The unlocked in USA are worthless because Samsung doesn't update them. Last year I got the Olympic edition and regretted getting it because super late updates. Still no nougat ...

Not too bad of a price at Best Buy.

Maybe not always but, Best Buy seams to always have the best prices. And they almost always give a gift card anywhere from $ 100 to $250

for those thinking they'll get updates faster you'll get them faster through a carrier. I have an unlocked S7 edge and Samsung does not update them yeah it got up dated to the March security patch a couple weeks ago but still on marshmallow. My Axon 7 has already been updated to 7.1.1

Overpriced if you ask me. At least Samsung has finally gone the universally unlocked route like Apple and Google has done.

Kabel and haydenb are right. I had an unlocked S7 Edge and Samsung still hasn't updated it to naugat. We paid the highest price yet received the least service. It will be a cold day in hell before I buy an unlocked from Samsung again.
