2. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review
Is the Note 8 worth its price? Find out from our Samsung Note 8 review!
Without a doubt, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the most beautifully designed smartphones of 2017. Its appearance is not as curvy as the Galaxy S8’s, and the edges are noticeably sharper, which are the aesthetic many buyers prefer. The phone is coated with Gorilla Glass 5.0, and while it isn’t immune to breaking when dropped, the glass coating creates a unique feel.
The 6.3-inch screen may seem like it’s too big for most phone owners, but, in reality, the curved design and sloped edges of the device make it as convenient to hold in your hand as most 5.5-inch smartphones.
2. Software and performance
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes with a completely redesigned Samsung Experience Android skin, which means not only visual changes, but also zero bloatware, no more questionable sound and visual effects, and just pure joy from using one of the best versions of Android available today.
There is an intelligent virtual assistant called Bixby, similar to Siri in iOS and Cortana in Windows. Moreover, there is a split-screen feature, which has only received positive reviews to date. The only possible downside you may experience when using the Note 8 is the placement of the fingerprint scanner. It’s located just beside the cameras on the back of the phone and is not always convenient to reach.
All in all, the Galaxy Note 8 is one of the best performing smartphones of the year. You can rest assured that any of the newest and most advanced apps and games will run smoothly on your new Note 8.
3. Camera and battery
The Samsung Note 8 comes with a bigger-than-average battery, which is perfect for the larger screen and all the features the phone has to offer. You can expect to get a battery life of 24 hours. The fast charging technology is available as well and allows you to fully charge the device in about 100 minutes.
The camera of the new Samsung Galaxy may very well be the best one you’ve tried so far for three main reasons: it takes exceptionally clear and vivid photos; the upgraded camera app is a pleasure to use, and the new bokeh effect will turn everyday photos into masterpieces.
3. Samsung Note 8 release date and price
After all, that’s been said about the best Samsung smartphone of the year, you probably have just two questions left: what is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 price in Nigeria and when can I get it?
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 release date 2017 was mid-September for a dozen selected countries, while Nigerians had to wait longer to get their hands on the device. Finally, the phone became available for order this week, meaning you can become a proud Note 8 owner too!
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 price in naira has been another big concern for those who consider buying the new smartphone since it’s obvious it’s not going to be cheap. In Nigeria, the price for Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will range between ₦330,000 and ₦390,000.
