I can get the OnePlus 6 for $502.55 w/ a student discount. I can also receive the Note 8 for $599.20 before a $16.80 rebate. The total for the Note 8 would be $582.40 after my rebate. Why I would rather get the OP6: It is the newer device, offers a faster processor, cleaner software, faster DASH charging, strong software support, Project Treble, and has flagship elements at a more affordable price. Why I would rather go with the Note 8: SD slot, S-Pen (hardly use it, but still a cool feature), better cameras, stronger water resistance, more ubiquitous repair facilities, QHD HDR 10 compliant AMOLED screen, Samsung Pay, Samsung software features, more premium feeling, Iris Scanner. I am leaning towards going Note 8. This piece of news did cause me to have some second thoughts about going Note 8: https://fuseboxed.com/2018/05/25/oneplus-6-how-to-display-battery-percentage-on-status-bar/ OnePlus gets an automated DND mode mainly. Thoughts?
