And as for batteries, its not the use-case of carrying around an additional battery that you cited. Its nice to be able to replace the battery when it wears out.

I don't find the Note 4 lacking in performance to want to replace it.

Here's a tip: don't make in your mind a response to what's not stated.

Latest iPad Pro will offer 512 GB. Soon 1 TB will be a standard, then 2TB.

M33, 30 Jun 2017The price of Galaxy Note20 will be 3000$!eh...likely $3,700 in year 2029 if SS still makes the note, assuming an increment to note# by 1 yearly.= note20 in year 2029.

I wonder if there is any apps that will allow the memory hungry videos and photos to be connected to a portable external drive like western digital essential passport 1-3 TB via USB 3 cable and type C at phone and enhance the user experience.

It is a matter of preference of buyers, their money -> their choices to make. US$1,000 - buy a laptop or a phone - which have and offer the best utility for them.

I rarely scold on the forum and it will backfire on yourself. Why you worry people spend their money $1,000 or more on phones? I don't use any samsung phones but am interested in the comments to have a feel of sentiments.
Thanks and bye.

I have msd cards of earlier versions and they are transferring to pc at only 23MB/s .So many writers say "why worry? got slot for msd cards". They never think further of the time needed to write to and read from the media.

Fixed storage in phones works faster as the circuitry helps to shorten the seek / write of data. That is why I am suggesting 512 GB storage as the next lap / step in year 2018 and eliminate the msd card.

Sean, 01 Jul 2017For such an expensive phone 1000$++, 128 Gb should be standard..... moreYes, samsung makes memory chips by loads of shipping containers.

So the logical step to take, to me, is to take 1- and reject its phones. Simple, no need any scientific theory.

No offer of 512 GB rom and 16 GB ram to be the ultimate in storage and eliminate the need for slow msd cards. What a spitty.

Rizwan, 02 Jul 2017Unfortunately, no 256GB ROM/8GB RAM....What a pity!Do you REALLY need all that?

  • SSGodMode

I'll take a refurb Note 7 please. $1100- thats someone's mortgage bro.

I am samsung lover since its started. But now samsung took that step to remove home button that is why i am disapointed.
Now days other smartphone are aslo going to make home button they hadn't before.
I think samsung should seriously think about it otherwise it will become a second nokia.

and the price of Note 8 MUST be much lower due to the programmed obsolesce: the battery is not removable/user-replaceable.

on Note 4 i have to change the battery EVERY YEAR, it only fully lasts 11 months.

Wasnt the Note4 costing about $800 back then?? Today money depreciates so $1000 is not too much to ask for a technology packed phone like the Note8.

I pay $200 for a performance torchlight like the Nitecore TM03. There are many $10 torchlights but they cant compare a hair.
