This will be another fiasco, this time because of the price.

Not at all. More people do NEXT, EDGE, JUMP & whatever Sprints' upgrade plan is called than buying a phone outright. Nice try though.

You can tell how great a new phone is going to be by how Rowdy the haters get. The Note 8 is obviously going to be the king of phones.

It'll be the best rated phone, just like the S8/S8+, Note 7, S7/S7 Edge,Note 5, S6/S6 Edge, Note 4.

Credit card locked and loaded, let's see what it has to offer under the hood and what else Samsung will be offering with pre-order to justify such high price tag compared to competition like the OnePlus 5 here in Canada. The Note 7 was also over $1000 here in Canada, but it still justified its price tag compared to a OnePlus 3/3T.

I have never seen a hotter pile of trash. This phone is horrendous and essentially a sin. Why? - Poor FPS placement - Big and ugly - Terrible form factor - SPen is straight trash - Laggy mess - Bixby trash - Can't remove Bixby button - Battery is way too small - Overpriced - Glass on both sides - Curved screen trash - Lag during games - Looks like a bar of soap - Doesn't beat 6+ - Women can't use it - Sammy fanboys like darkidiot will purchase it - Doesn't touch iPhone 7 in speed comparison, which is nearly a year old - Sold by Company who cheated on benchmarks - Sold by a Company who hired trolls to shame HTC phones and stiill does it

-Poor FPS Placement if you have the hands of a toddler - Your Opinion (But Galaxy phones tend to get massive praise for design) - Your Opinion (See above) - Your Opinion (If you actually opened your mind you'd see it differently) - All Phones Lag regardless - Most Intuitive AI in a Smartphone - Can't remove any buttons from a Smartphone - Portable Chargers work wonders, and software will make battery last long - Great Bang for the Buck compared to other top selling phones - Allows for wireless charging - Allows for one handed use with larger screen - All phones lag anything else?

- Poor FPS Placement for literally everyone as it's not ergonomic - Yes, big and ugly back - Yes, terrible form factor - Yes, S-Pen is trash. Stylus in 2017? Hold this L - Some phones lag more than others, such as Galaxy phones - "Your Opinion" (see your own comment; pot meet kettle) - You can't remove a non-physical button that appears on a screen? You're an idiot - Battery is still too small - Great bang for buck with the same phone (S8+) is less money? TERRIBLE bang for buck - Most would prefer a more robust phone that doesn't crack - One handed use will be horrible. Might as well use a Nexus 7 tablet - Some phones lag more than others anything else?

continued.. - Best looking bar of soap I'd ever seen - Maybe it a bending contest - Women who use it tend to use S-Pen - People who want a phone to do everything will buy it - Feature heavy phones do tend to run a little slower - When did they cheat? - I'm sure trolls don't get paid, but if they do, how much do you make?

continued - You spelled worst wrong - Maybe you need a lesson on comedy - Stylus in 2017 = lame - People who want a phone that can barely run due to LAG will buy it -https://www.extremetech.com/computing/162717-samsung-caught-artificially-inflating-galaxy-s4-benchmark-results-fires-back-non-explanatory-explanation -http://bgr.com/2013/10/24/samsung-paid-anti-htc-trolls/ anything else?

- FPS is easily adjusted too - opinions - opinions - opinions - Never experienced bad lag myself - How many Apps does Siri and GA interact with? with the exception of just opening the app? - The Bixby Button is a physical key on the phone, not on your screen - Note 7 battery was smaller than S7edge and it lasted longer - Note 7 was more than S7 Edge and with the exception of the recall was a better phone - Their sales say differently, seeing as they continue being the best selling Android - One handed use is capable on S8+ with average sized hands, those with smaller hands have an S-Pen ;) - lag...we get it Lumbergh - Best is spelled B-E-S-T - Maybe but 6+ was known for bending rather easily - If S-Pen wasn't so great, why did Apple and Microsoft try copying? - LAG... the way you're stuck on repeat are you suffering from Lag? - 4 year old news and it's still eating away at you? - See above

- FPS placement is still poor - Yes, big and ugly back - Yes, terrible form factor - Yes, S-Pen is trash. Stylus in 2017? Hold this L - You never experienced bad lag? "opinions" - Quite a few actually. GPS, music, notes, internet...to name a few - Can't remove/remap it, making it a problem - Not true. GSMarena test shows the Note 7 didn't last as long as the S7E. Nice try - Note 7 exploded. Irrelevant - iPhone 7 sold more as a single device - Overage size hands will struggle using a 6.3" phone with one hand - It's does lag, see above. Lumbergh is right - You spelled worst again - 6+ sold more than GS6 and was a great device - Apple copied? I don't see mobile phone with a stylus? - Yes, the galaxy devices lag. - Doesn't change the fact it happened, which you seemed not to be aware of? - See above

- FPS is poor location for those who never used it or tried it once to test it out - rinse and repeat - rinse and repeat - rinse and repeat - How is my personal experience with multiple phones, as well as those around me with the same phones an opinion? I'm not just running around telling everyone what I say must be fact - Do they also pull open select albums from your gallery? - Not a problem now that Bixby has launched - Not irrelevant, larger screen, smaller battery, lasted longer in real world usage - Samsung is an Android device so that's irrelevant to iPhone sales - My hands aren't oversized and I use the 6.2" screen with one hand - You and Lumbergh are broken records - Maybe you need your eyes checked - still bent under little pressure - Of course not, because apple doesn't include premium accessories with their devices. Doesn't stop them from charging $100 for Apple Pencils for iPad Pro - Rinse And Repeat - But they learned from their mistakes and moved on, why can't you?

And, it occupies your mind every second of the day. It's really got you worried, and, it's not going to get any better when the reviews come out. I suggest you don't read them.

And, my comments occupied your mind. I suggest you take your own advice and "don't read them."

There's no excuses for those high prices.

in most asian countries, the price already includes tax, and the sales tax rate there is higher than what we have in the US. So I think this price is about the same as the prices for the previous generations
