Samsung’s new region-locking sticker isn’t as scary as before, and actually explains what’s going on

Think back to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 last year, and you might remember a bit of hubbub surrounding supposedly “unlocked” devices in some countries coming with a so-called region-lock. The situation eventually turned out not to be quite so bad as was first feared, with devices being fully unlocked if they were “activated” with a SIM from within the approved region.

The situation with the Galaxy S5’s region lock is a bit different, and fortunately the sticker on the box fully explains what’s going on this time.
