There has been a price drop on Amazon Italy on the galaxy S8. It's now cheap enough to pay in pounds without having to have a 0% fee credit card so I thought it was worth creating a new deal.

Price in pounds is now only £541.65 (€614.63 at checkout)

Even cheaper if you pay in euros at £521.38 (using 0% few card to Revolut)

Added info:

- This is sold directly from Amazon Italy so the 24 month warranty will be honoured by them.

- Delivery is estimated at 2-4 weeks, however you are not charged the full amount until dispatch.

Update:

Black is now out of stock, however Orchid grey and silver are still available.

EUR 619,00 Everyone will have different exchange rate pound to euro

Samsung support is hilariously bad.

My mates s8 from Samsung direct had a purple line down the screen. They insisted on doing a remote support thing, where they connect to his phone. This is despite it clearly being a hardware fault. He had to take half a day off for that.

After that they arranged an exchange, courier never showed up.

Arranged another exchange, courier never showed up.

Multiple long phone calls of which some were cut off he finally gets someone half decent who says yes it can still be collected today (despite the courier having been for something else that day). He asks why he has no tracking or email regarding it, he's placed on hold, 1 minute later the tracking email comes through, it has just been booked for the next day.

Support deny all knowledge and say it was booked a week ago. They like to accuse you of lieing a lot.

10 days later my friend finally has a replacement s8 and no way of getting the literally day of his life back he spent chasing Samsung.

I personally have asked them how much to replace the battery on my s7 and have been cut off 3 times, I can't be bothered with them anymore.

Typo : Even cheaper if you pay in euros at £621.38 (using 0% few card to Revolut). Should say £521.38 ?

Yeah 2-4 week dispatch is a put off for me. Heat added anyway!

Note this is a reseller and its not Amazon: therefore, i hope Samsung honour any warranty claims.

If its faulty do Amazon get you to deal with Samsung. If so the warranty isn't worth anything.

S8+ also less than 600 if paying with 0%.

What are the differences in this version and the UK version? I know they are different model numbers but can't find any comparison.

Gutted it's gone in Nero - should wake up more early! What a scorching deal!! Still there for the other two colours though.

Thanks for sharing. Going to wait for a good retailer to sell them under 500 before I bite

would buy if Amazon UK did at this price

Balls, I paid £570 last week direct from Amazon.it, i wonder if they'll refund the difference..Worth a (Google Translated) email I suppose!

They wont refund the difference if you have already paid for one

Cancelled my previous order as it had not yet shipped and reordered at cheaper price, cheers op!

How do you get the pages translated to English?

use chrome

I am gonna wait for one plus 5 and then decide which one to go far.

500 bones for a fone? I am gonna spend that on food and wine and keep mine 3210.

They won't. I tried their dedicated English support team twice and their Italian chat (had to use Google translate) twice. They wouldn't budge at all.

Showing as 689 euros for me

You'll get a European 2 pin charger in the box, that's one diff for sure.

I guess black is out of stock, I can't find Amazon.it for Midnight black

If I use Revolut, can I just top it up without needing a card? Cheers

​I did on my mobile and although it translated the first page, when I changed seller and moved pages they all reverted back to Italian.

Hi I've just bought one and paid it directly with Halifax clarity.
When the payment is actually deducted from my card which rate would it be used?
Did I do the whole thing wrong?.... Any input would be greatly appreciated!

You'll get the master card rate on whichever day amazon take the payment in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the prompt reply!
How could I possibly fix the rate to today's rate as all others do? Using "Revolut“?

Bought the S8+ black May 2 arrived yesterday 12th as stated by amazon logistics.

Coming from a black S7 edge which I love.

First impressions after 12 hours:
- Screen gorgeous as expected, but too be honest s7 edge is great too. S7 edge and S8+ width is perfect.
- Fingerprint scanner whilst not as bad as the hype, the front one on the s7 edge is way better, you can unlock it before it comes out of your pocket;
- Bixby is just a pain in the backside, adds zero value, what a mess.
- I miss the double tap home button for camera, that was a sick feature! Haptic feedback feels cheap compared to iphone.
- Still lag (or at least not as fast as I like or expect), very similar speed to my S7e on 7.1. Never going to be as fast/smooth as iphone or pixel tho, ive resigned to that fact.

IMO the s8 is too narrow, the s8+ is too big, the s7 edge physical size is just the right balance between, screen ratio for media consumption on the commute and ability to whip out quickly (have it unlocked before it leaves your pocket) for one handed usage where needed.

If only they kept the s7 edge physical body size, infinity displayed/bezelizzed it, never even thought of Bixby BS,

Will either sell it off (better to give someone a discount from RRP then return to amazon italy) and wait for the Note 8 and give the S8 a shot (another 2-4 weeks wait lol), or get my s7 edge repaired (sigh downtime).

Samsung phones are terrible android is terrible support is the worst judging from the comments only redeeming factor is the OLED display and iPhone is getting it this year with Samsung supplying them there's absolutely no reason to buy a Samsung phone absolute trash.
