Cool thanks, are there any screen replacements included in the standard warranty?

I ordered a GS8+ on Virgin Mobile online, up to 3 weeks for delivery, almost want to cancel! Anyone know if going in store would result in getting a phone sooner?

Has anyone here experienced this "Pink/Red" display tinge problem? There's a few people over on Whirlpool that are having this issue with their new S8's (mostly around the edges). The software color correction that samsung says will fix it doesn't seem to make anything better.

And whats a reasonable price to expect to sell the Gear VR for? its pretty useless to me

No, my screen is perfect as is the phone, nice upgrade from my beloved Nexus 5. Was looking for something that wasn't to big in the hand and this fits the bill. S8 Orchid Grey.

Here is a an in depth video of the S8 with over 150 tips, some basic some not so

Hopefully its some help

Might be obvious to some, but the official Clear View Stand Cover will not close properly if you're using a thick, curved glass screen protector like the one from Cygnett. Still keeping this combo though as I am paranoid about protecting my precious new S8+

I only purchased the Clear View Stand Cover, do you think that's enough protection? Surely when its in your pocket or in a gym bag or something the screen would be always covered?

I ordered mine Thursday arvo, just contacted Telstra, they are waiting on stock replenishment

I was going to wait and see what happened for what the iPhone 8 was going to bring, but after having a look at the S8+ earlier today, I actually really liked it and decided to preorder it. Just preordered it online with optus. I've had a few stints with android in the past and never liked it too much being too used to iPhones, but today I was impressed with the software. I currently use an iPhone 6s+ which will now be used for my work sim to replace the iPhone 5 I use for that sim. Wish the s8 was dual sim!!

The case doesn't have a locking mechanism that prevents the clear view portion from opening accidentally so having the screen protector just satiates my paranoia even just little.
