    Lets say earlier this year they released refurbed Note 7s in North America would you buy one at a discounted price instead of the s8?
    I would, I was just at best buy playing with the S8 and someone was there and I was like is that a Note 7. He said yeah, I asked if I could see it. Man it is seriously perfect for me, I would get it in a heartbeat.

    I will say only wait one month, more than that and you will be waiting for the S9 and then again for the Note9

    There will be always a better version to come.

    So far the S8 looks pretty great, but waiting could lead to good reviews about the devices talking in deep about the good or bad of it.

    From history, don't let the leaks effect your decision. These leaks have been saying 4k display and 6 gigs of ram for years now.

    The note8 won't be too much different from the s8. The screen might be a tad bigger and it'll have an s pen and fingerprint reader in the screen. All Samsung flagships will have a fingerprint reader embedded into the display from here on out anyway.

    I'm going with the S8 for now - I've had my S7e for almost a yr now. I typically jump into phones twice a year - just because of my TMo plan. So my answer is both! If I had to choose I'd go with the S8 now because I have a hard time waiting.
    This is exactly how I am. I'm getting both just because of what I call the TECH DISEASE.

    I'm on the same boat, since carriers invented the upgrade programs is hard to resist to get the next big thing.

    Going with the S8, been using an old 5s since I sent my note 7 back in January. I really want a new phone. I really liked the note 7 but tbh I did not use the pen much.

    Get the S8, you KNOW you want to. Note 8, if there is one will probably be identical + s-pen.

    I'm still on the Note 4. I had hoped to upgrade to a Note 7, but we know how that went. So, I'm looking forward to getting a Note 8 this fall!

    Get the S8, enjoy it and then sell it for the Note 8. Win. Win. Win.

    I really hope those rumor specs aren't true with screen at 6.4" ������

    The S8 size is ok with me... the S8 plus even though width wise it feels good, just too tall. Note 7 was perfect size. If they go 6.4 which is bigger than S8+... i probably won't get it... if I wanted a tablet with a pen, I'd buy a tablet with a pen.
    Maybe they add the extra .2" into a 18:9 display and just make it the same height as the S8+, but just a wee bit wider. That would be perfect.

    I had a note 1, a note 3, a note 7 prior to it having to be returned so if it has the features it's suppose to then I really want to wait on the note 8. But honestly I was expecting an earlier release on the S8 so now I'm worried the note 8 will arrive late.

    No!! Read up on the specs of the note 8. If it has what it's expected to have it will not be like the S8.

    Yep, in a heartbeat.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna enjoy the S8+ for 6 months until the Note 8 but I would have much rather had the Note 7 this whole time instead of the V20. If I had the Note 7 right now, I wouldn't even be looking at the S8.
    I totally agree! IF I had the Note 7 still I wouldn't be buying the S8 Plus right now. Other than the processor there isn't much of an upgrade with the S8 over the Note 7.

    Definitely. This Note7 recall totally screwed up my upgrade cycle.

    As always, this year's Note will copy all the good stuff from the Galaxy S line, while offering a larger form factor with better specs and an S-pen. Here's what I would expect to see:
    • 6.6" Super-AMOLED infinity display with 4K resolution
    • Snapdragon 835 same as the S8's.
    • Dual rear-facing cameras and possibly some additional improvements to those cameras.
    • Probably the same 8MP selfie camera.
    • 6GB of RAM (compared to the S8's 4GB)
    • At least 128GB internal storage, and possibly 256GB (compared with S8's 64GB)
    • Improvements to S-Pen functions and features



    DJ Koh has outright stated that they're going to make this year's Note special. They kinda have to after last years debacle. So I think we can fully anticipate that they're holding back some awesome tech from the S8's so they can put it into the Note 8. Impossible to say what those features might be, but I think we can reasonably expect the Note 8 to be absolutely awesome. Personally, I'm going to wait for the Note 8.

    Sounds like a solid spec sheet if that's anywhere close to right.

    I still have the Note 1. The Note 3 I gave to my mom and she loves it. As for the 7, well we all know the story.

    well still have the s6 edge here, now i can upgrade samsung had to do big with the S8 to recover from the note 7, and again every 1 thinks they need to bring the note 8 better to recover again, the note 8 would of been better the the s8 regardless, but i do think they may of held back dual camera back may be for the note. Iv never had a note and because i have the option to wait now i think i will, i presume if the s pen is not for you you dont need to use it and i would of opted for S8 + size anyways.

    Naw wait for the Note 9. It'll be better than the 8. But then again you should wait for the Note or Galaxy 10...

    6.4" or 6.6" is too big, unless it's wider than the s8. Most of those specs above look good, since there's no newer processor than the 835. 6GB Ram needs to happen. I'm so ready for this phone!

    And then six months later the s9 will have what the note 8 has and then some, it's s vicious cycle many fall for
