Looks good. I've never had a Samsung and I was considering it when I had my last upgrade. I might take a look at this when I'm due my next upgrade.

Hey @Tom

 

I agree and from the situation from the Note 7 I'm hoping for a stunning Flagship release.   Smiley Happy

I think it'll be that when Samsung hold the Unpacked event on the 29/3/17 they'll announce the official launch  / release date. 

 

Vodafone then would supply the phone 8 days prior to the launch / release date.

Hi BandOfBrothers,

I am very tempted to get the S8+ but as l normally buy my phones as l like them unlocked and unbranded/sim free and can't really afford to get another phone at the moment l will stick with my S7 Edge for awhile longer it's a great phone and l have only had it about 6 months and normally keep them for about a year or so before l change them away.

Hey @Stevie1

 

 

That's my choice too to buy unbranded - sim free - unlocked. 

 

However this time round I made a slight error as I bought from my local Samsung Experience Store which is really Cpw.

 

So I ended up with an Unbranded Sim Free s7 edge but with a CsC Code that isn't the first to get updates. Mine is XEU and it's Btu thst gets the updates which are phones typically supplied Direct by samsung. Something I know you are aware of.  Smiley Happy

 

Even though Samsung have taken over these Experience Stores I'm not confident of getting the CsC coded phone I want as the staff in that shop said it'll be a 50/50 joint adventure. 

 

So this time it's going to be ordered Direct from the Samsung Online Store.  Smiley Wink

 

As for my next model it's going to be one of the s8 models or I may wait and see what September brings in the way of a Note 8. 

 

I normally wait and watch and try demo models when a new phone I'm interested in is released to try and make sure it's not a lemon before investing in it.

 

So really from the launch in April for the s8 I wouldn't purchase until September anyway so I'll be able to compare the models and invest in one. 

 

I've had my s7 edge for 5 months and it's a really good phone.

 

I typically save a set amount of cash each month which sits in a high interest online bank account so the funds are there when it's time. I also sell my current phone sometimes to go towards the next phone.

Hi BandOfBrothers,

Your not the only one to make that error mate l did as well l got my S7 Edge from cpw as well and came with the same XEU CSC but l flashed the BTU CSC onto it a while ago and got the update to 7.0 a bit quicker but my security patch is still on jan1 lost volte, but still have 4g and LTE.

Download the new version of the XEU CSC last night as the security patch is newer l think it's on Feb1 while the BTU is still on Jan1.
