I played around with this again. The competition has tilt input on their tablet. I got spoiled with the iPad Pro after spending an hour drawing with the Pencil. A big difference even with my Wacom Pro digitizer tablet, which is what we have with the S Pen.
I was just only testing both iOS and Note8 with the same Sketchbook app. Yes, one is the best drawing tablet now, while Note8 is the best smartphone with a digitizer pen. That tilt input is a big deal, which Note8 lacks for drawing.
With the same price range, and 256 GB with the iPad Pro, I'm just waiting on the review for the Note8 battery performance to make a decision. I do want that f/1.7 camera on the Note8 which is the only thing that's making me hold on a bit.
TCool, 10 Sep 2017Looks good. I also pre-order the orchid grey color. Nice. I am already using midnight black in S8+. so took different colour
AnonD-197784, 10 Sep 2017Nice one! Thanks for sharing! How is it doing so far? Can that Dex addition for you replace... moreit's nice phone. I am using S8+ since few months. except s-pen features and dual camera in note8 didn't see much difference. for normal use like browsing simple things Dex is more useful. but it can not totally replace desktop coz you can not install desktop applications here. nut Sex has future. soon it will become powerful device.

AnonD-197784, 10 Sep 2017I think the price cut has started already! Not here in Dubai...it's still on pre-order and deliveries/purchase hasn't begun.
It will take the new iPhone to be launched in stores for that to happen, and even the V30 isn't here yet....may be end-Oct or Nov is a good time to seriously consider a purchase,so fingers crossed lol

Rdmkr, 10 Sep 2017You could get this... or a Mi Mix at half the price with 1100mah more juice, a closer to norma... moreYeah BUT like I always point out - Mi Mix is a flagship from Xiaomi BUT did you know they are still stuck on Marshmallow??
Those Chinese Co.s make hardware with the current (at the time of release) Android version and leave you at the mercy of folks at MIUI, Android forum, etc to download different ROMs, deal with "rooting" your "flagship" device and all that stress to probably make you brick your device in the end.
You also have no idea the amount of malwares and phishing codes you download in the process to your unsecured device which exposes all your details and bank/credit card data on your phone to hackers and cybercriminals.
You can't compare those things to Samsung high end phones let alone a flagship like the Note 8.
One thing I know is; Cheap Always Ends Up Being Very Expensive.
You could get this... or a Mi Mix at half the price with 1100mah more juice, a closer to normal aspect ratio (smaller video black bars), a brighter screen without pentile matrix, smoother graphics thanks to 1080p and no touchwiz lagfest. Spend the remaining cash on a Sony Rx100 and you also dominate it in camera quality.
LG is good. LG using snapdragon 835 chipset.
Samsung using Samsung exynos chipset. this processor is not good performance. In usa and china banned Samsung exynos chipset.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2017Yeah man, I am happy to get a 64GB Note 5. Now it's hard to find the 64GB version.Seriously it's impossible to get. I think for the NEW ones available, it probably makes up just 2%.
Awesome phone. And I think we'll get Oreos too, hopefully.

AnonD-697199, 10 Sep 2017Yes No Maybe (after 1st price cut)I think the price cut has started already!
chin'ah.girl, 10 Sep 2017"Lick it or gulp it."
This is definitely a new expression to me. XD
I think that Google ... moreVery true about Google and Samsung BUT competition and management changes/decisions can be very different sometimes.
And about the Apple iPhone X, I believe all OEMs are desperate now that's why most are making these handsets at almost a loss - I'm still a string believer of the fact that the profit margin in the Note 8 might not be up to that on the S8.
And one would need to see the iPhones in person or reviews when released to know the actual dimensions, specs and feel.
But I'm happy with the way the mobile trend is going; more sophistication and more advanced features - of course at a higher price.
And why would Xiaomi choose to launch Mi Mix 2 on 9/11?? WTH! Am I mistaking here??
Anonymous, 10 Sep 20171. Yes
2. I pre order for only $906 not $1000
3. Yes!Nice to know!
I'm seeing ready to ship Note 8 on eBay for $950 unlocked. Not as expensive as thought. BUT not yet seen the 128Gb anywhere for sale.
Note8 is heaviest phone of 2017 flagship
Moreover it is the thickest of 2017 but same boring spec sheet with cumbersome design..........
Among blazingly fast phones: note8 and spen is lazy slow and old school
Samsung make fresh...
