I had previously quitted Samsung after using Note 4. Cuz they never supported the cluttery UI eventhough the device was capable. Then moved to iphone and had good 1.5 years. Recently thought about a new phone, when I saw the Note 8 in a shop, I couldnt refuse buying it. Its looks. The display. The camera. They're just stunning. And yayy I have a headphone jack.
1. still no latest android. Hope Samsung shows up with great software in the next 2 years. 2. The speaker is just fine. But even Apple has stereo speakers. 3.Fingerprint scanner position is a joke. And there are better scanners in 15k range phone. 4. The battery. It's designed accurately for a day. I had to charge my phone once a day. During days of extremely heavy usage, I have slided the resulting down to 1080p. Otherwise also the device will last, but it will go beyond 15%. Battery have been monstrous in previous notes, but can't fault samsung for playing safe.
But these cons are to minor for this device to get anything below 5 star
