CptPower, 18 Mar 2018Man nice to know you throw 700 out of window.
Thats the difference between manufacturing pri... moreAgreed to an extent, I always do trade-ins whenever possible so it's not 700$. I did had the slightlest thought of getting the mi6 when I looked for a new phone when the Huawei P9 I had did some problems. I had a tough time to decide between the S8 and Mi 6. but once I've realised the Mi 6 didn't have 3.5mm jack nor a MicroSD card. (which both I need.) I dropped the Mi 6 and opted for the S8.
Frankly though. I did hear rumors about the pro 7 of Meizu and nearly got that as well. as I really liked it's concept. of having a back screen I could manipulate as a developer. I knew I had to sacrifice the SD card so I prepared mentally. but the mediatek stuff dropped me from getting it. (I still want that device. Just with qualcomm or exynos chipset.)
summing stuff up Cap'n, I agree with you. there are so many alternatives I could get. but hey, you can't change the past, can you? ;D

My Moto X4 does the same tricks as any other Samsung phone and have a wide angle camera the only of 2 phones along with LG G6 with wide angle camera.
This is something that even a Samsung doesnt have.
And cost much less money.
Just for your information new S9 cost 320 dollars to make rougly 270 eur and the selling price is over 950 euros. S9 plus is even more pricey but to make one Samsung wont pay more than 343,25 dollars.
Supporting greedy company isnt what we want or?
Just for you most of the Samsung phones are made at Foxconn and try to guess how much assemblers there earn.
And now try to guess how much Samsung would like to pay to a TV Star for promo of their new devices.
Well i said everything hope u understand now.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 18 Mar 2018Niceforgot to mention. I referred to the LG G FLEX 2. (the flagship that competed against S6 in these days), not the original G flex. but thank you! ^^
p.s. by P9 I refer to the Huawei P9. one of my best phones I've ever held. (bought the L29. WHICH is 4/64 version)
xXENDER FREAKXx, 18 Mar 2018NiceThere is nothing nice to support a supergreedy company to be honest.

Thats the difference between manufacturing price and selling price in your local shop.
Would like to say a good job but this is not that case.
Just for your information Xiaomi MI6 cost around 220 to make and sells for 350. And offers same superB specs like Samsung flagship.

I definitely agree here! S845/X9810 with 6GB of ram and 128 Storage, 3000 mAh battery in a 4.7in body. and all the modern goodies in 16:9 and bezelless. I'll toss my S9 for the Alpha 2 if it happens~!

Man maybe you dont know but 244 is manufacturing price and 579 is selling price of a brand new. 58% most of that goes for their super expensive marketing because without it Samsung wont sell much i can gzuarantee that.
They are really expensive. And definitely not worth the price Samsung asking for.
Rayne , 18 Mar 2018 The galaxy s4 in My country came with the exynos processer which was a lot better. My country had both variants. (in fact. 4 variants.
the i9500 (exynos)
i9515 (S600+More advanced android version)
and i9506 (S800)

give your old daily driver (After being backed up and wiped) to get a decent discount on the device you want.
MY S9 was bought for the same price as a redmi note 4 due to that system (749-580= ~190$)
Samsung always brings the best hardware to the android world.
Best display, amazing camera tech, fastest processor available and more software features than any other phone.
I mean just look at the s9+ review . It's virtually perfect, maybe except for subjective matters.
Only problem is their starting price nowadays is insane and you have to wait at least half year if you want to get a more reasonable deal.

Galaxy S phones are overpriced phones, made to fool people, to think they are special owners of the very best. Samsung is a greedy company, like Nokia was, they care only about the 300% profit to make. I am happy with my chinese phone, bought with half the price of a galaxy s6, but with same performance and better battery :)

and SD800 for android tablet until LG G2 come, it might be because tablet sales didnt take off.
