Yes, it is clear that you pay more for the support of the manufacturers and you have their guarantees, as long as you don't mess with their product.
It is interesting though, that as far as the DS phones are concerned the SAMSUNG Galaxy S Duos was officially announced and released only in Germany.It is on sale in other European countries also, but they are nowhere in the respective official SAMSUNG pages! Here in Finland the phone is not on sale (actually very few DS models are and they are of the older types).
I called the local official SAMSUNG rep, to ask about whether the S Duos will be released in Finland and the answer was that.... they know as much as I do!!!In my question if they support this model if it's bought from some other country, their answer was that as long as there is a valid international guarantee for the product, they fully support it.
I haven't been able to contact other brands yet.

No, I haven't consider it as it is completely unknown to me.

Yes, I guess it is.Plus the fact that it is more expensive.
