I decided to buy Note 8 instead of Mate 10 Pro and bought it 3 days ago. Probably this phone is better than Mate 10 Pro but that's not mean Huawei's phone is bad. I chose Note 8 because of it's ultra high quality display, Bluetooth 5.0, IP68 and wireless charger present. For now I'm happy with my choice but the fact that, Note 8 is far from perfection due to it's "almost" useless fingerprint, mono speaker, battery capacity and lack of Apple's build quality. With it's S-Pen capabilities, this phone would be my favorite in the near future.

Not Bad but Note 8 The best
Robbie, 07 Nov 2017Honestly, the speaker is really poor. Probably the worst part of the phone Plain bullshit.
I am comfortable with the finger sensor. Works perfect with my left hand finger.
Imperator Neubaticus, 08 Nov 2017Lol nobody cares.This is what he post "...an under screen finger print reader, something both Apple and Samsung have been trying to perfect but failed so far hence not available in any phone to date."
Read the last part, something that Huawei Mate 10 has but he is only looking at Apple and Samsung.
I just want to prove it by pointing to reviews in YouTube.
Somebody tell me about battery life and Speaker Quality Finger Sensor
Is it true that note with bigger internal memory is not supporting the 2nd sim?!!
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2017Mate 10!? Go post on Mate 10 page. This is the Note8.lul go find it yourself
Robbie, 07 Nov 2017Honestly, the speaker is really poor. Probably the worst part of the phone Yeah you are right then.
I got the Nougat update on my A3 phone yesterday. The difference in sofware is quite a lot. My phone is now running newest version and very big change
overwatch player, 07 Nov 2017guys may i know ure opinion about the speaker quality in note 8 before i buy it and thanksHonestly, the speaker is really poor. Probably the worst part of the phone
Yes, the Note8 is great for creating some casual art. I've been trying out the ArtRage app, and during my breaks, I've finally finished a piece. Millie Bobby Brown:
Suffice to say, the 6 GB of RAM and Exynos processor holds up to providing some smoothness in my colour mixing or blending. No stutters. I tried with my older Galaxy Notes, and there's a slight delay while doing the same task with ArtRage.
The S Pen is the selling point for having a Galaxy Note. 64 GB of UFS with the option for memory expansion is great to have for all my media needs. I turned the display settings to basic for better color accuracy.
PiCosm, 07 Nov 2017Just got my Note8 and it is a lovely phone after owning a Note5 that is pretty good too. I won... moreHuawei Mate 10 has the fastest fingerprint sensor and most convenient location.
You should watch YouTube reviews of Mate 10.
HarryD, 07 Nov 2017Here's what doesn't make sense to me. According to GSM, the Note 8 has over 20hrs more battery... moreDo you monitor your exact hours of screen on time and data? The metrics of GSM Arena is using 1 hour daily of cellphone call, I hour of of video, and 1 hour of browsing... And they measure how many hours till the entire phone endures the standby time. We do not exactly do the same things as the endurance testing results.
So I devised my personal way of gauging how I use mine. Without gaming and just a mixed use of music, video, bluetooth connected and via wifi or data, I can say I can get about 12 hours stretch with about 6 hours of total Screen on Time. See my chart:
I actually charge it when it hit somewhere at 60%, and the 40% can give me about 2.5 hours of Screen On Time.
Since we are all stuck with a sealed battery, I got a magnetically attached power pack to keep up with my power needs.
Here's what doesn't make sense to me. According to GSM, the Note 8 has over 20hrs more battery endurance than the iPhone 8. I've owned both of these phones and with moderate use the iPhone 8 easily lasts 1½ days (as it should really, smaller screen, better processor etc.), whereas I had to charge the Note 8 (Exynos model) every day. Samsung nerfed the battery because of last year's debacle with the note Note 7. So what gives?
