    International variant. Mostly available in areas of the world with no LTE, although it is available in some markets alongside the I9505. The I9505 is the version Americans see.

    No LTE, slightly better camera (Exmor RS, I9505 has Exmor R. Samsung tricked many), better audio chip, slightly better synthetic benchmarks, better battery saving properties with the phone having two cores for specific loads.

    And I don't normally recommend phone insurance as I think it's a money grab personally, but in your case you might want to apply for it. You're using a product that's not sold in the US and technically not covered by anything, something happens and you could be out of luck. I believe smooth4lyfe got insurance on his phone, you might want to check into it. That or wipe the butter off your fingers when you get ready to do something with it.
