Rated 4 out of 5 by from The great media combine After Galaxy S7 Galaxy Note 8 feels a little bit bulky as a media combine the telephone is great. I experienced the following problems: - Unreliable work with the memory card regularly loses an access to it; - Voluntary disconnection from a network at standby mod; - Spontaneous switching to the loudspeaker during a call; - The protective glass is more prone to damage than at the Galaxy S7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phone and Mini Computer plus Great Camera I have had the Samsung Note 8 for some 10 months now and am absolutely delighted with this phone. It is with me all waking hours providing me with my emails on the move, access to TV and weather info, plus instant Google access. The twin lens camera (plus forward facing lens) is excellent and takes high quality photographs with the rear lenses. I used to lug a large camera bag around but not now as the Note 8 takes good photos even in low light although moving objects may be blurry in low light. Oh, it also handles phone calls and texts!! The battery life holds up reasonably but if being used extensively for video and the like top up charging may be needed. I have the Samsung wireless Inductive rapid charge stand which is excellent. My "normal" daily use for emails, texts and calls uses about 60% battery life without top-up charging. I did purchase the Samsung bespoke case which pairs with the phone to turn it on when you open it. Having dropped the phone several times the case has done an excellent protection job. This Note 8 is my constant companion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Take note of the Note.. 5 stars!! Got this last week at an absolute steal price of £649..Purchased SIM free as I couldn't resist the price and sold my S8 privately for £400 smackeroos. chuffed to bits with my new device, screen, s pen, camera, battery and a whopping 6gb ram & water resistant. Its literally like having a mini laptop in your pocket. True powerhouse, amazing specs that will hands down compete with the current market for years to come.
