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.
