With the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 right around the corner, we’re starting to see some very nice deals on two of 2017’s hottest smartphones – the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Right now over on Amazon, you can save yourself a cool $150 on either device, which would leave you with a total of $574.99 for the S8 and $674.99. It’s still a pretty penny, but this is one of the best deals we’ve seen to date.

By now, these devices are almost obsolete. Hell, the Galaxy S9 isn’t all that far off, itself. But if you don’t mind having a phone that isn’t the newest, this is a deal you might want to consider. And even though they aren’t brand new phones, they’re still the best thing you can get at the time of this post. Here are links you can use to purchase, should you decide to:

Both the S8 and the S8+ have amazing cameras, they’re waterproof, and they have beastly internals. Here’s a look at their specs, in case you need a refresher:
