Samsung Galaxy S8

So Samsung has previewed 2 teaser videos for the S8. They have also opened up pre-registration to be one of the first to find out what they are talking about.

 

Both teaser videos don't show the actual phone but gives you an idea of how thin the bezels are going to be.

 

I personally can't wait until it comes and will be pre-ordering it the very first day/chance I get. Personally I will be going fr the S8+ version.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8

We looking for a change and going for LG G6 but its not got wireless charging and the DAC over here.

 

So S8 would be next but so hesitant to go for anything other than a Pixel with updates as poor as they are.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8

Can't wait to get the new S8!

I'm going to buy direct from Samsung though, because EE don't bother to pass on the regular security updates to customers phones!

My EE S6 Edge still has the May 2016 security patch. 

Urgh!

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8

I am buying direct from Samsung as well. They do that pay monthly option (24 month contract) (via PayPal) and they pay the upgrade fee after the first year so you ould have the possiblility of upgrading to the S9 free of charge.

 

The last security update on my S6 Edge is October (Three Mobile, but leaving them next month)

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8

If you have links to the the payment options that be good to share.

 

It right to help people avoid EE but if they provided the service we want and deserve people wouldn't seek alternatives.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8

I am going via Samsung then getting a sim only contract (most likely with EE, as their service is far better than Three where I live and work)

Re: Samsung Galaxy S8

The payment options won't appear until the phone is up for pre-order. They did the exact same thing for the S7 when that came out

 

Link to Cart for Blue Coral S7 Edge

 

This shows you'd pay £28.66 a month with Samsung via PayPal.

 

They only offer the free upgrade deal for a short time when the phone initialy comes out.

Hi, 

 

As ever I will also get mine from Samsung but I will be waiting 1 month to ensure there are no issues like exploding batteries.
