I was searching on eBay for a Samsung Galaxy Black Edition (the one with a black screen and a Note 3 style leather textured back):



Then I came across this quite sleek looking Prototype Samsung Galaxy S4 Developer Edition:








And I thought to myself: "I must get one."

It has a black, logo-less rectangular screen with square corners, and a logo-less matte plastic back cover. In my opinion, this prototype looks much better than the mass produced model. Does anyone here own one? If so, what's it like?

I wish I could, but a few things are steering me away from it:

1. It's a US phone, and apparently it's locked to US Cellular (I live in Australia)
2. It's a CDMA phone, so I'm not sure about its compatibility with Aussie networks
3. They're a US seller, so postage might be a bit of a pain because they "May not ship to Australia"

Looks to me like it won't be much use in Australia. I'd give it a miss.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking as well. Still, it's a fascinating phone.
