I will never understand why Samsung feels the need to go head to head with Googles voice assistant. Don't fix it if it ain't broke. Bottom line Bixby is slow and no where near as accurate as Google. Currently using Google voice to voice type this. 😁
Which phone would you guys recommend me?
Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro, or Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition, or even Samsung Galaxy J7 Plus?
I didn't add the mid-ranger Samsung Galaxy A8 Plus because of that goddamn price, far too expensive for a mid-ranger. If the A8 is as pricey as the S8, then the A8 Plus would be even more pricey.
For music lover dun buy note fe... the sound quality sucks... non clarity sound output via aux and Bluetooth... note 5 has better sound quality... i had compare with Spotify with same song... regrating bought this phone... even J7 pro has good quality sound... Fan edition no no its fucked edition by Samsung
Adrian Joseph i think it depends on your headphone im currently using my MDR XB550 and it sounds great the stock earphones is shit that i agree
About the camera im gonna disagree with your comment that the note 5 is superior
In terms of camera because note fe is newer so it means the camera sensor is newer also and the aperture is improved in lowlight use but hey why bother it all comes down in our own preferences no need to fight about phones just enjoy our own handsets
Deus Dei Superbia talking abt the headphone jack sound... for normal linstening u wont feel the different but the sound quality is not good as my previous note 5 or j7pro... im still considering to swap to note 5 or other phone... plus the camera is far better at note 5...
After that indecent of the note 7.
I think note phones should have less price to bring back the old customers and more potential customers.
Just to think of it
Note 8 and FE are expensive + trauma about what happened on note 7.
But the FE's price is ok with me, but not convincing. Especially you're a student on a budget.
I am note5 user
And I got the not8 now
The phone is amazing but i realy miss the fingerprint sensor in the front and it feels too tall against my face & hand
I hope the next note to be a little bit shorter, the fingerprint sensor under the display, active dual SIM + micro sd card, longer battery life, dual stereo speakers and change the position of the s-pen to be pulled up instead of pulled down.
I just got the note 8 and i hate it.... i still have my note 7 too and the note 7 full brightness is brighter and more colorful than the note 8 on hdr 720p/1080p/1440p videos when playing the same video... note 7 wins each time!!
Unfortunately the note FE didnt got much coverage by some tech reviewers on youtube ...n it is extremely difficult to get to know about its availability in your country ....no website has clear information regarding when n where n which next countries the samsung Note FE will be available.... this is bad ... note 8 is a bit big which is also beautiful but i am lil bit in doubt about the look it gives from the back side 👀 fingerprint scanner is always comfortable on front ..hope they would fix this in next coming note aur Next S series
Note FE won't be getting Bixby Vision or Voice, which I actually want (see Sakitech's channel to see a PROPER review amd demonstration of what Bixby can do and HOW to use it WITH Google Assistant not INATEAD of it, that's not what Bixby was designed for fyi), and I'm interested in the dual cameras and the larger screen size... Even though I was waiting for the FE, the lack of international release (or even news of such), coupled with the limited Bixby features made it a no-go for me. I don't care about the fingerprint scanner placement because it's perfectly reachable, y'all just drama queens. And it looks wrong without the Samsung logo on the front and I'm probably the only person to say so..
Just held the Note 8 in-store and I don't have the biggest hands btw. Maybe it's because I've had Note phones since the Note 2 (and can thus handle the size more intuitively without fuss) but let me just say... y'all exaggerating over the fingerprint scanner placement! It's perfectly reachable :D I was getting to it without "mistaking" it for the camera as everyone seems to complain about smh. You YouTubers need to work on your coordination man.....So much drama over nothing... No wonder Samsung won't move it (apart from the fact there's no gaddamn space to do so).
PS Several comparisons now show the Note8 battery lasting as long ,if not longer, than the S8 Plus. So there :D
I like much more the Note 7. To me was the perfect telephone. The Note 8 size is way too big and it does not look as nice as the bezel of the note 7. The fingerprint recognition on the back is a screw up in my opinion
Note 7 looks better design wise the note 8 looks horrid, keep it one colour from front to back, and can the make the camera smaller, if Apple can do it so can samsung, this is sad becuase I still have my note 7, it's my daily driver and I was hoping to get a note 8 that could replace it, I guess I'll be forced to use it and hope for better out if the note 9. Please bring back 16x9 aspect ratio, corral blue with Rose gold on sides, and keep the front colour the same as back. Go back to note 7 design with infinity display, and take out Bixby button
Mustafa Mamuwala maybe note fe last samsung note device that have front fingerprint at the front in the bezel. Next samsung phone may have fingerprint scanner in display. So front fingerprint scanner may come back to note device
They could have done way more :D I actually think, after they realized that they have a massive Note Fan groupe all over the world after the Note7 disaster... it looks like this is one of many reasons for the heavy pricing, what do you think?
I'm fine with my blue S7 edge 64GB and consider a Note FE in 2018 and no Note8 or Note9 due to its size...
Let's be real here.
Note 8 wins the design award but FE just won the "which deal sounds better" contest. The 8th generation beauty costs one thousand dollars. Yuck. IDK FE's price but it Note FE has:
+No Bixby button. Sorry Samsung, Google just saw your cheeky move and blocked it with G Assistant. And that assistant beats even the Siri herself. People just won't give a chance to your newborn software. (But if it keeps improving, this one may become a con in the future, who knows)
+Fingerprint scanner on front. If you can't place it under the display, just place it there.
+IR Blaster. Most underrated feature on smartphones imo.
+Way better price tag. Dude, why the hell would you charge $1000 for a smartphone? Many people would go invest it in some better stuff.
I *know* Note 8 is more beautiful, it has more specs, bells and whistles but if I would buy a Samsung phone today, it would be a Note FE. It seems like a generation behind considering the design, but it's the device all of us were dying for last year. It's still a good deal.
Great phone and has many things I like... And may buy it
but nevertheless it has some disappointments
Small battery + no stereo speakers + the location of the fingerprint scanner + Bixby
Please Samsung improve you game
They chose such ugly colors for the Note 8. The blue isn't deep enough and the black camera doesn't match well with the orchid gray and gold. The black is the only color that makes everything look good.
No hate but fe has an amazing front facing fingerprint scanner! Note series was made for productivity! Not to have tweaks and infinity displays low battery and customization for teen guys! It's made for professional people! If u can notice the Fe it has a really wide screen!! 3200 mAh can stand a lot as its doesn't have high heavy battery draining specs and other things! If you are a real proffesional u can get the note fe
I feel Samsung upgrade was nice 4gigs to 6 gigs of Ram. Better build Quality more pixels dule lens camera ,one terabyte SD card support sounds like a good upgrade to me not to mention fast wireless charging, and fast charging
