    For anyone who missed it, the Note 8 is basically an S8 Plus with:

    (1) an S-Pen;
    (2) a dual-camera rear setup (standard camera and telephoto camera, both with OIS);
    (3) a slightly more square shape with less curved screen edges.

    Anyone love it? Hate it? Thoughts?

    I'm a little tempted, because as a former Note 7 owner, Samsung has offered me $425 to trade in my S7 Edge for one (and when I returned the Note 7, they had given me a full refund plus $100, so I effectively paid $650 for the S7 Edge a year ago). And that dual-camera setup sounds tempting.

    I like it. I'm going to wait for the iPhone 8 Plus and Pixel 2 XL to be announced before making a decision, though.

    Seems awesome, not going to get one no matter what though. Screw Samsung and their trashy locked bootloaders.
    Waiting on the Pixel 2 XL.

    I'll likely get an Exynos version. I'm not touching a Snapdragon version.

    I want to like the Pixel 2 XL, but (1) no headphone jack, and (2) I'm a little scared of boot loops on an LG-made phone after the Nexus 5X, G4, and V10 fiascos.

    I would go for it if I was wanting a Samsung phone. I had a note before and it was good.
