A few days ago, we saw an unlocked Galaxy S4 show up on the eBay Daily Deals site before promptly disappearing. Well, now it's back. The last time around, only about 200 of them were sold before they ran out, so if you really want to get in on this action, you'd better hurry.


In case you have a poor memory and have forgotten the bajillion articles around the internet about this device, here are the specs:

  • 5" 1080p Super AMOLED HD display (441 PPI)
  • 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos processor 
  • 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • 13 MP Rear shooter, 2MP front camera
  • 16GB/32GB/64GB Storage, microSD card slot with support up to 64GB
  • Android 4.2.2 with a "totally new and upgraded user experience" Bluetooth 4.0
  • 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi
  • IR Blaster
  • MHL 2.0
  • Temperature and humidity sensors
  • 2,600mAH battery
  • 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm, 130g
  • Two colors: Black Mist, White Frost

As with before, there are also some limitations on where this device can ship to:

Excludes: US Protectorates, APO/FPO, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Tunisia, Brazil, Ecuador, Cambodia, Indonesia, China, India, El Salvador, Turkey, Mexico, PO Box

Still, this is the best price you can get for an unlocked version of the international phone. Direct your pointers to the link below post haste.

    $700 is a lot for a phone that has no 4g

    • sjmoore00

      Depends on what you consider 4g. It says it has HSDPA, which is what some carriers pass off as 4g, but is really3.5g, or 3g+. It is also said to have LTE band 5, but that is not what some need in the US. I agree though, lot to pay for not all LTE.

        But,... But,... Octa ! ;)

        HSDPA is being deprecated by every carrier that uses it in favor of LTE.

    "Excludes Brazil"

    Ordered one to the UK, thanks to the stock shortages here it's both faster and cheaper to get this one <_<

  • unr3al21

    In the UK..... 699 plus 99 shipping = £515 ish plus Import tax = £623 i think i will pass.

    • http://williamjudd.com/ William Judd

      Only £40 more to get it a week sooner, and to get the octa-core version instead of the quad-core? Definitely worthwhile!

      • unr3al21

        I know that.... but i feel over 600 for a phone is just not worth it. I believe development will be less for that version too due to availability.

        • http://williamjudd.com/ William Judd

          Yeah, that's a small worry - but I'll have awesome benchmark results! Yeah!

          • unr3al21

            Haha you will indeed. The phone will be excellent no doubting that. Good luck.

      • CJ Holder

        IIRC the Octa-core version will be available to networks that don't have 4G, o2 for example. All their phones are unlocked no 4g.

    How do these daily deal work??

    Who would pay this much for a phone?

    • http://twitter.com/jokesyn8 Jokesy

      People pay more for an iPhone in my country

  • RaptorOO7

    So where is the 32GB & 64GB options. Those storage options are always listed in the tech specs BUT no where to be found online or otherwise. Deceptive business practices.

    $799, no thanks

  • dlee

    Can this be used on T-Mobile's LTE network?
