Extra speed is great but remember isn't going to be as fast as u think. Android still has lags even with 6GB as we know from reviews of other devices lol.
Either way I shall see. I do want the Note 8 but don't know since I have the S8+. Same design, mostly same internals. The Note 7 was bigger screen, Iris scanner, Spen, More features, Different design a bit so that's why i liked it.
For The S7 yes it's bigger and newer lol but for the S8+ It's not bigger other then a bit taller because of the 6'2 on the S8+ vs 6'3 on the Note 8 but thats not a huge difference lol. The RAM yes but it's different for everyone. If the s8+ didn't come out with a big screen as it has, then I would have waited. So we shall see. Many I know wanted the Note 8 but being the same design, similar internals ( again only difference being the RAM and extra camera) they don't see that what gr difference. Different for everyone :).
We shall see. I have someone within Samsung Canada that seen the Note 8 ( as they see then before everyone else) and told me that he likes he but expected more from Samsung for the Note line lol.
Its good that u can do notes with the screen turned off though.
guys. how about emotional side of things? holding that brand new tech before anyone esle :). given my reputation in the office i can't show up without it on the launch date. but in all fairness u r right. its like note 7 last year. you and i have these debates for the last few years. u almost never skip an upgrade so i m shocked to see you skip it this time.
i am mainly looking forward to zoom camera and slightly bigger screen. I also heard that force touch may be an option.
now i am debating between essential and note 8... i love 360 video. have 2 years worth of content by now. so having a smaller 360 with instant stitching is a huge plus on essential. what do you guys think? i also like the fastest update cycle planned by Andy. Samsung on the other hand guaranteed to deliver much nicer camera. great multimedia screen (miss my mi mix even though software on it sucked).
i really hate the fact that we can't share a number across multiple devices. i want to have 2 3 phones and take which ever one i want for the day without swapping sim's. i do that with my smart watches. i have 4 different onces - going out out on my tag connected. sporty look - lg watch sport. working out Gear s3 is king. and for casual loom LG watch style.
same with phones. no one phone is perfect. but given a choice i would love to pick the one i need for that day.
Rogers you are so behind. For goodness sake just give us advanced options. its 2018 almost..
At this point as much as i don't want to skip it, I have invested alot of money on my S8+ so to be fair I rather wait until the Note 9 and see how that is. ( cases, extended warranty, chargers) I do want the Note 8 but again for me it's the same thing as the S8+ just another camera, extra GB which has proven on Android phones it doesn't do much as it still lags lol and a Spen ( spen I barely use anyways even on my Note 7)
So if I try to sale this for $800, I still have to dish out another $300-$500 for the Note 8 ( it's supposed to be more then the S8+ outright). Also the fact that the battery is smaller on the Note 8 as well is kinda a turn off for me. 3500 vs 3000 is a big difference with screen sizes, running apps and everything.
The software updates and security updates are great with the S8+. Soon we are receiving the August one as well. So we are up to date.
Remember the Essential doesn't have many features and it still new ( many have complaints about it as well).
