Samsung Galaxy Note 8 REVIEW – AFTER 3 MONTHS – Revisited

by birtanpublished on March 31, 2021

Hey guys what's going on it's Karl here back with another revision episode I know this is taken almost forever to get to but it is finally my review of the Galaxy Note 8 I've used this now for two months and we've seen pretty much every major flagship on the Android side come out for this year so I think it's pretty fair to say this is still one of my favorite devices to date and even at 2 months later with releases like the pixel 2 XL I still think the Galaxy Note 8 still holds its very own and will still be one of the best options that you can grab in 2017 as we are approaching Christmas so the note 8 is

Not perfect there are a couple compromises that you have to have the first of course is the fact that it doesn't run stock Android unlike the pixel 2 which has Oreo 8.0 we still have Android skin over top it is getting slightly better you can always stick a stock launcher on it not to mention it also has Bigsby as its assistant I'm not even getting into the details on that and use Google's voice assistant I haven't even updated Bigsby X that means I can't even use it because I don't I just use Google the second thing of course is the price which I get it it's

$1000 it's a lot for a smart phone but the pixel to excel is close to that price you are paying a ton of money for smart phones now we're at a time where $1000 for a high-end smartphone is a thing and some of you might say the si+ is probably the better option there are a few features that differentiate them obviously the si+ is cheaper the Galaxy Note 8 of course has the s-pen but to tell you the truth in the two months that I've use it I've used it maybe two times maybe once a month just to show friends it's definitely a cool thing to have it won't make or break your choice

When buying this phone but another little thing is the point one inch screen size 0.1 inches makes a difference so I think here the showstopper for the note 8 has to be the display and is hands-down the best display that you can get on a smartphone to date it might be a tad bit oversized say you're coming from an iPhone or an LCD panel but the first thing any iPhone user that looks at this guy says damn that's a good-looking display and they're not lying it's awesome so a six point three inch Super AMOLED display it is almost edge to edge which is

Synonymous with most phones now in 2017 it is gorgeous to look at for the piece of tech that you interact with most you're usually staring at your smart phone which of course is mostly the screen I'm usually on this five to six hours a day it is a pleasure to use and I absolutely love using this for all things media consumption doing my email social media it is just sexy to look at the premium design extends to the back of course and just like all Samsung phones it is made out of glass which is very nice looking right out of the box but tends to pick up fingerprints and

Some scratches which mine definitely has over the past two months I've chosen to wrap mine in a skin and this one of course from D brand completes the all-white look that I've got going here in the studio check them out I will leave their link down below and also just like the s8 lineup we have the strange fingerprint sensor right by the cameras and as this phone is slightly larger it makes it almost impossible to reach with one hand unless you have shaq-sized fingers of course I would have loved to have seen this in the middle but that's just one of those

Extra compromises that you have to make the camera when I initially use it was the best camera on a smartphone I think that's being overshadowed now slightly by the pixel 2xl don't get me wrong this is still one of the best in the industry images are super sharp dynamic range is great especially color reproduction how this thing handles reds and oranges it's still probably the second favorite camera that I've used on a smartphone which is definitely no slouch and we'll of course compare this to the iPhone 10 battery life is definitely something to

Consider as last year's epidemic of the exploding note 7s this year they kind of went with a smaller battery 3,300 milliamps and it's actually smaller than the one found on the si plus so for me it's fine just don't expect it to last a day in half for two days especially if you're on it all the time and and the Galaxy Note 8 is still one of the best phones that you can grab this year you need to decide if you want the performance of a good camera if that's the most important feature grab the pixel to the display over on the note 8

Is hands-down better so if you're always on your phone playing games watching video lean over to that side it also has an added bonus of keeping the three-and-a-half millimeter headphone jack that could be your deciding factor it's got these tiny extra things you have to make those tiny compromises not having stock Android having a weird fingerprint sensor placement it also has the s-pen which is kind of what has differentiated the note series just in case you use it that's another reason why to grab I think you kind of get it my favorite Samsung device to date and

I'm kind of glad to see that they've recovered from the exploding miss the note 7 from last year of course I'll leave a link down below in case you're interested and I will try to grab a unit to give away to one of you peeps want to see that happen smash that like button sub to the channel leave a comment down below why you would grab the note 8
