    mikedt 你好

    That vendor is in Hong Kong, so almost certainly you'll be buying a grey import, which Samsung UK won't honour the warranty on. Any problems that requires warranty service, you would have to pay to ship it back to HK, and wait. Also you may well be charged import duty and 20% VAT by UK customs, which would put it up to the UK S8 retail price, maybe more.
