    I had a Note 8. Very nice device. Beautiful display. Only downside to me was the curved glass caused a lot of false touches with my palm when I stretched across the screen and battery life was closer to the regular iPhone than the pluses or the X.
    Ultimately, I sold it because I prefer iOS. However, for a person who either likes Android better or doesn’t really have a preference, I would definitely recommend at least handling one. Like the Plus sized iPhones, the size doesn’t work for everyone but if you don’t mind the large size it lives up to its hype in my opinion.

    I checked the Note 8 out last week and it is a gorgeous device.
    I’m just not a fan of Android these days.

    My brother in law has a Note 8 and loves the device. I played with it on Thanksgiving and the display is beautiful and it’s fast.

    But I prefer IOS and I use iMacs in my business and the integration between IOS and my Mac desktops is second to none.

    Tried the X but my note 8 beat the X out. Very disappointed in Apple this year I firmly believe the X is a beta device and next year it will be a completely different device. The swipe gestures just seem to be slower than how the note works. Apple could of done much better IMO.

    I agree. It’s very unintuitive. For instance with the Note it’s so easy to go from one open app to the other...or even use split screen.

    Use it for a few days, and if you don’t like it.. then you can return it.

    The iPhone X or iOS for that matter is not for everyone.

    Just from your posts here I’ve thought that for a while. But I figured you already had the phone the way you were talking about how bad it was 🤣

    The only thing wrong with the Note 8 is it's made by Samsung, worst customer service you could ever get from a Tech company. I wouldn't rely on their phones to run a chook raffle neverlone a business.
    If i was given one for free i would just sell it.

    Touch wiz gets me angry, it has awesome hardware but very poor quality software. That’s why Apple will probably sell million iPhones for every 1000 note 8 sold.

    I had the note 8 first but just Samsung’s history with updates, software/hardware optimization, and releasing 20 devices a year affecting resell value , the iPhone seemed like the better choice for me

    Split screen yes, app switcher no. The gesture based app switcher is so much better than double pressing on the home button twice now. Plus you can just swipe L/R on the bottom bar to go from one app to the other.

    I have the Note 8 as well as the X. Both are great in their own respective ways.

    I prefer apple but way too disappointed in the X to switch waiting to see what next year brings. I am betting that the home button in one form or another returns next year. I still feel that the X is a beta device IMO.

    I’ve currently got both. Amazing phones in their own right but have to say the X just clinched it for me. Face ID is actually very impressive and reliable compared to the Note 8’s very hit and miss. The new gestures very easy to get to grips with on the X and probably the best sounding iPhone musically esp with my earphones I’ve had in a few years. Was on the fence about purchasing the X but definitely not regretted it.

    Couldn’t part with either as the best of both. Both will appeal to a variety of people. Can’t knock android or Apple.

    Way to disappointed? May I ask did you spend at least a week with the X to make that judgement? There’s no way Apple brings back the home button. That’s like saying they will bring back the headphone jack. Those ships have sailed...

    Give it some time.
    I’ve used it since launch day and I think it’s the best iPhone ever.

    I am not knocking the X in general I believe it's a nice device just giving my personal opinion on how it was for me. I am sure most will enjoy the X just not me.

    Lots of things about Android are hit or miss. I have the smart lock feature on my Note 8 set as home is a trusted place. Yet 80% of the time my phone will lock when I’m at home. Sometimes that gets frustrating.

    Since I work with both iOS development and Android, it has been a requirement to have both devices. Best of both worlds?
    I just wish the end user could unlock the bootloader (Android) and JB (iOS) and proceed at their own risk.

    I do prefer the Note8's display and Youtube works with HDR which I have not been able to see this on iOS (yet). I've gotten used to true tone and prefer it as well. The pen on the Note 8 is amazing if you're into that sort of thing,

    Both have their pros and cons. Neither is perfect for sure. But that's how it goes in real life, It's impossible to satisfy everyone with a single try.

    I had the X for a month and relatively enjoyed it, but felt like it lacked a few things that made it stand out. Yes it stands out for being an X, but it doesn't really pop to me for features. Most apps aren't taking advantage of the edge to edge screen. I switched to the Note 8 been on it for 5 days, phone is sweet, s-pen is cool. But the battery drainage on the Note 8 is killing me, compared to the iPhone the Note 8 battery life seems eh, I'm gonna perform a factory reset, maybe something glitched when I transferred everything over. If the battery life does not get better then back to the iPhone for me. Also the Note 8 will some times blow colors way out, like red and lime green

    I do appreciate the Note 8.
    It offers a great design and plenty of features. However, small things such as battery drainage or other problems is what keeps me away from Samsung.
