Why do you compare 6.3" screen phone with 3300mAh battery
to a 5.7" screen phone with a 3500mAh battery?
TheNE1GHB0R, 16 Sep 2017Finally, the GSM Arena review is out for the Note8. The very first thing I always look at is t... moreI don't need to carry power banks. I carry micro USB charging cable only. No bulk and lighter than extra battery. Chargers are everywhere, why do you need to make it hard for you?
Finally, the GSM Arena review is out for the Note8. The very first thing I always look at is the battery performance.
89 hours endurance time for the Note8, versus 90 hours for the Note7 Exynos versions.
10:20H (Note8) web browsing versus 11:08 (Note7) which means Note8 has 48 minutes less;
14:34H (Note8) Video Playback versus 16:46H (Note7) which means Note8 has 2:12H less.
S8+ has 1:56H more Web Browsing time; 1:29H more Video Playback.
So, that 6% of smaller battery difference (-200mAh) for the Note8 with a slightly larger and brighter screen compared to its 3500mAh siblings are factors to the slightly lesser performance for such a fully packed features smartphone. I guess the updated CPU did not make a big difference.
My personal experience with the Note7 for 45 days has given me only some 4 hours SOT, over a 9-hour stretch with bluetooth connected with a wireless earphones with some 30% left. Which means the battery will only last some 12 hours with the Note7, and even less with the Note8. Looks like I'll be really be plugging in every afternoon before going home.
Way to go with people who keep saying sealed batteries with thin profiles are the future and it's a progressive direction. I say go thick and give us 5000 mAh with an expected heft so our usage is really all day, not to be carrying powerpacks/chargers/charging pads/extra phones so we can top up in the middle of the day.
Sigh, my Note8 arrives within 2 weeks, and I'll be ready to carry the extra bulk of a 30,000 mAh powerbank AGAIN.
TheNE1GHB0R, 16 Sep 2017Yawn. I bring one phone.One phone, one iPad, one E-reader, one SP4, one tab S plus two extra batteries.
I don't need extra batteries. I don't like doing the acrobatic process of switching off the phone and changing the battery then waiting for minutes for the phone to power up.
That's a waste of time.
TheNE1GHB0R, 16 Sep 2017Yawn. I bring one phone.Sorry my mistake.
You bring one phone and one iPad, one E-reader, one SP4 to compensate the battery of your phone.
[deleted post]If Apple did not state it in their keynote, all iPhones record video with MONO audio. Useless even with boasting 4k recording 60 fps.
We are here because the Note series offer more than what a mere iPhone can offer, and yes, the Note8 with a recent update can record 4k at 60fps. We have been using OLED screens for the longest time, Wacom pen technology, expandable memory, can open our phones with one look.
Basically, you'd be spending over $1000 for the ability for Animojis. Right, you also need AR... which are already present in some Android brands.
[deleted post]Sorry boy, this is Samsung page.
I think you are at a lost.
Try Apple page and you can find iPhone X there, that is the right place to flood your spam, not here.
[deleted post]stop spamming man, nobody cares about iPhone X.
new iPhones offer nothing new to gadget industry, all their "new" features have been used by many brand/devices over the years.
people would rather spend their money for something else.
TheNE1GHB0R, 15 Sep 2017Zerolemon is coming out with a power case pack with 5500 mAh that could top up the Note8's bat... more8500 mAh only?
I have 20000mAh power bank that can charge your iPad, Note 7, Note 3, E-reader and other gadgets that you always bring.
No need to confine myself to a battery that can charge only one phone with only 8500 mAh capacity.

TheNE1GHB0R, 14 Sep 2017It's just amazing. Now you get 4k recently, and you'd quickly learned that 4k 60fps will quic... more"Personally, I only record on 1080p because it's the practical size that I can fast upload and smaller for size to share. This is even if I have 4k capable device."
Yes, 4K is huge file size. But the quality (detail) is impressive. It is a bit like taking photos on 2MP camera and then a few years later regretting you did not have photos taking at say 12MP.
Yes, I have a 4K TV and I watch 4K clips on YouTube. It is impressive. It is the future.
Don't waste your money on a VR headset or a smart watch, instead 4K is the future.
Broadcasters are slow.....
Just got my note today. I like everything about the phone (really great) except the placement of the finger print scanner which is a known issue and hopefully, Samsung will correct this next year. At least, it still has a fingerprint scanner unlike the trend in the new iPhone 10/X. However, there is still the iris scanner or if you have a gear smartwatch or gear fit watch connected, you can use smart unlock. That means as long as your watch is within the range of the phone, you can unlock the screen simply with a swipe.
I am in Canada looking for note 8 dual sim, can someone please advice me if both sims can be active at the same time in this phone? and where to buy is?
Zerolemon is coming out with a power case pack with 5500 mAh that could top up the Note8's battery by 100% charge. Best alternative than carrying chargers/powerbanks/charging pads. No pricing yet. The design has almost no more extended bottom chin, UNLIKE what they did with the S8 duo models - made them more longer. Thank you, Zerolemon. Definitely getting this as soon as it's commercially available.
Then after two months or so, they usually would put out a 8500 mAh capacity power case that could charge some 150+%. Getting that as well. If you top up your battery to about 60-90% whenever you can, it can prolong the sealed battery with a more number of charge cycles in the long term. This is one way you can without really plugging in.
Check it out, fellow Note8 owners:
