You've seen the contract prices and you might be tempted to sign up and avoid paying big upfront for Samsung's excellent, expensive and explosion-proof Galaxy Note 8 -- but while signing up for a plan may mean more money in your pocket in the short term, you could end up paying much more over the life of the phone. Here's how much you can save by buying a Note 8 outright and choosing the right prepaid plan.

It might seem strange that the most recent Samsung flagship phablet you could actually buy is the Galaxy Note 5, which debuted way back in August 2015. But the Note 6 never existed (Samsung skipped that number when jumping to the Note 7), and despite multiple unsuccessful attempts to fix its exploding batteries, the Note 7 was killed and pulled from stores last year, which left a gaping 15cm hole atop Samsung's phone lineup. If I were a Note fanboy, I'd be pissed about the sad series of events that has resulted in a year wasted.

Samsung has finally unveiled the Note 8, successor to the notoriously-explodable Note 7. We've already taken a look at its specs, pricing and Australian availability, but how does it stack up against Apple's iPhone 7 Plus? Is it better? Worse? Prettier? Faster? More powerful? Let's take a good, hard look.

After the literal garbage fire that was the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung's upcoming flagship phablet needs to be more than just a big Galaxy S8 with a stylus. So before Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Note 8 on August 23, we're going to run through all the rumours and speculation to see if the Note 8 even has a chance of delivering on all the hype.
