    Mine has now been accepted and will be delivered within 30 days (as of yesterday). I chased them up and they got back to me on Saturday stating that the dispatch confirmation email I had provided wasn't sufficient. I scanned and submitted the document that arrived in the package from Samsung, and they replied back last night saying that it did not show the initial order date. At this point I got quite annoyed and told them that the order was from Samsung and if they bothered to look up my order number they would be able to find all the necessary details... I still uploaded a copy of the original confirmation email though just to entertain them.

    If it helps anyone, I had pre-ordered during their conference.

    Sorry if this has already been answered but can't seem to find it. Does the Note 8 Support AptX ? I was looking to purchase some Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless headphones but can't seem to find a definitive answer regarding AptX and the Note 8.

    I'm sure I read an article yesterday that said it does... don't quote me on that though.

    Yes definitely. Samsung's Galaxys have support as far back as the Galaxy S3 days.

    If only the Note 8 had AptX HD, that would have been sweet.

    I'm quite surprised it doesn't tbh. A shame.

    I read a few threads here & there on the web & the general feeling is that it doesn't. Unless someone on here know better?

    Thought I'd enquire about my Dex Claim yesterday after the queries on here and magically they've validated it in the middle of the night last night. It might be worth checking the statuses of your claims as it may push them through.

    Anyone else have the official Samsung wireless fast charger (latest model)? I'm finding when I put the phone down on a night I can wake up with no charge, after a bit of testing it just seems like you have to put the phone down dead centre on the charger.

    Are they and all wireless chargers like this? It seems strange to have such a large mat but you can't use all of it.

    I have a CHOETECH wireless fast charge capable stand from the rainforest. Cost about £15 and I've been impressed with it. Actually noticed the other night the handset can be off centre and still gets charged.

    Well, I've decided to return it. I'm going to look at other options.

    I don't want to have to worry I've got it central everytime I put my phone down. I had it upright at first and it probably was better, but I changed it to flat for convenience.

    Plus I'll probably save myself 50%

    Edit: On another note(!)

    No update for me :(

    That's the concern. The S8 was the same, they gain micro scratches very easy. I think it' the coating not the actual screen but still looks terrible after a while.

    I'd advise anyone who has claimed the Dex to call Samsung on 03452160123 this is there dex claim line

    Mine was showing as "claim received" but was told they still needed more information(they had not contacted me over needing more) ..They sent a link and I took full screen shot of dispatch email and scanned dispatch note and sent that

    I just called the line, and it said to wait 30 days from order before chasing.
    I will wait a few days and call back.

    Cheers, will try later.

    My dbrand skins have arrived :D - will give it a go and report back this weekend (I fully expect it not to look as good as they do on Google images). Currently on 57% battery with 2hr51min SoT :D:cool: and that wasn't from 100% (94% I think).

    Root is now available for both variants but the consequences don't sound great; phone only able to charge to 80% on the SD and tripping KNOX on the Exynos losing secure folder and Samsung pay. Is there a way to not have YouTube adverts without root? I really miss Xposed but not sure I want to root....yet.
