I have the Note 8 and have not had any issues. Although I do see some slight battery degradation, but at this stage in its life, it is to be expected. I love the Note series and will stay a customer as long as it is here to stay.
The Best of Both Worlds work and play. I've always loved the note in fact I've owned a few of them. The one thing I recommend Samsung continue to do is let the customer utilize the SD port for storage this is the only reason I didn't buy my last note I bought the 7 Edge and I will never buy another screen that has the wrap-around Edge screens because they are weak and break very easily. If Samsung does not allow SD Storage with any of their phones and only puts out wrap-around screens I will go to the Apple
