    my s8 still rocking hard, didnt even notice it is a almost 2 year old phone, still best screen and snapy

      “Best Screen” compares to which phones ?

        I think it’s just his opinion, don’t think he’s making a statement about its screen against other phones.

      I've hard mine for a year and many updates later it has become extremely laggy and also the camera has trouble fpcusing

      •  

        Mine is fine. Camera is great too.
        Had it since release but I have reinstalled everything.

    •  

      Hows the battery life?

  •  

    For 2017 phones, this or Pixel 2?

    • +3 votes

      Was tempted by the Pixel 2's stunning camera. But no expandable memory was the dealbreaker for me.
      I went with this instead.

      • +5 votes

        Yeah, the fact that it doesn't have a headphone jack and wireless charging is also disappointing. I was leaning towards the Pixel 2 mainly for the camera too, but I am kinda conflicted to pick one over the other now. :(

          The camera difference is so low, it doesnt matter

            @Most Wanted: @Most Wanted: It's a damn big difference in camera quality! That said, you can get Pixel camera app ported over to Galaxy phones

      no expandable memory…
      pixel 2 doesnt have an ip rating too?

      •  

        Pixel 2 is ip67. It also has pure Android with fastest update. Even Android One like Nokia 7 plus is only getting pie update now, about 2 months later than Pixel.

        S8 has Samsung Pay on top though, which is really useful as it's much more widely accepted than either Apple or Google (Asian countries).

        Because OW will always find a way.

    Cheapest I've seen a new Aus stock S8. Got one from Allphones (part of Mobileciti) eBay for $637 + Cashrewards discount a couple of months ago with the 25% off eBay voucher. Next best alternative right now would be $729.41 on the Mobileciti eBay store with the 5% discount.

    And another 10% off using discounted instant delivery egift cards from RACQ

      A link to that, please?

        Just realised Suncorp had DJ at 10% off as well. Membership free if you are a Suncorp or Aami customer.

      with this type of sale, better to pay by credit card and forgone those 10% unless you happen to shop with them occasionally because there's very high chance of out of stock and you end up with unwanted giftcards

    When you do a search on their site it says - Galaxy S8 Demo

    I have an S8. Great camera, largely a great phone, just be prepared for frustrations with the little things - turning the torch on if you have a passcode is way more painful than it should be, the fingerprint sensor is located in a really dumb place and impossible to use (though facial recognition works well) etc. If you can put up with the minor annoyances, you'll love it.

    •  

      you can remap the bixby button to use the torch. I've got mine set up so i just have to double tap it to switch on the torch, don't even need to turn the screen on (bxactions is the app)

    •  

      I must be really talented… Been using the fingerprint sensor as my primary unlock method for the last 18 months on my S8+.

          AU stock with 24 mnths warranty?

          • +2 votes

            @ozhunter68: I'm meaning the S8 Australian stock prices hasn't moved much at all in the past year and a bit. Let alone the S7 price.

            •  

              @Gilby15: Sure, I understood that.

              I do believe this $635.99 price is currently the lowest ever for New AU stock so far, but like you say has only dropped a bit since one + years ago.

              As someone has commented below, Samsung is following Apples lead in High Pricing according to fashion/trend/image advertising and marketing.

              The only Samsung phone I have ever Bought was a Samsung Ativ S years ago from this deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/135132 just to test out windows phone ( never ended up using it as my daily driver as I liked my Android HTC Incredible S ).

              After setting up a SG8+ a few months ago for someone else, I was impressed with what I saw/felt and if price came down to my level ( below $500 ) I could consider this Android option in future, maybe lol.

  •  

    Anyone had experience with DJ online shopping? Ordered something on Monday 8 Oct, and received confirmation but not a word since.

    •  

      Was it for delivery? They state it can take up to 7 days to send out. They might be asking a store to send stock to you

      •  

        Yes, delivery was included in price (or so called free delivery…). Ok, will follow up next week. But for a large business this online sales turnaround time is not up to standards today.

        •  

          Yeah they're pretty slow at the moment …

  • +2 votes

    Best price for AU stock I’ve seen, and as a long-time Samsung fan looked into buying one, but Samsung competes with Apple for price gouging these days, and though a nice phone with good specs I'm still not sure they're good value. It's the build that really puts me off. Every S8 owner I know has smashed them, even a fall from a coffee table. Those rounded edges just seem like dumb design over practicality to me. They don’t sit well in my hand, and I don't get the fashion for front and back glass. Like the early iPhones, if you need a cover to protect them, what’s the point? Just build them to last in the first place.

    • +1 vote

      Apple is in fashion business that makes more money as nothing lasts more than 1 year. Samsung follows the money.
      Being in Android world means you can always change for much cheaper alternatives.
      PS. Every 2nd iphone I've seen was cracked.

    Great find, thanks. The deal is still available in stores. Just picked one up from David Jones in Chatswood.

        Following this: not every store sells technology. You would be best to call the city store in your state and if you're in Melbourne, Chadstone as well (and for Sydneysiders, Chatswood and Bondi Junction)

    Better than HTC One m8? In real, hands on experience not on specs

    • +1 vote

      Sorry to say, time to let go your HTC M8.

    •  

      The HTC has better speakers maybe…

      I have actually used one, it is ok, but don't pretend it is a modern phone experience. A new Android phone does not need a custom rom to have a smooth experience (sound familiar?)

      When you upgrade your phone you will notice how laggy your HTC really is, and how much battery life has improved in the last few years.

      • +1 vote

        The HTC has better speakers definitely. Camera is crap on HTC, screen is nice but nowhere the level of the S8. Performance is a noticeable improvement on the s8, especially with things like gaming that requires a bit of loading ufs storage vs emmc. And apps like snapchat aren't that great of an experience on the older Android flagship models. If you use a custom rom the one m8 still holds up very well considering its age.

        •  

          I agree with everything except "HTC camera is crap".On paper the s8 has higher specs but to the eye I don't see a difference in pic quality on the phone or a regular size monitor between the two.
          So I wouldn't say it's crap. Also HTC has a metal case & twin speakers that sound lot better than Top end phones in the market.

    Hate curved edges on the screen… Is that just me?

    • +1 vote

      I always thought I hated them, but after a few weeks with the S8 I grew to quite like them.

      They're actually really comfortable to use for scrolling - just use the edge of your finger along the curves.

    Thanks OP for posting the deal. I get one from JB Hifi for the same price.
