What is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8?

If you’re after a big phone, with big phone features then the Note 8 is really the only choice currently. Thankfully, it’s a fantastic device that ticks nearly every box.

Some thought the Note 8 might never happen. After the successful launch and subsequent disastrous recall and discontinuation of the Note 7, which still gets namechecked on some airlines as a banned object, you’d have forgiven Samsung for dropping the Note name and starting again.

There are now two cameras on the back, a first for a Samsung flagship smartphone (the new S9 Plus has it too). … Over the S8 Plus, the Note 8 also benefits power users with 6GB or RAM a superior dual-lens camera, both features passed on to the S9 Plus. This is the most powerful Samsung phone with a stylus yet.

Pros

  •  Stunning design and build

  •  Great screen

  •  Well-implemented stylus and software

  •  Superb cameras

Cons

  •  Average battery life

  •  Wildly expensive

  • 6.3-inch ‘Infinity Display’ redefines the Note look and feel

  • But it’s 9mm taller than any Note phone – it’s the new big

  • Water-resistant up to 1.5m (5ft) for 30 minutes

  • The best color, Deep Sea Blue, only just launched in the US

  • The Good: The Galaxy Note 8 tops Samsung’s already excellent S8 and S8 Plus with dual cameras and a boatload of stylus tricks. It’s the most feature-rich Android phone you can buy.

  • The Bad: An expensive phone, the Note 8 has more features than most people will need. Samsung’s portrait mode can be finicky. The poorly placed fingerprint reader repeats the Galaxy S8’s worst design flaw.

To keep the Note 8 safe, Samsung has:

  • Instituted an eight-point battery safety check.

  • Reduced battery size and capacity from 3,500mAh to 3,300mAh to leave more room in the phone’s cavity.

  • Partnered with UL, an independent certification organization, to endorse the Note 8.

The Note 8 maximizes Samsung’s dual curved edge and nearly bezel-less Infinity Display to the point where this phone feels like a mini tablet from the future. It’s impressive-looking, but also big and heavy – 9mm taller than any previous Note phone, and 195g.

The S Pen can:

  • Erase mistakes when you press the S Pen button (very convenient, except when you accidentally press it)

  • Create two types of notes, which is especially confusing for novices; seems pointless

  • Add a quick note from the Air Command navigation wheel, can minimize this to turn into an icon that floats around the screen. (You can also add a quick note by pressing the S Pen button and double-tapping the display)

  • Write on the screen

  • Take a screenshot of a small portion, not the whole screen (this keeps you from having  to crop to the part you want)

  • Annotate everything from images to screenshots

  • Hover to preview and share or edit images and surface hidden menus

  • Design: More squared-off corners than the Galaxy S8 phones

  • 8-megapixel front-facing camera

  • S Pen is water-resistant, too (we tested the IP68 rating by submerging the Note 8 in a bucket of water twice for almost 30 minutes, the maximum rated threshold)

  • Bixby Voice button calls up Samsung’s digital assistant; you can’t reprogram this

  • You can launch two apps for split-screen mode at once (called App Pair)

  • Edge screen is like a speed dial for your favorite apps and people

  • Translate complete sentences (not just one word at a time); this uses Google Translate

  • Samsung Pay mobile payment works with NFC and any credit card reader; it’s pretty great

  • Google Assistant on board

  • Make an animated GIF from a video

  • Launch the camera by double-pressing the power button

  • OIS on both rear lenses helps keeps videos smoother than they otherwise would be when you’re walking, jogging and driving a car.

Galaxy Note 8 versus…

Galaxy Note 5: If you’re rocking a Note 5, it’s time for an upgrade. Feel confident buying the Note 8. You’ll love the improved speed, sleek shape, doubled S Pen sensitivity and fun new stylus tricks.

Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus: The Note 8 is the Galaxy S8 with the S Pen and a second camera. Really, that’s it. The Note 8’s screen is only one-tenth of an inch larger than the Plus (6.3-inch versus 6.2), and the core hardware is exactly the same. If you want to save some cash, are iffy on the S Pen and can live with a single camera, the S8 Plus is your no-brainer choice. Save more by buying the slightly smaller S8 (a 5.8-inch screen).

Oneplus 5: They share a top-of-the-line processor and portrait mode. The Note 8 overpowers the OnePlus 5 with wireless charging, water resistance and of course, the S Pen. If those things don’t matter much to you, consider the 5.5-inch OnePlus 5.The

Bottom Line The Galaxy Note 8 retakes the throne as the ultimate Android phone for now, but some intense competition is just over the horizon.

Hope This Helps!
