    The N8 is the first time in a while I'm going to keep it until the N9. I usually upgrade between the S and Note series, but every time I do I miss the Note more then the S series. So this time I will be using both cause I'm just a tech junkie. Anyone else keeping both or just upgrading to the S9+?

    While I have no doubt that the S9/S9+ will be awesome, I'll wait for the Note 9. The Note 8 will get a refresh with Oreo. Even if it didn't, the Note 8 does everything I need it to and more. Then we will see how much of a leap the Note 9 is from the Note 8.

    Seeing this earlier today has really put the cat amongst the pigeons for me personally. F1.5 Aperture camera that's also variable to 2.4, stereo speakers, super slow mo camera, and the S9+ will have dual camera's too of course. Those are are big features for me that might be hard to stop me trading in my Note 8 for. (my wife won't let me keep both lol. When I change phones the last one has to part fund the new one. That's her only criteria)

    Yes that camera and stereo speakers is something I'm looking forward to. I'm in the same boat with my wife lol I'll just have to buy her something equally expensive so she can't say anything 🤣

    I am really looking forward to those features too. I just don't want to be jumping to the S9+ and then jumping to the Note 9 six months later. I am trying very hard to minimize my phone jumping. I have not missed a Note since the Note 2 so I know I will get the Note 9. The Note 8 is the best phone I have every had so no reason to jump so quickly. That's me though. I can totally understand someone wanting to jump every 6 months. I have done that for years.

    Those specs look nice my only knock on it is in an age of $1,000 phones that the US duopoly in Apple and Samsung is pushing for, all $1,000 flagships should come with a minimum 128 GB of on board storage.

    S9+ features definitly look nice but that just means the N9 will be even better. Of course I'll be getting the S9+ tho.

    I want a smaller device than my Note 8 so I'm looking at the S9. I wish it was going to have 6GB RAM though.

    Since I could not afford to have two, I will rather choose the N series. I do really love the S-Pen!

    I NEVER use the cameras or listen to anything on my Note 8. So the Note 8 is definitely for me!

    Too much hasle for not to much benefit jumping phones every 6 months. And having to live with no Spen for 6 months? No way.

    I'll wait for Note 9 and keep my dollars warming up my pockets untill then.

    If you think you are "upgrading" to S9 from Note 8, you are definitely a phone addict and in need of some serious help

    Have some self-control folks, Jesus

    Yeah you're right. I'm a self confessed phone addict and usually go with the S line of phones with the occasional Note. Every year I get 6 months of pleasure before the Note is released with the same features plus the latest and greatest ones and I wish I'd waited for that. The Note series will always have the most features so I just need to remember that come February and exercise a little patience.

    Exactly.

    Made the mistake of going from the great Note 4 to the Galaxy S7 Edge when the Note7 went up in flames.

    NEVER again will I go back to S series, the S7 Edge was a good phone don't get me wrong, but it wasn't a Note.

    Great to be back in the Note line with the Note8, and I will be doing the same thing to, getting a Note9 at launch and having Note8 as back up, and next year Note10 etc etc...

    I cannot justify leaving a Note for a S series, not ever.

    Same here. I tried the s6 edge plus when I left note 3. Good phone but like you said not a note lol. So at the time the note 5 was available so I got that. When the 2 recalls of the note7 happened I went back between my note 5, v20 and iPhone 7 plus which Verizon got back when my 2nd note8 came out lol. The deep sea blue one. I just can't stay away from Samsung and the note series lmao. I was a Motorola chic til I tried the note 3 and well I'm not going anywhere until they stop doing the note line. And if that happens I will run the last note that came out til it won't turn on anymore lmao.

    Zero interest, I keep phones for at least two years. The differences are so small that it is not worth the effort to move to another phone.
