Unlocked Galaxy S8 Prospects Dashed By Fearful Consumers

By  | 

Samsung announced earlier today that they will soon start selling the unlocked Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus here in the US but unfortunately for them, the reveal was met with negative response from the consumers.

This cannot be helped as the first details dropped on the unlocked Galaxy S8 makes the phone appear more underwhelming when compared to the ones available here in the US. The upcoming unlocked S8 is simply no different from the unofficial unlocked A8 being sold by third party retailers.

To make matters worse, the upcoming unlocked Galaxy S8 has poor after sales service prospects. The consumers simply saw how slow Samsung was when rolling out the Nougat update for the older S7 hence they are expecting the same for the unlocked S8.

When a carrier us able to roll out a firmware update faster than the manufacturer, clearly something is out of place hence many have decided to stay away from the upcoming unlocked S8.
