    Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8 (GN8) stands alone as the only flagship smartphone with ‘everything’ including its trademark S Pen stylus, which offers a very convenient and useful handwriting interface.

    • A galactic overachiever! Great dual lens camera, S-Pen, gorgeous 6.2in display and more.
    • Quite long, only a down-firing mono speaker, pricey

    Compared to phones that are at a similar price point, or $200-$300 cheaper, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 has by far the best value for money. The screen, the S-Pen, the camera, the specs and everything else leads to an amazingly smooth performance. Samsung skin on top of Android has improved as well. Read more
