    So with the Note 9 only about 2 months away and plenty rumours/leaks going, are you considering upgrading your Note 8 and if so, what would be your main decider/s for doing so?
    I'm well happy with N8 but if I for under 1k can get 512gb storage, 8gb ram, closer to 4000mah battery (maybe even faster charging) camera even better than S9+, upgraded front cam (maybe even a dual) s-pen we know will come with new stuff just not what yet.
    Improved DeX experience, Bixby 2.0
    Stereo speakers
    What else could sway you?
    Forget about the under screen fp scanner, it won't happen

    I would really like an s-pen with a microphone for using speech to text discretely without holding the phone mic up close and see the text being typed

    I will check out the next pixel too and it'll probably between that and the note 9 for me. whilst I am a big fan of the note there are still things that Samsung do that annoy me so the pixel is worth a look. I like the s pen but I'm not an extensive user.

    Not planning on it - unless my Note8 gets run over by a dump truck, then I probably will. I may decide to go with a 2-year replacement cycle so that I can get more use for my money.

    Think with the price of these phones being so high, there might be Slow down of sales, the last iPhone and s9 series have shown this. These phones are the price of home computers now days and most don't upgrade those once a year.

    I don't know what I'll do, the note 8 is doing fine, really no reason to update, even with the little upgrades OP listed.

    That's very true Trucker, upgrade once a year is really a WANT rather than NEED for the vast majority.
    I'll get the Note 9 and sell the Note8 and the difference will be 300 give/take a little, I'm OK with that.
    Here a lot of the carriers/providers only do discounts if you sign for 24 months now so it's easier/cheaper to buy/sell yourself

    I will upgrade. Having the ATT next every year plan, it wouldn't make sense not too. Unless I wait for the S10 that's rumored to come out early in the year.

    I have a wait and see attitude right now. I'm extremely happy with my Note 8 and certainly don't need to upgrade. It would be a want rather than a need. Same with the Gear S4. My S3 is great but if they integrate Bixby or Google assistant into the next watch, I'll get that too.

    I feel like I'm in a good spot this year. If I choose to stick it out with the Note 8/S3 combo, I'll be just fine.

    I have tmobile Jump plan (not jump on demand, mine is one a year). So I'll wait a bit after it's out, but see no reason not to. Preorder the note 8 was a pain for me, so it wasn't worth it. Won't do it again.

    Doubt it. Given the leaked video posted on another forum it looks like a note 8 with a finger print scanner that's been moved a little lower to appease everyone who thought it's placement on the note 8 was the worst thing that's ever happened to them.

    I stuck with the note 5 for 2 years, shouldn't be a problem to do the same with the 8

    Why on earth would I update? The Note 8 is THE finest phone I've ever used. Plus with the credits to my account, the Note 8 on Verizon will wind up costing me under $275.00 I'd be crazy to give up a deal and a great phone like the Note 8.

    it would take a lot to make me upgrade. big battery (my biggest and loudest complaint), flat screen (apps are not optimized and the s pen doesn't like it), and a non glass back (fragile fragile fragile). funny thing is those are my complaints about all the new Samsungs.

    however, if the pixel 3 has wireless charging probably go with that.

    Looking at the current renders, I think it will have the same 3300mah battery. With the FPS sensor below the camera, they have not made any room to even consider a larger battery.

    I really haven't heard anything so far to consider going from Note 8 to Note 9.

    I haven't decided yet... I know I am not getting a new phone until Nov/Dec so I have time If I want to get one this year.
    The info I have seen, and I admit it has been over a month since I looked, hasn't impressed me. I have 4 phones on my plan and I am the only one that always wants to upgrade. So I take their upgrades or I just buy it when I want it!

    Other than a faster processor I don't see the need. I'll wait until the note 10.

    I doubt it. I am determined to keep this 8+ for 2 years or more. although the keytwo might make me change my mind.

    No way! Not enough differences with Note 8. I was expecting at least a front fingerprint scanner, so I'll wait for the Note 10.
    Manufacturers get an interesting phone out every 2 years. The one in between is just to make money. Note 8 was the difference, Note 9 is to make money and Note 10 will be the one to buy again.
