Why with Samsung S7 and S8, the price that needs to be paid between the large and medium tabs has a very big difference? Compare to other phones and with iPhones, it is ridiculously way too much. And Samsung is Samsung and iPhone is iPhone. Please answer this. Thanks

How about you explain what you mean, instead of us having to guess?

Getting a phone on Tab Large = big activation credits. Right now the S7 and S8 have about $300 in activation credits.

It's simple, really. Koodo profits the most from the most expensive (Tab Large plans). As such, larger activation credits are sometimes offered as incentives for people to sign up for these plans. If you're paying less up front, you'll pay more over the course of the term.

The point of the separation of tab and plan was for clarity.  With these activation credits, things are getting murky again

The large tab was the reason I switched from my iPhone to Samsung S8+.  The activation credit to buy was very attractive.. for my own offer, I paid @$50 out of pocket and I had a new S8+.  Discount on my monthly plan, plus a battery pack thrown in.  If not wouldn't have upgraded to that nice of a phone.  This is why I stick with Koodo, had nothing but good experiences with this company.
