    Is the T-Mobile Note 8 the only one that seems to have all the bells and whistles working?

    Not on Verizon.
    us on Verizon has to do it different by adding the app we want to record in the Game Launcher and record it that way

    That is one of the downsides to unlocked handsets. The way most people get around that is to flash your carriers official firmware from SamMobile using Odin to do so. That will then give you the features like WiFi Calling and VoLTE etc

    Not sure I'm ready to go there yet...but doesn't that also open up all the bloatware and things going away? I'll probably wait and see what Oreo brings. Other than the wifi calling I'm not missing anything. In fact, you mentioned VoLTE...I think I have that turned on and it sounds like it's working...

    Just spent about 6 hours going through this thread. Learned a few things. Changed a few things. Changed some back - which took longer!

    Great thread, should be required reading for new Note 8 keepers owners.

    Discovered from another thread in this forum that touching and holding the focus point on the screen when taking a photo will lock exposure and focus. Very handy!

    I'm willing to wait for Oreo to make sure it's ready for the Note 8. I just got a replacement Note 8 a few days back so I'm in no hurry-enjoying that this one is working as it should.

    I've installed Microsoft Launcher, ran it once and then returned to the stock launcher. The next day, surprise! My wallpaper has automatically changed to the Bing Picture of the Day.

    Perfect!

    What didn't you like about the Microsoft launcher?

    I really liked it, but there were a couple of busy days and I had no time to set it up. Therefore, I couldn't find anything on my phone

    Anyway, since I'm a fan of MS services and use OneDrive, OneNote, Office 365 and the PC version of Outlook on daily basis, it's only a matter of time since ML will become my main launcher.

    You can resurrect Scrapbook by downloading from Galaxy apps provided you saved prior cuttings in Samsung cloud. Eliminate the wifi requirement and it will immediately populate your app. I thought I had lost Scrapbook on my Note 8...much relief.

    I use a Case-Mate padded folio case w/naked screen on both S8+ and Note 8. Strangely enough these cases make the devices seem smaller (particularly S8+). I suspect due to padding the corners rather than relying on hard cases which accentuate the hard, angular feel of the extremes. Just a thought.

    I would like to use a folio case, but haven't found one I like yet.

    I know...... right?

    Wake up in the morning, my beautiful Black note 8 is out of its Spigen case, and I start admiring the highest ever rated amazingly over the top infinity screen, download different wonderful wallpapers, and basically just gaze in awe of the display

    Loving, loving, loving my Note 8!!!!!!!
    I feel exactly the same way. This spigen case was built for the Midnight Black Note 8.

    I discovered that the Apple airpod works better on the Note 8 than the iPhone. When I get a call it goes directly to the airpod on the note 8 but not so for the iPhone. pleasantly surprised.

    I have never tried this before. I've seen the setting however. I may look at it now to see if I like it.

    also Mighty Text works better than Pushbullet. the text on the desktop sends it instantly. this is more of a app suggestion lol but I do like mighty text a lot when you want to text on a PC computer via Chrome.

    Also just found "custom chat" for bixby, not quick commands.

    custom chat, at least im pretty sure thats what it was called. In custom chat you can type in what you want to say for a command and then type in what bixby will say in return. example of the one i setup below.

    My command to bixby: Is it the boys bedtime?
    Bixbys respone: Yes it is time for you boys to go to bed

    this is the only one ive setup so far for when the boys decide to say its not bedtime i can have some fun lol
    Yes! I am currently using that feature so my bixby can talk to my Google home for me lol.

    So Google home now control my home and bixby just talk to her so I only have to talk to 1 assistant but I get multiple tasks completed. I love bixby!

    For example: at night time I used the good night commands to have bixby tell Google to turn off my lamp and read me a bed time story. And in the morning you turn the lights on etc. However, I just use 1 short command.

    I haven't tried it yet, but my N7 wouldn't recognize with or without my glasses. this would be an improvement if it works for me.
    Wipe yoour eyes in the morning before iris unlock, especially if after drinking. It doesn't like clogged foggy eyes. other than that great.
