That's the international version (G930F and G935F) that has been available from eBay several times for ~$500 and ~$600 respectively.

I assume this phone won't work with Tmobile voLTE (Voice over LTE), Tmobile WiFi calling, and Tmobile LTE band 12?

This might not be the place, but the cost of new phones is absurd. Do people really play this much?

No to VoLTE and Wifi calling. Yes to band 12.

So the Con for this phones from this site [androidpolice.com] are
  • You'll have to work directly with Samsung or a 3rd party warranty provider (e.g., the retailer) in the event you need to take advantage of the warranty - that could mean shipping, waiting, and dealing with a lot of unknowledgeable service reps. A carrier phone can just be taken to the carrier store, and often can be replaced on the spot if it's faulty.
  • You lose support for things like Wi-Fi calling, VoLTE, wideband voice, and some other carrier-specific features, potentially.
  • You'll be financing the entire cost of the phone yourself, though some retailers do offer credit options that are basically 12-month payment plans, sometimes with no interest.
  • Samsung Pay doesn't work, and may not ever.
  • These phones do not and will not ever work on Verizon or Sprint.

It depends on if you define the phone as the hardware, or the software. iPhone sells the most hardware from a single distributor (Apple). But people buy significantly more Android devices than iOS.

Not fair to just say iphone, since there are many iphones...6, 6s, 6s plus etc.

According to this article, the best selling phone in the US for 2015 is NOT an iphone.

Anyways what does this have to do with people spending too much money on a phone? Iphone (w/o contract) cost about as much relatively. So what is your point?

yeah and for getting essentially a computer's performance from maybe 2003-2004 ish in such a small and lightweight size with a "massive" screen I'd say it's certainly worth the price. That's if you actually would like and make heavy use out of a smartphone.

I think the only thing a smartphone can't do is video/photo edit at a "professional" level and do fully fledged games like Doom (2016).

My computer from 2003-2004 barely works. Similar to my GS5 at this point too. I love my Galaxy phones, but they're pricing me out of their product. It's just ludicrous to me that companies charge the same for a badass laptop and a cell phone.
