Submission + - Samsung is region-locking all handsets manufactured since July 2013 (gigaom.com)

storkus writes: According to numerous sources, Samsung has been doing Hollyweird-style region locking on all its handsets manufactured since July 2013: it was first noticed on the Galaxy Note 3, but has since been discovered on other devices that are sufficiently new. There are now cracks available to (partially?) bypass it, but the big question is, "Why?" Samsung has partially back-tracked, but so far they have not given a real answer. Between the benchmark debacle, Galaxy Gear's poor reviews, and now this, will you be looking for something different this time around? (I know I will.)
