Bernie, 23 Oct 2017This indicates that these devices are not selling well.Not what that shows.
Just a quick search for deals in uk In. The S8 on sale on Amazon for £527.99 Unlocked (save £161.01)
Plus there is a promotion where you can claim free VR Headset with controller RRP $119 although on sale at £104.01 Amazon UK.
That's a saving of $349.38 and I didn't even look very hard.
That's Samsung for ya. Smart people don't buy their crap on release
Ripple down effect through out world, by Christmas it would near 600$ I suppose. Very bad for initial customer who have spent 1045$ N8 945$ S8+. In future a lesson learnt, minimum 2 Qtr waiting is Must.
