Now even cheaper than previous.

£523.38 if you use Amazons own exchange rate or £503 using a fee free card .

Black version but there is a 2-5 week wait.

UPDATE: This phone is unlocked to all networks.

Thank you for contacting Amazon.it I'm Jessica and it's a pleasure for me to assist you.

I checked the item "Samsung G950 Galaxy S8 Smartphone, Memoria Interna da 64 GB, Marchio TIM, Nero [Italia]" and am happy to confirm that is unlocked.

You can use it with all telephone operators.

My old post was £518 or £538.75 with Amazons own rate but its expired , its now even cheaper so had to post it again as people missed out last time.
Also , if you sign up for a Halifax Clarity you get £20 cash back on a foreign transaction making this deal £483 but you might run the risk of missing the deal.The last deal lasted about 5 days

Getting cheaper all the time. Wouldn't pay this amount myself for a phone but have some heat for the price

Would a Revolut card work?

I believe so but would prefer confirmation from another member who uses it as I use a Halifax Clarity.

What about warranty, how does it work if you have problems ?

You can return it to Amazon.it who will refund the return postage or contact Samsung.

People who have gotten theirs - how long did it take?

6 week delivery... I rather pay a bit more and get one on ebay which is guaranteed to be unlocked, comes in 1 day, and has a uk warranty.

This is unlocked as confirmed by Amazon and HUKD members. It comes with warranty so can be returned to Amazon.it who will also refund the postage or you can contact Samsung. Most would rather go with Amazon than ebay.

Amazon dont have a policy for this but you can always ask as it hasnt been delivered yet. Open chat , they can reply in English.

Can someone please explain how exchange rate works with other credit cards please? Is there anyway to check exactly how much I will end up paying before making the final payment? Thanks

I have a Barclaycard Platinum travel card, would I be able to use it to buy this?

You need to check your own credit card for details as they vary slightly. On average a standard credit card will charge 3% and maybe a nominal fee of about £1.50 .You can look online to get Visa/Mastercard exchange rates for today. I always used Amazons own rate before owning a fee free card, a lot of people last week reported that Amazon was indeed cheaper than there own standard credit card.

You can use any credit card, its just upto you if you choose to pay in euro and use your cards own rate or choose to pay in £ and use Amazons rate which is currently £523.38

I think they charge a fee of around 2.99% of the total purchase price. Plus they use their exchange rate, sometimes can be better than Amazon's​ rate.

Waiting for price to drop till £403 next month

Heat from me, but I'm still waiting for the plus version to go on sale. Hopefully it will be soon or else Note 8 will be out by then.

RhinoPaul,

Have you received yours yet?

kind of tempting, but hesitating to part with 500 quid, my current Nexus 5X cost 125 and S6 before 260. all thanks to HUKD.
Also don't feel they upgraded the camera enough to warrant that money, it's the same thing as S7.

I'm not a personal fan of it and am leaning towards the Sony XZ Plus.

Ordered mine on 28/05 with a 2-5 weeks estimated delivery. The phone arrived earlier today, so exactly a week from the order date.

Has anyone successfully flashed different firmware on it yet to change the CSC? I've looked at the required steps on XDA but they look more complex than I would have normally expexted.

It's showing as €579 for me which works out at £507.22 on Mastercard website. Is there a way to get it cheaper?

I've been looking at the Xperia XZ Premium myself. Mobiles.co.uk has a deal for £27/m + £110 upfront (£758 total) on a 6GB plan with O2, if you don't mind a 24 month contract. I think that's the cheapest reasonable deal, plus potential £26.25 cashback from TCB.

Hope that helps, thank you for posting the deals.

The total will come up to around 595€ when you check out. Just make sure to use a fee free credit card and choose not to have Amazon do the conversion for you, as they overcharge.

The total is €575.28 delivered .For some reason Amazon.it is usually cheaper at checkout then the actual stated price of the phone.

Yes. Sorry about that, I paid 595€ but the new price should be 575€ which comes to just over £500 with a purchase fee free card.

I have gotten a response from Amazon confirming they do not refund the price difference, but you can place another order and refuse the delivery to get the full refund on the current order, if you wish.

Unfortunately someone has already signed for my delivery so that's not an option lol.

Does it matter if you don't change the CSC? What are the cons of keeping it as it is? I'd rather not have to resort to flashing new firmware, especially as it may void the warranty and potentially brick the phone.

I ordered this when it was up for £525 before. Paid with Revolut no problem. Phone came in about 2 weeks as it was out of stock at the time.

Had a wee bit of a problem in that the phone was delivered but I didn't sign for it. Contacted Amazon who sent another one out FOC. Turned out it was delivered to the office next door and they brought it over for me a few days after. I contacted Amazon to return one of them but they told me there's no need to return it and to keep it. Lol ended up paying £525 for 2 Galaxy S8s

Also phone is perfect. No need to flash it since it's basically the same as buying from the UK

Are you sure? There must be some reason why multiple people have posted trying to flash UK firmware?

Yes, it was delivered at 4:22. I'm not sure which courier company delivered it as I wasn't at home to take the delivery, but according to Amazon it was Amazon Logistics. Despatched on 01/06 from Italy, arrived on 03/06 in Surrey depot and got delivered earlier today. They notified me of the delivery date a few days in advance.

Cheers for the reply mate. My order is in. I ordered when the previous deal was posted last week.. i cancelled at the end of the day as i wasnt sure whether the Tim branded one was locked or not. Glad to hear yours was'nt locked.

Hopefully, I`ll have a phone in about a weeks time too.

Thanks to the OP for posting this! heat added!

Main reason would be to get VoLTE and WiFi calling on your supported network.

Nope. Was just a sim free Samsung box for me. Phone is completely unbranded Only thing is that it came with a euro charger but a cheap adapter from the pound shop sorted that "problem" out
