I'm very happy to grab in Oman country soon.
I always like to purchase more memory smartphones
32Gb is not at all sufficient,
really sounds good to hear 64GB with 256GB expandable

Yes, a 128 GB or 256 GB internal would be a big deal. Plus the new UFS card slot would be great.
one more thing, it will be good to have internal space of at least 64GB or 128GB and higher space.
I have note 5 with 32GB is not enough at all for daily use and my office works, I need to purchase additional OTG..
***another option: portable SSD with 1TB or higher instead of OTG at affordable price***
Imperator Neubaticus, 10 Jan 2017Lol it's not about screen on time or how long your phone will last on a single charge. It's ab... moreAnd you're talking about your 6-year-old E7 with low RAM, low processor speed with only GSM/HSPA. I'm betting that's not even your main daily device. Of course it's likely not to overheat.
What Samsung did was to put in as much battery battery in a space with little to wiggle - all on the name of giving a perception of being thin. Higher processor, LTE, more connection points, more apps, social media alerts, and Android OS demands more power. And how thick IS your E7? More than 13mm with a 1200mAh battery.
Present day - all that power usage, tight space, fast charging really puts a strain to the battery. Batteries will need expanding space. Read about it. Explosive revelations.
I've already seen iPhones and iPods just have their batteries bloat outwards. I had a few regular batteries bloat after a year of heavy use, and all I do is get a replacement. Same tech and chemical composition with sealed batteries - now that inside a sealed updated Android phone. Not the now dead Symbian OS.
It's even hard to believe you have a fully 6-year-old Nokia E7, with NO issues of power retention without the battery being replaced all these years.
Get real. Even my old Sony phones had to have their batteries replaced every 2 years because present battery tech can have your rechargeable battery last 6 years.
I really do hope Note8 gets a replaceable battery system.
please what is wrong with you samsung
note8 couldn't get at least 25mp,4500mh battery.
if s7 couldn't get the same.
this is making me feel like to change the product.
htc is going to bring a 24 mega pixel camera smartphone with 13 mega pixel with it on the back ...how is it soppuse to a 12 megapixel one to be more popular
have a big screen and a more pixels on each camera and a more powerful proccessor than 835 and a loud stero speakers and a huge battery ....... then you my money
great news, I can't wait to have note 8, by the way chassis should make of stainless steel for something new but pen must come with it thanks.
I have had my Note 4 now for about 3 years. When I purchase a Note 8 (if they have a removable battery) I will put a new battery in my Note 4 and maybe even include a spare one prior to selling it. That should take me about 2 minutes and no special tools or potential damage to my phone. After I reset it, the buyer will have a phone that will be as good as new that will maintain a full charge and I will get top dollar for it. Who would buy a 3 year old phone with the original battery in it with no way of changing it out or confirming its condition.....not me. Like I said before Samsung makes GREAT phones....They just don't answer them when their customers call. The same goes for the Note 8.....Which one of the following 2 phones would you buy.....2 Year old Note 8 with original battery - Change out at your own risk and cost or.....2 Year old Note 8 with new battery and a spare one included. There is no risk of losing customers to Samsung if the battery is removable....However if it is not ??????.....Why take the risk. I do not hear anyone saying they will not buy a Note 8 if the battery is removable.

It's about longevity of the battery itself as well as its safety in every day use. And in all those years not once has the non-removable battery of my nokia e7 ever showed the slightest sign of being needed to be replaced or of being close to spontaneously catching fire. The point sailed way over your head. Your comprehension skills need polishing, my friend.
And again, we cannot conclude that the exploding note 7 battery was due to the fact that the battery was non-removable. The fact, however, is that non-removable batteries by nature are not any less safe than removable ones. It doesn't matter if samsung recalled the note 7 twice or a hundred times. Making the conclusion that employing non-removable batteries equals voila exploding note 7 and then trusting samsung less because of a flawed association IS misguided. Again, it is most prudent to wait for the official investigation result.
I am Leaving The Samsung Note Series. Opting for Removeable Battery with another Brand Smartphone! GOOD LUCK SAMSUNG!

Misguided? Why would they recall the Note7 TWICE, and end all production and selling? Explain that.
Samsung's attempt to do iPhone-like limitations and fragility like with the Note.5 has started me doubting about the "flagship" hardware they sell. I really tried with the Note7, and the lack of versatility with extended batteries I was used to with the Note 3 was something I had to endure for a better camera.
I think of smartphones as portable computers, and is the only gadget I carry without the need to charge during the day despite very heavy use.
DNeighbor, 06 Jan 2017I doubt it will be coming with 5000mAh. With the the exploding fiasco they had with Note7 (yea... moreI have a nokia e7 for 6 years now. Its battery is non-user replaceable. And up to now, i've never needed its battery replaced. We're well beyond the time when batteries are needed to be user-replaceable. Technology has advanced to the point that such a feature is now only a preference. In terms of safety, that's not where the problem lies. The iphone has never had a user-replaceable battery and other oems as of late have proven that such phones aren't at a higher risk of spontaneously combusting than those with removable batteries. Waiting for the official result of the note 7 investigation is most prudent. If you trust samsung less because of the latest unfortunate note, that's your right. I think it's misguided, but to each his own.

Imperator Neubaticus, 06 Jan 2017It'd be great if samsung decides to make the note 8 tout over 6 inches of screen real estate w... moreI doubt it will be coming with 5000mAh. With the the exploding fiasco they had with Note7 (yeah, I used it for 45 days), I can only hope it comes with a removable battery option. All batteries will degrade and expand - you can inspect them from time to time, or cycle between batteries. Just silly that they keep following iPhone trends and keep Samsung flagship phones even more fragile with glass backs and curved glass edges.
My trust towards Samsung has faltered. I'll wait for a few months until getting any of their devices to see for any explosive flaws. iPhones have the same problem so it seems with a report of an iPhone7 Plus exploding while being charged.
If Samsung is pushing for the trend of removing the earphone jack, then I'm losing more confidence with this company. I actually have been using BT accessories for audio, however, I really do not see it as logical.
I noticed too that Sony suddenly increased their BT audio devices by 50% than before. Rather silly to be riding on with the iPhone7 trend. What used to be $99 is $150, like the SBH54. My SBH52 had more functions at less than $100.
It'd be great if samsung decides to make the note 8 tout over 6 inches of screen real estate with the same dimensions as the note 7. 4k isn't bad as long as the battery is at least 5000mah (the a9 comes to mind). I'm down with 6gb of ram instead of 8 but please let there be 256gb rom. The s-pen was already awesome in the note 7 so they don't need to do too much in that area. Waterproofing is a nice addon as well as the iris scanner but i can do without the latter. Usb type c, latest exynos, and dual pixel camera and i'm a happy camper.
[deleted post]Agree mate. Soon will apple sell T-Shirts and coats with bitten apple for an overpriced prices.
In my country a 2009 Iphone 4 new one still cost 250 euro.
Thats just thievery.
