Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review – A smartphone that is far better than others
When it comes to the list of Samsung’s best smartphones for productivity, Galaxy Note 8 is right at the top. It has done made amend with all the wrongs that were done with recalled Note 7. With the return of S Pen stylus, it has 6.5-inch “Infinity Display” to work on but doesn’t increase the dimension of the phone by much amount. It feels like a sizeable, borderless glass canvas which is best suited for handwritten notes as well as creative doodles.
The Note 8 has got the maximized dual curved edge and comes with near bezel-less “Infinity display” which gives the feeling of a mini tablet, right from the future. It is bit big and heavy, being 9mm taller than previous Note Phone. It weighs at 195 gm.
It still remains to be the top highlight of the phone. It makes it easy to sign documents as well as write directly on the screenshots you have taken. With convenient off-screen memos, it expands the note-taking. It is useful for Live Messages as GIF Capture which add fun to this awesome productivity tool.
This phone is the fastest Samsung phone thanks to its all-new 6GB RAM along with latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.
It is great news for those who like to multi-task as well as power users who want to maximize their experience with this S-Pen equipped phone and also utilize the productivity benefits of its plug-and-play Dex docking station. It comes with one storage option which is 64 GM of internal storage. It also includes a microSD card slot for memory expansion. When it comes to productivity, it doesn’t lack anything.
It has 12 MP cameras with optical image stabilization. It comes with 2X optical zoom for taking telephotos as well as portrait photos. It can take videos of 4K quality, and OIS is great. Its camera is the best than any phone present in the market as it captures clear and colorful photos along with a brilliant new bokeh (background blur) effect. It also set you up with a full-featured camera app which is quite easy to use.
Samsung’s telephoto lens is quite good. The 2X optical zoom of its second rear camera benefits from OIS or Optical Image Stabilization. This essentially means that the internal lens moves to compensate for your hand’s shakiness.
When it comes to battery, it has some downside. It has a 3,3000mAh battery which seems less. However, it still gets you along all day owing to Samsung’s power saving software tricks which essentially extends it to over 24 hours. While doing on-screen tests, there is a noticeable drop in its ability to hold onto power. It is because of its intense brightness as well as wider 18.5:9 screen. It also dials back when it comes to rapid charging. However, it is still a “Fast Charging” phone, but it almost takes 120 minutes to completely change with the included USB-C cable.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a best and big smartphone which you can buy. It’s not only the screen size which counts but also the power of S Pen. It also allows you to capture great telephoto as well as bokeh-rich photos, all because of its new dual-lens array. It is a fast smartphone with 6 GB of RAM. All this makes Samsung Galaxy Note 8, a worthy phone to have.
