It makes me realize this slightly tall and narrow form factor is the trend going forward and rightfully so. IPhone X shares the same formula. I came from a 6S Plus and had used 8 Plus for couple weeks before returnng it. On the pluses I always had difficulty reaching the far left of the screen (I'm right handed and have medium-small hands for guys), with the Note 8, im able to comfortably maneuver the entire screen one handed with ease, and yet also getting the benefit of having a bigger screen. This is not another thread to bash the Pluses, just my honest and personal opinion. What I'm about to say may offend some Pluses owners but after using the Note 8, now when I look at the old Plus phones, they kind of remind me of those electronic drawing boards for kids at toys r us, the wide form factor and thick bezels are such a turn off for me now.
