    Really it is ... is the best smartphone on the market. Fast, super excellent screen. Coming from Samsung have to be the best screen. Good for use outside when is very sunny. The S-Pen have more improvements, very accurate and responsive. The battery last the whole day, probably sometimes you going to need to charge during the day but that's not a problem with the fast charger. Try also the wireless charger, it's amazing, fast and convenient. Is going to replace the lack of new C-USB cables. Because no cables need it and wireless chargers works with old charger cables. My last advice ... wait until goes on special because the price is too high.

    A great Galaxy Note by far

    This is my second Samsung Galaxy Note. My first was the Note 4. This is much faster and cooler than the 4. Faster charging time too! I especially love this new S-Pen! The new Note 9 has a different color pen than the phone, but this Note 8 pen matches my phone color. And the color choices are better than the Note 4 too! I am glad that Samsung added some better cameras and camera features as well as an updated S-Pen. I have used this phone for about a year and still love it! I bought the carrier unlocked version so I can take it with me no matter what phone company I use. Awesome!

    I have just received my unlocked version today, and the reason I would not recommend this to a friend because Best Buy official website said this is a Dual Sim phone, in fact Samsung USA never sell any dual sim product within the US market, and you will only get one IMEI for the phone. Tech Support of Best Buy will say that you should try to install the SIM into microSD slot, do not try that it will not work. The specification on the website is wrong, but other than that, it is a good price, and unlocked for all carrier :)

    Ever if you have a glimpse of thought I like it. Just go for it guys. I am 100% sure you won't get disappointed, it's 100% worth the price. Just exploring this phone was a real nice experience. Design till performance, everything is so well balanced. Many complain about Bixby.. but frankly saying, It's so smart than those who write a bad review about it. It automated a lot of stuff for you. And best of all. It's like a game using Bixby. You get XP ;) we gamers love XP.. I really wanted everyone to explore it. It's so good. I wish Google and Samsung work together to get more of this type. That's would be amazing. Good job Samsung.

    After using for over a month now. I would say this is a beast of a phone. I have owned every single Note series phone except the Note 7 because you know ;). Note 8 is past all that and proves its worth. Handles multi tasks very well. With S-Pen it is a perfect phone for my day to day business activities. The camera is outstanding with its dual lens feature. That Bixby button always gets in the way when turning down the volume but its not a killer. I am not really a fan of all these personal assistants out there on phones (too much dependence on tech). Overall its a great phone.

    Replaced my Note 3 (cracked screen) with this Note 8 phone. This phone is very cool. The only one thing that I do not like is its very slippery to hold and the curved screen on the sides makes it ever worse to hold. But functions/speed/build quality/performance are just amazing. There are several reviews already about the phone, I am not going into details about that. The phone box came with Type-C USB Cable Smart Switch Adapter; SIM tray ejector;Stereo headset;Wall Adapter;Type-B to Type-C USB converter- so I don't have to worry about replacing my old charger type B adapter. Over all very happy with this phone. 5 Stars!

    Technically, not true now that the Note 9 is out, but for the price, this phone is the one to beat. Good battery, lagless experience, great screen, open to any network. I got the S8 originally but was disappointed in the user experience and flimsy feeling. The Note 8 fixed all of that and had solutions to problems I didn't even know I had. This is the phone that made me believe in Android again. Especially for those that pay for their phones outright, I'd consider you to really evaluate the specs and performance of the Note 9 to see if it's worth the extra money. Going to be with this guy for awhile.

    Without a doubt, the best phone I've ever had. It has mostly replaced my laptop. The processor is snappy and fast. 6 GB of RAM means lots of multi-tasking. The pen feels a bit thin but I have big hands. Front and rear cameras take gorgeous pictures. Charging is fast; about 2 hours from 15% to full. Battery life is incredible. I can go about a a day and a half with normal usage (approx. 6-8 hours of screen on time). You get AKG earbuds from the factory! Definitely a good value there. It might feel a bit cumbersome if you have small hands. Definitely play with it in the store first to see if that's your thing. Wonderful phone otherwise.

    Heavy, Breakable, No Warranty for brakage

    Jerry

    Less than 3 months after purchasing my new phone it fell out of my pocket no more than a foot off the ground. It also was in a protective case, but the front lens cracked. Samsung boast about it's Gorilla Glass and on the Best Buy website there is a 1 year warranty for parts and labor, but read it carefully. Neither Samsung or Best Buy would or could do anything. Now,I have to pay close to $400.00 to repair. Buyer Be Ware! If you purchase this phone I recommend to buy the insurance warranty does not cover breakage. Overall not a bad phone, but would recommend the 8 not the Note due to it's weight and some features are not that great.

    My first Android smartphone was the Galaxy S4, I was blow away by the performance and speed of the device (Software update are another story). But 4 years later the statement still holds true. The Note 8 is a beautiful phone with outstanding quality and attention to detail. In the past I've used the Nexus 5X, Huawei Honor 8, Blackberry KEYone, and even the iPhone X and yet, even though I miss the Blackberry's keyboard, I can't help but find almost no faults with this phone. The finger print scanner is in a alright position, it didn't take me long to get used to it. The cameras are top notch. I would really recommend.

    Bixby has to go.

    Still learning the functions of this phone, but my first impressions are complicated and overpriced. And Bixby opening whenever I pick up the phone and touch that side button is a real pain. Maybe that button can be programmed to open something more useful to the owner. I wouldn't mind it opening to voice commands since I'm driving a lot. I'll keep playing with this and trying out more features. Maybe the phone will grow on me. Everyone makes a big deal about the camera and yeah it takes good pictures. But they all take good pictures now. Right now I'm thinking I should have waited for the S9 to be released.

    Burn in issues

    Screen burn-in in less than 6 month. Samsung doesn't offer a good warranty package. They asked me to factory reset the device and send it via mail. Then wait 7-9 business days. They didn't have any options for me to take the phone to repair it. Or send me a replacement then I send this one back. That is horrible, I cant send my phone for so long. I use it daily. The keyboard is completely burned in the screen if you put a white or blue image you can see the keyboard clearly. I would recommend to stay away from samsung. Apple offers far better warranty. They replace the display in the spot.

    I love love love this phone!!! The phone arrived a day before it should which was great!!!! The phone looks brand new and no one could tell it is refurbished. It came with the original charger and adapter pieces to attach to the chargers that fit other android phones. It came with the s-pen It didn't have headphones which was perfectly fine with me because this price was much better than the 950 in store price. It works with T-mobile. I had no trouble switching over and restoring my information. The phone was packaged well and was secure.

    Note 8 best of Samsung

    The Note 8 is by far the most useful multipurpose phone i have ever own.Despite the setback of $1,000+, it's truly shows it worth from the bezzleless screen to its high resolution color display. The intergrated useage of the S Pen is more capable than preivous note series. The battery is much better than credited and i run youtube ,snapchat, and a lot of gaming apps thats 8 AM to 1 AM. From 100% to 41% without power saver on. You are honestly getting your moneys worth. Only downside is clean the screen since it glass and all. but Still worth it.

    I had my Samsung Note 2 for five years and was really happy with it, but it was time to upgrade, I really liked the features that the old phone had, but with the new technology it was time to up date, I really happy with the Note 8, especially with the camera and more storage space, the only thing that I miss is the driving mode feature on the note 2. I have added at hands free car kit to over come this issue. I would also like to thank the folks at the Peachtree City location for all their help.

    Its been exactly a month of me using my new Galaxy Note 8 and it's wonderful. I had no issues switching my service. This was an 'open box' purchase so i was a bit nervous it would have some signs of use but there was none. Not a single scratch. All the accessories were included and unused. Phone is still working flawlessly. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase. If I decide to upgrade to a s9 or s10 i will definitely buy from Best Buy!

    This is my first android phone. Have always been a fan of apple products. Now, I have been using it for 2 months, and it has been great. The s-pen is very precise. I love the off screen memo feature. It's very helpful in making notes, grocery lists & I even use it as a reminder. The camera is everything I hoped for. Now, I can have a professional shot using only my phone. The colors are vibrant, the shots are great (not to mention the bokeh feature). Overall, this phone is great. I'm loving every inch of it.

    Okay so my Note 7 was forcefully ripped away from my hands by federal agents and Samsung. On top it took 8 months to get a refund from samsung.com. Yet I have high expectations for the Note 8, and learned my lesson Im buying from Best Buy this time. The battery is a tad smaller than last year, but any professional Ingresser already owns a few Anker battery packs so no big deal. The hardest part will be waiting for a good protective case. I smashed my S7 the first week I had it and I was livid. So come on Samsung learn from your mistake and rise from the ashes with the new Note 8 Phoenix.

    I dont have a product review, but all i can say is the phone is AWESOME. The sales person made this a great buy. It was so busy that day and my husband and I just wanted to get in and out by getting Note 8. We stood at the Samsung station for awhile trying to find someone to help us. But this gentleman came by and ask us what we wanted. We told him we just need the phone. And he went on his way and got it for us. Rung us up and even helped put the protection screen on it. He was supet helpful. I just can't remember his name. Go to Oakdale, MN to get your next best buy purchase.

    I have been an iPhone person forever, but thought I would try the Note 8 based on reviews. A great move. Despite other's comments, I get LTE 4G thru Straight Talk on this unlocked model. The battery life is as good as my iPhone 6S+. What I didn't expect was having to buy a new set of USB-C cables and upgraded wall chargers. Bixby seems to be a waste of time (can't compare with Siri). Am still learning to navigate the Android system, but no problems so far.
