is in place so your sim wont work or some features such as Samsung Pay won't work.

 

I do however agree with you.

Keep in mind, the US version is single sim only which IMO is worthless. Plus if you're looking at buying one through T-Mobile the bands are restricted. I'm heading to the UK this month and would have bought one there, but it was less expensive on Amazon.

I bought the international dual sim model off Amazon (G975F/DS), because Samsung refuses to sell the dual sim here in the states for some unknown reason, while other companies are now selling the dual sim here in the states with full warranty.

Also they are still selling the note 9 at full price and now a year later or so adding buds as a promo as if the note 9 is brand new.

In the UK the prove has been dropped by £200 for a new 512Gb Samsung Galaxy Note 9 plus upto £350 trade in for selected phones.
