"For example, Amazon and Best Buy will both sell you the unlocked Galaxy Note 8 for $574.99, a $150 or 21%  haircut off the original retail price". Really? The Note 8? You guys know something no one else knows?

They don't proof read their "blog posts". It's as if they don't have an editor to approve them before posting

This video will tell why Androids are discounted and have less resale value. Thought I posted this link before but PA don't like comments related to the article so they removed it.

I think the actual reason is that the Galaxy S8 does not sell very well. The reason ? Galaxy S7, which is actually more ergonomical (fingerprint sensor on the front) and the camera quality is very similar, better battery life at a much lower price. In Consumer Reports sales figures, Galaxy S7 is on 3rd place, while Galaxy S8 is on 4th place...

Agreed. No real reason to jump from S7 edge to S8 for me. Not too sure about these phone getting longer every generation either.

Even if they gave it for free to me, i would be glad to receive it and put in the trash. A s**tty low quality product with bloated and unsecure OS is really a mess. No wonder why samsung stores are almost empty as microsoft store.

Please note, Samsung phones are the only phones on which you can disable any software package (using Package Disabler) without rooting your phone (and making it insecure), a move that is fully reversible. With around 170-180 disabled packages (while not losing any functionality), I can get 48 hour battery life on my Galaxy A3 2017, and it is more fluid than stock Android. Similar story with my S7 Edge. And this is with Always-On Display enabled. Oh...and no other phone except LG flagships has Always-On Display, while Samsung has it even in its midrange phones.

In my small sample survey I would say they are selling well. Out of 20 +- a couple of people that I work with there are five S8's and two s8+'s. I have a Verizon S8 for work and a European S8 for my personal device. So far happy with both the Snapdragon and Exynos models. I can't beleive the amount of bloat Verizon loads up it has been a while since I had a carrier model.

Wait close to the S9 release you can get a good discount on this Note. These prices are getting a little crazy.
