Pls help me to decide, should I replace my 7.7 with this Note 8.0? I'm considering to buy this because of the S-Pen. Would it be practical? Thanks

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-07-24 23:55 from fsV9 - click to readThere are quite a few things to take into consideration:
1. Do you want a small device or do you want a tablet to carry around as your office?
2. If the answer is "smaller"device, then of course it's the S4..... if the answer is "Tablet" then, obviously, the Note is the answer.
3. The two has the same chipset and OS and will perform similarly.
4. If you like the bigger unit, then you're going for a smart and effective office to carry around. I have one, and it is ideal to run your business from. Use bluetooth headset for phone, PLEASE not the large device to talk onto in public!!
The smaller device is not as efficient for browsing, internet banking etc. but still is nice to have as phone, with those functions as option.

i think this phablet is the best one. i bought LUMIA 920 and it's really sucks. With all limitations i can't attach my email with documents such as pdf, office by replying a documents. if i start one new email i can only attach one office's file and i think it is not for helping your bussiness like the ads said. Even my blackberry can did it better. Now my lumia just for texting and calling, NO MORE i can do with that phone.

But if i'm talking about this note 8, not only it's about android which open source but it also gives you any freedom to do what your want. The multi tasking phone is Note 8. you can call your buds, while texting, and do some your work on polaris office, sync to GOOGLE DRIVE and SKY DRIVE if really needed to your office, even you can sketch your imagination on S note, evernote whatever. Note 8 probably one of Samsung's masterpiece. It does really satisfy me.

If you are really consider to use windows phone, i recommend you to use this note 8. It does really help your bussiness. You don't have to use lync or skype anymore. FYI, skype on WP8 is beta version. iOS and android version is better one. it's really push notifications ( i have compared skype on android and WP8 ).

I'm not an android worshipper, or WP hater. I tried to love WP since O2 made the phone and bought Lumia to think it can replace my blackberry. But i made a wrong choice.
