The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an awesome phone but I think most people would be better off spending their cash an a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. If you've got the cash for the Note 8 you'll be happy with it but your dollar goes a lot further if you spend it on a Galaxy S8 or S8+.

He has a good point. 900usd for that is far far too much. Especially since its not much different from the S8+. Hearing he say it makes me feel like the Note 8 is one of those things which exist for people to throw money at because they have it (like fine art or gold plated toilet seats). Better off buying the S8 or 5T (heck the Note FE is a better value) if you need a decent phone that just works.
I have the note 8 and it's the best phone I've ever had and I love the s pen. I actually use it a lot more than I thought I would. By the way, before I got my note I had been using iPhone for years and my note is so much better
In my opinion, your arguments are not that strong. The nice things you said were more effective than your negative stuff. The Note 8 is almost a mini tablet and it can be great for business, sketches on the go, reading, watching movies or series, etc.
I made the jump from the Note 4 to the Note 8 and let me tell you, the Note 8 is not worth the price tag. May just be me, but I really can't tell any difference in the display quality from the Note 4. The Note 8 external speaker is a huge improvement over the Note 4, but how often do you really use it. On the other hand, with the same bluetooth earbuds, I got a far better music listening experience with the Note 4 versus the Note 8. Maybe I'm missing something in the Spotify settings or something, but music quality on my Note 4 was much better than on my Note 8. The Note 8 is heavy, almost too heavy. I know that is due to the glass back versus Note 4 plastic removable back (of course the removable back and battery swapping is one reason I waited until my Note 4 died, before upgrading). Personally, I have always thought the glass back on phones was a stupid idea and it doesn't scream quality to me, like other people seem to think. It looks nice (until it's covered in fingerprints), but it in fact, lessens the quality to me. For those that don't know, plastic holds up to more abuse than glass, just saying. Not to mention, the glass back is slippery and I'm not one to really like putting a case on that hides the device. Now, here's the big one. The S-Note on the Note 4, does more than the Samsung-Note on the Note 8. I was like WTF and was glad S-Note was still available on the PlayStore. And that ugly stacked clock, WTF was Samsung thinking, and what do you mean I have to have a persistent notification up to force the stacked clock into a normal digital clock on the lock screen. Seriously!!! In short, I'm very saddened that my Note 4 died and I really miss it. The Note 4 was so awesome in my opinion, that I expected to be totally wowed by the Note 8, but only ended up disappointing and left wishing I still had my Note 4. Oh and did I mention, the LED notification light sucks. I mean, I could get orange and purple on my Note 4, with Note 8, orange is a yellowish pink and purple is a purplish pink. How did Samsung f*ck up the notification light from the Note 4?
I was actually surprised how well the battery life is. Honestly though, that can vary from user to user. I run Nova Launcher with a black background which increases battery life and is easier on the eyes in my opinion. I'm also using Substratum with Swift Minimal to get dark themes for Settings, Messaging, Phone, Contacts, and Google Apps, including Playstore and YouTube. With AMOLED displays, everywhere that is black, those pixels are shut off, so that conserves battery, so it's very likely I would get better battery life than you might experience. For example, a lot of people complained about the battery life on the S 3 and Note 4 and I felt like I had no issues at all with battery life on those devices.
A friend of mine offered to buy me the note 8 and I wanted to watch a few reviews before deciding. And to be honest, I want it more than ever now , because I really want to get into digital drawing (I have only ever drawn traditionally). I'm so excited to get it in a few months 😊
Arguing not to buy a phone because of its price point is the dumbest argument and also a waste of time. Seems like you are running out of ideas on what to film for your channel to generate that YouTube money. Instead of wasting people’s time making these dumb videos, why not educate people to spend their money more wisely by finding out the latest deals on these phones? Many carriers offer bogo deals and or discounts for limited time. Source these deals per carrier and make videos on that?
Like telling someone to "hey don't buy Starbucks coffee, u can use that same amount of money alone to buy a normal coffee plus food ++" but i guess its up to everyone's satisfaction, sometimes it does feel good to reward urself expensive thing once in awhile
I have been a fan of the Note series ever since the Note edge (Note 4 edge) to me the s pen makes a world of difference... its turns you phone into a note pad as well as all the other tweaks and features. All the other improvements such as better camera, bigger Ram and are also nice...After the note 7 affair I had to buy the S7 edge and waited anxiously for the Note 8 to come out...So, yes I remain a note addict.
You should totally change the subject. I am a heavy pen user (on note since the first) and it is way more than just " becoming an artist" thing. The only valid setback posted by you is the battery, but you can't imply "don't buy the more expensive phone because it is better than the others". Its total nonsense, right?
I GOT MY GALAXY NOTE 8 IN NOVEMBER I WANT IT THIS GALAXY NOTE 8 SOO BAD THAT I NEEDED TO BUY IT SOO I GOT MINE IN VERSION WIRELESS THAT MY MOM BOUGHT IT FOR ME FOR CHRISTMAS AND I LIKE THE COLOR THAT I HAVE MINE IS PURPLE PLUM AND I BOUGHT A CASE FOR MY GALAXY NOTE 8 IT'S PINK WITH SILVER GLITTER IT'S REALLY CUTE..
The dual lenses with optical zoom and image stabilization is why I got this phone, but it's all hype. I bought the Note8 and am totally disappointed with the video quality. My Note5 was actually better. The Note8's autofocus is horribly slow to react and inaccurate. The ONLY thing better about the Note8 is the 60 fps at 1920 x 1080. So it's smooth. Big deal when everything is out of focus. Like anything else in life, no one cares what something says it can do compared to what it actually does.
