over in the "Software Update Lets Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note8 Owners Disable Bixby Home Button" discussion:
It should not be forced like that anyways. I have the S8 and cut a notch in my case to avoid pressing it. Bixby is flawed and is still not ready for release (it's still a beta program). Samsung kept coming out with software patches as people kept finding ways around having that button activate every time. Looks like they are finally admitting defeat at least as far as that is concerned. It should still be a choice as to what we want to have associated with that. I'm sure that 99% of people would rather have the button linked to Google, opening the camera, or just completely disabled.
over in the "Hands On with the Samsung Galaxy Note8" discussion:
No Band 71/ 600 Mhz Support
Contrary to popular belief, the Note8 does not and WILL not support T-Mobiles Band 71/ 600 Mhz network. It has the same chip as the S8/S8+ (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) I do, however, suspect that the new S9 will have it though. The phone i saw in tmobiles video is probably the S9. Sorry for the bad news
