Performance on Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has been rock-solid throughout my testing period. I’ve got the model with the Exynos 8895 octa-core CPU clocked at 2.3 gigahertz with 6 gigabytes of RAM. It does pretty good job at multitasking and did not leave any room for complaint over there. As far as multitasking and general performance are concerned, users normally expect the implementation of high-end specs on a flagship smartphone that costs this much. Having said that, if you are someone who’s looking for the absolute fastest Android phone available out there, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 won’t disappoint.
In spite of all that, Samsung smartphones are known to gradually slow down over the period of time. Thankfully, that hasn’t been the case with Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that I’ve been testing so far. Notably, over the course of my testing period, I haven’t experienced any weird app crashes or just slowdowns in general (at least yet) but that’s pretty much possible to change. Who knows. Anyway, Samsung pushes software updates over time that sort of improves the stability of its phones in general.
We ran a couple of benchmarking tests on Samsung Galaxy Note 8. On AnTuTu, it managed to score 175,894 points, which is lower than Apple iPhone 8/8 Plus, OnePlus 5, and HTC U11. Similarly, on GeekBench, it scored 2042 points for single-core as well as 6757 points for multi-core. You should Note one thing here is that although benchmarking apps are helpful in gauging in measuring the performance of a device, real-world performance for users matters the most at the end o the day.
I also ran Asphalt 8 to perform some graphics-intensive gaming tests on Samsung Galaxy Note 8. It didn’t run into any problems or even minor hiccups during my usage/gameplay. The game ran smooth and the experience was totally enjoyable.
