Would you buy the Galaxy Note FE or the Galaxy Note 8?

Would you buy the Galaxy Note FE or the Galaxy Note 8?

About a month or so ago, Samsung released the so-called Galaxy Note Fan Edition. A re-re-launch of the Galaxy Note 7, with the same hardware, design, and safe battery (third time's a charm). Some would argue that Sammy shot itself in the foot, releasing a top-tier Note 7 reboot so close to the launch of the Note 8. But the Note FE is only sold in limited numbers in South Korea, so it's hardly a gamebreaker internationally.

So, what are the differences? The Note FE has last year's Snapdragon 821 and 4 GB of RAM. But hey, it has a physical home button with a fingerprint scanner on the front. The Note 8 has the top-notch Snapdragon 835, 6 GB of RAM, the dual camera, and the new 18.5:9 aspect ratio... but also a rather hefty price tag and a weirdly placed fingerprint scanner.

Provided you have a way to get a Galaxy Note Fan Edition... which of these two devices would you buy?

Would you buy a Note FE or Note 8?

Note FE for sure!

Note 8 of course!
63.97%

Neither one. Is that an option?

Yes, it's called ignoring the article and moving on.

The sweetness in your heart when someone defends samsung in an article. An obvious glorified samsung troll claming to be otherwise.

Lol you got him good. He's been doing that for weeks now. He's obviously a fake.

LOL, you still have no idea what got/owned/burned means, your ignorance is pitiful and funny at the same time

Both are stupid phones

I would not counter your claim, because that is your personal opinion, unlike mxy/Flash who thinks his opinion is truth. But if you think both phones are stupid, why didn't you just ignore this article and carry on?

I am sorry that your tiny brain can't comprehend the fact that non-fanboys exists, so that you just label those who aren't like you as fanboys from the other side.

They exist to his brain. Non-fanboys are people who love Apple unconditionally and hate Samsung with every fiber of their being. If you do that, you're clearly unbiased because no one without bias could do anything else.

Both suck equally. No one wants these phone

The butthurt is plain and obvious, majerk. Not everyone wants a Note. That option has been available for most polls, no reason it shouldn't for this one. I just don't find the features worth the nearly $1K cost.

If that's the case, why even click, type a comment and post it? Oh wait...attention.

Don't cry about it, darkkmite. #NoMercy

Pretty sure if this poll was "iPhone 7 or iPhone 8" then SYSTEM_LORD's first comment and maherk's reply were the same as here, you'll be on cheerleading for maherk. [waiting for lame "you're a fake" reply and no valid counter to my claim]

I wouldn't be cheering Majerk. Stop being a fakeboy and actually think for yourself for once.

Oh I forgot, even if maherk says something that you like, you would still disagree with him because you keep things here very personal. Sorry that we have offended you :(

Because I wanted to let everyone know that I have interest in phones other than Samsung. I would do the same in an iPhone article. Last time I checked, I have the right to voice my opinion, even if it doesn't go along with that of @$$hurt majerk or yourself.

Why do you need to let people know that? No one cares, just buy what you want.

If you commented that on an iPhone poll, then mxy/Flash will be coming for you, no mercy. LOL

So says the guy who is riding on the coattails of the Samsung flock.

System_Lord has a point tho. The article doesn't ask samsung fans specifically, its a poll for everyone. So I agree that a neither option should have been in the poll. It should be that way for every poll unless its targeted at a specific fan base and indicates so. Fair is fair.

The poll is for those which are thinking to purchase one of them.. as was so far tones of polls for Iphone, which one or how much storage you will go for! Those which prefers Android they should also request option "None"!? Doesn't make any sense! The poll is made for those are interested, as is Note series, for those people wanting to use existing features and willing to pay for those.. simple as that. "There is no standing still because time is moving forward."

That's like telling one of you guys who always comment on apple posts to stop griefing on their articles lol

So tell them that.

I am surprised that no one is saying that buying a note 8 from Samsung is a great way to buy it. Promotional buys from 200-450.00 discount for turning in your old phones.
