I don't like sealed batteries because they will eventually degrade and I have to go to Samsung to have them replaced properly and with the right battery. Unlike I can do it myself with the removable battery system last implemented with the Note 4.
Well, I have recorded 50 battery usage times of my Note8 with normal browsing, music, video streaming, with bluetooth always connected with my earphones. No gaming, no GPS, some minutes of calls from time to time, and 80%+ of my data is from wifi. Here's the chart for the last 25 usage cycles:
I can safely say I can get 5.5 hours of Screen On Time over a maximum of 12.5 hours stretch if I reach my battery to drain. This is an improvement from previous Note 3 with a regular battery that can only sustain barely 3 hours SOT in a 10.5 hour stretch.
One thing to note - connecting to carrier data will eat up more battery power. It's funny how we have thin devices that don't last as long for a whole day use that we have to carry power packs.
The sealed battery is such a hassle since I have to do trickle charging from time to time thanks to a Zerolemon 10,000 mAh battery case, or with a Scosche 4,000 mAh power pack with just one press of a button. Keeping you battery at higher percentage like charging when your battery reaches 80% actually increases the battery cycle count up to 10 times more! This is according to some research.
At lease I don't have to plug in to a wall outlet or wait around an office desk to charge.
Wee, 25 Dec 2017Mate 10 pro or note 8? Which one better I saw the price of the Mate 10 Pro - $780 available only in ugly brown. If you're asking, then you don't really know what the Note8 is or need the extra features it has.
Note8 is rated to be the most complete smartphone for 2017, especially with the S Pen.

I actually like the 18.5:9 ratio. That's a 17mm taller screen compared to a 5.7" diagonal measured 16:9. The extra area is fantastic at looking at more content and multi split-screen. It means I have two squares of two different apps or 2 browsers.
And before the anti-multi tasking commenters say it's silly, well I can jot notes with the S Pen using OneNote with a browser or pdf reader for research info on the other window. Way more productive than an iPhone. I don't have to carry an extra phone or tablet. Everything I need in one device.
And drawing on a 18.5:9 ratio doesn't bother me. In fact, it compliments my needs to do wider landscaped-oriented drawings.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 could be the best and most complete smartphone on the market if its dimensions were 162.5 x 76.2 x 8.6 mm (6.40 x 3 x 0.34 in), instead of 162.5 x 74.8 x 8.6 mm (6.40 x 2.94 x 0.34 in). I do not know why they make the screen so narrow. The same thing happens with Samsung S8.
If u wanna front fingerprint..I suggest u to buy Galaxy note fan edition...it's really good device :)

akfa, 22 Dec 2017Note 8 or LG v30 pls help meIf you're going to use the S-Pen often than go for the Note8. If not, I would go for the V30. It's just a bit smaller and a little more pocketable.
