Excerpt: I received an unlocked Samsung Galaxy International GT-I9195 smartphone from B&H that was from the Czech Republic. The default language was Czech and there were welcome/shutdown screens from O2 (a telecommunications company operating in Europe and Czech Republic) and some other items in Czech language. I had to spend considerable time switching the phone to English and deleting some of the Czech items (apps and/or bookmarks).
Summary: I gave an extra star because I like the color purple. On the second night after receiving it, it overheated while charging. I mean, blisteringly hot. After unplugging it and putting it under the fan, there seemed to be no damage, but since then it's been freezing in the middle of doing ordinary things, and yesterday, Day 4 of having the phone, it froze completely, then restarted itself.
Excerpt: This is a region locked phone. It will work fine with US Service providers but once you insert an international SIM, it locks out both SIMs and asks for a SIM Network Unlock Pin. Staples customer support has no clue (infact in stores, the tech support argued that they never sell unlocked phone !! ) Samsung US does not support this phone as it is an international phone, Service providers here won't help as its not bought from them.
No guarantee.- A big problem! The money you save is not saved at all if you need to repair the product or buy another one.

Summary: When I bought this product I was really happy because I had a cell phone that worked really good, complied with all my requirements and let me use two SIM cards! I bought this product on December 2013 and used it to all it's potential untill february 16 2014. During the time the product worked it sometimes got hot, but nothing that had not happened with any other phone I've had in the past. But on december 14, the battery suddenly uncharged and the product was very hot.
Summary: I'm not happy, I got a phone that doesn't read the sim card, or is locked, I can't use it in Venezuela. I also came with a charger that used in Europe and its manuals and box are in French language. I had to pay extra money for install a program to read the sim card. NOT RECOMMENDED!
Summary: I purchased this product because I like all my other Samsung products, However, this phone, I am already having an issue. I turned it on and when I tried to use the internet without the SIM card, it immediately gave me a notice that the phone has been corrupted. It puzzled and scared me. So I turned it off immediately. I'm thinking maybe this won't happen if I had a SIM card. So I will wait until I get to use it in the Philippines next week when I insert a SIM card.
