Best Phone Under $1000 – Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Snapdragon 835 / Exynos 8995 processor
12 MP dual camera
3300 mAh battery
1440 x 2960 pixels screen with 521 PPI
Samsung Desktop Experience support

Best Build - Galaxy Note 8

The Galaxy Note 8 is not only the successor to the unlucky Note 7 but also the Best Samsung phone available. The phone brings together a powerful processor and highly capable hardware to create a compelling package that I believe makes it the best phone currently available.

While the Pixel 2 XL and iPhone X are great smartphones, the Note 8 brings the whole package without an unnecessary omission of an important feature. Yes, this phone still has a headphone jack. It is clear how much time was spent designing it as well, there isn’t a part that was left untouched, the phone is well designed and clearly portrays the benefits of Samsung’s design language.

A large 6.3-inch screen dominates the front while the phone remains easier to handle than most 6 inch smartphones thanks to its 18:9 aspect ratio. The software is also more refined than before and paired with highly capable hardware it flies through all tasks with ease. A pair of great cameras and a good battery life sealed the deal for me.
