I pre ordered on the 12th of Feb. My tracking status says despatched by the 9th and it should have been delivered today but it has not been despatched yet and nothing from dpd. Anyone else had the same?

S20 Ultra expected tomorrow, pre-ordered 27th Feb, had to contact Samsung myself to find out my order is delayed, no mention of how long the delay is, nothing about the free buds, nothing about refunding the extra postage I've paid for or anything about compensation- only thing it contained was - 'DPD will send you a message when its ready to be delivered'.
Purcahsed Galaxys since the S3 was launched but this'll be the last Samsung phone for me - £1200 and I have to chase Samsung - terrible service, Coronavirus doesn't stop emails being sent out advising of delays and new delivery dates.
Sadly I'm on the same page as the last guy. I've been constantly checking on the status of the orders and at least they have updated their status a day or two after the delivery date is extended. So far, it has been delayed 4 times and I keep waiting week after week. So sadly after today's delay, I cancelled my order. There are a lot of good phones out there.
I respect the fact that they threw in a 10% discount right before I confirmed that I wanted to cancel my pre-order. But at 1600 dollars for this phone and this bad experience, I cannot hang. I was already struggling with not handing down my S10+ to my wife that I just got last year just to bring the price down. These phones are getting too expensive even for my tastes. $1000 was a high price but this? impossible with this type of experience.
