This one is usually not for the average of us, just those who’d do anything to be ahead of the pack. Price as I gather from @TeriWanderi is Kshs 105k for the Galaxy S8 and 130k for the Galaxy S8+.

Last I heard from Samsung the recommended retail price was Kshs 85k for the S8 and Kshs 95k for the S8+, with a plan somewhere to have installment plans via a third party finance partner.

These are pre-market prices (since its not officially available in Kenya)

A month after the S7/S7 Edge officially launched, prices went down to 65K (S7) & 75K (S7 Edge)

At the time, official outlets were selling it at 75K (S7) & 85K (S7 Edge), with the same valuation being given by mobile insurance companies like Kenya Orient (Insured mine for ~8700, which is based on market value * 10% + taxes)

A good practice is to wayt at least a month after launch, that way if anything is detected it can be resolved and future phones won’t have the same issues - Like exploding phones or weak frameworks in the iPhone 6 body, both of which were reported less than a month after the phones launched.

I love the S8 but that price is too high. Better wait for the Moi Avenue shops to start selling it.


#4

Meanwhile, it sells in Portugal at €820 or Kshs 92k, in Kenya it starts selling on Friday 5th officially at Kshs 85k, 95k for the S8+.

You’re smart. Don’t pay for a product you have not seen.


#9

Did this work out? I have someone who needs the S8


#10

Bought from Jumia, but paid on delivery…


#11

Thank you, I will advise that. I once paid for a galaxy S6 on Jumia that never showed up. Took me two weeks of threats to get that money back.


#12

Mine took two days and only paid once I received and confirmed integrity of the item…


#13

I will advise them to do exactly that


#14

I would assume what you bought was a single SIM phone. They are cheaper than their dual SIM counterparts.
