Posted by

Announced a few days ago, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2017. What is great is that we got our hands on a unit. We would be committing a crime against you, our darling readers, if we didn’t publish a hands-on article, so here we are.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Hands-on and Photos

The Note 8 has a big screen. The display is a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED piece of work that is sharp and bright. The display of the Note 8 is a thing of beauty. Very drool-worthy. It looks and feels like a premium smartphone should. We are talking about top-grade premium here.

One really cool thing is how the big display fits into a body reserved for smaller displays. That is like eating your cake and having it, and it is possible thanks to the almost non-existent bezels on the phone. It is solid craftsmanship. Of course, this isn’t the first time we are seeing this. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have a similar design.

The app tray is spiced up by nice rounded icons.

You can see the rear dual camera lenses, LED flash, and fingerprint scanner here at the back of the Note 8. Again, that odd location for the fingerprint scanner.

The Note 8 is a gorgeous smartphone that packs a wallop. That is no surprise. Samsung’s Note devices have been top dog for years. It costs top money too. If you’ve got the cash, spend it like a boss. Samsung fans, over to you!

PS: If the Galaxy Note 8 is above your pay grade and you want a much more affordable Note, Infinix Note 4 Pro has an Xpen stylus and is looking good too. You can check out our Infinix Note 4 Pro photos as well.

  6. *If you’ve got the cash, spend it like a boss.” And I shall get there soon 🙂 This is surely on my radar as the next phone to get.

  7. That 6.3 inch screen size does it for me. I’m a lover of big screens for smartphones as I prefer this for other things like watching videos on the go rather than shelling out extra cash on a tablet.

  8. I saw a review of the Bluboo S8 and I loved what I saw. It’s equally a beautiful phone. Though I have my reservations about these Chinese brands .
