The all new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the great best Smart Phone that yet to be released by Samsung on the huge Android Phone Market. This huge stunning productivity device is clearly a version of bug fixed Note 7, still with cool new features.
As far I tested the device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is really a redesign of our average smart Phone from all edges. Now there are two lenses on the rare camera on the back, with these lenses you can get real brilliant portrait photos, and you can even edit them with post-capture to make adjustment in the depth of field.
The S Pen stylus returns with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, as the device has a large infinity Display of 6.3 inch to work with. Because of the device is packed with an infinity Display the device does not show up like a huge device. Also the Note 8 simply acts like a big and borderless glass canvas to provide you the opportunity to enjoy great features and masterpiece doodles.
You might be thinking why to buy this Note 8 instead of 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus? Really the extra 0.1 inch of the display is not matter, but the real Note fans are actually love the S Pen functionality, the power users have the 6GB of RAM on the Galaxy Note 8 and the extreme dual-lens camera is the best with it.
The Note 8 does not comes with the usual Home button and the Fingerprint sensor because of the big infinity display of the device. It’s gone and the on-screen Home button replaces it works fine, but the fingerprint sensor is taken to the back of the device, this wired as it is in the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. The device is exactly textbook flawed design and the alternative iris scanner doesn’t always work whenever you want to immediately unlock the phone.
Then coming to the price of Note 8. You are getting the top line specs with the Note 8, the advanced dual lens camera, a stunning infinity display and streamlined multitasking on the phone. You are actually going to pay for all these things and improved hardware. However The Note 8 costs more than the Galaxy S8 Plus. While you might have to put on a huge amount on the device as it shoots the price tag. If you can handle the big prices and the phone then it is up to you to make the decision whether to buy or not.
