In the US we rarely saw bonus offers until just recently, probably because like everywhere else we are starting to pay for our devices in full instead of through discounted contracts so OEMs are trying to get buyers with gifts to offset sticker shock. At least the cases are cheaper than the SD+Wireless Pad or the Gear Camera. I've seen some N8+VR bundles on eBay but I'm not sure if the Gear VR is actually discounted with it.
As far as Tizen goes, I think Samsung would really have to make it stand out because right now it just seems like the ugly stepchild of SailfishOS with little to separate it from the pack. Supposedly Microsoft wants to help it get .Net support but I have no idea if that is an actual game changer long-term. The fact that they keep putting it on low spec devices like watches and budget phones probably means it's not yet optimized enough either.
Some of the US unboxings I've seen come with freebies like the Wireless Chargers BUT unfortunately no free casing (Xiaomi included one with the Mi Mix because of the fragile ceramic body) or a Samsung VR gear.
But all that can be forgiven just seeing the handset!
AnonD-197784, 06 Sep 2017Unfortunately so! Samsung can't just up and leave Google's Android.Maybe one day Apple will merge with Samsung into a hellish mega corporation and then the iNote XXIV can run iGalaxyOS 34 and not Android 57.0.4 aka White Chocolate Gumdrop Sprinkle.

Even Samsung advertises the WIRED fast charging to charge 0 to full at "under "90 minutes".
Misinformation is a sin.

Samsung must create own os that can run every apps.

Can't wait to get the Note 8

Why would anybody want the single SIM model over the dual-SIM one, since the second slot can be optionally used for microSD? And even more: why is the single-SIM variant more expensive than the dual-SIM one?!

Thats what I use for my Note 5 and it charges less than an hour. I'm not even sure it's up to 50 minutes.
Stop posting against what you don't have or have not experienced. It makes you a nuisance.

Is that real?One has to be careful with those our "trusted" reviewers, most are paid ànd they shamefully talk in that direction
- case in point - this guy " Technicalities" did a review of the Microsoft Surface Book and rated it "Mistake" after a few weeks the same guy gets on camera and calls the same model (i5 to i7) his "Only Trusted" and "Ultimate" laptop.
Lots of viewers noticed it and he didn't even mind.
So my point is you never know their angle in their review. That's why I prefer regular users posting videos of their real life experiences or confirmed owners reviews on Amazon or here on gsmarena. Easier for me that way.

Battery stamina is the number one thing I look into, especially now everyone seems to be ok with sealed batteries. No one appreciates having to charge more often than the overnight daily charging.
