Galaxy Note 8 Unboxing! [Exynos International Dual-SIM/Gold]

I have been patiently waiting for a good deal on the international model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for few months now since Note 8 launch since it offers the better Exynos 8895 processor along with unlocked bootloader, meaning you can easily root and install custom ROMs.  Well, around Black Friday I was able to pick up the SM-N950F/DS dual-SIM international model for about $779. (The price is even lower now at $739, check here)  Certainly, this is a steal considering most U.S. retailers selling them at $950 or higher.

How to Root Galaxy Note 7! [Exynos]

For those of you who want to root your Samsung Galaxy Note 7, currently you can root Exynos-based models of Galaxy Note 7 including the SM-N930F, SM-N930FD, and Korean SM-N930K/S/L.  U.S. models based on Qualcomm are not yet supported such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon as they have locked bootloaders.  If you absolutely want root on your Note 7 and you have AT&T, T-Mobile, or any other GSM carrier in the U.S., you can grab the SM-N930F or SM-N930FD model, which work flawless on GSM networks like AT&T or T-Mobile. (You can grab SM-N930FD on eBay for around $699 also much cheaper.)
