    Cool, Epic is great, Sutter health and Kaiser Permanente use Epic. The system I work for now mostly uses Cerner.
    I was at both of those places during implementation, as well as a few others on the west coast. I’m an independent contractor, so I travel all over. I’m currently working on the east coast. I’ve used Center a few times but never built it.

    Yep. I purchased a Note 8 and I'll be hanging onto it. The Note 8 is actually bezel-less while the X has a small bezel around the whole screen. The Note 8 also doesn't have that terrible notch. I can watch full-screen videos without that added distraction. The Note 8 is available now. I was able to walk into a T-Mobile store with no problems getting one. People will be waiting months to get the iPhone X.

    I will be getting an 8 Plus, though, to satisfy my iOS needs for the next year.

    it was to similar to the galaxy s8
    I traded in my S8 for a Note 8 because they are both really different from each other. The only thing the Note 8 shares with the S8 is the look, but the S8 doesn't have the S Pen, the extra camera on the back, and the extra 2GB of RAM.

    I love it. It is easily the best phone I have ever used, and I owned most major flagship device this year. But I have always been a Note fan. I've used most models since the Note 2.

    Me too. No way I'm giving this beast up. If I miss my iPhone I'll grab one. But this phone is a keeper. I love the look and feel and features.

    I love being able to take out the S Pen and take a note right away. I also love that both rear cameras have OIS. Apple does selective focus better (bokeh), and it also has the new portrait mode, but overall the Note 8's pictures look better.

    I totally agree with you. For my situation though they are to similar to justify paying for that as well as my iPhone 8, which I was going to get no matter what. I am also not a fan of the larger phones these days, so I am good with my ip8 and galaxy s8

    Oh I totally understand.

    I first picked up the S8+ when they came out and I traded it in for a regular S8 because I wanted a smaller, pocketable phone. The Note 8 only comes in one size: giant. So I figured I'll have to deal with the giant device because I like the features. But I understand why people pass on phones because of size.

    I’ve always been with the iPhone from the beginning. And I’m a geek too so I do Land up getting the flagship Samsung device every year too.
    Same as every year I got the S8+, wasn’t impressed with it besides the display.
    And now I’m looking at the Note 8 because just the other day I got a chance to play with a friends unit and was blown away by that camera system. It really threw away my iPhone 7+ shots.

    So here I am stuck wanting the Note 8 and the iphone X

    It’s always nice to have the best of both worlds.
    As of late, I can no longer be bothered switching between the two platforms. Apple 100%

    I do love Samsung’s design and display!

    It certainly is exhausting switching around and I'd had my 6s plus for a year and a half and thought I was content in my little ecosystem with my iPad mini 4 and iMac until I saw the Note 8. Couldn't resist.

    The Note looks like a really good phone, but I will get an iPhone. I use a Mac, and I enjoy having my two devices in the same ecosystem; iMessages, Photos, Reminders, Notes, iCloud Drive, Music etc. There is much parity among devices these days, so I see little value in ecosystem changes. I have gone over to Android and Windows at varying times in recent years, but it doesn't really work out for me, so I am done experimenting.

    I imagine so. It is everything I want in a phone except it runs Android. I prefer it to what I 'think' the iPhone X to be for numerous reasons.

    I usually go back and forth between Android and iOS. I like both OS and I understand the strengths and weaknesses of both. However, I have learned that I usually go back to iOS because of the app experience and ecosystem. Honestly, I’m a little exhausted of switching ecosystems purely because of how a device looks when at the end of the day the look of the device won’t keep me around if I’m missing some functionality.

    So what I am saying is that while I love when devices look sleek and push the design limits, I’m being more practical because at the end of the day I’m going to be doing the same activities and using the same apps. So it makes sense for me to stick to (what I consider) the more cohesive app and ecosystem experience where most of my friends and family are also in. Not that one is better than another but just a more practical choice for me right now to stick with iOS.

    Both phones do what I need but this one does extra stuff I've grown to love. Being that I can still FaceTime and approve apps for my kids on my ipad I figure why not have the "fun phone." The picture in picture feature is something I've grown to need on my phone. Yes I can do it on my ipad mini 4 too but I'd rather not lug that around. This phone is way more fun as far as customizing and PIP. I don't know. I got bored with my iPhone. Yes it has better app quality and the ecosystem with my Mac and iPad but I'm getting along just fine without it and loving this funner phone. And yes I know that's not a real word lol. If it is it shouldn't be lol

    For sure!
    At the end of the day, Android OS doesn’t tend to perform as well after a few months of usage.

    While I like Samsung's hardware, even when I used Android for a number of years I avoided Samsung like the plague because of the skin they use over Android (used to be Touchwiz now it's something different on the 8 series phones). I prefer Google's vision for Android styling if I'm going to use an Android device. Once Android 4 came out the OS had a much better look than the old days which was what originally drove OEM's to skin those old versions of Android to fix some shortcomings and also to be different.

    I also learned after checking out the new S8 and S8 Plus that my parents upgraded their S5's to a couple weeks ago that I don't actually like Samsung's curve edge design. It feels nice, but leaves an ugly visual distortion on those edges. I'd rather just have a super thin bezel like the X.

    I will be getting an 8 Plus, though, to satisfy my iOS needs for the next year.


    This doesn’t look bezel-less to me. There’s clearly a forehead and chin albeit a lot smaller but still there.
