    That's fair.
    Cheers! I am envy you are getting S8 Plus though. It was not an easy decision for me to skip. Amazing device.

    Other than the s pen and bigger screen, the note really isn't better than the s series. I have owned both and currently have the note 5. I love the s pen but it is not a dealbreaker by any stretch. The screen on the s8+ is alot bigger than my note so that solves the other issue. May still get the note 8 but it will have to offer more than the s pen and I'm not real confident it will. Samsung is kind of going all in on the s series this time. Maybe due to lost revenue on the note 7 situation.

    I have owned every Note, except the first Note, and I'll be getting the S8+. Honestly, the Note 8 would probably need to have a 4K screen and another couple other features like a much better camera, in order to make me want to get it. I use VR, so 4K would be really nice to minimize the screen door effect.

    If all they do is essentially release an S8+ with a stylus, I'm gonna pass.

    Not I. I'll wait and see what it is and how it sells. If it sells like dead mice, the Note 9 will have the features back. Even if the Note 8 has a non-replaceable battery and no SD card, the S8 will be selling for less by then. Or maybe someone else will come out with a good phone, good features and a pen (or at least a slot in which to store one - I'll pay for a pen).

    I pre ordered the S8+ but Notes don't flop. Ever. I just wish I had a Note 7, still on my Note 4, just can't wait any longer. Again… Notes don't flop. Sorry.
    Notes don't flop, no they just explode. Note 7 was the biggest flop in phone history my friend.

    I've already ordered my S8 Plus. I am NOT holding out for the Note 8. Ridiculous how every time a new phone is released a lot of people are waiting for the next better thing.

    So like the title says... Whatcha gonna do then?
    There's nothing wrong with people holding out for the next better thing. It's their money and they get to spend their money any way they choose.

    I'll be holding out for the next better thing as well. I hope the Note 8 doesn't have a fingerprint sensor next to the camera.

    I've got it covered, S8 + now and the Note 8 when it's available.

    What's another G Note down the toilet?

    I have no idea what you are talking about. I am holding out for a Note 8 because I like Note features. I do use the SPen a lot. As long as the Note 8 has the same features of the S8+ with a SPen I will be fully satisfied. If it has more features then great, but I am not waiting for more features. I think you don't understand those of us who use the Note Series phones.

    People will always be unhappy. With that being said, I doubt the note 8 specs will "flop" I am sure it will be a slightly upgraded version of the s8/s8+ (maybe 6gb ram, larger battery, dual cameras). But like you said people will always complain.

    No one knows anything about the Note 8, and that picture looks like an S8. But, my guess is that the Note 8 will get the things they were trying to get into the S8 but ran out of time. I'm talking about dual cameras and the front embedded finger print scanner. Then there is the S Pen, of course. I'm hoping it is the height of the S8, but wider. Who knows. I could flip your question around though... How will you feel if the Note 8 comes out and it has everything the S8 originally hoped to have, and maybe more - plus the S Pen, but you jumped on the S8? I already know though. Some will flip their S8, some don't use a pen and won't care, some will wish they waited. Just make your own choice and don't worry about us...

    Well, if it's a flop then I'll get something else!! So what are you going to do if the S8 series is a flop? It can happen!!

    I feel exactly the same way. I was very sad when I had to turn in my Note 7...twice..... so even if they don't change anything on the Note 8 I'd be happy. If they gave me a chance to purchase a Note 7 over the S8+ I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    I'm currently experiencing this with my V20. If the S8 Plus is a flop then I'll..... I'm not sure.

    No flop concern here, especially since it most likely won't. Don't like the display ratio and corner curves of the S8+, so will use my Note 4 until later this year and see what pans out. Hopefully at least more portrait display width.

    My guess based on reasonable rumors so far, it could be the other way around: 6GB (handy for Dex, but about it), 128GB storage with mSD and at least stereo speakers.

    Apparently also a scalable 4K display for VR, but I would be happy if just got rid of pentile and stayed 1440p. If the S8 was RGB instead of pentile, I would be getting the S8+ for Gear VR. I also have and S7 I use mainly for Gear VR. Went with the S7 since best DPI to reduce screen door. The S7 is noticeably better than the Note 7 was with screen door. Still there though.

    apparently the note 8 will have a snapdragon 835 which the s8 has....only thing i see them changing is the fps and adding the s pen obviously. imo the note serious is overrated.

    835 is a good SOC, so no harm no foul

    For me, Ill sell my s8+ and buy the note8 only if it has a bigger battery. If it has a 4,000mah battery then I'll jump on that in a heartbeat.

    I know this is wishful thinking though.

    Flop usually means no demand and the very opposite was the case. Debacle fits more accurately.

    No; I don't want the S8. If I"m going Samsung in 2017 it's Note 8 or nothing. If the Note 8 sucks, then I just won't buy a Samsung device. Luckily there are other manufacturers making phones that are just as good or better this year

    The Note 7 was not a flop because it sold over 2.5 million devices globally within the first few weeks. That alone puts them in position to be a high ranking device sales wise. But, it was the worst device of 2016 at the same time because of the battery issue, poor quality control, etc. So I guess you could call it a flop, since instead of making $500 million or more in profit, they lost around $20 billion.
