    Default Samsung Galaxy S8 – Launch Date and Price for South Africa

    https://mybroadband.co.za/news/smart...th-africa.html

    S8 - R15 499
    S8+ - R17499

    Probably looking at cheapest contract of R700 for S8.
    Read on Android Authority that the price of new S8 would be $750 ( equivalent to R9820). This is a huge disparity even factoring taxes etc. Unless they accounting for the rand tanking again soon.

    I guess I'll have to look for an alternative.

    The stuff that pops up on OLX. Is this the first fake Samsung S8 in South Africa?
    Really amazing. I wonder if anyone falls for these scams.

    Amateur. The least Sipho could have done was remove the obvious BGR watermark.

    I was contacted by our local MTN shop to come and complete my S8 order.

    I decided to take the S8 Plus, they said I may get it this Saturday.

    Well damn. I pre-ordered from MTN, Vodacom, Telkom and CelluCity. Haven't heard a peep from them yet.

Next you will be telling me white candles are the only true candles. Also "allegedly" does not equal the truth, kids do tend to talk a lot of ****.

    I told my local guy a few weeks ago he must put my name on the top of the list, he completed everything then and phoned me yesterday afternoon to come and finalise everything.
