Are you just griping for gripes sake? I wasn't being sarcastic. I know its a niche phone but if you just say 'a million units', I have no idea how that relates to other phones or earlier versions of the same phone. To be honest its a much more reasonable question than the usual stupid questions, whines, bitches and fanboy comments that you usually get here. So, apart from telling me its a niche phone, do you have any idea how much better its selling? Korean, worldwide or otherwise?

They've already stated it's sold as much or more than the S8 in SK.

Summoning failed. You forgot to curse his god and chant thirteen racial slurs about his race.

Numbers from a month ago indicate the Note 8 is doing well. 1% market pentration in 4 weeks in a saturated market. Of course this story never made it on ipa. https://wccftech.com/galaxy-note-8-market-share/

Enjoying mine too. Samsung 8.5 experience is great and is utterly dramatically improved from all past versions of Samsung skin

Very well refined, and problem free. They did an outstanding job with the Note 8.

It's as good as you told me. I still don't like the FPS position, but other than that the only thing it needs is front facing stereo speakers.

That all I would add, nothing more needed.

I love how it feels when I use it not in the case. The materials just feel "cool" in the hands and it looks stunning. Watch videos is just amazing, even crappy Facebook videos. I hate they changed the shade of color for the Orchid Gray. The darker shade on the S8 was awesome. Performance has been stellar. The only downside is the themes ruin the usage of the keyboard and causes it to lag, while the basic theme doesn't cause any performance issues. But I like themes, so that's been my only bad experience so far.

I don't like Samsung phones and don't buy them but i will happily admit that the Note 8 is the best phone of 2017 and probably ever.
