Gents (and ladies), I am in love with the S8 and have been playing with it at every store I pass by here in China (I work here part of the year). I am willing to sell my too damn wide iPhone 6S+ and finally say bye-bye to Apple IF I can be assured that a Verizon S8 will give me 4G coverage in China (I use China Telecom while I am here). So far I cannot find out any information on this and when I try to get technical and look up all the bands my eyes just go cross-eyed. Any experts out there willing to chime in? Here is all the information I can provide to make the situation clear. I must have a Verizon compatible S8 since the area of NC that I reside simply has no reliable AT&T coverage. Believe me, this is no BS. It's Verizon and only Verizon. Let me point out that the Verizon Samsung S7 and S7 Edge had no 3G coverage and very limited 4G coverage in China (a friend of mine who had one here was constantly without data in parts of this city). Meanwhile the AT&T S7 had the needed 4G LTE bands. This can all be checked on willmyphonework.net but they have zip on the S8 so far. In checking that website the Verizon NOTE 7 it had 3G and 4G coverage on all three Chinese carriers (China Mobile, Unicom and Telecom) so that makes me think the S8 likely has similar coverage. Thanks much. While the all glass phone and how fragile it seems worries me (I have dropped my iPhones, in their cases, countless times with zero cracks) I am willing to risk the S8 purchase and stick it in a good bumper case and pray.
