    I am looking at this Ebay item which claims to be official UK Samsung stock: 182083996901

    The vendor sent me this slightly useless (or suspicious?) reply:

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in our products.

    This device is SM-G930F. It is an official UK stock factory unlocked.

    Unfortunately we are unable to specify what the processor is.

    The 1 year warranty is with the UK manufacturer.

    Kind regards,
    LO Team


    My message:

    Hello,

    Is this a standard 930F (not 930FD) phone, labelled on the box "for European SIM cards only", and with the Exynos (not Qualcomm) processor?

    There are many versions of these phones on Ebay and Amazon and some don't do 4G for example.

    What is the warranty - Samsung, or your company?

    How old is this stock?

    I am on Vodafone contract.

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Peter

    If it's definitely a UK model then it will have the Exynos CPU, but i would also want clarification.

    It's very easy to find out, with an app CPU-Z or AIDA64, so the fact they haven't done that, rings alarm bells.

    As you say it could be a handset from anywhere otherwise and not a UK/global model.

    Why don't you get the handset as an upgrade directly from Vodafone?

    They want a lot more :)

    Also my phone is SIM-free; didn't come with the contract.

    I would be looking at another provider on sim free then (if you are near end of contract). At least you know the handset will be a UK/global one, plus you could get insurance included.

    Another useless/suspicious reply from the same "official UK phone" vendor:

    Hello,

    Thank you for your email. We can confirm all available product information is currently listed on the products selling page and therefore if this is not listed, it has not been provided to us by the manufacturer.
    We can only therefore apologize for any inconvenience caused by this.

    Kind regards,
    LO Team
