Well shit. I accidentally ordered the S8 normal cause for some reason the layout to pick the phones are S8, S8+, S8+,S8.

Made another order to get the S8+ and had to call in to cancel the first one. Guess I'll have to wait the 3-5 days for the refund.

Guaranteed within a week we'll here something about it "blowing up."

I figured Samsung will give us more with the Note 7 fiasco. Not even a trade-in bonus. :(

Anyone calculate the cheapest place to buy the phone outright, since all carriers are giving away the same preorder promo?

Both Telus and Koodo listed the Snapdragon version on their site

Koodo perhaps at $994 for the S8 outright?

Don't they usually force you to buy a plan with the phone?

Back when the Note 7 was announced, there was a lot of confusion as to which processor it would have. Take anything you see from carriers and retailers with a grain of salt until closer to the release date or an official word from Samsung.

wow this phone is pure unfiltered dope, but that price tag tho, might have to sell off one my S7's or see about getting an early HUP
i'm excited they threw in USB-C ,10nm chipset, & bt 5.0, there's currently no bt. 5.0 hardware yet.

Looks really nice but I think I will wait for the new Pixel. I currently have the S7 Edge and it's big enough the S8 is too big

Ya.. I love this phone but I'm going to wait for a deal. My Android Priv is working great since I factory reset it. Will have to do for now.
