Samsung Galaxy Note 8, A Second Chance At Greatness
Hopefully, by the time we're done testing and exploring the Note 8's features here, we can help you decide if the device is right for you. We have had one in hand for a while now, and put it through its paces not only during daily use, but with an array of benchmarks and battery tests as well. Take a quick look at the device in action in our hands on video below, then check out the specs underneath, and strap in for a tour of the Note 8
Super AMOLED display with curved edges. The Note 8 also sports and array of cameras – two 12MP (one wide-angle) shooters on the back, with f/1.7 and f/2.4 apertures, optical image stabilization, and dual-pixel phase detection auto-focus, accompanied by an 8MP front camera, also with an f/1.7 aperture. The rear cameras can shoot 4K video at up to 30FPS, and the front camera can do 1440p at 30FPS.
Powering the device is a 3,300mAh battery and the Note 8 runs the gamut in terms of wireless connectivity, which includes 4G LTE, 802.11ac WiFI, Bluetooth, NFC, and the like.
USB-C port into a micro-USB port or a Type-A port, a really a nice set of ear buds with two additional sets of pads (of differing sizes), a sim / micro-SD tray ejection tool, and -- of course – an S-Pen, with a tip extraction tool and 5 replacement tips. The S-Pen integration is what helps set the Note 8 apart from the Galaxy S-series, so it's obviously a big part of the Note 8's identity.
