My Note 2 was swiped from my son's stroller and my Note 3 is going strong. It's been through motor oil, the toilet (water damage to battery and phone), accidentally being tossed across a sidewalk of solid ice, and I'm using it right now. I'm banking on the Note 8 being amazing because I'm not sure how much longer this phone is going to hold out.
I do not like the non-removable Li-Ion Battery, why can't it be removable. So when the battery dies, you don't have to buy a new phone. That is not fair to the consumer
I wonder the correct all mistake to make maximum selleing of this Note 8
the screen should be 6.2 inch as the size will not be changed from note 7 as the screen should cover 90% of phone.
the edge screen is very bad, it make you cannot hold phone good and phone goes crazy because of tough edge !
the Specs could be :
Snapdragon 835 or more K965
Ram should be at least 6GB
Battery should be 4500+ if it is non-removable
Camera should be at least 24MP with F/1.4 to ba able to take photo on night same as iPhone 7
infarrad port and radio and 5G connection with Bluethooth 4.X or 5.X
battery saving feature should be much improved..
fingerprint and sensor should be improved..
storage should be minmum 128GB with fast speed memory..
Dual sim should be working together with SD card takes 512GB..
protection of SD card if stolen on locked/ encriped by samsung so If phone lost I can use SD with new Samsung..
every phone has it is own lock with fingerprint on SD card and password protection with mobile and emails ( dual mode)
battery should cover at least 48 Hours..
Verizon just deactivated my note7 a week and a half ago. I kept it as long as I could ... So I am anticipating the release of the note8. The only thing I do not like is the curved edges on the phone. It makes it difficult for the screen protectors to stay on. They always end up breaking or ripping off depending if I used the glass or clear sticker ones. I would say for Samsung to go back to a flat edge screen for that purpose.
still with my note 2!!!, changed battery once, 5 years and going, lets see if note 8 worth the change, and yes, not a removable battery no change.
5,7inch ? No I don't think the screen will be that small. Comparing with s8 edge I think it will be around 6,4inch. Who disagree with that ?
Didn't upgrade from Note 3 until Note 7 came along, but couldn't get my hands on it as it disappeared from sales. Oh! Well! Have to wait for Note 8, but this time round, I'm looking for a dual-sim model with at least 128GB (better if it's 256GB) of internal memory as I'll not be using an SDCard, so as to take advantage of the dual-sim slots. That's real sacrifice.
Here's hoping that Sammy will come out with a 2018 Note series with dual-sim slots + an SDcard slot. Then, I'm no longer in a dilemma of having to choose between using the 2nd slot for a sim card or a SDCard. If Sammy does not do it quick enough, then I'm sure other manufactures will do it as it's a feature that they can brag about since nobody else have it.
I have note 4 and gone through 2 batteries already. Looking forward to Note 8, but will not buy it if battery is not removable.

I own several Samsung phones and different models. Most recent, I acquired in fall of 2005 Samsung Galaxy Note 5. I love it. I would upgrade to S8 (or next Note) if a) the battery is removable and larger than 3000 and b) it has large SD external memory, minimum 256 GB if not larger. Large RAM (6-8GB) is very welcome news. Of course, the price must be reasonable!
I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge SM-N915G for the last two years and I can vouch that this is one of the best phones still going. Extremely durable.Money worth spent.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2017please listen to you fans samsung: we want this note 8 with a replaceable battery Unless Samsung like to lose more money and fans if the device have hardware defects like note 7, Samsung claim note 8 having battery defects, that they are can replace new battery ,not for replacing hold device, how much you want to pay $40:00 per new NFC battery
Or $900:00 per device, so removerable battery is the best way, all my family is galaxy not 1,2,3,and 4, we will stick with note 4 until samsung make up the mind if not we will have to go with some things with battery remove able and micro SD
I really don't see the point of creating brighter lenses ( f1.8 , f1.7 to f1.6 now ) if these are just small phone camera sensors. They should provide bigger cameras = improving the per pixel / pixel size of sensor instead of making this crappy marketing made " dual camera " and keeping current megapixels , or if its possible , to increase about 25/50 % to 16-18 MP which is enought.
Really hope that to prevent any future component failure, they will make it with removable battery, and make it easier to teardown the phone for repair. Modular design for the win.
I want the internal memory of 128 GB or be more.
I hope to move top button device driver.
Coming from owning a note 7 for a while, I really hope they make a flat screen version. The curved edges are pointles, make typing more error prone and completely make a mess of apps that require tapping at the edge of the screen. For instance, windows rdp app and minimizing maximizing or closing windows.
The last autochthonous design of the series Note 4 and Note 4 edge, since from Galaxy Note 5, they have only copied hardware from the "S" series. It is a shame that they backed off in the resolution of the rear camera from 16 mpx to 12 mpx, which is evident if we zoom. Cell phones, because there is no space for optical zoom, it is vital to have a high number of megapixels. And the menera of obtaining big pixels with high number megapixeles would be to elaborate sensors of camera of greater surface, and with lenses also of greater surface. Undoubtedly the most complete of the series Note, is still the 4 and 4 edge. Sony Z from the premium version 5, and Sony XZ begins to surpass the series "S" of Samsung, in terms of material quality, speed, and security (do not explode)
