While it would have been great to have the 128 and 256GB version of the Note8 be available, and I would not mind paying some $200 extra, you always need to look at the specs about their bandwidths. Certain models from Korea for example will not work properly where you are, limiting you to just 3G, with LTE bands not supported.
Well, at least now we have memory expansion slot. Original Samsung Evo 256GB mircoSD cards are about $120 or even lower. 128GB microSD is about $40. Ah, the goodness of having storage space when you need it for media.
My 128GB Samsung Evo (Orange) has been in use for more than 2 years now. Usually it's 70% full, with storing up media when I need to for entertainment on trips. Audio books, Youtube, Premium Spotify updates the music lists you are into and saves them on the microSD. The rest are some e-book references like standards and researches.
Imagine, early 2000, we could not see how 128Gb would be used. It used to be 128mb for one of the fist MP3 players! Soon 512GB microSD will be a norm. And yeah, you should have encryption turned on for added security.

I don't think anyone can go wrong with these phones.
By the way, I know people who didn't return their Note 7 and are still using it till date.
I don't trust Samsung Products, specially their Mobiles. I have strong feeling that Galaxy Note8 will have a new set of problems because it is nothing but Galaxy Note7 with minor changes. If anyone wants to buy, I recommend waiting for few months in order to be tested by different people around the World.
Fogsh, 02 Oct 2017I want to purchase this phone, but I have big concern regarding the battery, from the reviews ... moreI have used my note 8 for a week, I have more than 200 apps and am a heavy user. In my concert I dont have any problem on battery life my phone can survive a day and ofcourse only 5% battery till night. But its can survive whole day with one time charging and plus note 8 have quick charging. I don't know may be because of different chip set used there will be different in battery life because mine is exynos.
I want to purchase this phone, but I have big concern regarding the battery, from the reviews they said that the battery can not stand for one day for normal use.

TheNE1GHB0R, 01 Oct 2017There is a 256 GB version of the Note8.That'll be something crazy expensive! Haven't seen for sale though.
AnonD-197784, 01 Oct 2017I think the 256Gb referred to is the SD Card included. NOT 256Gb internal memory.256 internal + 256 external is possible
