      Why does anyone need a $1895 or $2500 TV when $599 ones are available?

      • +1 vote

        Funny you should say that, I picked up a 65" TV for $600 recently and am really happy with it.

      I think its a reasonable question. 'Need' is always the wrong way to think about things, but you are paying for a superior product (and covering the R&D that funnels down into the $500 devices).

      The main draw for these is the camera. Other valuable features are the IP68 rating ('waterproof', dust resistant), fast charging, large screen and good screen responsiveness/colour reproduction.

      Like many things, if you are going to be using it a lot you should get something of a decent quality. for some people that may be $500, for others $100 or $2000. Its all a balance of what you can afford.

      Exactly the same reason as any other product. It may do a lot of the same things but it does them better. Phones from 15 years ago also took photos,but the next one did it better and then better again and betterlr again. A $5000 car gets you around as well, but a more expensive one will do it more comfortably, with more bells and whistles and better fuel efficiency. I could also eat at home but why do I choose to eat at a restaurant? If you work, have enough disposable income to be able to do it then why not

      No need, it's want. People need shelter + food, everything else is want.
      I used to want the latest phone, and people thought I was spendthrift paying for a O2 XDA back in the day… I've had every single flagship Samsung phone since the Galaxy II to the Gaalxy S8+ when a couple months in it fell from aboutr 15cm on to concrete and cracked the screen.

      From now on I'm buying whatever scores well from Xiaomi, but I remain vehemently spendthrift with personal and home audio, where $2k doesn't get you in the door… still ain't buying snake oil cables though, monoprice + amazonbasics in that department.

      The world needs early adopters to keep the wheels of innovation turning, so buy the damn phone already.

      Pretty weird seeing tech trends repeating though, looking at you flip fones 2.0.

      I want bendy phones, where the screen and body are soft and bendy, so they don't crack if dropped from 15cm, you can sit on them, have them bend in your pocket, have your wife throw them at you…

      Honestly, this is a fair assessment considering we are on this site called "Ozbargain". But if you look upthread, there was a person who actually made money from selling a S10.

        Honestly, this is a fair assessment considering we are on this site called "Ozbargain".

        We are on OzBargain, not OzCheapestThings. A bargain is a good deal on an item - it doesn't mean it has to be the cheapest brand.

        Value is subjective. I've used Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, and now a Pixel 4. I think Samsung makes the most well-rounded flagship-spec Android phone, which makes it worth the extra money for me. But at the same time I wouldn't recommend it to everyone - some people will be perfectly satisfied with a $400 Pocophone. Different people simply have different use cases and priorities.

        If OzBargain only listed the cheapest items, we will never see a single Apple deal, Sony/LG/Samsung TVs, Bosch power tools, Dyson vacs, etc. We will only see Pocophones, Viano TVs, Ozito tools, and Xiaomi vacuums.

          I think $450 off is a shit discount but not a bargain (i.e. as you say, a good deal). Subjective though. Of course, this is for a product that was just announced so any discount could be called a bargain but meh it's overpriced.

          • +4 votes

            @ippy: $450 (or 22.5%) is a shit discount for a brand-new product? Well then. We certainly have different expectations. :)

            •  

              @eug: I already acknowledged that and said it was subjective. Ultimately it's overpriced if they're able to immediately provide discounts.

      I am using a 3 yr old phone and ive not upgraded as most of the phones in past few years missed out on something important. Im upgrading to this as i cant find any other phone that gives everything in one package. Im gonna keep the phone for another 3 yrs and this is the only phone which will probably not feel outdated for the longest time compared to others in the market now. It has 5g, it has an exorbitant amount of ram and storage, 120hz screen, 240hz touch refresh, power cpu and gpu, big battery, big screen and one of the best displays, in hand felt same size as 11pro max despite having bigger screen(only width matters when u hold phone not height), superb camera setup with 8k video and single take option, lot of extra features like reverse charging, 45w fast charging etc.. every other current flagships lack 2 or more of the features. No other phone has everything like this.So yes 2k for this phone seems like a good deal for some of us.

    Education store gets the galaxy buds+ as well, says in the T&C for the promo https://images.samsung.com/is/content/samsung/p5/au/terms-conditions/samsung-galaxy-s20-pre-order-offer-terms.pdf?$ORIGIN_PDF$

      Doubtful and someone can try after they receive their product.

      “Samsung Online Store” means any online portal operated by Samsung in Australia through which eligible
      consumers or businesses can purchase the Participating Products, including Samsung’s e-store in Australia
      (accessible at the URL https://shop.samsung.com/au) and the Samsung Education Store.
      For the avoidance of doubt, the Samsung Online Store excludes the website known as the ‘Samsung Staff Portal’
      and the websites known as ‘Samsung Enhanced Partner Portal

        It specifically says in your quote that education store is included.

        • +1 vote

          but its Educational portal aka Samsung Epp.

          We all can try.

          Best thing is to not jump on the chat and ask for clarification.

          By doing this they will know about this and wont allow anyone of us to actually claim the galaxy bud+

      So.. Is the Samsung Education Store we're talking about here something different that is lumped in with the EPP or is it seperate? If so, Education Store is elegible for the free buds by the looks.

      •  

        only time will tell I think

      •  

        And also i can see on my education portal that it inlcudes the wireless battery pack as well :)

      • +2 votes

        Says this at the bottom of the page :( So now we have two conflicting T&C. Wonder if you can decline the battery and apply for the Buds+ instead?

        "Discount off RRP on the Galaxy S20 | S20+ | S20 Ultra purchased from the Samsung Education Store from 9.00am (AEDT) on 12 Feb 2020 to 11.59pm (AEDT) on 5 March 2020.

Not available in conjunction with Galaxy Buds+ offer. Subject to stock availability at time of purchase. Discount is not transferable, exchangeable or redeemable for cash. Not available in conjunction with any other offer."

        EDIT: Actually it says in the buds+ promo T&C that it cant be used in conjunction with other offers aka battery pack offer, so looks like a bust!

        just a note on the buds. i got them for free with my active 2 watch

        the buds are abbsolute garbage

        1. shitty sound quality
        2. terrible reception like if im running then the sound only comes through about 30% of the time, terrible distorted sound most of the time and no sound some of the time. with every swing of my arm while running the sound and connection is affected.
        3. if im lying at the beach and i have the phone on one side and then then over, the buds lose connection and cant reconnect. it's literally less than 1m but a change in postion means they just cant cope and give up.
        4. actual human bodies seem to block the reception hardcore
        5. the frustration and unreliability in using them makes them not worth using and just utter POS
        •  

          just a note on the buds. i got them for free with my active 2 watch

          You didn't, as this is a brand-new model that hasn't been released yet. It has dual drivers and a much longer 11-hour battery life.

          Yours might be defective. I have the 2017 model and have no reception problems. The reception on them is much better than the Beoplay E8. At home it only starts cutting out about 2 gyprock walls and a cupboard away.

  •  

    Finally got my $50 code and order placed!

    The cases were surprisingly cheap as well.

  •  

    Is it possible for this promo to sell out? I'm not sure if I should wait out to see if there are any good plans like with what JBs did with the Note 10 last year.

    •  

      mate just combine with $50 off newsletter discount and get one of these.
      you get a wireless powerbank too.

      If you get any new or better deals just cancel or return it.
      Samsung has 14 days change of mind returns as well.
      This ships on 6th March I think.

      You have more than a month to decide on.

    •  

      I mean realistically it's going to be pretty unlikely for any external retailers to beat EPP pricing with all the bonuses (buds and wireless) in the next month.

      If you manage to resell any of these you can reduce the rrp even further.

      Also out there, a lot of it will be based on RRP which is already $270—300 more on the base model.

  •  

    Yes, found below in the T's & C's document:

    "“Samsung Online Store” means any online portal operated by Samsung in Australia through which eligible
    consumers or businesses can purchase the Participating Products, including Samsung’s e-store in Australia
    (accessible at the URL https://shop.samsung.com/au) and the Samsung Education Store. "

    So it means purchases made on Education Store are eligible for Galaxy Buds+ as well as Wireless battery Pack. :P

      As noted above the wireless battery promo says cant be used with Buds+ promo so there is two conflicting T&C, one saying you get them another saying you dont.

    id love to see some camera comparisons between the iphone 11 and s20 asap, specially video recording and stabilization, night shots etc

  •  

    For someone that usually keeps phones for 3 years, went s4 & s7 & could go s20 now…. do you think its worth paying the extra for 5G? Like its not a big deal now, but will it be in 12months?

    •  

      I'd say its worth it now unless there is a specific area you use your phone that you need the extra speed from.

      In 6 months I would say it could be worth it and things will likely be a lot more competitive as well.

      • +5 votes

        Remember its an additional 4GB RAM for 5G models, eSim + Nano Sim (either one can be set as 5G, other one as 4G) + MicroSD slot
        And its only $120 so I would say go for the 5G model everyone, that worth it for the RAM and future resale alone

    • +1 vote

      Also worth noting the 5g S20 comes with 12GB ram vs 8GB for the 4G. 8 GB is still plenty but it's still worth pointing out.

      If you keep your phone 3 years I'd definitely be considering the 5g option, the overall cost difference when you consider it will have higher resale when it comes time to sell it is pretty small.

    •  

      I beg to differ.
      If you're not upgrading phones every time a new model comes out, I'd just buy S10 with 4G, as in 9 months S20 will not be a flagship anymore anyway … :)

      •  

        I am thinking that as well, wondering if there will be some good s10 deals around

        •  

          I'm in the same boat - thinking of getting a S10 Plus and using it for a year and then re-considering 5G.

          Having said that, based on what I can see on eBay:

          S10 Plus might fall to about $850 and I'm guessing it could be sold for about $450 in a years time, meaning the phone will cost $400 for the year.

          The S20 Plus 5G costs $1319 and I'm guessing it could be sold for about $700-750 in a years time, meaning the phone will cost about $600 for the year.

          So essentially the question becomes, do we want to spend the extra $200/year to have the latest tech?

      The previous T&C had a catch all clause that it couldn't be used in conjunction with any other offer so its unlikely even orders already made would be honoured. i.e. the wireless battery was the other offer blocking it.

        exactly. They sure will deny it and with the updated T&C, its clear someone was way too smart to jump on the chat and ask about this.
