I hate to say it, but I would surely buy a 256GB Note 8 no matter WHAT it costs!!! As an HD mobile gamer and long time Note user, I have been waiting for a version that really gives us enough storage space to save all data without rooting and patching directories!!!!!!! I really hope if comes to the U.S.

It would be a killer. But the Price would also kill your Wallet.

Even $1200? You'd still have to travel to Asia to get it as it won't be available in North America or buy on eBay for $2k.

It's funny how specs keep trickling out in the US - always behind on storage and RAM. These get bumped just enough for you to upgrade, but not enough for you to wait more than a few years to upgrade again.

I'm only considering upgrading my nearly 3-yr old Droid Turbo because of a compatibility issue with a smart lock I bought. And I'm dreading it, because there isn't a single phone out there that I want. Might be a used Galaxy S6 for me, and that's not very exciting because I'm paying $150-200 for the same specs I already have. Although I guess I break even if I sell my unlocked Turbo....but with my luck the S6 would break the first time I dropped it.

I seriously cannot wait for this to become available. I have my Note 4 still going fine but I was going to get a Note 7 before they decided to become flamethrowers. It is time for an upgrade to a beast.

Hmmmm....just saw an article on an almost bezel-less Sharp Aquos S2 that looks VERY interesting.

Why do these variants of these phones never make it to the US? We seem to always get screwed when they come out with phones like these. It's such a buzz kill.

I totally agree. it can be fustrating. maybe there are some flaws that they can get away with overseas. too many lawyers in the US.
