    We said that before but I'm gonna point that again.
    Having this amazing phone for 6 months, it's thr only one that constantly works fast, even faster with time, have gr8 camera great battery life despite having 5.9 LCD screen, great speakers and always reliable, by contrast i can't say that about the sammy LG phones i had, no any others.

    Huawei need to step up their game with marketing, the Note 8 is underwhelming, Mate 10 looks to be a winner!

    What you think?

    if the Mate 10 is 2:1, then i have no interest.

    If it is a Mate 9 with Wireless Charging and an Amoled, I'm buying it day one

    Depends on price. Previous note 7 owners can get a note 8 for around$500 with old phone trade in... The mate would have to be significantly better if it were the same price.

    Nothing spectacular new with the Note 8. Hopefully Huawei can change the game with the Mate 10

    Honestly....i don't see what the mate 10 can add over the note 8. Guess we'll have to wait and see

    Considering that Note 8 brought nothing new to the table, Huawei has a big chance to deliver.

    What would Huawei do then to make it successful, especially at the $1k mark

    No phone is worth $1000. But phone are always evolving. New features, longer lasting battery etc. We'll see how the new Mate 10 is when it's out

    Mate 10 can have better camera, finally IP68 rating, great real big screen hopefully not too tall and thin, better battery with 10nm CPU should provide a big winner vs awful battery of the Note 8, heck Mate 9 battery last much longer than S8+.

    Performance will be better probably and hopefully speakers will get improved and the DAC as well, the LG V30 is a bit temping with it's Quad DAC, but it will have awful battery(3200mhA).

    Mate 10 will probably be expensive in the first weeks, hopefully not that much, otherwise it gonna get ignored.

    I think battery life is really the only place where the mate 10 can beat the note 8 on specs

    If the mate 10 gonna match note 8 in specs but beat it in audio and battery, that could be enough

    Mate 10 could improve screen (AMOLED), IP68, processor, RAM, possibly a stylus like the S pen (Translation on the fly sounds great). Otherwise it's still a seriously underrated phone. My friend got excited about the Note 8's abilities to alter the blur after a picture has been taken until I showed him the Note 9 already does this.

    ^It's difficult for another phone maker to make any type of SPen competition when the SPen is Wacom technology who Samsung had bought shares in.

    It'll also have a much faster processor than the Note 8. Camera can match or beat it as well

    Even if the processor was 100x faster than the note 8,i am not sure that that really matters to most people outside of spec whores or those who use very intensive apps... Which are really in the small minority.

    Yeah Samsung locked that one up. No one has been able to provide a stylus anywhere nearly as functional as Samsung has on the note lineup, even though it has been many years since the note was introduced.

    I replace my Samsung Note 4 with a Mate 9 in January. I honestly do not miss the S pen. I do miss the removable battery a bit, though. But this Mate 9 has been an outstanding phone for me.

    I did discover that my Mate 9 was one that did not have the fast UFS 2.1 memory installed as it was advertised to have. Ran some memory benchmarks and it was noticably slower than it should have been with UFS 2.1 memory. I believe that Samsung had the same issue with the S8. Must have been an issue with supply of UFS 2.1 memory for a while.

    Still a great phone.

    Now that V30 was announced, and me using Fiio K1 DAC on the Mate 9 while still have amazing battery life, kinda makes the Mate 9 even better than all phones, it just offers the best battery life, great screen great performance, great cameras.

    Mate 10 could be a real huge hitter.

    I've been a big fan of LG since having the G5 and G6 but since getting the Huawei P10 just over a week ago I'm hooked and already started saving my pennies for the Mate 10 instead of the V30 or Note 8

    i actually like LG and Samsung, and what they do with their android skin. And i love EMUI, granted the Mate 9 is my only experience with it, but it is great. Seems like it smashed LG And Samsung together and came out with something great
