About the Product
Photos are clear with less blur on the world's first Dual Camera with Optical Image Stabilization on both lenses of the Samsung Galaxy Note8. With the powerful built-in S Pen, take notes without unlocking your screen, handwrite messages and make GIFs. This Samsung Galaxy Note8 comes with a long-lasting 3300mAh battery.
Our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen. One so immersive the device itself disappears into the experience. And so intelligent it can respond to a tap, your voice, and even a glance. With iPhone X, that vision is now a reality. Say hello to the future.

What customers say about "Processor"
Samsung Note 8 (SM-N950F/DS) Factory Unlocked Phone - 6.3" Screen - 64GB - International Version
  • The processor is snappy and fast. 6 GB of RAM means lots of multi-tasking.
  • 6gb ram wow !! Faster processor and high quality pictures and lots.....! We like it because whatever I need I can do at my phone
  • The main thing I love is the performance. With 6gb of ram this thing never slows down.
  • The Note 8 is flawless in every way. Definitely worth the money. It is everything you would expect from a phone with 6Gb of RAM. That's something that could be easily compared to a laptop.
Apple Iphone X 64GB GSM Unlocked
  • The processor is amazing! Best iPhone Apple has ever made!
  • Amazing pics and fast processor. Love the animal taking emojis.
  • The new processor/CPU is very fast can handle any task or multiple task very well. The Face ID works good so far
  • The phones processor is lightening fast with no lag time at all. The facial rec works unbelievably fast and accurately. While riding in the car last night in the dark, it still unlocked my phone.
  • For being the new IPhone "generation X", it has a slow processor & the camera has a delayed caption

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Note 8 (SM-N950F/DS) Factory Unlocked Phone - 6.3" Screen - 64GB - International Version
  • I bought this phone mainly because of the S-pen. It allowed me to grade my students' tests digitally without carrying around papers. And it does that job masterfully.
  • Factor in the Note 8's longer battery life, higher resolution display, significantly brighter display, deeper water resistant rating, S-pen, home button, finger print scanner, bigger screen, no rear camera bump, micro SD upgradable memory, 6gb of ram, etc..
  • Nice camera, Bixby beats Suri, large infinity screen, fast charger
  • It is thin and waterproof and has duel camera on back for crystal clear pictures and too many formats to mention.
  • The device is awesome, the only setting/ feature I dislike is the fingerprint scanner next to camera
Apple Iphone X 64GB GSM Unlocked
  • Speakers at both ends of the phone make noticeably better sound when watching video.
  • Operating without a home button does not take long to get used to.
  • The face ID is really solid I have only have to not recognize me when I have my aviator sunglasses on.
  • Very easy to take accidental screenshots.
  • The no home button does take some getting use too but its pretty easy transition.
  • Best iphone so far... easy to use and only complaint is no bluetooth headphone included

What customers say about "Power"
Samsung Note 8 (SM-N950F/DS) Factory Unlocked Phone - 6.3" Screen - 64GB - International Version
  • The phone hasn't slowed down one bit and I can actually use the phone all day off one charge.
  • So far great upgrade from the note 5. Everything runs smooth and great battery life. Actually getting a full day of use on 1 charge.
  • Such an amazing phone, battery life is unreal, charge time is blazing fast
  • The battery last the whole day, probably sometimes you going to need to charge during the day but that's not a problem with the fast charger.
Apple Iphone X 64GB GSM Unlocked
  • The OLED screen is a game changer and the battery life is heads and shoulders better than an iPhone 7.
  • Fast, reliable and the battery lasts me all day.
  • The only thing I don’t like is how long it takes to get a full charge.
  • Battery is not as long Life as iPhone 6s
