A Review Of The Jaw-dropping Galaxy Note 8 Device From Samsung
When the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was released in 2016, it was a major step forward for this Samsung product line. The pairing of an updated S Pen with a sturdy body build appeared to be the markers of excellent performance. However, this did not last long as the devices made national and international news for a much different reason. Soon the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 made its appearance on the smartphone scene and quickly, the devices began blowing up.
Even though Samsung had a lot to prove to consumers, it has been successful for the most part. There is no doubt that the Note 8 is an excellent smartphone because it has most of the standard amenities, and has a great dual camera. However, it still seems as though the device was designed ‘to specifications‘.
Samsung did such an amazing job with the S8 Plus, its other large phone, that it seems that the Note 8 is not significantly different from the S7 line. Even though the Samsung Note 8 is considered to be the company’s best smartphone, the update to the phone is not only conservative, it is also considered costly. Unfortunately for Samsung, the Note 8 continues to be a difficult sell for most consumers.
As previously discussed, the inspiration for the Note 8 came directly from the S8s that were launched prior to the Note 8. What is most interesting about these devices is that they are subtly the same, but feel a lot different.
The physical differences are minute, and hardly noticeable at all. In fact, the only major difference is that the Note 8 is slightly larger than the S8. The Note feels heavier, and in a lot of ways, a lot more masculine than the S8. These changes are very subtle, and for most consumers, it will not mean a lot to them. When you acquire your own Samsung Galaxy Note 8 device go ahead and purchase a high-quality smartphone case that will protect it under any kind of stress – even cement drops.
Sound And Display
The screen on the Note 8 is one of the largest that Samsung has ever attempted to place on a Note device. The screen is 6.3 inches and it is a Super AMOLED. The phone is very comfortable to use and the screen is a little longer as it is wide.
The colors on the screen are vibrant, and if they are not up to par for your particular preferences, you can simply fiddle with display modes to get the color percentage you are looking for. The brightness is excellent and the viewing angles are considered to be perfect.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 operates on a highly tweaked version of the Android 7.1.1, and this is no surprise for tech geeks. This is the same operating system used for the S8 line. The software is also almost identical to the S8 line, and there are only a few add-ons. However, this can be too much for die-hard Samsung fans.
Every Samsung Galaxy Note has proven to be an intriguing device, and the Note 8 is no different. However, is it really worth the expensive asking price when compared to the S8 product line? You will have to decide based on your needs, budget, and preferences. Lastly, make sure to grab a durable, weatherproof case. It is a worthwhile investment when your new Samsung smartphone costs upwards of $1000 or more when compared with other smartphones on the market today.
