Deal: Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 drops to just $400 at Best Buy
Even though it's a rather old flagship, the Galaxy S8 is a great smartphone considering the price. After being priced a little above $700 at launch, the Galaxy S8 is now available for purchase via Samsung's online store for $500.

So, it's a $100 discount for each year since the phone was launched on the market. However, Best Buy is making the Galaxy S8 even more appealing by dropping the price to just $400, $100 off MSRP.

The phone comes unlocked, which means it will work with all major carriers in the US, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. Also, the smartphone is compatible with prepaid carriers like Cricket, Boost Mobile, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile, Total Wireless, Tracfone, Net10, and Mint.

Also, you won't have to activate the phone immediately after you buy it, so that's another plus. The Galaxy S8 will probably receive an Android 10 update, but that's likely to be the last major OS update the phone will get, so keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to buy it.

I paid $350 directly from Samsung a yr and a half ago. $400 for this phone is excessive.

$400 for a three year old Galaxy is a good deal to you? Seriously?

It's good deal to iFanatics that thinks 700$ is cheap.

I could see spending this much on an S9+ right now and maybe even an S9, but definitely not anything in the S8 series. This isn't even the Plus!

Got a Note 10 plus for 800 bucks, seems like a much better deal than this.
