Deal: Unlocked dual SIM Samsung Galaxy S8+ drops down to $585 on eBay

The Galaxy S8+ will not remain Samsung's latest flagship for too long now since the South Korean company is already working on the new Galaxy S9, which is expected to go official in February.
Until then, there will be plenty of opportunities to score a good deal on the Galaxy S8+, and even after Samsung introduces the Galaxy S9 next year.
One of the more recent Galaxy S8+ deals is now up and running on eBay. It concerns the unlocked, dual-SIM version of the flagship, which is now available for purchase for $634 outright. However, if you apply the code PSHOPEARLY at checkout, you'll be getting a $50 discount on the smartphone.
The smartphone is shipped worldwide and comes from Taiwan, but expedited shipping is free. There's one more thing customers need to consider before making a purchase, even though it comes unlocked, the dual SIM Galaxy S8+ will only work with GSM carriers in the United States (so, no Sprint and Verizon).
- Display 6.2" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2450 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3500 mAh(24h 3G talk time)

It's almost half the price of iPhone X. We all safely agree on one thing now, this year's Samsung flagship didn't sell well??!! LOL The way dealers trying to push out the phone and get rig of it shows how well S8/S8+ did since April this year. It's only 7 months people. Roughly half of the year.

I bought an unlocked 8+ directly from Samsung a few months ago and I can have it on any carrier. I'm on Sprint if that tells you anything. Are there different types of unlocked and why in the world wouldn't you want to own a phone that will work on any carrier?

No, most people just don't know what they're talking about. There are 2 main types of 2G/3G connectivity, at least in the US. CDMA is used by Verizon and Sprint, while GSM is used by T-Mobile and AT&T. However, those technologies are totally different from 4G LTE. LTE is more or less "universal", for example if you buy a Galaxy S8 through T-Mobile, you can unlock it and it will operate on Verizon's 4G LTE network (assuming it has the necessary LTE frequencies), but it cannot fall back to 3G or 2G if necessary because Verizon uses CDMA and T-Mobile uses GSM. This was not the case before LTE. If you bought a CDMA phone, you could only use it on CDMA, and if you bought a GSM phone, you could only use it on GSM (essentially if you bought a Verizon phone you were stuck with Verizon or vice-versa). Most people are living in the past and don't realize that LTE is pretty much the same between all the US carriers, except they use different frequencies (which I won't get into. Regardless, the S8 has all the necessary frequencies). It's safe to say that your S8+ will work on any US carrier, for the time being, but it will not work on Sprint or Verizon's 3G/2G networks.
