The 3-Minute Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review

A phone that surpasses it's high expectations

By Zach Riley | October 17, 2017

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Screen

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4.5/5 ● Performance: 5/5 ● Value: 3.5/5

The Best:

As one of Samsung’s premier flagships, the Galaxy Note 8 truly stands out from the crowd. A premium build, top-notch display, and some of the best performance on the market make it a leader in the smartphone market.

The Bugs:

There are a few notable drawbacks with the Note 8, one of the most major being the expensive price tag. The tall design can also make it awkward to hold for some people and the fingerprint sensor is inconvenient to reach.

Is it for you?

With blazing fast performance and a beautiful display, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best Android phones on the market. If you’re looking for the best of the best and can stomach the high price tag, the Note 8 is a phone that won't disappoint.

“If you’re looking for the best of the best and are willing to pay a premium for it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is right up your alley.”

Meet the Samsung Galaxy Note 8

After the fiasco with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung had a lot to prove with the Note 8. Fortunately, they seem to have delivered. The Galaxy Note 8 is an all-around great phone that sports some of the best hardware on the market. It’s been praised for its fluid performance and stunning display, two features that we’ve come to expect from Samsung’s high-end phones.

What we like

There’s a ton of things to like about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The first thing you’ll notice is its screen. The Note 8 features one of the largest screens on the market, which could be a benefit or a drawback depending on who you talk to. Long story short, the screen is big, curved, and beautiful. That means it’s perfect for streaming videos or playing games.

Speaking of playing games, the Note 8 has some of the most impressive technical specs around. That means that it will outperform the vast majority of phones that you can buy today. If you’re looking for the best of the best and are willing to pay a premium for it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is right up your alley.

The phone is made out of a combination of metal and glass, giving it the feeling of a high-end device that it is. You also get the handy S Pen stylus that lets you write or draw in certain apps. The inclusion of a microSD slot is also a nice touch. Having the ability to add extra storage makes sure that you’ll be hard-pressed to run out of space while taking pictures with the phone’s excellent camera.

What we don’t like

Unfortunately, there are also a few drawbacks with the Galaxy Note 8. The large display, while pretty, ends up making the phone very tall and awkward to hold. While great for watching your favourite shows, it’s important that you can comfortably hold your phone and (maybe) even fit it in your pocket.

The decision to put the fingerprint sensor beside the camera on the back of the phone is a questionable choice. It can make unlocking the Note 8 a little bit of a hassle. It’s also a bit too easy to miss and smudge the camera lens instead. While it frees up more space on the front of the phone for the large screen, it is definitely a notable drawback.

Perhaps the most notable offender when it comes to this phone is the price tag. As one of the top phones on the market, it’s to be expected that the Galaxy Note 8 is a little on the pricey side. The cost of the phone, however, is a little excessive even once you consider its specs. That means a lot of customers will be priced out of buying the Galaxy Note 8. Still, it remains one of the top phones on the market for those who can afford it.

Should you buy it?

It’s easy to recommend the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. With some of the best performance you can get in a phone and a screen that stands above the crowd, the Note 8 is one of the best phones of 2017.

With that said, it’s also one of the most expensive phones you can buy. If you can sacrifice a little bit of performance and are okay without a large screen, there are other more affordable options that offer similar specs.
