No resale value most of the time. So purchase in less price compare to local one. Os is modified for carrier requirements and extra apps added. Hard to recover data in case of data format. Extra apps sometimes make mess of life because you have to bypass them mostly. And finally hard ir impossible to root in some cases and root bios is available on chance.

t mobile, verizon, sprint, these are all just carriers like ufone, mobilink etc. theres no difference in the hardware of the phone, the software is mostly the same too apart from the bloatware of app that these carriers provide, remember that this bloatware cannot be deleted.

Hardware is also different. I use verizon s6 for a year. It was good but their were few problems as well.
nup been using these variants for more than 8 years! what kind of problems? sprint is the only one which causes issues with 4g, verizon requires you you to have a verizon sim for software updates, but tmobile is close to stock international version

The US based Samsung phones use Snapdragon processors meanwhile in Pakistan Samsung sells Exynos Processor variants. The difference is negligible but Exynos is faster than Snapdragon

Carrier based phones are risk of getting blocked by the carriers ... mostly phones are stolen or non custom paid .... also have less resale compared to the local ones ... try to buy local ones with out any logo ... before buying also make sure they are not rooted because people mostly install local softwares on them just showing that from system info as they are not carrier oriented

You can trace IMEI numbers of phones before buying to see if there are reported stolen or have a fishy history. Doing this also tells you the original model of the motherboard so you can tell if parts were swapped or a false skin like international ones were applied over a carrier one.

Since I'm a guy on a budget I've had my fair share of using carrier phones and mostly all of them had connectivity issues with my zong and mobilink sim. Sometimes it's during calls, failed text messages and what not. Also with these open box devices you have no idea how the previous owner handled the device or even if it's repaired. My advice would be save some money and get a box packed phone.
