    About the Phone

    Samsung has been broadening the appeal of the S Pen for the past few years, and Note 8 takes it to the next level. The battery is good, with the performance of the phone only improved by the incredible chipset in its processor and the 6GB of RAM.

    The device is very big though and will keep protruding from your pocket due to its aspect ratio.


    • Infinity Display and powerful processor
    • Power of the S-pen
    • Dual Camera and Dual OIS


    • Small battery size
    • Wrongly placed fingerprint scanner
    • No stereo speakers


    Samsung has taken its flagship game to the next level with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8! It brings to the table a slew of many unique features and promises great experiences with its stylus, the S-pen. It does, however, make you ask if the S-pen is your cup of tea at all – if the Galaxy Note 8 is really worth the upgrade.

    The maple gold Samsung Galaxy Note 8, with 6 GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory runs for around Rs 52,900. It has the largest ever screen on any device in the Note series with a whopping 16.05cm (6.3 inches) infinity display.


    The Galaxy Note 8 comes with a 12+12 MP dual rear camera with an 8 MP front camera, touch focus and face smile detection. The phone packs a punch with the Exynos 8895 operating system and a 10nm octa-core processor 2.3GHz + 1.7GHz Mali-G71 MP20 GPU. Added further to that is the incredible 3300 mAH lithium-ion battery which provides a full battery-life endurance of an impressive 89 hours.

    With its polished aluminium frame covered with gorilla glass, the Galaxy Note 8 has a glossy sheen that really catches the eye. Its built is as solid as can be and with an IP68 rating, water is not a worry for it. On the back, you have the dual aperture camera setup with a fingerprint scanner beside it.

     Like the S8, the Galaxy Note 8 brings Samsung’s curved infinity display. The display is a 16.05 centimetres (6.3-inch) infinity touchscreen display with 1440×2960 pixels, 521 PPI pixel density and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The AMOLED touchscreen is gorgeous, with a QHU resolution which fills almost the whole surface of the phone. The clarity and definition are really unparalleled! 


    Bixby has once again been assigned a separate button for ease of access and it does add significant value when required. However, it still has miles to go before it can compete with other virtual assistants.

    The Galaxy Note 8 has an Exynos 8895 chipset and 6 GB of RAM, but depending on the market you could find it running on a Snapdragon 835. Note 8 opens apps just fine and is one of the snappier phones we’ve seen in terms of handling multiple apps.

    The Note 8 has the same f1.7 camera found on the Galaxy S8+, but it’s a first time for Samsung to have included a secondary telephoto camera at f2.4 AF. Both are 12 MP and have OIS, which helps pictures come out with great details, high dynamic range, and really low noise. The telephoto camera allows for two times lossless zoom on your subject.

    After it gets dark, the shots have low noise and lots of details, owing to the OIS on the telephoto lens, which helps with zooming at night. Even after clicking the photo, Note 8 lets you change the level of blur and further allows you to switch between the telephoto and wide angle photo option at your discretion.

    The 8 MP front camera also has autofocus so it’s easy to get a nice selfie. 4K videos are great with no loss of detail and nicely saturated colour. While the 1080p videos come with a little more noise than the 4K videos, they are nevertheless really good as a standalone feature.

    At 3300 mAH the battery in the Note 8 is bit smaller than the one in S8+, which is strange since Note 8 is bigger. With quick charge 2.0, the battery charges from 0-40% in a respectable 30 mins.

    The Galaxy Note 8 is an impressive piece of technology bringing some of the best we’ve seen in the smartphone, and unlike the S8+, its dual cameras give seamlessly detailed shots and lossless zoom. It is important to point out that the big size is not for everyone and whatever it can do, it’s competitors can do as well. The unique feature here is the S-pen, which provides a streamlined way of interacting with your phone. This is exclusive to the Galaxy Note 8, and you won’t find it anywhere else. If this is something you would like and would love to have, then despite the high price tag, the Galaxy Note 8 could be the right choice for you.
