Yet another price drop for Samsung Galaxy S8 on Amazon.it!

Now only 565.44 Euro with shipping, which comes down to 495ish pounds when using a 0% card (depending on rate I have seen this fluctuate today between 494 and 496 pounds). Note these are TiM network phones, but apparently the only branding is a little logo on the box. Might need to update firmware to UK version if you're looking for wifi calling. More info in comments here. Both in stock., so no waiting 2-3 weeks like previously.

Both in stock at time of posting. If you are bothered about this being TiM network, Silver can be had for 10 Euro more.

First time the S8 can be had for under 500 bones!! If that was your sweet spot, know that the time has come, mine is due for delivery 22.-24.06

Cheers!

Op says 465 euros

Typo, should read 565 euros

Thanks edited!

Note BRANDED PHONES ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE BRANDED FIRMWARE. Android updates will be pushed by TIM network rather than Samsung as with the unbranded/international variant. You may face update delays or region specific feature changes

A friend of mine crashed a new BMW M3 into a wall and did £10,000 of damage to the car.

BMW say its not covered under the warranty either. Ridiculous.

Go for unbranded silver (in my opinion)



I prefer the black one. Will flash official UK rom with odin, which doesn't void warranty. Problem sorted, voila

Amazon are pretty good with deliveries, ordered mine now and is scheduled for delivery 22-26 but I expect it sooner rather than later. I imagine it shouldnt take longer than 4-5 days

Glad to see my find is still encouraging HUKDers

Didn't see before... It's branded which comes with a potential mess of issues when it comes to android updates

I'd recommend unbranded / international variant
(Sorry op - still a good price for someone who's ok with having an Italian carrier branded phone)

To avoid with a network logo (TIM). It is sim free but the OS would be personalised with the TIM apps and internal logo on start up. cold for me

just received mine today. was in a flimsy packaging and inside was a Gillette razor blade.

great deal if the phone actually arrives and not stolen by workers.

worse battery than s7 edge

​you did better then me. First one was just an empty box. Amazon.it shipped a 2nd S8+ to me but I did open the empty package in front of the Amazon delivery driver so I had her as a witness. I recommend opening it in from of the amazon delivery driver or film the opening just in case.

​don't you have to unlock the boot loader to flash UK ROM? which will void your warranty?

Also check the specs are the same I.e. antenna bands. I'm tempted around this price.

My 1+1 is going strong but at this price I'll probably move away from 1+ in the future.

Will this work in UK

The OnePlus 5 better be less than 500 otherwise probably not worth bothering might as well get the S8!

​That's what I'm thinking.

Especially if the rumors are true and it's only an HD screen (will be using it occasionally for VR so at least a 2K screen would be nice).

worse battery than s7 edge confused



Because the base S8 is equivalent to the base S7 and both have the same size battery.
On the plus side the S8 has a more power efficient processor.

I have the S8+...one week old.. Dropped from about 18 inches onto an indoor hard surface... glass cracked even with case on... Same happened with S7 Edge... Not covered on warranty... Love the phone but never again

I don't think you need to unlock bootloader (according to xda forum.xda-developers.com/gal…172 ). Either way official room does not trip Knox so it does no void warranty

Good call, will bear that in mind when mine arrives! Cheers

Would appear Samsung repair centres in the UK do not stock some parts in these.

I tried using Revolut to order one yesterday and it doesn't seem to have worked - just sitting awaiting authorisation. Anyone had luck ordering from Amazon Italy with Revolut?

I topped up my account to have 566 euro to cover, but Amazon has taken 1 Euro to authorize the card. I didn't have enough balance and got payment declined. Amazon cs said the 1 euro would be refunded shortly, and the I can update to pay again. Perhaps it's same with yours?

I should have enough left to cover 1 Euro but just have a notification on Revolut showing a 0 Euro transaction for approval since yesterday afternoon. Will try their CS.

Cheers for the response.

I didnt realise you owned the rights to the Samsung Galaxy S8 from Amazon.it. On every post you blow your own, even when the link is different you claim to fame.

Really stupid questions from me!!!1)how do you translate the page into English? ? And 2) what do you mean by a 0% card and which ones are good???
