Samsung Galaxy Note8 hands-on review

Introduction

The successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4/5 is finally here – meet the Galaxy Note8. Wait, what? Okay, Europeans didn’t get the Note5 because, you know… Samsung, and we all know how the Note7 lived a shorter product life than it deserved. So in a way, a few of us Note-lovers have been stuck with three-year-old Notes, looking at some poor S-Pen-less S7 edges and S8s to fill the void.

Historically, Notes have been more or less identical to the Galaxy S-series flagship of the respective year, only with a bigger display and an S-Pen. Not this one, though – with the Galaxy Note8 Samsung finally takes the plunge into dual camera territory. And not just any dual camera – it’s the best one there is, Samsung says. They might have a point, we theorize, looking at the specs.
