After a fiasco with the previous model in this series, Samsung has surely learned from its mistakes. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a refreshment we get to see this year. It didn’t take long for it to arrive in our hands. It was announced in August of 2017, and we’re so glad we can see a try and a success in the rescue of what we loved. Let us go through features of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 on a first glance. A tall unibody that gives it a fluent look, and with more than 83% screen-to-body ratio. It certainly feels like everything you’re watching is a part of the world around you.

It has a now all-familiar and loved InfinityEdge type of a screen. Left and right edges gently slope off to the side and give a feeling a never-ending surface. It’s reminiscent of Samsungs previous model, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Samsung Galaxy S8+. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has the biggest screen available on today’s market. Astonishing 6,3-inch and a 1440 x 2960 pixels resolution are to die for. With approximately 521 ppi density on the screen, you can be sure you’ll be watching razor-sharp details on it. If you’re an avid cinema fan, then this is certainly the smartphone for you to seek.

If you’re afraid of damaging this big beast on one of your trials, don’t fret. It has an IP68 certified system – dust and waterproof on over 1.5 meters and 30 minutes. Other than that, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 native glass protection keeps you from ever regretting letting your child touch it while you’re away. It is also HDR10 compliant – and that means the colors have never been brighter and more vivid. It’s a fact that the screen is Super AMOLED panel based, so you can see that you’re in for an adventure. Now let’s take a look at the more technical Samsung Galaxy Note 8 specifications.

It boasts a top-end Octa-core Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 in places like USA & China, and if you’re a tech fan, that should say enough – you’ll be able to do anything your heart desires –  forget waiting for loading times on your favorite game, erase the last annoying time you had to load a big website, the solution is here! Not only that, the Adreno 540 GPU is thrown in there as a plus like CPU wasn’t enough, and when you hear that it has 6GB of RAM, you’ll be ecstatic to find that it is combined with 32GB/64GB/128GB of internal memory, and the choice is yours! If that isn’t enough to fit your lifestyle, you can always expand it with up to 256GB microSD card.

A slight problem could be Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price of 908$. It can be justified with features you can see below, though. Some of the improvements include iris scanner of your eye, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for easy unlocking, and more. That’s all accompanied by a barometer and a heart rate sensor, which could be a small price to pay if it saves your life! We’re all slightly worried that a  battery of 3600 mAh cannot support this beast’s rage for a long period of time. Although Samsung Galaxy Note 8 possesses a fast charge utility, it is not at the top of its game. In the end, you might be rushing to find a power outlet in some situations.

    I was afraid this is gonna be a disaster

    I was really worried about this one, even though I liked my Note 7, it got confiscated at the airport while I was traveling, and caused me a lot of problems. I took a risk buying Note 8 because my girlfriend convinced me, and I'm now glad I did, what can I say, it's huge, has a great camera and the best processor you can get for your money. Happy customer over here!
