Samsung Galaxy Note 8 surfaces on Geekbench

0. phoneArena posted on 11 Aug 2017, 12:16

The three most eagerly anticipated handsets remaining to be released this year are (in no particular order) the LG V30, the Apple iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The latter will be the first of the trio to be introduced, with Samsung doing the honors August 23rd at its next Unpacked event. The high-end phablet will be under the microscope after last year's model, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, was recalled twice and finally removed from shelves...

Those exynos score numbers are from a bootloader unlocked S8 running a custom kernel and rom.

S8+ > Note 8

Bigger battery
Better performance
Sleeker design
Far Cheaper

Note 8 will be great but S8+ will keep its title as Samsung's flagship. Most people couldn't care less about the S-Pen.

=============================================

when u say "most people"...im sure you are talking about the people who dont need the s-pen...bcuz the people who buy the note series will use the s-pen, regardless if its just once, or twice, once in a while, now and then, or on a daily basis.

Exactly. Those who buy into the Note series do so for the S-Pen. Those who do not care about the S-Pen simply have the S series to get.

Lol. You got him then. Darkkmite is pretty sad now. He's one of the biggest hypocrites on this site.

Exactly. As far as phonehex goes, a few months ago he sat on the site and called me every racist name in the book. When they limited his acct, he made another one, with the same avatar, and kept at it until that one got banned. I simply have nothing to discuss with him.

Idiot racists like that are nothing but cowardly keyboard warriors. He's not even worth a piece of old gum stuck on the bottom of your shoe.

I don't hate detest you because you are black. I don't care. I detest you because you are a lying hypocrite who gets butthurt because someone disliked the No 8.

"I don't hate detest...."

Lol, what? Make sense for once.

When darkk was talking about the racist, he wasn't talking about you, idiot. He was talking about phonehex. So you either responded the way you did because phonehex is one of your other faux accounts and you forgot what account you were using when you responded, you're a racist yourself, or both. I say both.

Caught him with his hands in the cookie jar bro. I could own him, but I'm getting less and less interested in conversing with him. His just trash now to me. Site fodder.

Exactly. He's busted. Part of me is done with him too, but the other part derives a guilty pleasure from owning him and setting his trolling lies straight.

There's no need to make this a race thing. No need to criticize someone because of the color of their skin.

I disagree because you are the biggest cowardly keyboard warrior.

And lol it's hilarious watching you suck up to Darkkmite.

Lol, what? I'm not making this a race thing, you idiot. But thanks for being so guilty about your innate racism that you feel compelled to respond the way you did. I always knew that you were one.

Stop projecting. Everyone here knows they your a chicken sht little coward hiding behind mommy and daddy's computer.

Lol, it's hilarious watching you pretend that you're not a coward and a racist.

MG, let him be a keyboard warrior bro, it's what he does. If you've no intention of manning up face to face, then don't say it online.

He's a coward dude, and I think he has android user accounts too.

Exactly. He's such a cowardly keyboard warrior. He's all talk. He knows he's not about that life, lol.

I think he does, too. Dude has no life except to make accounts here and troll.

Oh look, it's darkk's stalker coming to touch himself at the mere thought of darkk.

Lol, I see you changed your avatar because I kept calling you out over your infatuation of big black men.

I am the same way.
When I was using my note 5 I used it every day.

Note had its share of users not because of the pen but because it was a big screen device with big battery life.
I believe more than 90% of its users couldn't care less if they have a pen or not, they just love the size of the screen.

But then, since 2013, there have been many big-sized phones with big battery life like the Note series, yet the Note series' userbase hasn't stopped from growing... Which debunks you claim that 90% of it's users do not care about it's stylus... Unless you have solid stats to back it up.

How about the Note7 touted to be on track to outsell the S7 edge after a strong start in sales, before the battery fiasco spoiled it's fate?

Isn't the S7 edge just as big in screen size and battery life? Then why do people who not care about the S-Pen not get the S7 edge instead, as since it was even cheaper when the Note7 launched?

Your claim lacks substance, man.

Note was almost the only choice; sure, there were some Lenovos and Xiaomis, but they lack brand recognition.
The best proof that Note users don't care about stylus is the fact that the soft of the Note - except some note taking dedicated apps and a few options - doesn't integrate it in every routine. Or does it? For instance, what could one be doing everyday with the stylus?
Is there a text recognition tool in email/sms/im apps? Can it be used with the camera (dedicated uses)? How about the media and social apps (Facebook, Instagram etc)?
If Note doesn’t have dedicated tools for those apps to take advantage of the stylus and those apps are the ones most used (hence my percentage), that means most of Note users don't care if their phone have a pen.
People need simple things: this is the galaxy - a bit big, but normal sized phone, this is A - a middle class phone, this is Note - a big phone.

IPhone had its share of users not because it was a good phone, but because of the Apple logo.
I believe 90% of its users couldn't care less of it works well or not, they just love the Apple logo.

Is easy to post what one believes, even if there's no proof.

This is not a "vs" discussion, it's about a feature that only a handful of people care about.
Look for proof at post #90.
