Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 – Review


Another good news for the Samsung Galaxy fans. It  has been officially declared that AT&T are going to sell the GMS variant of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 also known as Samsung Galaxy Note 8 5110. This new gadget will be hitting American stores at a price of $399 from 21st June as a result of two-year contract between the two companies.


Samsung has always been trying to bring a device that can be of strong competition to Apple’s iPad. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 serves this purpose very well with the market experience that Samsung gained after selling Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note II.


Some key features of this new device are:

  • 8.0 inch 16M LCD capacitive touch screen with 16M color and 800 x 1280 pixels of resolution, giving it a pixel density of ~189 ppi.
  • Android OS v4.1.2 with the help of TouchWiz launcher for a better performance.
  • Deep system integration with a S pen active stylus
  • Rear cameras of 5 MP with auto focus and face detection features and 720p video recording at 30 frames per second.
  • 16 or 32 GB of internal memory and this can be upgraded to 64 GB through a microSD card.
  • The connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11, GPS, microUSB port, Bluetooth v4.0.
  • It also includes an infrared port
  • For audio options it has stereo speakers and 3.5 mm jack.
  • It is very slick as it is only 8.0 mm thick and weighs only about 338g
  • Video call is also supported as it has a 1.3 MP camera at its front.
  • Utility stuff like document editor and file manager is already installed and so are many other things.
  • It has a very rich video and audio codec support
  • It has a 4600 mAh, non-removable Li-Ion battery which gives it a talk time of 8 hours and the music play of 120 hours


Its main disadvantages are:

  • Speakers are at bottom rather than being on the front which is a better position.
  • Inadequate satisfaction about the still image and video recording quality.
  • No FM radio

Due to all these reasons this tab is not able to match premium touch of iPad mini or even Galaxy Tab 7.7
