Samsung Galaxy Note 8: do you like it or not?


So, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was revealed today — a powerful top tier smartphone with a curvy Infinity Display front, a glass back, dual cameras, and the unique S Pen. Designed as the best Samsung can offer, it rocks all the bells and whistles seen in the past and then some. It also has the hard task of washing away the shame that the Note 7 brought on and, at first glance, seems to be well on its way to doing so.

It's an awesome-looking handset with a rather steep price to boot. After seeing what it's about, you should be well geared to answer the question "Do I like it?". Well... what was the answer?

Eh, the dual camera with OIS and the water resistant pen are the only cool things. Underwhelmed really.

An underwhelming release. If not for the samsung die hards, the lg v30 will own the android space this year. Everything about the v30 just sounds dope.

And if not for the Apple die hards, the Note8 will own the smartphone profit space this year. Everything about the Note8 sounds dope... Cute logic, man.

Own the Android space? Looooooool the Note8 will run blue rings around the V30 all day, everyday. Simply using your half-assed logic of post #20. You literally claimed that the Samsung die hards are the ones preventing the V30 (and LG) from owning the Android space, yet you (deliberately) deny to acknowledge that the Apple die hards are potentially preventing the Note8 from owning the smartphone profits this year... Because that would put the Apple die hards in a bad light, much like you intended to put the bash the "Samsung die hards" in a bad light by saying "If not for the Samsung die hards, the lg v30 will own the android space this year". Have a taste of your own medicine.

re: 45. -swagfox- (Posts: 41; Member since: 01 Dec 2016) lol buddy the iPhone 8 will outsell the note 8 by millions. ================================================ an iphone should outsell any android phone every year...common sense bro...two iphones out a year = not much to choose from...on the other hand...samsung puts out couple dozens of phones every year, then you add the hundreds of other android phones from all the other android oems = many android to choose from. when u have only two iphones to choose from every year, one of either phone will be the most sold phone...u think iphones will sell like it is right now if there are over 100's of ios smartphones from over dozens and dozens of ios oems...i bet u not bro LOL if samsung were the only android oem, samsung would destroy apple in sales...its obvious just by looking and total world wide android sales compared to ios iphones...yah sure, apple would probably gain more sales (due to samsung haters) if samsung were the only android oem, but samsung would rule the smartphone world LOL

No it wouldn't because of the S8. If you liek the v30, go buy it. You will claim any phone is better than what Samsung offers, even when it clearly is not; just because of your blind hatred of Samsung, just like the PA panzies. Just like they say": The "apple" doesn't fall too far from the tree" Sheep just follow the first, right off of a cliff. - http://www.bitterrootbugle.com/wp-content/gallery/patriots/black-sheep-heading-upstream.gif

Always with the excuses. I could just as easily say that without the Apple diehards, the iPhone would be down to single digit market share.

LMAO! More like if not for the fact that LG just doesn't compare. They had a shot with the G6, until the G6 came out.

Though Note8 is a beast, a small segment of consumer will wait until release of the V30. Good luck Samsung.

I don't see the LG v30 offering anything better than this to be honest.

Very underwhelmed. Nothing new here. All the things we have seen on so many phones and the price tag is all time high. So sad to see how greedy Samsung has become. They wanna be Apple but they never will be... Ever.

Name one phone that has features like the Note? Even though I know you can't afford to buy an iPhone, because you are to young to have a job; will you say the same for the next iPhone? Because it will most certianly have features we've seen on other phones for years. The fact is, the Note features are exclusive to the Note and the features on this phone have not been around for "years". Dual cameras? What was the first mass produced phone with it? It wasn't years ago was it? Dual icons for launching 2 apps at the same time? I've never seen on any phone. Older Notes had a feature where you could put 2 apps in a feature to launch them, but it wasn't exactly like this. Being able to write on the phone display while it is off, only appeared on the Note 7, which also wasn't years ago. They dont; want to be Apple. Appel criticized big phones, Samsung did not. Apple criticized the stylus, Samsung did not. Apple dropped the headphone jack and called it courageous and will do the same for the FPS. But the Note still has both and still has face recognition and iris scanning. Apple can't implement one feature, without taking something away. Heptic feed back, drops headphone jack. Force Touch comes, non-movable home button follows. Reducing bezels means dropping the FPS. what's next? The iPhone 8 is also very underwhelming, but only because its features as a "MATTER OF FACT" have been on other products for "YEARS" using your banter. I'm curious, have you ever even been to school? I don't mean walk in the door eat lunch and leave. I mean have you actually sat in a classroom and listen? Or do you sit and think you know more than the teacher and get terrible grades. Because no one in the world can possibly be as dumb as you are.

Lmao, what useless features? The s-pen that no one uses. Or that oh so sweet slow as hell and robotic iris scanner, or the lazy ass software or the ugly AF fingerprint scanner. The note line is nothing but an S with a mustach now. A big and long phone that isnt close to being relevant. The S series is even miles more relevant that this phone. As shown by their sales figures between them.
