Instead of bundling stuff nobody wants, how about reducing the price of the phone.

Tmobile did reduce the Note8 price to $820, where have you been? Under a rock complaining to yourself for no reason no doubt.

What you mean by 'stuff nobody wants'??? I would like to have FOR FREE such camera for Gear VR. Imagine recording concerts or landscape trips , and watch it on VR. Only reason I don't wanna buy right now, is that I'm waiting for next generation VR . But free set is welcome.

I received mine the day my phone arrived. Samsung was giving you a discount up to 350.00 if you bought from them..... How much more off do you need. The Note 8 is the best phone I have owned so far.

I'll take the $229 discount on the phone opposed to the camera that I will never use... The only freebie that I have received that I would use more than a few random times is my LG Projector that I received with my G5. Nifty little sucker

I'm still waiting to get mine from Samsung from when I pre-ordered my Note 8 and got it on launch day.
