    I don't know what happened to it, because that link worked this morning!

    Call 855-726-8721 and ask about promotions for former Note 7 owners

    And now it works ... maybe the server was overloaded with requests.

    It IS a nice looking phone. I wish they gave credit for the N4. They stop at the N5 :(

    What do y'all think about the aspect ratio (18.5x9, same as the s8 afaik but I don't know what the note 7 was)? I guess the idea is that if they make it too wide, it would be hard to hold and thumb-type, but it seems to me that using the stylus for note-taking would feel strange on such a long, narrow screen

    So all this poo-pooing the Note 8 and telling us it was such an expensive waste of money... and YOU bought one??? Well, okay... but if you're buying phones while simultaneously saying you know you can't afford it, well... that's on you, sport. I've been saving up for a year for this phone.

    and btw, sport, i lost use of my legs which afforded me last year to pay off my s8 plus recently, so in one year its been a 1900.00 expenditure.

    The best buy near me had a couple of functional phones to try out. I never saw the note 7, so I was kind of worried about the stylus on a curved screen, but the note 8 seemed much flatter through the middle than the s8

    i was estatic to finally see this get released. im currently still using my note 4, and i was let down last year with the 7 and glad i never jumped aboard with all the battery problems. so i have been paitently waiting for the 8, i made the leap the day after the unveiling and got up early at 7am and preordered mine from Sprint.

    I was not keen on the idea of "leasing" my phone, as i have never done so nor made monthly payments on a phone EVER, however i was very much in need of a new trusty cell to have.
