lephone excessively. The Note 8 acts like a major, borderless glass canvas for your imperative written by hand notThe Note 8 has the best enormous show on a cell phone and goes about as Samsung’s huge telephone rebound story, compensating for a year ago’s Note 7 review. It has a far reaching 6.3-inch ‘Endlessness Display,’ quicker 6GB of RAM execution and two extraordinary back cameras, which signify a standout amongst the most costly telephones ever. Simply don’t expect record-breaking battery life from its typically normal measured battery that avoids any risk. It’s the best huge telephone you can purchase, in the event that you can deal with the colossal size and similarly enormous cost.
Indeed, even in 2018, the Galaxy Note 8 remains the greatest reconsidering of Samsung’s best cell phones for profitability, and all that could possibly be needed to right the significant wrongs of the reviewed Note 7. This is a super estimated mea culpa.
Price and release date
- At $929 (£869, AU$1,499), it’s the most expensive (non-Apple) phone you’ll buy
- Released on September 15 in US and UK, September 22 in Australia
The Galaxy Note 8 release date was Friday, September 15 in the US and UK, while Australia got the new phone on September 22. It’s readily available.
The official Note 8 price is $929 (£869, AU$1,499), and US carriers have it for as much as $40 a month for 24 months, though we’d suggest getting the unlocked, carrier-agnostic version. You can find it cheaper via Amazon US or eBay. Either way, it’s going to be the most expensive smartphone you’ve ever bought. The Galaxy S8 Plus, for comparison, cost $829 (£779, AU$1,349) at launch, but you can now get Plus for around $699 in the US, while Galaxy S8 deals make the smaller version almost half the price of the Note 8.
Design and display
- 6.3-inch ‘Infinity Display’ redefines the Note look and feel
- But it’s 9mm taller than any Note phone – it’s the new big
- Water-resistant up to 1.5m (5ft) for 30 minutes
- The best color, Deep Sea Blue, only just launched in the US
The Note 8 maximizes Samsung’s dual curved edge and nearly bezel-less Infinity Display to the point where this phone feels like a mini tablet from the future. It’s impressive-looking, but also big and heavy – 9mm taller than any previous Note phone, and 195g.

The fingerprint sensor has marginally improved
- No physical home button means a rear fingerprint sensor
- It’s further away from the camera vs the S8 and S8 Plus sensor
- Iris scanner and face unlock are poor substitutes
We hate the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 8, just as we did on the S8 and S8 Plus. Maybe a tiny bit less, but we still don’t like its off-center rear location for the same reason: we keep blindly smudging the far-too-close dual-lens camera. It’s really difficult to unlock the phone
