    Sorry but I'm sick of reviewers saying the camera touchscreen button combined with the zoom function is bad. It's common sense that you can use your fingers to pinch in and out of zoom on the screen duh!!! Typing with a note 8 in my hand!

    If it just weren't so darn big, I'd be tempted. Since I have a hand tremor, the pen would be useless for me. I did, however use one on my Palm devices. The old has miraculously become new.

    Same here. I have been a Notehead since the Note 2, and cried like a little bitch when I had to give up my Note 7. Welcome home.

    I don't use the S Pen alot on my Note 8 either but I must confess that having it is really cool and there are times when it truly does come in handy. It is a nice plus.

    Yeah but 9 months to a year in a big software update breaks all the functionally of the stylus apps. And you cant backup and restore older save states. And i talking about samsung official apps like the IR blaster remote control and the other app lets you use the pen as a remote for the camera and other stuffs.

    I don't get how the S8 and Note 8's fingerprint scanners are placed badly, I find it perfectly fine on my S8+

    If i have the s8, can i trade it in for the note 8 with that Samsung deal?

    I've been so used accessing the heart rate monitor on the s7 edge that the fingerprint placement isn't that bad. I've used an honor 8 for months on end too.

    I get 0.5% battery drain an hour on standby so this phone basically lasts forever for me.

    I have no idea why the fingerprint scanner is an issue. I can reach it easily without having to adjust my hand in anyway. I advise anyone interested in this phone to hold it in your hand yourself. The speaker is loud. This is my first note and I am sold! I love this phone. The best period.

    Thank you for your Review.
    I'm a Manager at the Four seasons hotel and I use My Note 8 at work everyday along with the S pen! That being said, I find that I can't live without the S Pen.
    Thank you

    I'd take a headphone jack over dual speakers anyway

    I hope there will be a Note Mini. To be sized as the regular S8. Big screen + one handed usability + S-Pen = PERFECT PHONE

    I want to buy note 8 but my experience with android phones haven't been so good, especially when it comes to smoothness. I experienced the phone would lag if I had more than 1000 pics. Right now I have more than 8000 pics and 400 videos and around 200 apps on my iPhone x and it runs smoothly! So how does it fare when you download a lot of apps and have stored a lot of videos and apps? Thanks

    Iphone 6 no nfc
    Iphone 7 no headphone jack or physical home button
    Iphone se no wireless charging
    Iphone 8 no fast wireless charging
    Iphone 9 no phone
    Iphone x no home button

    The screen cutout is pretty top notch on iphone x though

    Like if you grinned at that
