90% Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Back to being best. The Note 8 shines with a big, superb Infinity screen, high performance and, for the first time, with a dual-camera. As usual, the S-Pen that can be inserted into the casing is included. Whether Samsung has developed the ideal phablet after the Note 7 disaster will be clarified in the test.
Update: Information concerning PWM, display response times, temperatures and power consumption has been added.

Source: Euro Gamer English
These are irksome issues but they're by no means deal-breakers, and if you're keen on big-screen experiences in your pocket - and love the additional functionality the S-Pen delivers - there's no real competition for the Note range. If you're not all that fussed about these additional trappings, you might be better off getting the Galaxy S8 or the S8 Plus, the latter of which has a similar-sized display to the Note 8 but costs less.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
There’s some drawbacks with the Note 8, it’s an excellent quality handset but you’ll find pretty much all this (minus the dual-camera and S Pen) in the Galaxy S8 Plus which begs the question: How much will you use the S Pen, or that dual-camera with the 2x optical zoom and the interesting Bokeh effects. There’s also smaller options in the S8 and other great handsets like the Sony XZ Premium, HTC U11 and of course the excellently priced OnePlus 5 which is still currently available in Australia.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review: The Most Capable Smartphone on the Planet

You’ll have gathered my enthusiasm for the Note from the opening few paragraphs above – there’s simply so much here in terms of hardware and software flexibility that any small missteps (like the fingerprint sensor positioning) can be overlooked. Without a doubt, this is the most capable smartphone in the world right now and it’ll probably stay king until the Note 9 arrives in 2018.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 quick review – the Note series is trendy again
Source: Laptop Media English
Samsung’s Note series was in disfavor after its let’s say unsuccessful last representative. However, Galaxy Note 8 looks dazzling but for the various high-end features you will have to spend a relatively large amount of money if you want to get your hands on the device. Anyway, it will win you with its appearance including the curved glass at the edges both in the front and rear part. Available again are fingerprint, heart rate and iris scanners which we came across in Galaxy S8. The display is now 6.3-inch resembling a small tablet rather than a smartphone but thanks to the tiny side bezels the overall dimensions are within reasonable limits. Let’s not forget S Pen which brings additional amount of features that cannot be found in other smartphones.

When all the tests are verified, the scores calculated, and the perceptual analyses discussed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes out as an outstanding choice for the smartphone photography enthusiast, matching the top overall score of 94 points of the iPhone 8 Plus. Dual-cam setups offering a second telephoto zoom for portraits are a real step forward for high-end smartphone photography, and the implementation on the Note 8 is exceptional, making it the best smartphone for zoom shots we’ve tested.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: A truly premium experience
Source: India Today English
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best premium smartphones in the market right now. With a near excellent combination of top-end software and hardware, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 brings the best out of a smartphone. It feels premium and overall, the experience with the phone has been top-notch. Of course, it’s not perfect and has its shortcomings, but they are minor if you look at the load of features that are on offer. Add to all this the new and improved stylus, the Note 8 seems a more compelling proposition. But if you don’t think the stylus would be of much use for you, you’re better off with the Galaxy S8+, though you will miss out on the dual-camera feature.

For those who want a premium smartphone and don’t think the iPhone 8 is worth, Galaxy Note 8 is definitely a device to consider. It gave us no cause for complaints on the performance, camera front, and some of the new software features are interesting, though a bit gimmicky. But if you don’t want to spend Rs 65,000 plus just for the Infinity Display and dual-rear camera, then the S8, S8+ are still great options in the premium range.

The Galaxy Note 8 is probably going to be Samsung’s biggest comeback ever. A challenge I once assumed that it would never take up after the Note 7 fiasco.

Source: Gadget Show English
Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is slightly thicker than its brother the Galaxy S8 plus, mostly because it has to accommodate the S-pen. 3,300 mAh of battery juice provides just 22 hours of work time (nominal use with Wi-Fi on). Which is not so bad for a phone that has a larger-than-life smart screen and extended features. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a price tag of Rs 67,900 is a worthy player in the premium segment of smartphones.

The Galaxy Note 8 may be a bigger Galaxy S8+ -- with an S-Pen stylus and dual cameras -- but in the grand scheme of things, it's all the more compelling than the Galaxy S8+ and not the other way round. The 6GB RAM/128GB storage version of the Galaxy S8+ is currently selling for Rs 64,900. Skip it if you can and go buy yourself the Galaxy Note 8. It's not just the best Note ever, it's also the best all-round Samsung phone ever. Provided you're into big screen phones. For everyone else, the Galaxy S8 should be more than a handful.

The Note 8 also gives you the added benefit of having the latest version of Samsung’s UI, over its S8 sibling. While this could change going ahead, the way we see it, the Note 8 might continue to get preferential treatment since it is a matter of prestige for Samsung. It will also give the company a chance to show its commitment to devoted fans. The only thing slightly disappointed about is battery life. We would typically expect a top-end phone to last an entire day at the very least, but that's tough to achieve here.

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is the most expensive phone of the series yet, a fact you can't get around. Fact number two: it's the most versatile smartphone you can currently get.

Finally, the Note 8 only comes with 64GB, which honestly feels a little light nowadays. It thankfully has an SD card slot for expansion, but it still would have been nice to offer a larger storage option considering that the Note 8 is meant to be for power users. Another carry-over feature is water resistance, coming in at an impressive IP68 rating. It’s the same as the Galaxy S8’s rating, but it’s better than most smartphones on the market.

The Galaxy Note 8 is a damn good phone, one that will surely make any owner happy. It’s packed full of every single goody an Android user would hope for and then some. It’s probably the best Samsung and the company’s fans could hope for following last year’s recall craziness. As someone who has been reviewing Galaxy Note phones for a few years now, I can say for sure that this is the best iteration we’ve seen to date. It has an insanely good camera experience, design that will have all of your friends talking, plus it doesn’t leave anything out in the name of courage. To me, there were no sacrifices made in the making of this phone, making it one hell of a smartphone package.

The Galaxy Note is always one of the most exciting smartphone releases each and every year and even more so this year simply because we were unsure if there would even be another Galaxy Note after last year’s disaster. The Note 8 is as exciting of a phone as many people, including myself, expected it to be but Samsung might have fizzled some of that excitement with its hefty price tag.

The Note 8 could be better in some ways. The fingerprint sensor is located in an awkward spot, and the Live Message feature (as novel as it is) doesn't always work the way it should. Then, there's the price. If you don't have a need for the S Pen and you just want a big screen, you'll be plenty happy with the $850 Galaxy S8 Plus. But I'd spend the extra dough on the Note 8 simply because of its dual-lens camera and what you can do with it.

There's no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is a fine machine. It has an impressive 6GB RAM, an expandable memory on top of that (up to 256GB), a 10nm processor and loads of additional business features. Devotees of Samsung's Note line are sure to appreciate the improvements it has made to the Note8, because they are considerable, but the high price tag ($929.99) may be a barrier to entry for newcomers to the line. That said, if you're in the market for a mobile device equipped with a stylus, you'd be hard-pressed to find something superior to the new Note8.

And that creates a conundrum. For as great as the Galaxy Note 8 is overall, it's somewhat a victim of Samsung's success. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are such good phones, and have so much in common with the Note 8, that the biggest and most expensive phone in Samsung's lineup just isn't all that special anymore — yet it's asking for a hefty price premium over the other two. But that's something for the tech press to get worried about. For everyone who just wants a fantastic phone with excellent hardware, a massive screen and just about every feature imaginable, the Galaxy Note 8 is here and owners will definitely enjoy it. For those who are drawn to it but need something smaller, or cheaper, Samsung will happily sell you a Galaxy S8.

90% Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: The epitome of a business-first smartphone
Source: Zdnet.com English
I think the biggest hurdle potential Note 8 customers will have to overcome is the price tag. The Note 8 is priced between $930 and $960, depending on carrier. Even with the balance split up in a carrier payment plan, it's an expensive smartphone. With rumors circulating that Apple will soon release a phone around the same price, the near-$1000 smartphone may soon become the norm. Still, it's tough to justify spending that much on a phone.

The Galaxy Note 8 is at once a safe, almost obvious phone, and one that still manages to show Samsung reaching out into new, untested waters. By taking the look of the Galaxy S8, scaling things up a bit from the GS8+, and adding in S Pen support, the Note 8 feels like the Galaxy Note phone Samsung was always going to make. But by giving us dual cameras for the first time, it still shows that Samsung is willing to use the Note platform to test out new features.

There is definitely a lot going for the Galaxy Note 8 but also a lot of things going against it, making it a harder decision to make for most consumers. The price tag alone, which starts at $930 for unlocked 64 GB models, is sure to scare all but the most faithful Galaxy Note fan. For them, the Galaxy Note 8 is a no brainer.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review: So Close To Perfection
Source: The Independent English
I feel I’m only just getting to grips with the Note 8. It’s gorgeous, has a tremendous camera and fits the hand beautifully, and way better than you might have expected. The S Pen gives plenty of extra functionality and all the previous features of the S8 (waterproofing, versatile wireless charging, Samsung Pay, HDR display) are included here, too.

The Note 8 could be better in some ways. The fingerprint sensor is located in an awkward spot, and the Live Message feature (as novel as it is) doesn't always work the way it should. Then, there's the price. If you don't have a need for the S Pen and you just want a big screen, you'll be plenty happy with the $850 Galaxy S8 Plus. But I'd spend the extra dough on the Note 8 simply because of its dual-lens camera and what you can do with it.

There’s nothing quite like a Galaxy Note. Samsung’s flagship may not stray wildly beyond the Galaxy S8 and S8+ we’ve already seen, but the changes it brings – S Pen, camera, and more RAM – pay dividends in all the right ways. Certainly it’s not a cheap device, but nobody said the cutting-edge would be easily attainable.

And finally, I’ve known a few Galaxy S series owners that buy the new Note to simply have the biggest/best Samsung device. Considering that the Galaxy S8+ is almost the same size as the Note8, this could also be a market not as interested in upgrading to a Note. That being said, if you’re a Note fan because of the stylus, there is nothing out there like the Galaxy Note8.

89% Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: Excellent, but still a tough sell
Source: Engadget English
With its exceptional screen, solid performance and an improved S Pen, it's no surprise that Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is its best big phone ever. It also doesn't hurt that it has one of the best dual camera setups we've ever seen. The problem is, Samsung's second-biggest phone, the Galaxy S8 Plus, is nearly as good, and mostly just lacks the gimmicks that make the Note 8 more expensive. If you’ve always wanted to sketch or write on a phone, the Galaxy Note 8 is exactly what you've been looking for. For the vast majority of people, though, the Note 8 remains a tough sell.

The lines between the S and Note series have never been blurrier; for now, the dual rear camera setup is enough to differentiate the Note8 from the S8, but we're almost certain to see a very similar camera setup on next year's S9. At that point, the only difference between the S and Note series will be the S Pen, which makes me wonder if Samsung should just retire the Note line and incorporate S Pen functionality into the S series.

The Galaxy Note8’s comeback is measured and calculated, but definitely a big improvement over the Note7.

Simply put, it is undoubtedly a great device — big in size, bold in intention. And, if there’s one other item we’d hope to cross, that would certainly be the asking price — Php49,990.

The Galaxy Note 8 has to wash away the bad taste of last year's battery-burning Note 7 double-recall. It has to outshoot every other phone with a set of dual cameras that's already out there. And finally, Samsung's highest-end phone needs to outshine the LG V30, Google Pixel 2 and iPhone 8, while also convincing buyers to choose it over the cheaper Galaxy S8 ($649.88 at Amazon Marketplace) and Galaxy S8 Plus ($713.90 at Amazon Marketplace).

Our first impressions of the Galaxy Note 8 are generally positive. It's effectively an extension of the S8 range with a larger screen, S Pen stylus and dual cameras. A lot of that is attractive but whether you want to pay extra for it is another matter, especially with a smaller battery. For Note fans, it's probably a no-brainer but other will find one of the S8 models satisfies.

At the aptly named Unpacked event, this morning Samsung is taking the wraps off of their next generation phablet, the Galaxy Note8. A staple of summer handset launches, the Note has become the third pillar of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy device lineup, and for various reasons – good and bad – is perhaps the most memorable and unique member of the Galaxy family. While other Android handset vendors can give Samsung a run for their money in the smartphone space, Samsung has carved out and held on to the very distinct niche of the modern, stylus-equipped phablet.
