Thanks to the reddit and various deal sites, I have 6 different cases for my S8+ and I didn't spend more than $2 on all of them. I'm ready!

I'm thinking about switching over from iPhone 6 Plus for the AMOLED and Superior Camera. In regards to the screen what setting is generally best? Adaptive, Cinema, Photo or Basic? Cinema seems to be accurate for DCI-p3 color space, photo for adobe color space and basic for sRGB.

rather impressed by the battery life looking at that youtube video, 50% after 4 hours of mixed use is rather shockingly good.

And I say that as a nexus 6p owner who loves his battery life.

The actual release date is the 28th, so early orders should get it the 20th.

Dunno, Just got a mail form O2/DPD saying it would be delivered on the 18th but the bank holiday screwed up the pickup.

I have a note 4 and the touchscreen turned to crap now ( lots of scratches, etc) and I seriously want to buy a new phone

my only problem is that i'm wondering if I should wait for them to show off the new note 8 first or just get a S8+... what do you guys think? Are the power differences usually big enough to wait it out between the note and the galaxy series?

I'm angry that Best Buy initially showed/promised release date arrival, but now the order has been updated to April 25 ;p. Bait and switch.

Dammit Samsung. The website says order by 12:00 PM EDT on 4/17/17 to get it delivered by 4/20/17.

I ordered mine the day it was announced. Where the hell is my shipping information! Still says preordered!

I'm not sure if all Samsung departments workis way, but when I ordered my TV from them, it just said pre-ordered until it was outside my house haha. Once the product was delivered then I was given shipping information.

I had ordered the s8 and s8 flip cover from samsung only days apart but I get the sense that I'm gonna get the flip cover no sooner than next week. The tracking isn't even working for the flip cover right now.

Anyways, looking forward to playing with the gear vr in 2 days. I haven't tried anything vr so far. However lo-fi, should be fun for first few hours just for novelty alone.

The UPS page updated. Supposed to deliver tomorrow to my office. End of day according to them. The UPS guy usually shows up before that. Hope that's the case.

T-Mobile hopefully delivers.

I pre-ordered at the store. I even spoke to my cousin who is a AT&T employee but he won't budge (not that I expect him to, is his job on the line and I wouldn't ever try to hurt him like that at all).

My delivery of my S8+ arrived on Tuesday. I was able to easily transfer what I wanted out of my S5. The phone feels really nice so far, but I am afraid a little bit until the case I ordered arrives. I don't think I will go with a screen protector this time.

Finally received my tracking # and my phone's will arrive Thursday. Would've preferred today, but I suppose I'll live.

Of course the case I ordered arrived broken thanks to poor packaging and the lovely USPS.

Stupid question, but can anyone tell me what the shipping package weighs? I ordered it through AT&T without getting so much as a receipt, but I got a delivery notice from UPS about a 2lbs package arriving today and have no idea what else it could be.

Mine is still a couple of states away, still scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Looking forwards to getting home from work tomorrow night. It's a shame my Gear VR is usb micro so won't work with the S8 and I'll have to wait for the free one to ship but I think I'll manage.

UPS shows my package is 1.1 lbs.

Just woke up to see my tracking has been updated to delivery today! Can't wait!

Isn't the rumour that the Note 8 will also have a 4k display, 6GB of RAM, dual cameras (with 3x zoom)...and of course the S Pen.

I'm seriously considering the jump from iOS this year and hoping the Note delivers.
