The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an awesome phone but I think most people would be better off spending their cash an a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+. If you've got the cash for the Note 8 you'll be happy with it but your dollar goes a lot further if you spend it on a Galaxy S8 or S8+.

There are a lot of better smartphones than Samsung Galaxy Note 8 like Oneplus 5t for less $550 because it has 8GB RAM and 128GB STORAGE that is better for us and it comes up with face recognition and fingerprint unlock and better battery lifetime. Second is Huawei Mate 10 because it has 6GB RAM and 64GB storage and it comes up with more battery lifetime. Others like Google Pixel 2, Asus Zenfone 5, Razer phone, Samsung C9 pro, and others has powerful processors, bigger storages, better battery lifetime and of course its figure.
I have an iPhone 7 plus and I'm thinking of swapping to a note. I LOVE big phones, so the note series interests me. The biggest factor for my change is the audio jack. Having to use an external chord to plug in my head phones on the 7+ wasn't an issue until that chord inevitably broke. Turns out you can't just buy any 3rd party replacement, you have to actually buy an Apple approved replacement... which is $30-$40. Fuck that. I'm switching phones instead. iPhones were good phones imo up until they removed the audio jack for some unknown stupid reason.
I'm a college student and I bought the phone forgetting it even had the s pen. Never used it. But One day I was sitting in calculus with no pen or paper and thought 'what the hell' I started taking notes and I haven't used paper in months. He is right the pen is extremely accurate and now I'm able to study anywhere I am because I have my notes where ever I go. Get this if your in school.
Samsung piss me off with the Note 8 with those apps from Galaxy APP; they need to understand we cannot have 2 markets place and play store with Google is enough. Samsung music (when I finish to play a video in youtube or website is not syncing with my car, it just stop where the video was standing. Give me back the Music player!!!) and clock are badly bad. The phone is too long I prefer it larger as tablet, if I need to change my battery I will have to expand another money to do that, the home button in the corner should be on front of the phone. I have Samsung connect that is futile because I already get Google Chromecast (HOME).
Overhaul, I switch from Note 2 (the best phone ever Samsung has been made) to Note 8 and I really regret the move. I hope in the future thing is getting better.
I'm that person who uses their S-Pen constantly! I tuned in to this vid just to see what your objections were, also because I'm debating whether to buy the Note8 now, or wait and see if the Note9 will be a serious upgrade.
So, here's the thing. I really think that people don't use the S-Pen because they don't realize how handy it really is! I got the original Microsoft Surface Pro for some college classes, took all my class notes with the pen on my computer screen, and little by little, liked it more and more.
Here's the thing....I'm neither an artist, nor a "guy with a spreadsheet". lol But I make grocery lists with my S-Pen, write with it instead of keyboarding, use it in gaming where the slim profile lets me see what I'm doing onscreen without my fat fingers in the way, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseum. Not to mention that ALL my devices "talk" to each other, from my Surface Pro to my Note5 to my HP Desktop. It's pretty freakin' great.
And....that's my 2 cents.
Love the Note series. Had a Note 2 and now a Note 5. Won't go with another type until they stop making the Note series. I use my S pen daily for hand written reminders, quickly writing product names down, peoples names/numbers or random stuff when I'm in a hurry. No need to open programs and type stuff in. Just scribble and go. It makes it so easy to screen shot and crop specific items with pinpoint accuracy (no pun intended) Lots of uses besides sketch and documents. Its litetally like having a super compact notepad with an ednless amount of writing space. Pull out the pen and just start writing put it back in and it saves it. Very good mix of tech and manual control. I keep my phones 3-4 years so an extra 300 bucks is definitely worth it for me.
How many times have you been somewhere and needed to hurry and jot something down just to realize you have no pen and no paper. Everyone has run into that. Pull out the pen and without touching anything you can right on the screen. For me the pen is worth it for that alone. I owned the S5, S7 edge and they don't compare with the Note8.
Agree on all the aspects mentioned (Price, necessity....) but got to disagree on the S Pen....it is very useful even if you are not an artist.....taking notes, numbers , references.....makes it easier then typing on the keyboard and looks & feel natural while doing so....Probably not useful for the people carrying a planner and pen everyday.
But thanks for the review awesome intel. Big Fan.
Lol bashing the price...but yet keeps saying it like people buy it straight out like there isn't a thing called installments
I'm sure samsung took into account of the fingerprint sensor position being that there is not 1 but 5 ways to unlock the note8 being: fingerprint, pin/pass, iris,voice, and facial.
On top of that didnt even give full review of the s pen and its feature enough for him to discredit as being a inconvenience.
It's a comparatively great phone with 256Gb, I use the stylus all the time, it's waterproof and the battery life is great.
Only downsides are the difficult to hold screen edges and that dual sim and memory cards can't be used simultaneously. These problems seem to exist on all phones nowadays. I've just ordered the keyboard addon too.
Please make more phones with keyboard, stylus and try to make phone edges more ergonomic.
Lastly what the gentleman does not want to talk about is RAM memory and Storage the Galaxy Note 8 has 64 gig memory with a 32-bit card you can have a hundred gig in no time and this is a very big deal because all applications are sucking storage like never before the RAM memory is never been so big. The only bummer about the Galaxy Note 8 is you cannot change the battery like you can in the other note series but you can still change the memory and you can change the interface which you cannot do on the iPhone. And who says you want to save money? When you're talking about quality and performance money should not be an issue at all yes if you're living in a tent on a tight budget maybe you should not be on a smartphone at all maybe you should go back to a laptop. If you want the best quality on the market Galaxy Note 8 is the phone to have and the latest technology. And who does not want the latest technology and yes you will pay more so start saving your money
I have both the Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 6 + people don't be fooled Samsung Galaxy Note is the best phone on the market it trumps the iPhone in every area even speed even processor the phone is awesome the iPhone is absolutely junk. You have to try the Galaxy Note series to see the difference. The speech-to-text is superb on the Galaxy Note on the iPhone it royally sucks the camera sucks on the iPhone the maps suck on them iPhone the only thing the iPhone really does is speed and Galaxy easily caught up with them with the Galaxy Note 8 this guy can flap all he wants buy the Galaxy Note 8 it's a great great phone
You don't like the note over the s8 but I had my s8+ for 4 months and got the black screen of death. I now own a note 8. There is no better in my opinion. Less battery is not a problem when you have fast charging.
