Samsung has had a stellar year with the launch of its stunning flagship Galaxy S8.
With its unique curved design this blockbuster smartphone is on course to win every gong going in 2017.
Samsung unveiled its latest phablet at an event last week and there's plenty of reasons why this new device could take the crown of the best phone of the year.
The S8 and Note 8 both feature a stunning Infinity display, latest processors, wireless charging and decent battery life but which is the really the best?
Express.co.uk has been lucky enough to have them in our hands and here's what we think.
Although the Note 8 looks almost identical to the S8 there are some key differences.
Firstly, unlike the S8, you can only buy the Note 8 in one giant 6.3-inch size.
With its clever bezel-free design, Samsung has been able to keep the overall dimensions down, however, the Note 8 is still a very large device and it won't be for everyone.
If you don't mind its size there are plenty of extras you won't find on the Galaxy S8.
Being a Note smartphone, you'll find a new S Pen stylus tucked inside the base of the device.
This new digital pen is now more accurate and features a waterproof design so you can scribble on the screen when it's wet.
The S Pen also brings new Live Messages to the device which instantly turn handwriting into fun animated GIFS.
Plus a new translate feature means the S Pen can help decipher foreign text with one easy command.
Along with the S Pen is a completely revamped dual-lens camera on the rear of the Note.
Many hoped that Samsung would include a double camera on the Galaxy S8 but this feature never materialised.
Note 8 owners get two 12-megapixel snappers which have a number of neat tricks up their sleeve.
