How do you explain that they have it and the rest of the world dosent?
In my country, Portugal, the coverage is very good: HSPA+ 42Mbit/s and LTE 100Mbits (I live is the 3rd biggest city and LTE Speed Tests gives me results between 60 and 80Mbit/s which is way better than any USA result Ive seen.
I ordered the international version , the one avaylable here, do you believe I will be missing much having only the 21Mbit/s HSPA+ (I should get 10/12Mbit/s in real speed test) version regarding internet surfing speed, etc or the 60Mbits are only noticeable when downloading big files?
As I understand it, the LTE bands in North America are different than in Korea. The Exynos chip doesn't support the LTE bands in North America.
