    That dual camera with everything else there makes it look ugly IMO.
    But if you have a case on it, defeats the purpose of having a beautiful phone... More than 75% of people will have a case on it, probably an ugly OtterBox to be exact, either that or a thick case with a belt attachment.

    I just don't see the point of the note anymore. Put the S pen on the S series plus model, heck put the dual camera on the plus model too. There ya go. Regular size S for S users, s plus for the Note people. The only purpose the Note serves anymore is to devalue their own flagship that they release not even 6 months prior. It's actually kind of dumb if you ask me but who am I...
    The Note series usually offered more RAM, at least 1GB more. The Note 3 & 4 had 3GB of RAM, which is still impressive, while the S4 & S5 only had 2. The Note usually has a bigger screen as well, and the S Pen is useful for some, but not everyone. Everyone who loved their Note 3 & 4 is patiently waiting on the next iteration.

    The point of the Note is the same as it's always been. Better specs and the S-pen.

    I would love to get it eventually if they have good sales on it like they do right now on the unlocked model or tmobile version from samsung.com

    However, the possible price tag of at least a grand and it's no go for me. I'll get the Spen via tab s3 and wait for S9 Plus then. I spend too much on tech stuff and have to draw the line somewhere. Maybe in Dec if the price drops to $850 I'll bite and trade in the S7 Edge and Tab s2 I got towards it then at Best buy for the unlocked one.

    I'll be snagging the Note 8 when it releases. Jump On Demand with T-Mobile keeps my device current!

    Yes, but the better specs rumored for the note 8 isn't ground breaking. Dual camera most don't need but since iPhone does it, now others have to have it. I don't think 2 GB of RAM is going to be a game changer. And more memory, 64 GB is good for majority people, hell 32 is good enough for most thanks to external memory. The S pen is basically the main purpose of the note 8. I agree with you, previous notes was better specs, not as much with the note 8 with the rumored leaks.

    I love my 8+ but man i wish they implemented the duo camera that's the only thing i regret getting the S8+. I can handle the no fps in the front but if they can manage to pull a good duo camera with portrait mode i'll be upset lol.

    Yeah, unfortunately we've reached a point where phones just aren't groundbreaking anymore, and that would include the Note.

    I am a Note fan and really miss the S Pen, I will probably upgrade my wife's phone to the Note 8 and swap it with my S8 plus.
    Great idea. Except, in my wife's case, she ain't going to give up her iPhone.

    Except it looks like the Note 8 will probably be the S8+ w/a stylus and fancier camera. Hardly a deal breaker. I personally don't need extra ram and, anyway, Apple has proven its less the ram than integrated OS and software.

    Would gladly have paid $150 for the S pen on the S8.

    I expect Note 8 will include Bixby button and sabotage apps to reprogram. Just another beta "improvement".

    I will look into getting the Note 8 only because I love technology. Though I really do love my S8+.

    It will be hard for me not to get one if its better then the leaked rumors, but I'm definately not getting one on launch. If I break down and get one it will be during an awesome Xmas sale or something. I'm going to try and change my way of getting phones, instead of launch, wait a couple months if that for great sales. I'll miss the excitement of new release, but pocketbook won't hurt as bad, and with the savings I could probably buy both S and note versions for the pricing of one on launch day.

    I've spent over $2,500 on tech in the last 30 days. I guess I could put my wife on rations but short of that I can't justify moving "up" from the S8+ to the Note 8.

    I would think that Samsung knows that most people with an S8+ won't be interested in the Note 8. So why not design the phone in a similar fashion and add the S-Pen? Only phone jumpers would know the difference.

    Same here. Since buying the S7 last March I'm on my 5th since then. S7, Note 7, S7 Edge, V20, Tab s2 and now the S8 Plus. I've spent a lot of cash on these phones and the cases to go along with them which is in the hundreds of dollars too.

    I GOT the money but I can't keep spending it on phones. I will wait to see what the true price is and hope after a couple months they do sales on the Note 8 either unlocked on the Tmobile one. I paid for for the s8 plus on pre order and could have saved a lot waiting but I was sick of the s7 edge and hated the v20.

    If the Note 7 was around still I wouldn't have had this problem as I would have been using that and have not bought the V20 or s8 Plus. I would simply wait for the Note 8.
