My S8+ has now been updated to Shipped, though I haven't received any tracking info.

My Clearview case just says In Progress though, so doesn't look like it's going to arrive at the same time as the phone.

Mine says 1.80 lbs so it may indeed be that.

God I hate Vodafone. I originally ordered my S8 with them as I had a 15% employee discount. Then I noticed a slightly more expensive plan they were offering that doubled the data with a quarter of the upfront cost. Got in touch to ask to switch only to get back "Sorry we can't change the order now till you receive the phone."

So then I asked to just cancel the order... same response. So I've just been charged the 120 upfront cost to receive a phone I will instantly return.

Did you get any tracking info from Samsung USA? Here's hoping we get some email from them by tonight.

Want to get my hands on it before the end of this week.

Looking forward to impressions in here. I was really considering the S8+, but decided to wait for either the Pixel 2 or Note 8.

I think I always get suckered into staying with TouchWiz because at the beginning it runs fine, but then as the phone gets older shit starts lagging and freezing up. So this time I'll go with a new launcher.

FedEx list my package as 2lbs, so I'm sure it's your S8.

I did this with the S7 more than any other occasion. Call me old fashioned, but Nova does what I like.

Still estimated for 20th delivery with my main order. No movement since it was being "processed by supplier" on the 11th when I ordered. I don't have high hopes :(

Ya I usually go with TouchWiz at the beginning and then switch to Nova after a few months. Hopefully I don't have to, but nova is perfectly fine.

I'm seriously considering the jump from iOS this year and hoping the Note delivers.

4K was the rumor since the Note 5, 6GB since the Note 7, though it's inevitable, especially now that they have resolution scaling as standard.

Would scale better to 1080p as well due to being exactly 4x.

Is there any reason why it wouldn't be?

I've never pre-ordered a phone from Best Buy before, but the original e-mail said 4/21 for the date. The website does still say "We will let you know"...

I think it's way too early to claim things like "Red Gate". Let's wait until more people get their hands on the phone. I'm really hoping there aren't any issues though.

I'm getting mine with my shipment. If you pre-ordered elsewhere, you receive a voucher to redeem through Samsung directly.
