    Where is the ” incentive” that old Note 7 owners are supposed to get from Samsung? Hello Samsung Canada anywhere there?

    This is ridiculous.

      The most thing that Samsung made me hate is
      the word

      SOON

      My phone is at Rogers store waiting for me and I’m waiting for Samsung… What a joke

    • TORM558

      Sitting in the same boat as you. They expect to make such a promise like that and then not deliver but still expect me to show up and pay? Nope

      picked up mine.. i was assured by samsung that we are still getting a promo after the purchase

      Do you really think Samsung is on Mobile Syrups article comment section?

      Have you tried actually contacting Samsung directly??

    • Dimitri

      It’s best to see the sarcasm I have in my post before commenting..

      MS has ways of contacting Samsung Canada head office and show them what we are posting. Also companies like Samsung DO in fact have staff look through various tech pages and see. That has been proven by Samsung while back.

      In the end we should be posting posts like this.

    I went by the store I’m supposed to pick it up at, just to see if I could get the jump on it.

    Sadly, no. Good ol’ Sasktel. It probably goes to the main office and then distributed to the dealers from there (at least in Regina).

    Probably get a call by noon. Guess I know what I’m doing on my lunch hour, and the rest of the day.

    On the way

    I wish that Google would make a nexus/pixel line with the note series. but it will never happen

  • Scio

    This report fails to add that the Pre-Order date for the Note 8 has been moved to Sept. 17

    And still no word on incentives for Note 7 customers on launch day.

    Samsung Canada is a complete joke sometimes.

      Sometimes? All the time.

      It’s all the time. I had to basically go on their Facebook page and lash at them when they did not repair my S2 smartwatch due to the battery not working anymore in warranty. It took me 2 months later.

      Then still having a Note 7 at home which i can’t return due to them running me around is making me feel like this company is nothing but talk.

      THEY ARE THE WORSE CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER

  • Fodder0f4

    Got mine and put a case on it almost immediately. Now the screen NeoFlex and time to start putting this puppy through it’s paces. Yay!

    • don’t you find the neoflex orange peel like? i got one from a comapany on amazon and they cut the screen out like the s8… gonna return it..the company Color has smooth screen protectors so the spen writes nicely..

  • got mine today.. deep sea blue.. amazing balls… no phone will compare to the stylus tech of the note series…

    IF SAMSUNG DOES NOT PROVIDE CANADIAN NOTE 7 OWNERS WITH A DISCOUNT TOWARDS NOTE 8 (like it did to US note 7 owners) then ME AND MY FAMILY WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER SAMSUNG PRODUCT AGAIN!!!

  • George

    “The company has yet to detail that incentive, however”.
    If you are in this business, you know Samsung does not give a F for Canadian market since it is nothing to compare with U.S.

    I caved. I couldn’t wait for Samsung’s BS note 7 promotion. One of those situations where I love the product but hate their customer service. I went ahead and picked up my Note 8 yesterday and love it. Let’s see if Samsung comes out with the promotion after the fact. Plus the original charge pads work fine on the Note 8 so the pre order version is kinda useless unless you didn’t have one before. I won’t mind the option of getting a free upgraded VR as a loyalty consumer.

  • Christine

    What’s the promotion? I was at Samsung yesterday to pick up my note 8 and I’ve been told there will not be a promotion for “us” the note 7 owners…..
