The Samsung Galaxy S9 comes in slightly different variants, depending on which part of the world it was intended to be sold in. Whereas the version designed for the US market comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip inside, Galaxy S9 devices sold internationally all feature Samsung's Exynos 9810 chips instead. Many consider the Exynos devices superior due to their edge in performance (and better development), but others prefer them because they're the only version that can be purchased with dual-SIM support.

For a couple of years now, Samsung has sold their flagships with Snapdragon chips in the US and Exynos chips everywhere else. The performance (and development, interestingly enough) is superior on the Exynos models nowadays, and the dual-SIM capabilities of these SM-G965F/DS variants can often come in handy. You can now pick up a dual-SIM S9+ for $754.99, which is lower than previous deals we've posted about.
The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ already came out earlier this year, but if you're not overly enticed by Samsung's new flagships or prefer to save a few hundred dollars and get something that's slightly less cutting-edge, you might consider purchasing last year's Galaxy S8 or S8+. If that sounds like you, you'll be pleased to know there are a few deals on eBay that'll net you an unlocked S8 or S8+ (either new or refurbished) starting at just $411.84. Read More

The Galaxy S9 and S9+, Samsung's flagships for 2018, went on sale last month (just three weeks ago, in fact), but you can already find good deals online if you don't want to pay the full MSRP.

Today, we've got another eBay deal on the dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S9+ for just $769.99, a total savings of $70. Read More
Many people swear by the Exynos versions of Samsung's Galaxy flagships, as performance is often better and there's more development. Others require a phone with the ability to use two SIM cards at once. If you belong to either (or both) of those parties, you may want to have a look at these deals for the dual-SIM Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ on eBay. Read More

An update to Google's Phone app began rolling out to users earlier today. Besides enabling the seamless video calling feature with Duo, which also works on v14, this update comes with a few additions of its own. The previously discussed Assisted Dialing feature for international travelers has been enabled and is ready to make life a little easier, and users on Android 8.1 will now see the white navigation bar that's been creeping into a few of Google's apps. If you're using a dual-SIM phone, you might also be getting the option to pick your SIM immediately before a call, though this might not be live yet. Read More
