So i found the snapdragon unlocked versions of the S20\S20+ on ebay via nevermsrp store

How likely is anyone to develop for these models?
The exynos sucks so bad i have to assume the unlocked snapdragon will get more attention than prior models?

couldnt have been the 3XL cause i didnt get one, def been awhile though. Im not on as much as I used to be...too many snowflakes lol.

Corona virus has everything shut down here in Ontario, Canada. movies, restaurants, gyms (that one hits hard with me being a bodybuilder).

its crazy.

Same here in Hawaii.. everything is shuttered.
I did a outdoor workout today lol

So would you get the 20+ or.ultra?
I don't see any benefits from ultra

I don't feel like one plus will ever have a top tier camera setup so I don't feel like waiting

If your in the US forget the International or you will regret it! The EXYNOS chipset on the s20s are battery Hogs with terrible battery life. They also run quite hot! Not sure why this is happening but there have been many complaints on the Samsung S20 Community Forum. So might want to look there first before you decide. I have the Unlocked U.S. 512gb version with Snapdragon chipset. Have been quite pleased with battery life. The other thing this time around is the Snapdragon is the more powerful chipset. It is just better in every way.

- US version has only one card sim slot

Are you serious??? US is known for limited 5G coverage, in fact, 5G development in US is a joke comparing to other countries...

its a damn pricey device, for me here in Canada almost $2400 tax in.

I have a local store here i buy from but with you in Hawaii (lucky you lol) doesnt help out much.

Ebay is an option or the Wonda site the other user listed (thank you sir).
