Soon, smartphone buyers will realize that phone upgrades every year or two is absolutely a waste of money and expensive smartphones do not deserve their price. Smartphone development has reached a plateau. Most people really only use phones for photo/video capture, Facebook, YouTube and some online browsing and gaming in addition to calling and texting. Any improvement in photo/video quality, processor speed, screen technology, phone unlock method, etc, doesn't add anymore significant improvement to the phone's usability, convenience and overall user experience. There is no reason smartphones should not have the same upgrade cycle as PC's (5-6 years) and more so, no reason why phones should cost more than good desktop PC's. Consumers/phone buyers are led to believe by phone manufacturers that phones need to be replaced every year or two when in reality, new flagship phones of today have nothing significant anymore to offer to improve the user experience than flagship phones from a year or two ago. In the final analysis, only 2 things will require a regular upgrade/change: 1. increase in storage needs as the years go by and as you consume more and more GB of storage data, and 2. battery replacement as the battery deteriorates through frequent charging and discharging. Samsung is really clever for not providing anymore dedicated expandable storage and removable batteries in its flagship phones when its previous flagships had them. Those are the two components that will rapidly render even a properly cared for phone useless (storage full or rapidly discharging battery) in much shorter time. These tech industries need to be regulated. They are coming up with with more and more features that guarantee rapid obsolescence for a more frequent upgrade cycle.

i recently purchase a Note8 & had the battery draining issue then i installed battery doctor & clean master app.now its cool and working fine with great battery life..
I guess there will not be a Compact version of the Note 8 anytime soon.
Why curved screen? More chance of it getting damaged when it falls to the ground!
Phone insurance is not cheap!
I have been a Note fan from the beginning and the Note 8 is one of the best in its class the phone is a beast and in my opinion the best on the market.
Donot know why build quality of note 8 is very poor. Just bought a note 8 one month ago and its paint started peeling off

It means I need to charge in the middle of the day so I have power tool I get home that night.
Turn on the battery saving mode, it gives an additional 3 hours, or an extra 1.5 hours of SOT.
Note8 can get through the day, but I'm not using it without an ample backup. Data, notifications always on, with 2 Bluetooth accessories always connected.

I had to check it was turned off aswell it was charging so quick.
I haven't noticed the phone getting particularly hot doing anything though whether it be charging, pubg mobile, etc

The battery life is admittedly shorter than ideal but it's far from horribl... moreIf you are keeping your phone in your pocket all day yeah for you battery life is very good but you can ask and view on youtube what very heavy usage does to the battery but you probably don't own a Note 8 thus resulting in your lame comment . Before talking next time , be sure you the what the hell are you talking about !

Opinions can't change scientific facts.
