    I bought this phone from the Best buy website in Deepsea Blue. I've wanted a Note for years, and I finally took the leap. As a professional artist, I was looking forward to the s pen, but worried I'd miss features I had gotten used to on my LG G4 (like app pairing, layering, manual camera modes with macro, white balance, etc). I was also comparing this phone to the LG V30, which shoots in modes my brother uses in his work on movie and tv sets. My big concerns were productivity, creative functionality, and, of course, battery life. I'm so glad I took a chance on this phone (in this color! Hey- color matters to me). I got the things I loved most about my LG and more. The camera is awesome, and though I couldn't find the info in any of the reviews I read and watched (they all focused on the dual camera and auto modes), this phone DOES have a pro mode with ISO, white balance, macro, etc.. It also has voice activated shutter and video shooting modes. I got new tools that help me multitask with ease. S pen translate, glance, Bixby, and more help me manage online stores, edit text and images, and social accounts on the go. I'm not as chained to my computer with this phone. I love that. I'd be lying if I said the phone was 100% flawless, so in the name of balance, I will share that I have encountered occasional lag. Not enough to worry me (or pry it out of my hands), but if I recommended this phone to a friend, I would tell them this. Can't really think of much else, and I'm trying to find something to complain about... Oh- I will say that I believe the Bixby AI, though very cool, may be interfering with Google voice on my unit. I've tried looking around online, and seen that other folks are having the same issue. I think there's a workaround that fixes it, but I haven't found it yet. Google voice search works, but I have to tap it to wake it up. For reference, my brother bought his Note 8 a few days before me, he uses both Bixby and Google, and he hasn't had a problem with activating Google search with his voice. Again, not enough to turn me off this device. Battery life has been good, though not as insane as the first few charges, which lasted for DAYS, but really, the first few days I was still spending half my time on my old phone, so screen on time was less. I don't game, but I do spend a lot of time scrolling, writing, reading, editing, etc. I'm a woman with medium sized hands, and though the length of this phone concerned me, with the button placement on the back, I'm getting accustomed to it. It helped to put a Popsocket on my case. Overall I'd have to agree with my brother. Best phone I've ever owned.

    Originally I bought it on Friday, December 1st. It was $100 off of the price of the phone with the installment plan via Sprint. I wanted the phone, and any money off is good money right? Right. So I get the phone. I ask the guy, what if it goes on sale really soon? Can I get the price difference? He said I can, but I'd have to return the phone, and get a different one to get it at the new sale price and pay $35 restocking fee. (This was what I had read everywhere online as well.) So low and behold, Sunday, December 3rd, phone is now $300 off! Obviously worth paying the $35 fee! So I go down there, make sure I have all my accounts (Samsung and Google backed up. All pics moved to my SD card so I don't have to worry about those. I have SMS Backups take care of all my texts and phone logs.) trade in the phone with no problems and get the new one at the $300 off. The best buy I took it to was amazing. Now on to the phone. Seriously, amazing. It doesn't really feel that big when you are holding it compared to my s7 edge that I had before. The s-pen is amazing to write with. But the screen is larger, and honestly, even though it is slightly curved, I still think it is less curved than the s7 edge and I liked that. Definitely worth it. The extra ram makes my phone go so fast. I really have to remember to close apps (just because they drain battery power) the phone itself has no problem having a million different apps open. This phone does so much though you really do need to watch videos from youtube to get the gist of it all. (Like SakiTech's video. 200+ tips/tricks for the Note 8.) Anyway, best phone. Pretty sure I've made the conversion for life. Now I'm in the Note family, don't think I can go back to the S family. Sorry guys ;)

    some bugs and buy online

    Made the mistake of purchasing at best buy location before checking online. Sales rep did not mention the free 3d camera you could get with purchase of phone. Called best buy and went by store and both said I would have to return phone and pay a $35 restock fee, then buy a new one and pay another activation fee. So, no free camera it seems. lesson here is check online since they wont inform you at the store of any specials they have going. Even the different store I went into today did not advertise the free camera. as for the phone itself. Have had a few bugs I don't like. had to clear notifications for certain apps, ie, web browser showing a 2 over icon, when I click to clear, it took going in and out a few times to make it vanish. Have had issues with a few phone calls where I cant hang up after call. The hang up button turns back into a call button. Have to show all active apps and then close the phone app to hang up the call. screen write is nice, but now to you have to double tap bottom of screen, then put in passcode or finger print to get into phone. Make you run through that additional step which can be annoying. I activated the face recognition but half the time it doesn't recognize me, esp in low light condition or if I have my reading glasses on. Ati $900 it is pretty pricey, but if they cant fix the few bugs I am running into I think I will still like the phone, just disappointed in best buys handling of their promotions. So much for a price guarantee from them.

    The phone is great. I am still figuring things out. The phone is fast even when using LTE. The S pen screen off note taking is great for taking quick notes without having to unlock the phone and open the app. Bixby is pretty cool but, as others have noted the button is too close to the volume control. The camera is great.I use the entertainment mode which provides full screen resolution and audio. I have yet to have the battery run empty through the course of the day. My only complaint is that if I have the phone in my pocket with the screen facing my leg I've downloaded apps and opened apps and web pages without even knowing it. The other complaint doesn't have to do with the phone it concerns Best Buy itself. When I purchased the phone I was supposed to receive a $25.00 reward certificate. I'm still waiting for it. I will be contacting Best Buy to see what the problem is.

    I've been a Note owner since the Note 2 and couldn't wait until the Note 8 came out. My Note 5 stopped working and I had to use the S7 edge for a few months. I pre ordered my Note 8 through Best Buy website and got my phone on the 8th of September, which was a welcomed surprise. I purchased the Defender and Zagg screen protector to compliment my Note. The phone connects flawlessly to my Gear S3 classic and Galaxy Tablet A with S Pen. The Samsung Themes are a welcome change, but the memory management is a little disappointing. The camera is a delightful upgrade. The Note 8 didn't come with the Microsoft Office Suite pre loaded, but I still have access to it and was able to download it. Wasn't happy with the lockscreen clock, but was able to fix it to a workable solution. Not a fan of Bixby, but we will grow to like one another. I love the ability to take notes without turning on the screen. The fingerprint position is awkward to set, but once you've reached 100%, it's issue free. I'm glad they removed the home button and I have the ability to hide it.

    I've been purchasing Samsung phones since '01. Samsung never fails to amaze me. This phone has blown me away. I gave it a test at a festival that was an all day and night event. Videos, features, and pictures have amazing quality. The best thing that stood out with this phone is the battery. Yes we know they had a lot of flack about the Note 7's battery issue but man did they make up for it. I started recording, taking pics at 98% and ended with 45% by the end of the night.. That's 12:30pm -10:45pm without charging..Wow! I love this phone. The design, power, battery life...I can go on. Samsung did a great job by focusing on the consumers feedback! So go out and purchase one. It's a definite must buy!!

    AMAZING upgrade from a Note 4

    Wow, what can I not love about this phone. I've been a Samsung phone owner for many years, starting with the S3. I opted to upgrade my Note 4 to the Note 8 with this purchase and got the pretty blue version. The phone is quality through and through. I like the beveled glass, and side menu option - very cool. The camera is a huge improvement over the Note 4 and automatically takes great pictures in all situations. I didn't need to call my service provdier to enable the phone as instructed by the Best Buy Customer Service person and piece of paper given to me at pickup time. I just had to turn the phone on, and follow the prompts. I ordered this phone online for pick-up and that's the first time I used that service - I will definitely do that again - so much better than waiting to find a service representation to help you, and then wait in line to purchase, etc - just show up to the pick-up counter, and they retrieve the item for you - check you out and you're done!

    This was an upgrade from the Samsung Note Edge. I was only hesitant because of the bixby button & the placement of the fingerprint reader. You have to go into a store for yourself to actually feel the phone to see if it's a fit for you. The bixby button doesn't stand out as much as I had feared. And now the button can be turned off completely to prevent accidental hitting. Also, my finger is able to reach the fingerprint reader w/o trying to stretch up as some have written. But again, you should test it for yourself to see if it's a good fit for you. My concerns is if the phone will become sluggish after a couple of months; as this is common for Samsung phones. Already after a few days, I'm noticing some glitches with the flow of the UI. I don't know if it's the OS or Nova launcher I'm using.
