None with stylus, LG tried but discontinued it's stylus phone line, I've been using note Samsung line since 1, need stylus for Note takings, no other phone will do for me, been waiting for 8 so eagerly, tired of using Note 4, wanted to but 7 after skipping a year of 5 and look what happened 😁 😉
As I said, this is definitely an excellent news (rumor), that the Note 8 will probably be the first to include the more polished SD836 instead of the SD835. But unfortunately on the other hand, there's the opposite negative/bad news(rumor, leak) too, that probably the Note 8 won't include the embedded fingerprint scanner in the display. Needless to say that hopefully it will turn out to be inaccurate, in other words, let's hope that finally the Galaxy Note 8 among other high-end specs as well, will include both, the SD836 & the fingerprint embedded in the display, etc. And the new Quick Charge 4+ as well. Let's hope.
JF69, 10 Jun 2017Fingerprint scanner should never be placed under fragile glass, who's not so bright idea was that.well you know how apple are doing that very same thing... with what could be an all glass front.... something tells me insurance will be a necessity not a luxury
What is the best smartphone like Samsung Note series among other smarphones. ? Should comes with "STYLUS PEN"...
Samsung very laggy.open data and everything app runs in the background eating up ram and data then lags.cant even uninstall these crap apps
Marorun, 09 Jun 2017Exynos is better at battery life and benchmark.
Real life usage its crap ( beside battery ... moreI can agree. My LG G5 is definitely one of the smoothest and fastest phones I ever owned. Smoother than my V20. For some reason, my V20 with the same SD820 chip might hiccup from time to time but only a slight. Hardly noticeable.
G5 still my favorite followed by both Pixel and V20. The irony is the sims are in those two phones while the G5 is used as a multimedia device. I like my iPhone SE more than my S7e.
note 4 was the last best note series. i will stay with my note 4 until sumsung bring back removable battery option
JF69, 10 Jun 2017Fingerprint scanner should never be placed under fragile glass, who's not so bright idea was that.Why are you so worried about the fingerprint scanner under "fragile glass". Gorilla glass is plenty strong enough to resist pressure from fingers. Dosent everyone already press on the glass, hence touch screen?
Not interested in snapD .... more interested in Exynos
and also the fingerprint scanner location if not under the glass
and also TRUE dual 4G like the LG V series
bring back dedicated SD slot NOT lame IP68 water resistant
eltee, 09 Jun 2017its a damn shame they couldn't manage to get the fingerprint scanner in the screen, Lord knows... moreFingerprint scanner should never be placed under fragile glass, who's not so bright idea was that.
Got It, 09 Jun 2017didnt get the s8 due to knowing the note will be out soon, fingerprint not in the screen dissa... moreWhy would you want the fingerprint scanner in the screen, whoever thought of that crazy idea is an IDIOT, the fingerprint scanner in the back is just fine and it should be under the camera lens. The fingerprint scanner should not be part of the screen in any way shape or form, I can give a plenty of reasons why, why would you place the fingerprint scanner under fragile glass, it makes no sense, these companies trying to outdo one another do to the over saturation of the smartphone market are losing the plot, how about making the phones a bit thicker with a bigger battery for starters.
SD836, 09 Jun 2017Thank goodness for the SD836 in this new Note 8. The SD835 just didn't cut the mustard! You can't be serious, LMAO.
Samsung, 09 Jun 2017better have a removable battery That will NOT happen.
Marorun, 09 Jun 2017Beside battery my LG G5 simply kill the S7 exynos.
Sorry but even speed test show it on yo... moreWhat are you talking about? Battery is its strong suite. Zero charge time (swap it) and infinite autonomy (by carrying a tiny spare).
I bought G5 *for* its superior battery , not despite it .... God!
Marorun, 09 Jun 2017I take a SD soc over a exynos soc anyday.
Here a simple comparison.
Take a S7 or S7 edg... moreHahaha... This kind of comment is one that I never bored looking at...
Why? Because to prove their claim, they said "A is better than B", to prove their claim, they gave "facts" based on "arranged" apps, then VOILA, "A is TRULY, NO QUESTION ASKED, better than B" scheme.
This kind of scheme is the kind that ALWAYS posted on Youtube, which later become a "holy book" for many to buy a smartphone.
IRRELEVANT & INVALID
Now I'll explain the reasons:
-) Different brand.
-) Different os developer.
In Samsung, the os developer develop TouchWiz which for some people feels "laggier" in gaming for unknown reason (might be OS bug, incompatibility, etc).
In LG, the os developer try "different flavor" for each Optimus OS in G series (since G3, if I'm not wrong).
In your case, G5 is indeed better than S7 series, OS-wise. Some people said G5 OS rivaled Sony's when in comes to gaming experience.
BUT, when it comes to productivity & lifestyle, S series wins hands down. They included office apps, note-taking apps, S health, etc. No brand can beat Samsung on this point.
-) Different SoC & other hardware components.
Different SoC designers and hardware components means EVERYTHING.
ex. Cortex A53 in MT6752 have better performance than ALL SD61x series, the same case can be applied to GPU too (Mali T760 MP2 vs. Adreno 405).
Samsung's AMOLED display have better color reproduction than EverDisplay's LTPS-AMOLED in Redmi Pro or LG's OLED in Mi Note 2.
Intel LTE modem vs Qualcomm vs. Samsung vs. Huawei have different peak speed too.
So, NO WAY u could easily said "A is better than B" just because gaming experience in A is "smoother" than B which u claim "lag fest" without considering many variables first.
IF u STILL want to compare, AT LEAST use two or more products from the same brand, with the same (at least similar) SoC (since that is the MINIMUM requirements for comparison test, different hardware components could be tolerated).
e.g Samsung S5 (SD805) vs. Note4 (SD805) or Note4 (Exynos5433) vs. Note4 (SD805)
fewer the variables, more RELEVANT & VALID ur arguments.
