Samsung’s latest flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, launch today at carriers and retail stores across the United States (and globally). Availability of some models has already slipped to late April, so it seems Samsung has a hit on its hands and could be in for a successful bounce back from the Note 7 recall. And carriers are already bickering over which network the S8 runs fastest on.

Below you’ll find everything you need to know about how to purchase the Galaxy S8.
