It’s probably too late for holiday gift shopping, but you you can still score a flagship Galaxy on the cheap for the new year. And if that’s not your thing, perhaps you’ll like an LG better.
There’s a Samsung Galaxy Note8 (dual SIM) on eBay US for $730 right now. Available in Black, Gold and Gray with 64GB storage.
Europeans are looking at €710 for a Maple Gold variant (also dual SIM, also from eBay). If you want to go smaller, there's a Galaxy S8 (dual SIM) going for €520 (Orchid Gray).

And the promised alternative – LG V30+ (dual SIM). It costs €662 and ships from France.
