    I'm gonna skip the 8 and keep on using my Note 5 for another year.

    I bought a S8+ two months ago but I've been using my Note 5 as my daily since I installed a custom ROM a few months back that greatly improved the battery life. I can easily get 3-4 hrs usage now so it's actually useful as a phone now.

    Screw the Note 8, I could not be more disappointed in that crap that they unveiled today. Love my Note 5, best phone I've ever owned, and I will give it one more year of love! I don't know who Samsung thinks they are fooling by releasing that ridiculous device today. The S8++

    I'm now use note 4 and S6 edge. The curve screen is very bad memory to grab Note 8. When my S6 screen crack I pay very high price for the part. Another one when use screen proctractor it always have a gap at left and right screen when the cover move up. We cant put a glue at that. Screen protector will be crack at nearly the curve from the centre. May be it is because the curve. For me the flet screen more better and the curve screen is bad situation when you grab it very hard some app near curve active.

    Why didn't you like the note 8? It looks yummy AF! But seriously, I am curious.

    also if we order through Samsung, ebates giving $84 back.

    that's like $600 for note 8+gear 360 when you trade in note 5 and use ebates. With gear 360 priced at $229, we are paying $371 for note 8 effectively. Too cool.

    Well, I wasn't going to but I just pre-ordered one from Verizon Wireless. Guess I'm just hooked on the Note since the very first one.

    The Note 5 is still receiving security updates. As for the S pen, I don't think it matters what new options the Note 8 might have, it sure doesn't to me. I haven't even bothered to look and see what new things Samsung has done concerning the pen.

    I still have my Note 5 but have been using an S8+ with a Stylus. I really miss s-pen functionality and I have pre-ordered a note 8. Note 5 is still a very solid device I mainly want the water resistance, expandable storage
    and a few other fe................. No, really I am just a tech addict..


    Cheers,

    I've been trying some different ROMs on my Note 5 and finally have one I like that has some Note 8 features built in.

    I've been using my Note 5 as my daily and leaving my S7 Edge and S8+ at home. I have no plans on buying the Note 8. I've really cut back on my phone buying this year, it was getting out of hand.

    True. I need to go in store to compare them. For the first time, I'm actually considering multiple options.

    Actually, Verizon sells the new Note 8 already unlocked... no need to pay it off, no need to wait. Check with them, and you'll see that I'm right.

    Not sure if ALL Note 8's come unlocked, but I am sure that if you purchase from Verizon, it's unlocked on day 1.
