While it might not have the fancy edge-to-edge display of the new Note 10 line, Samsung's 2017 Note model still packs a punch. It's equipped with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and has 6GB of RAM on-board. There's 64GB of internal storage which is plenty for most people, but you can use its microSD card slot to expand its storage by a further 256GB if you choose to do so. There's also a gorgeous 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 8MP selfie camera, and a dual 12MP rear camera setup. It's IP68-rated for dust- and water-resistance, has support for Samsung Pay, and comers with the multifunctional S Pen stylus.

The Note 8 got a 4 star out of 5 rating in our review which commended its huge display and top-end specs at the time. If you don't need all of the flashy new features of the S10 or Note 10 phones — and don't want to spend the best part of $1,000 to get in the door with those models — the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an affordable alternative. This deal is good for today only, though.
