    Deal: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for $864.99 on eBay
    eBay has the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for $865. That's a far cry from its original price tag of $950 or more.

    I bought my Note 8 from them - they shipped fast
    It is a Dual Sim International Model
    You can have 2 SIMS or 1 SIM and 1 MiccroSD

    And go figure I just paid 899 for mine!

    Still very happy with them!

    Dual-SIM version, which means it's very likely a grey import from Asia, like Hong Kong. These are frequently described as "international" and "intentional unlocked" by eBay and Amazon vendors. Be aware Samsung may not honour warranty for grey import phones, and it might not receive OTA updates either if used outside of the intended region or country.

    I have already had a large OTA update.
    And yes - I cannot register it with Samsung USA
    Not sure what they would do If i had a problem with it.
    I am not sure I have ever had a problem with any Samsung Galaxy Phone I have had - going back to "touch" aka S II

    Yeh Samsung USA will not touch a dual-SIM version device that was intended for sale and use in Asia, like Hong Kong, Malaysia, Taiwan, etc. Any problem that requires warranty service you'd have to take it up with the eBay vendor, and maybe even ship it back to Samsung HK.

    I had to return a Samsung phone last year, a Note7.

    Ahh Note 7 !

    I like that size (of the Note 7) better.

    Well I had an offer (that I have NEVER used before) for 3.99 a month Warranty
    So I took it Will only keep it one year

    I do agree about the size of the note7 being better than the size of the note8. At least for me. but don't try to pry my note8 out of my hands now. Not after the double recall distress last year...not happening!
