Is there any way to confirm if travel pass will work?
Samsung is giving me a very hard time exchanging the phone.

Got this case: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073R7191C/?tag=cl03f-20&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Seems great, though it's the first time I've ever used protection for a phone. I really don't get the glass back obsession.

Anyone have a screen protector recommendation?

Your ok with the "slim protection"?
I got the Spigen tough armer and the supcase full body rugged
Both with Mil-spec drop protection.
Can't take the chance with a $1000 phone. I know I'll drop it many times!

Glass backs are ridiculous. I realize they help with wireless charging but they rarely give a good trip and then there's the obvious issues with breaking.   Other ways to make a phone look nice IMO.

I didn't get it, but leather skins look really nice. And are way thinner than cases.

doesn't look like they have the note 8 just yet. wait for a 90% off sale
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I already responded to you on DDMS.

You ordered the camera. Why in the world would you expect to get the 256 SD?

I totally misread your post.
I ordered the 360 camera and didn't even know the other package with the wireless charger included any SD.....

Re cases, I got two to try.
Medium protection:
Spigen Tough Armor Galaxy Note 8 Case with Kickstand and Extreme Heavy Duty Protection and Air Cushion Technology for Galaxy Note 8 (2017) - Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073R7TLHV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_F6TUzb1W2RJA7

Slim:
Maxboost mSnap Galaxy Note 8 Case [Perfect Fit] [Midnight Black] EXTREME Smooth Surface [Scratch Resistant] Matte Coating for Excellent Grip Thin Hard Protective PC Cover Samsung Galaxy Note8 (2017) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0749CSD7D/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_d7TUzbK51SQ89

The slim case feels awesome, covers the corners, and I'm sticking with it. Hopefully will provide some protection from a fall.

Hey Guys,

Just got my note 8 and its great, There is so far one thing that is getting me extremly frustrated.

Notifications

I used to have whatsapp and twitter have pop downs with new notifications. Now I just get a vibrate for twitter if im lucky, and my whatsapp is all over the place. 

my goal would like to have just pop up, new message or 3 messages 4 chats... etc. I do not want any content to be displayed on my screen other than when i swipe down. (ive seen it on the S8 but not able to combine on the note 8 )

Any thoughts?

Lastly, does anyone even use bixby? Or does this edge work for anyone when the phone is off? I find the always on display to be nice bec of the clock but its a pain to check any incoming mail/tweets and so on, I like to quickly swipe down in lock screen to determine if i should open the phone for any of the various vibrates.


@Dan I am a sworn Zagg guy, but it didnt come out, so I bought something on amazon that I have used in the past. I personally hate cases and once the screen ocver comes I will ditch the 93 cent case i got.
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Have you messed with notification settings? There are many different settings for example see attached.
