“The King has arrived” “An absolute Beast”, this is what experts are saying on Galaxy Note 8.
After months of waiting and rumors, the most powerful phablet in the world has now arrived.
Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 competitive enough? We’ll see
Samsung Galaxy Note8, the best phablet on the market?
This year we are finally facing a revolution in phone design. It’s beginning to standardize the Infinity Display, or screen without just borders. This allows large panels to be inserted into very small bodies. To give you an idea, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is just a tad taller than a traditional 5.5-inch device, it comes with 6.3 inches. It is something more angular than a Samsung Galaxy S8.
At its rear we find a double camera arranged horizontally, something that we had never seen in the Korean firm. The fingerprint reader repeats location, next to the camera in the upper left of the model. It is at the bottom where we find the main difference with their brothers the S8, and is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a feature that makes it unique, the S-Pen. This is housed inside the terminal, and seems to be more useful than ever.

Equipped with optical image stabilization, the first sensor with Dual Pixel technology sports a f / 1.7 aperture lens. As for the second, it also offers a maximum resolution of 12 megapixels, although the lens has an aperture value f / 2.4.
Among the additional features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, we have S Pen stylus. In the new generation of the phablet we detected a pointer with great sensitivity of 4,096 pressure points, as well as a tip of 0.7 millimeters. The pointer can be used on the screen of the device without being even turned on. Additionally, it has a specific software suite with apps such as Live Message, Screen Memo, Translator and Pen Up.
