Is it safe to buy this phone on eBay from let's say India or Hong Kong? I am worried because of the SIM locking that Samsung's been doing. I'd like to use the phone in the UK and am afraid I'm going to brick it.

In addition, any thoughts for/against this phone vs HTC 816? I'm considering both but leaning towards the Samsung.

Thank you!

I have my phone as a gray import. No issues what so ever. just check if the phone is not locked to any network. My phone is from UAE.

Do you mind elaborating why you think it's a better choice? I can't decide between the two... Thank you!!
