The fingerprint scanner is still around the back many people gripes about the Samsung S8 fingerprints going to being around the back but it is improved on this one the whole surround around the fingerprint scanner just feels a lot more easy to figure out when your finger is hovering over it. So it’s not quite as confusing an experience. On top of that, the cameras alongside it are also pretty quiet on paper two 12megapixel snappers. We’ve got a wide angle and a telephoto snapper and the wide angle has an F1.7 lens, the telephoto at F2.4. The both cameras have OIS and it’s the first of this kind. As for the front camera, it’s an 8megapixel snapper with an F1.7 lens such should let loads of light. In the main cameras also have some of the sweet features for example if you’re taking a photo you can have it with automatic to take in a wide angle and telephoto but something I haven’t seen on any other smartphone before.

What I have seen on of the smartphones you can do on the Note 8 is the above camera which blurs out the background by getting perspective information from the second lens. And retrospective lay off you’ve taken a picture you can change what is in focus.


As for the rest of the specs 6 gigabytes of RAM, an Exynos 8895 Octa core Processor which process so quickly and runs Android Nougat 7.1.1. We’ve also got 64 gigabytes of storage paired with microSD expandability. On top of that, this thing like I said has a headphone jack and it ships with some AKG headphones which should sound better than your standard phone.

When it comes to security features as found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 iris scan, a face detection and fingerprint scan are there. I spoke about earlier as well as a 3300mAH battery it’s looking pretty solid on paper things across a battery can get you through a full day but you have to wait for a full review before we can confirm or deny whether or not.


You could have figured out by now, that the Galaxy Note 8 offers a few new and significant features that were lacking on the S8+. So yes, the device is more expensive than it’s stylus-less sibling. In Europe, for example, it is retailing for a whopping €999. And that is the base model packing 64GB storage. The Note 8 is not the most expensive Galaxy ever.
