When I had a note I really just ended up using it for creative reasons. Writing, drawing etc.  I enjoyed it. But it was by no means necessary.

Some people just prefer it to using their finger.
Exactly. Typing is faster than writing, and how often does someone really draw on their phone... unless you are in a specialized field that needs it, I can't even think of what I'd use it for more than once in a while maybe.

I guess there could be some good games with it

First impressions?
It's huge. It's blazing quick, but don't see any difference between the Note8 and the S8 besides the pen.

Is it too huge?

Pen
Dual cameras
More RAM
Better screen

I guess if you have a Note 4 you won't find it to be so bad, it might even feel better.

The camera is great, and dual camera is a great Improvement. Very useful

Just got my Note 8.
Came with a 256GB SD card!

Anyone else get a 256?

First thoughts:

-Man this thing is fast!
-Camera is amazing
-S-pen translate feature is very cool.
-Still can't believe they sent a 256GB SD!
-It's big but I'm getting used to it. Love all the screen real estate.
-Wireless charger convertible is great
-I hate that you need to have a lock screen enabled in order to get notifications in the always-on display. Dumb!
-I miss the Note 4 edge screen a lot.
-I can't find any call recording apps that work.
-I wish Samsung did the double tap to turn the screen off like LG does.

worth figuring out an upgrade from my s8+?
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
