Wouldn't an S8+ be a cheaper and better option? S8+ has bigger battery and only lacks the 2nd cam and a stylus.
As much as i dislike the price for this model £869, i will still buy it...in the UK we get a free DEX station which personally i have no need for so will just sell it...on ebay they are going for £80-£100 so anything in that region will bring the cost of the note down nicely and the sale of my S8+ will bring it down to a much more palatable figure to around £350. I can live with that
Words of Wisdom, 24 Aug 2017Not impressed by complaints about price. You can't expect to get the latest Ferrari for the p... moreBut Ferrari doesn't loose power after one or two years. Samsung doesn't remain snappy after 1 or 2 years.
Samarth N8 808 user, 24 Aug 2017I somehow have a feeling it won't be coming to India for some more time at least ... That's... moreWhats the point of Made in India if they are selling at higher cost than other countries. Samsung is just fooling us. I think same is going to be happen with Apple also. They will start assembling here but still prices will be higher than the other countries.
Pre-order starts Sept. 1, release on Sept. 23
And people were complaining the Sony XZ1 costs £599 lol!
Let’s see how much the price different between Note 8 and your favorite device. Yeah, maybe a lot. Cuz your chinese phone needs to be replaced every 3 months.
Again Samsung has started the Price WAR rather focusing on Spec war. Good Samsung. Go ahead. We are there for supporting you....!!!
Why the price of smartphone grows so fast recent years??
Samarth N8 808 user, 24 Aug 2017I somehow have a feeling it won't be coming to India for some more time at least ... That's... moreThe price is high no doubt but will be much higher in India because of the taxes,the government thinks it's a crime to enjoy luxury.The price will be around 80k atleast which translates to around $1250.
Hari, 24 Aug 2017Pixel is still better then this tv remote control in every aspectAnd no micro sd card. But I prefer tv remote over micro sd. And even headphone jack
In Portugal (Europe) the Note 8 it's 1019,00€
I somehow have a feeling it won't be coming to India for some more time at least ...
That's because, with total disregard to US or EU pricing, Samsung priced Galaxy S8+ at Indian Rs. 70,900. This is so hefty, its more than US$1000 directly converted, more than some Core i7 laptops & a few segments above all flagships from competition....
By this statement, Note 8 would be more expensive than probably some gaming laptops.... So, better than this kind of uphill pricing, maybe Samsung won't launch it at all for maybe 6 months or so for their reputation.
And in Romania it will be 1100 euros and after one year it will be just 700euros. Google pixel is still 1000euros. Nice.
Not impressed by complaints about price.
You can't expect to get the latest Ferrari for the price of a [insert whatever car you currently own]!
This mobile is chock full of features and will be up-dateable for a long time. If those complaining had been putting money aside over the past year or so, rather than complaining, they would be in my position of being able to afford the best now, not in 6 months, a year or two years.
I want the best NOW 😉!!
Would have pre-ordered just now, but the blue is not available in my country.
Say what we want, but many people will buy it. If people want to pay 2 grand for a phone, let them. It's their money, they can do whatever they please.
Remember, they are under no obligation to please us. It's not like they're affecting our lives in any discernible way.
This is way too much! We are not sheep's Samsung.
At least the expected price of $940 wasnt too far off. Not surprised. Most of their phone launching price always puts people off. Wait a few months suddenly the price tag is only $600-700. All early buyers will be like, "What the hell, Samsung! I just bought it for $1000 a few months ago".
