Samsung Galaxy S7 SM-G930U Black Onyx Experience on AT&T

Bought it from the official Samsung USA website on black friday for $549.99. Got a Gear VR as well as a wireless charger free!

Bought a 2nd SM-G930UZKAXAA from B & H when the price hit $449 in early October 2017. Signed up for Samsung Pay and been getting rewards.

Phone has been delivered and is being used on the AT&T Network. The SM-G930UZKAXAA has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with integrated modem X12 LTE. The X12 LTE Modem supports LTE Band 1, Band 2, Band 3, Band 4, Band 5, Band 7, Band 8, Band 12, Band 17, Band 20, Band 25, Band 26, Band 28, Band 29, Band 30, Band 38, Band 39, Band 40 and Band 41. This list covers all the bands used by AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. SM-G930UZKAXAA works with all 4 American carriers.

The only advantage the SM-G930U has over the AT&T Galaxy S7 SM-G930A is that the SM-G930U has no bloatware. Of course, the SM-G930U comes unlocked too

Not a big fan of this case. The Caseology Envoy Series- Classic Rich Texture Leather- Leather Cherry Oak- Luxury Slim, Model number CO-GS7-ENV-CH seems much more stylish and elegant.

This phone is using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 2.15 GHz processor instead of the Samsung Exynos 8890 Octa processor used in SM-G930F model

Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is a Quad-Core processor whereas the Exynos 8890 is an 8-core processor.

Voice over LTE does not work on SM-G930U on the AT&T network. When any call is made, the AT&T network drops from LTE to H+, which is just AT&T 4G. Since VoLTE does not work, I highly doubt Carrier Aggregation works on AT&T network.
