    Note 8 is a Awesome phone

    In reviewing the Note 8 it has come to my attention that this phone is Awesome! Whenever I need quick notes I take out the pen and start writing on the fly. Great screen, speed, power. This phone has it all. I am VERY happy with this phone and I’ll always continue to back up Samsung where they have the latest and greatest technology hands down. Will never go back to an IPhone. Can’t wait to see what the Note 9 entails.

    Best phone I have ever owned

    The large 6.3inch infinity display is perfect for multi-tasking and watching videos. The dual cameras are a big improvement from previous generations. My favourite feature is the Spen. It’s awesome for browsing the web, taking notes and even drawing. The phone is loaded with tons of software features that make all the great hardware very useful!

    For me since I’m constantly working and unable to carry a computer around on a regular basis having this massive phone act like a computer makes my life so much easier. It’s great for me to do excel and Word documents on it as well. Also love the pen!!!

    The note line provides the absolute best in everything a power user needs from an Android phone. From the screen and expandable storage for media enthusiasts, to the S-Pen and performance for productivity, this phone does it all.

    The best hardware!

    I am an avid tech enthusiast that always “needs” the latest and greatest of what is available.

    I’ve dabbled in just about everything there is to offer, and the Note 8, even compared to newer phones released, holds up as the best experience I have ever had. The screen size, resolution, UX and UI are seamlessly matched in harmony.

    I have been with Samsung throughout it’s evolutionary journey since the S3. I’ve watched this company release phones, listen to the criticism and address each desire with successive updates.

    The Note 8 is “the one” (actually, the Note 7 was “the one” but we’ll skip that part :)) to bring it all together.

    There is just something about the way this phone feels in your hand that is hard to beat. It truly is a premium experience.

    Thank you for putting such a thorough thought process in to your design.

    Are you hiring?

    neat phone

    I have been using the note 8 for 5 months now and absolutely love it. Its very strong, practical and user friendly. I just wish the bixby button would be the google assistant by default without the need to manually fix it. Also the Spen comes off everytime the phone is dropped which can be annoying. Scratches are easily seen due to the curved screen so i recommend using a screen protector. and it is more heavier compared to the previous notes.

    Favorite phone

    This is by far the best Note phone Samsung has made. I have had the Note 2 and 3 to draw experience from. Didn’t like the Note 5, step backwards in my opinion but I’m back and enjoying the Note 8.

    Flawless phablet

    Perfect overall performance. Extremely fast when doing multi tasking work. Haven’t take pictures yet but I’m sure the device takes decent ones. The S pen is far better than my old note 3.

    What it does not offer

    I wish I could purchase spare pen when we first order the product. It turn out to be quite a challenge to get the right one, so now I have half a dozen that doesn’t fit the product and the one that do I have to tape it up so I could retrieve the pen from the phone. It’s obviously a poor copy even dough I paid premium price for it.

    If I knew that I would not have bought it. Manufacturer should be thinking outside the box when to put a product out there. It’s not because I fell asleep with the pen in my hand that I have to go for months without one. Bottom line is I paid pretty good money for this and I should be able to get the right stuff.

    Great phone but maybe wait

    Definitely my fav phone as of right now! On concerns are the short battery life and price. Google pixel is starting to catch up so maybe wait to see what the note 9 has to offer or look into the next pixel.

    Great phone but

    The video would lag every time I would try to record something. Took it into service and they said it was a software issue. Got the phone back and with in one month same thing happened. Going to bring it in to service where I will demand for a new phone.

    Great Phone

    Ive been a long time Samsung user (my Note 8 is my 8th Samsung, including the ill-fated Note 7), and I couldnt be happier with this device. Everyday performance is fantastic, with smooth operations, good battery life, and an excellent camera. Not to mention the phone it self it beautiful, and it comes with great earbuds.
    I would love to see a larger battery when comparing this phone to the S8+, given the Note 8 is a step up from Samsungs other flagship and more expensive. Otherwise, the only place of improvement for Samsung is the speaker. This phone could greatly benefit from a dual audio setup (i.e Pixel 2, iPhone 7 & newer.)
    Note, I do work in the mobile industry and sell phones on a daily basis, and I can comfortably say there is not currently a phone on the market I would rather have.
    Great job Samsung.

    Beautiful

    This phone is one the the most beautiful pieces of tech I have ever owned. From the screen, to the infinity display, and the blue colour.

    The S pen is great for jotting down ideas at any time, or doing things like writing a grocery list.

    The camera is awesome, the dual camera system is awesome.

    Add in, expandable storage, water resistance, wireless fast charging, and still having a headphone jack, it’s been an awesome phone.

    Some negatives would be the price, but with the features and the quality it makes it easier to swallow. The non remappable button, lack of forward spacing speakers are the main negatives I notice while using the device.

    Great phone – camera takes poor photos of moving objects (e.g., children)

    Love everything about this phone except the camera – frequently produces blurred photos of my daughter with even the slightest amount of movement – deal breaker – I ordered an S9+ to replace it.

    Die Hard Note Fan

    Since my first experience with the Note 2 I fell in love with the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The Note 7 was the pinnacle of the Note series yet the Note 8 was even better still. I use the pen pretty much daily for writing lists or extracting and copying text from documents. The water resistance gives piece of mind if you spill a beverage or accidentally drop the phone in water. Taking it around the pool means you don’t have to worry about potentially getting the phone wet. I have a 256g SD card for watching movies while traveling and to store music and photos. Wasn’t sure I would really notice 6g of Ram but it makes the phone run alot smoother when working on multiple things at once I couldn’t go back to less Ram now. The Note 8 works very well with the Android software. I just can’t say enough about this phone, hands down the best smart phone on the market as the Note series always has been with every launch.

    Bibby button needs to be remappable

    While I love the device I find that using Bixby is not something I’m interested in. So with that being said, I would love to be able to remap the dedicated Bixby button to something of my own choosing.

    Amazed.

    To start things off.. it has a beautiful, large & immersive infinity display that wraps around the sides. Very bright and clear, crisp. The perfect media device. The camera is absolutely gorgeous! The spen is marvelous in what it can do. I do recommend getting a case as the all glass finish does make it fragile and slippery. However, if you do happen to drop it. There might be some cracks but the phone will work just fine. (Speaking from for my friend) very durable in that sense. The finger print sensor is a little uncomfortable with its current placement (at least it has a fingerprint sensor) but the iris scanner and/or facial recognition is also Amazing. Great buy & definitely worth the price tag.

    Not as good as my older Note

    Unfortunately the screen in this phone is terribly sensitive. I can’t count how many times I’ve dropped my older Note, it got submerged in water… screen always remained intact. This note 8 has 2 spots of damage ( weird moldy like spots) from the start. One I know when it happened. The phone fell from my pant pockets while I was sitting, doest justify the damage. The second one I can’t explain. I was in the shower and the phone was in the bathroom cabinet right before I notice the new damage spot. I can only think it was from moist in air which is absurd. I regret buying this very expensive phone. The screen also has some “blind spots” that gets me picked sometimes.

    High performance, high price

    This device is great. I’ve never had a performance related issue. The screen is phenomenal, HDR is a significant pro, especially coupled with 4k content. This is quite honestly the nicest looking screen on the market.

    The camera is good, although the “live focus” is a tad gimmicky. Although I do appreciate the pro mode with some DLSR features like shutter speed and exposure selection. There’s better overall colour representation from other devices, but that’s a nitpick. The dual camera is also pointless.

    Actually using the notepad function is quite useful and very accessible and intuitive, and has simplified some daily tasks for me.

    Kudos to Samsung for de-cluttering and getting rid of a lot of the bloatware that plagued previous devices.

    The build quality is there too, the device is heavy, but manageable. It feels substantial. It looks even better. Only problem is that size becomes a bit of a beast once you put on a case. And all that glass… Just so fragile.

    The only downside is the cost. Depending on the carrier, dropping to a S8 or S8+ is significant savings and very similar performance. Sometimes it just feels like I’m paying 200 dollars more for a pen, especially considering that the the dual camera isn’t really necessary given its limited use.

    fast but badly designed

    i am happy with the size and weight. nice fast and crisp display.

    i am not happy with the pen and screen, which is the only reason i bought it. the edge curve of the screen is so annoying when you need to write or draw. it makes no sense to put this on the screen of a note, not even to make it fancy. very poor design choice. i would return it if i could find another appropriate phone, unfortunately only samsung makes a beautiful phone with built in stylus like the note. pen is sometimes unresponsive.

    I simply love my Note 8. The only phone I like more than the Note 8 is the idea of a Note 9!

    The screen is remarkable, the solid construction while keeping an ultra slick design is also second to none.

    As long as there is a Note phone, I am not an Apple customer.

    I really love having my note pen to take down information quickly and easily like a grocery list a phone number or address on the go. The camera is great and easy to use. I’m still getting used to the edge and sometimes because of it I open apps unintentionally. But over all I love my note 8.

    Very Capable Device!

    The note 8 was a great step up from my Note 5. I use the S Pen often and for me this was a major attraction. Its great that this phone also has a great screen, nice size and fantastic performance.

    I play the odd MOBA game on my phone and browse the web. The size is good enough that I dont need to reach for the tablet. Love the ability to take the pen out and take quick notes or edit PDFs.

    My only wish list items would ve for a flat screen (remove the bent sides) this is to add to the surface area and give me more writable pen space and to add some stereo speakers. The launch price would be a hard pill to swallow if my work was not paying for the device.

    Kudos to Samsung for keeping a headphone jack and leading the way in wireless charging and battery performance.

    Best phone I have had since my Note 4!

    The Note 8 is a great phone!
    I have always been in love with the note series every since my Note 4.
    The Note 8 can do so many things and Bixby is truly useful.

    My only nitpicks are that the camera and fingerprint placement can be made easier to reach (not that I have a problem reaching it) in terms of ergonomics. For example, the S9 with the camera placed vertically instead of horizontally would make it easier to reach. Additionally, the battery life can be longer as I remember my Note 4 was a beast among beasts of phones yet the Note 8 did not necessarily live up to that name.

    Of course a premium phone comes with premium pricing and love how Samsung has a financing option to take advantage of.

    Overall, I still love the phone since day one of its release and look forward to further improvements to Samsung phones.

    Crunch

    S Pen a problem

    The phone is fabulous but the S Pen is weak at its joint. I and others on the net have had their pen split just under the Samsung name. The cost of a replacement is outrageous. Given that the stylus is one of the main reasons to buy a Note, Samsung has to correct this issue.

    This is a power user’s phone

    I have been a Note fan since the Note 5.

    I LOVE the s pen.

    There are some people who review the Note 8 and say they don’t use the s pen after a while… you need to train yourself to use it because once you get in the habit of using it you won’t want to go back.

    I use the the S pen for screen off memo all the time. I hand write notes in Samsung Notes to keep myself organized. I make cat gifs and drawings of our cats and send them to my wife. I sign documents using write on PDF… the list goes on and on.

    I have been a Samsung user since the Galaxy Ace phone in 2011 and Samsung has always created features that end up getting adopted into later versions of Android. Split screen being a big one. Those of us with Galaxy phones have been multitasking with multi window since Marshmallow.

    I could go on and on but I love the Note 8 and Samsung Experience.

    The Note 8 keeps me organized and having fun and is powered by the awesome Snapdragon 835.

    My ONLY critisim is if you max the brightness and play a lot of video, the battery will drain fast than you’d like.

    Other than that. Huge Note fan and have gotten lots of compliments on the amazing display.

    I love my Note. It’s my third Note for a reason.

    I do love the Note series. It’s a top-end device, so you’re getting the performance of the S8/S8+, and approaching the anticipated performance of the S9/S9+. (The RAM boost over the S8 series is a nice boost!) On top of all of the things you get with the Galaxy S series, you also get the S pen. This is what I love. At work, when I head out into the mill, inevitably, someone needs me to check on something for them. Of course, if I’m there, I had an agenda of my own, so I’m focused on something other than what they want. I pull out my Note and take a note then and there, then pin it to my Always on Display. BAM! I love that and use it so much. We’re now pushing into very expensive territory, so I will likely wait longer before upgrading, unfortunately for me. Another change with the Note 8 is the tall aspect screen. This is less handy for writing as your hand has less support to write clearly. I would change that without hesitation if I could. I would change it, but never give it back. I already did that: Note 7 RIP.

    Love this Phone.

    I love this Phone…I had the Note 3 gave it up for the S6 edge and missed the stylus so much. Glad you guys fixed the issues with the 7. My only Complaint is that the added bonuses for Pre order in Canada were not as good as the US or other markets. I love the wireless charger and the Expandable memory card but would have really loved a VR head set, a Dex or a 360 Camera. I think it was a missed opportunity. In my opinion I would have given a choice of gift for the Preorder. Hopefully that is the case when we get to the Note 10.
    Thanks for putting out a fantastic product!

    Perfect for me.

    I really like the phone. The camera is awesome! Fast processor. Nice BIG screen. The only thing i am not too fond of is the curved edge screen. Hard to find an affordable screen protector that will stay on properly.

    Best phone on the market…BUT…

    Let me get this out of the way, the NOTE 8 is the best phone period. I’ve owned every note since the first note, I’ve also owned every Galaxy S since the first.

    There used to be a clear distinction between them, the Galaxy S had the latest hardware for its release time and the Note would have the latest specs at time of its release which would edge out the Galaxy S but you knew you were getting the latest amd greatest every time.

    With every release there was also a design distinction a premium yet professional look, the Note4 had the best design and felt awesome, it was edgy, sharp, the moment you held it you felt it was different.

    Ever since the Note5 the Note has become recycled hardware. whenever I buy it, I’m paying premium yet I’m getting 6MTHS old hardware in 6MTHS+ old design. since its basically a glorified Galaxy S with a bigger screen and the added S Pen.

    I keep coming back to the Note because of the S Pen, I love it, it’s awesome, but thats pretty much it. I can’t say I have the latest hardware.

    Whoever thought the edge screen was a great idea is greatly mistaken but hey you get that extra .2 inch more because of it so you can have bragging rights on the specs sheet. there’s nothing that the edge does that can’t be done on a regular screen except the edge light notification (do people even use that?), lets have that at the expense of screen protectors that can’t fit properly and more brittle corners.

    So as of this year the Note8 will be my last annual purchase, instead I’ll bump my version every two years or maybe every three years depending if it lasts or if the screen breaks before then. Phones in general have become stagnant and boring, everyone is fighting to have the best camera when we’re at a point where people can’t tell the difference anymore they have to rely on “specialized camera score sites” to see which is the best camera.

    Maybe I’m not the target audience for phones but I am the reference for my entourage, and unfortunately I cant wholeheartedly recommend the Note lineup anymore most of my recommendations end up buying a mid-tier device because there’s nothing justifying the price difference anymore.

    Beautiful, elegant, sleek and sophisticated. Not a thing this phone can’t do. I’ve been with Samsung for a long time now and have no plans of throwing in the towel as long as they keep this note series and the amazing phones coming out. By the way Samsung, I still have my note 7 🙂

    All about the S-pen

    The screen is a bit narrow for some things and the rounded edge does nothing for function, however, the s-pen makes up for those shortcomings. The device heats up to fast to see the performance difference over the Note 4 and the battery is meh for endurance.

    Now for a big one… WHY CAN’T THE SCREEN ROTATE UPSIDE-DOWN?!? you have on-screen keys… makes it impossible to remember what end they are on when using full screen apps in landscape! There are no defining features top from bottom other than the ear piece; the front face is black, only in bright light can you see it… When a call comes in or the dialer is used software could just rotate back to upright and there would be no confusion.

    Thank-you for keeping the headphone jack! Could we get a stronger amp though?

    Not everyone is looking for the thinnest phone ever… 2mm wouldn’t hurt to get more amp-hours in the battery…

    Is there a way to put an “eraser” end on the s-pen? (super minor just asking)

    Since preorder and pick up at the store, I am enjoying full of it. I am not value the fancy features rather taking highly on functions to live everyday needs. Everything is so smooth without glithces. Few days ago, I start to read Amazon Kindle e book downloaded and I am so happy that phone connecting my own dictionary so well. I could not be happier. Whenever I look for solution of my necessity, I realized that this phone made realy thoughtful.
    Highly Recommend!

    I replaced a Note 5 with the 8 and I love them both. The battery life is great, you can do everything you need to do on it and the video quality is excellent. It is a beautiful looking phone. Plus it is great that Samsung offered a free charger and memory card with pre-order and the credit card for those with Notes.

    This phone has excellent features and the amazing pen is really handy in many situations. As a teacher I am using it every day. Very slick, better than S8+ in appearance I am happy I have purchased this phone. Very expensive in the mist of many other phones not sold through carriers with already great performance. We will see the future but I only expect a fare price in a competitive market.

    Amazing screen. Perfect feel in my hand.
    My only complaint is this:
    Why are so many more colour and memory varieties available elsewhere and not available in Canada?
    Even the S9+ has two colours available in Canada but four in the USA? Why are we considered second class here in Canada, especially since our mobile bills are so much higher here.

    Great phone with many miss opportunities

    Nice phone with nice camera, but that’s about it.
    S-pen is nice too, but with the curved edges, it makes it hard to use when you need to go from edge-to-edge. The battery life is average at best. With moderate usage of emails, web searches, and Facebook, it manages to last about 20 hours. Fingerprint reader, like everyone says, is in awkward spot; it’s just too high up.

    Love everything except 3 things so far.
    1. Night time clock display does not rotate display when phone is turned horizontal
    2. Case has to be removed every night to charge on wireless charger in verticle position if you want to see the night time clock. Phone will charge with case on but only horizontal and then clock is sideways
    3. First phone with a curved glass edge and of course I crack the screen on the edge already and with a tempered glass screen saver and case installed.

    Worth The Upgrade

    I started with the Note-II, it was great; skipped the Note-3 and then went to the Note-4. It was (is) terrific but felt there was enough new features to warrant the purchase of the Note-8. Without any doubts, great decision; brilliant device. I have bought them all outright as I prefer not to be saddled with any particular plan. No regrets.

    I was one of the lucky ones to grab it through a pre-order campaign at best buy. It has served me very well in the following months. The stylus has been a blast. My only complaint so far is how poor Bixby is. I was glad when added the option to disable the button.

    Bixby

    The Note line has always been strong. Please remove the Bixby button or feature (don’t force your users to avoid and constantlt needing to manually ignore things they do not need). Focus on what you do best.

    Improve integration of calendar and widget functionality (users of Note could appreciate better calendar integration).

    Fingerprint reader at back of phone render it virtually useless.

    As a previous iPhone owner the Android phones turned me away due to battery life. All is good now. I also love the full keyboard with letters and numbers on the same screen.

    I frequently use the S Pen and love the camera quality.

    The note 8 is a step in the right direction.

    The note 8 has made me more accustomed to using facial recognition and voice activated commands. I must say, its awesome to talk to your device and send a message, or call up a restuarant by searching it on Google and all the while be driving.

    Ive also noticed apps can run almost async. If I’m having a bad Wifi connection, I can double tap the menu key out to the 2nd app and manipulate that before the first one loads. Sometimes, I can have like 4 apps running like this.

    But theres alot to be done. Everytime I say OK google it says cant connect and I have to repeat myself. Bixby randomly activates and really has no applicable usecases, besides turning off the display. I mean like points for using your phone? And why’s there a dedicated button for it?

    Also, less than 6 months after the purchase the LCD has begun to show signs of burning.

    Theres alot you guys can do with your products. I write little peices of my code, draw diagrams and manipulate Excel sheets on the device regularly. I cant remember the last time I filled out a web form like this or sent an email from my computer. The smart phone can replace alot of things. But it has to be reliable and innovative. Its has to work. And thats more important than sexy shapes and over promising screens, that burn. Make a phone that does things, and does them right. And no one could have thought that a phone could do those thing before.

    Lead the way Samsung, it’s about time.

    I really love this phone but if I had to pick some things that I think should be fixed it would be the screen capture. I can’t stand the Palm swipe thing it never works especially when you’re on a page that moves. Also on the screen that shows your time before you even go in your phone I don’t know what they call it I put a message on there that says if found call so and so and you can change the color of the letters but it’ll only let you change the colors of the top half I don’t know why it won’t let you change them all. There’s a couple of other small things I can’t remember right now but overall I think it’s a great phone and I especially love the charger you just set your phone on it and it charges. Simple! Oh and one small thing all the numbers and symbols you see through out this review was not me the phone does not like apostrophes. Every time I put one in it gives all these numbers and symbols.

Can certainly be a little large for some people and you’ll have to live with people always wanting to see if they can handle your phone when they see it but all in all not too bad.

    Phone is a little on the heavy side. Should br a little smaller like the note 7. and apps tend to glitch which never happens on a pure android os. And the bixby button is annoying. I had to disable it cause you always touch it accidentally when holding the phone.

    Besides that the phone is fantastic.. i just wish there would be a little less bloatware

Edge stuff is also very good. Overall very nice. Well done again. So close to being perfect.

    Incentive with expiration date

    I bought the new note 8 last october with a Samsung promo to receive a free memory card and plugless charger as a buying incentive. I was truly happy with my old note 3!.
    To my disappointement,i found out that i had to register my phone to get them (which i did register, but was told i did not !?: guess i am the one To prove it!!).
    When i called customer service i was denied the above mentioned bonus gift.
    extremly disappointed about that!!.
    I am pretty sure they will be my last two Samsung products.

    Samsung Note8 is Beast And Best Smartphone

    When Note8 was release I was the first person to pre order and buy the phone. Its almost 8 months and it never disappoints me. Im a heavy user using it to gaming, facebook and listening to spotify the whole day. So far so good with the battery and its fast blazing fast even I install Novalauncher on top of it. Btw the Camera was superb good the best among other smartphone I could say. The downside is, its expensive even its premium device still expensive though. But I will recommend it to everybody even if my pocket was still crying in almost 8 months of use.

    When they cancelled my Note 7 i was borderline crying. Was waiting for Note 8 and wasnt disapointed! Most complete phone i had the chance to touch. Touchwise, it is very soft and its rounded edge is a charm for scrolling or simple eye candy.

    As of March, phone is still on Nougat 7.1. Same OS as when the phone was purchased.

    Ultimate productivity

    Smartphones are great for browsing social media, taking photos and making calls, but not truly useful for productivity. The Note 8 is a productivity master. Browse websites as you would on a desktop and click the smallest of buttons with the S Pen. Super efficient in meetings and on the go for making written notes and sketches. The Note 8 has literally changed my working life for the better. I could not go back to a normal smartphone.

    Flagship phone

    Got this to replace my older Note 4. Definitely a big step up in performance and features. A couple things I’m not thrilled about:
    – no user removable battery. The battery is one of 1st things to go. Now you’ll have to send in your phone to Samsung to get it replaced
    – the curved edges aka infinity screen makes the phone prone to screen damage if dropped. The curvature makes it hard for any phone case to protect the edges. Unless you get a case with a folding front cover

    Fabulous s pen and Excellent phone

    I am so very happy with the s pen this version and I hope to see a new tablet with s pen soon! It draws nicely much better than my note 4. I am an artist and I use the pen to draw and animate on my phone.
    I have the LED case for my phone and it really adds some nice fun with it too! I made custom led icons for my phone.
    I am happy with the performance and durability. I have has this phone since lauch and have no scratches and no issues
    Sad some features are gone like turning up touch screen sensitivity that was useful. I live in Canada its cold here!

    Note 8 is a great productivity tool!

    1. The stylus is amazing for a photographer like myself. I can scout locations, take quick photos, and sketch down framing ideas on Google Keep, which syncs to my PC automatically.

    2. Overall design is beautiful and elegant. I just love the screen so much.

    3. Battery Life is decent, easily lasts me a day even when I am location scouting.

    4. Performance is decent 95 of the time, sometimes you experience chokes, but I am pretty sure those instances are caused by software though.

    5. Durability – so far so good. I haven’t personally dropped it from waist height or anything like that, but I don’t intend to do it either. The back is very prone to scratches, however.

    Perfect balance between phone and tablet

    Note 8 has a power of a tablet and size of the phone. You can do a lot with this phone that has perfect reception, camera and huge selection of applications. I am a heavy phone user and so far never needed to recharge the battery during the day. I do recomend Samsung Note 8 to all people who have a mobile office or talk a lot.

    unimpressed

    I wouldve preferred the Note 8 larger, like a Note 3, (the 3 is my fav fone so far).
    The cam is ok, better than my iphone 7s in most circumstances, but I can have a lot of fun with the 7s’ graininess in low light)..
    The screen plays a good movie or vid, but the phone stays alone at home.
    I detest the edge design; not a fan. Im tactile, I like to hold the phone as I choose not be leary of the curved edgés neurosis if I manhandle it a wee bit.
    I loved my old Note 3 because it was fun and large, and the ease of being creative with it, well, the Note 8?
    …not do much

    The Note 8 is, by far, the best phone that I have ever owned. The duel-lens camera is so amazing. It takes great pictures, near or far, daylight or nighttime. The infinity screen is jaw-droppingly breathtaking.

    An-Anomaly

    Screen Burn-in

    Having owned the Note 4 and Note 5 — I was very much looking forward to the Note 8.

    I Pre-ordered the phone (got the wireless charger and SD card promotion) and started using the phone Sept. 19. 2017
    Shortly after, I bought the Samsung Dex docking station and two official Samsung Cases.

    Let me tell you, this this is a work horse!
    The size, speed, high definition qhd+ screen, S-pen, dual camera, coupled with the Samsung Dex Dock — makes media consumption and business tasks a pleasant experience. About the only slight con would be the speaker / audio quality — Samsung should include stereo speakers.

    Being in the IT profession, I’d like to say I was self-informed of the potential screen-burn-in inherent to AMOLED displays. As such I always used the phone at 20-35 brightness. To this day, my Note 5, S6 and S67 Edge (all which I still have) show absolutely no screen burn-in at all.
    Recently however, since about a month ago in February 2018, I was very disappointed to see noticeable screen burn-in on my Note 8 of the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen!

    I called Samsung support, which advised I take it to a local Samsung repair center to accurately diagnose the issue. Even though I know this will get resolved — it’s disappointing to know that my brand new phone will be taken apart and repaired.
    I’m surprised the screen burned in so easily / quickly at such an early stage, despite my conscious effort to keep the brightness low, turning off the ‘always on display’ and ensuring the screen does not stay on unnecessarily!

    Best phone yet

    It’s the best phone I’ve ever owned. It has more features than any other phone on the market. It offers more freedom more customisation and I love the S Pen for taking notes and pinning them to the always on display. The screen is the best on any phone right now it’s awesome for doing everything from browsing the web to watching videos. The software enhancements with the Samsung Experience 8.5 and the 6 gigs of RAM makes a phone fly I’ve never experienced one hiccup. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

    Phablet

    The note 8 is small for a phablet. Seems a lot narrower than previous notes.
    It’s quick and Easy to use. Casing has been taking a beating without a rubberized case to protect it but the phone takes a minor drop without damage.
    Tricky pulling the external memory out.
    Great battery life… I usually get a full day of use without charging and the fast charger cable free charger is faster than any plugin device I’ve had in the past.
    Again no additional case on mine so it is slippery and tends to slide off table tops easily on vibrate…

    Battery doesn’t last, runs very slow especially Samsung email app (likely not just phone related), wish it still had physical home button, hate the curved screen does nothing beneficial only screws up getting decent screen protectors and cases, still love the pen, don’t use it regularly but when I need it it’s great to have.

    Great features as expected but disappointed about price going down so fast after paying full price f

    I have 2 phones one being for my wife. I also own all previous versions so was delighted with design and package but accessories and phone too pricey during launch then dipped in price suddenly weeks after I paid full price. Disappointed how Samsung offered the accessoriers directly but i was even more short changed by my Telus corporate provider. Nice camera and notes function can be buggy at times and software freezes sometimes but overall a nice phone. Note users like me can never live without the note function so other pretenders to the throne do not exist.

    Great phone but with a big price tag

    Love the phone in general, it looks nice, has great specs and performs really well for all of my needs. Pen adds convenience (I’m always jotting notes down). This is always why I like the note series. Battery is the biggest weakness however. Though I typically get topped up when I’m driving there are times when I’m running short before my day is done. If you can get by though it’s a great phone especially if you’re very business savvy.

    Too advanced for daily users

    The note has multiple great features but is kind of useless for the normal everyday users. For me there were more cons than pros…it is overpriced, the screen cracks easily, battery has a short life, the small width of the screen makes for difficult texting….
    I would not recommend for friends or family unless they are extremely knowledgeable in technology to use al the features.

    Also lags more than my S8+ .

    So far the best of the series!

    I was a little skeptical when they got rid of the actual home button. After using it, I can’t complain at all. I had to dust the sensitivity of it but great so far. All the best of Samsung features and the pen works better as well. Great phone. The only down fall I have found is the volume of the music when you use the headphone jack. I use it to stream in a work / homevehicke and the volume max’s out at a decreases volume. Not hood. But wireless is ok.. Just plugged in. Still needs to have two speakers for better sound but that’s the only things I have found. Great phone over all. Had the note 2, 3,4 and now 8. Never got any version where no extra storage card or battery could be changed. Wireless charging works great with an otter box.

    I’ve been a fan of the Note series over the years. This is the best note by far. The product’s design is outstanding and it’s packed full of useful features, with the s-pen as the stand-out feature.

    The lack of a removable battery is more than made up for by quick charging and a long lasting battery (full day of heavy use).

    Overall I am very satisfied and would recommend it to anyone who can overlook the hefty price tag.

    This was my first android device and I’ve been really happy with it. The phone is fast and has every feature you could ask for. I don’t use the s-pen a ton but it is really useful in some instances and love having it available. LOVE still having a headphone jack which I use a ton, still don’t get how companies can call its removal progress. Only thing that isn’t great are the speakers but outside of that its the best screen and form factor of any phone. Really happy with my purchase and switch, highly recommend!

    The Greatest

    The Note 8 was my step up from the Note 5. All of my information was seamlessly transferred over with an adapter and after signing in to all of my accounts, was ready for everyday use. Everything about the transfer was great too. My theme was applied, my apps were in the same places, my pictures weren’t corrupted. The only problem was that some of my games were not compatible with the phone. The games are older and I did not play them much but it was still a small disappointment. I would have given a 4 star rating in performance if it wasn’t for how old the games were. Everything else works perfectly with the Note 8. Amazing camera quality, easy to use features and settings, and of course the S-pen. With the Note 5, I sometimes used the S-pen to take down a quick note, but with the 8, I find myself using it every day. The 8 also out-performs or matches all other phones currently on the market. The 8 allows for ambidextrous use and a minimized screen to use with one hand. Even the fingerprint sensor is accessible with both hands. Despite people complaining about where it is placed, I have had no problems with it. Also, my camera never seems to have smudge marks on photos after accidentally touching it with my finger. The display is bright and vibrant; and can be changed to fit your surroundings, what you are doing on your phone, and the quality of the screen. The battery is long lasting and quick to charge. And, the phone comes with a micro-usb type C cable for charging and an adapter for your existing micro-usb cords from older phones. The speakers are loud and have excellent quality and the phone is water resistant. It is also surprisingly durable as I’ve dropped it many times without breaking. But, sometimes if I drop it from too high, the S-pen shoots out and you have to find it. The only other problem is that there are not too many cases to choose from for the 8. Whichever ones are available are quite expensive. But, all around this is an amazing phone with many capabilities. It’s well worth the money if you can afford a flagship device and my personal recommendation for a top of the line smartphone.

    I was so excited and waited for Galaxy Note 8 and then preordered this device.
    But sadly and unfortunately someone robbed my Headphone right in week 1 . It’s sad I could not enjoy and I can’t buy these at all in Market . More so I actually can not afford to pay any more for good headphones of other brand hence stuck with using cheap set lowering audio experience of note 8 .

    Any help ?

    Hate the bixby button and soft home button, hit the first one accidentally and second I can’t get to work. Curved edges is annoying and unnecesary, miss flat screen.
    Samsung note app also has a major issue. I write an average of 20 notes a day concerning my business and every few days or so a note will lose all content. Tried everything to prevent and have resorted to screen shotting noted that are critical because of the risk of disappearing

    Expensive But Worth It

    My previous phone was the Note 3, bought around its launch date. Before that, the first Note. Needless to say I was due for an upgrade.

    I would be lying if I did not say I was not hesitant to buy this considering the previous recall. It is a high end phone but after I thought about how long my Note 3 lasted me and how attached I was to the S Pen, I bought the Note8.

    I have not regretted it.

    The S Pen is great as usually and essential to my lifestyle. As an artist, I enjoy being able to make quick sketches on my phone while on the bus. I have even started to take class notes with it as my phone is quicker to reach for compared to a pencil and pad.

    The battery life is also considerably better than my previous phone. I was happy to see it lasting 2 days with normal usage compared to the roughly 10 hours my Note 3 lasted while on its last legs.

    There is a lot more I can say to try and sell this phone but in the end, the best compliment I can pay it is that it enhances my daily routine and comfortably fits into my lifestyle. I have never once felt awkward using the Note8. It feels as natural as a smartphone can feel and very intuitive to use.

    And to me, that is just great.

    Great upgrade from a Note 3

    Moved from a Note 3 to a Note 8 and wow what a difference on every aspect of the phone. The screen is amazing and everything just zips around with no lag. The form factor is skinnier than the Note 3 but fits nicely in the hand. S Pen works pretty much the same as before with a few extra features. The always on display is great.

    Overall, great job with this phone Samsung. If I only had one thing bad to say it would be the battery life, but easily solved carrying a battery pack around to supplement the phone.

    My first Samsung phone!

    This is my first Samsung Galaxy, and I must say, it hasn’t disappointed me. I love the design, the big screen is amazing. The pen is so helpful, and some fancy features like Live message are fun to use. The camera is beyond amazing. It’s always exciting to use the camera especially in low-light conditions.

    awesome phone, but two downsides…

    it sucks that you cant put a screen protector on it. it doesnt work the same with one, Ive tried twice. i found i had to hard press and sometimes multiple times for the screen to read my taps, texting was a nightmare. I always have a screen protector on and it doesnt sit well with me that I cant this time around. I dont care if they used special glass and that it takes lots to scratch it.
    The second downside I dont like is the rounded sides. I loved the previous shape. because of that it also makes it impossible to have a screen protector on due to the case. the case kept pushing up on the screen protector and loosened it. and I tried different cases.

    Incredible phone

    This phone still blows my mind after 5 months.
    This is the kind of phone I was dreaming about 10 years ago.
    Fingerprint scanner could be improved, I wish there was a way to export my handwritten notes easily to my Mac… but otherwise no complaints.
    Outstanding phone, by far the best I’ve ever bought.

    Love my Note 8 but ….

    Cons:
    – the finger print sensor is poorly placed and hard to use,
    – speaker not stereo
    – headphone jack should be at top
    – Bixby needs more work as it crashes all time.

    I’ve been a Samsung user for years and owned every Note series phone. I love my Note 8 especially my S-pen which has improved greatly over the past. The glass screen gets greasy and smudged with the fingers so using s-pen is better.

    In my next phone I hope to see above cons addressed and also:
    -ability to use dual SIM with SD card .

    In the meantime I hope to continue to enjoy my Note 8.

    Samsung Galaxy 8 is the best in its type. And it is the phone to have. I recommend it to anyone who

    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the best in its generation of phones., and it’s a phone everyone should have. I recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a stylistic and up to the task device, then Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the phone to have

    It comes with a bunch of cool features that sets it apart from many other phones of the same generation. The voice command that comes wit it works perfectly well. Biesby is the name of the voice command that controls almost all the features of this unbelievably well thought of and well Made phone. People, go for it, you won’t regret it

    I use the fingerprint reader all the time and never touch the camera. Being able to unlock the phone without a password with the watch on is cool too. I have zero issue with this phone, other than it’s almost too thin. It feels breakable when not in the case, but, that could just be because I always have it in a case. The camera takes great photos/video.

    Great phone, would definitely recommend.

    SPen fell apart

    The top part of the SPen, where the metal meets the plastic, split cleanly apart. Definitely a design flaw. Thankfully my SPen from my Note 3 still works with it. They just don’t make things like they use to.

    It’s difficult to find a good phone out there that will do all of what you want. This one probably does and it’s truly of the highest quality.
    It’s quick, battery efficient, very elegant, ergonomics.

    I’am however disappointed in the price. Wow, that’s an expensive toy. I have to say that I was very happy with my Note 4. It was not as performant and elegant but cheap compare to this one.

    Enjoying the switch-over. Goodbye old brand!

    I used to be a die-hard customer with my previous brand, who originated in my home country and were noted for “security.” They lost me when they started charging per call, in advance, before I could ever talk to their tech support.
    I decided to bite-the-bullet and switch over to android. I purchased myself a new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phone. I had over a thousand business contacts that didn’t make an easy switch-over, and most of them had to be re-entered manually, which took me about 2 months to complete.
    Now, I’m extremely glad I made the switch! There are a few features I miss, like my old brand could bluetooth to multiple devices at the same time, and the screen brightness on my old brand seemed to be brighter outdoors, but overall, the Samsung features outweighs that of my old brand, and being an Android, I now have the ability to download any apps I want.
    I’m extremely satisfied with my new Galaxy Note 8! The convenient Samsung “chat” support (who don’t charge any fees) have been extremely efficient at helping me understand my new phone. Good bye old brand… yes “GOOD”bye!

    Best phone yet

    This is the best phone I have ever had. I had a note 4 for 3 years before this and loved it. I can’t believe the display on this phone! The only thing I wish it had would be stereo speakers. At least Samsung kept the headphone jack. The 6gbs of ram really help to prevent lag. I think all phones need at least 6gb of ram.

    If you are a note taker or an artist, you will love this phone!

    There are so many functions on the note8 and I am glad that they designed it this way because your job gets done faster. You can multitask and have different pages open at the same time, great camera (especially at night), Bixby helps a lot, amazing screen and display (colors look amazing), and more. I also love how you can make notes and it shows on your screen while your phone’s screen is off (helps a lot with reminders and to-do lists). There are so many different features I can talk about but I would love to talk about the pen. I am so glad Samsung came up with this idea of having a pen with your phone. I use it to draw, make screenshots, take notes, make gifs, and I lost count of the different things possible with it. The pressure sensitivity is no joke. It is the same as working on a wacom tablet or cintiq. Depending on also what program you draw on (I use an app called Medibang which allows me to bring in and export psd files with layers) these functions will give you amazing results. Just wonderful, love the phone!

    Missing a lot of features That other phones have.
    I was expecting more from the note 8 since the note 7 was dropped. Always had note devices and don’t see much of an improvement. Oh bad the note 3 4 5 and preordered the 7.

    For the price might as well get am older note 5.
    Or am s7 if you live without the s-pen

    Powerhouse of a device

    From the very first Note I’ve purchased until now, I can say that with each generation released it just gets better and better. The Note is a powerhouse in terms of performance and reliability. It is unrivalled in it’s class and outperforms majority of the smartphones out in the market. I can never switch to any other device as I end up coming back anyways to trade in the phone to upgrade to a Note.

    I have used iOS for years, but once I tried my first Note (the Note 4) I never looked back. Even after the Note 7, I switched to an LG V20. Was a great phone…but I could not resist once I saw the Note 8. It is the ultimate work tool and entertainment device.

    Exactly what I wanted in a phone. Calling, texting, fast, useful Apps and the S – Pen. Helps me jot down notes for checking later. Besides, the Note 8 can almost be used hands free by using Bixby or Google for everything like starting Apps, searching the internet and setting schedules etc.

    Makes life easier

    Never seen anything so good for taking quick notes, and very easy to access those notes later. Didn’t use to note things down; now I always do. So easy to use.

    Durable; been played with often by a two year old: he likes to use the off-screen note section to draw things. Yes, he can remove the stylus on his own. He’s too quick with tech. But I do have a bunch of his first drawings now!

    Internet loading speed is great. Very useful for checking things on the go.

    Phone is too big to fit into my pockets, but this is where one changes your pockets for the phone, not the other way around.

    My first encounter with screenshotting on a phone, and the screenwriting feature is so easy to use. If you’re one to regularly search something up and send to others, this screenshot and screenwrite options are fantastic.

    Very pleased with my phone.

    Best Phone I have ever owned!

    I have had cellular phones since the first “bricks” came out and the amazing technological transformations have been no less than stunning. That said, the Samsung Note 8 is the best phone I have ever owned. Samsung has created a marvel of engineering. It has a perfect blend of performance and features and exemplifies the innovative spirit at the heart of this global technology leader.

    It’s a phone… Nothing special at all. I have used the note since the first one and the screen size is why. The phone will not last for more than 2 years. The note 8 has a non user serviceable battery. That’s a huge mark against such a power hungry device. Nothing fancy about the features. The stylus is cool but so is Rick and morty, point being they both don’t really do much. (I don’t know what those random numbers are…. there were no bad words)

    The Note 8 is so close to perfection that I can not wait to see the Note 9

    Love my Note 8 and everything it brings including a pretty great design, a ton of features that I still haven’t found ALL of them, and performance we haven’t seen from a Samsung phone before.

    I would love to see some changes however with the Note line and I’ll go over those a little and where improvements can be made IMO below.

    The Note 8 has a great design that looks beautiful but practicality is beginning to be pushed aside for esthetic appeal and I’d like to see it differentiate its self from the S line while bringing functionality back over this latest design.
    The curves should be taken off of the Note series, it look great but I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to deal with those curves when tryin to use the S Pen as the curves and the narrower aspect ratio take away from the usable space for drawing a little too much. Samsung I KNOW there are a TON of ppl that stay away from Samsung’s flagship’s because they flat out hate the curve displays so it would bring more ppl over to Samsung with a flat display flagship device and the Note could and should be that device. You can have a nice rounded design that fits with the Samsung design style of late while still offering a screen that is flat and make more sense to be using a S-Pen on.
    I’d also like to see the phone made ever so thicker to allow a little more battery but also it would make the device feel more substantial and allow for thr camera to be flipped vertical so that fingerprint sensor sensor is where it should be under the camera. I’m a very large man with very large hands so I’m fine with where it is but more hate it and can’t reach it.

    The display on the Note 8 is beautiful (though I prefer LCD for its bright crisp whites over OLED deep blacks, but I know many don’t feel this way) but the audio just doesn’t match the display we NEED to have dual stereo speakers that are on another level for the largest display on a flagship today to immerse the user into the content like a Samsung phone never has before.

    I would love to see lastly all of Samsung’s duplicate apps to Google’s removed and downloadable from the PlayStore or Samsung’s app store IF I thr user wants to use them. I know you want to push ppl to use your apps but the ppl that are going to use them are going to use them and the pl who are not just are not so it’s frustrating the user putting them there and taking up space in storage and resources for no reason if your like me and use Google’s apps and never touch Samsung’s. This would follow the trend you’ve been going with the last couple years cleaning up your UI which many ppl are actually liking now but they could LOVE it as much as they love your hardware.

    Thanks for making some amazing tech for us to enjoy and if you ever need anyone to test your products and give feedback and design ideas I’ve been around the mobile scene since my first Samsung made Nexus S which I actually bought two or three of them because I missed it each time I got rid of it. Would love to hear back from you guys

    This is undoubtedl a VERY expensive phone. It came along after my Note 7 was taken from me – and is almost good enough to forgive Samsung. Would like to see better voice response capabilities – probably already there ut I haven’t had the chance to figure it out. Hmmm…. maybe a negative. Speakers suck – even compared to MUCH older phones

    I am a Samsung lover, therefore overall, I will give Samsung Note 8 4 star!! The only thing that sometimes got problem is when using a dual screen, it will freezes after a while and not be able to turn off the phone until it drained all the battery. Also the screen felt very hot once it is freeze! Otherwise, I will give a five star!

    In general this phone is great. However, when playing fun little games, like Yahtzee for Buddies, and web based games, the animation was smoother on my Note 5. That’s a huge disappointment. Everything else seems great though! Although I do wish the S-pen had a tutorial, because I know it can do a lot more than what I use it for.

    I love the S-Pen and ability to screen write as well as the camera capabilities and improvements. The design is great and happy to have the edge capabilities.

    There are many compatibility issues within several apps that I find very frustrating such as Facebook and Square Reader. It also does not connect through Bluetooth to my car Sync system for listening to text messages hands free. It does connect for phone calls and music.

    I wish I had waited for the S9 Plus.

    Overall a great product

    Overall the Note 8 is a great device, having in my opinion only 3 cons:
    1 – The most annoying issue ( and unfortunately common to all Samsung devices) is the delay on software updates. This is the one reason that always makes me reconsider purchasing a Samsung device. Android 8.1 was released in December 2017, 3 months after and Samsung’s flagship has still to receive this update. Unacceptable.
    2 – Battery capacity. Even though the 3300 mAh is enough at most times to last the day, it does deplete fast and charges slow.
    3 – Speaker. It’s a terrible speaker when considering the Note 8’s price point and that is supposedly Samsung’s flagship.

    All in all its a great device, but unless Samsung does up their game on the next Note devices I will be considering trying something else.

    Best Phone ever

    I had the Samsung galaxy S8 Note and is the best phone I have ever possessed. The camera is fantastic. It’s fast and make everything I have to do. I work with.

    An amazing return to the series

    This is definitely the phone I had envisioned as an upgrade from my trusty Note 4. The screen on this device is absolutely stunning. An excellent size, very bright, extremely sharp, and vivid colour and contrast. Sound quality is great. The speaker on purchase was slightly disappointing, but I have noticed it to be noticeably louder now (perhaps software fix?). The camera on this phone needs absolutely no explanation. Incredible camera, extremely quick dual-pixel auto focus. Pro-mode and Live Focus modes make for stunning picture and video. The S-Pen functionality is still amazing, and only improved upon by features like the Screen off memo feature. The only thing I would change about this device…. is to depart from the infinity screen. Yes it is gorgeous, yes it fees like it melts in your hand…but for myself and a lot of note enthusiasts I have spoken to – it is impossible to find an effective tempered glass screen protector that works, has no loss of touch sensitivity, provides a proper seal, and is case friendly.

    Most features are good, screen is fragile

    I have purchased 3 Note 8s since October and two of them have a scratched/cracked screen already. The screen is just too fragile. We had screen protectors (from Samsung) on them and they both shattered with the smallest impact. Dropping cell phones is a reality – even for non-clumsy folks – the hardware needs to be tougher.

    Our old Note 4s were very durable and rugged. They must have been since we had them for almost 4 years!!

    I do not think the Note8 is as intuitive as it should be either. With the Note 4 it was just a few taps to find a feature now we have to almost always Google how to do something.

    I like the size of the Note8. I like the Pen, and use it everyday for work stuff. Overall all cell phones have there drawbacks and performance issues and I don’t think the Note 8 is any worse than anything else on the market so yes I would buy another one and yes I would recommend it. At the end of the day it is an awesome little supercomputer in my hand with great Camera and Video capabilities that allows me to access the world instantly.

    Not Note’s finest hour

    Screen’s clarity and colour is great as always, and performance is solid. Its still light for its size and no part of it , including the pen, feels flimsy. Would have preferred the extra screen to actually be with the rest of the phone and not just used as awkward hot keys.

    I have been using Note model phones for a while as I have big hands and enjoy the larger line of phones.I kept my note 6 through the lifespan of the 7 so this was my first with the curved screen. I was skeptical about the edged screen as I saw no value in the addition of it, but I gave the phone a chance due to Samsung’s track record with me (again I missed the 7 😛 ).

    My job requires me to be moving from building to building so im always on the move and use my phone as my work computer at times. Its screen size has always been large enough to allow me to present to clients if my tablet is running low.

    When I first bought it I could not find a screen protector that would cover the entire edged display which started to worry me. I bought one anyway and decided live with a bit of my screen unprotected. My case was a Samsung Protective Standing Cover and since it was designed to allow full access to the edged screen so it only protected the phone in cases of being dropped on its back (you can see where this is going).

    Sure enough after 5 months of use the screen cracked right at the apex of the curve. The drop was from my hand to onto the corner of a desk, the drop was about a foot. No internals were damaged and it still preformed great but I was disappointed how easily this phone went from my mobile workhorse to something I only use in mobile emergencies if I cant get to a work station. I have actually gone back to using my Note6 even with the minor hardware downgrade.

    I dont feel the quick actions and the lock screen notifications that work with the edge screen justify an entire design change of the phone.

    If the next model of Note has a curved display I will look elsewhere.

    No oreo

    Got rid of this phone, the note 8, just because it didn’t get the oreo update. I got the pixel 2 xl, love the fluidity of stock Android.the note 8, and Samsung in general drag their feet when it comes to software updates, what a shame!
    My pixel is on 8.1 AND March security update! As of March 7th, where is the Note8 🙂

    Favorite phone yet!

    Fast phone that allows me to organize files on it the way I want. It has a great camera with plenty of features.
    The Bixby button is annoying, but can be disabled. I’d be willing to try Bixby again when it improves, but I would not want a physical button on the phone.
    All apps run quickly and I can customize the interface the way I like it. It’s water-resistant too!

    Great android phone from Samsung!

    Coming from an S6, this phone is awesome! I loved my Gold S6, which I probably would have kept longer hadn’t I left in my back jean pocket and put it in the wash. The fact that it wasn’t waterproof contributed to bricking it 2min after I took it outta the wash. This Note 8 is dust/waterproof to some extent, which makes me feel a bit better since its a $$$ phone. I’ve had it for 5 months and can’t be happier with it, Samsung makes some really good products!

    Solid Device

    I work business sales and being able to to have the s pen to be able to take notes on the go is key to keeping me organized so i’m not looking for random stick notes or pieces of paper that i wrote something down on. The screen is amazing and performs very well in the samsung VR. The camera always puts out some great pics .

    Work Horse

    When my work laptop went in for servicing I was deathly afraid that work would get missed. By learning a few key tricks i was able to do three presentations, an annual sales meeting and conduct committee reviews with ease just from here. Printing reports via wifi and of course writing memos is what this smart phone lives for. For business, nothing compares. For fun, there is so much room for music storage and the waterproof shell gets me on the water for morning paddles taking beautiful shots with the new dual cameras. Love it!!! It is my 3rd Note series.

    Dislikes:
    – when receiving long text messages the phone does not allow you to just read the message as a whole. You will only get a portion and then have to open the message up to continue reading it. UPDATE PLEASE!!!!!!!!
    – finger scanner being located on the back (if you have nails and a case that actually protects the phone, FORGET IT!)
    – a bit big & heavy
    – facial recognition, tested this out….if you put a photo of yourself up to the phone it will unlock
    – if you drop your phone alot, get a case! Glass phone isn’t the best and the cost to replace the front screen is stupid expensive
    -more variety in default ringtones

    Likes:
    – customized phone to your liking
    – cool features (If you remember how to use them)

    The device is great overall. Love the display, love the slim bezel, love its size, love the performance, love the battery life.

    However i have been experiencing intermittent issues with the spen since the day i bought it. After contacting Samsung and having the spen replaced, issue still persists. Ive owned every Note since the first Note and I never had an issue with the spen until now.

    I love this phone.

    I had the note 2 and had it for years and it performed perfectly to this day. The note 8 has not slowed down yet. I am looking forward to the new Android features that will make it better. The only flaw in my mind is that some apps and links are located right in the curve of the screen making them difficult to open/close. The makers of the software of course should consider this when placing these links. You tube is the most often case. Otherwise the Note 8 would be 5 stars in all catagories. I am looking forward to this phone lasting years to come and what the future holds from Samsung and to them I say Bravo!

    EULA too open

    I don’t use most of the extra features of this phone because the permissions for the EULA are far too much. In this day and age, how can we trust a company with every bit of our personal information when we give them permission to use it as THEY see fit? I won’t agree to EULA so much of the Samsung software doesn’t work.

    The best

    Yes, I think that I have the best phone with the note 8! I really like it! I won this phone because I didn’t have the money to buy it. For the next note, you should work on the price a bit.
    Otherwise, the finger scan is not at a good place; it was great when the phone had the fingerprint scanner on the front!
    Bixby is not offered yet in French canadian so I use a lot Google recognition voice and not Bixby. The Bixby button is also unnecessary from my view since we can slide on the left to access Bixby. I would have like to use Bixby and it’s looking very powerfull but not in my language.

    I don’t use a lot the two lens for photo but the front lens could be better. The idea of two speakers that is used on the s9 should be implemented I the next note.

    The always on display could be better with a larger choice of kind of display and also not only the little square.

    For the VR headset: it could be great to have a samsung switch to access the Google VR app and all the content. So the user could have the access to samsung and Google product.

    Really not happy about the quality of the video for the gear 360. Xiaomi and go pro are doing far more better 360 cam So, I’m very disappointed to have put all that money on the gear 360.

    I’m very critic here but remind that I think that the note 8 is the best phone even today after many other company phone release.

    It’s a little too easy to accidentally “pocket dial ” and a little tricky to try and bring up the screen to disconnect the call. The asleep screen is a little too easy to wake up when you don’t it to. Other than that, I am in love with how many features there are and how easy it is to use them. It is easy and fun to personalise to every type of person. The size is perfect, the full screen is practical and enjoyable. The swipe keyboard makes texting a breeze. I honestly didn’t think I would switch teams but now I’ll never go back. This phone is way too practical and easy and fun to personalize.

    I came from an S7 and jumped at the offer from Freedom Mobile. The hardware is top notch and the software is great as well, (I just wish there was a night mode). Bixby needs some work but, for being a new assistant I can’t really say anything bad other than being able to re map the button. The S Pen is a nice little feature, I use it mainly to copy and paste from within messages and use it for smart select as well.

    Upgraded from a Note 3. One feature I miss is the delay email send option. It allow a 5-10 seconds delay before sending the emails. This allow you to make a last minute change if necessary. The new Note 8 doesn’t have that. Hopefully in future software updates it will be reinstalled. Otherwise excellent phone.

    I love everything about this phone except for the rounded screen edges. It does not allow for a heavy duty protective case like I normally like to have and I am constantly worried about damaging the screen. The glass screen protectors do work but can get expensive to replace often. Also the S Pen can get a little buggy on occasion (may need replacing) but is an otherwise awesome feature. Still the best phone I have ever owned and that is coming from an (ex) iPhone loyalist.

    I use my Note 8 for work on a daily basis, even days I am not at work. Using its full capabilities to be able to email and attach documents, create notes and plan meetings, my Note * is key to my daily work life.

    At home, I use my Note 8 as my gaming device of choice. I find myself passing time with simple games and news apps that keep me informed and relaxed. But I am most happy when I get to use it to game. My Note 8 is my workhorse as I daily keep up with my guild and clan responsibilities with raiding and warring on the various games I have.

    I love my Note 8 and look forward to when I can upgrade to the next NOte device that comes out.

    Thanks NOte team for this phone!

    Complete Package

    The current generation Note 8 offers a nice mixture of performance, battery life and features with a very usable large screen. The device is easier to handle then previous models, especially when used with one hand. With moderate usage the battery lasts well over a day and has never been an issue in the 6 months so far. The edged screen is something you can get used to and I personally thought unnecessary untill I used a non edged phone and thought something was missing in my field of few. Overall it has not had any crashes or other oddities in the past 6 months. Things that bother me about the Note 8 would be that the speaker is located in an awkward position and the camera zoom is ok but would love a wide view angle in future applications. Would highly recommend, keep it up Samsung!

My friend has a Google pixel 2 which is another great phone but whenever we are in a spot with poor Wi-Fi my phone has no problem getting good connection where his struggles.

    This is my second Note product and I am very happy with it. Good size, loads of features, powerful and very customizable.
    My two main complaints are:
    1. The battery could last longer. This is a large, high performance computer. Make the battery a bit larger and it would last longer.
    2. There is too much bloatware installed from the factory. I understand why it is put on there but at least let me uninstall ALL of it. I can uninstall some but others can only be disabled or not even that.

    Best phone in the market

    I am a Samsung person. I have owned the galaxy S3, S4, Note3, Note 4, Note 5, Note 7, S7 Edge, S8 and Note 8. I keep coming back because of the increased speed, versatility, screen, cameras and general usability.

    The Note 8 was a welcome addition as I was an early adopter of the Note 7 and did not want to let it go. I had as a replacement, the S7 Edge and filled by the S8 as a work phone. Though I still enjoyed the phones, I missed the pen. I utilize the pen on a daily basis for signing documents, doing crosswords and taking notes.

    Samsung Dex – I use the dock on a daily basis and am starting to use it more for work than my provided laptop. I love the simplicity of design lack of clunky click throughs. The adoption of larger screens through Microsoft and Citrix make the work functionality actually faster than my internal network for performance. I also use Dex with my S8 and have noticed that v the processing power can be limited but I have yet to experience the same with the Note 8,likely due to its increased processing speed. One thing I’ve noticed is the lack of functionality of Bixby while in Dex mode, I find this quite surprising due to them both being stock products from Samsung. Additionally I would like a headphone jack on the dock as how to deal with sounds with the dock is an after thought.

    One negative with the design of the phone is the glass back if you want to use the phone without a case S’s it is slippery and you feel like you’re holding a ming vase and it’s not a question of if but when you’re going to drop it.

    Overall this is the most functional phone on the market. The best thing about these phones is the ability to add external storage without compromising waterproofing.

    The camera functionality in this phone is fantastic, pure and simple. The side window menu is super helpful when you remember it’s there. Face recognition needs alot of work. When you want it to work it simply won’t and then works when you’re halfway through entering a password, sick with fingerprint entrance if you want reliable quick access.

    Overall, best phone you can buy if you want one phone to do it all!

    Please bring back removable batteries

    For those of us who utilize our phone a lot during the day (e.g. taking notes in meetings) the battery can be insufficient for continuous use. With my Note 2 and Note 3, I invested in a charging cradle that included a charging port for an extra battery and then rotated between three batteries- one on charge, one in use in my phone and one kept in my pocket to swap into my phone as needed.
    A non replaceable battery denies me this capability

    I had the Note 5 for a few years before I bought the Note 8. It was a great choice. The battery lasts for ever, the features on this phone are awesome, picture is best I have ever seen, and it has a ton of built in free features. All I hear from my friends that have I-phones are issues on top of issues. None of those with this phone. This Note 8 rocks. I’m staying right here with Samsung.

    Note 8 awesome but not perfect

    The Note 8 offers an amazing user experience both as a smartphone and home computer coupled with the Samsung Dex. The S Pen brings some great features such as screen right and on screen notes. Amazing display however sound quality locks with the single mono speaker a phone of this caliber should have dual stereo speakers.
    Amazing except in low light or highlight areas battery life is okay can usually get through most of the day before needing a charge

    This is the greatest phone I’ve ever owned. Although it cost a lot, I use it all day everyday and it is by far the best.

    Note 8 review

    This phone is really good. The 2 things I would of changed are, 1. Go back to having an ir blaster on it, I miss the days of using my note to control tv and such. 2. The pen slot, I use my note for work as a truckdriver and the pen ejected and I’ve lost it 2x , currently I figure out my old note pen fits and I’m using that now.

    The screen can be used in full sunlight.
    The phone never needs a reboot.
    It’s well worth then money and probably will be full 5 star to anyone that d oklnt need ir blaster and is more careful then me with the pen eject 😉

    So far so good

    Display is incredible. Speed/ performance is amazing. When researching for a new phone battery life was mentioned as a potential weakness with the note 8. Havent had any issues with that myself, and Im a relatively heavy user. Speakers could be louder. Also I havent owned a smartphone yet that I would be comfortable dropping this one included. I guess durability could be improved. Overall im impressed. It could be awhile before I upgrade again.

    Who needs a tablet?

    I was looking into getting an all-in-one tablet for work, because I felt that in this age of technology, a book full of paper was wasteful and unnecessary. I also couldn’t password protect a book containing sensitive information. I have had the Note 8 since it was released in October, and since then, I haven’t thought about a tablet at all. I had the Note 3 before, so some features were similar but much better. The main feature that has myself, as well as coworkers impressed, is when I need to take a note, all I do is pull out my Note 8, remove the S-Pen, and write directly on the lock screen, as though I have a very large sticky note and pen in my pocket at all times. Beyond that, I love the combination of water resistance and the dual cameras. When I can’t take my large camera out due to heavy rain, the Note 8 has been an amazing photographic tool and I don’t have to worry about it being damaged. I have created a few of my best photos with the phone. The Note 8 has been exceptional when using it for work, as well as play. Video streaming services look excellent on the large screen, and games look great and work smoothly with the processor. I have never found myself wishing for more processing power. Using spreadsheet or document apps have been easy with the large screen. I would definitely recommend the Note 8 to anyone interested in a phone that is both business tool, and everyday-life multi tool. It is an exceptional phone.

    No need to look for a pen and paper. The note feature helps keep track of your thoughts and important information which is
    easily organized.

    Best Android phone is the world. That’s sums it up

    Everything on the Note8 is top-notch. Except battery life – though understandable with what happened before.

    All features combine to make this the best android phone on the market.

    A worthy successor to the note series.

    Although the differences between the Note 8 and the S8 are not night and day, the subtle differences make the phone very special.
    First things first, the stylus is back and better than ever. As a productivity tool nothing bests the note series simply because of this. The new commands, improves responsiveness, and upgraded feel of the stylus are a welcome haven for those missing the note 7 and hanging onto the 4 or 5 looking for a sign from up above.
    Secondly, the camera is outstanding. Although I must admit I would like to see fiber control of the shutter and iso (I know know you can change the limits Samsung, 10 seconds is not long enough) the photos still look amazing. Small complaint being the portrait mode, which is usually worse than Google’s software created portrait shots. However, you can get the Google camera ported on the note so… You have both options, plus I’m sure they will iron this out in the future.
    As for the device itself, it had outstanding battery life (2 days for me), great and accurate GPS, and a screen that puts the I phone x to shame. The rounded but still slightly square design of the screen is much better than that of the s seriesi find because it gives you much more workable space and doesn’t trim apps/videos as much.

    Good screen size, easy to operate with one hand

    I love the notes. Ive had note 1, 3 and 5 in the past and each one surpasses the previous one. I really enjoy the multi task window feature. You can watch youtube and send an email or surf the web at the same time. Its nice to hold, its not akward to hold in one hand and the finishing touches are great. Does not feel cheap at all

    Love the camera!

    I got rid of my expensive camera because it was too bulky for travelling. (Airline carry on restrictions are getting ridiculous on some airlines). The camera on the Note8 is great. Went to Antelope canyon where they recommend good cameras to get the great shots. I got the great shots with the Note8. Also works good as a phone.

    good top line hand set

    after 6 months of ownership 2 things:
    the ‘bixby’ key should be re-programmable
    the stock samsung text message app no longer vibrates or makes noise when a new text arrives. it did for the first month or so, now kaput. the same thing happened with my note 3 too……

    small screen crack appeared the first week. not too happy.

    the waterproof-ness is good. i’ve spilled drinks on it 5 or 6 times and I just wipe the liquid off without worrying about it affecting the handset performance.

    Stereo speakers would be nice…

    including one adapter from usb-a to usb-c was nice, but for this price why not 2 or 3? what do they cost, 5 cents?

    The Best Samsung Device I Have Used

    I have always had a Samsung phone since the start of the smartphone race. I have never been disappointed by my S2, S5 and now my Note8. The note 8 has blown my exectations out of the water and has made me very proud to brag to my friends and family about it. My only downside is that my carrier does not sell phones so I had to go through Samsung directly to buy it out right for a very high price, which is no fault to samsung. But as time has gone on I truly believe it was worth the money as I am still learning about using the phone and I am still impressed 6 months later.

    Great phone, but with some flaws

    This phone is great. I’ve been waiting a long time for the new Note to come out since the last one had issues. Now that i’ve had this phone for a while, I noticed that there are some flaws, one of which is that it is laggy. When I had the iPhone, it did not lag and was very fast. This phone takes long to start up and it does lag after having it for a few months (6+ months). I don’t like when it lags or when it’s slow to start up. They need to fix that because that is the biggest problems with Androids.

    Great phone, needs some bugs ironed out.

    Love my note 8. Recently made the switch after being an iPhone guy for years. With that said, there are some bugs in the programming that disappoint me. Sometimes the phone does some wonky things. Most of the bugs show up while using the phone for actual phone calls. Sometimes it will glitch out while I’m talking to someone and the “in call” menu just disappears. No way to hang up from the call or access mute and speaker phone features. Someone is still on the line but the phone acts like I’m not on a call, as far as the on screen menus go. Overall a great phone but they need to get the programming cleaned up.

    Worst phone I’ve ever owned and cheapest quality

    I’ve had 2 now that have broken glass. I’ve had the glass screen protectors on both 1 in a oem factory case from Samsung and one in a otter box. I have a desk job and treat these phones like gold. This phone is absolute garbage and it’s made with the worst materials. Not even that tho they video quality sucks when u send it to any device. The picture quality same thing. Don’t buy this phone. You will be throwing you’re money away

    Great replacement for my Galaxy S6!

    The best phone I ever had has to be my Galaxy S6 and this Note 8 is a worthy successor. Everything about it is improved, except the poor fingerprint sensor placement… Really, what were you thinking? Now fixed on the S9 but it should have been fixed on the Note 8. I only use it for specific apps for that reason.

    Another miss: the speakerphone is not loud enough. Also fixed on the S9.

    Bixby is as useless as a VHS player. It does not speak my language and I doubt I will ever use it even if it does.

    This phone has it all : stylus, dual-camera, waterproof, headphone jack, 6gb memory, memory expansion slot, wireless charging. That is why I chose it.

    My main issue though has nothing to do with the phone: Samsung needs to improve on the delivery of updates. We will likely get Oreo in April; by then Android P will be released. That is just pitiful.

    Honestly, if you need a good all around device. This is it. I don’t have any complaints other than perhaps the use if Bixby, but it’s new and I expect it to be a project in the works. Size is great, it’s fast, responsive and even pretty rugged as I have dropped it a few times and as of now not even gotten a scratch on it.

    Best Note Device Yet

    Overall an amazing device. It’s such a pleasure uncovering and discovering all the features the phone has to offer. Battery life outlast any model iPhone so I am very happy but I have had past note devices with better battery life. Bixby is great once you use it and the screen has me lost for words. I rather watch movies on my Note rather than my TV because of how amazingly sharp and vivid the display is. Looking forward in seeing what Note9 has to offer.

    Great phone but don’t like the curved screen

    The Note 8 is my 3rd Note phone. Note 3, Note 7, and Now note 8.
    I think I prefered the Note 7 overall and don’t see a huge improvement between the 7 and the 8.

    I miss the IR sender that was in my Note 3 which allowed me to control television, stereo, camera, etc.

    I like that it keeps the headphone jack!!! I do not want expensive wireless headphones for most of my uses.

    I love the screen quality and brightness, but the edge panels are a gimmick in my opinion that make the phone more difficult to protect in a case and make screen protectors more difficult to install and easier to break. My wife broke the screen on her s8 way too easily, and my Note 8 screen protectors only last a few weeks… The flat screens lasted way longer.

    Having had a previous Note, I was impressed with the upgrades.

    I do like the display and the ability to adjust to my desires.

    I think Bixby is a bit of a gimmick – perhaps I have not learned to use it well.

    Overall it is impressive and a good product.

    The only con i have woth the note 8 is that it is very delicate. I have purchased the samsung flip cover ( with the transparent cover) and had it on sinve day 1…the phone still managed to get bruised a little on top…

    Other than that, i only have good things to say about that phone! That S pen! Wow 🙂

Its still a great product and I hope the Note 10 or whatever they call it will be even better.

    Great to use a Note again, but…

    Screen cracked. Did not drop it or sit on it. Best protection money can buy – Otter Box and screen protect.
    This is too high end a smart phone for this to happen!
    Love the multi-app feature.
    I have large hands so size is OK. But perhaps too large for small hands.
    Cannot connect to Desktop Dock with Otter Box protector.

    Screen size is great, software and design issues are a challenge

    Like most Note8 reviews, great device, neat featureset, innovative stylus functionality but design issues of fingerprint reader location (addressed in 9’s presumably) and continued Android instability and/or quirkiness can be a time waster.

    Note 8, The Best Accessible Phone for Creatives

    The note 8 with its built in spen makes it the best phone around for creative individuals like myself. Its large screen makes for comfortable drawing and the spen is of proffesional quality which is a must. I would not buy another phone without a stylus and I look forward to buying another note device in the far future.

    The only real cons when it comes to the note 8 is it software features which have some inconviences. For instance, the multi task feature is only offically compatible with some apps even though you can force most apps to work with it anyways. But these unsupported apps do not show up in your multitask app list, so you have to take the time to find the app on your home screen instead. It gets very tedious after awhile and there are more note 8 features like this one that could be made more convenient without combersome workarounds.

    All in all the note 8 is a fabulous phone and I would recommend it to anyone.

The phone has so many incredible features and amazing hardware that I will never not use a Note again! No other phone can do all of the things this phone can and it is well worth the money to get one!

    I expected more

    Pretty disappointed in the phone as a Note flagship. From S series to Note there had always been more distinct differences. Now it just feels like the same phone but a different variation with an SPen.

    My biggest disappointed was an update that came out for the S8 and stuck around for the Note 8. With Pop Up Windows and their Multi Tasking Ability.

    In the past I could Watch Netflix or play an Idle Clicker Game while messaging or surfing the web. The update that was forced on us disabled background apps with pop ups unless they are now supported (which most arent).

    When inquiring about this with Samsung I was informed it was for performance issues.

    So I assumed when the Note 8 came out and they jumped from 4 to 6 GB of RAM with an upgraded processor, there would be at least an option to enable it.

    I was wrong.

    Pretty disappointed as I never had an issue before.

    I find the hardware an improvement, it is fats and fingerprint and other technology are useful enhancement that work reliably. Most of the software is inferior in features and user friendliness to the software on the Old Note 2. Most particularly the email and contact app’s. I also do not like being forced to install updates, on the old phone it was optional, the updates sometimes cause instability.

    Samsung Note 8 is my best mobile device among the other brands not only on its appearance but also the excellent performance. My husband is a Iphone user who recommended me to try another brands. I tried to use his Iphone ; however, it is totally not my cup of tea. The quality shows on taking video and pictures are undeniable. Even though some people said the colors and images show on Samsung phone are too bright and not like the true color as Iphone does, the overall testing on Note 8 camera is still ranking on the top.
    S Pen is an unique design just for Note series. My daughter loves to use the pen to draw and color, it is unexpected to discover this additional benefits to enhance her creativity while playing with my phone.

    Ultimate handset for mobile productivity

    The Note8 is my go-to for on the move productivity. Having access to a full suite of programs that I use for my business is key as my work day sometimes keeps me from my desktop.

    Social media marketing (IG) is an integral part of my business and the camera on the device is bar none one of the best I have ever used on a handheld device. The images and videos captured natively on the phone allow me to save time on post production.

    The phone is powerful, sleek, durable and can last the whole day.

I upgraded from a note 4 (Which I loved) and the Note 8 was the only phone that seemed like an upgrade. My wife loves the features on my phone but not the size, so now shes looking into getting the s9. There is a lot of features that make it more user friendly than my Note 4. If you like big phones with a lot of features, this is the phone for you.

    Great phone

    I’ve had the note series since the beginning. I still think the note 3 was the best one. With expandable memory and replaceable battery. That being said the note 8 had a better camera and more up to date features. This is a great phone and it works awesome with the gear VR

    Good phone, but Bixby needs a lot of work

    Note 8 is a good phone, but Bixby not so good. Nowhere as good as Siri. Had to turn it off, as simply useless in recognizing voice commands.
    Also speaker not very good either.

    Samsung Note 8 – The Beast – King of smart phones

    When I got this phone I was so excited to have one of the top raking phones in the world. However this device do crash, freeze, and slow down from time to time which I did not expect from a phone of this high end range.

    The knox software also has some bugs that interferes with the apps within it. The apps opened from Knox would freeze the phone and the only way to come out of this is the clear all apps and restart.

    Using Spen is a skill and if you don’t really know the features well Spen could go all rusty inside the phone without any use. ( you did not buy note to just scribble wih the Spen.

    I still love many features of Note and will continue to be a fan of Samsung products. Hopefully Note 9 comes with strong built software and some usefull features like complete waterproof and facial recognition and ofcourse with more gigs and juice.

    Good phone not great

    My opinion is a flagship phone should be far superior to its standard models. There seems to be a trend and this will most likely be the last Samsung Note I purchase. For lack of better words, just no bang for the buck. Also when trying to submit the review it says my email is not a valid format which it is.

    All you will ever need in a smartphone

    This Note 8 is by far the best phone Ive ever owned. I love everything about it. The looks, performance, the lovely high res display, the dual camera with image stabilization and of course the s pen.

    Need a computer on the go!? This phone is for you!

    I have been a Note user for many years, and every time I get a new one I always push the limits even further than the last. The Note 8 has kept up with my desire to be creativity and continues to amaze me, my family, friends, and peers. Whatever your need might be the Note 8 can handle it. I use the Note 8 for art work, creating poster/flyers, video recording and editing, managing my social media accounts for business, taking notes, reworking/creating documents, gaming ….the list goes on and it NEVER slows down. I truly believe it would be hard to find anyone who uses the Note 8 as much as I do. I rarely ever have to use my PC! With video editing an artwork the S Pen becomes an essential tool to help with those intricate areas of detail. Do you need to take down a phone number or take a quick message? The Note 8 has got you covered! Pull out the S Pen and just start writing on the screen; it is just that easy. Take great looking pictures with ease with the simple interface and high resolution of the duel camera lenses. Clean and crisp videos make it a great tool for YouTube videos/ vlogs. The beautiful Infinity display is perfect for viewing movies, and pictures; it takes your social media experience to the next level cause you can see pictures and news feeds easily without stretching the screen; you will not miss a thing with the size of this display. The phone is expensive but if you know what you are gonna be getting out of it the price will not affect you at all. The power of this phone truly makes up for it; you wont regret it!

    Bell bloatware hurts the use experience..keyboards is a nightmare

    i wish I had bought my phone directly from Samsung and not through Bell.
    the overall configuration feels quite intrusive of my privacy
    the Keyboard is a nightmare…. I write in 3 different languages and I find myself constantly rewriting everything because I started off typing in the wrong language…. your predictive key corrector should be aware of this and automatically fix it

    I rather go back to my Note3…sniff

    Make it easier to edit notes

    The Note8 is a great phone, but I feel that taking and especially editing notes is more complex than necessary. The Notes app should be like a notebook. We should be able to open it and “flip” through pages, which shortcuts such as “create new” on top.

    I have changed the animations to 0.5x under developer options, I think this should be the default speed. The phone feels faster now.

    Overall I like the phone but the fact that Notes and Samsung Notes don’t sync is a big problem for me.
    I also dislike the placement of the Bixby button and the fingerprint scanner..Samsung definately could have done better on those items..

    BEST PHONE IVE EVER OWNED

    This phone is truly amazing and I havent had an issue with it yet, the only complaint I have is when I want to increase volume it has a warning message you have to access your phone to click ok so you can max the volume. This is inconvenient when I connect to a bluetooth car speaker and I have to takeout my phone to increase volume past warning message. Please get rid of that useless warning. Otherwise I love everything about my Note 8. Thank you Samsung

    Switching from HTC M10 to Samsung N8, hands down the best phone out there on the market. The S pen is smooth and very useful for day to day business. I can do everything from my N8, carrying my heavy laptop isn’t a requirement anymore.

    I would love to give the Gear Icon X wireless Bluetooth headphones a shot. The low profile and unique design has me very interested.

    Let’s make changes for the sake of changes

    I love the note line. This is my 4th Samsung note. That said, there are a few things that have been changed that were never a problem.
    -I miss the physical home button.
    – there was no need for a “Bixby” (I’ve used Google voice for a while and it works) I wish the Bixby button could be re-assigned to another task.

    -I’m getting used to the rear fingerprint scanner, but it was an awkward position at first. So much so that I went back to using pattern. With the pattern lock it took 3 steps to get into the phone – home button/swipe/pattern – ANNOYING! When I realized the fingerprint scan was 1 step, I gave it another go and am getting used to it.

    – I like the always on display and the screen write. Some improvement in the stylus features and integration are great.

    – Battery life is awesome and internet connection speeds are impressive.

    Lots of Great Things but still rough around the edges

    My first phone away from the Apple ecosystem and it’s quite impressive. It does fall short in voice command and lack of a solid music player.

    Configuration options are wonderful and there are a lot of great features, but volume limiting (and resetting the levels all the time) make it very frustrating to use with my Bluetooth headset (my headset controls volume so requires line level output from the device to play at reasonable volumes, having to constantly re bump up the volume makes using it an exercise in futility)

    Note 8 is fast and works great

    I have been a iphone user for years, switch over to samsung with a note 3, then had a note 4 followed by a S6 and now a note 8. Let me tell you, every time I switch phones i tell my self, This is the best one yet, but every time I tell my self, they can’t top this phone and everytime they come out with a new model they suprise me again.

    The best phone I have ever had the pleasure to own.

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may come at a steep price however if you are willing to spend a little extra cash to get the best phone on the market I would not hesitate. The phone comes packed to the brim full of top-of-the-line specs, Materials, and features. I absolutely love the look, feel, and size of the phone. Many people haven’t been a huge fan on the placement of the fingerprint sensor but I would beg to differ I personally have big hands and the phone fits perfectly, the fingerprint sensor couldn’t be in a better place. Another huge reason you should buy this phone is because of the S Pen and lots of reviews on this phone suggested that many people may not use it however for me the S Pen is a daily use and an advantage. It is great for editing, and over all enhancing the use of your phone. But a phone with all these great features must have a con and for me it has to be the S Pen. It’s overall perfect however the S pen falls out easily. I had an unfortunate experience where I had dropped my phone out of my vehicle and it wasn’t until I got home that I noticed my S Pen was gone. I am aware that the phone notifies you when you are too far away from your pen however I put my phone back in my pocket and didn’t notice until I got home. But nonetheless this phone has been my favorite experience throughout all of the previous devices I’ve had. If you are looking for a phone that brings everything to the table the Note 8 is for you.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my novel on the Note8.

    Great phone, only drawback is the case, it is too smooth and slippery. I have had it slip and fall to the floor several times even on a surface with only a slight incline. DO NOT turn on any vibrate, it will slide for sure. It even slid out of the wireless charger a couple of times.

    Great Start

    I would appreciate a stock android experience from Samsung. I find TouchWiz does not translate well with what North Americans are looking for in a smart phone. Bixby is dead on arrival. Please put it out of its mystery. Leave the voice assistant to google please. You build beautiful phones but the software is a miss for what today’s customer is looking for.

    I pre-ordered this note 8 and bought it outright. My previous phone was a note 3, so taking in all the upgrades and new features is overwhelming. Overall this phone works great, fast and lots of storage capability. Only down side is that this phone is a little heavy and tall to leave in a pockect. Im still taking my time learning what this phone can do but i would recomend it to anyone into there phones.

    The perfect phone

    Absolutely the best phone.

    If your a note user this phone is a huge upgrade and if your new to this device line your gonna love it because of the functionality of this specific phone that stands out from the rest. The stylus is exclusive to the Note lineup and users of it will be hard pressed to give it up. It comes with 6gb of ram, so it’s excellent for multitasking and great for performance.

    The only cons are purely subjective and based on the user. So it is quite expensive for the average consumer but it is well worth its price for its excellent build quality, display, and the great Samsung Galaxy Experience perks which cannot be found anywhere else. So if you have smaller than average hands you may have issues with its size but I, personally, love the size and think it’s perfect for its functionality (who wants a stylus with 5 inches of useful space). Highly recommend you try this great device!!

The cost was definitely steep but I hope to get some high mileage out of this phone!

    Note 4 eMMC failed so I got this

    I loved my Note 4 and was not going to upgrade to the Note 8. Samsung would not sell me a replacement motherboard for my Note 4, so I thought about switching lines while I used my old Note 1 as a backup. In the end, I chose the Note 8 over the LG V30 and the Pixel 2 XL because of everything that this phone can do. I was definitely considering jumping ship because of what happened to my Note 4, but I am glad I stuck with the Note line. Just wish that I could replace the battery myself when the time comes.

    The Samsung Android Ecosystem

    One of the most infuriating things about being a Note 8 owner is the android software release cycle. Having to wait 10-12 months for Android O is maddening. To be frank the only reason Im using a Note 8 is because of the Pixel 2 XLs poor screen. Had their quality control been better I would have gone that direction.

    Samsung would be better of embracing Android Assistant instead of Bixby. The last thing Android needs is more fragmentation. Having Samsung and Google work together on a common AI would be beneficial for consumers

    This phone has lots of cool things going for it but…

    I like all the things this phone can do and its big and bright display. I have no complaints of how it performs. What I didn’t like was the ergonomics the corners of the phone are not as comfortable as my galaxy 7. I also missed the home button and finger scanner in one. It made logging in much easier. The finger scaner on the back is in a bad spot. I noticed that they tried correcting some of these issues on the note 9 so I kinda wish I held out for it instead.

    I love having the added features of the stylus and am very glad I held off from buying a new phone until the Note 8 was available. The screen size is exactly what I was hoping for and I am impressed by the picture quality. I love the multi-tasking with the split-screen feature. Everything I used to do on my computer I can now do from my phone. I am sure it has some limitations, but I have yet to find them. With so many cool features, it is well worth the time going thru Youtube videos to find out how to maximize this phone.

    Beautiful Phone

    This is a beautiful phone. I really love my phone, but there is still room for improvement.

    For one thing, I wish Samsung would update my software to Android Oreo. Currently I am on Nougget.

    Another thing is that Bixby does strange things. When I try to wake Bixby up by saying Hey Bixby on high sensitively settings it does not work. Sometimes even pressing the Bixby button does not even work. Then there is other times where Bixby thinks I am trying to say things and I am not and I have turned down the sensitively settings to the lowest setting. Good thing I have the option to still say OK Google when I really need it. Google Assisstant work great on my phone.

    Also, my S Pen some times gives off this burning smell when I take it out of the phone. Is that normal? I have never had a Note phone before so I am not sure if that smell is normal. It does not feel hot or anything, but it has this electronic burning smell especially close to the button part of the S Pen.

    The last thing I wanted to mention on the software side of things is that I wish I could set the Always on Display to be only showing during certain days of the week and not just certain times. I use my always on display for when I am working in the office, but I do not need it for when I am at home on the weekends or holidays.

    Those are the things that bother me enough to notice to mention it.

    First Cell Phone

    This is my first cell phone an to be honest I bought it for the camera. I use to shoot with a DSLR and go pro then edit everything on my desktop. The Note 8 allows me to do it all on one device. You can see the results on my YouTube channel by searching “fireside4ever”. I agonized over which phone to buy and I could not be more please we the decison to get the Note 8.

    Best phone I have had

    Great phone over all. Excellent features although some design flaws. The screen is beautiful but the curved style allows for few compatible screen protectors. Most severely reduce touch sensitivity and cause the phone to be almost unusable. The one brand who has a compatible Protector that uses uv gel and led light to adhere has awesome touch sensitivity but their product is trash I’m the end because it did nothing to protect my screen. That being said the screen is so fragile I have had cracked glass, with the protector on, from a month after I got the device. The lcd remains intact though thankfully, and the phone is still completely usable, so I haven’t bothered to have it fixed. Very expensive although excellent, I only wish I head out for the s9 for the most advanced features and all that extra storage. Prior to this I had a pixel XL first edition, and prior to that a note 5.

    So far this has been the most superior device I’ve used in performance and image quality (capture and screen)

    My first non-Blackberry phone

    Love it but do wish it was a little wider. It would be easier to hold and type on if it was just a little wider.

    Overall I am extremely happy with this phone – the camera is excellent, the performance is lag free, and the screen is best in market. I could wish for a larger battery, but the charge rate does help to make up for the lack. This phone is very expensive.

    I think as a flagship, top of the line Cell Phone, camera, pocket computer.
    Samsung should be the first to have the latest operating system.

    Stuck with a lemon

    Brand new phone bought end of 2017. Already send out for repair to get the board replaced 3 weeks after buying. Since then it hasn’t stopped freezing. Often stuck and doesn’t restart or reboot.

    Great personal divice

    So far the experience with my Galaxy Note 8 has been fantastic. I only had one hiccup when I first got it and the touch screen features for some of the applications we’re not working. I took it back to my provider and received a new phone and this one has been working like a charm. It is a big phone but it has replaced all my computer time so the big screen is worth its size. For myself this has really helped me with my multiple social media accounts. This has been my first time using a note styled phone with a stylus pen and I am really liking the additional features it provides. I’m hooked for life.

    I love my new Note8. I had the Note7 and would have kept it (Neither of mine ever got hot). The dual cameras on the Note8 are fabulous and I love having the S Pen back and the Off Screen Memo writing.

    Glad I switched from iOS.

    I had been an iPhone user from 2008 to 2017. I was worried the switch would be too difficult. Honestly it sucked for about a week, everything’s a little different. I even thought at one point that I would have to return the Note 8 and go back to iPhone. So glad I did not. After the initial shock wore off I really got to playing around with it and it quickly turned into the Coolest gadget I had in quite a while.

    I had an original iPhone, then the 4s followed by my last new iOS product ever, the 6s. When I got the Note 8 everything felt new a day fun again.

    I could go on and on but I won’t. I’ll just saying there’s not 1 thing I am left wanting after switching. Being able to use emulators alone is worth it. I’m playing freaking original NES games I hadnt seen since I was a kid.

    Best Note So far

    I was suppose to buy Note 7 but I didn’t get a chance and my Note 4 was dying so I had to get Note 5 as I like using the pen and get see any other phones fit me more than the Note series so I was so happy with The Note 8 if I will complain I would complain about the price tag unlocked or in a contract both of them seems to be expensive. I also wanted to have the bright colors but unfortunately there wasn’t . So I hope the next versions have more bright colors and also available in most of the providers.

    The phone is loaded with features has bright display great s-pen, able to edit PDF docs, great for business use, speefy but definitely lacks battery life if you are high end user, finding myself charging half way through the day, however it is still a must recommend.

    Design package options

    There are only two things that are a problem design for me. The Note series was a working person phone. The round curved screen means very little to me and my work issues. I always cover with a Otter Box for ultimate protection thus no need for the curved screen. The size of the Note 4 was perfect. Larger keyboard for my big fingers/ thumbs was the best. This slim design does not offer function in the keyboard. Optional design features would be great. Love the stylus pen and software. Again great for construction purposes!

    Nice phone but

    Very good all round but disapointed that you can not chrome cast with it. Stylus not as good or reactive as the Note 4 also difficult to remove from the unit. Sound not very loud even on full setting. Love the earpieces that come with it and the data transfer key is a great feature.
    Everything else is as you would expect from a Samsung product.

    Expensive phone that need to be handled carefully

    The screen cracked after the first fall. I have some difficulty texting while holding the phone because it detect your hand on the side and start writing giberish. Could be a great phone but his lack of resistance and his design make it less attractive.

    great phone, s pen needs improvement

    I really enjoy using the note8. Although it’s a bit too big to carry in jeans/sweater pockets; it’s great for watching videos. Face recognition was very convenient for me. It’s probably underused since there are so many features and I only use the common ones. I like how there are so many settings and changes I can do with regards to the fonts, the buttons, the display and basically anything I want change on my display I can adjust.

    The only complain I had was the S pen comes off too easily. Had to buy a replacement with in the first month. I am very careful with it now so I notice it’s pops out itself quite often.

    I’ve had the Note 8 for a few months now, I’ve had pretty much no complaints about it so far, besides the camera. It’s an awesome lens that takes excellent picture, but I was a little disappointed with the camera stabilizer (if there is even one) since that’s one of the biggest features why I’ve purchased this phone. Overall great phone though, Will definitely recommend!

    The best phone on the market until the note 9

    The note series of samsung galaxy devices has been literally the best phones that i have ever had. I first started with the note 2 straight from my iphone 5 and i never have used any other phone as my primary phone. Ive had the note 2, note 3, note 4, note 5, and now the note 8. I work for a mobility service company and this phone has always been the first phone i sell to people looking for the best of the best android device, even people looking for something better than their iphone haha. Love this device and will always be a note fan. P.s. if samsung wants to send me a dex unit I would love to demo it to my clients!

    Love the display size, however this comes with a cost of no mpre single handed texting. The phone is heavy and has to be held with two hands. If you have shorter fingers, it’s very difficult to text or type in general.
    My pen is already broken and I’m not a big user of the pen at all. Not quite sure how it happened.
    Overall it is a great phone.

    Device is as good as s8 or s8 plus.
    One drawback is screen is not very protector or case friendly due to curve.
    Speakers sucks.

    BIXBY is good.
    And its not VR friendly i found out later.

    For the price i was expecting little better then s8plus. But its almost same.

    Not the phone I had hoped…

    I was very excited to move from iPhone to Android, and made my choice after a lot of research and careful deliberation. The Note 8 seemed to be the phone that would meet my fairly exacting needs. It claimed to be high powered, exceptional camera, and on par with the top iPhone.
    The reality of the Note 8 is different. It is a beautiful looking phone. It does a ton of things an iPhone simply can not, like true multi tasking, additional storage, and the stylus, which is an amazing feature. However, I have had this phone for less than 6 months, and the lag is almost unbearable. It randomly switches apps while I’m in the middle.of doing things. The camera is pathetic, it takes unfocused pictures and those that are focused aren’t as crisp as I would expect from a flagship phone. And the battery life is appalling, I have to plug it in by the time I get to work most days as.its hovering around 60.
    I want to love this phone. I am stuck with it for 3 years. But the day to day performance is so shockingly below what I expected that I would not recommend it to anyone who is an avid phone user. It looks great, but can’t manage all the tasks it has the ability to complete.

    Samsung Messages! SEE WHEN TYPING AND VIEWED

    I love Samsung Messages! You get to see when someone is typing and when someone has viewed your message. Keep in mind, this feature only works through Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and Note 8 (at least that I know of). I’d love to have a easy founctioning button where you could send GIFS through your messages. I also have concerns that I will break my Not 8 because it ALWAYS takes hard falls, but it’s still going like new. No need to worry there. Maybe something that could improve the phone would, once you hold a the screen you’d be able to see a magnifying glass to see where yout curser is. And maybe some changes to the keyboard. I do have big thumbs, but I can type easier on other phones. With my Note 8 keyboard, I always make mistakes. It is a little hard to use. But overrall, THIS PHONE IS AMAZING.

    Top device catching up on features.

    I really enjoy the device. However one of the key elements here is the camera and to be honest the camera features are not that great in every day use. I have had a Pixel 2 XL and a iPhone X, their features are just there, LiveFocus is not that great and even when it is a good feature, your own mid range devices have it now, A8+ has front camera LiveFocus, this should be the highest end phone you have out on the market! yet still on an older version of Android.
    This is a very expensive phone for what gives back. Sure has a huge gorgeous screen, but there are other phones that do as well that are as fast and that offer faster updates and give back features you want.
    Other features the phone has are just by now days basic features across most high end devices.

    Big Money but Big Features

    This is my first Note series phone but not my first Samsung. I’ve been an owner of the Galaxy series in the past and always loved the design, features etc but the Note 8 is on another level.
    The S-Pen I use daily and I thought it would be a gimmick. The speed of the phone is impressive and stock TouchWiz runs beautifully.
    The camera and displays are jaw dropping and I find myself taking more pics than I ever would have in the past.
    Although the price is high you do get what you pay for, premium, fast, sleek, future proofed product.
    If I had to knock one thing it would be the feel of the phone if not in a case. It feel like a piece of glass so you do need to protect your investment.
    If you are on the fence, buy this phone, you won’t be disappointed.

    The Note 8

    The Note 8 is a great camera. Love the many features it has. The camera has been excellent. I use the virtual reality a lot for games as well as exploring places to go and visit on vacation. I also use the 360 camera a lot. Family events as well as on our work sites in construction. We have discovered many things when reviewing the video. All and all I need this phone and use it on a daily basis.

    Battery drains way too fast. I always seem to have my eye on it.

    This phone is marketed to power users, yet the battery isn’t a power users battery. I have to charge it multiple times to get me through the day.

    Also a built in messaging app like iMessage would really be amazing.

    Dual Stereo speakers would have been great too.

    I love battery life, as opposed to iphones. The features are pretty neat such as ‘ok google’. It’s fast and efficient. I don’t understand bixby or the point of bixby to be honest. I also got a phone with a broken pixel or something, theres a line that goes straight through the center of my phone which is pretty annoying. Also, there are no screen protectors or cases for this phone that actually work. My speakers also don’t work properly. I can barely ever hear anyone and people can never hear me.

    Display is unbelievable. the definition and brightness makes the experience with this phone really great.
    I was a little wary of the size before I purchased, it feels normal in my hand and pocket now. When I see other phones and hold them they feel tiny in comparison!
    I have experienced a few freezes. This seems to be from apps freezing, otherwise the phone has performed flawlessly.
    I have been slowly integrating the use of the pen into my routine. It works well, it saves notes very easily, and is proving to be very handy. The impact to battery is minimal.

    Camera: Awesome in good lighting, not the best in low light situations

    I truly love this phone. It takes unbelievable pictures in the daylight! However, in low lit situations, the Live Focus Mode won’t work due to “shooting conditions”. A friend of mine has the iPhone 7 Plus and it’s portrait mode was so quick and clear even in the same lighting I was trying to use mine in. If this camera was as quick and clear as the 7 plus’ portrait mode I would have given the Note 8 5 stars across the board. Still a beautiful phone, but a little disappointed with the camera.

    Some improvements but some downfalls

    Overall a very good phone with a decent battery life, however there are some aspects which I am not happy with. When casting video contained in a webpage or other app that does not have the native cast feature, the audio works however no video. This is a problem with the android OS. To date no resolutions from Samsung. When you’re paying this much for a phone, the expectation is that features will not be downgraded/removed. So if you frequently use this feature, you may want to keep your old device handy.

    Love the phone and getting used to Bixby.

    The only thing I didn’t like is on noti settings you took away the tethering button. I use this often as I go to placing with no Wi-Fi. Now ever time a have to go into setting and find what a pain.

    Just don’t buy it.

    Great but

    The physical design is terrible. Having been made of glass all the way around it is much too slippery. I have a Galaxy Note 8 and my wife has the Samsung S8 and both are way too slippery they’re constantly slipping out of our hands so we had to buy a gummy case just to be able to hold them so they don’t slide out of our hands. Terrible design. Looks nice but not practical the backing should have been a textured surface of some sort like my old Note 4 which was awesome.

    And it is much too heavy. It is very tiring to hold after a while.

    For the price it should have had at least stereo speakers so it would sound better. Great with earphones or headphones but terrible on its own.

    It is technically a superior phone BUT you need to seriously work on its practicality and functionality.

    A Great Phone with Two Flaws

    This is a great phone. The screen is beautiful, the battery life is good (could be a bit better), the pen is useful, the sound is clear, the camera is amazing, and most of the features (wireless charging, waterproofing, etc.) are really convenient. It does everything well. Only two things keep me from calling it perfect.

    The first issue is that the fingerprint sensor could be in a better location. The second is that the Bixby button is awful. If you have it enabled, it will turn your phone on in your browser pocket frequently. If it is disabled, it is such a waste of an extra button that you will sometimes mix up with the volume control. And you can’t set it for any other task, which is such wasted potential and a significant disappointment.

    I love the phone but it is very slippery. I bought a case for it but now it doesn’t fit in my DEX unit. Also I bought the DEX a week ago and am very disappointed with it. It doesn’t do what I thought it would. It was pretty much a waste of money. I do love the phone.

    In General, The Best Phone I’ve Ever Had, but…

    I love my Note 8. I’ve had it for seven months now, and I have never appreciated a phone more. When it comes to multitasking, getting homework done on the go, scribbling random notes down when I don’t have a pen and paper and the like, there is no smartphone that compares.
    The only complaint I have with the Note 8 is the fact that the fingerprint reader is on the back of the phone. I know that implementing a fingerprint scanner on the front while having no home button seems almost impossible, but right now, it’s at an annoying place that is *just* out of reach. (Who knows? Maybe it’s my freakishly small hands— but then again, I think I have pretty average hands for a woman.)

    Each iteration gets better

    I really like the phone. Does pretty much everything well. I do wish the fingerprint scanner was in a better location and it is fairly pricey as are the accessories. But that aside, I would recommend this phone.

    Fantastic phone

    This phone is smooth bright and fast. Love the camara and how crisp the video recording is, I especially like the new feature of the date and time showing when not in use. Only thing I would say that I would add, I had the silver Note 5 prior to this one, wish this came in Silver as well.

    This is my first Note product and I don’t regret it!

    Everything I ever wanted in a phone is present on the Note ! Everything but 1 thing has been above my expectation. S pen is amazing for just navigating the phone or to take notes or coloring/art.

    My one negative is the battery life. When I first got the phone it was beyond amazing for my use. I could get through the day constantly texting and checking emails, playing Pokemon Go here and there. About a month ago my cable messed up my charging port, long story short it is still worked but I needed a new cable. After getting a new Samsung fast charger my battery drains way more than usual. 1 hour into unplugging and I have 92 left usually would still be at 98.

    Other than most probably a messed up battery because of a rogue charger, I cannot complain or think of any negative.

    I defiantly recommend the Galaxy Note 8 to anyone interested!

    The best Phone…..And it comes from Samsung

    I was in the market for the best phone, I am coming from an IOS ecosystem and decided to be open-minded about my decision. Countless reviews and research kept leading me to the note 8, pixel 2, and iPhone X. What eventually won me over was all the added features of the note 8, mainly it is water and dust resistance, the S-pen and the best, biggest brightest display on the market.

    Well I am here to say that I am happy with this phone, the screen lives up to the hype, no other phone screen is as vivid as this one and outdoor viewing is a breeze, s-pen I use from time to time when precise inputs are required, photo editing and taking notes in meetings. This phone is always fast, never had a slowdown once. And one surprising thing which I did not even think about was how fast this phone charges, leave it on the charger for just half an hour and you can make it through most of the day depending how much you use the phone. Camera is excellent, no complaints there at all

    The only complaint is the loud speaker, it is loud and I can hear it fine, but it is not the best quality, hope for some sort of dual speaker with better quality driver set up in the future.

    I am looking to get into your ecosystem next, which is Samsung VR and Samsung gear, I am interested in the S3 frontier since I have big hands but I just cannot afford them right now, these would pair well with this awesome phone, in conclusion …..no regrets switching from an IOS device and picking up the best Samsung had to offer, the Galaxy Note 8

    Disapointed Note 8

    I’ve had the note 4 until they started burning up, was disappointed to have lost it because it was THE BEST smartphone I ever had, always buying Samsung Galaxie’s. Now with this Note 8 I am considering going to another brand only after having this one for 2 months, the quality is not what it brags up to be, camera freezes constantly, volume won’t turn off ringers or other sounds, slow loading viewing. All around a “0” to you.

    Conclusion: I’m a happy man, ever since I got my note 8.

    Calendar App insufficient

    My previous phone was the Note3. In that version of the calendar app, when the NEW button was clicked, one was able to choose between a new EVENT or a new TASK. this is not available in the Note8. It is by default ONLY a new event. In order to start a new TASK one has to VIEW the Task screen and then hit the NEW button. Very inconvenient. Why did the app regress?
    The other feature that is lost in the Note8 Calendar app, is the ability to COPY an event, change a few details, and save it, maintaining the original event as is. Note3 had this. This allowed irregularly recurring events (such as appointments with individual clients) to be copied to a new date, meanwhile keeping all the other pertinent information, such as reminders and notes, intact. Instead, the whole event has to be re-written with the new date, leading to errors of omission. Very inconvenient.

    Greatest device I’ve ever owned!

    I had the Note 7 before the incident with it and I’m glad Samsung stuck to it’s guns and decided to go ahead with the Note 8. The Note 8 is packed with so many features and the pen is redefined with better accuracy. The camera is stunning and takes the best pictures I’ve ever seen in a smartphone camera, it crushes the competition, everyone I’m around makes me take the pictures to send them. The big screen is perfect for multitasking and watching videos, the infinity display makes such a big difference in screen space experience. I can’t wait to see the next iteration.

    Good product overall

    The Note 8 performs as well and as expected however the only two complaints are:

    1) Battery Life: The battery life is way too short and barely gets one full days use on a charge. This is based on using the phone moderately. In addition, the fact the battery cannot be changed by the consumer is a huge negative.

    2) Price: This phone is substantially more than other phones in it’s class.

    So Many Features!!

    I have always enjoyed the Samsung Notes. The Note 8 has So many features that it can be hard to remember how to do the ones I need the moment I need them. Though it is a phone that I can do work on, connect with friends, be entertained and show my creative side with. I really enjoy this phone and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to do so many things anywhere you go.

    Great phone from a former iPhone user

    I recently switched carriers and was interested in trying a new phone. I do like phones with a large screen. Previously having an iPhone 7 plus that I loved. I was happily surprised with the Note 8. I’ve owned Samsung phones in the past and they’d never felt like premium phones. The Note 8 definitely does feel like a premium phone. I like the smaller form factor in comparison to the iPhone 7. The camera is good, but struggles in low light. Battery life is on par with the iPhone and the phone will last a full day no problems for me on a full battery with energy to spare. I don’t use the always on display, but do run the phone in entertainment mode. The screen is gorgeous and the Spen works as well as one would expect.

    case crazy

    cases

    I find it frustrating that I do not have the selection of cases for the Note 8 as other phones do. biggest issue with cell phones in general for women is where to put them. Unlike men we do not always have pockets and if we do they are too small. we do not always have a purse or handbag. I would love a case that protects my phone but with a lanyard so that I can put it around my neck (like a necklace) and it is always handy – not in my purse or stuck in pocket and I can not get it out in time to answer the phone.

    It’s a great phone. I held on to my Note 3 forever. It was the best phone I ever had. Not a huge fan of having to use the pen to do a screen shot but it’s something I will live with as it is not inconvienent. The themes are great and I love the resolution for the camera. I am quite happy. The durability is awesome for a curved screen. I have a thing otter box on it and drop it here and there. No issues at all.

    The potential to be the best android phone ever

    I love everything about this phone. The screen is unmatched, camera is phenomenal, still has a headphone jack, wireless charging AND expandable storage. It has everything you could ever need/want except timely updates. The only thing keeping this phone from dethroning the pixels is the slow updates and lack of stock android. Honestly if google had a headphone jack, wireless charging, expandable storage and a legit screen then it would be a tough call. In my mind the recipe for the worlds greatest android phone is clear, but apparently not to the phone manufacturers. Samsung if you would reduce your Samsung experience overlay to the bare minimum and release OS updates within weeks as opposed to months/years… You would have the best android phone available.

    Look this is a premium device and a productivity master with the pen. But Samsung’s inability to get OS updates through in time is a major letdown here. When you have a device like this you want the latest and greatest features post haste and sadly Samsung continues to lag behind here. Sadly this is the last Samsung device I will be purchasing until they can resolves their OS cadence issues. I mean I can’t even use GIF’s in the Samsung messaging app.

    3 month review

    Had this for 3 months, prior was a note 3 so yes a upgrade, found the autocorrect is on drugs compared to other new phones, battery life is the same as the note 3 even with low settings running. Will admit the display is brighter then the old phone. Not a true fan of the wrap around a green but a proper case helps.

    Over all not to shabby

    Fantastic display and features. Spen works fantastic for any detail level of work and notes. It’s snappy and feels solid. My only gripe would be it’s connection. I have dropped the odd call here and there but overall it’s not to bad. Battery life is exceptional considering it’s massive display. If your pushing the phone gaming or browsing it does drop quick but not unlike any other mobile device out there. The quick charge is very quick so it’s not a hindrance. On a technical level one extremely frustrating note to keep in mind is this device despite saying it supports it. It absolutely does not support vulkan api. I have yet to find a vulkan supported app that works.

    I love this phone. It is an extremely innovative and intuitive phone. The oled screen is breathtaking and the visual esthetics are sleek and comfortable in my hand. I hope you continue to carry the note as your flagship phone. Makes the iPhone a poor second. The battery life is the best so far and lasts for hours of continuous use and the speed is everything you need.

    Love the Fell of the phone

    This is my third note and I can’t be happier. I feel like every time a use it I figure out something new.

    Only think I don’t like is then position of the off on button. Wish it was up a little higher. If you use a selfie stick or a other similar itmes it’s hits right at the button

    There are many good sides of this phone. Personally i think that this device offers best display, features. But if you compare the price to S8 or S8+, the product seems overpriced because it is one of the latest flagship of samsung. It does have some really handy features and performance wise its very fluid.

    Super good phone

    I really like it for instance the clipboard, some things you want to copy and paste and with this phone you can copy many items up to at least 8 and when you go to paste it will all be there in the clipboard, simply paste 1, 2 or 3 different things and all done. No flipping back and forth between apps or web sites just to copy and paste.
    And switching appointments between calendars is also something that comes to mind, with this phone that is what you do, just switch.
    It has a secure folder.
    Great web browsing features.
    Finding a contact to text a message to is super easy.
    I have had it since December and I like it more all the time.
    You want to make a quick note, pull out the pen and write on the screen.

    Good but not perfect

    I like my Galaxy Note 8 for several reasons. However there are also a few bad design decisions too. First the good:

    – A beautifully designed phone (except the curved display)
    – It has a headphone jack
    – The S-pen is nice feature
    – Decent battery life so far (had it for only 3 months)

    Now to the bad features:

    – Curved display is a stupid gimmick that does not have any real benefit. It makes the glass more fragile and screen protectors difficult to apply
    – Samsung bloatware that cannot be uninstalled is super-annoying
    – Always-on-display brightness cannot be set manually. It is always on MAX brightness no matter what I do, so i turned it off completely (what a shame!)
    – Alarm clock can only be dismissed from the notification panel 1 minute(!!!!) before it goes off.. if you wake up 15 min early you have to go into the app to dismiss it (who came up with that?)
    – The useless Bixby button that cannot be remapped (you need to find a 3rd party app and tweak the settings to do it)
    – Screenshot directory cannot be customised. All my screenshots end up in the Camera directory and end up being synced to my Google photos.. I have to manually delete them from there
    – Last but not least, the price… it’s an expensive phone!

    Great preformence

    Really powerful phone and also packed full of features. Bixby is not really his but at least it is easy to disable and then off. Even the historical Samsung bloatware is not present. There are still some apps that don’t make sense like Samsung browser or email client but you don’t need to use them either

    Frankly, I was afraid that the small battery might be an issue. Yes, you gotta tweak your device. But frankly, the screen is so gorgeous that even in FHD mode (Which is the halfway point between HD and 4k) you can’t see any pixels even if you look hard enough.

    I only wish their updates were more on the dot. I wish I could get new android versions within 6 months of their release.

    Nice and big phone lets you do anything you would do on a tablet. Photos are amazing, but the camera app could use some work. I miss the ability to add storage and change a battery like the note 4, but so far it’s been holding its own. Battery lasts the whole day with moderate to heavy use, I was worried about the battery after initial reviews. I would recommend a note 8 to anyone who was looking for an Android!

    Overall, I am pleased with everything the Note 8 has to offer. Performance, features, all good. I was expecting a little more when it came out but I got it anyways because I knew it was a safe buy. And I was right. I have the same amount of trust I always had about Samsung products and everything is all good since I bought it a few months ago.

    I love this phone. The battery lasts quite a while, the screen is bright and vibrant,and the edge display is really handy. The camera is amazing and the true edge to edge screen looks really sharp and well done. The pen whit this phone has lots of features and is great when making quick notes. Overall I really enjoy this phone and all its features. I’d say it’s defiantly worth buying. I got my Note 8 with the blue back and it looks great.

    almost perfect

    So far I have had only good performance from this phone.

    There are a few things that I would change to make it perfect.

    Bring back a physical home button like the Note 5. It does not happen often but sometimes I have troubles accessing the button area due to software fighting me at the time. I had a much easier time using the physical home button for the fingerprint sensor location as well; the back works ok but is not as convenient especially if you wanna use say your thumb instead of a finger.

    I have never liked permanent battery phones so I would make the battery removable.

    Lastly this phone is quite expensive. So if I was to pay so much it should be perfect not nearly perfect.

    The reception is better. My Note 4 was ok and then with the Note 5 there was a design change to the antenna which caused issues. The problem seems to be gone now with this Note 8 for whatever reason design or technology.

    I hope it catches on; they have changed the charging port to I think what is called MIcro C ? Anyway it is a reversible connector so no need to orient the charging cord correctly, that is excellent !

    One of the best phones I have ever had!

    I switched from iPhone 8 Plus to Galaxy Note 8 about 3 months ago and I really love the phone. It is almost the same size hardware as the iPhone 8 Plus but packs so much Display and display is so amazing. Plus I have dropped the phone couple of times on concrete without a case and still the phone has no scuffs or scratches or cracks whatsoever, which makes this phone bulletproof. And the camera takes far more better portrait pictures thab my previous phones plus the pictures are much sharper and have more light overall and it doesn’t looks over exposed at all in my perspective. Lastly I am one of those people who use SPen a lot and it is so better this time. The pen is really precise. Overall a really amazing product and worth every penny. The only drawback I find with this phone is slower software updates as the oreo is out for so long and haven’t got it on my phone yet. But still the phone is super smooth and fast and battery lasts a really long time. Highly recommended!!

    It fits my needs

    It has a great camera and a fast software. It is great for viewing videos because of the screen and it’s true to colour display. The only complaint I have had over the past few days is that Snapchat keeps crashing and I have no idea if that is because of a recent update Samsung did on its software or if Snapchat is just glitching up.

    Good overall but…

    The Good: Very fast, it has a superb screen, awesome camera, and battery life is excellent! Great at multitasking. It has a ton of improvements over previous generations of the note. Overall a serious workhorse.

    The Bad: Its a bit too long and narrow, I constantly have issues with adding a comma after every word I type as its hard to reach my finger over and hit the space key and always end up hitting the comma, very annoying! It has a number of features that aren’t very useful such as facial recognition that doesn’t work very well. While the Gear VR is amazing on the note 8 it is more expensive than other versions of gear VR, a bit of a nitpick but also a bit of a cash grab.

    The ugly: The fingerprint sensor is in an annoying spot and there is no physical home button, personally I much preferred my Note 4 over newer generations for only that reason.

    Overall: I am very happy with the phone there isn’t much else on the market that can do what this phone does.

    From the S Pen to the Infinity Display and everywhere in between, this device does not disappoint. It powers through eberything you throw at it with its superb processor and 6GB of RAM. The display is bright and vibrant, and extremely responsive to both touch input as well as S Pen use.
    The camera provides flawless pictures and excellent low light functionality and performance.
    This device is the epitome of excellent desogn in practoce.

    A powerhouse for modern phone addict.

    Amazing phone… I strongly suggest adding a stick on finger ring accessory to the back of it as insurance, as it is large enough to stress hands with prolonged usage. For example stretching the thumb to the far side of the screen during use can result in dropping this beautiful phone. I love the phone, it does seem about 5-10 percent too wide for one hand operation… and becomes a two handed phablet. I still wouldnt switch to anything else I see on the market today.

    Nice phone but suitable only for extreme power users

    Unnecessarily overbuilt. Has WQHD display but default set to FHD, maybe to save battery? Nice features but some duplicated on stylus menu and with gimmicks like edge panels. Stylus is very nice to use, makes some tasks easier to perform. The write-on screen shot is very handy to use. Stable operating system. Good tech support.
    Three different ways to access the same features does not justify the high price. I would recommend this device only for power users that would benefit from advanced features.

    I love the phone with the exception of the edge. Yes it’s kind of cool to have the extra options but you cant get a case that can protect the screen. Even with some of the best cases the screen won’t survive if it falls face down. This wasn’t the case with previous versions.

    Preamble: I am a partner at a technology firm with a computer science degree.
    This phone is just about perfect. Speed is blazing thanks to specs equivalent to a computer. Screen is excellent and blue light filter only makes it better. Little bloatware on the software side and massive room for storage, especially with an SD card… But Bixby is worse than Galaxy from 4 years ago. Pen is more precise than a real pen – easily the best stylus I’ve ever used and I have 2 active styles tablets at work. The only downside is the speakers – only 1 vs 2/stereo, and it’s not very loud. I hear the new phones will have that but it doesn’t help me, especially considering how much I paid. My past 3 phones have been notes and I see no chance of that changing anytime soon.

    Also stylus apps and functionalities could be improved and brought at a much higher level.

    THIS phone in terms of functionality and features is probably the best in the market. So many ways to customize and tinker with it compared to my previous iPhone 6. Absolutely love taking notes with the stylus, I find it very handy and practical for on the fly note taking. The best thing about this phone for me is the SCREEN. It has an absolutely amazing looking screen and it is huge (perfect for watching videos and reading ebooks). Not to mention the nice curve functionality to assign shortcuts to.

    Where is the battery life?

    I can’t make it through a work day without a recharge. I recognize Samsung had to cut back the battery after the last attempt at the Note but this does not meet today’s standards (or even those of 5 years ago). Once I turn on the power saving mode my GPS doesn’t seem to work and apps that should be running in the background just aren’t.
    These things shouldn’t be happening for the price of their flagship phone.
    On the bright side, I bought this phone for the camera and it has not disappointed and takes beautiful photos.

    This phone has amazing power in terms of storage, gaming and battery. Also, I recommend this phone to people who don’t care about the fancy technology but durability because I have dropped this phone so many times and it has not gotten a single crack. So, long story short this phone is really practical, thus making it almost the perfect phone.

    Absolutely love this phone!

    This really is the best Samsung as of yet. I love the Note8 and the features that it comes with. Not really a fan of Bixby though and don’t use it at all. So that is one feature that I could definitely do without. I really don’t like the gorilla glass that these new Samsung phones come with as it scratches way too easily. I have quite a few surface scratches already, none are deep enough to be super noticeable, but when I have my screen off if I turn my phone in certain lighting, I can see that they are there. The only other issue I have, isn’t necessarily with the phone, but definitely with the availability of cases. Samsung seems to have a nice one with a stand, which I have, but there is zero protection for the plug or aux plug ports so it gets filled with dust and things in no time, and the otterbox option isn’t protective enough due to trying to leave room for the S-pen to be able to come out properly. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone looking to do an upgrade though. As far as I’m concerned it is the best phone out there and I love the battery life on it. I actually now prefer the rear thumbscan as it is even easier to use than the front one was, and don’t pay attention to the people who are worried about hitting the camera lense, I haven’t done it once. I do really like the lack of physical home button too. Again, it’s a new feature that on e you get used to it, it’s actually better. So get this phone if you’re thinking about upgrading, you won’t regret it!

    This is by far the best device on the market! All the features on this device are top tier and honestly could not have been made better .. from the design of the phone to the clarity of the screen to the new camera .. the new design of the pen

    Prossssw and Cons

    Pictures:
    Although high def at times, there’s static in some pics. Maybe ita better if there’s a guide how to take good photos that’d be great. Specially when using PRO functio .

    Body: great screen size and colors. No screen protector that stays for more yhan 2 days. Air bubbles alwats creeps in.

    Apps: there might be something that not comoatible with FB & Instagram. Both crashes or does not unload porperly. Even though both apps are updated and so is android.

    Waterproof: tried an tested. Yay!

    Speaker is weak though, phone is not good for paying music. I havent found the adjustment for it.

    The earphones that comes with it is not that good. Cant stop play or forward music 🙁 it always slips out of the ear. No good grip. (My lobes are small though)

    Battery life: it lasts throughout the day! Yay!

    Pen: highly responsive. Hopefully in the future it can be used for calligraphy style that’s responsive to how hard you press the screen.

    Took some getting used to after switching from the note 4..not a big fan of not having a home button or the other buttons on the screen. Otherwise it seems ok. Battery life seems good at the moment.. however time will tell..i hope this does not have the programmed failure both my note 4 phones experienced.. not happy about that Samsung

    My Note 8

    I was always an iPhone guy, this is the first Android phone for me, the screen has way better graphics than the iPhone, so real. The iPhone battery was always an issue, to the point where the phone would have to be plugged in all the time, I’m talking about an 1.5 year old iphone. No more iphone for me.

    My note 8 is overall a nice phone and does more things than l will use but one thing l don’t like is that it don’t always send my texts first time or takes awhile to send it. Or it will fail to send right away then the receiver will get it twice
    For the cost of this phone l don’t think it should have little glitches like that
    Never had a problem like that with the note 2

    Problem

    this is the firs glass that i have broken, the curve of the screen makes it to easy for glass to break. I even have an otterbox case on it and it still splintered.

    Speakers are in a bad spot. if i’m holding the phone looking at it, it’s too easy to have your hand cover part of the speaker

    Great product, however noticed glitches

    I have used iPhone for the past 8 years and recently switched to Samsung for the first time. Overall I have enjoyed the switch however a big glitch, which I have researched online and found other people are also experiencing, is the Edge Lighting feature. It does not function properly and is very disappointing as it’s one of the more eye-catching and flashy, sell-able features of the phone and its software. It is disappointing, and the lack of response to this is a concern, compared to the speed at which Apple normally addresses and fixes software issues. Additionally, I am used to the smart gestures of the iPhone (swiping to go back to previous screen/menu option, etc) and having to change to always pressing the back arrow is a big and more time-consuming change. Not sure if this is something Samsung can change or if it is patented by Apple but it is very inconvenient.

    All in all though, I enjoy the customize-ability of this phone and the plethora of options and functions it provides.

    Magnificent phone: basically a little computer

    This phone is magnificent. It does everything I want and lots of stuff I just pick up as I need it. S-pen is nice to have although I seldom use it.
    But, it is too expensive and the fingerprint reader is all but useless for people with small hands, placed on the back as it is. However the facial recognition works well but is not as safe as the fingerprint of course.
    Also it is a very fragile phone so I have a case on it. Even with the case the edge chipped. Sturdy exterior cover would be nice.
    However it is the fingerprint scanner placement at the back that caused the 4 star rather than 5. I had the Edge 7 last and the scanner was poor but at least placed on the front.
    Bixby is great but I am just learning it. Using both google assistant and Bixby gets me most of what I want but I am not yet skilled with using my voice to access programs and settings.
    This is my 3rd note and I really like them.

    Not as happy as I thought I would be

    I had the Note 2 for almost 5 years when I made the decision to upgrade. I loved it.
    I originally bought the Note 2 for the larger size screen. I thought that the Note 8 with the even bigger screen would be that much better. Well, not so much. I am finding the extra size just a little too big. Too long really. It doesn’t fit near as well in all of the spots that I used to keep the Note 2.
    I know lots of people like the infinity edge, but I don’t really.
    I bought an Otterbox for the protection of the screen and then realized that any of those protective cases won’t work for the Note 8, as they have to allow for that rounded edge.
    Because the Otterbox wasn’t going to protect my screen, I had to buy a protective shield for the glass cover
    Well, now it’s so hard to use my finger on the screen and have to use the stylus all of the time.
    The symbol indicating that I have the stylus out, is right in the way of where I am typing lots of time. It’s such a pain.
    I have a hard time finding the functions that I need.
    I still can’t find out where I can put my choice of screen on my front page.
    It’s not near as easy to use as the Note 2 was.

    Curved screen is annoying.

    I’ve tried three different screen protectors, brands that I used with previous phone, and none of them stayed on the curved screen. When they were on, I couldn’t select any icons or write within the edges of the phone without pressing really hard and purposefully.

    Otherwise the phone is fine. I chose this phone over others for the size of the screen and the stylus, and have not been disappointed in that respect.

    In previewing my review, I see that “&#039” has been inserted into my text. ????

    While I am a Note fan and moved up from a Note 3 to Note 8 I am having difficulty adapting to it relative to access and completing emails. It bounces out of my
    Emails. The board disappears. Obviously my technical skills are lacking. I need instructions.Opening the screen also an issue. The fingerprint is useless.

    It’s a good phone. But not perfect.

    It’s pricy. I am still working on getting used to the finger scanner position. Face unlock is not always working. Sometimes the aspect ratio of the screen makes content look unnatural.

    However the display is vivid. Super sharp. It’s not my daily driver due to compatibility issues with some of my productivity Apps. It’s a fun phone. Very performant. Unfortunately the finger scanner is annoying. It simply cannot compete with competition. Too bad that even upcoming phones are not going back to basics and a simple finger scanner.

    Love it!

    Still learning all the capabilities. Would like the note screen not to disappear after it is written, took me a while to learn where the note went. The phone ringing volume has been challenging. I have missed call and am not sure why, when media is on full volume. Takes amazing photos, just learned that it also shoot in raw, great bonus! Would also like my notifications to flash on the front screen, as they only visible if you click on the screen. Also, my keyboard is on silent but when I type a message is makes noise? I am sure there are ways of doing these things but I have not been able to figure them out, yet. Love all the different screens that you can get to and keep open while searching information. Overall I would highly recommend it! Best cell phone I have had!

    Touch screen sensitivity sucks

    1. The touch screen is not sensitive enough even after changing the settings. I don’t even use a screen protector. Very frequently the space button is not even recognized under nirmal typing pressure.
    2. No reasonable screen protector available.

    My first Android product – was about time!

    If I had gone to Android/Samsung earlier, it might have been a disaster for me. I have always known Samsung makes great products but don’t think I was ready for “The switch” until now. Android products and especially the Note 8 seem to have taken everything good from other products and removed all the annoying stuff! The pen is the greatest feature for me especially used to take quick notes right on the blank screen. And the pictures are amazing.
    10/10 for this amazing phone!

    I really like the note line and have had almost all the note phones with the exception of the five a seven. One thing I found lacking was the Samsung photo editor doesn’t allow me to input text larger than a word or two at a time and if I use a large word it will separate the word and place the first half of the word above the other half. I have been using smart select and pining the sentences or paragraphs to the screen and then taking a screenshot. If there is something I’m missing then great please educate me. As of now I’m confused why such a great phone would limit this obvious that would be needed when editing a pic in order to give instructions to my field staff.

    We’ll see if this changes based on my knowledge of the phone, however, at this point in time, I still like my Samsung Note II better.

Now ok the screen size is nice, the edge too, but just not worth the price… If they would add an accessory at purchase it would be better but they don’t. Disappointed about a few aspects, at that price they should at least add a watch or something

    The Ultimate Phone So Far

    For years I’ve owned several iPhones, starting with the very first model. I switched to a Note 4 Edge which was a great device with a few glitches and loved it until it drowned in my hot tub. I replaced it with the Note 8, a superb phone which fixed everything.

    The Note 8 has it all, a fabulous large screen, fast performance, good battery life, extensible storage, excellent camera & waterproof. As an engineer I like to use diagrams to record my ideas so I use the stylus for making notes.

    I’ve recently starting using the S3 Gear with the phone and the two devices work seamlessly together.

    I highly recommend the Note 8 for engineers and other professionals.

    Great phone just wish the features were universal

    Im in Canada and some of the features like the mst for Samsung Pay arent available. I have noticed the device is slowing down already even just after one month so that worries me. And last but not least for the negatives, my micro SD card wont stay mounted for more than a couple of days. With all of that said I do love the phone as stylus input is a huge thing for me, but Id have to admit that if another manufacturer released a decent stylus based phone Id be very tempted to see what they had to offer.

    -Wall plug gets really hot during changing.
    -Protective cover makes very dificalt or impossible to use wireless charging unit;
    -Use of screen cover (although saved my phone’s screen ones) made very frustrating use of screen alongside of curved edges.
    -Loved removable battery and hate the current design;
    -Disappointed that only some markets get dual SIM capable model;

    As the owner of Note 5, I was excited finally upgrade my device to the new Note 8. After 3 years of owning the Note 5, with no issues at all, the new Note seemed like the best upgrade for me to change my device.

    After 3 months of owning, a small crack appeared on the bottom right corner above the S Pen dock. It happened while the phone was in my hand typing a message. I heard a popping sound and suddenly I left the screen was sharp to the touch.

    Since day 1 of owning the phone, I’ve had it in the Otter Box Defender to ensure my device was safe.

    I made a phone call to client care but they mentioned they have not heard of such an issue and directed me to how I can have the screen replaced at my cost.

    I began to look into trhe issue with other note 8 owners with the same issue. I found a Community.Samsung.com forum with over 40 pages of other owners that have experienced the same issue… both with cracked screens and poor customer support from Samsung.

    Due to these issues, unless reconsidled by Samsung, this will be my last Samsung product and I will ensure to spread the word not to buy such products.

    Ads drive me nuts

    I am thinking of getting rid of this phone. Love the phone but can not handle the ads constantly popping up when phone is fully charged or when I open the phone up. I did not know about this until I bought the phone. Why ?

    Great product overall…but

    Still too much bloatware Samsung…otherwise I do like the phone.

    Nice upgrade from the Note4

    All the best features of the Note4 and more. Not sure if i’ll miss the replaceable battery yet especially since I kept the resolution at FHD+ (factory default – I tried WQHD+ and battery life suffered barely making it through the day). Phone is too tall and digs into my hip in my pocket. I would also have liked dual speakers.

    Note 8

    Have enjoyed using this for work (and for games). It is versatile and efficient with good battery life compared to my old phone.

    It’s the best phone I ever had from Samsung but still needs some improvements.

    I’m a fan of Samsung since I’m from Korea but there are few features and service that needs to be provided from Samsung Canada and Samsung company itself.
    Camera always has been weak side of Samsung phone but surprisingly good this time but the tone of colours are still not quite good as apple product.
    Also, in Canada they don’t offer more colours or storage capacity like what they offer in Korea or international version.
    Only black and blue was available with 64gb. I wanted to get grey with 256gb like what they offer in Korea.
    Another concern with note 8 is that the battery capacity is not the best. the batter run out so fast that you can’t really enjoy the performance the phone offers to you.
    Also can’t this phone on my trip (When I travel around) much because batter run out even faster if i’m willing to take videos and pictures.
    Last concern is that high quality video features. They need to improve the duration of videos taking.

    Great phone but…

    I really want to love this device but I’m so worried about dropping a glass phone.
    Also, the fingerprint scanner could be in a better location as I’m always needing to wipe off the camera lens.
    For the price, I would have expected some loyalty credits towards Note8 assessories(headphones/MicroSD/Dex)

    Great phone but feels really fragile.

    Love my Galaxy Note 8

    I previously had the Note 5 (loved that phone) and decided to try the new Google phone. I ended up buying the contract out and coming back to Samsung. This is by far the best phone I’ve owned. The features are intuitive and user friendly. The design is sleek and feels lightweight in my hand. Love the camera, takes beautiful pictures. It’s fast, handles multiple apps with ease, and leaps tall buildings in a single bound. If it wasn’t for the location of the fingerprint scanner (right next to the camera lens) this would be a 10/10!

    Complaints

    I like the phone a lot, it does have a few downsides though. The curved screen can be a little annoying (it interferes with the touch contols). The clock on the home screen looks terrible, it’s very poorly designed and it can’t be changed.

    Perfect in every way…sorta

    This phone is a beast. Fast, smoot performance, great camera, amazing screen, but. Battery life in the note series has been declining since the note 4

    Excellent on biggest priorities, issues with s-pen housing

    Pros: Excellent performance, battery life, and display. Camera performs exceptionally well in very low lighting, and is more than satisfactory overall.

    Cons: S pen is handy, but falls out easily. May have been an issue with my device specifically, but regardless mine fell out multiple times (while “clicked” into place and with the phone in a case) and eventually it fell out without me noticing and I lost it. An official replacement is overly expensive, so I’ll likely have to go with a 3rd party for a lower quality replacement.

    Location of speakers and mic at the bottom are inconvenient and can be blocked easily depending on how you hold the phone. Mono speaker is lower quality than expected.

    A case and screen protector are necessary. The glass backing makes the device slippery, and the screen developed multiple scratches before I added my screen protector.

    Great!

    Expensive, but I feel it is worth it. I love how fast this phone is, and as a long time Note user am impressed with how smooth everything software wise is. The s-pen, as always, is fantastic. The expandable storage option with an SD card is beyond great. Well done Samsung.

    Note 8

    Very happy with this phone. Didn’t like the finger print reader on the back at first but got used to it. The headphones and audio are absolutely fantastic. Awesome sound – good one Samsung! Would highly recommend phone. Morra

    Love it

    Love almost everything about this phone. Battery life is amazing. The screen. Waterproof. S Pen and Samsung Notes. I can stream champions league and send sms at the same time with very small battery consumption. Bixby is really good and complements Google Now very well. The only con is that it is a bit big for pockets.

    This is a beautifully designed phone.

    This is one of the nicest phones I have ever owned to date. It has nice sleek lines with the wrap around screen, and a sleek profile that fits nicely into your hand. And the oled makes for great colours.
