    I'm very confused by this post. The main reason anyone buy's a Note is because, well first, it's always the best phone on the market when it launches, the incredible S-Pen, and of course THE SCREEN SIZE. If you have little girl hands, or wear those dumb skinny jeans, than yeah maybe you should buy a useless iPhone. It's so annoying when Note owners say the phone feels to big... REALLY!

    It is a big phone and feels a tad heavy, but I LOVE it. I have no issues with it when I go riding- use a very sturdy phone mount on handlebar. When hiking I usually carry it or have in coat pocket. When it's warm out I have a belt clip style holder it goes in. (Can't remember where that is.. been cold so it's probably buried in the car lol).

    I walk two huskies and always have the phone with me during their walks and hikes too-no issues.

    I don't wear skinny jeans I wear comfortable pants - the phone will fit in back pocket of the jeans but rarely stays there long. Also carries well in a hoodie pouch

    This is the reason I kept my regular S8 when I got the Note 8. Well I am 99% sure that I can use my Note 8 anywhere I go, there are times when I am more comfortable with my regular S8.

    What mount do you use?

    I'd be afraid I'd sit on it.

    With the proper holder the note 8 is fine outdoors or indoors. Size is only a factor of you like using a device one handed and holding it in your pocket. I am a contractor and have always carried my devices on my side with a pouch or holster which works great.

    How do you use that mount on a bike?

    In the car, I put the phone in the cup holder.

    Oh sorry. That mount is in the car - on windshield.

    For the bicycle, I have this one. I'd like one that I can use with any case but this one holds up well - I just need to use one of my slimmer cases when attached.

    I've had the Note 8, the iPhone 6 Plus, and the Galaxy S4 and S7 Actives. When I first got the S4 Active, it was a pain b/c I was coming from an iPhone 4S. It was a much bigger phone. I upgraded from it to the iPhone 6 Plus and most of the larger running belts I bought for the S4 Active worked. I did by a few more belts with bigger pouches. The Note 8 fits in all but one of my running belts and has not been annoying at all. My favorite belt is the SPI Belt with the XL pouch.

    The S7 Active was actually the worst to run with because it's not HUGE but it's heavy for its size, thanks to the battery. Also, the physical keys, which I thought I'd never live without, had a way of being activated and unlocking the phone during exercise, no matter that I had all the safeguards against accidental button pushes activated. I once went for a long run and took my Active out to find I had FB messaged about 20 of my contacts a random video of a guy drinking a tropical drink at a beach bar that I have NO IDEA where it came from.

    And I would add, my Note 8 IS in the Otterbox Defender case. I don't find it bulky at all. Can you tell the Active 7 scarred me?
