Samsung’s Galaxy Note series phones have set benchmarks for the company, featuring the absolute best it has to offer in terms of mobile technology. The big differentiating factor from the S series has been bigger screens and the  S-Pen stylus, and this formula has worked well for Samsung for years now. However, ever since the Galaxy S6 Edge+, the company has been fragmenting its S series too, offering multiple sizes, thereby slowly bridging the gap between the S and the Note series.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Summary

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is slightly taller and heavier than the S8+, but simply feels better built and more solid in your hand. The 6.3-inch Quad HD+ display is gorgeous and produces excellent contrast. The S-Pen now has a finer tip and is IP68 certified. You can use it to create hand-drawn GIFs, translate words, and search the web with Bixby Vision. This phone is powerful too thanks to the Exynos 9 Octa SoC and 6GB of RAM. The dual rear cameras are a first for the company and let you do things like Live Focus, which adds a pleasing bokeh effect behind your subject. The main sensor delivers excellent detail, both in daylight and at night. Battery life could have been better and we struggled to get a full day’s worth of usage out of each full charge.

  • Better than my Wife's Apple X
    Wes Lennon (Jan 9, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I've been using Cell Phones since the old "Bag Phones", this is the best I have used. Will never buy another Apple. With the Dex Dock and charger, I can use this pone to connect to my 70" Samsung or other TV's (with HDMI extra port). With Dex, you can also add a keyborad and mouse if you want.

  • Dissatisfied features
    Seta Tetseo (Oct 1, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    It's processor is okay. But it's camera could be better; front camera is okay but the rear camera should have come with at least 16 mp according to its price. The style and display is great. Battery could be better. I'm really disappointed in camera. My cousins wants to buy this phone but I told them not to buy it coz it's camera is bad. Photos goes blur in 100 metre distance.
