I went throug 5 dealer in Navi Mumbai...but did't get black onyx preorder...if I get this color from 12sep then why should I Prebook..?
Best to wait for a couple of months before buying, for the following reasons:
1) Nougat would be natively available, hence the background OS update feature would be enabled. For phones with Nougat natively installed (instead of updated from MM), this would also offer OS crash protection
2) Existing faults in the phone (such as S-pen click getting stuck, phone freezing randomly) would be fixed by Samsung
3) Prices would rationalize and stabilize
4) No queues!
5) For those looking for the bestest smartphone camera, comparison with iPhone 7 / 6SE would be available to make an informed decision
My Local dealer told me that there are 200000 pre-orders for the black. Had to settle for the silver as black is no longer avl for pre-order.
Just spoke to samsung customer service who confirmed that ordered placed till 23rd august will get the phone shipped on 2nd Sept the remaining will ship from 8th sept
