The Galaxy Note 8 was released in India at the price of Rs 67,900 Note 8 is the successor to the unfortunate 7th note that literally crushed and burned at the launch and caused a lot of damage to Samsung’s reputation. Does Note 8 have what it takes to isolate the reputation of Note 7? On paper, the smartphone looks like an absolute beast with high-end specs, a huge OLED display, a superb bevelled design, an enhanced version of the Samsung S Pen icon and more. Samsung has done everything it can to ensure that Note 8 has what it takes to erase memoirs of Note 7 from people’s ideas forever.
Let’s look a little deeper and look at the five main features that make Note 8 a phone to consider. And to be fair, let’s also talk about three ways that the smartphone could have been better: we can not deny that Samsung is behind in the two-camera game. However, according to the saying, it is better late than never. The note is Samsung’s first smartphone to offer a two-camera configuration in the back and the company added some tricks to remedy the lost time. Note 8 is the world’s first smartphone in which the primary and secondary sensors are optically stabilized.
This means that the images of both sensors must be sharp and sharp in most lighting conditions. The dual camera network consists of a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with a f / 1.7 aperture and a 12-megapixel secondary telephoto lens with an f / 2.4 aperture that allows for a 2x optical zoom. This is a dual camera application similar to that found on the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5. Both sensors also allow for capturing images with bokeh shots. Now note 8 comes with a “Live Focus Function” that allows you to adjust the depth of field during shooting preview or after taking the picture.
The last lap of note 8 is called ‘Dual Capture’, which allows you to take an image using the wide angle and telephoto lens simultaneously. You can simply choose the photo you want after pulling the image. The Galaxy Note 8 is powered by the Exnans 8895 octa-core processor 10nm associated with 6GB of RAM and the Mali G71 GPU. In addition, the smartphone has 64GB of internal storage that can be developed through a microSD card (up to 256 GB). In the US, the smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor found on most end-point smartphones and is probably one of the best Android processors out there.
On the front of the software, the smartphone runs on Android 7.1.1 nougat with Samsung’s Grace UX on top. The Galaxy Note 8 supports Bluetooth 5.0, which guarantees twice the speed of data transfer and up to four times the size of its predecessor (Bluetooth 4.2), as well as the ability to connect two sets of wireless devices. Note 8 also comes with a USB Type C port for loading and transferring data, as well as a 3.5mm jack connector, which is becoming rarer in today’s headlamps. Samsung also equipped Note 8 with an iris scanner, a feature that was first introduced in “too hot to handle” Galaxy Note 7. It allows you to unlock your smartphone with your eyes. With an iris scanner, Note 8 also comes with a fingerprint scanner and facial recognition.
The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are absolutely gorgeous smartphones that contain stunning designs without glasses. It will not be insignificant to say that these two phones absolutely shook the smartphone market in design and ushered in a new era of bevelled phones. The Galaxy Note 8 is as amazing and elegant as the S8 and S8 Plus. It comes with the same “Infinity” screen from edge to edge and inadvertently also looks great. While the display has the same 18: 9 aspect ratio, at 6.3 inches, it is slightly larger than the panel found on the S8 Plus (6.2 inches). Note 8 is cut into glass (also Drum Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for hardness) and metal. The center piece of metal that connects the front and back is polished to give the impression that the whole smart phone is a continuous sheet of glass.

While the dream of a smartphone totally free of glasses with only one window is still far away, Note 8 comes close to helping science fiction fans like me feel good. The smartphone has a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent – which means there’s almost (with almost the keyword) no glasses to talk about. the end result – a phone that looks extremely futuristic. Although note 8 looks strikingly similar to the S8 and S8 Plus, there are some differences here and there. The most important of these is that note 8 is not so curvy: the smartphone looks much safer and square.
While some may lose on the hand, they feel that the rounded corners of the S8 and the curved shape provide, I personally believe the locked design looks more industrial and solid. Like the S8 and S8 Plus, note 8 is also dust and water resistant IP68. There are some reservations with the design, such as the weight and shameful and embarrassing location of the fingerprint scanner, which we will discuss later in the article. Samsung has always been known for making AMOLED stellar displays with excellent contrast, deep blacks and pointed colors. And Note 8 is no exception.
The smartphone comes with a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440 and an aspect ratio of 18: 9. Note 8 has the same “Infinity” view seen on Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus – which means a panel from edge to edge with almost no glasses to speak. What does this mean in real life? Well, Samsung was able to drive a 6.3-inch panel into a body that was about the same size as the Galaxy Note 7, which had a 5.7-inch screen. Note the best score of Mate in note 8, with an A + score. The QuadHD + screen also has a few tricks on its sleeve – it comes with the always available Samsung function and HDR support.
When the original note of the galaxy was released, many critics have ridiculed Samsung to include a Stylus in a world that was changed to capacitive touch screens. However, many people had to eat a humble pie as the S Pen turned out to be one of the most popular and user-friendly features of note 8. With note 8, Samsung further enhanced S pen capacities. The new S-Pen has a peak of 0.7 mm and a pressure sensitivity of 4.096 to mimic the experience of using a real pen. There are a number of new features – you can now observe notes without even turning on the screen. The screen saver feature allows you to erase up to 100 pages of notes without having to do the arduous task of activating the screen and unlocking your phone.
You can also tweak these notes in note 8 always shown from where they can be changed at will. There is also another feature on offer called Live Messages through which you can send messages to people you know creatively. Why simply irritate people by sending emoluments or messages? Now you can draw or write anything, then the phone will cheer you up and add effects like sparks. Playing aside is a great way to celebrate an occasion such as a birthday or anniversary and send messages to your family or loved ones. These messages can be sent to anyone as a regular GIF without the need for a specialized messaging application.
