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

 

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

 

The best big smartphone with a stylus

'Infinity Display' is excellent ; Great dual-lens camera ; Fast with 6GB of RAM

‘Infinitely’ expensive at launch ; Battery life held back ; Weak speaker

The Note 8 at launch had the best big display on a smartphone and acts as Samsung's big phone comeback story, making up for the Note 7 recall. It has an expansive 6.3-inch ‘Infinity Display,’ faster 6GB of RAM performance and two outstanding rear...

Save £335 on a SIM-free Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with this incredible deal

 

Take note: Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 has dropped in price to £449 for one day only

The price includes 64GB of storage, Samsung's superb S Pen stylus for on-the-go note taking and a 64GB Samsung Evo MicroSD memory card.

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.

The Galaxy Note 8 still does it all, but Samsung is set to top it soon

 

If the rumors are right, Samsung will top the Note 8 with the Note 9 in August.

The Galaxy Note 8 is still a terrific phone in 2018, with dual cameras and a boatload of stylus tricks. It's currently the most feature-rich Android phone you can buy.

Expensive by any measure, the Note 8 has more features than most people will need. Samsung's portrait mode can be finicky. The poorly placed fingerprint reader repeats the Galaxy S8's worst design flaw.

With the Galaxy Note 9 just around the corner, now's a bad time to buy a new Galaxy Note 8 -- wait for the Note 9 to go on sale and the Note 8's price will surely drop.

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...
