    I've been absent for a long while as well.... and I still have my Note 4 going strong and kept to KitKat! I passed up the 5 and gratefully avoided the 7 debacle....had many friends who loved the 7 and hated having to give it up. I am addicted to my Spen and anxious to see the Note 8 as well!
    KitKat? Man, you are in need for some serious upgrading

    I know, but My phone was original with KitKat and knew so many people that wished they could go back to it after lollipop update, so I decided to hold my phone back, and to this day it runs great (hope I don't jinx myself) It's just going to be time for new soon and can't bring myself to go with any without my Spen!

    Hey There Everyone!

    As one of the former Note 7 owners who RELUCTANTLY turned mine back in, despite contemplating hanging onto it regardless of all the BS on turning them in, I am EXTREMELY anxious to see the Note 8 return to carriers like you all.
    Also like you, I was more or less forced to purchase the S7 Edge and seriously wish to sell it and get my hands on a Note 8 (Whenever they arrive - which there are more assumptions than ever out there!)

    Like many other Note 7 owners, I reached out to Samsung to inquire if they would offer any of us some type of formal offer on purchasing the 8 - perhaps a Pre-Release especially for those of us who had to return our 7's. This was a small portion of the email response I received from Samsung. (Would love to know if any other forum members here obtained the exact same verbiage as well?

    We are glad to know that you were happy with the Note7 phone and its usage but as customers safety is our paramount priority we discontinued Note7 phone due to battery issue. I am not sure when Note8 will be released or if it will be made available or not, I have forwarded your request. However, we are not sure if there will be any separate offers and program for the previous Note7 users.

    It seems that NO ONE can literally identify the exact date the Note 8 will show itself in stores, everything i read says a different date - but Fall seems to be the consensus- right?? Sure wish they'd give all of us Note 7 Owners SOMETHING - like I said, first rights to Pre-Order the thing. I too am a bit tired of this S7 Edge!

    Semper Fidelis,

    Gunny

    Latest rumors (changes every day) points to a late August release. I don't consider first rights to pre-order much of a benefit.
    It doesn't really matter if you pre-order the minute they go live or a week before they deliver, you'll pretty much get the on the same day. One thing I would like to see Samsung do is to reward current Samsung owners with some sort of loyalty discount. Car manufacturers do it, why can't they?
    Some jump to several phones over the course of a year. How about a little discount for those strictly Samsung owners or at least currently have one?

    OMG, if this video is true, Note 8 is going to be a freaking huge disappointment to me. It's going to be crushed by iPhone 8

    - FPS at same position with S8
    - 3300 mAH battery
    - $950-$1000

    Yes, a most disappointing prospect for note 8 but only if this was the note 8 - we don't know for sure. At this stage no-one knows definitely what iPhone 8 will be so I disagree that it will crush this. I'd rather have kept note 7! No way I'm going back to iPhone closed ecosystem, gave that up with 4. No way I'm buying an S8+ with an s-pen so I for one will hold onto S7 edge for another year. Don't like Pixel & will never buy LG.

    We go through this every year. I'm getting the Note 8 just like I have with all the previous Notes. A Note is what I like, it's what I want and it's what I'm going to get as soon as it's available for pre order. I'm sure Samsung will sweeten the pot with some free goodies, a price discount would be nice but I'm not expecting it. If you don't want the Note 8 for any number of reasons, that's great, go with whatever makes you happy. But I'm a Sammy fan and a Note fan, so I'm just waiting for the debut like it's Christmas morning. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค˜

    I really wanted to get back with the Galaxy Note series, but the smallish battery is kinda off putting.

    Just wanting to check in. I have been MIA for awhile. Been a tough year, seemed to start the same time as the Note 7 debacle.

    Been using this S7 edge since and I am tired of it. I have actually never really liked it. Hurry Samsung!! I need my Note phone.
    So much Amen. I hate this phone with a passion.

    I need the Note 8 to hurry up as well. I don't know how much longer my Nexus 6 can hold up lol.
    That's a capable phone too, and a really nice sized screen. Wish the display was as nice as the new Samsung's though

    I have had S7 Edge for a while until I switched to S8 Plus 3 weeks back. I'm a big fan of Note series but this S8 Plus is amazing. I had every note at lunch but having this phone now gives me pause. I believe I'll be holding out for few months post release and wait for a good deal to pick one up. Don't feel in a hurry to replace S8 Plus like I did with S7 Edge.
    I was also wondering about deals. Now though I'm on T-Mobile so unfortunately they aren't in the retailer stores so I can't do those nice Best Buy and related store gift card promos

    Even though my "temporary" S8 has more screen to body, I miss having a bigger phone.
    Did you not get the 8+?

    I got a $400 gift card from best buy when I got my S7 Edge this last black Friday. I was also getting $10 credit from VZ. If I kept the phone for 2 years, it would have cost me $80 lol. Crazy!

    Not sure what kind of deals black Friday will being to Note 8. If you think about it, it's only 2 months after release. Not that far out.

    Nope. Just couldn't stomach the down payment x 2 phones = $260. Because I knew the Note8 would be out later this year, we settled on the S8 to get away from from the S7E.

    I hate hate hate the S7 they gave me to replace my Note 7. I am counting down the seconds until I can stop using it and get my Note 8. Just hope Samsung didn't F it up. The Note 7 was perfection. Except for the battery of course.

    I hate the S7E as well. What I hate even more is that I'm not eligible for an upgrade, because I waited till the last possible second to get rid of my N7. Now I have to pay about 135, that brings me to half the cost of the S7E, to get the N8. N7 owners should be able to immediately upgrade IMO. But I know that argument is just beating a dead horse

    Samsung.com will probably run a sale on the Tmobile version though. Also, best Buy after a couple months will carry the unlocked ones so they will probably do a sale too.

    I'm just gonna be prepared to shell out the full retail. I knew that I would have to take this hit going down the road back in January. Ugh. But I believe the phone will be worth it. Anything has to be better than this piece of trash. My camera just randomly stopped working Monday. I'm over it.

    That battery could be 1000mah for all I care, all long as the phone is fully optimized so that 1000mah (or whatever batter capacity it turns out to be) I can get a full days experience doing the things I want, and the phone should. I'll throw the trust out there with Sammy.

    I paid off my Pixel XL to Verizon a year early this week because I couldn't upgrade otherwise. I didn't want the S7 or 7e, having played with them in a store and not liking them but I have really not liked the Pixel. I am waiting impatiently. I still miss the Note 7.The s8+ is ok, I have a friend who has one, but I want the pen and I am hopeful the dual camera set up will be amazing.
