Underwhelming due to having a smaller battery than S8+. The only difference is camera and SPEN. 6 GB of Ram will not really make any difference

Wow... a lot.
Well, since the S8+ is $1115 off contract, this isn't really that big of a surprise. I was expecting it to come in around the $1250 mark, so $1300 isn't too far above that.

Placed pre-order with Samsung. Can't let go of the public mobile $40 plan. This should be a significant upgrade from my Note 3.

Is your plan unlimited calling and data?

Currently on 70$ 10GB plan with Rogers (Quebec Wide) and it seems like the cheapest option is to buy outright (1325$).
Smart tab at 899$ + 12GB at 90$ (Canada Wide) is close second at 1379$.

Really sucks all the carriers have the same promo... I'd prefer a cheaper MSRP than the extra SD card and wireless charger...

I tried to talk to customer support online and apparently, they don't know the price for this device... lol

Pre-ordered it from Eastlink. I think Eastlink may actually have the best deal on this of any provider. It's $0 up front (I think everywhere else is a minimum of $500 up front) plus $48/month x 24 months = $1152 or essentially $150 less than buying it up front.

Also, I get 4 GB of monthly data and unlimited Canada calling for $45 essentially ($60 plan price less $15 discount to my cable/internet bill from having it from them too).
