Like the idea of the Dex desktop connection.

How you guys getting on with the Note 8? I was really looking forward to the iPhone X but even seeing the new iPhone 8 prices on contract it is ridiculous! So decided Note 8 it is. Went into my vodafone store aswell so got a great deal & 60GB of data with free sky sports for 24months! Winner

(Think my Mac book pro may throw a wobbly).

Really want one but the tariffs are far too excessive. May think about buying one outright and sticking to sim only as i have done for the past few years.
Still using my Note 3 and starting to show signs of slowing down etc so time to upgrade v soon.

I think it would have been nice to have some of the options the US are getting (128Gb card and wireless charger) instead of Dex.

See I've gone for the 60GB data, unlimited minutes & texts also sky sports got it for £56 a month. £30 upfront so a really nice deal. Considering I work nights it means I can stream all night long now and (try) to use the data.

I'm also doing my DAS bike test so thinking to buy a ram Mount once got my bike and use it for a sat nav also

well just placed my order, should come in the next few days and its not to bad a deal i ended up with.

I got the phone off contract direct through the Samsung upgrade scheme, (Galaxy note 8 dual sim) which was £90 deposit then 24 months at around £33, but if after 12 months a new handset comes up i can send it back and providing its in reasonably good condition and fully working they will take it back and trade it in clearing off the final 12 months payments and swap it for the new model and thus beginning another 24 month contract, Or if i want to keep it (bearing in mind my last note 3 i've had 6 years) i continue to pay the £33 for the remaining 12 months. 0% interest.
As for contracts, i was previously paying £44 for my wife and I with vodafone getting 3gb data and unlimited calls an texts, but vodafone signal both at work and at home is rubbish. So after 20 years Ive changed provider to go with BT (who use EE network) offereing 2 sims each with 5gb data and unlimited calls/texts. for only £19.
