Every setback has a major comeback. For Samsung, the issues of the previously recalled Note 7 seemed to banish in the shadows as the new Galaxy Note 8 steps into the light. Samsung seems to have taken serious steps in redeeming itself with this mega-sized phone holding the promise of finally making things right this time.
Fundamental Comparisons – Things that Make 8 Better Than 7
The Note 8 now has a more expansive 6.3-inch Infinity Screen compared to the previous 5.7-inch of the Note 7. The screen became bigger without adding significant dimensions to the actual body.
The new platform also seemed to receive major updates as the Note 8 now runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat), 6GB RAM, and has up to 256GB of storage. While the former Note 7 is equipped with Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow), 4GB of RAM, and only up to 64GB of storage.
The rear camera seemed to remain stagnant at 12 MP; however, the newer Note 8 comes with a dual camera with dual-LED (dual tone) flash, and 2 x optical zoom. All of which are non-existent with its predecessor. The front camera also received a major makeover; now packed with 8 MP compared to the previous 5 MP. Both phones can record 4K videos at 30 fps (frames per second).
The battery, however, took one step backward. This one now runs with a non-removable 3300 mAh battery while its forerunner has a little more juice at 3500 mAh.
Galaxy Note 8 – The Flagship of Productivity
Galaxy Note 8 is one of the most expensive smartphones in the market today. At the same time, it’s one of the most advanced. The big brother of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 made its debut with a bigger Infinity Display and more power in one. Ultimately, the Note 8 is for people who can handle the size as well as its price.
