    Hehehe, you fell for his sale trap. I saw the phones yesterday. I had to drag myself out of the store screaming and kicking lol. I wanted one badly but I must wait for Note 8. Say it with me, MUST WAIT FOR NOTE 8.
    Must wait for the note 9 now. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    First of all don't believe anything reps tell you about whether a phone will or will not be available lol they don't know what they're talking about they just seem to enjoy spreading rumors
    I did ask him if he was just telling me that to get me to order this phone. I should have just went and sat in the car while my sister ordered hers.

    I'm sure they work on some sort of commission or incentive to sell the devices and/or get new lines activated ;-)

    I know. I can't really blame him because I wanted the phone anyway and I probably would have still gotten it even if he hadn't lied. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I kept saying I was waiting for the note 8 and I made the mistake of telling the Samsung rep that. He tells me that as of right now there will be no note 8. That pushed me to go with the 8 plus. Now I'm seeing on the forum that supposedly Samsung confirmed the note 8.
    Samsung has confirmed on their Facebook there will be a Note 8, but has given no other details in response to comments.

    I was opposite with impression. Fully expected to be blown away, but did not like the stretched display. The 8+ is actually a thinner display than the Note 4. I find that due to both the thinner width and curve, games and web content are presented better on the Note 4 than 8+. Not only is the display curved on the edges, it is curved on the corners. The G6 is stretched, but no corner curves.

    Factor in the display is still Pentile, I will stick with my Note 4 as a phone and the S7 for Gear VR.

    Yep, both devices will sell great, but for now will stick with the Note 4. Makes me miss the Note 7 even more now.

    The actual display width is thinner than the other Notes. Seems less usable overall, but JMO.

    Maybe the Note 8 finally ditches Pentile. Then again, if you don't use Gear VR, no harm no foul if Pentile.

    Exactly! Infact, we have more knowledge anyway. Never have I asked any questions when going to Best Buy. Just price lol.

    Just got my hands on the 8+ at the Best Buy in town, and I gotta say I was less than thrilled. It's a great looking device for sure, but coming from a Nexus 6 now, the tall screen just didn't do it for me. It's no wider than the GS7 Edge, so the larger 6.2" dimension really didn't make it look any more immersive to me. Side by side with my N6 the screen was plenty taller, but still looked smaller overall since it's much more narrow.

    I held an S8 and an S8+ in my hands today at BestBuy... I'm very happy that I pre-ordered the S8+. It felt so good.

    And of course their Samsung reps where all over me... I did forget to look at the screen settings they had for the demo's, but I'm absolutely positive they cranked up the resolution over what comes out of the box... it was very, very sweet.

    I did check a number of things out and explained to the sales rep about a few things she had not heard about... including being able to switch the order of the buttons at the bottom of the screen.


    They were set to 1440p on the display models. I changed the one I was using down to 1080 just to see how it would look and honestly could not tell a difference. Even at the lowest dpi setting and second to lowest sized text setting. I'm used to 1080p phones after rocking a Xiaomi Mi Mix, Mate 9, P9 and some other Chinese phones at 1080p though.

    I'd also like to say that the fingerprint sensor location wasn't bad for me. I do hold the phone in my left hand 90% of the time and it was easily reachable. Having a case on will actually help pinpoint the location of it without looking as well.

    Yeah I get what you're saying. I have the Nexus 6 as well and felt the same way....Even though that screen is indeed Beautiful. I think the Note 8 will be wider.

    go here and look and compare s7edge and note 7 sizes. Samsung Galaxy S8+ - Full phone specifications

    if i wanted a note 7 again i would have had note 5 and wait. regardless. s8 plus is still beyond worth it
