They are making phones so expensive, that there are lot of cases, where youths on motorbikes and cyles stealing phones out of people's hands. Most likely the phones are unlocked, as they were in use. If these phones have EMEI numbers, so how do they bypass the network locking?

The only thing a Note 8 will blow up is your wallet.

If you need two SIM's then this phone is pretty much useless, as you need to sacrifice the memory slot. They put in a 4K video camera (which are equivalent of 4 x HD screen), but you can transfer your huge videos to a memory card. It forces people to use up the phone's memory and you ended up with the dreaded insufficient storage message.
I doubt very much Samsung staff read the opinions on gsmarena.

If it makes you feel any better all current reviews have stated multiple times that the performance between the two is hardly noticeable. Probably the only way that extra 2gb comes in handy is for the multi-window feature.

I think it would take a lot to do without Google's Android and right now it is a threat to even Microsoft as a mobile computing platform.
If Google plays fair and not sabotage OEMs by optimizing/favoring only their own hardware like Microsoft is trying to do these days, then I think Samsung has a very big future in the mobile phone business.

In the US we rarely saw bonus offers until just recently, probably because like everywhere else we are starting to pay for our devices in full instead of through discounted contracts so OEMs are trying to get buyers with gifts to offset sticker shock. At least the cases are cheaper than the SD+Wireless Pad or the Gear Camera. I've seen some N8+VR bundles on eBay but I'm not sure if the Gear VR is actually discounted with it.
As far as Tizen goes, I think Samsung would really have to make it stand out because right now it just seems like the ugly stepchild of SailfishOS with little to separate it from the pack. Supposedly Microsoft wants to help it get .Net support but I have no idea if that is an actual game changer long-term. The fact that they keep putting it on low spec devices like watches and budget phones probably means it's not yet optimized enough either.
Some of the US unboxings I've seen come with freebies like the Wireless Chargers BUT unfortunately no free casing (Xiaomi included one with the Mi Mix because of the fragile ceramic body) or a Samsung VR gear.
But all that can be forgiven just seeing the handset!
AnonD-197784, 06 Sep 2017Unfortunately so! Samsung can't just up and leave Google's Android.Maybe one day Apple will merge with Samsung into a hellish mega corporation and then the iNote XXIV can run iGalaxyOS 34 and not Android 57.0.4 aka White Chocolate Gumdrop Sprinkle.
