If this is the real price of s10plus then I will not buy any Samsung phones anymore. Totally ridiculous pricing just like apple. Time to move on. Hello Xiaomi,Huawei,Oppo,LG,moto!
Hi Samsung,if the base price of S10+ is not US $850, I will not be buying anymore of your Samsung phones. Will look into LG,Google,Moto.
SinrOne, 13 Dec 2018"Getting faster performance?
Well, that doesn't cost money... its what happens with time in t... moreNo, you are being ignorant.
Take Nokia as an example. Their latest phones are much faster than their older phones.
Do the new phones cost more? No.
Did they make the processors? Nope.
Did they develop a specialised software? Hell No.
...so yes, performance comes for free!
It's the direct result of having a competitive market (ARM, Apple, Qualcomm, Samsung, Huawei, Intel, Nvidia, VIA, MediaTek, RockChip, AMLogic, Allwinner etc etc)
So bumping up prices and justifying it on "its a little faster" is anti-consumer. In this sector, its like your local Fruit Store raising their prices, and saying: Well, the fruit's a little more fresh than what is in your kitchen right now, even though you bought it last week from me, we're still doubling the price because "freshness".

IÂ’m not a fan of any company or software but for me ios is much better actually is better optimised. So if you put new batteries to galaxy s5 and iphone 5s you can see the difference iphone is getting latest update and running as new, but canÂ’t say the same for galaxy s5.
Getting cheaper? This is the complete opposite of Apple!

Samsung now has adaptive charging and their battery health tends to stay better for longer than a few competing brands. They also don't suffer the same slowdown issues as they have much more powerful chips and more RAM to accommodate.

But Samsung exclusivity kills marketing.
Noone wants to pay 50% extra for nothing than having the phone before anyone else.

For example in Bory Mall in capitol city of Bratislava

I gladly used it. Same offer was also in october without extra sd. I think we can expect simillar offer after xmas.
It is now secret, that real value of flagships is around 400e. Just for first months you are paying for exclusivity.
Check also Huawei Mate 10 Pro price on Heureka, after year price went to 1/2.
I think, the reason why samsung went so drasticaly down with price is new S10, which is significantly better. Even S10 lite will be better than regular S9. So they need to get rid of S9s ASAP.
austibor, 13 Dec 2018Hey mate, can you let me know where in Slovakia you can get brand new S9 for 449 euros?Right in the Samsung store.
For example in Bory Mall in capitol city of Bratislava
Borymall is large shopping centre on edge of the city on its outside part close to the highway to the czech republic.
And even at Heureka.sk which is the only site which will search all sellers over our country the price range is from 480 to 1022 per 64GB model. Searched 84 shops which have this phone on sale.
But the price of 449 i saw with my own eyes.
samsung .. s10 2019 ..mind the price..or no delight ..come on lets rock again ..please
Still belive customers with stupid mind will buy flagship expensive phone with minor inovation.we will see start from samsung s10 sales..belive me samsung if you still do something like this. We will see the results. Need change strategies
I hope the International version of the flat S10 gets a higher than 128GB. I would pay the premium for the physical size & flat screen to get 512GB or 1TB storage. I don't do cloud or streaming, local storage only. I consider my S7 with 32GB + 400GB SD to be woefully inadequate. However, I will not use a gargantuan phone to get the extra storage. Glad the big phones exist for those who like them, but I think it's lame that we're have no choice but to buy the physically largest model to get everything. I would pay the same for the flat 5.8" model as the Plus if I could get the upgraded camera & 1TB.
Neither the S10 Lite or S10 will legitimately be a flagship phone. Only the Plus model will offer the max storage, best cameras, probably RAM & 5G, as well.

Seems like Samsung didnÂ’t learn from Apple and itÂ’s poor sales of S9. We donÂ’t wanna pay 1000 Euro for a damn phone, that doesnÂ’t get even the latest updates after unboxing.
If people stop buying every single new version expensive trash, they must lower their devic s otherwise their devices stay in shelves forever.

Anonymous, 13 Dec 20183 years actually is max with Samsung then it slows downI disagree, My kids still rocking a few older samsungs. Galaxy SII, S5 and Note 4. The note 4 is always dead as that's his go to phone for watching paw patrol (all day long).
Aside from battery degradation (barely on all 3) they are plenty fast. I don't think the phones slow down, I think we get used to the speed and then every year a newer faster phone is released and after so many releases it seems like it's dying. Just my opinion.
Also, I want to apologize to any Huawei fans for an idiotic thought process (only about the reverse charging). I assumed (for some stupid reason) that you would place the device to be charged on the screen.... not sure what meds I was taking but yeah, stupid I know.
As for the rest of the phone, I still thinks it's garbage.
