That's the newest gimmick. Newegg is even guilty of it (but if you're paying attention, at least they TELL you you're about to be screwed). Free shipping and good price, but it's shipping from China. Worse: Sometimes it takes like 3 weeks for them to even send it out the door! Knowing that, I'd much rather pay extra and have it sooner. Best bet now days is to contact the sellers on Amazon and Ebay to see where they ship from (if it doesn't say on their page).

They actually ship from the Philippines, but yeah, it's coming from Asia

God damn it. This makes living in Australia even worse. There is a website called Kogan and Mobicity where I buy my devices and it ships from Hong Kong. But get this, they still want me to pay $15 AUD for shipping and it takes 3 to 4 weeks to come. Shipping fees even apply to their accessories and as far as I can tell, Ebay is the only online store that will ship free to Australia from overseas. So much BS.
Previous devices:

HTC Incredible S S710e (Eventually stopped turning on)

Nexus 7 2012 (Half the screen stopped responding to touch after leaving it for 2 months, also has weird marks on bezel, no idea from where)

Sony Xperia Z C6603 (Passed it down to family member, I actually hated this device)

Current devices:

Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900I
