NS, 17 Aug 2018it's because there is a lot of improvement in Android OS and the up gradation of hardware. To me, year on year features on ios has improved much more than android. Sure Android P is good, but in Android M, N, O, i don't see a huge difference. I am not sure how Doze mode has helped, as the battery backup hardly improves by 2-3%. Most other improvements are gimmicky at best. reply from notifications, app notification controls etc,.. multitasking.. Like Samsung had this features 6 years ago, in Galaxy s4, note 2 etc. I switched from Iphone 4s to Galaxy Note 2 to Iphone 6s Plus to s6 edge plus and now to Google Pixel. To me, the gap in Camera from Note 2 to S6 and then to Pixel 2 is much smaller as compared in 4s, or 5s to 6s plus. All I am trying to say, the iphones change much more in hardware as well as software but still being stable, because of the less number of devices to work on, and thats how they get supported for very long. For android, the hardware differences year on year is less internally, the OS is also not that improved drastically every year. Due to huge number of devices, the support is very low from the manufacturer. That is why in my experience, if you buy an iphone, it is going to stay relevant for much longer , and you can get very good second hand cash
This thing is dirt cheap for us Indians, We here can even blindly buy 2800 dollar (Rs200,000) iphone .
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2018Because they want to sell note 10 by giving QC 3.0 to note 10Or perhaps they wanted to be conservative. The thing is though, being conservative isn't helping them
Bob007, 18 Aug 2018In India they either go for costly phone like iPhone and keep it for years or stick to budg... moreI don't see any Xiaomi users here changing his phone for every year.. people will use their phone atleast for 2 and half years ( sometimes more than that)
Walter C. Dornez, 17 Aug 2018Hmm, Quick Charge 2.0? Why not 3.0 or 4.0?Because they want to sell note 10 by giving QC 3.0 to note 10
In India they either go for costly phone like iPhone and keep
it for years or stick to budget phone and replace it every year ,with xiaomi and one plus capturing the Indian market for past few years ,samsung need to reduce the prices otherwise they are looking at huge loss

Hello Life, 17 Aug 2018Wowie, priced much better than Iphone X. Wish it would last as much as any iphone. Even the 6s... moreit's because there is a lot of improvement in Android OS and the up gradation of hardware.
Wowie, priced much better than Iphone X. Wish it would last as much as any iphone. Even the 6s Plus is not considered that old, whereas Note 5 and S6s are obsolete.
GovindRuby, 17 Aug 2018At Least The Indian Price Is Close To US Price.Because it is fully manufactured in the worlds largest mobile factory which is there in Noida, India. So no import tax which is 20% at the moment.
JOHN, 17 Aug 2018what its already in the us but the release date is on august 24th?It's on the pre-order pages everywhere in the US so I presume it will launch the same day as the 6/128 GB edition.
I see they state the shipping date of the 8/512 GB edition to two weeks after the 6/128GB ditto (September 5).
Stondec100, 17 Aug 2018We already did. The 512gb version comes with 8gb of RAM. what its already in the us but the release date is on august 24th?
john, 17 Aug 2018i wonder if we are gonna get the 8 gb ram here in the us?We already did. The 512gb version comes with 8gb of RAM.
It's cheaper than the price in Indonesia (about 90,000 inr for 512gb version if converted to current currency), but you also got a samsung smart tv if you bought it on pre order period
