    I have been using Note 8 since 5-6 months now I wanna change my phone can anyone suggest good alternatives which one to go for:
    - OnePlus 6 (I really like the overall feel of the phone but people say its camera is ****, vibrations alerts are same like OP 5T that is very bad)
    - HTC U12 Plus (It looks so like Pixel 2)
    - LG G6 ThinQ

    Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS. It may be considered a ridiculous price but your talking about one of the only phones this year with in-screen fingerprint sensor, already had 4000 mah battery, 256gb storage, Leica triple camera setup and the other little things like wireless and fast charging that most other phones have.

    It's a phone that spec-wise the Note 9 (minus S-Pen of course) is just catching up on and even still behind without the in-glass FPS (that you probably won't even see until Galaxy Note (Note 10). That this is the type of phone you could probably keep a couple of years and maintain a wow factor than those spent close to that amount buying the 8 and upgrading Notes every year... for a battery and pen update?

    Of course those that can afford the Porsche RS are probably the ones that can afford a Porsche 911 Turbo and will upgrade their Porsche Design phones yearly too lol.

    I wouldn't recommend any of the phones listed so far as a Note 8 replacement. All have significant drawbacks. As it's July right now, we're a month or so away from the Note 9 if you wanted to stay Samsung, otherwise the only other Android I can recommend in good faith is either a Pixel 2, 2 XL or wait a couple months for the Pixel 3 or 3 XL.

    How much do you use the S-Pen? If you do, stick with a Note (a good, thin pen, just a pen, no button, is about $30 and has a battery that has to be recharged and, eventually replaced).

    So, as Mario said, if you don't want the Note 9, or don't want a Note at all, why not the Pixel 2, 2XL, 3 or 3XL? Great phones, no bloat - just no pens.

    Personally, I'll stick to the note series, but I'll skip the Note 9 and wait for the Note X.

    My Note 8 does everything I want it to and I like to write stuff down instead of type it, and I don't like having paper and pen on me.

    Yeah sadly it still won't ever be as good as a Pixel taking pictures even if it uses the Camera software.

    I don't see why you'd want to leave the Note 8, it's a great phone, the best if you ask me!
    If you want to stay Samsung and don't need the S-Pen, the GS9 and GS9 plus are here, the GS10 is coming in a few months.
    If you want the S-Pen, the Note 9 is just around the corner, well, you know what I mean.
    I'd also recommend the Pixel, but since you need double SIM than I guess something else.
    If you must get another phone, you need to choose one that has most of all those things you want on a phone, it'll be difficult to get everything you want from just one.
    Ask yourself; are pictures and video important, S-Pen, brand, etc, etc, etc...

    If all you want is to try a different phone than I guess you're a 'phoneaholic' like many of us here!
    Anyway, if you don't really care about pictures, get the OP6, although I don't know if it has double SIM.

    The LG Q7 looks like it has a lot to offer and with the various sales and promos going on I'd say you would get some good bang for the buck.

    I don't jump around anymore because Samsung just works for me with no sacrifices. Sometimes, what might look like a great deal on a phone for $400-500 actually isn't. The camera may be sub par, it may not be waterproof, the screen maybe 1080p or LCD. There almost always will be tradeoffs. Everyone has their priorities with what they need on a phone.
    If a phone works, why go looking for a replacement? I can see if you don't want to pay the high prices anymore. With the customization you can do now, what else does a different phone bring to the table?

    I actually agree with you.
    I've been changing phones once a year since the GS4, and didn't get the GS8, waited for the Note 8.
    Like you, I also use Samsung phones and I'm okay with that. Apparently the op is tired of Samsung.

    Wait for the Pixel 3 or Note 9. You'll kick yourself if you go with any of those devices you listed as it will seem more underwhelming than the N8.

    Why downgrade from the Note 8?

    As said even devices just round the corner will be full of comprises compared to the Note 9.

    Lots of good phones out there to try. None of them are in the same league as the Note though. I've had just about every brand and OS out there and they have all been good. Really have not had a bad experience with any of them, but none of them come close to the Note.

    Now if you don't actually use all of the things the Note can do, then that's a completely different story. Maybe you are not really the type of person the Note was intended for.

    I have a one plus 6. it's okay. I don't get the hype surrounding it or their crazed fans. it doesn't do anything unique or super well. it's just a phone. like those candybar nokias. it's solid for one it is. I liken it to the Camry of phones. it won't ever excite you but. you know. you still have things to do.
