    I did see a report of someone purchasing the Galaxy S5 sim free in the UK but upon receipt they claimed that it would not operate with 4G. Can anyone throw light on this?

    If I were to go for the Galaxy S5 sim free UK unbranded - How can I be sure that the item would be the true UK version?

    Currently with the S4.

    Look at the radio specs for the phone and compare them with the radio frequencies for the carrier you're going to use. (There's no such thing as getting 4G without a carrier. You have to have SOME carrier's SIM in the phone [and an account with that carrier] to get 4G.)

    The report that I saw indicated that his provider was a 4G source but his S5 was not capable of taking 4G. The poster did not indicate as to a fault with the phone - just that it would not work with 4G. Did not make sense to me .... but.
