Korean variants of Samsung and LG phones are always better.

Sony is also doing the same thing the Japanese version of the Xperia Z using better screen, infrared, and several other features.
I wonder why they give the best specs just to sell in their own countries.

losing to some foreign company on their home turf is not good for their image so thats why they make it even better i think.

I really like this phone, I can't wait to see the Galaxy Note III compare to this, which will be better, I don't know!

Expensive Wacom digitizer, S-Pen, faster bigger memory, faster NAND Flash, fresher OS, larger more efficient screen, much larger and removable battery, OIS Sony Exmor RS sensor, MicroSD slot, MHL 2.0. As always, the Note model will not only beat it's competition but it's un-house products as well. And if Sammy gets the new Exynos 5 Octa right, we'll have an absolute champ.

I would choose the removable battery. It's a must have for me.

Basically the only thing the international variant has is slightly slimmer and a bigger battery by default. The Korean variant has the SD card slot to actually USE a 60 FPS 1080P camera for more than a few hours, will have a bigger battery with a slightly bigger case as an option, and wireless charging as an option. If the Korean variant was in the US, I would pick it up for sure, but with it being the way it is, it's average.

idk what the guy is saying, but his commentary sounds are hilarious, with the singing and side noises. the woman unboxing the phone is kinda strange too as she handled the box and accessories a little rough.

PA, there IS an English version of this. Idk why that one isn't imbedded instead of this one. It's the same guy too.

Nice, home people should get more benefits.

The G2 had potential, but again cutting corners prevented an exciting model to be a hit,

It is unacceptable and frankly unforgivable for companies like LG and Samsung to restrict certain versions of a device to a specific region, in this case not giving customers a choice to take advantage of a storage expansion option as well as a replaceable battery!

So basically they're saving the good features for home and screwing over the rest of us?This is what you get for outsourcing.All these Asian countries pull this crap. I don't think any other country does this.
