    Post Does the S-View cover have any features on the Note 8 that it doesn't have on the S8?

    yeah, i had that LED case for the Note 7. (had to get a damn refund on it). It's nice. I had the S-view on the Note 4 and liked it a lot. I might go with the LED again, I just wanted to know what's going on with the new S-view and the Note 8 first :)

    Post [Q] is the DEX worth the price?

    Updating. Yeah, I think it is. I mean, I wish the USB part was retractable and it was also a convertible wireless charger, but it is pretty amazing for what it is. I can pull it up and do things on my phone on a full screen monitor. I think it is worth it *IF* you have the setup to make it...

    Thread Does the S-View cover have any features on the Note 8 that it doesn't have on the S8?

    Also, could anyone actually do a review with the Note 8? I'm still waiting on a good review with this cover and I always loved the S-views for carrying my phone in my purse.

    Post Verizon (VZW) - PreOrder Waiting Room - Who already ordered?

    Wow, that's pretty generous of them. I went for the camera because I already have multiple samsung wireless chargers and two 256GB Samsung Micro SDs. One of them is going to go into the camera. On my promotion offer, it was offered as a 128 and a wireless convertible charger.

    Post Always On Display top battery drainer - anyone else?

    That doesn't seem right. My Note 8 always has AOD on and after sitting on my desk for like 5 hours it's at 92%.

    Well you get the camera *AND* the charger so... giving a 256GB card *AND* a charger would have been *A LOT*. I went for the camera. :D It has a spot for a 1/4" screw mount on the bottom. I want to try attaching it to my motorcycle :D

    Post Anyone else getting their phone before their case? >.<

    Nothing I ordered will be here, today, when my phone arrives. But there is a case I'm interested that I wanted to look at first in the store, and that's the S-view cover case. I'll probably pick it up at the V-store, this afternoon.

    Post when is good time to buy Note 8 for a bit lower price?

    If you were a Note 7 owner that was eligible for getting the phone at about half price, it's going to be a while before you can top that without getting a refurbished phone. You MIGHT see some discounts around black friday and Christmas sales from certain providers, but I can't imagine anything...

    Post Bixby or Google Assistant

    Using the phone. Bixby. When it comes to looking up just about any bit of information: Google Assistant. The only thing Bixby is good for is if you ask it to search the internet for a specific set of keywords or a phrase. And even then, it's only about equal with Google Assistant. But it...

    Post Are you pre-ordering your Note 8 Accessories?

    I have it on order from Amazon. Don't expect it until the 12th though. I might get an S-view cover case from my local Verizon store if I can try it out first.

    Post Which color is best IYO & Which will you be getting?

    I didn't care for the S8's Orchid Grey but the Note's is much lighter and sleeker. I prefer this over black because I like to clearly see the ports and buttons. The only black phone I ever had was the Note 7 and that didn't last long. Kinda grateful.

    So... with all the early shipments and possible early arrivals in 3 days... who else has to wait for their case to come in?.. The official Samsung case I ordered won't be here til around 9/12. I think I'll just leave the phone plugged into the DeX station that I got, today, until then.

    I probably would have gotten the original Note if I didn't try one of those awful Droid phones first. :/ Shortly after I got my Droid, the Note was released and I really wanted one. The phone game was quite a mess back then. I thought Motorola was going places when Google acquired it and I...
