If the retailer sees a demand, I won't be surprised if they increase the price. Wait for another month, price will drop when the NOTE 8 floods the market. We are talking about quality product here not quality materials like the Water Melon ooops my mistake, I mean Apple
Its very good phone. Large display ram 2gb . All features are good but only two things hurting unable to remove battery and price is too high around 30k
bryantpark, 24 Apr 2013Anybody know if it's possible to save S Notes to your extSDcard? If so, how? ThanksI've tried the directory bind on my rooted Note II, whereby I redirected the S Note data to the micro SD. It doesn't work. It works with redirecting large data for games and other apps like Sketchbook, Adobe Touch though. Unfortunately it only works on a rooted device as I remember from the instructions.
One thing I noticed when using S Note on the 8 is that it synchronize with whatever cloud service of everything I've created on my Note II! This is useful as I do some of my ideas generating with the app.
Try reading up on directory binding at XDA Developers forums. Just search for it. Note 8 is still new and no one has developed an easy root method via Odin. A bit busy lately and will still research other methods of rooting this for its full potential.

A store (forgot the name) at SM Dasmarinas is selling at P22k flat.
bluerainbug, 24 Apr 2013So why in the world would they introduce the Galaxy S4 in full HD when IT has an even smaller ... moreAgain, cost, power consumption, slim design and weight. I own 3 different Galaxy Note model devices.
I'm for Super AMOLED screens, but if they used it on the 8, it'd probably drive up the cost further. Yes, premium devices will be double HD after a year's time. I've seen full HD screened devices. I really can't tell the difference against a 720p.
I work with a full HD 20" screen for graphics, and I can't see the pixels. Yes, everything is geared towards HD resolutioned screens soon, but it's unneccessary. It's more psychological than practical satisfaction.
TheNeighbor, 24 Apr 2013There's not much point on full HD resolutions for small screens.

The way I see it is that everything's geared towards full HD. Don't get me wrong, I love Samsung phones and tablets, but c'mon 8 inches is vast and I would love to watch full HD movies without scaling of any sort.
Samsung note 8 - it will be good with DUAL SIM and T V function. Hihiiii!

It takes up roughly 80% of the battery's capacity. Imagine how much more if it were full HD. We've seen how full HD 5 inch screens suck up power. It's impractical to have full HD on portable devices, taking up more power, HD video files taking up more memory space, making builds heavier for more battery and more expensive!
Full HD is practical when viewed on 32" to 60" TV screens, not on less than 15" screens. I'll be okay with them if they don't eat so much power on portable devices.
I can't believe Samsung hadn't raised the bar on the resolution! It's 2013 and most 5 inch phones boast full HD. Such a dissapointment.
D, 20 Apr 2013I paid very high price brought the 3G version of Note 8.0 to replace my galaxy note by At&... moreGood point on the better to see with a bigger screen as your main communications device. Paying twice the price ($800?) just to get the 3G version is something else. It's about $530 for the 3G version in Asia. It's just silly to dismiss the Note 8 having phone functionality. There are those who need it. It was wrongly guaged by tech snobs who farsighted to see others who would need it. Would it kill to have at least 20% of the US stocks with the 3G version?
It's opposite in the Philippines - the wifi only variant of the Note 8 is not in the market for those who are budget conscious who don't need the phone functionality. This is a great tool for design and art students and professional alike.
The size of the Note 8 is in between the Note II and Note 10.1. Not too big, not too small. It's in the Goldilocks zone. It's the most agile and versatile tablet in the market at the moment.

I like that you can toggle the default Samsung keyboard to become smaller floating version by pinching in. Funny that there is not so much coverage of the Note 8, even the official user's manual for downloading is not yet available. The S Pen can be used to operate the capacitive menu and back buttons -this is a great relief!
I forgot to mention the iPad can't perform multi-windows/tasking. I'd gladly pay the extra $70 to have all the functions the Note 8 can execute than the iPad mini can't do.
Greggypie, 23 Apr 2013mine bought it yesterday with free book cover for PHP22600.00 @ BSD Int'l beside PC Express SM... moreAw. I'm not so into the flip cover. The white one will really become dirty quickly. I'm waiting for a heavy protective type. The type that will fully keep the Note 8 from high drops.
This Tablet suppose to be my first Tablet but considering the price.... I have to rethink again although it's not yet released in my country but if it is released and the price is more than $400 equivalent of my country currency then I go for Tab 2 7.0 P3100 OR iPad mini.
So samsung take Note......
