    What all would you like on Note 8
    Smartphones today are just so good, that it's to imagine 'what's next'. The one thing I would like to see is a lower placement on the fingerprint scanner. I'm happy with it on the back, just needs to be a little more accessible to everyone

    The next thing would be with regards to the battery. No I'm not worried about any problems, I would just like to see a nice big battery that lasts me 8+ SOT

    The dream for me is to only charge my device every 2nd day. How nice would that be

    I know rumors don't really mean much at this point, but I have read that the Note 8 may have a 4000 mAh battery. That coupled with the Snapdragon 835 could make for some pretty decent battery life😁

    My S7 Active has a 4000 mAh and I love it... if it were just a little more 'High End-ish' (yeah, I love making up words) phone, I might just be staying with it and not waiting for anything!!! :-)

    One of the things I like about the Note is the pen, I do use it. It will be interesting to see how the S8 Active turns out, maybe that will be the phone for youツ

    No, I was just being facetious - I love and used the S-Pen all the time with my Note 5 and Note 7s! Note 8 it will be!

    After reading about LG G6 another thing comes to mind. I would like them to keep notification led.

    I'm sure if you speak to any Blackberry users, they will tell you, the RGB led is an absolute life saver

    Being able to have a custom LED colour for each one of your Apps is great. I can be working on something important and see a 'Blue' led flashing. I instantly know it's Facebook and not important.

    So having a notification led is definitely a crucial aspect for me and I would also love to see it there.

    A flat display, at least as an option. Also, it needs to bring improvements in most areas, not just being a GS6 with a Pen(Note 5) and GS7 with a Pen + iris scanner (Note 7). The jump in tech was actually there between the GS4 to the Note 3 and the GS5 to the Note 4. Now the Note just feels like the S line but with the Pen.

    I looked seriously at a GS7 before I bought my Note 7 and I didn't see that much of a similarity to make the statement you just made above. I also don't believe that the Note 8 will be a GS8+ with a pen... but we'll see!

    The stand out feature of the Note 7 was the iris scanner. It also only had the curved display, which some might see it as a great feature. Aside from that, I really didn't see any difference between the more comparable GS7 Edge and the Note 7. Same camera sensor, same SoC, just the few extra features that are included with the Stylus. Not enough time passed to see how performance was going to be in the long run. But aside from that, I really couldn't see anything that made the Note 7 stand apart from the GS7 Edge, it was similar to the GS6 and Note 5.

    Unlike the GS4 and Note 3. Slightly different designs, but noticeable. The GS4 had the S600 while the Note 3 had the S800 SoC. GS4 maxed out at 1080p 30fps video recording and playback, while the Note 3 had 1080p at 60fps and introduced 4k recording at 30fps. 2GB of RAM vs 3GB RAM. VoLTE,

    Then it was the GS5 with the S801, 2GB RAM, improved display quality over the Note 3, questionable ISO Cell Camera imo, but at least they tried something new. The Note 4 came with the S805, 3GB RAM, a 1440p display, another new sony camera sensor, and some other changes.

    See, there were a lot of changes made on a hardware level between the S Line and the Note Line and the S. In this case, the Note 5 is pretty much the same as the GS6, and the Note 7 was pretty much the same as the GS7 Edge, yet all the changes and new hardware were brought into the GS7 over the Note 5 and the GS8 over the Note 7. The iris scanner was the stand out feature.

    Their focus has mainly been on the design and the Note line is really an after thought. At this point, I'll be surprised if they introduce even a new camera sensor to the Note 8. I don't see many changes from coming to the Note 8 that aren't already on the GS8.

    I'm still using my Note 4 because it serves me really well, but I've had zero reason to upgrade to a newer Note. It's not the same as it use to be imo.

    Justice a thought...if Samsung came out with a f1.4 aperture on the Note8, wouldn't that essentially negate the need for a dual lens camera? Just have the lens at around 14mm focal distance and incorporate a 3x optical zoom into the lens.

    ... and stereo speakers.....
    I forgot about my pre-Blackberry (pre-Notes) days (first cell phone was in '96!). After years of standard flip phones, I "graduated" to the LG VX9800, 9900, 10000, etc., then the Env series. They were flip phones with outside screens and normal phone keys, but fuller screens and QWERTY keyboards inside. But I really did miss the stereo speakers they all had when I switched to BB. To me they sounded better than even some of the tinier portable Bluetooth speakers available today.

    My wish list for Note 8 would be.....
    -Smaller bezels than S8/S8+ without rounded corners
    -6.4 inch 4K infinity display
    -Gorilla Glass 6 with 6GB Ram
    -A newer exynos processor
    -Dual Camera each with OIS and larger aperture that enhances picture quality rather than adding gimmicks
    -Dual front facing Harmon Kardon stereo speakers
    -Fingerprint sensor embedded under display
    -Improved S Pen features
    -3750-4000 mAH battery
    -Android O
    - Standard 256GB internal storage

    Although price would probably be $1000 or more if Samsung really does include all these specs.

    That's probably the most realistic list I've seen yet... good job!

    IR blaster!
    Removable battery
    Expandable memory
    But apparently those are regressive thoughts on phones now.
    Keep paring it back Samsung.
    IPhone sales would be excited.
    A smart phone without all the extras is just an iPhone.

    A battery that can compete with the Mate 9.

    Other wants
    - a screen ranging from 5.7 to 6.2 inches.

    - A 4000 mah battery with fast charge.

    - front facing speakers

    I've had two Note phones, the 4 & the 5. Went with the S7 Edge instead of the 7. I'm seeing a trend where each Note is getting bigger and bigger, and i don't like it. There's got to be a size limit on this phone, or we'll need a backpack to carry it around. Plus, if you add in a decent case for protection, say Otterbox, you'll need a third hand just to operate it. IMHO, 6" should be the size limit, and maybe a little thicker to allow for a better battery and other goodies under the hood.

    I think it's just the opposite. The Note has been getting smaller since the Note 3. The screen size has been 5.7" since 2013. But, the size of the phone itself has been getting gradually smaller.
    I think they need a good 6.4" screen or larger and just make it wider than the S8+, not any taller.
    It's just a small tweak, but I want the option to customize the navigation buttons by changing the shapes and colors of the buttons, not the whole navigation bar.

    OK, that might work for you, but i haven't got hands like a basketball player. Wider is definitely out for me.

    I suppose if a Note phone has never worked for you, you should just go with the s8+. No point forcing yourself, is there? My girlfriend has small palms and has owned Note phones with no problems. Why should entire Note phone user base have to adapt to S series users or should be S series users.

    I've had two note phones in the past, the 4 & the 5. As long as the 8 is the same width as those, i'm good.
