Samsung posts a "Thank You" for all its fans


The second half of last year was not a good time for Samsung's reputation. It is the time when the Note 7 saga began – first with explosions, then with recalls, then with exploding devices that were re-released as "Safe". Ouch! Needless to say, Samsung was hard at work trying to recollect all of the Note 7 units that were out there in the wild all the while posting a new apology at least once a week.

Now that the Galaxy S8 has been successful and the Note 8 is said to have passed meticulous testing, the company would like to thank those that remained loyal to the brand, despite that hiccup last year. There are plenty of consumers that just got back to using a Galaxy S7 or S6, and tons more that waited for the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 with bated breath, instead of leaving Samsung products for a competitor.

Well, Sammy has now posted a "Thank You" video, with which it would like to show its appreciation. Well, technically, we saw the video at the Galaxy Note 8 unveiling event, but it's now live on YouTube, so you can check it out if you missed it before.

So, did you pre-order a Galaxy Note 8?

"Us a sign of our gratitude for your loyalty, we would like to screw you over by hiking up the prices of our phones".

Agreed. Price of smartphones should be decreasing. But here, its the opposite.

They're counting on their blind fanboys. Both Samsung and Apple know that they will outsell every other OEM because of their loyal fanbases. Look at OnePlus, once they had a fanbase that adores their phones, they increased the prices as well. Only struggling OEMs are doing the opposite, like LG for example.

yet samsung spends the most money in r and d out of all possibly all combined and have things like mst that others cant have or a spen that unrivalled by any other so yes price goes up plus they inventy new tech to give all phones and others ram tech and oled and many other things

OnePlus didn't just increase the cost. Their cost were increased due to using better hardware which costs them mor emoney. I can believe one post has gotten all you butthurt pricks talking about costs of a product. If its too expensive for you, or you don't like the cost, simply don't buy it until it comes down to what you feel if the price you want to pay. I'm not complaining about the cost. Yes its too high. And even though I have the cash, I'm not buying the phone. That's how you show an OEM when you don't like something. Talking about it here won't get you anywhere.

And it's our fault and no one else's. Apple and Samsung are over priced, I also can't blame either one, they are in business to make money. Somethings will always keep going up just like cars are always going up and not down. The more tech the higher the price.

Why exactly do you think their prices would be coming down, in all honesty? Like any other company, they exist to make money and this is a nonessential good. I would argue the issue may not necessarily be their prices, but wages being stagnant. At least here in the US.

I'm right there with you asking why ANYBODY would've thought prices on these things would go down as time passes. Looking at almost any other consumer product area, prices almost NEVER work that way. Cars in the 80s were less expensive than they are at present, despite there being more vehicles available AND more transportation methods being considered in a public setting in our modern setting. Computers (aside from the extremes of their early pricing) have seen negligible decreases in affordability aside from the low end market. The fact is, the ideology that as technology becomes wildly available, prices go down, is ultimately flawed. I'm actually surprised it took this long to start rising.

Well, it's not that technology doesn't become cheaper. As you noted, you have affordable items available for just about any product category you look at. It's just that there will always be an upper end of any given market, and people often focus on offerings in that range because they're typically more desirable. Outside of the bigger issue of cost-of-living versus how much companies are paying, it's a case of people not really living within their means or having financial discipline. Looking at what they want, versus asking what they actually need.

Imagine yourself in place of any company & then say that the price should be decreasing instead of increasing. The advanced technology is the higher the price will be.

When have you ever seen product prices decrease when they offer more technology? WHEN!!! Please give me a date and time when product liek electronics have gotten cheaper. Look how muich video game consoles and games cost now. They are 4 times or more what I paid for games back in the 80's and 90's Everyone's phone prices have gone up. Did you complain about them? Apple has been sticking you all with high prices for years. Have you complained? SO why now? DERP! TARD!

I bet if I bring this up in the future, you're going to pitch a fit just like when Samsung screwed you before.

True ...pricing the note 8 lower would have been a honest thank you from Samsung.. .in related news Paul K strikes again today.."ouch Paul?" Really?..What happened to you ? 12 months later and still having nightmares with the note 7 "fiasco" ? Need any support? IF we proclaim Apple as the true innovator and leader in the mobile industry will make you feel any better? "There is no cure being a member of the Apple Cult"

They are already a wealthy company. Buying this phone isn't gonna make them any more wealthy than they already are. They are trying to show gratitude for the fact as an outsider, they didn't lose any customers over the Note 7. At least they are a humble company. Koreans in general are very humble people. They could have just been pricks like Apple, and just sell you defective crap and don't apologize, like they didn't for the iPhone 4, iMacs, iPhone 6 and other products they have sold that were defective, software that they wrecked and wiped peoples data. You are such a TARD!

Humble company? Samsung's heir is behind bars by bribing. Where's the humility in that?

That news and your statement of being humble are contrasting.

Didn't preorder the note. Got the s8+ instead. For me it was the better deal. Hope all of those that do get it, enjoy the phone.

Good choice, S8+ crushes the Note 8 in terms of value for money.

Of course the sales were lagging, so of course you got a good deal on it. I'm waiting for the king of phones, the Pixel 2.

Being I also use my pixel I agree last year's device was great and I'm sure this upcoming rendition will be even better. In reference to the better deal I meant that I'm getting a similar experience for me at least and that's why I went with the cheaper option. In the past I barely ever used the spen. I don't buy phones because if popularity.
