You can not simultaneously use both SIM cards.
Honest Question toNote 4/5 users who switched to Note 8?
I have been using a note 4 since March 2015. Undoubtedly it was the best buy at that time, and IMHO still holds up to the flagship phones of 2017. Fast forward to 2017... (dang Note 7 didn't reach my country) my Note 4 though still brilliant, has started showing its age.
I am a pretty heavy user, having gone through 2 extra batteries in the past 3 years. My usage involves mostly watching videos, photography and listening to music. simple question to you:
1. Is the phone durabe, in terms of battery replacement scenario?
2. Is the screen way better than note 4 approx (515ppi)?
3. Will the Note 4 get atleast 2 more years of Android/security updates?
4. Is the dual camera setup worth paying the extra dough?
5. Is the form factor easy to hold and use on a daily basis?
6. Has the functionality of s pen evolved vs the earlier note versions?
7. Looking back after 1 year, do you think this phone would still hold up to its competitors?
8. (Speculating here) Is this phone evolutionary enough..example the note 5 was like an upgraded note 4. Will note 9 be an upgrade to note 8 or totally different?
Thanks for reading patiently :)
I have question about Note8 . Im using Note8 from over 2 month , i want to know that should i use single sim or should use two sims . Hows performance if im using both sims simantaniousaly . Is there any performance issue if im use two sims . Or should i use only single 4g sim .
fantastic phone .im a note fan n m still using my 5 year old note 2 as a second phone it performs d same as before.....i use s7 edge black pearl as a primary phone n will surely upgrade to note 8...iphone is highly overrated device...use a note and u will know what i mean...
I still can't get over how old design still being used by Apple what a joke.
galaxy note 8 is a feature and future proof mobile.
outstanding sensors and biometrics,one word amazing.
s pen how useful it is only who knows who use it.
not expensive compare to apple and pixel phones,in my country i heard that people are buying iphone x in above 1 lakh (1600$).i think some companies are encouraging only price not feature.
a little weired design comared to galaxy s8 plus.
sound a big cons. for me.my htc m8 is way better than sound it,lg did a great job in sound imrovement also.again and again samsung never concenreated on sound quality.
battery could be bigger and better like redmi mobiles.
overall rating of mobile in my thinking is 8.5 in 10.
value of money rating is 10 by 10 comare to other mobiles.

Is not in english but proves everything apple says is wrong. I even believe iris scanner is securier the face id.

Anonymous, 07 Dec 2017Iris scanner has become faster then face id by not having a swipe on the new update.Yeah, it's a setting you have to turn on under iris scanning unlock - that was the default, and I'm guessing not a lot of people knew that. Pressing the power button, and without having to swipe or pressing the virtual home key, Iris scanner unlocks your Note8.
Or is it you just take out your phone and the iris scans for your eyes without a prompt? That'd be cool.

Yeah, I'd like to see a picture of the paint peeling too. Of course we can expect wear and tear with any devices, even anodized aluminum are really prone to some surface material loss after some in and outs from our pockets. That's why we have cases on them, and against impact.
Don't underestimate keeping a protective case - a colleague thinking of removing for a while at home dropped and cracked the entire front screen. That was one of those rare occasions he just wanted to feel his S7 Edge as is. That's $225 worth of screen replacement at the Samsung center.

Hard to believe your claim when ive had this phone for just as long as you and no paint peeling anywhere. Not even the s pen holster. Had a note 4 before that and i admit, paint peeling was there especially at the microusb port but that happened like a year after.
