On TCB is states £75 for "Samsung S8 & S8 Plus New Contracts and Upgrade Pre-Orders".

This is Sim Free so don't think it qualifies.
Any fire extinguisher included in this price or I have to order it separately

HEAT. Slick phone, just watched the launch!

Not bad!

No idea why this is cold at the moment though.
Why don't they have the Arctic Silver? I thought there were 5 colours...
And so it begins...
All these advances in technology and still a poor battery

There is, but some might be reserved for 'exclusives' i.e. the titanium silver S7(I think)

​this is built using 10nm manufacturing process than 14nm its predecessor...... definitely it should be more efficient meaning same battery size still lasts longer
Wife needs a new phone.... But £689....

Buy her a 3310
Far too much money for a phone. When did they become too expensive? I think anything over £300 is too much.

HEAT, such an opportune word for Samsung for devices

However they have increased the CPU/GPU workpower by 10-20%. So they save battery using 10nm, but likely some of that will be eaten up by the GPU/CPU changes.
The S8 has a headphone jack and will come bundled with a pair of Harman AKG headphones worth £90

2 things about this comment:

Would it be bundled with it, if it couldn't use it.

Which ones? It's all relative.

True, but it does generally draw more power. After all, companies do not double the GPU/CPU components due to the power drain on the battery (and heat sink issues). Chances are the battery will be very similar or 5-10% better than the S7. We will have to wait and see to be sure either way.
heat missed the live feed but heat anyway been waiting sooooooooo long for this and they managed to do away with the home key which was under debate.
571ppi, 5.8" screen. 3000mah battery... Let's have a snowball fight in here. Cold.

sick indeed missed the launch but im still all over this
Looks awesome! Shame I got another year left to upgrade
are all preorders eligible for free Gear VR ?
or not in UK ?
GPUs generally don't get used much for day to day tasks.... but graphics intensive gaming does draw more power though

TouchWiz = No purchase
In my experience with Samsung phones, the nifty sounding features they add in, like iris scanning, smart scroll, smart pause etc only work properly about 20% of the time - meaning they never get used. I'll never be fooled again.
Lovely hardware, no question - the best probably. Usually a lacklustre implementation - fingers crossed for this one.

3000mAh!!!

My Nexus 6p has 3450mAh and i struggle to get a full day use out of it!
the phone is sex on wheels not much extra performance which is a downer to me but ive just got to have it.
mentioned on here before that the finger print sensor was supposed to be where the home key is on s7 but it was rumoured that they couldnt sort it out in time.and thyve had to put it on the back.thats a right gutter but hey ho
as per trusted reviews samsung are saying that the battery will last all day forget the size thanks to the more efficient processor

Anyone know of anywhere to grab one of these with a student discount card maybe? Looking to buy sim free but sounds like cashback may not qualify.

i agree ben looks like cashback is a blank theres about a month until this hits the shops.im just going to sit back and see all the providers and phone sites grind as much and good deals as they can until i make my mind up.
by the way the apple post on here has a 150 pound discount and its freezing cold.apple will need to catch up or they will lose even more of the smartphone market.the samsung note fiasco is a distant memory
Rather get the LG G6.
They should have just left the fingerprint scanner out all together instead of fitting it in a garbage place.
Noticed on terms for free speaker says valid on orders from tomorrow! Beware if you are ordering tonight

Not really what you're referring to, but while the battery life per cycle might not be anything special, apparently it has a more advanced battery that will not degrade over time as much as their previous phones.
