    This is a pretty good deal for those who would like the gold color. I am not familiar with these type of factory unlock phones. Curious, since I have TMobile, would I be getting 4g lte signal and all the same updates as a regular TMobile Note 5? Thinking of buying this as a gift.

    It's the international version meaning no Samsung warranty and no Samsung pay. I'd stay away from this.

    Bottom line is that the value of the Note 5 has already come down more than 20% on the used /resale market!
    It's been 6 weeks since the release!
    When I went to sell my Note 4 after getting the Note 5 all I could get was $350!

    Thanks, and do you know if it would have 4g lte signal and TMobile updates?

    I don't think it would get t-mobile updates....

    T-Mobile: Full compatibility, minus legacy 3G AWS (1700/2100) voice. No VoLTE or WiFi calling due to lack of T-Mobile software.

    It does get lte and it gets updates directly from Samsung, so quicker than carrier updates. I've been using it and it's nice. Especially with no barrier bloat.

    Interesting, thanks for the info. Since you have TMobile, aside from Samsung Pay, wifi calling, volte, etc what other functionalities are missing? What other pros and cons that are not mentioned yet?

    Since TMobile doesn't carry the gold, this may be a treat, but I just want to make sure of everything before I buy it.

    I think that's it. Ive never used wifi calling because I usually have an unlocked phone. Android pay still works. I just wanted the quick updates and bloat free. Also you can uninstall the apps that you don't want on the phone instead of disable them which is nice to free up some space. I haven't had any signal issues. I think if you don't plan on using Samsung pay and wifi calling isn't a big deal, it's a great version to get. LTE in T-Mobile and ATT if you like to switch about. That's all I can think of. haven't really run into any negatives.

    No WiFi calling no warranty no Samsung pay no TMobile updates is not worth saving 120 bucks to most people. Plus if you factor in all the promotions Samsung and TMobile are both offering you would come in at a lower price with a carrier version that has all the features for less than this eBay deal.

    Mind to show all the the promotions that come in at a lower price? If so, I rather get the TMobile version.

    Well Samsung Pay doesn't work with USAA so its worthless if you have USAA.

    I just got mines today in the states. They shipped it next air. It came with the US charger if anyone is wondering. The device looks great.

    Depending on your situation you can get a note 5 for substantially less than that

    I got the n920i model and I get VoLTE on att wifi calling as this is back end not phone initiated att activates this on your line , next I hack excellent LTE and you do get updated from Samsung while carrier phones take months and it's less than Carrie cost full retail.
