MarcioReis, 25 Aug 2017The thing is, everybody is complaining but some of you will still buy it at that price tag. F... moreSamsung has been trying to match absurd iPhone pricing portfolio. Obviously they can easily bring the price down by $300 less if they weren't going to give all the freebies.
The thing is, everybody is complaining but some of you will still buy it at that price tag.
For 799e i got myself a pretty Hp Omen Gaming Laptop.
I got a Xiaomi Mi6 for 380e which has the snapdragon 835 dual camera setup.
total price 1179e +20e fees = 1200e
Samsung Note 8 costs 1199e here in Portugal.
There are some people that still say i should have gotten the samsung Note8. What a bunch of idiots. What's the use of having a snapdragon inside a 1200e phone if there aren't games that demand that much horsepower anyway. Clearly a overkill.
That dual camera trend seriously only improves the imagine quality marginely.
A phone is merely good for webrowsing, listening to music, taking a pict here and there, calls and texting. You need a 1200e phone to do that?
Keep in mind if you buy this phone it just keeps getting pricier and pricier every year. In 3 years expect phones to carry a price tag of 1400-1500e, That's crazy.
DNeighbor, 23 Aug 2017Haha, wireless charging needs more energy, slower than regular charging, and kills the battery... moreI think you are looking wayyy too much into this.
I was going to stop reading after the part about 300-500 charge cycle, simply because I have a 3 year old Xperia Z2 with sealed battery way over the 500-th charge and working fine (knock on wood).
However, out of respect, I read all of your post.
Luxor, 25 Aug 2017$400 for a SD835 flagship device is overkill. Especially from a major brand. Nokia 8 with less... morePrecisely! And fact is there's a phone for everyone out there. Blu would suit most bitching about little things.
Samsung I dont know what you guys did but even though the screen is amazing you played yourself with the Fingerprint scanner again UGLY,WASTED SPACE,NOT ERGONOMICALLY FRIENDLY!!!!
Wow what an awesome device! Bigger screen, hungry processor with a smaller battery. Is this a joke! Price tag at $1000. Lol
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2017Glorified tablet. No excuse for the insane amount of money asked. Should be no more than $400. $400 for a SD835 flagship device is overkill. Especially from a major brand. Nokia 8 with less feature and same chipset cost $700. Even Sony Xperia X with SD650 cost around $549. Not to mentioned Oppo R11 with SD660 cost higher than $400. If you looking for high specs and low price you should go with the cheapest SD835 device right now which is Xiaomi Mi6 at $362. Stop asking for the impossible. Only chinese brand can offer such low price.
The only thing NOT NICE about this phone is the price tag. I can buy the best laptop for this price and it is ridiculous to be E1000. The only other thing is the non-removable battery; I want to control the battery action.
For over $1000 it better be packed with a more powerful processor than any phones on the market. I know the SD 835 is still top notch but its been kinda dated already. There are a lot of phones with the same specs for 2/3 or even half the price. Those extra features aren't worth that much
Anonymous, 25 Aug 2017I think pricing a phone $1000 is crazy. In Norway its $1270 in every retailer. Come on, a phon... moreNote8 has minimal improvements, and buying outright in cold cash of $1000 is as silly as getting an iPhone with the same price... ok more silly for an iPhone since it has less features.
This is coming from a Note7 user - most of Note8's feature were on the Note7; artificial bokeh will wear out as this is already with the Google camera; 2x telephoto is not something as exciting and as useful; 64Gb capacity with no mention of a 128Gb being regularly sold; 3300 mAh battery capacity will NOT have a better longevity than an S8+'s 3600 mAh; S Pen pressure sensitivity input is the same 4096 level; and the gimmicks of animated glowing doodling isn't so magical. This is just a Note7 version 2.
I'm interested in getting a Note with a great camera - yes, only the regular camera (not with a zoom), and with an S Pen. Those are the two things I'm looking for other than an AMOLED screen. Note8 can answer those two things, that I can admit. It is a tool, a very expensive one to have.

I think pricing a phone $1000 is crazy. In Norway its $1270 in every retailer. Come on, a phone is obsolete in a year, lets be real. Greedy to a point thats just ridiculous. So in a few years the price of a flagship will be $2000? A backlash is awaiting for sure.
Anonymous, 24 Aug 2017The problem in this case is that Samsung continues the same mistake: two similar models note 8... morecan you tell me the price of the note 8 . and when it will be launched in usa
Super Dave 01, 24 Aug 2017: Slightly better camera and 0.1" larger than the Samsung Galaxy S8+. But why the smaller batt... moreEvery extra mAh forced into a given volume takes a bite out of the cycle count, which may be why some brands can advertise huge numbers, on batteries likely to be dead after a few hundred cycles. Also, given the way of the seven, they're probably playing it VERY safe this time. Rather sell a few percent less than have ONE fire.
