It seems like Samsung has made some changes to the international Exynos Galaxy S9/S9+ and not all T-Mobile 4G LTE bands are supported this year unlike previous Galaxy phones. AT&T is not affected but if you are on T-Mobile, just know you may get stuck on HSPA+ most of the time if you buy the international Exynos Galaxy S9/S9+ models.
In this benchmark test comparison, we take up the U.S. Galaxy Note 8 Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 model vs. international Note 8 Exynos 8895 and find out which one is the better/faster processor.
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.
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.)
