Not sure what an A7 is but the A5 is a good phone.
A7 is supposed to be the 5.7 inch screen version of the A5 with a larger battery but stores here don't seem to carry it. It's currently $534 on Amazon which probably seems a bit pricey. It would probably do really well if Canadian stores and carriers offered it

Rumored to be $1000 usd which would likely mean over $1200 outright in Canada although I wouldn't be surprised if they give a worse than straight up conversion rate so $1300 or more.
Damn, Note 7 was 1050 iirc. Hoping the price isn't too much higher...

Any idea if Samsung Canada will have the same promo as the US with free 256GB SD card, and choice of convertible wireless charger or 360 cam?

Usually early buyers of flagship phones get an accessory thrown in. A 360 cam would be cool. 256 MB or GB? If GB then it's a decent size memory card.
Motorola phone. Linux on 2xcomputers. Brew beer & wine @home.
Home service reseller internet + FPL + antenna with streaming on smart TV
Wireless 1 line w/ Virgin on QC plan, few lines w/ Koodo to get phones, couple FreedomPop SIM's for roaming

All the specs are already published. The last unknown is the price.

Looks really good, wondering what Pixel 2 will bring to the table.

So far i have two Samsung smartphones: S2 and currently using an S4. Although this phone looks tempting, I am going try another brand this time around. I am hoping the V30 blows this out of the water next week. If not then hopefully the Mate 10 would do just that and probably with a lower price tag too.
I post, you decide.

I was hoping for 256GB sd card as suggested in some you tube.

The question now is which route to go. Buy outright or via a contract? What do you think? Which is cheaper?

Here is the info regarding the launch.

Depends on monthly bill.
