The company’s Galaxy S8 pair is the latest are greatest they’ve ever made and with a trade-in of just about any device, one can bring the price down to around $425 for the Galaxy S8 or just $525 for the Galaxy S8+. That puts you in OnePlus 5 pricing territory!

Samsung’s recently introduced Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone, and the larger Galaxy S8+, feature the as-expected iterative improvement in hardware. The 2017 Samsung Galaxy S flagship devices feature newer chipsets, displays and designs with a relatively tall, narrow display.
