    I hate the glass; I wish they'd lose that (and bring back removable batteries), but not holding my breath. Really, if I could have a Note 4 with a bit of a RAM/ CPU boost, add Samsung Pay and the Iris scan, I'd probably be pretty happy. I'd rather lose the edges as well - not that I want a huge bezel, but I've never really seen a good use of the edge, it makes it more awkward to hold, and it really messes up most case protection. If they can make it with those edges, surely they could make it flat without needing large frames on the side.

    128GB minimum or 64GB + SD. Pref 128 + SD. Bonus points for even more (my phone is CONSTANTLY full).
    Whatever battery it takes to have the life a new Note 4 did (before updates and age lessened that) - an all day phone, with plenty of use.
    Replaceable battery. I don't mind if it isn't convenient for mid day replacement, but I don't want the phone to just get continually worse with no way to recover battery life if I keep it for 2 years. I have liked the ability to yank the battery from a phone when it is frozen and will not shut down (and soft resets fail), but I've only needed that a few times... it could probably wait for home.
    No glass back. Don't need to see family members continually finding new ways to crack parts of the phone that have no real reason for being glass, added to the complete inability to keep it looking remotely clean for more than the 2 seconds it takes to end up with hand prints all over the back.
    As durable as possible with removable battery. Care more about drop/impact resistance and the screen than dust/liquid, but some liquid resistance is nice. Don't need it to be able to go underwater or anything - wouldn't trust that anyways.
    Optional edge. I know; they like it being different... still don't see the point, other than making all the cases lousy.
    Iris Scan
    Hopefully good quality fingerprint scanner that is easily reached - up at the top may be too far on a Note.
    Wish the antenna would allow voice/data simultaneously as they used to (<=Note3)
    Less extra software, with hopefully faster android updates.
    Not sure on numbers, but all for any improvement to the camera, especially in focus speed, clarity, resolution.
    Wireless charging built in.
    Good speakers are nice, but not important, I usually mute everything but calls and half the time those are going through some other speaker. Good quality mic that doesn't get too much background noise is a little more important.
    More RAM. Whatever they put in, would probably like a little more.


    If they were innovating software wise (not that I want bloatware, but occasionally they push something out that really integrates with the phone's hardware or unique features... my family loves their Samsung pay for having way too many cards at hand for every outdated little register that doesn't take Android Pay - they'll even ask cashiers to put it on the keyboard swipe strips), I'd like to see more happening in terms of integration with smart devices, wearables, and cars. I don't think they're really pushing in that direction though - have to hope for that from 3rd party apps. Maybe if their AI thing is really, really, really good about location aware activities and ease of use... but not expecting a ton there.
    I'd also like it to be easier to partially unlock things, or temporarily turn off the screen lock - maybe even lock it to an app but leave the app running for a bit (for things you need to hand off to someone for any reason, or for something you want to run but need your hands off for a bit).
    Improved dual tasking - in addition to two windows, perhaps a mode to keep both apps running as if they were foreground for fast swapping, or view a part of the app, etc.

    Lots of things I would like but I'd settle for anything with a Note 7 aspect ratio. Hate the long skinny S8 series

    16/9 aspect ratio

    S8 plus + dual cam + embedded fingerprint sensor + bigger battery.

    That's all I ask for

    Note 8 Simple. It should be the best thing Samsung has ever made.

    #1 has to be #1 . It has to have a removable battery. This is a non starter considering what happened with the 7. If they don't have the removable battery it won't be trusted.

    Other stuff
    - SDXC card removable
    - WATER Resistant to 2 meters. (yep hard to pull off with the removable battery, life is hard get over it.)
    - Dual Sim Cards.
    - Headphone Jack, Also front speakers
    - Biggest and best processor.
    - Most memory on Market on board. X2 yes times 2
    - S Pen has to stay. It is called the note after all.
    - Solar charging back plate/wireless as well. - Hey we are dreaming here after all
    - fingerprint scanner, bluetooth, nfc, GPS etc... all the stuff that everything has.
    - IR blaster would be fun to bring back. I liked it on the Note 4.
    - Dual 22mp Cameras out back. 8mp front facing camera

    Based on your Avatar, Congratulations on a great series against the Bruins and sincere apologies for the way your Team and Coaches were treated in Boston after Game 6... that is NOT the norm for Boston Fans! You got a bunch of rich kids who could afford those seats close to the ice acting like total fools and making the rest of us look bad!!! Good luck in the next series...

    Dream and dream I'm not to sure what is possible but Samsung do need to really break the barriers after the Note 7 disaster.
    I think it would look good if they gave it 8 gigs RAM to align with the Note 8 name, 512 gigs internal memory with possible expansion via memory card for another 512 to make the first Terabyte phone on the market, IR blaster back and also the stereo speakers rumoured plus the premium head phones also rumoured, big as possible battery plus both fast and wireless fast charge, genuine edge2edge display wether QHD or 4K I don't care as 99.9% wont notice the difference anyway, fingerprint scanner in the screen instead of on the back and some serious good cameras both front and rear, rear has to be dual cam to keep up with other high ends coming out, screen size 6.2 or 6.4 depending on what size they can cram it into

    Dreaming? Sounds pretty damned realistic to me... I'd say you're asking for what should be!!!

    Are you listening Samsung?

    I would love to see the Note 8 a little thicker than the S8+ to allow the S-Pen and a larger battery.
    Maybe a little camera improvements.

    But they better move that damn FPS under the front display.......

    Note 8 is deffo gonba have dual camera with x2 zoom.

    The new processor will also be included and potentially the 1000fps capture also that Samsung developed (Not the Sony version).

    Smaller battery for sure.
