    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?
    Why the regret? You have your money and can buy any phone you like.

    I don't see how anyone would "regret" waiting to find out what the specs are for the Note 8. After we find out more details and see leaks of a production unit, then people could decide to wait for release or buy something else. It's not like the S8+ won't be available anymore.

    If anything, not buying a S8 or S8+ at launch in the US would provide those who waited with more options. There's no doubt that more colors of the S8 and S8+ are coming. I could see Samsung bringing 2 more color variants to the US in late summer to keep the S8 fresh going into the fall.

    If you find the Note 8 isn't for you, you just might have a better selection of colors and perhaps some other bonuses if you wait.

    On the flipside, those who purchased their S8 or S8+ on launch, might see a color they prefer 2 or 3 months later and have some regret.

    Why anyone would have regrets over a color makes no sense to me. The color does not change the phone plus there are cases in any color you like.

    Like the multitude of devices with large 16:9 devices with onscreen buttons? Because there are tons of them
    They also don't have tiny top and bottom bezels. Look at the Pixel. Big top and bottom bezels. The LG has small bezels, but has a 18:9 display ratio.

    Regret sets in around the time a new phone specs are leaked and people feel they should have purchased the "other" item. In this case the S8. Sure the S8 will still be available. Would you want to purchase a 6 month old device though when there are likely newer "better" things on the horizon?

    That's why it was so difficult to go to the V20(one of my least favorite phones in quite a few years) from the Pixel XL. I only did it because I got the V20 for 360$. It's only a 200$ phone to me. The Pixel was good in almost every aspect for me.

    Of course it doesn't change the phone, and maybe regret is too strong of a word. But remember when the blue coral S7 Edge came out after the Note 7 recall? People were literally selling their used Edge devices and buying the blue one.

    IJS...people like color options and not all of those options will be available in the US at launch.

    I haven't seen anything that indicates not having bezels will be a good thing. Still not sure where you're supposed to hold it when viewing content.

    I'm curious. Did you sell your Pixel? Did you purchase the V20 with the impression that it would be on par with the Pixel XL? I can't comment on their similarities/differences because I own neither. You have a valid reason why someone would regret changing devices.

    I quickly realized that chasing the latest and greatest devices is too expensive for me. I purchased a S7 Edge late last year for $460 knowing that the S8 was coming in Feb/March. However, I do enjoy talking about new devices and am excited in general for the next best thing.

    I believe that it is not possible for the Note 8 specs to be a flop in anyway, unless it is foldable.
    I agree, I'm not feeling the whole folding thing...at least not the renders that have been popping up.

    How's this for regret? Samsung may bring its 128GB storage, 6GB RAM S8 to North America.

    If they do, they wont officially announce this till preorders have been fulfilled and past the return period. Let the rumors stew for a month or two.

    What better way to distinguish this from the rest than to release it in a coral blue or some other exclusive color.

    The only thing that would make me regret not waiting for the N8 is if they implement the under-screen FPS on the front. But I do not believe that will be the case unless they delay launch until early 2018 (I work in finance so I have analysis for why I believe that no phone company - Samsung or Apple - will implement under screen FPS in 2017).

    Since 2018 is the new product cycle, I have little interest in waiting that long.

    But I could easily be wrong.

    They already wanted $130 to upgrade to the S8+ over the S8. This would be sure to increase the price to a minimum of $950. No thanks.
    This should almost guarantee that the Note8 will have 6gb of RAM as well.

    You will have to get a pair of the new jeans coming out soon. Samsung is coming out with a clothing line that is going to consist of jeans with extra long pockets;-) 👖They are going to be called the Infinity Jeans. You can special order them with fast 2 day delivery via the Bixby button!

    So, the front facing camera is on the bottom? That's a little awkward.

    Exactly. The "narrow" phones are hear to stay due to the onscreen navigation buttons. People want the best of both worlds - no home button and no weird display ratio. I'm hoping there's a way to just extend out the display of the Note8 by only increasing the width.
    Seems no doubt the Note 8 will have the stretch, but will be as wide in portrait mode as the Note 7. Rationale in articles for this are the pen and apparent stereo speakers on top and bottom.

    In order to maintain the 18:9 ratio, you cannot stretch one way without stretching the other way. I think they will maintain the ratio and I do think the Note8 will be wider by at least how the Note7 was - so therefore I think the Note8 will be taller as well - unless they completely eliminate the bezels.
