Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Almost a year ago, Samsung called to review each and every Note 7 on the planet. To all. It was the withdrawal of one of the most desired phones of 2016. I wondered if we would see a phone under the name Note.
For any brand, it would have been better to forget the affair and engage in something else. But they wanted to do just the opposite: Galaxy Note, was born again
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has the biggest screen introduced in a smartphone of the Samsung brand. SuperAMOLED screen 6.3-inch . In Note 8 we have an “Infinity Display” screen of 18.5: 9 which produces a rectangular smartphone.
The quality of the panel is protected with Gorilla Glass 5, compatible with the latest HDR standards and peaks of brightness up to 1240 nits. In hand it is difficult to differentiate from an S8 + except for a more rectangular design and 1/3 of an inch higher. It creates the optical illusion in which it seems that the screen floats on the phone.
IP68 water resistance, fingerprint reader on the back, button dedicated to Bixby, iris sensor and heart rate and compatibility with wireless charging. Note 8 is one of the most complete Android smartphones to date.
The point is the S-pen
The Galaxy Note 8 differs from the rest of the smartphones by an accessory that has been accompanying it for years. It’s the S-pen. The main difference of this phone with the rest of devices of the brand. And like every year, the S-pen continues to improve on reliability and options. For some users this is only the reason for purchase.
With the S-pen we can control the phone, take notes, draw on captures, select elements … all with a very precise screen response thanks to the 4096 levels of sensitivity. Only after trying it we realize that sometimes the finger is perhaps not the most ideal to manage the phone.
It is equipped with a processor Exynos 8895, rival of the Snapdragon 835. It also has 6GB of RAM, more than the other phones of the brand.
The Galaxy Note 8 also offers 64GB of built-in UFS 2.1 memory via microSD. The capacity of the battery is 3300mAh, an amount that is correct, although we believe that it should be improved more by the amount of performance of the equipment
Accompanied by a fast charger that will be completed in one hour and three quarters. It is compatible with wireless charging.
High-level double camera
The main novelty of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the incorporation of a double camera. It has the same amount of megapixels and great work has been done in offering a first level portrait mode.
With night shots the first camera is the one that does the best job while thanks to the second we can zoom 2X. The first one is also faster with the Dual Pixel system, in fact this difference increases because in the secondary we do not have the pro mode available.
The video recording is excellent and very stable, being another of the points where Note 8 especially stands out.
Our conclusion of The Charming Samsung Galaxy Note 8
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is in our opinion the best phone with a pen available today. An S-pen which is a differential element. In the rest it looks a lot like the Galaxy S8 +, which we also found an excellent device.
It has an excellent design, manufacture and materials. It has water resistance IP68 and one of the best screens on the market. The photography has improved a lot with the addition of the secondary camera and inside we have a combination of processor Exynos next to the 6GB make it an excellent phone.
Not an economic device, make it the most expensive Android phone within the range. It has some elements to improve: Your Bixby smart assistant is correct. The position of the fingerprint detector is not the best. The speakers are normal, and this smartfhone deserves better. Nor do we have the greater autonomy of the battery as it did with the previous notes.
