^^^ Although I have to say that doesn't look quite right. The US version must support B17 as it's AT&T's main LTE band around here.

In any case, the main thing is I think that the international model is a worldwide GSM-only phone, not compatible with Sprint/Verizon/US Cellular/China Telecom CDMA networks. It appears to support all the US LTE bands, except AT&T B29/30 which just add a capacity layer to help with congestion in crowded markets. But most phones still don't support B29/30 and they work fine on AT&T's primary LTE bands, so that's no big deal unless you're a stickler for that sort of future proofing.

EDIT: Actually, check that. According to that chart linked above it looks like the international version might be missing Band 4 which is a bigger issue. Can anyone confirm?

the more bands you have the better your signal will be now and in the future. also less people on the newest bands which ensure the fastest speeds

Why is this getting downvoted? $570 looks like a good deal to me for the S7 Edge.

Straight talk uses ATT bands so it should work fine. The main difference is that the International one uses Samsung's own exynos processor while the US version uses the qualcomm snapdragon processor. There are lots of discussions about the differences but mainly your common user would never know the difference. I've had both and IMO the international one had better battery life and seemed a bit faster for day to day stuff. Samsung pay will NOT work. Also, LTE in europe is considered 4G. LTE is just marketing here. So there is a chance the phone would only say 4G while still obtaining LTE speeds. Mine was from Spain and said LTE. Here is the big one: Samsung WILL NOT WARRANTY YOUR PHONE!!! Nothing. They will have nothing to do with your phone. They will not work on it under any circumstance. You are on your own. There you go, does that help? All this being said, it is a very good deal. But if your wife doesn't really care about all the bells and whistles save some money and look at one of the new Moto G phones.

Can't speak about Verizon but Samsung pay will NOT work. I'm positive as I had an international one for a while.

According to GSMARENA It has the following bands:

LTE band 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 12(700), 13(700), 17(700), 18(800), 19(800), 20(800), 25(1900), 26(850), 28(700), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500) - G935F

I used the G930F (none edge version) on ATT and it worked fine with no issues.

I found this deal independently of the post, but it is the best deal so far, since the recent newegg flash deal expired. There's nothing better currently, and the thumbs down are likely from trolls.

I don't care about warranty and the international version's Exynos CPU is faster than the snapdragon US processor. I don't really care about samsung pay since I've never used apple pay on my iphone anyway. I'm ready for the jump to android after following the abysmal iphone 7 news lately.

Thumbs up from me
