Should I Buy The Galaxy Note 8
Download ->->->-> https://byltly.com/2tDeJb
Frequent note-takers will love the off-screen memo feature, which lets you jot down white-ink notes on the turned-off black screen as soon as you eject the S Pen. Off-screen memos, introduced with the doomed Note 7, enable you to capture your thoughts without having to unlock the phone first.
I also noticed a sharp edge where the Note 20's plastic backing joins the metal frame, meeting in a gap big enough to run my fingernail all the way around. If you're going to use a case, it might not bother you, but Samsung can and should do better.
The Note 20's 3x optical to 30x AI-assisted zoom is still good as well, and better than the Galaxy Z Fold 2 (which has 2x optical zoom), but image quality at 30x was better on the Ultra than on the regular Note 20. Most of the time the Note 20 will fulfill your photographic needs. But when I took them both to the moody Northern California coast, many of my nature shots were simply better on the Ultra and I stopped reaching for the note 20 altogether.
The Note 8 improves on the core device specifications and hallmark S Pen features of earlier devices. While retaining the same overall look and approximate size of the Galaxy S8+, it features an upgraded processor and, for the first time in Samsung's smartphone history, a dual-camera system on the rear of the device; one functions as a wide-angle lens and the other as a telephoto lens, with both featuring 12 MP resolution and optical image stabilization. The S Pen has increased pressure sensitivity levels and its software has been upgraded to offer improved note taking capabilities on the always-on display, as well as animated GIF and improved translation features.
The Note 8 comes bundled with high-end AKG-tuned earbuds as well as the Note series' proprietary S Pen. Compared to the Note 5, the S Pen in the Note 8 has enhanced levels of pressure sensitivity (4,096 distinct levels of pressure), though The Verge noted that those enhancements were featured in the defunct Note 7. Ports include a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. It has support for Samsung DeX as well, letting Note 8 users connect their device to a dock and monitor to enable a PC-like computing environment with mouse and keyboard input.
The Note 8 came with Android 7.1.1 \"Nougat\" with Samsung's own custom user interface pre-installed. The S Pen offers expanded software features, including \"Live Message\" for the creation of handwritten notes combined with emojis resulting in short animated GIFs. Users can remove the S Pen from the device and immediately write notes on the display through \"Screen Off Memo,\" which works due to the screen's always-on capabilities. The screen can collect up to 100 notes and allows the user to easily go back to notes pinned directly on the always-on screen. A \"Translate\" feature now recognizes punctuation marks, letting users highlight entire sentences rather than single words, and supports 71 different languages. The edges of the screen on the Note 8 allow the user to open two apps at once in a multi-window view, dubbed \"App Pair.\" In the Camera application, a new \"Live Focus\" effect lets users adjust the intensity of background blur both before and after capturing photos, while \"Dual Capture\" makes both rear cameras take individual photos of the same subject, with one acting as a close-up shot and the other from a distance capturing the whole scene.
Camera testing company DxOMark gave the Note 8 a rating of 94, the joint-highest score of any phone, shared with the iPhone 8 Plus. Just a few days after the report of the Note 8 published was, the Pixel 2 tested was and given a 98 score, besting them both. It was noted that the Note 8 had better optical image stabilization than the IPhone X.
The Galaxy Note8 takes business innovation to the next level with features for performance, productivity and security for a wide range of industries, simplifying how work gets done:Enhanced S Pen for Business: The S Pen lets professionals discreetly take notes in Screen off memo or quickly annotate documents and photos.
The Note 8's deal 12-megapixel cameras boast a 2x optical zoom, which matches the iPhone 7 Plus, as well as a 10x digial zoom. Both of the Note 8's cameras sport optical image stabilization - a first for camera phones - which should result in steadier shots.
The Note 8 improves on the Screen Off Memo feature that debuted on the Note 7, this time letting you jot down up to 100 pages of notes without even unlocking your phone. Other notable S Pen features include Live Messages, which let you sketch your own GIFs, as well as improved translation capabilities.
This one should be a no-brainer by now given everyone has jumped into \"pen\" this century including Apple and Microsoft. Many business people take their notes on the PC, but more take them on paper. With the Note 8's Screen Off memo, I did not have to open the phone to take pages of notes. With 4,096 samples a second, I felt zero lag. This could even make me a believer in the pen.
Samsung really nailed it here and led the new pen revolution of this century. Once I found myself taking many notes with S Pen, I longed for a Windows app to view and share these notes on my PC. I thought the S Notes app would work, but it did not. I would like to see a Windows app and a way to sync OneNote.
Also consider how visual AI works, demanding a better camera. New business visual AI apps are popping up all over the place which does things like automatically determine how much money you should get back from insurance after a car wreck, determine what skin condition you have by taking photos of it. If you have heard of the team \"GIGO,\" Garbage In, Garbage Out- this law applies to visual AI. The better the camera, the better the visual AI and the better-automated result.
While Samsung does not play this up as much as they should, the Note 8 supports CAT.16 LTE Advanced networks supporting up to 1Gbps downloads. This is twice the speeds of many other premium smartphones, and 34 global carriers will have it live by the end of the year. In the US, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint are already live in targeted cities with the goal of all major MMAs by the end of the year.
In the next note, I'd also like to see an under-glass, ultrasonic finger print reader. The Note 8 rear fingerprint reader, while placed in a better place than the S8+, is still hard to operate and impossible to use with DeX. With DeX, I'm forced to use PIN or put my face close to the display and use retina,
Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is one seriously impressive smartphone. Crammed with up-to-date internals, including Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor (or Samsung's own Exynos 8895 if you aren't Stateside), complete with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It also features Samsung's biggest display yet: with its gorgeous Super AMOLED QHD+ display reaching a total of 6.3in corner to corner. Not only that, but the Note 8 also packs Samsung's first stab at dual-cameras, with a 12-megapixel f/1.7 wide-angle camera working in tandem with a 12-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto snapper on the back. To top it all off, you get Samsung's excellent S-Pen too, for note-taking and stick-man drawing.
The last big one-up is less obvious, but one you'll likely be taking full advantage of if you take the leap. Samsung's excellent S Pen stylus - the pointing stick that gives the Note its name - can now be used to jot quick notes on the screen while it's off, for on the fly note-taking. Among other things, handwriting and doodles can also be converted to GIFs and emoji should you so desire, and you can now hover the S Pen over any text or sentence to translate it, or use it for currency conversions. Perfect if you're the regular traveller.
Samsung has been ostensibly sticking to a two-year design cycle. It must be noted that the iterative refinements it offers in the second year are done without any increase in price (in India, that is). Which is to say, the launch price of the Galaxy S9/S9+ was the same as that of Galaxy S8/S8+.
Goodness of SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 8 is sensitive S-Pen to write almost anything inside this phablet note. The S-Pen located at the bottom of the body. There are several applications inside SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 8 which can do some job with this S-Pen such as taking writing note, photo editor and some other more.
Please note: In September 2019, we updated the DXOMARK Mobile test protocol to cover ultra-wide-angle performance and renamed the protocol DXOMARK Camera. We also expanded our low-light testing and created the new Night sub-score, which incorporates the previous Flash score. We have retested this device using the new Wide and Night test protocols and updated the scores in this review, but we have not changed the text from the original review. For more information, please see the articles about our new Wide and Night test protocols.
The best and the WORST Samsung phone ever!! Have yet to have my Note 8 fail. Been down to zero battery, charges right up, resolution very sharp and clear, no bugs from any up date. So why the worst you ask!! The utter bull feeces glass of the display, It has always been in a case, usually wallet types, and of the myriad of scratches and one FULL LENGTH CRACK ON THE EDGE only one I claim. I put it in a drawer with the flap open and put my spiral wire note book on top. Not a pretty scratch. I little nicks like there was were bubbles in the glass and they popped ALLLL THROUGH THE DISPLAY. I bought the note 8 as an upgrade to my note 4. It never failed, I bought it when the Note 4 first came out, then waited till the note 8 was released and found nothing like this in ya review. Nokia here I come!!!
