So far I am hearing only film ones work..while others say none work. Please confirm.
I thought I read the S10 comes with a pre-installed screen protector from Samsung, its on BestBuy Canada website

"Pre-Installed Screen Protector
Your new smartphone comes equipped with a screen protector designed uniquely for the Galaxy S10"

What's unique about it? Maybe Note10 will be better.

Not policing but I find it fascinating for someone to click on a link for deal they are not interested in to bash a company without any valid criticism that sells quality products that you are in no way obligated to buy.

Amazing that people are just taking it and eagerly looking forward to a $1400 phone that will get outdated within a year. This is obscene. Everyone should give Samsung a good lesson and refuse to buy it. It is much wiser to buy a flagship from 1-2 years ago and will perform 99% as good. Or a cheap Xiaomi or Motorola, that will actually respect your budget.

Where do you see this minimum $200 trade in credit? I still have my Nokia Windows phone haha.

Is it only at Samsung corporate stores we can do this? I'm not too far away from Eaton Centre.

Edit:
Just found it. So the credit is a refund on the same method of payment?

The credit is usually a credit card refund that's givne to you after a 3rd party that works wth samsung reviews your trade-in device. some people end up getting screwed over when the 3rd party says your device that should ahve given you 200$ has a slight scratch so they only give you like 50$. No way to refute it, too.

Thanks.

Just trade in a worthless phone then and be happy with the $200 extra credit?

6s at $125 is a joke.

Amazing that people are telling others what to do with their money.

Not everyone is on the same budget though. Some have more money to spend, some want the latest and greatest, some people don't like waiting and others have different priorities. For me, the camera has become super important because I like to travel; because of that, budget phones are off the table. For my older brother, he's just a Galaxy S loyalist on a two year renewal cycle. He can't wait for the new S10. He makes good money so that's not a huge issue for him.

For my younger brother, he's deep in the Apple ecosystem. However, he's a lot tighter with his money so getting the new Apple phone isn't an option for him so he's hunting for deals on the older models. And it's not like my younger brother makes way less money than my older brother, it's just that that is his nature.

I like how you took the price of the + model even though there are 3 new models.

Dunno what your definition of 'outdated' is considering the S8 lineup from 2 generations ago is still a more than capable phone.

Well actually budget phones are starting to have really, really good cameras. I'm thinking of the Redmi Note 7 in particular. The Pixel camera can be used with it for further improvement.



It's jarring to think that you can get 6 or 7 Redmi Note 7s for the price of a single S10.

I'm not trying to tell people what to do with their money, but I wonder if some people are not falling for the hype or marketing for features that ultimately they don't really need.

Let folks decide with their own wallet.

The S10 series brings ultra wide angle lenses which only LG phones featured. That's a big selling point for me who enjoys doing timelapses on road trips with a dash mount.

blah blah blah
Just because you're cheap doesn't mean others should be, too. If someone wants to drop $2000 on a phone, they will. Stop trying to convince people otherwise.
