why aren't the Samsung S7 prices dropping?

Found 19th May 2017
I have been waiting for the normal price drops as the S8 is out, but it's not happening.
The S7 is over a year old and contract prices are still high.
I have been watching Vodafone (as I like the coverage where I am) and their monthly prices for the S7 haven't dropped for the few months I have watched.

Should I just give up and go for something else?

Because some people are disappointed with S8 size / price and prefer to buy S7?
£27 a month (4gb of data and unlimited texts & minutes) for a samsung s7 edge is quite good no?

Who with?
market is getting clever and know people just wait for the release, there pushing you to think fudge it ill spend extra 100£ for the new one, all tactics
Personally don't got for the edge, if you crack it, the phone is a paper weight, cost 250£ to get screen replaced, worth more then the phone
The market isn't competitive. They don't drop the price of the old model any more so regardless of what you get you are paying through the nose for it.

This is why more and more people are buying mid range handsets or keeping their last flagship and going sim only.

Whole market is trying to play the Apple game.

​Thanks, but I'm not interested in the Edge version.
I noticed even buying second hand and getting a sim isn't working out any better.

Thanks for the reasonings (my phone isn't letting me 'like' the comments right now).
because the s8 is too expensive, it doesn't have to drop. o2 refresh can still get a refurbished one for around £300. It is also still a fantastic phone so quite desirable

you can't like question posts, only up and down vote an answer you think is the best/worst
demand for the s7 is still high.... prices for the s7 wont drop til the s9 comes around
Refurbished S6's are costing around £150-200, despite it being released two years ago...
Samsung is a bit like apple, old versions still retain their value.

I recently left Vodafone and they offered me some amazing retention deals on the S7 and S7 Edge. Give them a call saying you're leaving and then see what they say. I was offered the S7 Edge w/ 40GB data, unlimited texts and calls for £29pm + £60 upfront amongst other deals.

​Thanks. I spoke to them in Feb when I found a better deal, they just said that they couldn't match it and here is my PAC code.
