    I'm going to go with Nope on preordering it or buying one. After what they have done update wise on carrier versions and then basically the finger to people that purchased even the unlocked model. they are pretty much dead to me. I don't care how advance their tech is as their customer service is atrocious. They have spit in my face long ago now everyone else may be starting to see the same from this company.

    I'm not going to preorder, but might pick one up if I see a ridiculous deal.

    I'm not buying one at all. Great phone, but I'm not a Sammy fan. Maybe if they introduced something ground breaking and added a HIFI DAC, I would give them a shot. I'm not the average consumer and I'm stuck on the idea of the built in DAC/Amp. Its brought the music I listen to to a whole new level and I can't fathom carrying around a separate amp.

    The LG V20 was released in 4th quarter 2016. If I were to buy anything this year I'd wait for V30.

    I want to, but not sure. If I do, it won't be through Best Buy, that's for sure.

    Agreed

    Wouldn't want to Pre-order and then we find out about screens melting, headphone jacks falling out or whatever haha. Rather wait a couple weeks and then scour the internet for daily deals and snag one then. Deals and specials are so awesome!

    I'm kinda leaning towards this as well. I'd rather buy it at the Tmobile store in case I have to return the device. I ordered mine hoping I'd get it early and we ended up only getting the Note 7 one day early and with the recall since it wasn't purchased in store, it was a lot more of a pain and everyone on here knows how it took months to get my refund straightened out. So I might wait a few weeks to see if any issues with it. I might have to order it still if no stores have it. I only have one in my county so if they're out of it I have to drive 30 miles for another store!!

    I'm not sure about preordering. I preordered the Note7 and that turned out to be a spectacular failure. I'm skeptical this time around.

    I'm excited for the S8 but I don't believe I will pre-order. I really need Android Auto to be confirmed working on it with my brand of car before I switch over.

    No here. More interested in waiting for the Note 8 if anything.

    Has there been any rumors of an enhanced audio experience coming in the S8?

    Definitely planning on it. In years past, if my upgrade date is within 30 days, I've been able to get a managers override on AT&T.

    My upgrade isn't unitl July 2017.

    Since I have an S7 (S6 insurance replacement), I could wait on the fall flagships or a black friday deal.

    Nope... Gonna wait at least a month to read the reviews from people that have been able to test it thoroughly on performance.

    But my main concern is battery. Not the Note 7 explosion type of concern. I'm concerned if they go a step backwards, a la S5 to S6, with terrible battery life.

    You have the "smaller" sized S8 that's as big as the S7 Edge with a bigger screen than the S7E with basically the same size battery used in the smaller S7 (3000 mah) when it took 3600 mah to power the S7E.

    Then you have the S8 Plus, which is of course bigger then last years S7E and near iPhone 7 Plus size with a bigger screen than last years S7E... but your rocking a smaller battery (3500 mah) than last years S7E (3600 mah).

    Maybe they are depending on 1080p mode like the Note 7 to save battery as well as the new more efficient 835... but the battery numbers compared to last years with the significant screen size increase on both phones... I have to read it to believe it. Then I'll weigh my options between S8, G6, S7E at top of my list.

    Funny - I do the exact same thing. I used to be one of those guys that'd go out and get the phone immediately. Wait in line, do whatever... first to have it kind of thing.

    Now (maybe I'm getting older) I tend to wait, see how things shake out, and make my decision from there.

    Granted, I still WANT to get out and go go go get the phone asap, I simply don't do it like I used to!
