    Got mine on Tuesday! Gor mt Cree blue Jay’s hoodie and the Netflix code last night. So far I am really impressed with the S8+! I am not having any issues with the red tint some are saying they are having! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0fb31c78f488e5a091190019454e2c61cf350c98abffcd62122ba3c619090543.jpg

    Will Costco bring them in stock for outright purchases?

    • Zee

      I think you can purchase it outright, but it will be locked to a carrier. I also think they have an offer when u buy from Costco.

    I got mine yesterday. Kinda cried at how gorgeous it is. Almost proposed to my S8 on the spot. Covered that ish in Ghost Armour so quick!!!

      “Kinda cried at how gorgeous it is. Almost proposed to my S8 on the spot.”

      I can’t tell if you’re being serious.

      He could be, it’s pretty damn beautiful, lol.

    • tvguy

      He’s serious. It is truly the most beautiful display I’ve ever seen on a smartphone. I was in awe when I first turned it on.

    • Sean-Paul

      It’s gorgeous. I had my doubts about upgrading from the S7 Edge…But I have no doubts now. It’s freaking a beautiful screen

  • Garrett Cooper

    LOL at Bell. I was going to preorder but their loyalty department wants to charge me $289 for the phone on anew 2yr contract starting at $110/mo for 2 GB.

    • Roger

      What else did you expect?

    • Sebastian

      Sounds like Premium Plus option. Could still do Premium.

    For those who got it, how do you feel about placement of the fingerprint sensor? I prefer the front so I’d go for a S7 or S7e instead.

    • Sean-Paul

      I’m not using it. Being able to wake up the device with the front capacitive button is great. I still rather use pattern unlock

    • Dimitri

      I’m actually digging the fingerprint sensor on the back where it is. Maybe because I have a big hand but it’s easy for me to use the fingerprint sensor.

    Still waiting on my Bell S8+ Orchid Grey preorder… preordered not long after it was announced and was told I’d have by 17th, and here we are. ???? Anyone else in same boat?

    • kyle

      Call in bell , I didn’t have a problem when I had pre order mine on March 31th I got mine on april 17th in midnight black.

    • Sebastian

      Preorders only opened after it was announced around March 29/30 – so I’m not sure if you mean you preordered April 13.

      Still wasn’t in stock today so I picked up at another dealer. Missing out on my VR but got phone.

      The Grey phones are delayed as per usual with new Samsung releases. I preordered a Grey S8+ from Rogers on the 1st day preorders opened. They told me Apr 17th and I’m still waiting. Today they offered me a black one if I didn’t want to keep waiting. I turned it down.

  • Taz

    Do they sell the s8 unlocked? I heard ppl getting it from Samsung and it got bloatware from the first sim carrier they entered

  • Roni

    I got my S8 and Gear VR on Tuesday and I’m loving it. It’s absolutely beautiful! I’m also loving the battery life I’m getting with this phone. 5-6+ hours of SOT with WQHD+, and with the help of playing with the settings and using Package Disabler Pro. Compared to the 3-4 hours I got with my Note 5, this phone is golden haha.

    • Doug Muir

      How’d you get the Gear VR already? You got it in-stire with the phone? Samsung says they’re shipping mine.

    • Erik Bolduc

      How exactly do you register the phone to your Samsung Account?

    • Roni

      I pre-ordered online with Telus and they shipped the Gear VR with the phone.

  • thomasnorman

    Is it really available in Canada? Could have fooled me! I preordered on the 30th and haven’t heard a thing. Spent almost $1500 for the s8+, case and wireless charger. I’ve been seeing and talking with people who ordered AFTER ME that have gotten theirs. Hell, a few got them Wednesday last week! I’ve been a huge Samsung supporter for over 13 years now. I haven’t bought any other brand tv, I actually just bought a 70 inch 4k hdr Samsung TV! I’ve got the note 5 sitting in my DJI Mavic pro drone case, I’ve got a Samsung tablet right beside me. Needless to say I used to love Samsung. This just really really bums me out. I just want my dang phone 🙁

    • rigosj

      Same with me. I pre-ordered the S8+ a minute after it became available on 29 March and I am still waiting. They dont even have the courtesy to say something.

    • thomasnorman

      . I called Samsung yesterday and the guy said its shipping today. Has been released since Monday. No shipping info yet. Just called them, he said it will ship by Friday at the latest. I’ve contacted tech data directly and they asked for my email and phone number and they will contact me. So Brutal especially because I’m 45 minutes or less away from tech data.

    • rigosj

      I hope you got it by now. It is Friday afternoon and there is no sign of delivery. How long will it take to delivery a well in time pre-ordered phone?
      Most probably, I won’t do a pre-order at Tech Data Canada again. They are the last to get the mobile.

    • crea

      You are not alone, there a lot of people pre-ordered through carrier are still waiting. Those who pre-ordered from 3rd party retailers seeem to have better luck (including myself). There seem to be shortage of orchid grey s8+.

      Those who are expecting “orchid grey” to be actually grey, you might be disappointed, to me it looks very purple. Saw a guy wanting to exchange to black when I was in the store to pick up mine.

    • thomasnorman

      Luckily I went with black. I called Samsung yesterday and the guy said its shipping today. Has been released since Monday. No shipping info yet. Just called them, he said it will ship by Friday at the latest. I’ve contacted tech data directly and they asked for my email and phone number and they will contact me.
