Watch out for light leaks between the front glass and the frame. I received one with light coming out from the entire left side of the phone between the frame and front glass.

I run a Blackberry priv which has neither a good camera nor a great processing power. Display is great, but I was satisfied with Sony that I owned before. I care about great battery life.
I haven't handled the phone, but the review shows that it has very good battery, things you said, as well as a ton of other things. I didn't see anything negative from the review at all.
Now, reviews could be biased (not saying that it is here), but you have to agree that the hardware is excellent, probably better than anyone else is putting out anyway.
funny enough the low light pictures that are "flexing muscles" .. when you look at them side by side with the xperias "terrible pics" for example.. well... they have much less details.
WTF? I expected the note to be significantly better, not worse..

Another jealous pot calling the successful kettle black. Hard to think of something more mediocre than you.
I don't think the camera captures as much detail as the HTC U11.
In other news, Samsung is delaying the preorders from the previous loyal Note 7 owners who preordered the Note 8 through Samsung.com with bonus trade-in discounts so they can provide enough phones for the carriers/retailers to steal customers before the new Iphone is released.

As long as you wouldn't use extension memory via SD card slot it won't.

And so far that's supposed to have... moreBattery technology has remained the same for the past 20 years. Samsung has claimed that the battery now will be still optimal even after a year. Like how? I just do not believe on what their marketing is saying, and no way telling us how they have implemented some magical technology that has solved the retarding the battery degradation.
My conclusions have been from actual use and monitor, and literature pertaining how rechargeable batteries work and last. I stand by my observations at 12.5% drop in Screen On Time usage after over a month. Probably 20% by the second month. Even accelerated when you are fast charging all the time.

Another mediocre hyper overprised peace of jewelry from samsung.
[deleted post]if you place your phone face down (display close to table) that way one can pick it up while scanning is the best way
The location of finger print sensor is just fine easy to reach with left point finger as this device is for two hand, mobile phone on the left hand and Spen on the right.
My only complain is that the small battery and for deleting iR Blaster... Samsung is following IOS now, they dont listen to what their clients said...

Hahaha, it is funny and first to hear that!
No phone dares to compete with V series in terms of sound quality.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2017There are a few flaws ..
Dual edge screen
Speaker beside usb (... moreWell...I guess those are true. Again, may not be all that flawed. From YouTube videos, the monospeaker seemed very capable, quickcharge is replace by Adaptive fast charge which is very capable, and while I don't like their aspect ratio, I am not sure if it counts as a flaw. I actually didn't focus on the Selfie camera, as I have no use for it (in an effort to go against the crowd).
But...yeah...4K video thing and FPS is annoying.
It doesn't matter in the end though...I still like Sony design more and still crave physical keyboard. Otherwise, I could have bought this (or better yet, Note FE, which is a stunning looking phone).

Brighter shots mean bigger aperture and higher exposition.

Read the whole review and there is nothing to complain about the phone.
Well...except the fact that I like the omnibalance design from Sony (i.e. the brick) over the phones with rounded corners for some reason (people think I'm weird anyway).
