TheNeighbor, 15 Dec 2017What was your case? Did it have raised lips?I have a superb Spigen case, it's protected the parts it covers, but lips wise, it only has them at the top and bottom, but in this case, the phone screen impacted with stones and lumps on the concrete, so even larger lips would not have helped.
I don't like screen protectors, they ruin the phone, in particular the ones for curved screens.
i wish we could go back to flat screens!
Am not looking forward to getting a quote for the repair, but plan to sell the note after getting it fixed and go back to having a basic phone and get an ipad pro instead for my creative thinking needs. one does not drop an ipad!
Been using note 8 for quite few months now.
I like its big screen, s pen and all that, but honestly the battery its rubbish and I mean absolutely rubbish, while I write this review 4% drops lol Battery it's embarrassing on this phone!
Also very glitchy apps specially facebook, it's just there is no smoothness, but maybe it's not the phone, its android in general I don't know. But yeah, I do love it, but battery and glitchy apps lets it down. Oh yeah, camera on it it's superb, Ive done crazy cool shots on my holidays with it.
Well this phone is a piece of shit in beautiful package.. The screen is very very
frangible.. My display broke into a poket! Warrantly was dennayed!

My new £860 Note8 flew out of my hand and landed hard on rough congrete on it's unprotected screen, bouncing once and landing on it's cased back.
The screen has three impact areas and multiple cracks extending bottom to top.
The cost to repair it will no doubt be substantial.
Realist, 13 Dec 2017The only reason I didn't buy this is the stupid curved screen edges.Its a personal choice i bought note for the first time because of curved screen
Gautam Saharan N8, 14 Dec 2017Should we use screen protected or not on our Note8 . If we dont use any type of screen guard o... moreI got the OtterBox Defender right away. It has the most raised top and bottom edges that keep the front glass about 2 to 3 mm from a flat surface, plus it's a combination of hard plastic and rubber surface. This provides ample structural and distance from impact and so I don't see the need to have a glass protector that adds distance to my S Pen input for my sketching needs.
The disadvantages of glass protectors is it might not fit the case you are using. There are case-friendly glass protectors that are shortened on the sides to provide space from the case edges - however, dust will accumulate in-between case and glass protector.
Clarity will be slightly reduced as well.
Fingerprints will stick more to the glass protector than the actual screen as it will not likely be treated.
All glass protectors (except Whitestone Glass Dome which has full screen adhesive) only have adhesive on the edges, and therefore have air space between the actual screen. There will be an annoying flex and clicking when you press some areas. The adhesive will only work after sometime, and they start lifting up from the screen - I've seen this happen.
Scratches can be avoided by not placing your device with other in your pocket. I had the Note 3 for 4 years without scratches that I can see.
The official flip clear cover case seems to be a logical choice. I just wish it had a magnetic clasp to keep it closed.

But expecting major updates is not going to drastically change the Note8. We already have split screen and dual wireless outputs that the Android 8 promises other phones. No point.
Plus the leaked Oreo ROM for Note8 is flawed and still being improved. What we have is working and am happy that i get to operate my Note8 very efficiently.
Nonsense No updates released, nor in sight. Don't panic, nothing new, except what you can read in changes, not eminent on screen. Now P wud also be like this, cosmetic changes here & there.

If you want to go bright closer to 100%, expect burn-ins. Organic screens have this flaw.
However, I do love the full resolution and brightest screen when watching video because it's not static pictures.
I've been using AMOLED based screens for 6 years
5 different phones - no burn-ins or ghost images on the screens. So complaining - go get a LCD screen phone.
Plus, get plastic builds - you can't seem to even afford a raised lip heavy case. I'm not a fan of glass backs, but it's silly for you to complain about covering glass backs and expect these 1k phones to survive a drop without a case. Do not buy. Simple.
TheNeighbor, 13 Dec 2017What smartphone does not wear out? Putting a case is a logical step to having it last longer. ... moreDad's iphone 7 screen cracked when he dropped on wood floor (unlaminated) from 1 meter and had a super thick flip case . And what about burn in? I have to stay at low brightness all the time? What a joke! If you can afford 1000 euros every year or every half year then samsung is the best for you! And again where is the point with this all glass design if you have to cover it?

Putting a case is a logical step to having it last longer. My Note 2 lasted this 5 years long, and in use by a family member - it had a case on it.
I'm still waiting on my Rhinoshield crashguard bumper to arrive as the minimal protection when using my Note8. Using it without a case is just asking it. No matter how careful, there's always that other person who will bump it out of your hands. So always put a case or even just a bumper.

Easiest way is to use a 1 amp charger. Been doing that.
