Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review

SUPER SNAPS!

Dual cameras feature for the first time in a Galaxy phone, giving it a major upgrade in the photography department. You’ll be able to shoot wide and far, with stunning results

FRINGE BENEFIT

As with the S8, the Note 8 features the Infinity Edge display, giving you that incredible edge-to-edge look

Well, T3, what have we here?

Quite possibly your next phone – if you like ’em big, that is. The Note 8 is Samsung’s super-sized new handset, sporting an S8+ beating 6.3-inch screen. It’s huge, backed up by slightly more weight and larger dimensions over its ‘smaller’ sibling.

It looks like the S8!

Doesn’t it just? The Note 8 features Samsung’s signature Infinity Edge Super AMOLED display, packing an eye-searing QHD+ display just like the S8, so it’ll look gorgeous from any angle. It’s got some extra usability, though, thanks to the included S Pen stylus, which gives the Note 8 a productivity-on-the-go advantage for some tasks.

Wow. Is it speedy?

You bet. It features an octa-core 64-bit 10nm processor and 6GB RAM. The only sticking point is the smaller 3,300mAh battery – we really hope Samsung has optimised Android 7.1.1 to ensure all-day battery life.

Tell me about that camera…

Ah, nice spot. The Note 8’s most striking feature is its dual camera setup. With a wide-angle 12MP Dual Pixel lens and a telephoto 12MP, you’ll be able to get regular shots and then zoom in close to objects without losing image clarity.

When can I get my (large) mitts on this?

Big hands rejoice, it’s due imminently.

Samsung’s biggest phone could be its best.

What about the iPhone 8?

Here’s what we expect to see Apple announce in early september

REAR CAMERA

Expect a new higher-res sensor that can record 4k video at 60fps, possibly with a laser- based focusing system

FRONT CAM

The front camera will do 4k 60fps video too, for fancy FaceTiming. The screen insert will also house 3D face-scanning security tech

NEW SCREEN

Expect an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch, 2436×1125 display, in a smaller body than the 7 Plus

CHANGING HOME

iOS leaks suggest the new on-screen Home button will be resizeable, or even hidden in some apps

Apple needs a big leap, and this could be it.

  1. […] Then again, you do have dual cameras here, giving you more overall flexibility. To get a dual-camera setup matching the iPhone 8 Plus, you’d have to pay even more for a Samsung Galaxy Note 8. […]

    […] for the rear, the Pixel 2 XL looks and feels better than its predecessor. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 range still has the slight lead for looks, but it’s a far closer thing this […]

  3. Samsung note 8 is crap!! They make the phone slippery and rounded so I flies outta your hand. The front glass cracks if you freaking sneeze on it. The whole outside of the phone is highly scratchable. This phone is SHIT!!! Nice job cell phone assholes. Keep taking our money and keep making your phones easy to break. This is a straight up conspiracy. We have to end this. Oh and the iPhone dont even get me started on that turd. The menus are tailored for a 5 year old. This is nonsense, ppl stop giving your money for pieces of shit
