One of the major improvements Samsung should bring with the Note 8 is the battery power. Note 5s are terrible.
I have not used an edge phone yet, but I can imagine how difficult it is to hold the phone, Samsung should bring edge and non edge Note 8s. The smaller bezels are enough for a business phone. Having both bezelless and the edge display is just too much interference to productivity.
Rookee13, 07 Apr 2017Been using my note 5, waiting for the note 8 (skipped the 7) and tonight using the S7 edge tha... moreLikely the Note 8 will be edge only (same as the galaxy S8) that being said I went from the S6 edge to the S7 edge (waiting on my pre ordered S8 to arrive :) ) and the curve has become considerably less sharp and prominent each phone so you may be forced into it but it will probably feel a lot smoother this time around
My Note 8 camera will still be better than the Note 8. SO why should I even bother upgrading after these specs? Looks like I will not be missing match if I keep my Note 4. Plus, I can always get a new battery when it stops finally holding a charge like it did 2 years ago, and I put a 10,000mAh battery and now it lasts for days. Yeah, my Note 4 will still be the best Note over all Samsung devices still. No way I am upgrading. And that whole edge screen sucks. It makes phone impossible to hold and easier to crack the screen if it drops on it's side. They did it on purpose to force customers to buy new phones because the phone screen will crack much faster.
Xmaster, 03 Apr 2017The note 8 will be the best phone to date. Can't wait!Been using my note 5, waiting for the note 8 (skipped the 7) and tonight using the S7 edge that I don't like... Nowhere to hold the phone because of the "edges"...
SHAZAMM, 07 Apr 2017This better be wayyy better than the s7..sorry i meant s8 but whats the difference really...if... moreFeel free to make suggestions... in all honest, there won't be anything mind blowing.
The next big step is probably devices with flexible screens but that will certainly have teething problems and is still a few years away from anything decent.
I am literary waiting for this since Note 7. Was suppose to buy that but didn't because of the battery issue. Have a broken Note 3 (fixed recently kinda) an upgrade from this to note 8 would be AMAZING. Samsung I LOVE YOUR NOTE SERIES PLEASE DO NOT LET ME DOWN, GO ALL OUT ON THE SPECS AND EXPERIENCE!!!
And please stop pricing it so high. I'm seeing the pricing trend since S6. Now you are almost pricing like Apple. That's a bummer
This better be wayyy better than the s7..sorry i meant s8 but whats the difference really...if this disappointments me..SAMSUNG YOU WILL FINALLY BE DEAD TO ME for selling branded plasti for thousand of dollars
Great news, I am waiting to have it one, I have been using note series. I hope to see better spec compare with note 7, and Jinghpaw / KACHIN fonts and Myanmar fonts included just like Iphone 7Plus has it all.. cheers
Im owner Note 1, after Note 2, and then 3 and I've stopped on the Note 4, and I dont want buy 5 or 7 ! because new models are worst they degrading, but pay for marketing its foolish.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017Your quotes are reasonable but as of 2017 Note4 remains a lag king. Im using last update, for this phone is 6.0.1 Android, and its still never lagg, no reboots, no lags, perfect phone !

Note 4 still the best phone on this line, because Note 4 have:
1) Infrared port,
2) dedicated microsd slot,
3) removable battery,
4) plastic back panel (not glass) i can throw this phone on hard surfaces and didn't afraid the glass will broken
5) i have 3 batteries in my pocket and i can change in anytime in a few seconds, and i dont need powerbank.
JohnIsCooper, 31 Mar 2017Removable battery ? Are you still living in 2010 ? Do you like playing with phone batteries ?As a heavy user, I use a 10,000mAh on my Note 3. That's 3 times the capacity of its original. It's 20mm thick, but I'm not carrying a powerbank or charger to get through a day's heavy use.
Terri, 04 Apr 2017I have a question, I've never had a samsung phone....so which would be better the galaxy 8+ or... moreSince you are asking, get the S8/S8+. If you don't know what the Note series is, chances are you don't need so much features.
Terri, 04 Apr 2017I have a question, I've never had a samsung phone....so which would be better the galaxy 8+ or... moreThe 2 most striking differences are the screen and the S-Pen. The screen on the rumored Galaxy Note8 is said to have a 4K display which is considered Quad HD or UHD. The screen on the S8+ is a little better than just 2K, or Double HD or SUD. That is, that the screen on the Note8 is twice as sharp, in theory, as the one on the S8+. They also have different screen technology. The Note8 has a special screen that allows you to write with a special stylus that has a plastic nib just like a pen's tip and not the thick rubber can be used on all other screens. The Note8 is also the only Samsung phone to have the S-Pen.
