    I'm really liking the Galaxy S8, but I feel like the Note 8 will be announced anytime soon too. Would some of yall wait for the Note 8 or are you just getting the S8?

    Decisions decisions...

    Wait. Definitely wait. It's 5-6 months down the road, but worth seeing what happens.

    All of these "get x phone or wait for y phone" posts. The response should always be: Do you need a phone right now? If yes, then buy a phone now, if no, then wait. The S8 isn't going to magically get worse when the Note 8 comes out. There will always be something better on the horizon. Yes, the note 8 will be better than the s8. Also the S9 will be better than the s8. Buy a phone when you need a phone.

    True and not true

    I have the S7 Edge and I want to upgrade, but if the Note 8 will for example have a better battery life then the S8 (which seems to be like its the same as the S7), I'd wait...in other words, I want to upgrade to the better phone between the Note 8 and S8....don't care about the S9 right now.

    Guess I'll just wait for reviews

    I really hoped the S8 will have some amazing camera tech, which will also go into the Note 8. I wish samsung did a dual lens setup. Also interested to see what nokia will do in that space.

    I just need a phone to hold me over until the Note 8. The V20 isn't that for me, so that's why I'm making the jump to the S8.

    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.

    There's no way it will be announced anytime soon. Why would they dilute the S8's impact? I'm waiting for the Note, myself, unless I get impulsive and order the S8+!

    I'm telling you right now lol. How long every year have these leaked contained "4K display, 6 gigs of ram". The note8 will be the same as the s8 except for MAYBE a little bigger display and the s pen. If you want to fall for those leaks, then that's on you but they've been saying that every year.

    Same question I asked last year, and I'll echo the responses on that thread.

    If you need a phone now, get the S8. If the last 2 years are any indication, the Note 8 won't be too different from the S8, with identical hardware to the S8+ but some software differences and an S Pen.

    Normally, I'd totally agree with you. BUT, after the horrific and unprecedented Note 7 debacle, I'm confident that Samsung will go all out on the Note 8 to make up for it. Samsung has to really up the wow factor to convince people to get another Note device.

    So I'd be waiting for that rather than buy the S8.

    Imo, I just feel if someone has the S7 Edge, it's not a huge leap forward and I'd wait for the S9 or Note 8

    I will probably get the Note 8 itch. However, since the prices jumped on the S8, I would expect the Note 8 to be around 900 or maybe a little more. No way I'm splurging again lol.

    Another suggestion if you want the Spen bad but already got the S8, S8 Plus is to wait until later this summer or fall when the Tab S3 goes down in price and buy that! it contains the Spen. A lot cheaper than buying the Note after just getting the S8.

    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.

    I'm thinking the Note 8 will be the same size as the S8 plus, with a duel camera, embedded FPS and a more advanced Bixby. I can't wait till the rumors start.

    Hopefully.

    I miss my Note 7 still. It had a very good chance of being the best Samsung phone I've ever used.

    Note sure. But I LOVED my Note 7. I am probably leaning towards waiting on the Note 8.

    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?

    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.
