    If the issue with the Note 7 had never happened, would the Note 8 be that much better to get it?

    Personally, I'd go with the 7. I don't mind the bigger screen size of the 8 but the 7 was perfect I feel. Not enough new features that I would have upgraded-would have been fine waiting for N9 or even N10.0! Can you imagine what the 10's going to be like?!

    The Note 7 was the first phone I was planning to keep for a couple of years. It was great. If I still had it, I would not get the Note 8. But we all know how that ended, so I'm awaiting my Note 8 to replace my V20 place holder.

    Faster SoC, dual camera, bigger/better display, 2GB more ram. I think the improvements are in line with what year to year upgrades are these days. If I still had my 7, I'd get the 8 no question.

    Ditto that. I strongly believe I will get each Note that comes. Imo, each year will bring enough improvement to justify getting it.

    I would have kept my note 7 and probably wouldve waited on the Note 8 and kept the 7 a bit longer.

    If you're the type to get the latest phone every year then you are a totally different animal and the question wouldn't apply to those... but there are people that are going into the N8 that still had their N5 or N4. I think if I had gotten a N7, it would hold me until the N9 or even N10.

    I still run by the old routine of when I bought the latest phone under contract at $199 and held for two years and then upgraded. The Note 7 I feel would still be so fun, it'd hold me until the N9 or later.

    Yeah, unfortunately the days of $199 subsidized upgrades are probably done (actually I could probably get an S8 at that now)... but I won't go without a fight!

    I really liked the Note 7 but I have enjoyed my s8 plus so much more just based on performance alone. So I can't wait till my Note 8 comes in tomorrow.

    I know what you mean. I wonder if I didn't have to give up my note 7 if I would still feel that way. It really was a beautiful phone. I love my note 8 though. I did think the screen was going to be too tall and not wide enough but it works great, and is really nice for split screen. Also, this phone seems crazy fast.

    that's kinda hard to say, there would've been more to it than just the faster SoC and dual camera and a few new features... but again we won't know what happened now. Time to see what the Note 9 now offers once the Note 8s are in all hands that want it.

    I think if the Note7 did not have the battery problems, there would be 5 additional features on this year's Note8. From what I see, the Note8 is basically the Note7 with a two more features (dual camera and screen size).

    Wasn't everything you can so with the SPen on the Note8 available on the Note7?

    Is this with AT&T?

    Yes. Sorry didn’t make clear... business account. Carriers still have subsidized contracts for Business accounts. We deploy a lot of phones at the company’s I work for and happen to have a boss that lets me use a line eligible for upgrade to buy a phone for myself at Corp prices. I’m on the phone lot for work purposes so it works out for both.

    I went into the Note 7 with the plan to use that phone for several years (3 +). So i would not have upgraded to the note 8 or even the note 9. I was able to use my note 7 until the end of January of this year and i was very happy with it.

    Now with the note 8 (should arrive today YAY), i plan to keep this phone maybe even longer (i feel it is maybe a little more future proof).

    I really have no need to upgrade every year, i had always been on a 2 year replacement cycle when i used iPhones (passed my old iPhones down to family members). None of them want to switch to android so i will have no real push to get rid of my note 8 for a long time.

    I would not have upgraded to the Note 8. I really loved the Note 7. That being said, the Note 8 is an awesome device. Now that prices for a top end device like the N8 are near $1k (more expensive than many laptops), and there are no subsidies being offered by carriers, I think it's likey I'll hold onto this phone until the Note 10 comes out.

    Let's see how the problems are handled, light leakage, etc. Maybe the Note 9.
