    Galaxy S7 are still for sale and according to Consumer Reports price remains between 5 and $600 depending on the model (7 Edge is worth more) so a large discount will not happen.
    Instead expect BOGO offers from carriers and probably more like $300 on a trade.

    Samsung only runs these special deals a couple of times a year.
    No activation charge like the current Verizon offer for used S7 which is $450 credit for trade, minus $30 activation fee and then you get a $150 gift card; the rest is in Verizon credits.

    Going with Samsung got us a direct credit of $800 on the new phones.
    Anyways the offer ended about 72 hours after it appeared.

    My thought exactly, though I usually purchase outright about 6 months after release instead of a year.

    I use my s8 with Bluetooth turned On to pair up to my Gear s3 frontier watch.

    Battery usage stats / screen on time is a subjective topic as we all have our phones set up differently, however I get approximately 3 days usage.

    I do power it down overnight.

    I top up as and when.

    I also prefer not to turn Off too many features just to drag out more juice.

    The best battery saving tip I received a long time ago was to turn off the battery % sign and just enjoy the phone.

    The s8 imo performs exemplary to my usage pattern and my wants and needs.

    S8 is hands down the best phone I've used (the note 8 is too big for my taste and the Pixel 2/XL I haven't had a chance to use)

    Camera is amazing, design is 2nd to none, battery usually gets me to 4Hours screen on time from 11am to around 7pm (it isn't great but it isn't horrible either)

    I always recommend this phone to anyone looking for a new smartphone
