- Samsung Galaxy Note 8- February 26, 2018
VERY, VERY, VERY, unhappy with the battery life. My Note 8 lasts, MAYBE, 3 hours with normal, not excessive usage of apps, videos, music, etc. Cannot believe Samsung did that to us... :'(:-( Along with the battery life being so poor, it forces me to carry around my fast charger & charger cord, EVERYWHERE, & I mean EVERYWHERE, I go. Unfortunately, just recently, like within the last month, my Note 8 no longer fast charges & I receive pop-up notifications stating that the "charger connected is not working". Therefore, it charges exceptionally slow, or on my lucky days, at a normal rate. VERY, VERY disappointed, Samsung. You REALLY need to fix this.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Best Phone So Far- January 21, 2019
Pros: So far this is the best phone I've ever had. Functionality is stellar and battery life is great. Cons: It's huge, so it doesn't fit in a lot of pockets. Mixed: The curved screen enables some cool functionality and design. However, when combined with its massive size, I broke 5 different glass screen protectors just sitting in my pocket. The phone is so big that it will flex just a little bit. The glass screen protectors couldn't take it and would eventually start a crack that would spiderweb over a few days. I switched to a soft screen protector, which is better, but has trouble sticking to the curved edges.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great phone but I couldn't get used to it- November 15, 2017
I took the plunge and decided that I would upgrade to the Note8 instead of the apple 8+. I was dedicated to my decision and was going to stick it out for the first year and see it through. Then 10 days in I couldn't handle it any more. There were things that the iphone did that the note8 didn't or maybe I couldn't get it figured out. I have nothing against the phone, the screen is amazing, the camera is top notch. It does feel cheap in the casing, the round edge was a negative, I couldn't get the glass screen protector because it would bubble in the middle of the screen and that lessened the touch sensitivity. Overall I can't dog the phone. Apple is just my preference.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
