I'm going to be waiting in line for the S8+ (if I can hold it comfortably) but I had the Note 7 and having to give it up was way more devastating to me than the battery issue. I loved that phone, but time moves on and I won't bother with a lower battery power refurb

Anonymous, 29 Mar 2017Samsung recall Note 7, replace for user, but that replacement also blow up. That worries the g... moreThey didn't market though. Also it took them so long since more than 2 million devices were sold and many customers held onto it with some illusionary hope of getting s8 for free once it launched in exchange of note 7
I am going for Nokia. Nevermind the mid range specs.
Stock android with updates. That seal the deal.
This is called creating demand through perspective of short supply. Thats how the price hike will go unnoticed. Cant believe all the news sites are playing along.
Savor, 28 Mar 2017Just like expecting a blow up/grenade/bomb unpunny comments that infests these comment section... moreSamsung recall Note 7, replace for user, but that replacement also blow up. That worries the general public.
Plus it took them soo long to kill the remaining existing Note7.. (marketing a defective product for soo long)
Thats why it spawn so much hate and explosions in news. Samsung only care about "being the top, proud, without considering others or being humble abit", Sorry to say the same is also true about its fanboys.
They want us to buy immediately that is why they forecast "SHORTAGE." Nice try Samsung!
How much would you bet, that Samsung tomorrow is going to name there new phones the S8 and S8+ Dream one and Dream two?
I doubt that. Not enough they said. Then they sold millions of it in just a month. They sold soooo many up to the point how hard it is to recall them all back. They probably gonna delay it in some markets. Rushing chipset production is the last thing they need. You dont want customer complaining the chipset not performing good enough or overheating.
AnonD-628233, 28 Mar 2017Even after hogging all the SD835 chips, Samsung could not produce enough of them.PatheticThat is what you called Business
Sounds like what another company does every year.
"Whats that? You didn't pre order our phone? I guess you will have to wait till the end of December to get one."
hahahahhaa.. lousy 1980's marketing strategy. They have got to realize that most part of the world are smart now, 3rd world countries are getting very less for marketing tricks. Yeah, including the very very left outs. It would be funny, when nobody buys this stuff for a good 6 months to 1 year to teach them and the rest a lesson of pricing cellphone products. Its getting ridiculous. Apple is the mother of them all and followed by Samsung, Sony Etc. Unless they can do a drone trick perhaps, which means they can fly. nothing is worth more than Euro 699
