JB preorder s20ultra MYR4999=SGD1670
How to bring into SG without getting caught by customs?
Best to just declare and pay the 7% GST. Still cheaper than the RRP in Singapore.

Go to jb, buy, bring back, profit.
customs definitely won't care/check
But i guess days after release can find 16XX on carousel alr, so actually no much point buying Malaysia set

Korea set confirm snapdragon?
I would buy if i were you. Usually they are the first when got software updates.
Next android 11 version, korea set high likely will come first.

If buy from qoo10, better coz can use coupon offset
confirm snapdragon
thats why most of us were surprised Home country like Korea is not supporting its own chipset.

ya was also waiting to see if Qoo10 will have coupons for grab then can offset abit.

Saw all the 3 colours of s20 just now at Samsung shop. Seriously, none of them appeal to me.
Unlike last year's S10 where all the colours were nice and I couldn't decide which to get.
they already have sample units? which store?

for a light user, I can't discern the differences between SD and exynos
so it does not really justify to spend more on an export SD set

Think seeing the negative opinions here, I'll probably get S10 seeing the price drop..

Same here. For Samsung I don’t want to take risk to buy export set. My S7 edge and Note 5 got spoil before so I don’t want to take risk.

I only buy local set if Samsung

they are social media team with limited information one. contact their support about firmware bug until vomit blood.. keep asking me to factory reset.. gave up just live with the bug until change phone.. not samsung anymore..

People like me play game on smartphones wont like Exynos. Will lag. Tried and tested on my Fold and Note10+

Both run same game Fold smoother due to snapdragon. Some more Note10+ using Exynos chip equalivant to 855+ still lag. Sibei lousy

Note 10's Exynos 9825 was fab in 7mm and still lose until jialat. But it doesn't matter since it is pair with a crappy Mali GPU that stutters in games like Fortnite.

Single core performance almost same. Multi-core no match. Battery life as well.

the problem is the alternatives aren't much better, that is why sammy can be complacent

HW is half-dead because Android is banned on future devices

1+ is close to stock but has zero physical presence and only enthusiasts will get

Oppo has good camera but OS updates are notoriously lagging behind

XM is value for money but now MIUI 11 cannot remove ads completely unless root

Sony is close to stock but very minimal advertising and presence. Also, phones not aesthetically pleasing

Pixel is stock and with fast updates but hardware sometimes is a miss, like Pixel 4. And no SD slot
HTC and LG are dead in SG too.

Note 10+ exynos benchmark is good but still i think the lagness is due to the hardware architecture. even mobile signal is much worst on exynos

i believe even benchmark score lose to sd855
