I tried two SIM (the second for cheaper faster data) with QHD on, with no battery optimized. Even with just texting and not even 1 hour of mixed wifi and data, I got 2:45 Hours of Screen on time over some 26 hours period (not counting the 5+ hours turned off while I was asleep).
AOD was turned off, and it gave me just some 7 to 10% of saved battery compared to my previous when it was turned on. Some 39% was left on the 26th hour of turned on. Fiddling with it just for some 3 minutes with looking the settings would drop the power by 2%. The largest amount of battery is really going to the powering of the 6.3" screen. I was even active in turning off all radios if I didn't need them.
Just look at the screen shots of my battery usage. You have to consciously have things turned off, screen to a lower setting of brightness and resolution.
Yes, you will need to constantly charge whenever you can. Turn off radios when not in use. Turn off AOD. Hit optimize to turn off active apps.
If you calculate the numbers of the SOT with the percentage battery usage, with TWO SIM cards you get a maximum of only 4:30 Hours of screen on time over a day's period. Yes, you really have to keep charging every time you can, and keep the Note8.
This is the real battery usage, and you can only possibly hit above 50% battery left by light usage of the Note8. The screen just guzzles up power!!! I'm going back to a single SIM card as I've been hitting some 50% of the internal memory and really need memory expansion instead.

Anonymous, 06 Oct 2017no radio, no ir blaster, and no removable battery . saaadddddeeesssst.Believe what you like but there are no other devices which pack as many standard features as the Galaxy Smartphones.

Can anyone here share their experience with the Dex and Note 8 combo?
Any recommendations of a cover/case that would work with the Note 8 and at the same time fit on the Dex?
TCool, 05 Oct 2017Face unlock is the most secure of all!https://www.cnet.com/news/samsung-note-8-fooled-face-unlock-not-secure/
listen to the professionals. obviously you're not one of them.
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2017no radio, no ir blaster, and no removable battery . saaadddddeeesssst.Firstly
Radio - useless nowadays
Ir blaster - was a minor feature and it was taken away with the s7 and above phones
Removable battery -sucks and causes bad phone design
Conclusion-you should better forget the past and get used to with the present.
wasox, 06 Oct 2017This beauty has finally arrived to my country!!! I WILL get mine as fast as possible!!! Then, you will pay as much as possible. And after 3 months it is available for less than half the price. But go on fanboy, I won't change your decision and I don't want to.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017Note 8 will update 4k 60fps can or notNo, since 4k@60fps requires twice as more data flow ( which is not possible even for latest Kryo chips). So it cannot be achieved just by updating software.

Samsung will not bring it back if is not secure, same as your reasoning of bringing back the expansion memory that it is needed.
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2017no radio, no ir blaster, and no removable battery . saaadddddeeesssst.Then buy iPhone 8 Plus, let's see if will get that all. LOL!
The.Neighbor, 06 Oct 2017Yes, charge when you can. :-)Wireless charging. Convenient without sacrificing the looks of the phone.

It's already have been widely talked about as a low security measure. Easily fooled by anyone with a picture of the owner. I don't even have to experiment. It's common knowledge.
Iris scanning unlock, or fingerprint scanning unlock are the most secure ways. Someone here does not know this.
