Brand-new Samsung Galaxy S8 drops to $500, grab it here!

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ still hold up well despite being a year old now. In fact, they look very, very similar to the latest Galaxy S9 duo, with the Infinity Displays, thin bezels, curvy sides, and all the shiny glass you can want on a phone. Well, there are some differences in the internals, and the Galaxy S8+ does not have a dual camera like the S9+, but rest assured that the 2017 flagships are still powerful enough, and do have great cameras still.

For some unknown reason, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ have dropped in price on Amazon — you can now have them for $499.99 and $589.99 respectively. Usually, the Galaxy S8 hovers around the $600 mark, while the S8+ sits around $700.

international model sucks. Snapdragon 835 is not much slower than exynos 8895 and you can't use Samsung pay which gives you points back to redeem gift cards or visa cards, etc, or cash back. Since I had my S8 I claimed like 9 20 dollar visa cards already. Samsung pay for everything. Only on US versions

Also, if you buy international S8, they will denied repair services even if you offer to pay out if warranty prices. You may have to contact Samsung of whatever country and pay like 30 dollars just to mail your device out of the country for repair. I had this issue with before.

Still better than carrier's prices. Only big improvement i love on the S9 is the Audio quality, but this is a great phone at a great price.

Not sure what you mean. Most carrier phones are unlocked nowadays, as long as the phone is paid off. But if you mean who buys phones from carriers..? Plenty of people? lol thats why all the phone carriers are still multi million dollar companies? I was saying if you got it from verizon, for example, it still retails at like $696

a lot of people do. Best insurance cones from carriers. Lost and theft coverage. Ability to finance, not everyone can afford a handset straight out. And they are usually unlock if you buy straight out or finish your financing. Also I specifically buy carrier bloated devices considering they have features some other carriers don't. I'm actually a TMo fan, back then you could only get wifi calling on TMo phones, only rece tly did other carriers finally have such a feature. And yeah, you can root and stuff, but I'm not about installing roms and modifying system files for my features. I stick with TMo versions. And with TMo jump on demand, I can trade in my phone once a month. Since my Note 8 is on j.O.D., I can trade it in for the Note 9 with out worry about putting any money down in 2 or 3 months from now.

S9 prices are lower than s8's launch and usually go on sale also. You can find used S9s around this price. S9 os actually 30 percent faster which is a lot and has significantly battery optimization. And the S9+ has 6GB of rams, so consider them an actual upgrade.
