Infinity display

 

Marvel at the big, beautiful infinity display on the 5.8” Samsung Galaxy S8 and 6.2” S8+. Each handset boasts Samsung’s highest resolution smartphone screens ever and with their stunning super AMOLED display, colours appear brighter, bolder and truly come alive.

I skipped on the S6 and S7 however I think I might have to venture back into it with an S8. Smiley Happy

Hmm just looked at the plans to go with the phone and I thought I was imagining things when I read 100GB. Now that’s what I call a decent amount of data. Think the hotspot would be working overtime with that amount. Looking forward to the review Lucy. Don’t forget the food pics. Smiley LOL

I know, how cool are the 100GB plans. You can read more about them here if you're interested. Smiley Wink And of course, every review comes with the obligatory selfie/food pic Smiley Tongue

Might have to borrow a few bucks from you to pay for the plan but a least the option is there for those heavy duty data junkies like myself.

I think the bigger question will be. What are you using your 100GB of data on @Yeldarb and @LucyS Smiley Happy

20 bucks more expensive than the Note 7 for pre ordered phones for the same plans ?

No thanks, wake me up when your prices come back to where they should be.

Hey @jrselwood - this is something that is offered in store and something you'd need to discuss at the point of sale. You can find more info on trade-in offers here. If you would like to take up this offer, you would need to contact our online sales support team and cancel your pre-order and go in store once phones are available.
