Vodafone allegedly reveals Samsung Galaxy S8 price in Europe

Samsung Galaxy S8 and its more related, S8 Plus, is expected to eventually make their official appearance tomorrow, but details about the two phones continued to leak. The last piece of the big S8 puzzle is the price: we heard from various sources that the price of the new phone will be higher than the Galaxy S7 family, with several different prices for different markets.

Today we hear news about the price of the S8 Galaxy family in Europe and the Czech Republic, in particular. Information allegedly came from Vodafone Czech Republic. Here are the numbers:

Galaxy S8 – 21 977 CZK (equivalent to approximately € 815)
Galaxy S8 + – CZK 24,977 (equal to € 925)

Keep in mind that the price in euros is an indicator of the average price of the Galaxy S8 in Europe.

As you can see clearly, the trend is confirmed: the Galaxy S8 will most likely cost more than its predecessor, at least initially. For comparison, last year we had to follow the price for the S7 series in Europe:

Galaxy S7 – € 700
Galaxy S7 Edge – € 800

We are curious to see how customers will respond to new prices higher. Chances are that in the United States, where the real value of the phone remains hidden in your monthly payments in one form or another, the higher the price will be less noticeable, but how in the global market where users are accustomed to paying the full retail price of the device? Only time will tell.

Your iPhone might feel faster with iOS 10.3

Apple released something really amazing 10.3 of the last iOS update for the iPhone and iPad: a few days later it changed the operating system on millions of devices without the usual user even noticing.

IOS 10.3 update, however, made another important change in iPhone’s experience: making the device feel faster.

Note that we say “feel faster”, and not “faster”.

What we mean is that Apple is supposed to shorten a lot of animation in iOS 10.3, so that the interaction in many interface elements is noticeably faster, without any changes in the actual clock speed of the processor.

We are playing around with 10.3-active iOS iPhone 6s here, and we can not differentiate ourselves, but it was at that time. Do you feel the improvement in speed came with iOS 10.3?

Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro launched

The mid-range Galaxy C7 Pro is already available for purchase in China, along with other members of the series, such as the C5 Galaxy and the Galaxy Pro C9 Pro. Nevertheless, it seems that Samsung plans to introduce the Galaxy C7 Pro in more countries.

After Hong Kong and possibly India, the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro can make a leap to the United States in the coming weeks. The smartphone was recently seen in the country by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), where it was issued a permit, so Samsung can make it available in the US

Unfortunately, it’s hard to say whether the US operator will choose this one. Samsung plans to release Galaxy Galaxy J3 and J7 (2017) in the country in the near future, and both phones will be released in several operator networks.

However, Galaxy Pro is better than the C7 smartphone specification wise. The core of the phone consists of a powerful octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable memory.

In addition, in the middle of the range Samsung sports phones 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution (1080p) Full HD. The 3300 mAh battery is included, as well, along with a 16-megapixel camera on the front and back. The only drawback seems to be the fact that it comes with Android 6.0.1 Zephyr on board.

While the Galaxy C7 Pro costs $ 420 in China, Samsung can offer prices were slightly higher in the US, but not more than $ 500 instantly.
