    Well, I just canceled my order. I've decided to wait on the Note 8 as it is not that far off and as disappointed as I was to give up the Note 7 I can't order the S8+ and expect to be happy until I see the Note 8. I have to admit that if the S8 had been the same size as the Note 7 I just may had been satisfied but the S8+ even though it says it is a 6.2 it is the same width as the Edge and too tall. It reminds me of one of a previous IPhones. It's just too darn skinny so I am going to bite the bullet and hold out and see what Samsung brings to the table in the 4th quarter.

    Personally I think that is a good decision and I'm doing that myself, hopefully Samsung is prepared for a massive order on the N8 all forums I read have the same consensus that's the phone everyone really wants!

    The S8+ is not the same width as the S7 Edge and it is not much taller than the Note 7.

    The Note 7 was 73.9mm wide.
    The S7 Edge is 72.6mm wide.
    The S8+ is 73.4mm wide.

    So the S8+ is .5mm thinner than the Note 7 and .8mm wider than the S7 Edge.

    Personally I'll be getting both.

    Same. I'll probably pay half down on s8+ or flip it and get the note 8 as long as there's some dramatic differences. If not, the s8+ is fine. The big draw to the Note series (besides the SPen of course) used to be the larger screens, now there's not really a huge difference IMO.

    If it saves you money that will be used towards the phone you really want, then why not. Good choice. I will also be getting the Note 8 when it comes out. I just got to have the S-pen.

    Rumours say note may be released as late as november to early 2018. But if you can wait go for it. The Note 7 was my first note before that all galaxy phones. I loved the n7 but never used the spen. So unless the change from s8 to n8 is like SUPER dramatic i might just stick with the S-line. All i wanted was bigger screens to view content now its here. I guess we shall all see

    That's how I am. What I used the S pen for on the note 7, I can do the same on the S8 plus with my finger now. The note 8 will probably have a bigger screen, they usually do, and I don't want that either. I am guessing the note 8 will have the same type of screen, more narrow and taller, so waiting for the n8 because of the S series screen being narrow and taller isn't going to be much more happy with the n8 screen IMO.

    If the n8 is released and its some super phone I'll just order it and sell my S7 edge or S8+ depending on which one I want to keep as my back up.

    Disclaimer.. This is my opionion, I do not work for Samsung with inside info. LOL

    Perhaps the Note 8 will have the FPS embedded in the display...

    That won't be enough to get me to switch. I really can't think of anything that would, so will have to see if Samsung has something hiding up their sleeves.

    You should definitely get the phone or hold out until the one you want arrives. It's not chump change we're talking about, that's for sure. However, just know that within less than 2 months after the Note8 arrives, they will be talking about the S9. Samsung is smart with these cycles to always keep buzz going on.

    How much bigger could they really make the screen? My worry is the Note 8 will be the same size as the S8+ but with a smaller battery because they need room inside to fit the S Pen. The battery already seems undersized for such a large device so to make it even smaller would be pretty bad.

    Again I'm just guessing here. Hopefully they prove me wrong because I loved the Note 7 and it was hard to give it up.

    The rumor I have seen is 6.4 inch screen.

    I have learned to do without the S pen. The note 7 fiasco might have converted me to the S-series. The note 8 will have to offer more then a bigger screen which I don't want, finger print under the screen, S pen. Will see when Samsung releases it.

    Funny thing, I may have used the s pen once on each note (4,5,7)I've had . The biggest draw for me was a bigger screen. If they would have just made a regular 8 and 8 edge I probably would wait for note 8, but that big screen and 8 plus being really close to the note 7 pulled me in. I am wrestling with the idea of canceling my order, but I just don't want to wait. By the time the note 8 comes out I'll have almost paid off my 7 edge and I'll just do another next upgrade Lol. I have a phone buying problem lol

    Whatever the note 8 has exculding the spen will just be added to the s9. So i think I'm sticking with the s series.

    A person should always purchase a phone that fits their needs, has the features they want, and is within the amount they're willing to spend.

    This is how the S8 was supposed to be but Synaptics failed to meet Samsung's demand before production began. I don't know if they have enough time for the the Note 8 but I hope so. IMO they should take time to put out a quality product instead of rushing and putting out something that doesn't work well.

    Confession:
    I would love to get the Note 8, too, but I am such a bleeping device junkie that I am chomping at the bit for my new S8+. In other words, I'm one sick woman. However, I am putting down a down payment of half of the one year due for my once a year AT&T every year NEXT plan, so I probably will be able to trade up to the new Note when it comes out. And I will want to, because I am obsessed.

    Hard to say how close they were but we also don't know when they decided to pull the trigger. Have to imagine it was several weeks ago and I'm sure they have been working non-stop since then and have several more months to get things right. I think they will get it done.

    Get what you like and be happy. Canceling my 8+ due to not liking the narrow display and curved corners. Went and tried at BB on four trips (one today) and totaled about 90 minutes with it. The more I use it, the less I like the display ratio and curves. Especially the curved corners.

    Though everything else IMO is good, the display is the main factor for me. Note 4 will do until the Note 8. Hoping it at least gets rid of the curved corners and adds some portrait width.

    This is the one thing I am worried about to I wonder if Samsung over did it with the narrowing of the device especially with content in landscape mode

    Of course I can't see for myself because yet to find any demos in my area
