Samsung Galaxy Note8 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note8 is here, and there is quite a bit of excitement partly because the Note series has seen a setback for its Note7 model and it is the first officially launched Note Series phablet in two years in Europe.

Samsung has decided not to introduce any innovative features this time. Instead, it has just supersized the specs to improve speed and user experience. Samsung never intended the Note series to be a mainstream mobile phone – as opposed to the Galaxy S series. As we will see in the Note8 review, the Note series has a specific loyal following, and Note8 has been launched to appeal to that market.
