    Good phone but not the unlocked one

    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 :)

    Heavy, Breakable, No Warranty for brakage

    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.

    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.

    Too smail

    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.

    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.
