Galaxy S10 Plus - What are the hardware differences between US and EU models?

Hi, I unknowingly bought a US Galaxy S10 Plus in the UK for use in the UK.

Trying to work out the pros and cons of this - I know the processors are different, but perhaps the SnapDragon is no worse.  So I may want to keep it.

But if physical parts are different, hardware servicing might be difficult in the UK...

 - replacing the battery

 - renewing a cracked screen

For the Galaxy S10 Plus, what are the hardware differences between US and EU models?

The difference is the chipsets and with that supported bands. Certain US models support CDMA which is a standard most countries do not use. Also the supported bands may differ to the UK networks and therefore some may have "limited" availability. In general however, the phone should function closely to a UK model. The major difference I'd say would be in the OTA updates in which case you may find updating to the latest software and security patches a little more troublesome.

No different hardware wise. Infact the snap dragon was better than the exnos for the s10 generation of phones

Can't both be true.

You imply that the only hardware difference between Galaxy S10 Plus US and EU versions is the processor.

Does anybody say otherwise?

Yes, that post was contradictory. The radio is different since 5G bands in the US are different to the UK.
