    This is the most awesome phone I have had. I have had the Galaxy series phones for years,3,5,7, and now the Note8. It does more than I thought it would and more than I really know how to use but the unlocked phone has really stopped some of the reception issues I have been having every time I go to work out of town in several areas. I have been the traveling for years and it's the first time I have signal at the hotel I stay at. Been nothing but a happy dance for this customer

    My only thing I don't like about the phone is the fingerprint button is oddly placed. But Samsung is always ahead of the curve in technology and deserves more attention like the iPhone because they are way better and way more far advanced!!! I mean they are durable, great cameras, great Samsung apps in addition to Google play, and very nice advanced technology accessories that goes with them!!! I highly recommend!!!!

    Does not work with AT&T 4G LTE!!

    I preorderd the unlocked note 8 phone from Best Buy. When it arrived I took it to AT&T for them to setup. They could not get it to work with 4G LTE only the H+ network. We called AT&T direct, and we were on the phone with them for over an hour. They tried everything but in the end they said the note 8 unlocked version will not do 4G LTE on the AT&T network. They suggested I return the phone and order the AT&T version and then unlock it after I pay off the phone. What a bummer!! $

    Forced to switch from Windows phone to another platform. :-( I looked at all of the options and decided to switch to an Android OS phone. It's not what I'm used to but, I do like the fact that MS has ported Office apps to work well within Android. As for the Hardware, I really like the Note 8 for it's clean display, decent camera and of course the hand writing option which is the biggest reason for buying this phone.

    I purchased this phone as a result of my old Note3 being on it's final trip. I am still learning how to use all the features. The PROS. It's fast, I can run all my apps. It has enough memory to do what I need at the moment. The screen is sharp and there is plenty of room to occasionally use the split screen option. Love the pen. CONS :there are still a lot of apps that come with this phone that I don't want or even an explanation of what will they do for me.

    great display, great camera, decent battery life. I was replacing an older Android phone whose OS was a few years old. I initially wanted a less expensive phone, but the camera on this device was way better than anything below 500 dollars. I don't care for Bixby, but that may be because I prefer to stay with the Google's OS rather than proprietary software. I am still learning some of the outstanding features.

    I had the 7. Thankfully the recall went global and Verizon had to accept it back in any condition. A pocket drop shattered it the night before turn in. I went for an unlocked 8 just as 9 was being released. After reading the reviews , the biggest advancement was in the pen. Not worth the extra 100's for me. Like my 8. Big screen. Very satisfied. Will upgrade when there is a significant advancement

    This phone is top of the line, also meaning it's expensive. Thanks to best buys flexible payment methods, it made this purchase more affordable than ever. The Note 8 is flawless in every way. Definitely worth the money. It is everything you would expect from a phone with 6Gb of RAM. That's something that could be easily compared to a laptop. I definitely would recommend this product for anyone looking into a phone. With the 2 year and 0% APR, there are no excuses.

    This is a big device, but I am a big guy so its size does not impede my use. The transition from iOS to Android hasnt had any real bumps. Love the Pen feature and being able to sketch out ideas and crop information from emails. The device has a big screen and the battery is a bit light for moderate all day use. But my iPhone had the same issue. Overall, this is the phone that Apple should have released three years ago but that Samsung has owned Apple on.

    This is a good overall phone upgraded camera from the 7 good screen size and screen quality... but what doesn't make this phone great is how sensitive the screen is... don't drop this phone or even buy ta case that is too snug the lcd will crack ... need insurance coverage if you buying this phone but this holdd true for all the Samsung phones from the 7 edge and up ...

    Too Bulky

    I used to be an iphone 6SE user. for me, this phone turned out to be too bulky. Maybe other people are used to such a large phone. I with they build a similar phone that is smaller in size. This phone seems suitable for a woman's purse but not for a man's pocket. Other than that. I think it has lots of gadgets and nice features.

    I am on the Verizon network with this phone - works great though keep in mind visual voicemail and video calling will not work as they are dependent on a Verizon specific program that is only preloaded on Verizon phones. In my opinion, the no bloatware and blocked features (Verizon blocks certain aspects of the phone such as Samsung Cloud to push out their own services like verizon cloud) makes up for the loss of videocalling/visualvm

    Best Phone Ever

    I was a victim of the Note 7 Debacle and had lost a little faith in Samsung Phones. However, the Note 8 has restored my faith. This phone has delivered on all of my expectations. The screen is vibrant, the S-Pen is great, and the new Bixby assistant is an added plus. I thought it would be awkward not having the home button, but it didn't take long getting accustomed to not having it and pressing the bottom area of the screen.

    Been on android since v 2.2, way back in 2010. This is my first non-Nexus and I am very satisfied. The UI is great and lightweight and has so many extras a Nexus/Pixel doesn't. The hardware is even better. I got an unlocked version but after doing so I'd only change that to buying a carrier branded version and paying outright as you won' get HD Voice, Wifi Calling or Video Calling with ATT or Verizon with a carrier unlocked. I am very satisfied.

    I bought a Note 8 back in July to replace my Moto G that began to have issues charging. I love the wireless charging and the USB-C port. When combined with a Samsung Dex, a monitor/TV, keyboard and mouse, the Note 8 becomes a very good alternative to a laptop. I absolutely hate having to drag out my 10 pound (personal) Alienware laptop at work, so this combo works really well for me.

    First off the screen is too small. I was expecting at least 7.3 infinity display. It also only has 6gb ram. I was expecting 16gb. Also only has a SD 835 was expecting a 7th gen i7. I was also expecting 1tb storage and not a measly 64gb. I know I can use micro SD but the 1tb storage option would be better. My final thoughts...with almost everything not coming close to my expectations, my next phone will have to be a blackberry keyone.

    I've owned this phone for a year now and couldn't be happier! I bought it to replace a Note 4 that died on me (think it overheated). Fast phone, running latest Android, great camera! Sound is OK, but could be a little louder and richer for my liking. I'm sure there are better out there now with how fast technology is these days, but I would still highly recommend this phone.

    The first phone I ever fell in love with was a Nokia 1520, Microsoft's phablet. After using an old nexus phone for the last couple years I am SO glad I upgraded. I LOVE the size of the screen and the look and feel of the phone. Everything runs super fast, battery lasts all day, and the cameras are great. Telescopic lens on the camera is a great touch and the S pen is great for jotting down notes in a hurry.

    Excellent performance in every way field you can imagine. One of the most notable things about this phone is the way it manages the battery. Even though some people might feel that the phone has lesser mAh battery but It will still get you pretty much throughout day and maybe even more. S-pen is a great tool and the stylus looks very stylish! There was not a single friend of mine who saw the phone and didn't let out a gasp!

    This is my first Samsung device from the Note line and I've been blown away! It has been my daily driver for the past 3 months for work and play and it's the first Samsung phone I've been truly happy with. Battery life is phenomenal when not in a signal-starved area and the camera responsiveness is incredible.
