The Note8 is here and we can't help but feel the tension rising, especially in Europe where this is the first Note device to officially land in two years. It's been quite some time, so a lot is riding on the Galaxy Note8.
That being said, you may have noticed that Samsung isn't revving up the PR machine this time around, gliding at cruising speed instead.
This could very well be due to the still fresh memory of the Note7's woes or the fact that the Note line was never really intended to be a mainstream device with the kind of mass appeal of a Galaxy S or an iPhone. It's more of a specialized productivity tool, catering to a select group of power users.
Samsung is playing it safe with the feature set too. There are no mind-blowing innovations in the Note8. The phablet is predictably sized and equipped, sporting a familiar, if slightly tweaked design. Even the dual-camera setup is by no means revolutionary. On the contrary, perhaps it's even slightly overdue.
Now, we'll be the first to admit that this is a pretty strange place for the Note8 to be. We have no intention whatsoever of downplaying what is probably the most versatile smartphone today. At least on the surface though, there's nothing to be extremely excited about. Now, it might just be a blessing in disguise, letting us evaluate it from a power-user perspective, without worrying too much about the impression it makes or fails to make to the mass-user.
As the saying goes, the right tool for the right job. That latter "right" is just as important. So, join us on the following pages as we examine the Note8 and its credentials, without losing sight of the job description.
Definitely the Note 10 lite. Might be lower res, but the sensors and software are far better.
Which is better? A galaxy Note 8 or Note 10 lite?
The note 8 camera when compared to iPhone 7 Plus which is better?
