    Camera is not as good/ not a remote

    Camera needs some work. Zooming makes my photos still blurry/ pixelated. I thought note 8 would fix that. Thought it have a remote control app but it is not. Wish they meet my needs. I need a super phone. Still I like the design, even the pen. I am trying to stay content with it but as far as I am concern people need to work on fixing blurry images or pixelated images every time they zoom in or if they embiggen the image.

    After the huge letdown with the Note 7 samsung has made a comeback with the note 8. It's one of the best note generations i have seen in a while and worthy of an upgrade. The price is definitely on the higher side however with all the bixby/samsung perks it can help bring the cost down. The stylus interface is butter smooth and the screen is something to behold. It has great form factor and catches alot of peoples eye.

    Only had my cell for a short time, however I am very happy with how it operates far. I love all the extra little things it does. Still getting to grips with bixby, but looks like it is pretty useable. Only thing on the negative would be the finger print scanner being on the back. But i can live with that as i knew it was there when i bought the phone.

    Really, these days we use these devices more for texting, web surfing, taking photos and watching videos than making phone calls. This device does all of those very well with the added bonus of being able to write on the screen with the S pen! I use it to make quick notes, and in some cases to write on photos before sending them off. Makes my job easier, and that's a good thing.

    Having owned the Note4 in the past, it's so nice to get back into the Note family. Updated features are amazing. Camera is phenomenal! So much capability and customization. The option to save RAW files is a must for every photographer, so this addition deserves a kudos! Still delving into the many changes and upgrades, but overall pleased with how well they thought and planned everything. Thank you, SAMSUNG!

    My daily driver and its Half way through 2018 (June) and this thing still works as it did on Day 1. Not feeling any battery degradation. Powerful and fast as always and no slowdowns what so ever.... I am STILL LOVING my Note-8. I will keep it until I see what S-10 or Note-10 will bring.... And I can confidently say it will run like a champ until then. I highly recommend even in 2018

    There's no doubt the Galaxy phones are simply the most futuristic, beautiful phones on the market. I am so excited to get my hands back on the Note after losing my Note 7 last year. I see too much whining about the battery... Suck it up... The phone offers more than any other phone and I would have preferred my Note 7 having had a safer battery than my having to go a whole year without it. Way to go Samsung!

    The photos and screen/video resolution is the real selling point of this phone, but we have been pleasantly surprised with the ease of the apps and the ability to find what we need (as former iphone users.) Rarely use the stylus, though--swipe and touch is responsive and well done.

    NOTE 8 IS A WINNER!

    Great phone right out of the box. I'm enjoying the mix of great design combined with feature packed functionality. The camera results on the Note 8 are far better than any of the past Note phones I've had. There is a small learning curve but we'll worth the effort. While the iPhone 8 and X have attractive features, the Note 8 just stands out!

    What can I say this phone is amazing. I love the size of the phone compared to my old S7edege. I must say it is great. For reading more words fit on the page than they did before. The Live Message app is also great. The phone is fast and with the Samsung transfer the contents of my old phone transferred in about 20 minutes. If you liked the previous Note phones I highly recommend this one.

    This is the best phone I have ever had proved to be the best choice for What I need. It helps me to keep all my stuff organized and sync with other devices. I no longer nee to use a tablet as Note 8 can be multipurpose in many ways. I am particularly satisfied by the battery life for such a large display. It lasts usually for two days of unlimited usage.

    I have been desiring to own a galaxy phone. I came to feel in love with Galaxy note 8 and I couldn't have bought it any other place than BestBuy because I have been buying all my electronics stuff from the best buy for a long time. The phone is serving me good. Thank you.

    It's gonna take A WHOLE lot for any manufacturer of smartphones to top this one! With 6GB of RAM and expandable memory to 256GB this thing has better performance than any full sized computer I've used. Had mine for a month and I'm still finding out cool new features it has. My wife loved it so much that I had to get her one too because she'd never let me play with it.

    Bought this for my wife, since she needed a new phone, and she hasn't been disappointed, except with the Live Messaging feature, which she was hoping to use to send me handwritten notes/drawings on my Samsung S7 Edge. No go...the feature ONLY works between Note 8 phones. and of course, she doesn't know anyone else with the same phone.

    I have had many Samsung phones. This one by far is just simply incredible. I also have an S8 for traveling purposes. I thought the S8 would be tough to beat. The Note 8 is king!! Trust me when i say this.....forget Apple.....there is no better phone out there......even the iphone X can't complete. The phone is a little pricey but it will not disappoint.

    This is the best phone out there provided you have a need for the S-Pen. I use the S-Pen a lot for work marking up photos to send to clients and coworkers. The phone is snappy, smooth UI, fantastic camera, tons of space, expandable storage, the works, if you dont have a need for the S-Pen, you will be perfectly happy with the S8+/S9+ models and save some cash.

    The best phone I have ever had

    I absolutely love this phone. The pen works really well and was the main reason I even considered spending so much on a cell phone. Some things that I have noticed is the phone is taking awhile to learn the autofill words, but it seems to be improving. I text in three languages; it always would revert to the closest English match, so it has required A LOT of retyping.

    Great Phone - Painful switch from Apple

    The Samsung Note 8 is great, but the switch from Apple to Android has been made especially painful by Apple. I can no longer administer my iCloud accounts, my music is inaccessible, and iMessage keeps taking messages that go nowhere. If you've never had an apple phone, don't buy one. If you have one and want to switch to Android, be prepared for a long battle.

    So far I really like this device. The improved S pen is just a plus to the overall features of the phone. The only concern I have is Bixby.. which sux.. Google voice works so much better. I'm not sure why the change but I absolutely hate Bixby voice command. It doesn't understand anything I say. Google on the other hand understands everything I say.

    the note 8 does some great stuff over the note 5 and the note 7. Great for anyone really looking to be productive with their device with the pen. I think my favorite feature is if you buy the Samsung DeX, you can get the "full feature" experience of a samsung smartphone. It's a good take on Android with all of its hardware design features compared to the google.
