    Oh my GOD this thing is absolutely AMAZING!!

    I got mine on September 14th through Best Buy because they were releasing them 1 day before the 15th as an employee found a loop hole and took the pre-order on the 14th and sold it as a "Shelf Item" and I got not one but 2 of them. I chose the grey for myself and the black one is just sitting there doing nothing and is not being used. Everyone I know including myself has an Apple but I gave my iPhone 7 to my daughter and yes I did have withdrawals from it but this Note 8 does things that Apple and others just can not do. The first 3 days I was looking to head back to the store and just return these 2 phones and pay the $70 to return both of them but I said to myself to give it a chance before you throw something that I may enjoy. Look when I bought my first BMW M3, I ordered the car because my car got recalled and I waited for it to be built because they didn't have any cars that I wanted. After I got the M3 it was not just get in put your seat belt on and drive off. The car was extremely hard to drive the first couple of weeks as I was not getting it. The phone is like the M, they are both absolutely fricken awesome but if you are new to it, the complications or options of the product can be overwhelming and so that is why I gave this Samsung Note 8 a chance and I am so glad that I did not go back to the herd of sheep. The deal I got was insane and on the 2nd phone I didn't even have to pay sales tax because you can't tax free not to mention both phones only cost me $250.00. The reason why is that I had 2 old phones hanging around and one of them was my kids and she's like what are you doing with my phone?!! I said, You are grounded for not doing your chores!!" She got mad as any 14 year old does and I took her iPhone SE backed it up and when I got home instead of giving her the Samsung Note 8, I gave her my 1 year old iPhone 7 with a nice Otto cover/case and she was stoked. AT&T has a program where if you turn in your old phones you can get $300.00 each for them up to 2 phones and they have to be on the list they provide on their site and they have to be worth at least $20 bucks in value. So I got $600.00 back from AT&T and I asked them to just apply it to my bill. I made out like a fricken bandit all thanks to doing my homework about the product and who to go with. Anyway, going back to the phone.....It takes great if not perfect pictures. This is not a $5,000 dollar camera but it sure feels like it. I took a video of the Blue Angels as they flew over my home today and I played it back and this phone is 10 times better than any iPhone I have ever owned. All is said was, "Record Video" and instantly it did as I heard the 4 of them coming up from behind my house in a blue diamond formation. See it's the little things in life that makes people happy and the phone is worth every penny even if you pay $920 to $960 dollars for it. The iPhone 8, 9 or 10 is nothing to write home about. I had to watch the Apple Keynote and when I saw the face recognition go bad and not work, my instinct and gut said like what Bruce Buffer says at the main event fights.......It's TIME!!!! Yup it's time for a change and honestly no other phone that I looked at even comes close not even the brand I grew up with and that is SONY and they make some great products as I am going to buy a $12,000 tv from them or Samsung and I may have to go with the SONY on that one. LOL.... Sorry for the long post. I have only one regret about the phone and it's my fault not Samsung's. And it is not a fault but it is what many people do and that is to nit pick. THE SAMSUNG NOTE 9 and the SAMSUNG GALAXY 9 is coming out in about 6 months and the Note 9 and then also a foldable phone from Samsung which is going to be the biggest punch ever to the entire industry Apple or not. The 9 models are going to be so premium and make the phones we have now seem like a beginners phone, but until then I will enjoy this bad boy and just upgrade and I have to sell this unused Note 8 if I don't break mine. I didn't buy insurance so I am keeping the phone not to sell but just in case something happens to it like I break it big time, lose it or have it stolen somehow.

    Not Happy with phone and customer service!!!!

    I'm not happy with the phone. It's doesn't really fit with me. I feel also it's very glitchy and for some reason when taking a pic the screen goes red especially when I'm trying to take a close up image. Also, the s pen falls out very easily and i ended up losing it. Anyways, it's not a horrible phone I can live with it. What really upsets me tho is how best buy handled it when I tried to return it. So best buy policy is that you have 14 days to return it. I decided to return it on day 13. I figured it should be easy cause I have never had any issues with returning anything at BB. I buy a lot at and I even go out of my way to drive to a different store to purchase something instead of just going somewhere else close by. I have always experience great customer service until I tried to return this phone. The moment i mentioned returning the phone I kept getting tossed around the store. Going from the return section to the sales section and each time waiting 20 mins to be waited on. The moment i told them the s pen fell out the sales guy Brandon went to ask his manager if he could return it, they told me i could no longer return it because Samsung requires the phone to be returned in the state it was purchases. I asked if I could just buy another pen then. They said that only Samsung online sells them right now and that I would have to get one from them in order to return it. Since it would at least 2 days to get it there's no way I could return my phone. They told me to go to AT&T and try with them. So the next day I did and they told me i couldn't cause it wasn't purchased thru them. They couldn't understand why BB couldn't return it cause they would if I purchased it thru them. So I tried again to return to BB hoping maybe someone else could help me but the same manager was there and again told me that i couldnt return it without the pen. I went to put in a complaint at the service desk and that same manager said all he could do was give me a discount on the other items i purchased. I was so upset I didn't care about the money, I just wanted to return it so I could get a different phone that would suit me better. They told me how jealous they were that I have it and that it's the best phone out there and that I should be happy to have it. A couple days later i decided to ask online and they told me i shouldve been able to return it with a deduction for the s pen. So now I don't know who to believe but I do know that I'm never buy a phone from BB again. I still don't like it and it does have glitches but AT&T said that when a newer phone is available they will trade it in. It's just annoying that I had to go thru this at my favorite store. It makes me not want to buy from BB. :(

    Apple can't touch Samsung

    I made my switch from Apple to Samsung back in 2013, I was tired of Apple and how useless their phones are, limited and way behind android powered phones. I bought the note 3 and the gear watch and I knew this was perfect for me. After I upgraded to the note 5 and now I own the note 8. First of all this phone has the best screen in the game, huge and yes this phone is long, but it's perfect for me and I don't have the largest hands. Samsung's UI has improved a lot over the years, this phone unlike the X has headphone jack, expandable memory, fast wireless charging, freedom to customize S-pen that comes in handy and an amazing camera even better than the X. The price is expensive but Samsung always includes a free gift with their phones I got a free 360 camera. And for my note 5 I got headphones, wirless charger and a fast battery pack. Samsung always giving you something new with their phones. You won't regret getting this phone. I'm buying one for my mom because she isn't happy with Apple. My girlfriend got the S8 and she's happy with her new phone and regrets not getting a Samsung phone sooner. Overall satisfied with this phone it's amazing and people are always amazed that I can pay with my phone and it doesn't require a NFC terminal, also Samsung Pay gives you points toward rewards, gift cards.

    I have owned every Galaxy S/Note device with the exception of the Note 3. The 7 I do not count because it would have been returned anyway :-( but I almost bought it. Thank God it did not work out. Then Note 8 is a fantastic device. I purchase one for my wife when they first went up for preorder. I was like I am going to wait and see what Apple wants to do before I take the plunge. I work for AT&T so I get the inside scoop on these devices. Well after watching Apple go over the Iphone 8 I was like get to the real release. I already knew what the Iphone X was going to look like but I just wanted to see Apple present it to us. While they were going over the device and features I politely pulled up BestBuy's sight and ordered my Note 8. The phone just looks amazing compared to Apple’s offering. Plus you are getting a free SD card for memory and a wireless fast charger or 360 camera. Your choice. Apple is great at what they do but they are just behind a few years. Plus they do not include everything you need in the box. Why would I need another adapter to unlock fast charging. Forgot to mention the other reason I was stoked on this deal. BestBuy gave $100 off the installment. AT&T then allowed you to trade in any device that has at least $20 value for $300. Device did not need to be in working condition. On top of that they have the BOGO deal for all Directv customers. That means I will get $750 off one of the devices. I didn't even mention the S pen because either you love it or hate it but it’s great to have when you need it. The fingerprint scanner could have been placed in a better spot but it actually works out after using it a few times. I have small hands by the way but the device is not all that big. So to recap. Free SD card and wireless fast charger, $600 in trade ins (Broken LG G4 & Broken Note 3), normal fast charger included in the box, decent earbuds from the company they purchased and then $750 being paid on one of the devices due to the BOGO deal.

    The Note Is BACK!

    I've been an android user since the first galaxy debuted. More recently I purchased a GS7 EDGE (att) last June. Totally happy with that model, but missed the features of the note. Last time I had one was in 2015, a note 5 that was stolen, considered note 7 in 2016, but was too slow to pull the trigger when they were pulled due to the battery mishaps. I had not planned on replacing my S7EDGE however, I was "browsing" thought to myself " 38.55 a month for 30 months... yikes, I'm totally content with what I have." I still played with the note 8 when in the store, spoke to a Samsung rep I've known for a couple years (used to work for them myself) and was then made aware - I can get the note 8 now, keep my gs7, get 150$ reward zone certs, and 300$ off the device (note8) making it less than 31$ a monty (only about a $3 difference from my gs7) so I figured okay let's do it, I'll have 45 days to decide to return it. The kicker, I ended up getting a SECOND Note 8 totally free (except monthly device access fee) AND DID NOT NEED TO GET DIRECT TV! I've had it for about 3 or 4 weeks and looking back probably would have kept it had I paid normal price, not received a free 2nd Note8, or rewards! This Note is all that and more the NOTE, a Flagship device should be!

    Excellent Phone and Field Tool

    The clarity of the voice connection is excellent. I find that this phone has better reception than the GS8+ and the iPhone 6+. I use it as a tablet with several open apps all at once. I take photos and video of properties, enter these into reports and upload them to the cloud as they are taken. There is no lag nor failure. For certain reporting I take pictures in the highest possible mode for archival purposes but need to insert a lower quality photo into a website while reporting. I have an app that reduces the size. The phone can reduce the size of 80 photos quicker than my 2012 iMac with an i5 processor, fusion drive and 24GB of RAM. The camera works very well, it's the best in my experience for low-light situations. In the end this really depends on the skill level and practice of the user for any phone camera. It easily turns dark rooms into clear pictures. This was my first Note so getting used to the stylus was a little difficult at first. Now I constantly take notes, work on photos and spreadsheets, etc. with it. The more I use the stylus, the more I realize how useful it is!

    Best phone I've owned

    I became a fan of the Samsung Note with the 5. I had one for over 2 flawless years and used it in my work. The ability to write, draw, or make notes on screenshots is a big asset to my job. I do not even take a note pad or tablet to meetings since I started using the Note series phone. I now have a Note 8 only becsuse I dropped my Note 5 in the pool. I didn't think the Note 8 would offer so much to impress me but it does. The phone is fantastic in every application I have used and am still finding more tricks everyday. The camera is incredible, the ease of Android makes it simple. The size is comfortably and location of the command keys excellent. With the addition of Bixby and the Samsung connect capability I easily manage my home from my Samsung Family Hub refrigerator to televisions. The speaker is impressive and the clarity of sound and screen is also great. The Note 8 is a great phone for anyone but especially for anyone who needs the functionality it offers for work. Great phone.

    Started out ok

    So I got my phone 13 days ago. It started out fine was working great until today I noticed two cracks in my screen. I tried contacting Best Buy and went to the store they basically said they would not help me that I had physical damage. I explained that I had not dropped my phone or damaged my phone and had only used the stylus. The cracks in my screen looks like someone took on razor blade to my screen these cracks literally came out of nowhere. I've tried contacting AT&T and Samsung and was basically told you're out of warranty even though I'm in the buyer's remorse period. And now I'm being blamed for the defect damage of this phone which is clearly a defect in this phone. Other than that the phone is probably one of the nicest Samsung's I've had. this is my 6th samsung phone and I have never had an issue with the screens cracking I had my S5 for 2 years dropped it multiple times on concrete and marble floors and it has never cracked. this screen on the note 8 is definitely a disappointment. if this is a defect with the screen and the stylist I hope it gets fixed very soon because I am not paying $300 to fix a $900 phone I've had for weeks.
