Not only is this the biggest Note yet, it's Samsung's biggest flagship smartphone ever released. Taking the beautiful design aesthetic many loved from the Note 7 or Galaxy S8, and they super-sized it. 

The Galaxy Note 8 has a massive 6.3-inch Curved Infinity Display with tiny bezels around the screen. What that means is there are no longer big black bars on the top, bottom and sides of the phone. Instead, it's almost nothing but screen on the front.

A 6.3-inch screen sounds massive and way too big to hold, but it isn't. That's because the smaller bezels and a new aspect ratio actually make the Note 8 easy to hold and use. Even with this huge screen, it's only a tiny bit taller than the Galaxy Note 7 or Galaxy Note 7. Samsung ditched the home button (and put it on the back) and made the phone a little taller and not as wide. As a result, it looks gorgeous, has curved edges, yet is still manageable with one hand. 

The Note 8's display is a 2960 x 1440 Quad-HD+ SuperAMOLED Display with curved edges just like the Galaxy S8. Meaning it has the best screen on the market, only a little bigger than the rest.
