Trade in any old phone at Wow Mobile and save another $100. That's $431 savings on a brand new top of the line phone. You just cancel out with Koodo and you're good.

Where else are you going to save that much on an S8?

i can confirm that the minimum trade in credit is $50 not $100. an old candy bar or flip phone will get $50. I was offered $75 for my LG G3 as a trade-in.

Do you have to be a new customer to get this deal or can it be added to your current account? Sorry, new to Koodo

That's off contract price, right? And is the phone unlocked or will I have to do that?

What's the difference between Exynos and the Snapdragon versions because at least with the S7, it was huge.

Phone is locked to Koodo but codes are ~15-20 dollars on eBay. You'd pay $200 up front for S8, cancel next day, then pay the $504 tab off.

AFAIK, I've always heard the Exynos chipsets Samsung puts in Canadian versions are more efficient and slightly faster than their Snapdragon variants. I haven't read up on the reviews much though for a good comparison.

NA version this year is the SD835 SOC. In day to day you'll probably notice little difference between this and the Exynos version. AnandTech did a comparison between the two versions and the 835 did very well. You can Google it. Just interpret some of their storage speed tests with caution as they compared a S8 with UFS 2.0 against one with UFS 2.1

In short, the SOC used is not as much as a deciding factor as it was last year.

the phone is NOT LOCKED to koodo. Samsung phones lock to the first sim that is placed in the phone. I got the S8 last time koodo offered this price, got $75 trade in for my v3 razr with wow mobile. Great deal, love the phone!!!

I thought the June deal was ~$629? Am I imagining that?
