Jeez, calm down.
You'll be back to Android most probably.
I did the same 1 and a half month ago. I went with iPhone 7 after using Android since HTC Magic. I lasted 3 weeks with the iPhone 7 and returned it. Great phone but I could not get into iOS. App Store doesn't show reviews for all countries so many apps have 0 reviews, horrible decision from Apple. Searching something on the app store, then press home button, come back to app store 10 minutes later, the search results are gone and you have to tap on the search bar on top to restart your search. Android, I can leave it open for days in the background. This happens a lot in iOS in many apps, iPhone 7 used to close apps aggressively.
The notification bar when hidden does not show icons so you can't know if you have a new notification if you forget to check your notification bar. You can't see the date by just swiping down on notification bar, you have to swipe left (That will change with iOS 11 though). There were bugs in their simply home launcher, yes, bugs, after so many years, and only ONE launcher to optimize, there were bugs, sigh.. etc.
Everything was more complicated to do than Android.
It does look better than Android though and I'll miss that. Camera was worse than Android (I used an LG G5 and a Google Pixel at the same time and the Pixel camera is way faster and better).

My Galaxy S7 is around 69.6mm. iPhone 7 is 67.1mm.
iPhone 7 is way easier to hold (I used to own it). Especially since it's thinner.
Note8 is thicker than XZ Premium though but not by too much. It should still be easier to hold. There's a reason why it's taller than the XZ Premium lol, look at the display size.

So basically, they're upping the pricetag to 1kÂ€ / not converting dollar to euro ; the last one i wanted exploded !
0 Esim card, no innovation, and taking your loyal Note customer for fools.
Well joke on you, i'll buy l'iphone 8 at least, it won't have a decline in value as your phone as.
after all those years on android phone and tablet, i think : it's time to say good bye to android ; I've been on android since CupCake ; if xiaomi Mi mix 2 was sale in europe, i would have buy that. Farewell android, i didn't like much google service instant App forced install, still was fun !
samshitt scr*w you lowered battery mah, no software / OS upgrade even on product your still selling at full price and then giving no support.
i pray you'll get the same disastrous failure as your note 7

Same goes with phone cases.
My mom uses a Note5 and puts on a crappy, square-ish case (which takes away the comfort of curved back glass). What's really a point of buying a slim, shiny-looking phone but putting on a thick, non-color-matching case? Silicone, too, does well when you accidentally drop your phone.

Then I had to go off-Samsung due cause of money. Looking at the S8, it's amazing, but still can't live without the S Pen. I need the pen for jotting down quick notes (screen-off memo), Adobe-Photoshopping, doc signing, translating, air viewing stuffs, precise cropping/copy-pasting, and using the smart select feature.
I don't use the pen that much, FYI.
When you don't use the pen you'll think you would've better off with the S series, but once you start using the pen, you'll thank yourself for choosing a Note. That's just my personal experience.

That's a tablet. Not the same thing at all. And their are better Note tablets with S-Pen in that section then.
Try using logic next time.
