The best seller phone has been topping the one grand price tag in certain countries for a few years now... Nothing new.

So, what if the rumors about the iPhone 8 being $1000 are true? Would you backtrack on what you said?

LOL just as I predicted, just a lame-ass reply that doesn't even answer my legitimate question. I'm sorry that you keep things here very personal :(

Really? But you didn't say that about the iPhone when it was saud to be costing $1100. Just be nice to just roll around in bigotry, like it a bath tub if warm water.

$674 for the best rated phone in the world. There's really no reason to buy an iPhone.

$650 for the phone with best sales in the world. There's really no reason to buy an S8.

Don't worry, tedkord isn't going to buy an S8/S8+, in fact he's unsure if he'll buy the Note 8, he's going to "wait and see". He's just doing his usual trolling.

Yes, saying I won't buy a phone sight unseen is trolling.You might be dumber now than you were yesterday. Whodathunk that was possible?

Best phone in the world is subjective, no need to be idiots fanboys.

You just proved you're an idiot for telling me I'm dickriding Sammy fanboys just because I said "best phone is subjective" You would be praising me if I sent that reply to tedkord LOL You are so predictable it is pitiful :(

Dude, STFU with the "laggy trash" already... We get it, you hate or can't afford a current Samsung flagship. You're always talking trash... Anyway Samsung is selling the midnight black S8+ for $639 on eBay. Bundle that with PayPal's 2 year, 0% APR promo, and you can pay $26.66 over two years. The S8+ is not laggy, it's faster than my OnePlus 3T...

I can't afford a $640 phone? ROFL Buddy, got some math for you to complete. Just bought a condo with a cash down payment equivalent to nearly 80 S8 smartphones.

And you think anyone is going to believe that. Well let's see then, I just bought a 5 million dollar condo with same cash down as you paid for your cheap condo. See we can all say that.

Well you believe everything darkidiot claims, so you can't give someone else the same consideration?? Also, congrats on your new condo.

Coming from the guy with possibly the least amount of credibility on this site, who's been caught in lies and with multiple accounts, your opinion means nothing,

$620 right now. Don't buy any android flagship in day of release cause price will drop after couple of month including Samsung.
