  1. 1. Minimum 16mp camera, 12mp is annoying when you zoom in.

    2. 4gb RAM is okay considering there's not a lot you usually do in a phone, but the RAM management should be like google.

    3. Bring back the IR blaster, it's very convenient and costs hardly anything to put it in the phone.

    4. Lastly, ship it with a safe battery, don't try to overkill such things which ruin a very capable and deserving phone.

  2. I don't know guys, I love Samsung but don't like what I was put through with the Note7. It all depends on what the S8 comes with. Just think whatever the S8 has the Note8 will have and ten some. Its just another 5 months wait for the Note8. Waiting for the note 8 would give me more time to pay off my S7 edge that I was forced into. Like I said I love Samsung and if this S8 is packed with goodies and Samsung does a little something extra for all us former Note7 victims I might be tempted to pay off my phone, give it to my pops, and get the S8.

  3. I am not getting rid of my Note 7 and I wont be taking any further updates. My Note 7 doesn't get over 105F it barely gets warm and has never gotten hot. My S7 edge on the other hand feels like it gets hot enough to fry an egg on it easily reaches 140F plus. I'm going to keep my Note 7 until the Note 8 comes out because there is simply nothing out to replace it with. I use it to translate Russian all the time, make gifs, I take notes for clients and do many other thing with the pen that you can't do with any other phone as easily. The only thing to replace the Note 7 is another Note 7 or until the Note 8 is released.

  4. If Samsung does not make an attempt to remedy the contract limitations for those of us that turned in our phones, I'll never own another Samsung product. Many of us upgraded our phones to the Note 7. Returning them locked us into 1 or 2 year terms for our replacement phones.

  5. I love Samsung, but without the Note lineup, I'm inclined to get a different phone such as the LG V20 or it predecessor for that matter. There is also the OnePlus 3 or ZTE Axon 7 that give you great phones without hurting your wallet.
