Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Over the years Samsung has built up a reputation that has them placed at the top when it comes to discussing the very best smartphone manufacturers. The tech giants are pioneers of innovative smartphone technology and consistently release handsets that have their global following of loyal customers pressing the ‘pre-order’before they even know the specifics, such is the monopolising power of the brand.
The SamsungGalaxy Note 7, however, was marred by the barrage of negative publicity aroundfollowing the well-known scandal surrounding the handsets.
This meant that Samsung received significant amounts of pressure upon releasing subsequent handsets, but perhaps no more than when it came to releasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Understandably, customers wanted to ensure that they wouldn’t suffer a repeat performance with the newest Note handset. With that being said, the Note 8 still had incredible sales, proving that even a bit of bad publicity can’t get in the way of Samsung’s success.
Thankfully the Galaxy Note 8 delivered, and Samsung fans across the world could breathe a sigh of relief.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Build & Design.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a beautifully designed phone, and we’re happy to see that it retains its own individual look rather than leaning too much toward the more familiar design of the flagship handsets. Where the S8 range was stylish, the Note 8 is equally as smart.
The sharper design of the Note 8 has a professional feel to it, and we’d definitely recommend it as a stellar choice if you’re looking for a business phone.
As is always the case with Note handsets, this is a tall handset, meaning that it is pretty tricky to use it with just one hand, and is much more comfortable when using two, which many will do anyway thanks to the S Pen.
SamsungGalaxy Note 8 Screen Quality
The 6.3-inch infinity screen spans from edge to edge and is more than big enough to enjoy any films, TV shows or eBooks on your smartphone.
The 1440 x2960 resolution is truly stunning. And a super AMOLED screen delivers an exceptional viewing experience.
Where colour balance may have been a little ‘off’ with previous handsets, the Note 8 features an Adaptive Display with an advanced colour balance that helps users control any sway towards any overly vibrant colours.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Sound Quality
When it comes to the audio experience of the Galaxy Note 8, it is very similar to the S8 and S8+, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as critics raved about the sound quality of the flagship handsets.
The sound comes through rich, full-bodied and well balanced. Instruments come through crisp and clear and rhythm is well balanced.
Users receive a free pair of AKG headphones in the box and with Vodafone Red Entertainment plans you can enjoy all of your favourite music on the Note 8 with free Spotify as part of your plan.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Features
It wouldn’t be a Note handset without the S Pen. Longtime Note users will be happy to see that this feature remains with the new handset, along with some serious upgrades when it comes to responsiveness.
With the Galaxy Note 8, taking notes quickly is easier than ever; you can quickly remove the S Pen and start writing memos immediately on the screen from standby, and keep any important notes or reminders to hand by pinning them to the Always On display.
A feature that also comes along with the Note 8 is the innovative Samsung DeX system. DeX enables any user to quickly and easily turn their phone into what is essentially a desktop computer.
All you need to do is connect your Galaxy Note 8 to DeX and it intelligently transforms into a desktop PC, meaning that you can carry out everyday tasks that require a bigger screen with ease.
Not surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 features an extremely impressive dual 12MP rear camera with 2 x optical zoom.
It doesn’t quite live up to the newly released Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but it still hold sits own and is more than capable of producing fantastic quality shots. There are a variety of different modes and styles that you can apply to your shooting style; the background blur, in particular, delivers an opportunity to create some pretty stunning shots.
The Note 8 also features a fantastic 8MP front facing camera which is equipped with autofocus, so any selfie addicts will be more than happy.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Performance
As with the majority of previously released Samsung handsets, users are in for a speedy smartphone experience. With an octa-core Exynos 8895 processor, you don’t need to worry about any lagging or delay on the Galaxy Note 8, and there’s a huge 6GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes equipped with a non-removable 3300 mAh battery with 22 hours talk time that is generally very good.
If you are caught short and do find yourself in need of a power-up, there’s ultra-convenient wireless charging as well as Quick Charge 2.0 fast battery charging, so you won’t be waiting for hours to reach full power again.
Fonehouse Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Opinion
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is an incredibly impressive handset that will expel any reservations than previous owners of the Note 7 may hold.
It is beautifully built with a smart and sophisticated design, making it a perfect choice for any professionals on the hunt for a business handset.
The screen quality allows a truly fantastic viewing experience, and any task, from watching films to reading emails, is a pleasure.
Equally sound comes across really well, and the good quality headphones are a much-appreciated bonus addition.
The camera maintains the high standards that we expect from Samsung, and a dual rear camera delivers fantastic quality photos.
Exynos 8896 delivers a speedy smartphone experience and we love the added benefit of super fast and wireless charging.
