Im contemplating the Note 8 as well, new.


Currently they are $1200 which is not cheap.


What are the chances they will get a reduction in price over easter?


And who is the main company for brand new mobile discounts?

$1200 is for a parallel import looking at PriceSpy, so I'd say not much of a discount will be had come Easter if any.

Was looking at a Dual sim Note 8 from Einfo for that price or a OP5T from Noel Leemings but for some reason NL pulled all traces of it off their website.

THe op5T is a goodie too. I guess we will have to wait and see. This is why I stick to midrange asian market phones haha, brand name ones are just so expensive for what you actually get.

Don't know about the Note 8 but the S8 will probably have some deals with the S9 on release.
Note will probably have to wait until closer to the Note 9, iPhone (whatever) release.
