Galaxy Note 8 vs the top big phones on the market: a size comparison

We've got some pretty reliable numbers from CAD blueprints for the Galaxy Note 8 that could help shed some light on how big Samsung's upcoming phablet will be, so let's take a look at how it compares to the top 5.5-inchers (and up) currently on the market, as well as it's ill-fated (now-reborn) predecessor...

(Get me into one ASAP. My must have if the year.) "My must have if the year"??? Didn't you tell me that I can't spell because I misspelled liar with " lier"? Now you just did the same thing, so you also can't spell. You're inconsistent, as usual.

He got 100% owned, and shut down the other day. Now he's pissed, and looking for any typo he can find lol. All he has to do, is come to the site and chill, no need to PMS on everyone.

Indeed. He can't contain his rage and he's grasping on straws. He should chillax and enjoy.

Shut it troll you always look foe errors when anyone types. More like you got busted and bashed this week and also last week by 5 other users on here. He is not pisset, he retaliated you dumbass.

Exactly. I am simply retaliating him. I called him out on his messed-up sentence when I saw it, but he claims I am calling him out because I am just looking for looking for typos in his posts... Typical make-up to suit a false narrative. He said I can't spell because I made a typo when typing "lier" instead of liar. But now he makes a sentence with misplaced words. "My must have if the year"... Hahaha, that's so much great grammar in one sentence from someone who knows how to spell. /s

Speaking of dumbass, weren't you the one who kept saying that the Note 8 will be the same width as the S8+?

Hypocrite Apple fanboy, it's all right when he Darkkjedii does to others, but not ok when others do it. I've course you would give him credit because you and him are both Apple fanboys.

Reaching to the top while holding this phone with one hand is impossible! I don't care how you adjust your hands!

this is a device for people with big hands ( like basket ball players or football players). Certain segments of the population that are over from 6'11 to 7'9 when they hold an iPhone or S7 or 8 it like a tiny match box car for them. a Note line is like and average size phone to them - they can easily handle it with one hand. The rest of us need two hands ( if we plan to not use the S pen < why would you get this and not>). I know I will not be operating this with one hand as I will be utilizing the s pen heavily so I need one hand to hold it and the other to operate it with the s pen. No issue for me.

That's why we have 2 hands, and if you don't, don't buy it. Problem solved.

Maybe with your small hands, wouldn't have a problem with it in my big hands. Then again, there's the 1-hand mode that's been in the Note line for years now, so, that's a non-issue.

Good thing they've got actual usable one handed mode which shrinks the screen. It's such a good idea that others have half assed it on their new, big phones.

Also one hand mode is very easy to activate in case u have to use it with one hand.

This looks way too big. How would anyone would wield this thing? This is tablet size category.

Saw that. There is a limit on how much the sizes can go. In my case, I have a oneplus 5 and an HTC 10. before that, I had a Huawei mate 8, a Nexus 6, and a Galaxy Note 4, so I got used to the phablet size. But if the leaks turned to be true, I think it would be difficult to wield. Just my 2 cents.
