Very expensive budget phone.

Its a really nice smartphone
OMG, mocking up the size of the Note8 against my Note 3, there's going to be an increase of 12-15mm vertical screen realestate! Whoa, this is sort of irregular aspect if I was drawing. It does seem to be good for browsing mobile version pages.
I guess I'm have to look at the real thing, or reexamine the S8+. With screen of the Note8 being so big, this should have at least 4000mAh battery - a taller battery inside with an increase in thickness.
They did away with the S8 Active with a 4000mAh, they can do it with the Note8.
AnonD-624913, 02 Aug 2017Hold on buddy its just a rumor not the actual phone, wait till the official launchEverything is leaked, even the dimensions being compared to current competing brands. I have a pretty good idea of how bigger the screen would be with the 9:18 ratio.
Yup, bigger than what I'm used to with a 5.7", to a 6.2" Galaxy Note. Sort of a Galaxy Mega, except less sides.

Mobilemaster, 02 Aug 2017Oh boy, accordign to rumors this is going to be huge, even bigger than the S8+. You will need ... moreComparing the Note8 to the Note7, Note8 has grown to 6mm wider (1/4") and 9mm taller (3/8"). That's around 12mm or 1/2" taller than the first 5 Galaxy Notes, however, 6mm to 7mm less in width. And it's just 3mm taller and 1.1mm wide than the S8+, and so it's so ever very very very slightly bigger than the S8+.
That almost 1cm taller than my old Galaxy Note 3 means that this thing will be hard to fit my top shirt pocket... It's 4mm taller than my Note 3 with a Zerolemon battery case! Hmmm I guess it's still workable.
I just hope Zerolemon comes out with a battery case by NOT increasing the bottom and upper chins as they did on the S8 duo models. Totally hideous.
While some are confused between what Galaxy Note as a tool, less than as a status, there are little rumors about what the Note8's S Pen's new function or pressure-sensitivity levels. I remember the Note7's S Pen as the best that I've ever tried while drawing.
I'm hoping that at least 4000+ of pressure level sensitivity with tilt input would be there. Pair it to a laptop that has 3D programs like Mudbox, or just the Sketchbook mobile app, it can be a sufficient productive tool for visual creators.
The concept of a 5"+ screen device with a Wacom active digitizer pen with pressure-sensitivity was what made people who draw like me to getting the first Galaxy Note in 2011.
While the masses at that time seemed to reject and ridiculed the idea a big screen like 5.5" as "too big" in 2011, I find it to be an ideal tool for even hand writing as a process for working out ideas.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017this phone will be the best phone of the year. no one can beat this!yes. no one can be ugly like this one
Do Not like edge screen in Note, you should give range for people who don't want edge screen
I have both S7 edge and edge+ and I feel S7 screen is better because no edge
hopefully there is version without edge same as note 4
DNeighbor, 02 Aug 2017Yup, you need those 3 to just to be in. I can work with a Galaxy Note and a Surface Pro, b... moreNot too comfortable with the toothpick sized pen though. The Tab S3 pen makes more sense. Thats what I plan to use mostly with it.
Oh boy, accordign to rumors this is going to be huge, even bigger than the S8+. You will need some really big pockets.
AnonD-197784, 01 Aug 2017I still dont see your "points"
Im buying the Note 8 because its the most premium I can get ... moreYup, you need those 3 to just to be in.
I can work with a Galaxy Note and a Surface Pro, but a Galaxy Note only for most days.
This new leak posted recently states 4gb ram.
You can get a 8gb ram oneplus 5 for around 650 dollars. Why Samsung doesn't listen to customers??
At least 6gb ram should have been there. When a C9 phone by samsung can have it why not S Series.
If thats because of the edge screen then for cosmetic purposes functionality is compromised
I hve an S7 edge ,was waiting for note8 , never bought an iphone till now. i think its time. The iphone 8 being 10th aniversary would be a good option as a safe investment
