Galaxy Note 8 leaks again in case maker renders, Arctic Silver version included

Back when the first color versions leak of the Galaxy S8 came our way, we couldn't help but notice the funky names that Samsung chose for the hues - Black Sky, Orchid Grey, and Arctic Silver. That last Arctic Silver version will apparently be present as a color layer on the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, as well, if the leaked case maker render above holds water. It will probably join the obligatory black and grey versions, as well as that Blue Coral that so many seem to be fond of. Will Samsung ever release a pinkish Note 8, or a brand new color altogether, remains to be seen.

I don't have to own an S8 to have tried it. I also can use the Heart Rate Sensor on my S7 Edge for a very similar experience. It's awful.

Trying it in a store and owning and using it daily is two different things.

Heart rate sensor and fingerprint sensor are going to return two different experiences.. You will be using the fingerprint more often than the heart rate therefor your muscle memory learning curve will be faster than that of the heart rate sensor due to frequency of use... Fingerprint use is out of necessity and heart rate use is out of novelty at best...

Not so fast there homie lol... You still need to own the device to spread hate about it! lol

Lebron didn't hate on the device though, he provided criticism. Not the same thing homie.

Those two are interchangeable homie...So technically they are...

ROFL you are stupid. Definition of Hate: intense or passionate dislike Definition of Critique/Criticism: a detailed analysis and assessment of something Two very different things. Lebron and Tedkord don't hate Samsung. In fact, the opposite is true. They wish Samsung would fix something so that they can further love their device. Technically, they aren't interchangeable homie; technically, you're wrong.

It's not broken. I got used to the s8 plus FPS quick.

I don't mind it being in the rear, but they need to center it. I'll end up getting used to it if I grab a Note 8, but that shouldn't be required. Bad design is bad design. Not saying it is broken but it certainly can be improved.

True, but But what's more important is how well it works, and it works very well.

"You are being a blind fanboy by suggesting they keep something that isn't as ergonomic as other solutions. That statement is 100% subjective. So you had no grounds to say that Mreveryphone is a blind fanboy by suggesting that Samsung keep the fingerprint's placement that way... Just like Mreveryphone had no grounds to say those who do not like the placement of the fingerprint are blind haters, because it is all subjective, FFS. No single individual gets to decide whether it's a bad design or not.

LG V30 look better.

Yea........no it doesn't. And even if it did, will it be better? No it won't.

Subjective. But if you like the V30 then like it. Why even compare? Nothing compares to the Note period, so you're comparing 2 phones designed for 2 different types of suggested consumers.

Can't wait to get this and the V30.

Why not have the scanner on the top, right, or left side of the device? Front would be best, but the sides could be accesible while device is laying on a surface easier. Makes sense that they just haven't got the front design to work yet, and the back was the easy defaulyt until the on screen issue can be overcome.

Still a stupid fingerprint scanner placement, especially for them lefties, but I can easily deal with it while taking advantage of many advanced benefits. Those far outweigh the stupid fingerprint scanner placement. Bring it on Sammy, mostly liking what I see.

Its actually easier with the left hand.What are you talkign about. Are you a lefty? BEcaus eif not, then you have no idea what its liek to be a lefty. I'm a righty. Its a bit more difficult to use the FPS with my right hand vs my left. So now out of habit, if my phone is laying upside down, I garb with my left now by default without even thinking. Even though my device is using smart lock and while I have my Gear on or in my car or at home, my device is unlocked by default if used within 15 mins.

When I pick up my OnePlus or any Smartphone, index finger is relaxed on the opposite side of the phone. Would have to readjust both index finger and middle finger in the case of my left hand to reach the fps while maintaining grip of the device. Whereas in the case of my right hand, index finger is relaxed over the fps by default. Would have been best in the center and below the camera like earlier mockups had it, making it suitable for any hand use. Plus, little to no worries of smudging the camera.

Most people really dislike the fps on the gs8 including me tbh.. But i believe the gs9 will be a king without most of the complain points of the gs8.

*inserts John Wall 'BRUH' meme in response to these redundant FPS comments* If this is a final image, I'm surprised the top bezels match the color of the phone vs how the S8/S8+ are.

Because it not a final phone. I didn't think I would like the FPS on the back but, after 2 or 3 day I can hit it 99% of the time.
