    Let's share the excitement. I'm staying up till the Samsung pre-order link goes live, who else. Everyone is welcome in this thread if you have something to add or just want to chat about the new phones. This is your one stop shop for pre-orders, order confirmations, shipping notifications, the holy grail of device deliveries. Oh, and we can't have a thread like this without unboxing videos and first impressions.

    If you have something good I'm going to add it to the OP here. I'll also be watching the Accessories, Cases, Chargers, and More thread and adding anything interesting over there into this thread.

    So let's have fun and get this party started.

    I bet you guys are excited. Last time I ordered and waited was for the HTC Incredible.. and the wait was near impossible to take.
    Day 1. I'm frantically hunting for cases, chargers, and possibly a new car mount that will do Qi charging. I will survive.

    The golden days, lol
    Well, looks like that turned out to be a glitch in the system.

    Interesting, but hey, they want to reward you for being on your game :)

    I wish I had ordered from Samsung so I could have spent the promo money immediately.

    I'll make a note here for anyone else that ordered from Samsung before the pre-order email came out. The $25 promotion expires on 3/31, and the $100 promotion for pre ordering the phone will come via email 14-21 days after you get the phone. With an expected arrival date of 3/5 or 3/6 depending on your shipping, that puts the credit email at around 3/20 - 3/27, or very close to the expiration of the $25 discount code.

    I didn't want to risk forgetting about the $25 so I pulled the trigger on the 25W Wireless Portable Battery since I was going to get one anyway. I'll post in the accessories thread when I get it, as well as an update when I can play with it with the S20.

    Nice! I ordered like 7 things already, going to order a couple more Samsung items.

    What all did you order NightAngel? Inquiring minds what to know. If you get the Samsung car mount, it's pretty sweet. It's made to mount about any way you can imagine... to the windshield, air vent, dash etc. It's made to accept about any phone known to man. It is not a charging unit so I hope you didn't impulse buy like I did.

    Car mount has never interested me. Not since I have up on driving for uber and Amazon. Lol

    Samsung leather case, wireless charger, car charger, lol. Backup case

    I only use a car mount when using navigation, but like @olbriar said, it's nice to offset the battery drain on long trips.

    I've found myself using my car mount more that ever after the purchase of my Note 10. It is just tall enough that it is impossible to remove from my pocket in a sitting position. I rarely feel the need to navigate but the hands free mode of the Sammy in car mode is great for taking calls.

    My uConnect handles calls and texts well enough, so in the winter my phone is in my jacket pocket and in the summer it's in a cup holder.

    Now I'm getting antsy for the big zoom on the S20. I wonder how much better of a shot I could have gotten with the 20.
    As much as I could zoom with my Pixel. Pileated woodpecker.

    If possible, I'd like to get their email as well. I review lots of stuff, and with my S20+ coming next week, I need new "stuff" for it.
    Shoot me a PM! It's nothing top secret, just don't want to blast them. I literally bought an item from them for wife and got a generic email offering items to test.
    I remember it like it was yesterday.

    You mean today? lol

    But I feel ya. LOVED the anticipation of the OG Incredible. That was a great thread, and the reason I'm a member here.
