Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Galaxy Note8

Galaxy Note8's size

The Galaxy Note8 is 2.9inches (74.8mm) wide, 6.4inches (162.5mm) tall, and 0.3inches (8.6mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Galaxy Note8, it weighs about 6.9oz (195g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Galaxy Note8, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of Galaxy Note8

The Galaxy Note8 has an extremely high processing power of 2.3GHz+1.7GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Galaxy Note8 has a very high RAM capacity at 6GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The Galaxy Note8 is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Galaxy Note8's storage capacity

The Galaxy Note8 has 256GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

Since the Galaxy Note8 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Galaxy Note8's screen

The Galaxy Note8 has a 6.3 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen of the Galaxy Note8 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The camera function of Galaxy Note8

The main camera of the Galaxy Note8 has a capacity of 12 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The Galaxy Note8 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Galaxy Note8

The Galaxy Note8 has a relatively large battery with 3300mAh. The Galaxy Note8 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Galaxy Note8

The Galaxy Note8 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
