Folks at Samsung would be sighing with relief and busy celebrating. They are going to close out 2017 as their year. Remember people predicted Samsung to shut shop or at least kill the Note line up during the N7 fiasco? And here they are...breaking sales records while all their major competition are facing some or the other woes. LG and Pixel with display issues and Apples rumored delays. What a turn around!

Etaab,

Have you contacted them to find out what the delay is? I was waiting for my BT Headphones and one day I get a call from my old office that they have been delivered, lol. They never even called me to say they are delivering them.

Indeed. What a year it has been for them. I remember people saying that, that the Note line is over and Samsung is done heck there are people screaming that Samsung is in trouble seeing as LG and JDI are making OLED panels, and some other companies are getting into the Memory chip business etc etc... Fact of the matter is Samsung had done these things for so long that they have incredible expertise and QC standards that the others will take a few years to learn.

Just to give an idea of Samsung's strength in OLED displays: LGs entire OLED production is about the size of Samsung's reject pile of OLED displays. In other words LG make as many OLEDs as Samsung's bad units that fail QC. A whole lot of resources go into making these panels and to get it right a manufacturer needs to have the muscle to handle the complexity OLED production, which Samsung have.

Nope seems to affect Snapdragon 835 USA Note8s.

Haven’t had any issues so far

Congratulations and enjoy!

My number 1 rule with every smartphone is Turning Off Location unless you need it, or put Location in Power Save, as it really ruins battery. My iPad Air 2 just saw a huge battery life boost when I adjusted it's Location settings as it was getting seriously bad battery life for a device I barely use.

Other than that I have found the Note8 to give me plenty enough juice to get through a day of heavy usage, although I do too up when I get to around 45%, I usually keep my phone's between 45%-90% on a normal day.

Checkout: www.sammobile.com for all Samsung related stuff, and this particular section for Note8:
https://www.sammobile.com/devices/galaxy-note-8/

Bottom of that page has all Note8 tagged articles.

Speedtest, great. Let's not forget it's about how the phone serves your needs and how well it does it. Speedtests serve only that - testing of speed. To me it's useless, personally - never cared for them.

Demographics (location, age), social circle, lifestyle, and then price always comes into play - along with compatibility into your digital life style.

TSepz, curious do you use:
SmartWatch (would LOVE to see Sony create a stellar one to compete across all brands)
Bluetooth Stereo Headphones?
take your phone to the gym, on trips, what do you use it for fully? Not what you "can" but how do you use it (main points)?

Cheers.

I use my phone for a variety of things
- Social Media: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat - for myself and work, to manage client pages
- Music - Playing music via Bluetooth or Wired headphones (go between Samsung U Flex and Huawei BT headphones as well as the AKG wired headphones)
- Work email (exchange with 365 and Skype for Business)
- Watching lots of YouTube (Automotive Bloggers, tech Bloggers, and some others)
- WhatsApp
- Taking pics here and there of nights out and cars
- Managing my Google AdWords accounts when not in the office e.g. checking no campaigns are over or under spending their budgets
- Playing series and movies via Samsung DeX in the TV room
- Sometimes I use DeX and BT Keyboard to do work

The above link should be revisited I think once more apps are updated for iPhone x. Because hardware wise iPhone x is ahead of Note 8
