3: Huawei Mate 10
TheNeighbor, 19 Oct 2017And Mate 10 has no digitizer pen. He certainly loves his Huawei.Digitizer pen, that's all you can say against Mate 10?
Not worth with $1000 phone against $613 phone with much superior features.
TheNeighbor, 19 Oct 2017And Mate 10 has no digitizer pen. He certainly loves his Huawei.And Note8 needs additional accessory to cast PC mode on large monitor.
You really love spending more accessory with your inferior Note8.
Note 8.Beautiful phone,have had for few weeks,fastest on my network-wow espcially compared to my updated iphone 6s plus.(was holding out for the mate 10 or mate 10 pro )Samsung chip/Samsung display/Free screen if broken in first 12 months.Decent service for a change from Samsung from my experience.I am not a "fanboy"of any kind.Netflix on full resolution really good.Dont understand the bad.reviews about battery.Mine seems great.I was hesitant after note 7 problems but assumed Samsung quality control more imtense to avoid repeat.Fast charging great.Love the s-pen because I use.I have always like the edge feature.I have not bought the headset for vr yet.I enjoyed on the s7 edge.No AR...yawn oooh Ikea furniture in my loungeroom.I won't bash Apple as I have used both.Bixby is good for driving as was Siri to a point.Fantastic camera too.Only the one speaker but is ok.
Galaxy Note 8 features are so attractive, its digital stick working so smoothly.
Also now Note 8 FRP lock and google verification can be bypassed as well.
I took off the OtterBox Defender case tonight, and started using the Note8 as is without any cover. This just feels good to hold, however I know it will the glass will have a great chance of cracking, the metal frame dented dropped on a hard floor.
It's a shame to place even a minimal thin case on this thing like what came with the purchase in the box. As I'm swipe typing this, part of my palm is touching the curved side screen, having to stretch my thumb to the other side. Tapping the home button three times gives me the one handed usage mode.
I love the longer screen it offers as i have been using this as a jotting pad in a vertical position with OneNote to sync all my notes to my One drive.
Drawing/painting with the Note8 has been pleasurable. The tilt input and the ArtRage app have help me achieved some new tricks in virtual oil/opaque painting. Practically close to imitating the real medium without the fumes. I did a portrait of my colleague in 30 minutes:
Not a substitute to a real painting, if course. But being able to draw without paper is the strongest reason why I'm always going for a Galaxy Note over anything else.

Feeling insecure now that AI is here with Mate 10?
Imperator Neubaticus, 19 Oct 2017Lol as much as i want to like the mate 10, it's nowhere near the level of the note8. O really, how about PC mode without using another accessory like dock/DeX?
TCool, 19 Oct 2017I don't think so now that Huawei Mate 10 is here...Lol as much as i want to like the mate 10, it's nowhere near the level of the note8.

TheNeighbor, 19 Oct 2017What are you doing here comparing the Mate 8's only f/2.0 to the Note8's f/1.7? While I apprec... moreMy dear Neighbor, I am not comparing the camera of Note 8 with Mate 8. In fact I purchased the Note 8 for the best camera till now and the s-pen. I was only pointing to the features I miss from Mate 8 in the Note 8 and wishing Samsung includes them in their next update. Cheers!

Takin... moreHi TCool.
I already have the Note 8 and it has its own features, for which I purchased it. I still want the time saving features present in Mate 8. I 'm still holding the Mate 8 for that reason and wishing these features are added by Samsung. What I really miss is:
1. Step count and calories in one widget right on homescreen without needing to open app
2. Wifi signal strength in Notification bar
3. Renaming and, option for editing image with any app I choose right from the drop down menu.
4. Double tap for screenshot, much faster
5. Swipe Nav. bar with one hand to reduce screen size for one hand use. Its there on Note 8 but you really have to drag your finger that far.
6. Sounding Clock Alarm from phone switched off mode. Even old Nokias had it.
And I really miss the 4000 mAh juicer....
marq, 19 Oct 2017Yes Note 8 does that, it opens the camera app. But Mate 8 actually clicks a picture directly b... moreWhat are you doing here comparing the Mate 8's only f/2.0 to the Note8's f/1.7? While I appreciate the double to instant click a picture, no way to compare the Note8's much superb camera sensor.
