    I see that the Snapdragon outperformed the Exynos in some benchmarks. Is there any advantage whatsoever to purchasing an international version for use in the USA? I was considering simply because some of the combinations are sold out at Samsung or pushed back to late in the month.

    No advantage at all imo. The snapdragon smacks the Exynos this time around and is also more efficient with the 7nm process. Exynos is still 8nm. Just my opinion, but I wouldn't do it.

    Why would you want to do that? If i had a choice i would have gotten a snapdragon variant. The only thing i liked
    in the international variant that i am getting is the Prism Green. And its actually selling like hotcakes here. Had to talk to a friend high up just so i can get a reservation for Prism Green. Luckily one person cancelled there pre-order.

    Instant gratification... The unlocked 128GB S10+ in white is "sold out." It was previously set to ship on the 22nd of March (release is the 8th) which I assume will get pushed out further. I also kinda liked the dual SIM. But not worth it if it's such a big drop in performance.

    I considered getting the International version specifically for the dual sim capability — I'd love to dump my company-issued iPhone and carry one device.

    Yes it has a slightly slower SoC, but not the end of the world. More of a concern for me would be spotty security updates and dealing with any warranty issues. Samsung Canada service will not touch the International version. These last two points swayed me to the NA version.
