The Samsung Galaxy Note II has been out for a while now and it’s been high on demand. I was surprised to find out the price varies between KD 167 all the way upto KD 205 when I passed by the mobile stores at Sharq. The warranty that comes with the device affects the price. Some warranties cover only software, some cover both hardware and software.
A cheap warranty like Redlight gets you the phone for around KD 170 while a good warranty like Al Babtain which are the authorized distributors of Samsung in Kuwait will increase the price to around KD 185. Amazon is selling the Galaxy Note II for $649 (~KD 182) so you’re getting a pretty good deal locally.
