    Samsung SM-N950F reviews

    Galaxy Note8 SM-N950F 128GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Midnight Gray) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time purchaser - Love it I was skeptical at first about buying a phone from a third party. I normally purchases directly from AT&T. A friend shared this site with me, and I notice how I got more memory and for less the price than at AT&T. I decided to give it a try, and I wasn't disappointed. I received the phone, took it to AT&T for a new SIM card, and everything works great. No hassle from AT&T which is what I was afraid of happening. I was even able to use the Smart Switch app to transfer my contacts, text messages and photos myself. Way to go B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone Luckily I held off upgrading my Samsung Note until the 8. It's just what I wanted. My son communicated with B&H on the phone and was very pleased with the results. Will definitely use them in the future.
