What are most people opting for the 6gb or 8gb ram? I got the 6gb because the way I justified it is faster CPU and ram coming in s10 models so when 8gb is needed rest of phone will be out dated anyways.

I have the 8GB, since end of the day it was less than a $300 difference for the extra 2GB AND 384GB of memory. You're not just getting extra ram, but also a lot more drive space. Even if memory cards are cheap, onboard memory will always be faster.

Maybe it will hold its resale value next year, by letting you charge $200 more on the resale market.

Thanks! Would you say it’s better to wait till November for Black Friday? I’ve always got my phones from carriers and they usually have better deals then

Based on what we saw last year, it will be cold deal.

Around Black Friday, Samsung offered a free $200 prepaid Mastercard. But delivery of that card took 2 months.

One option is buy the phone on the last day of this promotion. That would give two weeks to wait for the Black Friday deals to leak.

Doubt it. Seems like all those features run on Google AI.

Samsung can't even introduce the "What's Playing Now" feature that Google shows on its always on display.

And I doubt XDA can port those features over to Samsung.
