The Good The Galaxy Note 8 tops Samsung's already excellent S8 and S8 Plus with dual cameras and a boatload of stylus tricks. It's the most feature-rich Android phone you can buy.
The Bad An expensive phone, the Note 8 has more features than most people will need. Samsung's portrait mode can be finicky. The poorly placed fingerprint reader repeats the Galaxy S8's worst design flaw.
The Bottom Line The Galaxy Note 8 retakes the throne as the ultimate Android phone for now, but some intense competition is just over the horizon.
Galaxy Note 8 is pricey, powerful and does it all
Editor's note: The Galaxy Note 8 is now on sale in select markets, including the US.
After testing it from San Francisco to Los Angeles and up to Lake Tahoe, I can confidently say that the Galaxy Note 8 is without a doubt Samsung's best, most feature-packed phone.
But it's also deeply burdened. Does it scrub away the bad taste of last year's? Is the battery safe? Does it offer enough over the cheaper and to make it worth the sky-high price? (See prices below.)
