    Samsung SM-N950F/DS reviews

    Galaxy Note8 SM-N950F Dual-SIM 64GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Midnight Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Who needs and N9 when the N8 is this good, but one thing... My old Note 4 finally reached the end of life and I needed a new phone. After some research, I concluded this was a great replacement for my old AT&T phone. It works great and is fast. The only gotcha I've discovered is that it does not have WIFI-Calling with AT&T because it is not an AT&T specific phone. Maybe there is a fix, but I haven't found it... yet. I like the dual sim, but wish it had a slot for the memory and not have to chose between an extra sim or memory. Otherwise, great phone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Smartphone The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers features that make navigation much easier than other smartphones. The stylus pen and the larger screen make using this phone a snap. The other feature I love is the adjustable background blur that separates the subject from the background. When using this feature for portraiture this is a big deal. The only minor complaint is that the speaker is not as clear as the one on the Galaxy S8. If that is not a problem for you then the Galaxy Note 8 is a terrific bargain at this time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H Note 8 I'm typically not a review kinda guy, but more people need to know about B&H Photo! They go above and beyond what's expected! Just recently bought a note 8 from them. After doing my homework and shopping around, know one could beat their price. Most didn't even come close! On top of that, 2 1/2 days later, I had the phone in my hand! I'm still amazed how fast they got it to me. All in all, I'm glad I made the switch from note 5 to note 8. Much smoother and much faster. Anyone that is questioning make that jump from note 5 to 8, do it. You will not be let down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone Beautiful phone. The phone is good in every way. I just wish the battery last longer but it's still pretty good. I can get through a day no problem. The package came sealed no damage, they included another charging adapter and that was really useful because the one included in the box was a three pin adapter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sublime Ive been away from Samsung for the last few iterations, but its good to be back.  I had forgotten the way Samsung does just about everything better than everyone else.  I dont use Bixby, I prefer Googles assistant, and Im still using the Nova launcher, and also a smattering of Samsung apps that really utilize the S Pen.  The retina scanner, bio-authentication option, works flawlessly, even in complete darkness.  I typically use that or the fingerprint sensor to securely unlock the device.  Using the S Pen is a pure joy.  I cant ever imagine going back to an ordinary smartphone.  These features make this smartphone even smarter.  It’s also one of the most attractive and well-built phones out there, bar none.  A job well done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From Note 3 to Note 8...Wow! Dual sim, quick, great camera all the bells and whistles a fellow could need with an unlocked bootloader and none of the carrier bloat!
    Date published: 2018-09-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade!!! Phone's 4G and call works with AT&T, no known issues. Battery life average about 23 hours on full charge with medium use, light game, internet browsing, texting, etc. Can be extended using power saving mode. Great improvement on S-Pen compare to old Note 3. Very happy with purchase. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I can't say enough good things. Website was easy to use. I spoke to customer service and they were great. Received my phone the next day. It was exactly as described.
