How much will you pay for a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet in Bangkok?
While at Bangkok’s Fortune Town mall pricing tablets this weekend, I also checked out the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, as that’s likely to be a ‘gift’ to myself for Christmas this year. Unsurprisingly after testing it out, not only does the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 do everything I would want a tablet to do, it’s lightning fast and, in Thailand’s often over-priced tablet market, not too high a price for what you get. So, how much is a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet in Bangkok, Thailand, and should you buy one?
Price of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet in Bangkok is reasonable
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablets that I looked at in various shops at Fortune Town mall in Bangkok (the best place to buy any IT equipment) all ran around the same price — 14,900 baht or $480 at current exchange rates.
That, of course, was for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 3G Quad Band tablet — product number T-N5100 – and not for the cheaper priced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that comes with just Wi-Fi.
Prices in Bangkok vs the US and the UK
So, how does buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet in Bangkok compare to buying one in the US or the UK? On this brand, price-wise it’s so close compared to the US, the difference is merely negligible.
Where you can currently pick one up on Amazon for $470, you’ll pay just $10 more in Bangkok. That means, for those of you on vacation in Thailand and needing to buy a new tablet, if you want one for convenience now, you’ll pay just a few dollars more than you would do back in the US and a little less than in Europe.
But, for those of you who actually live in Bangkok, by the time you’ve bought the tablet from Amazon, had it shipped and chanced paying custom fees on it when it arrives in the country, you might as well buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet in Bangkok. It would be cheaper.
As for buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet in Bangkok compared to the UK, you’d be crazy not to buy one here. After all, you’d pay $480 in Thailand, and £380 or the equivalent of $594 in the UK. More than $100 more. Crazy, eh?
