Overall, it's not worth to buy! To dearest peoples: don't buy this shadow of GS8 in the name of GN8! Sham on u Samsung xD
Quite large, to handle, and expensive to buy and maintain! Inside it's same as, others except the looks. No way justified 1100$, still nincompoops left!
This is an awesome Set! I have recently bought :D :D Initially I faced and heard complains on battery life but since I went though everything deeply and found that it was set to high configuration so battery was draining fast but now when I set it to MID I felt satisfying! Now I am loving it !
Aadrian, 13 Oct 2017That¬ís cool, it means we both get the phone at the same day probably. I¬ím very curious about it. Had to get mine from Amazon after reading reviews based on Verified Purchases, so I can give one too. Also picked a seller that would ship internationally.
Unfortunately the case I wanted (AlCase) wasn't available for international shipping, so I will have to deal with getting a Nilkin or Otterbox locally.
Can't wait to unbox it
Aadrian, 13 Oct 2017I also ordered a cover right away, haven¬ít ordered tempered glass yet. you need to find a correct one and I suggest one like says "case friendly"

The Otterbox case helps with the width as on the S8 plus. I like the bulk it adds too (from the pics). The sharpness of the screen is well pronounced (compared to the Note 3)
The curved screen is very visible too, experiencing it will conclude my take.
Thanks for sharing!
Note8 has problem taking shots with presence of light source (especially at night), like street lamps, firework, Moon....there is lens flare or ghosting, a bright green spot appear in the photo. This also happen when taking video, the green spot move with the light source (firework).
Service guy said this happen to all Note 8. But i do not know if different units would have different degree of flare. Disappointed with Note 8 camera.

Neighbor, 13 Oct 2017It's 54 out of the 64 GB of internal storage space for the user.More than enough for normal user.

You need to hide your phone when your friend is watching to unlock it.

Tester, 13 Oct 2017What was the available storage out of the box?It's 54 out of the 64 GB of internal storage space for the user.
I am really enjoying the large 6.3" screen. I was looking at my Note 3 yesterday, and man, the tall screen aspect of the Note8 has been quite useful, plus the fact it has the Glance function for easy referencing. Very happy with the change. Just look at the comparison:
I just didn't like the curved side edges that triggered accidental touches. Putting on the OtterBox Defender Case solved that. Speaking of the case, it has great protection but has no kickstand (the external clip is hard to operate) and easily solved it by integrating a Spigen metal kick:
Since battery is average, I solved it with a Scosche magnetic power pack with a USB Type-C connector (yes, attached securely at the back when I need it):

I was really looking for this beast but the problem is me living in UAE where samsung releases Note8 with Exynos chip (which I am not interested at all) and funny part is they are charging same price as compared to SD835 processor.
In UAE in Snapdragon 835 bracket very limited options (Sony XZ premium and XZ1, Nokia 8,One plus 5 and upcoming LG V30),
That means it's time to try iOS.
Aadrian, 12 Oct 2017Friday as in tomorrow Friday? I ordered the same version, black as well. Curious how large it ... moreYes! That's what the tracking says.
Cant wait to handle it and see how practical it is and if it's a work phone for me.
