Smile buying Samsung phone from Korea

Hello,

i have a friend who is going to Korea, i am keen in Galaxy Note.
Has anyone bring in samsung phones from Korea? Is it cheaper?
Can it be used in singapore?
If yes, does it have English language?
And i guess it doesn't cover international warranty?

Can anyone advice me on the above?
Thank you so much

It's about the same price if you buy it in Seoul. No point.

Yup, i agree, Went Korea during Dec last year.. checked from their samsung shops.. Galaxy series are around the same price as Singapore... and i think most of their samsung phones are already made for LTE....

Besides the warranty is only local warranty.. so if your phone is spoilt, the warranty is useless in Singapore....

you have more support if you buy the international version, if you root etc, you have more options getting the international version. Unless you're gonna buy the pink LTE note that comes with ICS
