a pathetic launch of the a73 by samsung south africa, no stock in stores, no accessories
SAMSUNG A PROPER LAUNCH OF THIS DEVICE WOULD HAVE EARNED YOU RESPECT BUT NOW SAMSUNG IS JUST ANOTHER SUPPLIER THAT HAS NO ADDED VALUE FOR THEIR PRODUCTS
Are there any independents or other outlets selling the phone @Neil_za ?
Unfortunately sometimes with new launches if demand exceeds supply then delays can happen.
You might be able to set up a Stock Alerts option via the online Samsung Shop Site too.
Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra 256Gb in Phantom Black.
The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.
@Neil_za: I have had a look into this for you, and there does appear to be some stock available for the Galaxy A73 on the Samsung South Africa website. To find out more, please check out the link below.
I got a device on Saturday but none of the retailers which includes the Samsung store had any stock available on 22/4/2022 which was the international launch day. No accessories were available either, however when the A53 was launched stock and accessories were available and the excuse that the A73 is not a popular device is hogwash.
BTW the protect the battery feature stops charging at 84%.
