Most smrtph1s r gud on their own but they do not justify their asking price. if note8 for $160, then its almost perfect.
The.Chosen-One, 02 Nov 2017Samsung is becoming another apple in terms of prices, but at least their mid range phones are ... moreOnly the note8 comes even close to the high price it touts. V30 comes next. But the pixel 2 xl, don't even think about it.
The.Chosen-One, 02 Nov 2017Samsung is becoming another apple in terms of prices, but at least their mid range phones are ... moreI agree, altough I have to say that the Note8 offers a lot more for less money (still too expensive) than an iPhone X.
tried it a couple of times in nearby store. the experience this device gives sort of grow on me, even though i was being skeptical and disliked it at first. the tall build is great, since i have not-so-big hands to hold wide smartphones. the rounded screen side edges didn't trigger any unwanted input (at least, for as long as i tried using it), different from what most people would worry when seeing a phone with thin side bezels. if it's not for the high price, i will probably buy it. but then again, i prefer my daily phone to have a smaller overall size

Others like LG brought steep prices with cut corners. And the Google Pixel 2 XL is so over priced with too many compromises it is the iPhone of Android.
However yes. The prices are still ridiculous regardless when it comes to any of these devices.
Samsung is becoming another apple in terms of prices, but at least their mid range phones are still a good buy...
I'm impressed the snapdragon lasted longer in video playback. It might be only 30 minutes but that's 30 minuted longer as opposed to the issues few hours less.

Whatsapp and Messenger Chat are crasshing
Anyone knows why?
What do you expect from Facebook?
Security and privacy? Definitely not.
That aspect ratio is killer for me.
I just dont like the long skinny mobile.
To those who already own one.
What was the available storage out of the box?

Samsung again hold the crown for most innovative design of this Era

Untill now everything works fine
This could be one of the most advanced phones ever. But regarding looks... the S8+ (not the s8 which is good looking but a bit narrow looking-overall, for my taste) still trumps the note 8 for me. Look at the picture of the s8+ on the conclusion page of this review. It is so joyously beautiful :) Not just me quite a few other people like the s8+ design over the current note design.
So I hope samsung keeps the above design for the S9+ series too while keeping this design for the next note. (as some people seem to like this design more than that ). I hope they dont mix up both the designs. Two slightly different design languages for two different phone lines to keep both the camps happy :). If they want to make a completely bezel less phone for the S9 series i hope they make a different phone for it. Like a 6.4 or even a 6.6 inch phone? (because a 6.6 inch phone with the two top bezels even as thin as the bezels the s8 series phones have now.... could be 'very tall' and unwieldy for a lot of people).
Apple made two different designs for different phone sizes of the same phone line, so why shouldnt (or cant?) samsung?
