The Curved Screen is Fragile
While the big 6.3-inch curved Infinity display looks amazing, it's also really fragile. In fact, both the front and the back of this phone has curved glass that meets the sides of the device. This makes it comfortable to hold and use, but it also makes the Galaxy Note 8 and its curved screen fragile.
One drop could easily be all it takes to crack or shatter the screen. If you're not interested in investing $1,000 into a device you might break, we'd understand.
And while there are plenty of Galaxy Note 8 screen protectors available, it's still a risk some want to consider. If so, devices like the edge-to-edge but completely flat LG G6 come to mind.
