The award for the Galaxy Note 8 was palpable, as it includes the state-of-the-art design language and it is one of the very most powerful and feature-rich Android phone in the market.

For the uninitiated, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a beautiful 6.3-inch super AMOLED screen with Infinity Display feature, which makes the screen cover more than 75-percent of the front-panel offering rich viewing experience and enhancing exterior looks by several notches in comparison to earlier generation model or any other phone on the market, for example.

Inside, it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core/Samsung Exynos 8895 octa-core (with regards to the region of sale), 6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB/256GB storage space and a 3,300mAh battery with fast wire/wireless charging capabilities.

So far as the photography is concerned, Galaxy Note 8 comes with top-of-the-line camera hardware. It houses dual-camera system, one 12 MP main camera (Wide-angle lens with f/1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus) and a 12 MP Telephoto camera (f/2.4 aperture and 2x Optical Zoom) with OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), and on the front, it features impressive a wide-angle 8MP snapper with f/1.7 aperture.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 includes new S Pen with improved pressure sensitivity and more features. One significant aspect is the Screen off the memo, which allows the user to consider up to one-hundred webpages of notes when they remove the S Pen, pin notes to the Always On Screen (AOD) and make edits straight from the AOD, as well.
