Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is officially in stores today, igniting what will no doubt be a feisty holiday season against Apple’s iPhone X. The stylus-equipped phone can be purchased at several retail locations, including Best Buy and Target, along with a handful of carrier stores.
The Note 8’s official release comes after the device enjoyed a very successful preorder period, in which Samsung said demand was higher than any Note handset before it. The device’s arrival comes after last year’s disastrous Note 7 recall, which saw faulty batteries catch fire.
While most would-be Note 8 owners have already made up their mind about the device, seeing it arrive in stores will give consumers the opportunity to test the handset in person.

Earlier this month, Tim Baxter, president and chief executive officer, Samsung Electronics North America, released a statement about the Note 8’s early preorder success.
“We’re thrilled to see the strong consumer response to the next level Note,” Baxter said. “Today’s consumers want to do bigger things in work and life, and Note helps make that possible. We built the Note8 for people who desire a device that lets them be productive and allows for self-expression.”
