    Hello guys, I've recently decided to buy a new Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, but after searching I see different versions, and very different prices.

    Could you please help me learn which is the DEFAULT and ORIGINAL version made by SAMSUNG, and what would the price be? I searched in google shopping, but I see prices from $250 to $800 which is wierd lol.

    I don't need to much space for it, 8GB or 16gb is more than enough.

    Any help, would be appriciated! Thankx!

    I'm from Europe, Macedonia.
    I tried google shopping, but as I told you, I'm confused from the price differences. I sure want it unlocked so I can use my local SIM.

    I think you confused Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini with the original one. I bought my S2 on ebay, here's a search for you, look for top rated sellers and buy from one who has very high positive feedback number and low to none negative feedback. But there are 2 things to keep in mind, the first is about guarantee, if something is defective then shipping back and forth will be expensive for you, the other thing is import duty and tax, they will be imposed on you and you have to figure a way out like faking the declaration on the parcel, talk to the seller. However this comes with a risk, if the parcel gets lost in transit then the shipping carrier might pay up to the declaration's value.

    Looks good but also weigh the total cost, item+shipping, there is a cheaper seller that could save you a bunch, look through the listing page I linked to. The item location is another factor to consider, you want your item asap, items from China can take up to 2 months until delivery. Don't forget to read through the fine prints, the description so you are aware of the rules of the seller.

    Good luck.

    I know the difference between the mini one mate, I considered buying the mini version first, but now I want the original one. Also, I was thinking to use FedEx so I get it faster and safer, what do you think?

    There are several services offered by shipping carriers, like normal shipping and expedited shipping. I really don't have them in head, just google for them. FedEx is good, mine was shipped by them.
