    Hey everyone,

    I'm really interested in a Galaxy S8 or S8+, but I don't know what would be the best buy between that and the Note 8. From previous experience, have any of you owned any of the most recent Galaxy S phones and a Galaxy Note simultaneously and, if so, which would you personally choose?

    Cheers.

    In the past the biggest difference besides size has been the S Pen. For the people who use it, they seem to love it. For a lot of other people it's a very "meh" type of feature. So the big question is whether you can use that feature.

    I think it is a cool feature, but I'm not sure if I'd use it that frequently. Maybe if I got used to it I would really like it. Thanks!

    Same here, really like how S8+ looks, but wonder will I knock my head when Note 8 comes with the embedded fingerprints sensor and dual camera

    You also have to remember that it's very likely that Samsung will innovate on its Note line, especially after the Note 7 flop. If anything, they need to redeem the name of the Note line.

    I am going to have to wait a while for any of them since I am still paying off the Pixel xl and will try and sell it when I have paid off a bit more and since I can't rush out and buy anything, I am going to take a look at the Note 8 when out in comparison with the s8
    because I totally loved the Note 7 and I miss the pen and all but it may depend on just how astronomically high the price is.

    Typically, people who wanted a large screen phone gravitated towards the Note line. The s-pen was a nice bonus for most. But, I'm sure most people didn't use the s-pen daily. Now that the S series are getting bigger displays, it may cut into the sales of the Note8.

    I like the idea of the Note, but practically I don't see it functioning well for everyday use.

    I had (2) Note7s and in the time I had them-the original and the replacement- it was the best phone I ever had, and was perfect for everyday use. The pen is a great addition but the iris scanner was wonderful, since I am often taking care of grandkids and have damp or sticky hands. I don't know of course how the Note 8 will fare and I am certainly interested in the s8 but the Note line seems to me to be quite perfect for daily use. But you know, everyone to their own opinion and what works for one may not for another.

    I had a Note 5 and right now have the S8. I loved the Note but I generally prefer a phone of reasonable size. I had the Pixel XL until three weeks ago when I gave it to my wife and I got the S8.
    I'll wait to see how things are looking once we see the S8 and begin to see some substantive leaks about the Note 8.

    The screen size of the S8 series seems huge, but with the small bezels it might be ok.

    I had a note 4, never really saw the benefit of the pen even if it is improved now. I'll probably be goin for the S8 just to keep the size down on my phone as well.

    The Note 8 will have all the cool features of the S8/S8+ plus its own unique features + the S Pen. If I could only get one, I'd get the Note 8 over the S8s.

    Note 8 will always be better than S8 for the simple fact that it is released after the S8, and for the unique note features such as the S-Pen. That said, if you don't use/need an S-Pen and if you cannot wait for the Note 8 to be released, the S8 will be a sweet deal. My ONLY issue with the S8 is the amount of memory being rumored. I don't think 4GB is enough in today's world. Especially not if you plan to run windows in a continuum-like experience using your phone. Only time will tell if I am right or wrong!

    Break the bank and get both.. I will. I just will eat one meal a day. My original plan was to have both the GS7edge and the Note 7, but since I returned my Note 7 that never happened. So, I plan to get both. I have a feeling the Note 8 will have a bigger screen - like 6.5 or 6.7 inches since they are able to fit a bigger screen in a smaller space. Also, i have a feeling it will have dual cameras especially since they unveiled their dual camera processor a few weeks ago.

    Loved my N5, sold it to get the N7 which I never did so I settled on the S7E. Like the size for pocket-ability but really mis the pen.
