Samsung Galaxy Note 8

1 / 8

Samsung announced this year’s most-awaited Galaxy Note 8 flagship, and thankfully for the greater good, it’s not catching fire like its predecessor Galaxy Note 7. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price starts at Rs 67,900, which is more in line with competition with some of the other flagship devices available out there. The key highlight of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has to be the large 6.3-inch form factor, which might not work very well for people with small hands. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is powered by the company’s in-house Exynos 8895 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. Internal storage is at 64GB which can be further expanded via microSD card. The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. As for the optics, the Note 8’s dual rear camera setup comes with a 12-megapixel wide angle lens with dual pixel AF and f/1.7 aperture, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with autofocus and a f/2.4 aperture. The device packs a 3,000mAh battery under the hood with wireless charging support and runs on Android Nougat out of the box. I’ve been using Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for the last few weeks, and based on my in-depth experience with the device, here’s what I’ve got to say about it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is undeniably the best smartphone I’ve reviewed in 2017 so far! It ticked all the boxes and delivered excellent results at the end of the day, something people expect from any flagship smartphone these days. The Infinity display is one of the best that beautifully blends in with the curves as well as the edges. The premium-looking handset is best-used with a Samsung stylus called S-Pen. It has best-in-class hardware to deliver its full potential, courtesy of Snapdragon 835 SoC, Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB RAM. I am pretty impressed with its camera experience and zooming capability, and best of all, it manages 1-day usage. Totally recommended!
