Samsung pay will not work for sure!

My advice comes from being a UK Samsung iPhone user.

Hi @leicesterMan ,

 

as @WelshPaul advised you, Samsung pay and other apps won't work here, although the phone can be used in the UK. In regard to the charger, you will need to check with the US the specifications of this there as they may differ from our phone here in the UK, needing a different charger.

Another thing is to check the network bands the phone has to see if it will work on the network provider you will use.
The US has a different version of 5G, so it's unlikely you will have a 5G service here.

The chargers are USB and will all function exactly the same as they do here.

Hi there, I have an US variant of the S21 ultra and I am using it here in the UK. From my experience, it works fine for the most part. My phone has been restarting at random times and I don't know if this has to with that at all. Additionally, I've found that monthly updates take a long time to reach my phone (still on the July security update) and lastly, if you ever need to get your phone looked at or fixed you'll be out of luck as most UK Samsung stores won't look at your phone because it's an US variant and you would have to send your phone out to get it looked at. Personally I'm waiting for the S23 Ultra as it will have the same chip across all markets so I hope it'll make a difference!
