Whenever, I am considering a new phone such as the S8 or note 8; I usually like to perform as much research as possible but, if you were looking at advanced features have you considered the S8 plus? My research mainly consists of going on YouTube and watching a couple of videos as well as go into a physical store to look and handle the different phones. It really all depends on what you may plan on using your phone for. You can easily look up and compare the specs all you want but, you want to pick a phone that is going to fulfill all of your needs and wants. Do you need it for keeping track of appointments or writing down crucial information? Do you actually require the stylus? If not before then why would you need it now? Only you can be the one to determine that. Oh and in case you have not been following the news the S9 isn't too far behind as far as being released. So, you may want to wait for that! So, you have little over a month away of March 25 and the S9 and S9 plus that will be released. Which will you chose; especially since you have waited this long?
