Question [Q] Differenve between EUR and SEA version - samw d855 model

Hy!

I just bought a new phone and wanted to find out if there are any differences compared to the EUR version?
The model number is the same - it looks like everything is the same except at the software updates: its v10I-SEA-XX not v10g-EUR-XX.

The only difference I found is that the updates are arriving earlier.

Can somebody confirm the differences please?

Thanks!

My SEA version did not give the option to operate on UK LTE networks.

Thank you!

Well I live in 2 countries and neither of them has LTE coverage in the whole country.

And since 100mb, 500mb or the max is 1gb bundle everywhere I dont feel that I need LTE. My internet is always running out even with 3g.

Any other diffrrence?

No other technical differences from what I remember. I only the Euro version now.

Hi Jah

There is a work round to this you can access the hidden menu

Dial *#*#4636#*#* and on preferred network type, choose lte/gsm/wcdma

This way you can get 4G without having to mod or root the phone.

I am pretty happy with stock at the moment. I think you need to reset it each time you reboot but to be honest not having to do that very often either.

I hope that this helps

Yes also with magic menu 3845#*855# but once you restart you need to use the magic menu again as it lost LTE connection. Also this version is not covered by European LG warranty.
