      Answer

      People are salty about the S7 not getting updates. Also, there are two main advantages to the unlocked version: 1) Unlocked phones can be used and migrated to any carrier with absolutely no hassle (put the SIM card in and it'll work) 2) The phone has no carrier bloat. You won't see the AT&T or Verizon apps on it or any of the other carrier's apps

      I use Metro PCS for my carrier and don't want to go back to a contract like we used to have with Sprint, etc. Will the UNlocked 8+ work on the Metro PCS network? I've asked the Metro PCS store here where I bought my current phone but they don't know.   (9 Answers)

        Answer

        It's very important which standard does support cell phone. Verizon and Sprint work only with cell phones which support CDMA. Metro PSC it's a sub-network of T-Mobile. T-Mobile, AT&T, and some others use GSM. This device (Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+) support both standards as GSM as CDMA. It means that it will work with any carrier. On the product page, find Carrier Compatibility and you will see T-Mobile on the list. Metro PCS use network of T-Moble. Carrier Compatibility: AT&T, Consumer Cellular, Cricket, H2O Wireless, Net10, Republic Wireless, Simple Mobile, Sprint, T-Mobile, TRACFONE, US Cellular, Verizon.

                  Answer

                  There is 4 inches of difference in size, the S8+ is larger and has a better infinity screen view, the ability to read emails, text messages and watch videos is larger and you get to see everything in its entirety!! It really depends on what your needs/wants are...both phones have the same software, memory and speed processors its just one is longer than the other.

                  Can this unlocked phone use Samsung Pay? I heard last year the Note 7 was not compatible with Samsung Pay if it was an unlocked phone (not sure if that was true or not). Additionally, are there any downsides to getting it unlocked?   (5 Answers)

                    Answer

                    Yes, Samsung Pay works just fine. Some downsides of getting an Unlocked model is that some carrier-specific features might not work such as VoLTE, carrier visual voicemail, and Wifi calling.
