Extremely happy with my Note 8. I liked it so much I bought 2. Samsung did include a few nice gifts that I'm very happy with.
A few words of caution though:
Don't even open the box without having a screen protector and something to protect the back of it. I had mine out for just a few days unprotected and the rear glass scratched significantly on all 4 corners and the plastic around the camera cluster from only laying it on my Formica top night stand. Also the metal bezal was dinged from a minor drop in my vehicle. So in my opinion it is a delicate device.
All in all it is an amazing device and I highly recommend it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
