I have just bought a surprisingly-cheap refurbished Samsung S10+ to (eventually) replace my elderly S7.
I have not yet tried to connect it to my Samsung/Google accounts.
The S10+ is running Android 12.
Settings > About phone shows:
Phone number unknown Model name Galaxy S10+ Model number SM-G975F/DS Serial number ... IMEI (slot 1) ... IMEI (slot 2) ... United Arab Emirates TRA ID: ... TA: ...
The S7 has Android 8 and does not show a country on this setting page.
What is the significance of the country? How does it affect operation of the phone?
I am in UK. Should I be trying to change the display to say UK? Perhaps flash a local firmware?
I can provide information from
Software information, etc, if any of that will be relevant.
