    You're getting it only to prove me wrong.

    ^ if the case maker is correct then we have an actual image and I don't think it looks bad at all. This coming from someone who is not even looking Samsung's way this year.

    Never go over to the Dark side! It is bad enough my youngest daughter wants one. I would rather stick with my Pixel XL another year and get the Note 9! I seen the MKBHD picture on Twitter!

    Other than the fingerprint scanner being next to the flash (dirtying up the flash) I'm trying to get what is keeping you from going with it. If that shape resulted in them being able to put in a larger battery Im thinking great.

    But yeah Im curious what about the look is turning you away?

    They should make the Note stand out... Include a 4000 mah battery then you can justify the thicker phone... Like the Mate 9


    IMO the fingerprint location is horrible.. I barely use mine on thia S8 + not comfortable to hit it and it's hit or miss when unlocking.

    Not sure why they didn't just place it in the same area Google placed for the Nexus 6p, 5x, and pixel (XL). Been working solid all this time for them, but Samsung has to be different.

    Yup.. I figured it was rush bc of them not getting under screen front on S8 but if this is true it's just as bad.. Sensor works quickly when I place my finger correctly... It's just getting it right.. I registered both fingers twice for better accuracy but it's just not great.. Thank God for trusted places and Bluetooth keeps phone unlocked

    For the fp scanner on my N5, I register one finger four times in every position possible. That way it doesn't matter how I hit it. I'm hoping this will be just as effective on the N8...

    But I will live with it if it's not.
