    I have some lag, and Samsung have replaced my faulty Spen, no thanks to the crapphone warehouse. Other than that all is nice and I have no plans to buy the Note9. Or the 720p crApple phone. 😂

    It's worth checking if anything is draining your battery almost as much as it is being charged overnight. Also think if any new apps have been installed.

    It could be a change in environment as well.

    I had an issue a while back where I would take it of charge at 6 am and lie in until 9 and it would use 25% battery in the 3 hours.

    I was in the attic room at my folks and it was on the cusp of wifi connection. It must have been piling power into the antena to stay connected.

    Turned off the wifi overnight and it was fine.

    Environment can be an important factor.

    Being smack bang between 2 cell towers can cause constant switching and increased battery usage for instance.

    I'm back to charging from 50% each day now.

    She is jealous!

    mine is running fine still

    that said I still prefer the note 4 screen, I just do not like curved screens.

    but I am guessing I have to get used to them

    I ve been having the best battery charges on my Trusty Android than any other device. The only downside i constantly experience with my note8 is the call volume. it gets so low that i can't hear a thing. i have to use bluetooth earset or speaker.

    i agree.id rather have the note4 screen over a curved screen

    My wife's only complaint with her note 8 is the battery life. According to her after updating to Oreo her battery life has declined. Other than that she's happy. I was thinking of getting a note 8 but I am moving over to project fi actually thinking about getting the pixel XL 2 (even though it doesn't have a headphone jack)

    Thats one reason i get leary about updates as important as they are. i hate when my device works perfectly then some update impact happens and can't uninstall.

    But i must say my note 8 is my fav
