Samsung Galaxy Note 8

 

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: Is Samsung's 6.3-inch, stylus-wielding dual-camera phone enough to beat the phablet competition?

Stunning design and build ; Great screen ; Well-implemented stylus and software ; Superb cameras

Average battery life ; Wildly expensive

A worthy comeback for the Galaxy Note brand. The Note 8 has an excellent camera and stunning display, but the battery could be better.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review

 

Looking for a big-screen phone? This Samsung needs to be high on your shortlist

Large, bright screen ; Well built ; Decent audio, with hi-res support ; Great cameras ; S Pen functionality is well integrated

Battery life could be better ; Very expensive

After a tricky year and a few lessons learned, the Note 8 is back to winning ways

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: the world's best phone for getting stuff done

 

If you're a fan of the Note series, you won't be disappointed by the Note 8 features, S Pen, camera and more

So powerful ; S Pen enhancements worth having ; Camera image stabilisation tech ; We like app pairs!

It's expensive ; Fingerprint reader

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: Dual camera skills meet S Pen thrills

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a pleasure to use, packed full of innovative features and practical functionality. Regardless of price, it hits the ball

Display performance ; Plenty of power ; Waterproofing ; Software refinement ; So many clever options and customisations ; Camera performance is excellent ; S Pen's expanding skills

Battery life isn't class leading ; The price is high ; Fingerprint scanner placement needs a rethink ; Galaxy S9+ a serious consideration if S Pen doesn't appeal ; Bixby

There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best phones of 2017 and still has appeal in 2018. It takes everything that the Galaxy S8+ offers and pushes it a little further. This is bigger, a touch more powerful, packs in more camera...

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review

 

Supermassive. Super-powered. Super niche

Gorgeous, big screen ; Awesome camera ; Power to spare

Awkward to hold one-handed ; Facial recognition is hit and miss

The original big phone is back. Tweaks and changes are minor this year, but the Note 8 still perfectly fills its niche

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: Bigger, better, less flammable

 

The Galaxy Note 8 rises from the ashes of its predecessor; but can Samsung get back in your pocket?

Incredible bezel-less display ; Superb dual cameras ; Refined stylus

Painfully expensive ; Weaker battery life than S8 Plus

Samsung has a lot to prove if it wants to rehabilitate the Note brand. But with the Note 8, I’d say it has every chance of success. If only it weren't so ludicrously expensive.

Galaxy Note 8 not doing it for you? Try this instead

 

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro has almost everything you want from a big flagship phone.

The Mate 10 Pro is sleek and solid, very powerful and takes great photos in both colour and black and white. It's also water-resistant and battery life is superb.

You can't expand the storage and there's no headphone jack. Its software extras are gimmicky.

While it doesn't have all the Galaxy Note 8's features, the Mate 10 Pro earns its place in the high-end big-screen pack.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs iPhone 8 Plus: Battle of the palm-stretchers

 

We've pitted the gargantuan Samsung Galaxy Note 8 against Apple's fresh-faced iPhone 8, and it's a battle of the titans

On the other hand, our experience with the Note 8 so far has been stupendous, and the iPhone 8 Plus will have a serious struggle to compete in terms of performance and aesthetics. With a stellar design, outstanding screen and industry-leading...

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy S8 Plus: Phablet Fight

 

Fight of the phablets

But if neither of these things is a deal-breaker, then you’re likely best off jumping on the S8 Plus, in truth. It looks like it’ll be just as powerful and a similar size, but crucially the market has ensured that Samsung’s optimistic RRP has been...
