You Have Other Options
At the end of the day, the Galaxy Note 8 is a great phone that almost all buyers will absolutely love. It has everything you'd ever want from a flagship phone and then some.
But so do other phones available today. You have plenty of viable Galaxy Note 8 alternatives you can buy right now or that are coming soon. Additionally, some of these other options have similar specs but a smaller display. One reason you might want to look elsewhere is that the Note 8 is still a big phone. If you have small hands, consider buying something else.
The Galaxy S8+ is nearly identical with a 6.2-inch screen, so only a hair smaller. And while it doesn't have the S-Pen or second camera, everything else remains. In fact, the Galaxy S8+ has a big 3,500 mAh battery compared to only 3,300 mAh in the Galaxy Note 8. So it will last longer throughout a busy work day and still delivers nearly the same amazing experience for $200-300 less.
Or, if the Note 8 is too big and the Galaxy S8 is too small, consider the 6-inch LG V30 that is coming soon. That phone has plenty to offer and might be a good middle ground in terms of specs, size, and more importantly price.
The Galaxy Note 8 is a phone that you will absolutely love, but so are countless others available right now -- including the $479 OnePlus 5.
