  1. it’s like S8-series is an a record breaking streak, it’s breaking all the pre-order records in every country there is with their launch, even the records of their own predecessors, looks like in front of that awesome infinity display and IRIS scanner with great camera, people forgot the small shortcomings like awkward finger position or the RED tint issues, overall a huge profit for Samsung this year!!

  2. Samsung seems to be pulling in huge profits with just the S8 series so far ,the Note 8 will most likely help them gain more market share and the total profit for this year will more likely break the records of the previous years and put them in a place where they can put in huge money on R&D which they already are with 13 billion in the previous fiscal year •_• with that said the S9 should be really good(hopefully .too early to say.)

  3. Yet another case of immense response with pre orders. This is really turning out to be a lot bigger than I expected. Wow. While the phone, with its looks and creativity has gotten the response it deserves, I’m waiting to see if Samsung can keep up with the demand and supply phones in time. Or atleast with a reasonable delay. They will have a lot of unhappy, impatient customers otherwise and it also might discourage people who want to buy the phone directly later instead of pre orders.
