    Could go for that, but no more.

    After my S7 edge got ripped out of my hands by a robber, I undertook to not spend more than half the cost of the top-end phones again.

    Takealot has the Samsung S8+ 64GB for R15800.

    128GB sold out in USA - I was too slow :-(

    Had it in my basket but then I messed around for too long with addresses.

    Those looking to get one - Please post your supplier/shipping method/final costs, etc.

    My OP3 was bought from Europe and couriered with TNT (didn't want to lose another one to our wonderful Post Office again) but the dollar price seems to work out to a grand cheaper by my calculations....YMMV

    Don't care about lack of SD, but lack of ingress protection and still-large forehead and chin make me a bit ehhh on it.

    Ordered the 64GB model in the UK. Was going to get the 128GB model but decided nah. Don't really need the extra storage and 6GB RAM is already nuts. May as well save R800.

    My step-bro is considering selling his OP 3 if you're interested in that too.

    So about $570 for the 6gb/64gb model, via Aliexpress/DHL.

    $660 for the 8gb/128gb model...

    Bit more than I was expecting...

    Add another $30 odd for import duties etc Will set you back close to R9k for the 8gb/128gb model...

    Should be a lot more than that.

    Edit : Those are rip-off prices, rather just order from the US store.

    On the 3T I got through them they under declare the value of the item, hence the low import duties.

    Yeah, prices are definitely inflated. Maybe they will come down...

    Official release is 27 June. Should get a lot more sellers with pricing in line with US then. Only issue for me when ordering from the US store is the plug, don't like having to use an adaptor.

    Almost all of my stuff uses US plugs, doesn't bother me any more.
