Tech.Chief, 12 Oct 2017Getting mine Friday. 64Gb, Black. Friday as in tomorrow Friday? I ordered the same version, black as well. Curious how large it will be side by side with my Mega 6.3. Still using my Lumia 930 to date since more than 3 years but I am very positive about using the S-pen on my Note FE so the Note8 shold be the same experience with probably better support from Samsung since it's not region specific.

It's in an unplugged state and wouldn't need any current flowing to keep the battery charging or charged.
There is only a flow IF there is a connected battery and the flow will be to either charge the battery or keep it charged at 100%. So once the phone is NOT on the pad, there is no current flow.

Nags, 11 Oct 2017Price is equal to iphone 8 plus but camera quality has gone down. Note 8 customers are really ... moreFirst, iPhone 8+ and Note 8 are both tied at second position with 94 points each. Second, Note 8(got a perfect 100) trumped iPhone 8+(96) in Photos sub-category in the same DxOmark review. I would pick S8/Note 8 camera any day anytime over an iPhone 7/7+/8/8+.
Aadrian, 12 Oct 2017I ordered Note8, will get it tomorrow. Congrats and welcome to the future!
Robbie, 12 Oct 2017The iris scanner on mine works in practically pitch black conditionsI use eyeglasses and most of the people use sunglasses.

You still need to remove your glasses to unlock the phone.

Finally got a tempered glass for my not 8. Much better then the $ 50 one earlier. Sticks fine and covers all the edges. Some cheap one from ebay. Have had those on s7 and changed it every 4-5 months but they are much better than these expensive ones as they stick and prevent scratches. Each to his own I guess. Ali express has a million of them

Meantime, for others out there, let us read Samsung's disclaimer when you use Face Unlock as a method for security and some precautions... Here's the screenshot of that:
"-Your phone could be unlocked by someone or something that looks like your image
- Face recognition is less secure than Pattern, PIN, Password"
Plus you need to be in good light for face recognition to work. Iris scanner works even in the dark because of infrared lighting. You can only choose either face recognition or iris. I chose the latter. :-)
Gman, 11 Oct 2017Why the pathetic 12 mp camera on such an overpriced phone???Because it's 12mp dual with that fancy image focus depth thing where it makes super precise bokeh effects
I was very wrong about Note 8.
I just got the phone 8 hours ago and everything is superb and tip notch.
1) Finally a good quality and speed Qualcom processor! (Do not buy anything below Qualcomm 835)
2) Samsung finally made superb fast user interface to match the processor!
3) All applications open super fast (thanks to Qualcomm 835 again)
4) noticeably less stutter on certain website (although still a little bit there)
5) The best in class ,top quality of color - OLED display .
Perfect 440 cdm2 brighteness (you don't need brighter display , because it will start fading away color depth ). White balance of display is top notch and contrast is superb.
6) hopefully this one will not slow down and won't start lag in basic apps after 3 or 6 month of use, like all other Qualcomm processor Samsung phones did (except galaxy S6 and note 5, because those had a good Samsung processor ).
