The last Galaxy S4 eBay Daily Deal we posted was sold out within minutes of posting, so move quick if you're considering an unlocked Galaxy S4 - it's back on eBay Daily Deals for $740, $40 more than previously. This may not sound like a 'deal,' but most sites are still taking pre-orders for this version of the S4, and many are charging $900 or more for the device. This eBay Daily Deal gets your S4 shipped out in the next week.

This deal won't last long - so hop on it while it's still there, because it definitely won't be sticking around. This is an unlocked 3G GSM version (meaning it won't work on Verizon, Sprint, or really even fully work on T-Mobile) of the phone, so you'll have to be on a GSM carrier. There is no LTE support. The advantage to this model is that it's the version powered by Samsung's new Exynos Octa dual-quad-core chip. Most markets (including the US) will be getting Galaxy S4s with Snapdragon 600 processors, which does support LTE, so this phone does vary from the one many carriers will be selling.

Head to the source link to take advantage of the offer now.

    This, or a new unlocked HTC One with LTE and T-Mobile/ATT support for $575? Hmmm

    • Freak4Dell

      No contest. Definitely the One.

    One where you can buy the phone for less than $900, and with a concrete delivery date of next week, not a "pre-order."

    The 544MP3 GPU in the Exynos 5410 S4 is somewhat disappointing compared to the Adreno 320 in benchmarks, though the CPU may compete favourably. It should also be noted that the Adreno 320 is OpenGL ES3 ready (with the right drivers), but the same cannot be said about the SGX544.

    I don't think I would go out of my way for the Exynos version of the device. Something tells me that there are few (if any) real-world benefits, and the lack of GLES30 is a major con even if there were incremental graphics performance benefits.

    I thought the octa had support for all LTE bands (including Tmobile)

      There is no indication that any of the i9500 devices shipping right now have LTE. The chipset supports it, but that definitely does not mean the phone has it. The eBay listing does not indicate the presence of LTE, either. Tons of Note II models with Exynos 4 chips - which support LTE - do not have LTE.

        Thanks for clearing that up.

    Every place I saw sells it for at least $800 right now. And this one is in stock, in the U.S., whereas in most other places it's not.

    How can we buy one without an android police review first?? *hint hint* ;)

  • Ahoy

    Wanted the black one :(

    Don't buy the exynos version, especially if you plan on installing aosp roms on it at some point.
    Samsung never releases libraries for its SoC which leads to terrible support from the community.
    You've been warned.
