After the Mobiles Direct offer of £533 including VR, this is the cheapest I have seen so far from a UK seller you can trust that has excellent customer service and offers free returns if needed.

This deal does not include VR but might be good for people who don't want the hassle of buying/returning from Amazon Germany or Italy from where you can buy this for around £500.

Prices available on other UK sellers

John Lewis is price matching £559

DebenhamsPlus £569

It's not often you hear the words "Ebuyer" and "excellent customer service" in the one sentence.

Nice to see a mobile that is on sale in the UK!

Excellent customer service? Free returns? Nope.

Of the few times I've begrudgingly used eBuyer, I've regretted it each and every time. Parcels going missing, products not fit for purpose, £40 restocking fee because they didn't explicitly state something they should have.

Bought a cheapo Android phone as a sat nav, and it developed a fault whereby you couldn't install any apps - the manufacturer referred me back to eBuyer, who said they couldn't do anything...

Their customer support is shoddy, and their aftersales even more so. I'd pay the extra tenner for piece of mind with Amazon...

Why the cold votes? Pricey for a phone but a good deal considering how much this usually goes for off contract.. Just waiting for the LG V30 myself

Available on Amazon for 550 with Amazon fulfilled though that is single sim.

This is not iPhone?

£540 + (£8 x 24) [my sim only deal] comes out to be £30.50 a month which seems OK I guess for an S8...

Actually, it is expensive for this phone as it is not a 'plus' model. No-one seems to have noticed that. It can be had for £500 or less from Eglobal Central.
It's cheap for any UK supplier
But the current Iphones are much more expensive

Had a look at one in JL last week. Nice phone but the one on display already had terrible screen burn and the location of the fingerprint sensor is just daft! Half the time you are just going to smudge the camera lens rather than unlock the phone. At least others, like the Pixel and LG, put it lower down in the middle so it is within easy reach without the chance of constantly smudging the camera lens.

I have one and the fingerprint sensor placement isn't an issue after a few hours using the phone, not at all.

Used the lgv30 at work the other day and the blue is superb.The overall phone is really nice and looks and feels the same as the S8.Camera was good but not as good as I was expecting especially zooming in on pics.Headphones are quite nice but don't feel like b&o quality should but the quad DAC in the LG sounds superb especially when I tried some flax files.Not a fan of LG phones usually but for me I would certainly be tempted and my advice to you is buy it but get the blue it's stunning.As for this deal best I've seen but black Friday awaits as I'm waiting for some decent note 8 deals.

Thanks for letting us know,apple will sleep better tonight knowing.Personally I wouldn't touch an overpriced iPhone with a 20ft barge pole and a hazmat suit

Why get this excellent flagship level product, when you could spend 2x as much for the Apple iPhone X?

The problem with S8 is the Wow factor for first week then it's down hill all the way, after 8 weeks it's Lag City USA.

Pure Android is good I agree, I use a pixel XL which I got for £400 , however there isn't a flagship Android one device.

Also the s8 and their previous flagships don't lag after even a couple years of use so not quite sure where you're coming from..

I've owned iPhones, OnePlus, Samsung now Pixel so I say that with a open mind.
You want a top quality all around phone you go for Samsung or Apple flagships, you want quality with slightly inferior camera but better software go with Pixel.

Hi
If Alphabet had used HTC for their Pixel 2XL rather than LG
theverge.com/201…nge then there would be no doubt Pixel 2XL would be smartphone of 2017, and set a new standard.
Why? Because of the OS
Pixel Head of operations must be kicking him/herself.

For you. Not right to just flat out call it ‘not an issue’ as I’ve had both sizes of S8 *and* a Note 8 and despite extensive use of all three (albeit more long-term use of the S8+) I *never* got used to the placement of the fingerprint scanner, which also never struck me as a particularly good scanner either.

In all three cases I ended up just giving up on the scanner and only using it occasionally for PayPal and other verification methods that allow it.

The method I found the most reliable was face unlock (as opposed to iris), although that wasn’t any more than about 70% reliable - it was just the least inconvenient for my use.

Everyone has a different experience with the S8 range and its fingerprint scanner location but I want to say that *for me* this year’s range is less convenient and...I dunno, ‘nice’ to use than last’s year’s S7 and S7 Edge because I don’t find any of the new biometric systems to be as simple and reliable on the go.

As objects this year’s Galaxy range are lovely though, and if you don’t find the fingerprint scanner an issue (as with the person I’m quoting here) then it’s also got one of the best displays available and has top end spec. I think this is a good price for that reason.

Don’t assume the fingerprint scanner is a non-issue though because it *might* be, unless I’m literally the only person on earth who has a problem with it. I ended up moving to a G6 as I just found it easier to use.

I own an LG G6 and even I wouldn’t recommend buying an LG for more than £350. They simply don’t hold their value, so unless you’re likely to keep it for a few years and don’t mind the initial cost, the resale value will be heartbreaking.

Another issue I have with LG is their tardy update strategy. My G6 is SIM free and is still on the July security patch. I imagine I’ll get Oreo in about 2045.

Agreed, however I'm referring to the last year Pixel XL, this years Pixel 2 XL is a absolute disaster and wouldn't recommend anyone buying it! Get yourself a note 8 instead.

I can vouch for the S8. I've been using the S8 for about a month and a half now and I can't say I've noticed any slowdowns. The newer versions of TouchWiz and significantly less bloated than the olden days and I've found that some of the added features actually pretty good. Heck, I wish that the one handed mode they added makes it way into the core OS (AOSP).

Note that in the past I've always heavily favoured stock android and refused to touch Samsung with a barge pole. Previous phones in order, Nexus 5x, Moto X (2nd gen), Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus S, HTC Hero, some symbian thing.

And on the comment about the Pixel phones. They are definitely flagship quality in my books and the camera is regularly praised as being the best when comparing to phones of the same generation. In fact the level of praise for the Pixel camera in most reviews is insanely positive, so it's definitely a contender if camera quality matters to you!

[Image] I tried calling apple people but they didn't pick up.


i still flat out refuse to spend £500 on a phone, i had a galaxy note 3 then an s6 now got a s7 and never spent over £400 ill bite at the S8 when i see it around the 400 mark... these £1000 iphones are just flat out ludicrous i'm sure they just thought in apple HQ "i know lets just charge double for this iphone x and see how many mugs still buy it"

i rarely want to spend a lot of money on a new phone, but i took the plunge and bought a s8, its a sexy looking, slick phone with its curves and superb screen resolution , but ive had nothing but trouble with it so far , the day i bought it , itried to put in my sim, i pressed the sim tray with the opening tool and it popped out , itried to pull it out but it seemed to be stuck inside the phone, as if it was caught on something, ipulled a little harder, i could feel the sim tray being strecthed, it came out eventually but half of the tray was broken inside the phone and i had the micro sd card part in my hand, sent to samsung for repair and came back within 3 days, that was quick...been using phone for a weeks and decided to add a large 128gb micro sd card kingston, the phone would not see the microsd card inserted, tried all the tricks as shown on various websites but the micro sd card failed to appear under the storage section of the phone, just the internal memory. Tried several other micro sd cards and the results were the same, the phone does not see the micro sd cards..now its going back to samsung, who hopefully will fix it. Next issue is trying to find a glass screen protector, virtually impossible to get one that sticks to the curves of the phone, and those that did somehow managed to adhere to the curves, the screen protectors made the phone very unresponsive, i have to press hard to get an app to work, the pull down menu from the home screen on the phone wouldnt work, had to press down hard and pull down for it to appear. I tried two diffrenet screen protectors glass from amazon at £9.99 for 2, after reading all the reviews, but honestly i think these reviews are made up and are false..still waiting for phone to come back from samsung and have ordered film protectors which provide some kind of protection but i still feel a phone made pf glass front and back should have better protection..i bought a spigen armoured case to put the phone in when it comes back..well thats my two pence worth..

Agree with what you say 100%.Only reason I haven't bought is because they are so late with software updates and patches.The hardware is nice but always a letdown.Good points you bring up

Agree with you I'm using an S8 plus now I got free with work and haven't noticed any issues with slow down.Battery isn't as good now but overall very satisfied with the S8 and regard it as the best all round phone on the market.

It's under £520 on Amazon
