Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Reservation numbers / Questions!

Hello @JeromeM

Most likely trying to work with the carriers on trying to figure this out and the carriers not accepting the offer or something.

WiFi Calling and VOLTE works only on devices you by directly from Rogers. So a unlocked phone from Samsung won't work.

The exchange rate today is 1.25. The phone is selling in the USA for $ 929. In Canada, it's selling for $ 1299. Based on exchange alone, we should be paying +/- $ 1161.25. Clearly, we are being bent over the rail.

Hello @wpd1

What else is new. Believe me, working at Best Buy I can see how things get upped like that on pricing and even with the manufacturers too.

Hello @comcry

I am using the Automobileromance and Modern_black Themes on my S8+. Also I have a 4K wallpaper on my display.

They (any company really) are obviously going to hedge the exchange to their benefit, and it's not only exchange rates I'm sure there's other things to consider not just the cost of goods.

dont forget 250 bpts for FX conversion. 

 

plus higher per item storage and delivery costs - last year they only sold 40K units in canada for N7, compared to hundreds of thousands in US.

 

either way, it will suck if they offer us something like "buy $1500 TV and get free bluetooth speaker" when you DONT need a TV or the speaker 😉

Hello @kavkaz

Yeah that is true. We shall see what they actually offer. If the offer I, isn't any good I won't even bother.

At this point, it would have to be a spectacular offer otherwise, I'm out. They should offer a 4GB ram model. I'm sure they put 6 just to mask the fact that there was nothing else particularly different, other than the camera.

 

I remember when they announced there would be a Note 8, the president of Samsung said it would be " innovative". While good spec's, I don't see anything too innovative compared to the Note 7, let alone S8+.

Hello @wpd1

I have to agree. I made this point before it many others tried to claim there is more. As u said, compared to the 8+ the only difference is th RAM, dual camera and Spen. That's all. Sadly if they don't offer much, I won't be doing THIS. My s8+ is running perfectly fine.

I'm in line!

 

I think it said number 127 this morning when I reserved. I however cannot see anything about where I am in line right now or any sort of confirmation about my note 8.

 

I already signed up on the Samsung website for the free wireless charger and SD card too.

 

September 15th cannot arrive soon enough....
