    Yep awesome phone! just one big problem that's right the phone is too big to carry, I use a belt clip and it's just to much felt like I was carrying a brick around.
    So going to downgrade to sothing smaller that will fit my pocket.

    Aww, sad to see you go. Do what is right for you. Note8 gets heavy sometimes when I hold it too long but ain't no way I'm giving it up. Love my note8. Good luck

    A little confusing. The Note 8 may not be belt clip friendly but it is pocket friendly. Why downgrade if you are ditching the clip?

    In all honesty the Note 8 is the largest Note ever, and they've always been one of the biggest phones available.

    I downgraded in size to the S7 last year to have something more pocket friendly after using the N2, N3, N4, N5. Not only that but the constant stretching of my thumb actually caused pain and discomfort, and it went away a few weeks after switching to a smaller phone.

    Well the note is a two handed device and a big phone if you have small hands it wouldn't be good anyway

    Oh I don't know. I have really small hands and hand problems as well, and while I, too, find it feels heavy after using it for a long time, mostly it hasn't bothered me at all. It's a two handed phone. I occasionally put it in the top pocket of my jean jacket but it does stick up more than I like. Usually it's in my purse in the front zipper compartment, and I had my earphone in, playing music that way yesterday. It really isn't a lot bigger than the Note 7 at least not in hand. Or it doesn't feel that much bigger, to me. I love it.

    I will never get rid of my Note 8 but then I also have several other smaller phones that I can use for times when I don't want the big phone. I spent the entire day with my family yesterday and brought my S7 Edge with me and left my Note 8 and S8+ home. It's nice to have choices and a big phone isn't right for every occasion, especially when going out at night to some places.

    Like someone else said, being a two handed smartphone user, thus far the size doesn’t seem to be an issue.

    Albeit, certainly buy what works for you...

    HTC U11! Do yourself the favour that is the only smaller phone I'd get.

    Funny story: I did the same thing. Pre-ordered the note. Had it a few days. Took it back because I felt it was too big. Went back to my S8. Over the next week I completely missed the bigger screen and the pen and the camera, so I bought the Note 8 again. Happy as can be now. Yes, it's big and harder to pocket, but I decided I can live with that for all that I get with the Note 8.
    I guess I'm saying, if you change your mind in a few days, don't be surprised. We will welcome you back with open arms!

    195 grams for Note 8 vs. 188 grams for Iphone 7 Plus.

    Pretty sure my iPhone 6s plus was heavier than my note 8

    That's because the iPhone + is 3 mm wider than the Note 8. I never liked the iPhone + because I felt it too big anyways... going taller than the iPhone I don't think was the right direction.

    Wish they made it an inch shorter. I think Apple sized the X perfectly between the their regular 8 and +. I think LG hit the sweet spot with their V30 size and still maintain 2:1 ratio.

    Samsung is still rumored to have a a flagship foldable phone coming out soon, last I heard. Maybe that's a better option?
    I would never temporarily use a "lesser" phone because of the size. It's Note8 or bust for me. I carry my phone in my phone pocket. So, I don't have any issues with a phone being 1 cm taller. This is such an improvement over the S8, if size was an issue, I am not sure what I would choose.

    When I pre-order in the T-Mobile store, they had some flip phones. Those would be perfect belt clip phones.

    Sorry to hear you had to return it. I also use a belt clip holster, the exact same one I used for my S7E. So to me, it's not much bigger than the phone I was using. A bit taller, but same width.
