#DoBiggerThings: 8 rumored features that will make the Galaxy Note 8 a beastly phone


15 days.

This is how much is left until Samsung shows the Galaxy Note 8 on stage and treats us to its productivity-oriented autumn flagsip phablet. On August 23, the wildly expected handset will fill in the gaping chasm left by its untimely-recalled predecessor. Productivity-savvy users largely failed to fill in that gap – the S Pen stylus paired with Samsung's feature-rich UI makes Note handset a respectable productivity offering that hardly any phone of the ilk has succeeded to counter.


With the imminent arrival of the Note 8, we thought it'd be a great idea to sum up some of the most anticipated hot features that will likely be a part of Note 8's extensive feature list. We, for one, can't wait to sink our teeth in those, so let's jump right into it.

This is a SQUARE S8 PLUS. The Hell is wrong with you guys! And it could possibly cost $800-1K!?

Don't buy it then. We don't need your fake advice, or fake sympathy. We're grown, and buy what we want.

I'll be waiting to see how it turns out, but if I buy it it'll be outright. Unless they offer a great deal for payment plan.

I have AT&T. The next plan will be like 33$ per month. I'm just gonna buy it, and be done.

Waiting to see how it turns out?!?!? You've rambled on and on and on about how the S8's are the greatest phones ever, and about how the Note 8 will be even BETTER, and now you have to wait to "see how it turns out"?!?!? What's wrong, don't you believe all those links you've posted before?

That still doesn't stop people from wanting a Samsung phone, just like these type of issues affects not just Samsung's UX, but all gadgets, be it defects or glitches in cars, TVs, software programs, games and so on. Weak link...Try harder.

You're trying too hard, because actually links mean nothing. When a person posts links about a device, all it REALLY means is they don't own the device.

Translation: "I got my troll ass owned, so I gotta turn a blind eye to the evidence debunking my failed stupid attempt at trolling and keep telling myself it never happened" There, FTFY.

They need to use the "do bigger things" gif on start up of the phone... That would be dope!

Can't wait to get the best phablet of the year hands down :D Hurry up Note 8 and get released!! Just hoping Samsung somehow manage to squeeze some extra juice out of the battery.

Trust me, they will...With their domestic (Korean-only) "Prime" versions of the phone. They ALWAYS make these editions for Korea only, so I usually wait for these to release before I come to a conclusion about whether or not Samsung is gonna do their absolute best with a flagship device.

It's beastly sure, but you'd be stupid to think it is untouchable king

Opinions differs, my brother... and it's all subjective. Cheers

It's beastly for sure; and you'd be stupid to think it is not the untouchable king. Fixed.

that fingerprint location is just so freaking terrible on a 6.3 in phone...

It is downright cringe worthy tbh

For as often as I use the fps on my s8, it's not an issue at all. Primarily use smart lock or iris scan with fps use only about 10% of the time.

Better than to have then to have none.

I think it makes more sense to use this fingerprint sensor location on the Note8 because the phone is not designed for quick access with durable hardware to help; it's more like a multimedia, tablet replacement. It's a huge, ALL-GLASS phone with a pen that's expected to cost more than $1,000 USD. Trust me, people are gonna take there time with this one lol
