G6 is a strange choice
I'm surprised the V30 is the honorable mention vs. the G6. All anyone could manage to say about the G6 when it was released was "Oh, how could they release a flagship with last year's processor" or how it's LCD display is inferior to competing OLED displays"? Despite the fact that LG actually beat Samsung to the punch by bringing to market a phone with the newer aspect ratio by a month or two and the fact that Samsung had a limited time exclusivity agreement to have first dibs on the SD 835 making that processor unavailable to LG for months. Yet the V30 is the honorable mention despite having features and stats actually on par with current flagship devices?
256GB emperor edition of the note 8 from South Korea & The dual sim version from the U.K.
I was wondering why cant we get the the 256GB emperor edition of the note 8 and yes I know they sell it South Korea & I think they have it as a dual sim as well in 256GB. Also the UK has the dual sim edition too. Just like the Iphone 8,8+,X offer 64GB and 256GB options. It would be nice if Samsung gave those options here in the states.

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.

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
