Only if I could swap the current battery with a third-party extended battery if it had a user-removable battery system. I solved the inadequacy of the Note 3 with a 10,000 mAh Zerolemon battery that gave me all day with up to 12 hours SOT with 40% left when I get home.
Without power saving mode, the Note8 can last up to only 10-12 hours with the way I use it. This is with up to 5 hours of Screen On Time.
I did get the Zerolemon 10,000 mAh battery case to charge, but now weighs close to half a kilogram whenever I charge. I have to change back to a Rhinoshield Crashguard bumper after.
This is owing to the majority of people thinking sealed batteries is forward thinking. It's actually the opposite.
I am still getting frustrated with the battery.... Soooooooo frustrating... I couldn't last a day! It's good that I am in the office most of the time, I can easily charge it...

The pinch zoom does a good job for that. I document my students' work process, and footage comes clear, crisp and in STEREO. My setting is on 60fps FHD.
Stabilization is excellent.
I do note that the Note8's focusing on UHD, FHD 60fps, and 4k has AF tracking off. Again, I'm not doing macro and micro shots randomly. It doesn't deter me.
Well i m using both iphone x ans note 8 . X is boring small phone i feel then depends on your choice. If you love to play games n watch movies and some painting note 8 is better coz games looks tiny on x some of them are not full screen supported and watching movies is very annoying due to voice speaker screen cut on top of the phone . X only can open app little bit faster n nice speaker on it but only having a face unlock its joke because on night when i have to unlock my x i have to keep phone in certain position to work face unlock no doubt same i have to do with iris in Samsung note 8 also but i use fingerprint. And most imp thing there is no app lock in ios until u jailbreak i feel insecure when I want to give some one my cell for call or any pictures i wants to show them in thr hand cell go unlock any one can check my whatsapp so for my personal security preference android is better i know fingerprint can b hack n bla bla bla but we are normal people not agent no one can hack all this in front of you .

Did you saw the video about 1080P@60fps? This not the only YouTube video shows this issue there¬ís other video shows this issue I¬íve even have the same issue with my note 8 the camera can¬ít refocus when you shoot 1080P@ 60fps like other phones. I¬ím not saying Note 8 or S8 are bad phones nope Samsung needs to work in software more instated of adding new features.

I can do my digital paintings with the Note8.
Portabile digitizer drawing with a smartphone - and I've been doing it since with the Note 1 in 2011.
I have no issues with my video recording lens focusing. Nothing of what you describe. Nor is it present on the S7 Edge, or my previous Note7. All with Isocell.
All of iPhones and iPads can't do simple stereo audio recording. When Apple finally puts it on their prices, it'll be a thing. I doubt it'll be this year. 10 years in waiting. I'm not impressed.

But sine there¬ís no issue with sound quilaty then no problem and hope Apple change it to stereo with the upcoming iPhone X 2018. The reason why iPhone X doesn't comes with iPen and there¬ís no Samsung note altreantive is iPad Pro with pencil bigger screen and Apple made it for that reason.

I can't draw or paint with an iPhone with my finger. It would even register tilt input like with the Note8 S Pen.
There's no memory expansion with an iPhone - I don't have to spend another $200 extra on top of the $1000 for the 256 GB version.
STEREO sound recording is a thing - what, Apple can't pull it off? Have you heard of listening with headphones?
You're actually defending mono audio recording?

Mono recording not big deal since there¬ís no desaturation or tiny sound plus iPhone has an stereo speakers Actullay 3, 1080P@60fps has focusing issue on Galaxy phones since S6 and Samsung still didn¬ít fix it to date! Don¬ít know if it¬ís somthing wrong with there in house sensor ISOCELL or camera software and hardware?!.
Ps. I¬ím using note 8 and iPhone X FYI :)

All I need is 1080p 60fps for my video recording. Did you know your iPhone only records with MONO audio? Pretty useless
Repair value is is extremely high with $500+ for just a broken back? Silly. That's why it retains "higher resale value". Its parts are expensive.

Brighter and well calibrate OLED that made Samsung calibrate by Apple in better way.
4k@60fps (note 8 can¬ít run 1080P@60fps it does has serious focusing issue).
Resale value of iPhone better after one year or more than any android phone around.
iPhone updated direct from Apple at least for 4 years unlike Android fragmentation.
More advanced AR.
Raja2400, 05 Feb 2018Which one is better of two ? Google Pixel 2 XL or Note 8 ? Stock Android and up to date software update plus excellent camera go pixel 2 xl other than that go for note 8.
TN1, 05 Feb 2018Hmmm, I wonder which one has the most features, and way more useful...Both are good in there way.
MuSaddiq Abdul Hamid, 05 Feb 2018On paper Samsung Note 8 but in real use Iphone x is the best.Obviously you have never handled a samsung note series device, I in fact doubt that you have handled ANY flagship device of any brand, lol
I bought this phone today...Really happy :))) Can't wait to use it.
Love It So Much ~~~
