For that price one is not only buying a phone but a brand name too. In that case I'd rather go with Apple.
Drone, 27 Jun 2017Paying 1k just to make phone call and carry on your pocket cheap knockoff chinese also can do that..If you just need a phone to carry around and make phone calls, do buy a cheap one. A Note is more for us who [think we] need a powerful pocket computer that does a bit of everything.
Should, like my current Note 3, a Â€1k Note8 last around four years, then that's Â€0.68 a day.
mark, 26 Jun 2017but Samsung does not guarantee that your note 8 will get an update after 5 years. While apple ... moreI am not sure Apple guarantees that, but you can be sure each update will slow your iPhone and put you at risk of operating problems or bricking. As most users change their phones after 2 years those updates mean little to most people.
Apple understands the delicate balance between simplicity and capability. They usually make the right call when it comes to eliminating some capabilities for the sake of simplicity, while most players in the industry tend to pack capabilities at the expense of usability.
Oncom, 24 Jun 2017Yes of course, you can carry PC in your pocket and make phones calls. Paying 1k just to make phone call and carry on your pocket cheap knockoff chinese also can do that..
I agree with:
- market value of Samsung phones depreciates more than 50% after less than 1 year
- customer service from Apple superior to Samsung's
- my S5 from 2014 still works perfectly, it's very fast, and has regular updates
- in terms of functionality and features, Samsung phones are above Apple now
- camera is amongst the best
- my actual S7 Edge is just perfect, battery can last 2 days, camera is awesome, screen is awesome, speed is amazing, features are really good
- I'm not buying a phone to make $1000 profit after one year
WickedWilly, 26 Jun 2017While I think the price are too high too, there is a big difference between Samsung and Apple.... morebut Samsung does not guarantee that your note 8 will get an update after 5 years. While apple guarantee an update good for 5 years or better. and by the way customer service of apple is way better than Samsung..
Resale value of Samsung is too cheap.
Why is Samsung persisting with this aspect ratio.
Not interested in a super tall skinny mobile with dead space.
I refused an upgrade to the S8 because I just do not like the mobile feel.
Was hoping the Note would actually continue with the better aspect ratio.
Reality: Samsung galaxy note 8 $999 after 6 months its value is below $500
Vasrass, 25 Jun 2017Way too overpriced, even if it comes with 4k screem, 8 GB RAM and 256GB of flash. Samsung is b... moreWhile I think the price are too high too, there is a big difference between Samsung and Apple. Samung gives you the latest designs and functionality, iPhones have outdated designs and are specced no better than mid-ranged phones.
with that price, they better put in a remote detonated bomb in it so just in case it gets stolen you can detonate it remotely XD!!! that's crazy expensive!
Nice joke :), 25 Jun 2017Omg. Do you currently use an android phone? if you use android, you should know that the Andro... moreyou must know that OnePlus 3/3T is already running 7.1.1 with oxygen OS while S8 is still running 7.0 with nothing and you commenting negative on getting updates on OnePlus or about its future proof?? what future do the note series have apart from getting blast everywhere ;)
faak!!!! that price is insane... goodluck note 8... party hard... have a blast... oops ;)
100 dollars/euros more than S8+ for a comeback phone ? That's way too much. Samsung phones have more features, I agree, but they are always half tested. S8 had a fingerprint sensor location design flaw. They don't think it through. They do their testing in Production environment. After all these years, they still didn't learn from Apple.
MrElectrifyer, 24 Jun 2017$250 was the price of the gear fit 2 here in Canada. Price of the Note 7 was $1000 CAD.Take a look at the enormous advertisements expenditure by Samsung. All this activities cost money and where to find someone to pay for them? From the buyers of samsung products. So willing sellers, willing buyers. Don't like to pay more? Think of alternatives which suit you. Just that simple.
The price component may have included the write off costs of Note 7 US$225 and the mark up price of US$700. So let those with plenty of cash deal with the phone, I am sticking to simple Asus Zenfone 3 552 for simple phone tasks and surfing internet.
Way too overpriced, even if it comes with 4k screem, 8 GB RAM and 256GB of flash. Samsung is becoming like Apple. Pure robbery.
ikke, 24 Jun 2017I am not whining about the price because I cannot pay it, according to you. It is all about wh... morePhones will become more and more expensive. That's a fact men.
If you go back to the very first galaxy note and turn the price of it in the current money, you 'll get close to the note 8's pricing.
king wicked, 24 Jun 20176 GB ram... nonsense
when oneplus 5 would be 8gb Ram. Small sized Battery. Wrongly positio... moreOmg. Do you currently use an android phone? if you use android, you should know that the Android operating system can't even fully make use of 6gb ram and oneplus release 8gb ram, what a waste of money buying the extra 2gb ram. You might say that 8gb ram will make the phone future proof, but sadly oneplus has a "good" reputation of not releasing new android updates to their phones 😂😂. Waste money for 2gb ram.
Glass back? Wireless charging dude, and the phone would also be much lighter with glass. U break the back glass?can't blame anyone. That's your fault for not properly taking care of your phone.
You want 8gb ram? Go ahead buy the iphone 7 plus rip off. I'm not stopping you :)
