    We know it has a smaller battery and a bigger screen but maybe Samsung have really improved their software or processors to make the battery last longer. I'm out most of the day and don't want to lag a battery pack with me...

    To be honest, no i dont think it will, but theres no real way of testing which phone lasts longer for someone else. Your use and habits are different than mine or someone elses

    the Note 7 had battery life equal to if not better than the S7 Edge, despite being smaller.

    Hard to tell. I'm thinking it won't but it shouldn't be far off. The Note 7 had a decent battery loft. The Note 8 is meant to bring confidence back to the Note line and Samsung, so it should be equal or better battery life I'm thinking. Can't wait till the 23rd.

    But I still don't understand its a power phone. Samsung have put a 4000 into the c9 pro (very slim phone) a 5000 into the a9 pro and even a 3600 j7 pro.. They must have something new up their sleeve?

    You forgot the SPen takes up space that could have been given to a bigger battery.

    It used to be a power phone. That changed with the Note 5

    Really now how do you figure that when in every measurable way . The note 5 was a faster, better built phone. Improved camera and more feature rich S pen then the note 4 . Let alone the s8, the difference between it and the note 4 is light years apart An I'm being kind

    I expect the S8 plus to have better battery life, but only by like 5%. The screen size and battery size is almost the same.

    Some people are of the mentality it isn't a power phone unless they can swap the battery, something that's utter ridiculous because 99% of us are near a wall outlet or car on a regular basis. I haven't had a spare battery since my Note 2, even than I almost never swapped it because it's a pain to take the phone out of the case repeatedly.

    My Note 5 averaged around 36 hours on battery, maybe it's because I prefer using a tablet or computer over a phone all day.

    More fragile, smaller battery, built more for form over function.

    I didn't say that was a bad thing. It was probably a good business decision. But the Note brand did change its focus and is continuing that trend with the 8.

    It used to be a niche phone for people who wanted more. More battery, more functionality and more screen. It's now a major multi media phone geared at anyone who can afford it. Much like the S8+.

    Nope. Nothing to do with stupid swappable batteries.

    It's what most people complained about, makes me curious as to why you no longer call it a power phone?

    Because the industry has changed. Every phone is a "power" phone. There is nothing separating the Note brand from the S series save for an S-pen. The Note brand used to be more powerful spec wise than any other phone.

    Not the case anymore... At all.

    I'm most likely buying a Note 8, but I can still admit this.

    Honestly the only thing different about the new Notes and the old ones are the lack of IR blaster, smaller unreplaceable battery, and looks good. To me those doesn't make it a non power user device. They still are able to do more than the usual phones.

    exactly ,the whole power phone title that bestowed on the note 4 is way over played . fact is all the notes after the note 4 are a better phone in every way an it's not subjective those are the facts . Oh an the battery in the n8 will be bigger then the battery in the beloved n4 that's another fact

    I expect that it will have better battery life, or at least rather close to the same. The prior notes tended to have their kernel and other power management settings geared towards more longevity, rather than raw performance like the S series.

    Nah, it never was. That's just a myth made up afterwards. It used to be a really big phone with the latest specs in a period when a generation for phones was roughly 6 months long. Now advances are slower, so the lines between spring and fall releases are very fine and so the differences between the Note and the S series are going to be pretty minimal.

    Take out the word power, and we're saying virtually the same things. So yeah I agree.

    There isn't much separating the Note from the rest of the industry anymore. Luckily it's original weapon is still its most vital. The S-pen.

    Dun think it will be better since the processor is the same as S8.
