About Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - Review, Specs + more

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 with XXL display, dual camera and very powerful hardware is one to watch. It has since been replaced by the Galaxy Note 9, and soon the Note 10, but is it still worth considering as Samsung still manufacture it? Let's find out...

2017's top model from the South Koreans offered many additional functions - such as the comfortable S-pen operation.  After the debacle that was the Galaxy Note 7, the entire technology world looked forward to the successor.

The Galaxy Note8 is 6.3 inches and was not only the largest, but also the most expensive phablet at the time of launch, but now that it can be had for around £400, it still has a lot of luxury in the luggage. It is aimed at tech-savvy and demanding customers who are looking for a versatile all-rounder for work and play.

S-Pen is feature-ready

What distinguishes the 8 from premium-class smartphones like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +? Of course, its the  S-pen - typical of the Note series. This has been supplemented with many functions that offer great added value in practice:

  • Focus image areas without having to zoom in on the whole image
  • Translate words and calculate currencies and units of measurements
  • Write notes on the lockscreen and then attach them to the always-on display
  • The S-Pen you integrate when not in use right down in the case.

Functional diversity can also be recognised with regard to the software.Our reviewer noted that it comes with Andoird 8.1, not the latest version now - but still very capable and can be upgraded anyway once the Network allows it.

Build and Design

Samsung's Note 7 was a gorgeous handset, but the Note 8 is in a different league with its Infinity Display. It's not entirely bezel-less, but it's close enough, with a screen-to-body ratio of 83 percent and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. 

In real terms, there's about a centimetre of frame visible above and below the display, but the rest is all immaculately polished and largely fingerprint-free glass, with a load more space for enjoying media and games, and for working with multiple apps at once. 

On either side the panel curves right round to the frame edge, leaving only a minimal bezel top and bottom in which to house the selfie camera, speaker and various sensors. It's a different - and much preferred - design to the first 'bezel-less' phone we saw, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, which has only a bottom bezel and requires you to turn it upside down to use the bizarrely placed selfie camera

To achieve these slim bezels Samsung has removed the physical home button, moving the fingerprint scanner round to the rear beside the camera, and incorporating a pressure-sensitive home button within the display itself. 

The latter takes a little getting used to, but you can always wake up the phone using the power button (don't get it confused with the dedicated Bixby button, as we often did) or popping out the S Pen stylus. 

Samsung has come a very long way from the days of dimpled plastic covers, and it does not compromise on design. 

Infinity Edge Display is intense

The near-borderless Super AMOLED screen with Quad HD+ resolution is among the best according to experts. Whether it's black level, contrast, colour reproduction or brightness - the very sharp display masters everything brilliantly and is easy to read.

The dual camera comes with 2-fold Optical Image Stabilizer (Dual-OIS), this is unusual on smartphones because most people use this feature only with the help of the main camera. According toTechAdvisor, it is recommended to familiarise yourself with the technology. Only then can strengths such as Live Focus for blur effects before and after photos and dual capture best use.

According to our reviewer, the camera performs especially well in low light; videos are also recorded excellently.

Future-proof and powerful

Its versatility is proven by combining the Note 8 with the Samsung DeX docking station. It integrates the mobile phone into your workstation with monitor, keyboard and mouse. So you can make apps, e-mail programs and text formatting on the big screen while working with multiple documents. In any case, the model shows as a future-proof working device with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of memory. Small weaknesses are things like the positioning of the fingerprint sensor wich is placed on the back and hard to reach for left-handers.

Even though the battery is 3300 mAh - smaller than the 3500 mAh power sender in the S8+, it comes with a quick charge function and can be charged wirelessly.

The oneCOMPARE verdict

With the Galaxy Note 8 many good reasons to buy it exist - like the noble design, the brilliant OLED display and the highly regarded performance. The S-Pen is very easily integrated and distinguishes the model as the dual camera from the upscale S8 series.

The launch price was extortionate, but this has since come down a long way, and if you're not after an expensive Samsung device for the sake of it, then you could do much worse than buying the Note 8 in 2019.

Galaxy Note 8: What's the cheapest monthly deal?

Galaxy Note 8 deals: How long does delivery take?

If your device is in stock with the retailer, then most orders will be shipped by them within 24 hours so you could have your phone tomorrow morning. If it's a pre-order then we will let you know the approximate delivery date

Is SIM Only better for Galaxy Note 8?

Generally speaking, SIM Only is cheaper but you don't have the benefit of paying monthly for your handset like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, so it only really makes financial sense if you are in the fortunate position to be able to buy the handset outright first. Yes, it works out cheaper overall if you can do that, at least nearly always - but it is really a personal preference. Find out more about SIM Only deals here

Not sure which mobile network to go for?

oneCompare completely gets it, it's not easy trying to understand the differences of each mobile network operator. Is o2 any better than Vodafone for this smartphone, when it comes to coverage? Or worse? It's a real minefield. Another example, which is better? A Samsung Galaxy Note 8 ee contract or a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Tesco Mobile contract?

The reality is, it can make a huge difference to your satifaction with the overall product. Who wants to have cruddy download speeds? But never fear - oneCompare is here. Don't forget to check our latest Blog posts below.

Before you decide to buy a contract or handset, it's important to know if you'll get a signal. Who wants to be walking around into mobile network's blackholes?! After all, ordering your brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 contract only to find you can't use your data (never mind going over the allowance!) in your own house will be pretty not cool.

A simple website a number of our visitors have used is Open Signal which maps signals across all major mobile networks within the UK.

So which network has the best signal?

According to Which?, in their recent research, covering June to August 2017, they focused on 4G performance and found that EE offered the fastest average 4G download speeds of the four networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). While EE customers enjoyed average 4G download speeds of 29Mbps, those using the O2 network had to put up with an average speed of just 15.1Mbps.

EE's network was also at the top of the list when it came to the availability of its 4G signal, with customers able to access it 78.5% of the time. Customers with Three had the poorest access to a 4G signal - they were able to access it just 57.1% of the time - that's only just more than half the time, 24/7!

Should I buy SIM-Only, and will it save money?

In truth, this answer will depend on your personal financial circumstances, in combination with your mobile phone usage requirements.

Out of our 2918 Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deals, our cheapest Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deal over the entire life of the contract is £716.99, this includes any upfront handset cost and cashback redemption.

oneCompare's team have seen a number of scenarios where our cheapest contract is actually cheaper than buying the phone SIM-free without any contract, this loophole can be a great way to save on your new phone and is largely possible as the Mobile networks subsidise the handset cost to gain you as a new customer.

A relatively simple SIM Only comparison calculation is to add up how much a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 SIM Free phone would cost to buy i.e. this is where you buy the phone without a contract and pay for the full cost of the handset upfront.

The benefit here is flexibility: you're able to then compare the SIM Only contract market where Mobile networks often give you far better usage allowances and shorter contract terms. Once you've found a SIM Only contract that meets your needs, note the monthly cost over the course of 24 months and add this to your SIM Free Samsung Galaxy Note 8 handset cost. You're now in a great position to compare this cost to a regular Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Contract.

Did you know? You can compare SIM only deals from Sky, o2, Vodafone and all the other networks with oneCompare!

Pro Tip: A great way to save a few extra pounds when comparing SIM Only contracts, is to consider purchasing a pre owned Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phone from the likes of MusicMagpie who provide warranties and flexible handset payment terms.
