Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review, update: Specs of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 include an 8-inch display, a quad-core processor and a the very old Android 4.4.2 Jelly Bean.
Though there have been rumors that a 2014 successor may be in the horizon, it seems unfounded.
Despite it though the Android device that was made available in 2013 maintains a strong following.
Like the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 maintains a strong following.
And one key reason is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 have become a very functional device.
The 8-inch Android handset has a handy digital notepad with a stylus and a tablet rolled into one.
It enhances the user’s productivity and makes it easy for them to take down notes and with the big screen play screens.
Based on reviews, however, it’s not all a plus for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
First of, the price tag for its unlocked version is a bit steep at around $349-399.
Second, the device has a unibody design, the white plastic back of which is non-removable.
The stylus, though one of its key and most admired features, is not designed as a normal pen.
It will take some getting used to.
The 8-inch display of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which remains to be one of its hallmark features, bearing a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels can be challenged by some of its contemporaries.
The reason being is that although its more viewable than the Nexus 7 and the Tegra Note 7, which is also around 7 inches, the pixel density at 183 ppi is too low.
Comparing the pixel density of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with the Nexus 7, the latter has 323 ppi, much more than what the Note 8 has.
Nonetheless, the constant presence of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the world of Android proves that despite its probable shortcoming, it’s still a device that won many users’ hearts.
