    Yeah I plan to. Just not sure if i go via contract or sim free. I'm on all apple products right now but want a bigger screen certainly when the iphone 8 is rumoured to have only 5.1 usable screen.

    the £779 is cheaper than i expected

    I ordered the black + direct from Samsung. I learnt my lesson from last year and have ordered the stand case/cover separately as that delayed my S7 edge by about 3 weeks.

    Anyone physically seen one yet? I'm going to take a look in the local currys/carphone this weekend.

    This is what I'm worried about, my phone getting delayed because I have ordered a case with the phone... I do hope this is not the case... excuse the pun.

    So I had a look at the S8 and the + today, both very nice. One major difference is the curve of the screen, compared to the s7e it's almost unnoticeable. I was happily surprised by that. Even with video playback it looks a lot better through the curved sides than the s7e.

    Size wise I'm happy with the + version after seeing it in person, feels very nice to hold and I'm pretty sure the fingerprint sensor will be ok once I've adjusted to it now that I've had a chance to physically try it. It's basically where the flash is on the s7e.

    They had a black and a grey one, the grey is almost purple, very interesting colour but I'm happy with black.

    The phones i saw had about 18gb used space already but they were in store demo mode with quite a few apps/videos/pictures.

    If anyone wants to take a look I think they're in most carphone or currys stores.

    Yeah, i saw the release date said 28th and instantly decided against it. Hopefully it will be different and they have stock to send out early too.

    I ordered both on the Samsung Upgrade programme. I already have a s7 edge on the upgrade programme so will be sending that back for my s8+. I have also ordered the s8 to replace my s7 which I will sell for about £213. So I will see which one comes first or whether I get them both on the same day.

    Does anyone know if all S8 orders ship with GearVR, Google seems to indicate they may , however see no mention of this on any preorder sites (UK), only the speaker thing through a few retailers.

    I have ordered through Samsung direct, so guessing will find out in a few weeks....

    I doubt it because it doesn't say it on the order page or the email which is disappointing because I would have happily paid the extra 99 £/$ for the over ear headphones and the 256gb sd card that's offered in America. Kinda seems like we've been left out.
    The only extra carphone is offering is the speaker.

    I've pre-ordered the black through Samsung. I did have my note 7 direct through Samsung and overall was pleased with how they handled my personal case. So I'm extremely excited to get my S8+. My s7 edge just never lived up to the note 7. I'll keep it as a spare probably.

    Hmm, i woke up this morning and found out the money I had ready to go out in my pending transactions for the phone had disappeared from my account... anyone else had this happen?

    I went with the upgrade program and my deposit/first payment was processed the next day. I just assumed that was normal because it's a monthly contract.

    Same, I would guess that it'll change when they start getting them ready to ship so probably 18/19th

    anybody ordered with EE? give away 64GB SD card but think sim free is best option

    I just checked the status of my order and still says pre-order now on the phone but with my LED case it says expected 15 days... I do hope I don't have to wait 15 days for my phone too or I will be peeved.

    I have the same message on my clear view case order, getting pre order now for my phone order and the clear plastic case still. Hopefully the cases will come in at the same time as the phonesand all will get sent out together

    I've pre-ordered my s8+ from Sky Mobile. My wife works for Sky so get an extra discount. They come unlocked too so I'll put my current Three sim in it and give the Sky sim to my son. Added bonus is Sky release them a week ahead of general release which I think is the 28th here? So should get it on the 21st.

    I pre ordered the S8 from Samsung site using the Upgrade programme. I did this with the S7 last year. Last year on Samsung.com/uk they were giving away the VR headset. This year we get nuffink! I've barely used the headset anyhow and it's not worth selling so will keep it and give it to the kids. Deposit was taken the next day. Currently no progress on my order. All it says is "not processed"! Gah!! Also I'm wondering with the 8 days before everyone else thing, can we expect delivery on the 20th April or the 21st? I need to book in my working from home day so not sure if I'm booking Thursday or Friday.
