Bixby actually looks like it does some really great things. I need to look into how to use some of these. Phone looks really stacked on features and battery life looks great. Watched a good head to head with it a S8+ and a iphone 7 plus and the Note 8 actually lasted the longest just beating out the S8+. Looking forward to the huge screen going from a regular S8. Crazy because the screen on the S8 isn't exactly small.

The action voice commands are awesome. Jimmy is Promo has a video of him saying a simple phrase, like goodnight, and the Note 8 goes into do not disturb, turns on the blue light filter, and sets his morning alarm. All that, just from saying goodnight. It's pretty cool.

Ya I saw that and the Food photo demo looked awesome also. Put the phone into Camera mode, take the picture and even move it to the correct folder in his gallery. I also really like the translation stuff with the s-pen. I can see lots of use doing money conversions with it when I travel.

I'm taking my wife on a 7 day cruise around Mexico for her birthday, the S-pen will see a lot of work. Our last cruise, I had my Note 7, it was S-pen heaven. I use it so much, and won't be without it again. I honestly can't see anything else being my daily driver, once I get mine. My S8 Plus is going on the bench.

If I get this phone I’ll use it for 3yrs. It’s got everything I may need for the next tech years.

NOte 8 only 3300 MaH battery, is it sufficient for this kind of big screen with OLED display?

Better suited for OLED, than LCD.

Size of display is irrelevant in battery life for OLED. Number of pixels is what matters.

Exactly, I loved how almost everyone right off the bat bashed the Note 8, claiming that the battery would suck due to it's smaller size and yet it outlasts the S8+ in every test I have seen.

AT&T just charged my AMEX today at 635 CST for my wifes Note 8. I hope it comes early. When I ordered it said ship day was potentially Sept 5th. So if it comes, I can check it out and decide if I want it and still have time to pre-order I can.

Mine was ready Thursday, picked up Friday and is now sitting 22 miles away at the UPS distribution center as of 10 am Saturday. So I'm pretty confident it will be here Tuesday since Monday is Labor day! Sprint by the way, and I got 200$ off the price...so I'll only pay 759$ cheaper than the S8+ I got back in May

Pre-ordered mine from Verizon on 8/24, and it showed up yesterday 9/5. Very surprised it was shipped out this early, but I am glad it did.
