After the controversy generated by the problems with the Note 7 battery, the Korean company Samsung sought to recover the lost ground with a powerful and innovative device. With a 6.3-inch OLED screen that occupies almost the entire front of the phone, this cell phone is the first of the company that features a dual camera and is probably the most powerful Android device at the moment.
Its 6 GB RAM allows this device to do enough tasks at the same time. Its internal storage is 64, 128 or 256 GB and is expandable. As Android Authority highlights, the presence of the stylus takes the editing of texts, videos and photographs a step further. This cell phone has an IP 68 resistance to water, that is to a depth of 1.5 meters, as well as dust protection.
As CNET points out, this device drags the problems of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in terms of the strange location of the finger print reader located in the back.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a market price of $950 dollars.
It is not a tablet or a phone. This new release of Samsung is more like a ‘tabletphone’. Its internal memory can hold up to 64 giggabytes of storage. It also comes with an ‘S Pen’, an electronic pen to navigate the phone more easily. The new model comes with a built-in quick charge mechanics. With this, you can charge up to 60% of the battery of the electronic device in a short period of time.
We need to talk about the Galaxy Note 8’s camera. The two 12 megapixel sensors are capable of doing wonders in automatic mode of this device. It is clear that we can get more juice in the ‘Pro’ mode, but it will be more than enough with the automatic for most users. Its secondary camera has telephoto, which allows us to zoom X2 without losing image quality. This is something that we have been seeing for years in compact cameras, but that now begins to reach mobile phones.
This camera leaves us with one of the best experiences in the market. Its quality is incredible, as well as the detail it gets in up close shots. The contrast, saturation and brightness level is managed almost perfectly in automatic mode, although in very complicated scenes or backlighting, it may be worth switching to ‘Pro’ mode to set the exposure to your liking.
The Galaxy Note 8 has a battery of 3,300 mAh, which although it leaves us with a day of use but don’t expect to have 8 or 9 hours of screen like in other devices of this range. But even so, expect to have more than enough batter for every day tasks. This is remarkable, because although there are devices with this size that offer us more battery life, few have the screen quality and performance of this device. By using it intensively you will be able to hold it all day without any problem, so users who use it more modestly may reach the end of the day more comfortable. You can wait between 5 and a half hours and 6 hours of active screen with a varied use.
One of the things that characterizes the Note range from its beginning is the inclusion of the S-Pen. In this Note 8 we also have it. It has 4096 pressure levels and IP67 certification against water and dust. When removing the S-Pen from the body of the Note 8, it offers several common tools that may be convenient (or not). There are users who take great advantage of the stylus to navigate the device, and others who use it for more artistic tasks. It is an extra that in many occasions will be appreciated.
