We have in our hands the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which can cause skepticism, due to the notorious battery problems that the previous model had. Samsung has assured us that the Note 8 is 100% secure, so we will give them another chance with their latest iteration of the Galaxy Note.
The body of the Note 8 has a design very similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S8 +, although a little more square, still carries Infinity Display, and a larger screen, which reaches 6.8 ", compared to the screen of S8 + 6.2 " On the back of Note 8, you will find two cameras and a fingerprint scanner, which is really hard to reach in such a large phone. We found ourselves using much more facial recognition software, instead of the fingerprint scanner, to unlock Note 8.
Inside the Note 8, you will find a Qualcomm 835 processor and 6 GB of RAM, which allows you to jump between applications quickly and without delay.
Like the new Apple Portrait Mode on your iPhone 7 Plus, the Note 8 has a live focus mode, which leaves a blur around your subject, to make it look sharper. With dual cameras, you can also make the phone take two photos at once, one with Live Focus and the other in wide-angle.
Another key feature of Note 8 is the S Pen, which gives you a lot of additional functionality, which you will not find in other smartphones. A new feature with Note 8 is Live Message, which allows you to create personalized messages in the form of a GIF, but we believe that this feature is a little more deceptive than a useful feature. You can also use the S Pen to translate words, and the Note is still solid for drawing and scribbling.
With App Pair, you can open several applications at the same time, which allows a large number of functionalities on how to open applications. Bixby is back, and now he's fully automated by voice.
So, in general, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a solid phone, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to the prices, and at an incredible price of $ 930, it's hard to justify this purchase when the Samsung Galaxy S8 is practically the same phone. However, users can be influenced by Note 8, with its S Pen, dual cameras and a larger screen.
