    I think in the past those markets used to get better ram and storage options but in today's market it's more balanced out which is the way Samsung should have done years ago imo.

    Not 100% convinced why I get a different chipset in the UK to those in America either. About time they balanced that out too.
    The reason why Samsung uses the Snapdragon soc only in its USA phones is deeply embedded in a quagmire (at least to a layman like me) of legalese. All these companies stab each other in the morning(i.e sue in court) and in the evening make out on the sofa (i.e enter into new contracts).

    Agreed. I want a snapdragon phone so badly looking at how fast and efficient their chips are these days.

    America basically loses out on every Samsung model that runs an Exynos. Licensing stuff. A deal with Qualcomm made 30 years ago and still effective makes it very cost inefficient for Samsung to release Exynos models in USA. They get around this on the flagships by using a Snapdragon there instead, but the lower range models where they use Exynos as one of the cost cutting stuff (they make it after all), they don't get to the USA unless gray imports.

    an agreement that long sounds like a REALLY stupid business decision. Just like giving star players super long contracts like for 10 years when you only get 5 healthy years out of them before they get too old. Like Albert Pujols's contract pays him $30,000,000 when he's 41 (btw most know he's older than he is listed.)

    I don't remember the exact details, but it's for the patents and Qualcomm tech. As long as Samsung is using Qualcomm patents/tech in their antenna, they can't get around this. Right now they're in court for this since well, yes it's taken already 30 years or so. Apple is also on the court with Qualcomm on this, although they're more probably in it so that they don't pay Qualcomm licensing fees anymore (not like they'd decrease the prices if they stopped paying Qualcomm though).

    Not sure how much Qualcomm is worth but maybe Sammy should buy them. The founders I'm sure are filthy rich although they don't have super familiar names.

    You usually get Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets in the US while everywhere else gets Exynos...probably because Qualcomm is American
