Potentially interesting deal for some! Read on
690GBP retail in UK


EDIT: Maybe I undersold myself below... Having done the math, this is the cheapest deal out there.
585 over a 24 month standard contract = 5.625/week device cost
If you add a low cost plan like virgin's 6GB 11quid/mo deal that's basically the lowest "high tier" plan with arguably the best phone - and you're not paying 45-50/month + a 100-200 up front fee

If you're interested in depreciation...
The phone will still be worth about 250 after 2 years, so you will have lost 335 in 2 years, or 3.22/week. That's the true cost of this owning phone, assuming you sell at the two year mark.

Also added orchid grey colour at 4pm Monday!

-------------------OP below--------------------
You can buy it from Amazon Italy today for
Silver: 693.31EUR (checkout price) / 585GBP (converted) delivered
*** THANKS TO user RAMNEE for pointing out silver is cheaper! Good spot
Black: 701EUR (checkout price) / 590GBP (converted) delivered
Shows as 707EUR until added to cart
Stocked, sold, and shipped by Amazon EU SARL

the only potential caveat is about the 2 year warranty which is guaranteed by EU law (link) but since the UK has about 23 months left in the EU you effectively get a 23 month warranty instead of 24. Buy it using your credit card for added protection!

No cashback worries, no very.co.uk credit account workaround - this is an "at the register" price

Will help some! I don't care about cold votes!

This is a great deal but Samsung & Apple are just having a laugh at the amount they charge for these devices, good find anyway!

I'll stick with my £722 amazon UK pre order!


Because it also has the region lock like all EU phones sold by samsung?
Do you hate money that much?

****, Euro 799 for S8 plus? seriously?
that's easy 100 pounds saved.
Edited by: "chenzz" 28th Apr 2017
I wonder if you could use Revolut card for this. Some have been able to use it on Amazon, while others had no luck.

I assume the only difference is the charging brick being a 2 pin?
Also do the AKG earphones come with this?

my mistake, I meant 799.
Not interested in the phone but heat for the deal.
Perhaps a silly question but what differences do we think this phone will have as opposed to buying within the UK?

It's still the international version
It will ask you which language you want to use on setup - select English
otherwise it will have 2 pin EU plug instead of 3 pin UK plug
Warranty is effectively through Amazon.it (Amazon EU Sarl) as they're the seller, and are required to ensure your warranty for 24 months (or 23 months, since the UK leaves March 29 2019)
I was looking for a deal and bumped into this. Thanks great deal
Was looking at this earlier on amazon.it glad someone posted the deal as it's given me the confidence to push the button :-)
You *might* be OK with Samsung's region lock on this device, or might not be. According to Clove at clove.co.uk/sam…-s8 ...

Since September 2013, Samsung has implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only has access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.

For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.

Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.

Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.


If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.

**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.


IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.

Undocumented benefit is the Italian version comes with an additional oleophobic treatment.

Decent price for a pricey device.

RE Revolut, still better with a CC for warranty purposes.
do you need to register to buy or login with your uk id ?

Since September 2013, are you sure? I have had no such problems with the non-EU Galaxy s7 that I bought new from Ebay last year. It is an African region model that came new and sealed and works perfectly - have used a couple of UK sims with it and no issue with any 'lock'. Was I just lucky?

I don't know, perhaps Samsung don't always region lock phones sold in Africa?
So close to pulling the trigger... but then remembered I hate Bixby
Phenomenal deal though... heat added.

What's he ever done to you? Seriously though don't let it put you off. I've been catching the Bixby button whilst turning the volume down since I got it last week and it does nag you a bit to activate him in the camera app. Other than that it's a decent phone. I upgraded from the S7 Edge and its been a bit of a pain getting used to the fingerprint sensor being on the back but that's balanced by unlocking things with your face and eyes. I got it from Very with 20% discount (surprised the code I got worked) and they sent it out early which was nice of them too!

I'm rocking the Pixel XL... just not sure I can get used to all that intrusion with Bixby in the camera and all over the shop... but the phone looks INCREDIBLE... its just a lot of cash for what might not be that much of a jump after the design wears off...IF it wears off...

I need an upgrade from nexus 5. Stuck between s7 edge and s8, I see you've had both. Should I go for the full upgrade or pocket the £200 difference?
