Well I'm not sure about that, but I am pretty sure it will crush your iToy 8 in both spec and functionality.

He's the brainwashed idiot who said that the note 8 is like the second coming of christ. Effective brainwashing techniques from Samsung.

How long after a phones release to carriers can I buy the unlocked version from Samsung or anywhere for that matter? I'm on Verizon but don't want to buy a carrier specific phone.
