I'm Glad its working all good, Faux Sound gave me a headache but i was not willing to give up and finally nailed it, enjoy the kernel!
Thanks for the snacks!!!!!
I can't say yet. I have all the charger sliders at max. I hope that's not dangerous. Fast charge normally takes maybe 40 minutes, right? I'll have to see if it's any faster. Also I'm curious if the wireless charging is faster. As I said, I felt on Friday at work that the wireless charging was definitely working faster than usual.
Same for me.
So am I the only one here that got the email from Sprint that offered the Note8 with 200$ of the price with online pre-order? Makes my monthly payment 28.88$...according to Sprint, and the Galaxy Forever program too? After 12 months of paying, trade in for newest Note or Galaxy S series.I'd look at LG. But also I don't like the idea of paying a monthly device charge for a device I never even "own" anyway. I got my Note 4 after the Note 5 came out and I only paid $1 on a 2 year contract, which was fine with me. The new "no contract" plans aren't much cheaper and you end up paying like $1000 for your device sometimes. It's a bunch of bull$hit IMHO. So probably I'm stay with my Note 4 until it dies.

I haven't seen that offer but even still, no removable battery and I'm not interested in paying $30/month for my device. I've never "leased" a car and I don't want to "lease" my phone either.
Edit: I got an email from Credo that showed pretty good pricing for iPhone (for my wife and our best friend, NEVER for me!) and for S8+ (no Note 8 yet) but as I said, I'm not interested in a phone with a fixed battery anyway. They don't seem to have the LG phones. Also, I figured out I'd be paying a lot MORE with Credo than I'm paying Sprint at this point. We own all 3 of our devices and we get everything unlimited for 3 lines for $155 and that's going to go down to $130 when my contract expires in October. If I HAD to pick a new phone I'd get the LG V20. They have it on lease for $10/month or $270 to purchase. I just hate the idea of "leasing" a phone.
I can see your point also, but I think eventually all phones will have non removable batteries. Especially for the water resistant factor. My wife's old S5 was water resistant with a removable battery, but I don't see that as being submersible. I could be wrong, never tried. As far as the Note8 goes, I will probably do the same as I did when I pre-ordered the S8+...received the phone, registered for the GearVR with controller and ordered the $99 bundle w/256gb sdcard and AKG Bluetooth headphones. I never even had the phone activated. Received all of that in the mail then returned the phone. And yes the GearVR with Bluetooth controller works with the Note4, and the AKG Bluetooth headphones work simultaneously with the controller. So for the Note8, I can pay $10.73 for pre-order shipping and register for the $200+ Gear360 camera then return the phone and keep $200+ worth of free equipment...and I'm only out $10.
I don't have much experience with either myself, but this is your party so I'm sure you'll make the right decision!
Edit: After a quick search I discovered Faux has no impact with bluetooth use which is how I play most of my audio (either in the car or during classes to a bluetooth receiver) so let the others chime in fir what they need it for...
