That hole punch won't annoy, or bother any of you watching videos/movies, looking at pics, etc., in landscape?

Just pulled the trigger. Could not pass up on the $550 trade in.

I couldn't agree more. Spending over $1300 after tax with no choice in color.

All the other carriers have the 512 and 1tb Ceramic models in black and white. At least on the Samsung Website.

I take back my previous post, upgrade went through paid my last lease payment today, it's on its way lol. Sprint was just being stupid when I talked to them earlier they weren't very clear at all... Problem with outsourcing I'm sure jimbob.

The two colors I wanted won't be available in the US, go figure.

I just perordered the 128GB  S10+ in Prism White. I got too good of a deal and couldn't pass it up. Also I really want those Galaxy Buds. I have the Gear IconX 2018 and these seem like a worthy upgrade over the last year's model. I really wanted the 5G model but after thinking it over, I realized that the 5G model is likely going to have insane battery drain while on 5G and that next year's model will likely include 5G by default.

I'm surprised they are doing the 31/month(using billing credit, grr) for this device so early on for the 512GB Ceramic white plus the free earbuds. The $288 downpayment isn't too bad.

I don't see the point in a 5G model currently, LTE is still super fast. Will wait and see what the S11 offers next year.

Telstra in Australia said that they are doing a program where you'll be able to turn in your S10+ in good, working condition and get the S10 5G for free when it's released. 

1. There has to be a catch.

2. I wonder if Sprint or Samsung will try something similar.

Does anyone know if the S10 will have a pressure sensitive display, like the S8 has?

I don't think any Samsung phone has a pressure sensitive screen.

Looks like Samsung is finally letting you remap the Bixby button on the GS10 which is awesome!

That's a nice addition, the biggest thing I'm looking forward to is Samsung is finally opening up their camera API so pro apps can finally take advantage of the hardware and won't be limited to basic frame rate etc gonna be huge.

No it doesn't have the pressure sensitive home button, likely a casualty of the in-display fingerprint sensor. Still that leaves the question of why the Galaxy S10E doesn't have that pressure sensitive  home button.

I think they were referring to the pressure sensitive home buttons on the S8 and S9.

Where is everyone seeing the ceramic white & black? I looked on Sprint and not finding that color for the S10

What are the terms on the free Galaxy Buds? The spec sheet I read make it sound confusing, like you HAVE to open a new line to get them? I thought there was a page on it during the Priority Access portion. Anyone remember what it says or screen shot it??

My account is currently not as "awesome" as I believed yesterday. Whatever they "fixed" actually borked my whole account and charged me ETFs immediately on ALL my lines! So I'm STILL trying to get this all reversed, but they ensure me that I'll get it all waived and get my pre-orders. We will see.

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
