User Reviews 1 User Reviews Performance is smooth and responsive thanks to Android 4.1 and Samsung's software enhancements. Multitasking features like multi-window view work well. I'm impressed it runs smoothly despite Samsung adding a lot of software on top of Android.

User Reviews 2 the Note 8 makes compromises in some hardware areas to keep costs reasonable. The battery life is just decent at best - power users might struggle to get through a full day. And the rear camera is nothing special, lacking features beyond the basics.
- Android Authority
User Reviews 3 Software-wise, the Note 8 unsurprisingly includes a heavy dose of Samsung's TouchWiz interface on top of Android. This brings some useful additions, but likely unnecessary bloat for many.

  • Design 8 / 10

Samsung has released its latest tablet, the Galaxy Note 8. This new 8-inch tablet aims to strike a balance between portability and screen size while bringing some unique features to stand out from the competition.

Sporting a thin and lightweight plastic body, the Note 8 feels comfortable for gripping in one hand, allowing easy pocketability. It weighs just 338 grams while measuring a slim 8mm thick.

The 8inch display hits a nice sweet spot, being more portable than 10-inch tablets but still providing ample real estate for games, ebooks, and videos.

Powering the device is a zippy quad-core Samsung processor with 2GB of RAM. This keeps performance smooth when multitasking or flipping through content-rich apps and web pages. On the software side, Android 4.1 brings enhanced functionality through features like split-screen multi-window views.

But what truly sets the Note 8 apart is its S Pen stylus. This allows for precision input, hovering previews, quickly jotting notes, and more – essentially functioning as an extension of your finger. Users report the S Pen integrating seamlessly into their workflow after just a short adjustment period.

In the camera department, a basic 5MP rear shooter lacks bells and whistles beyond the basics. And with only 16GB of internal storage, users may need to utilize the microSD card slot. Battery life is rated as just decent too, typically lasting about 1-2 days on a charge.

Priced at a $399 MSRP, the Note 8 costs more than rival mid-sized Android tablets. Consumers mainly pay for those unique and useful S Pen features. However, more casual users primarily wanting media playback may be better served by cheaper options like the Nexus 7.

In the end, the slickly designed Galaxy Note 8 brings nice versatility between work and play. For buyers needing extra pen-enabled productivity on a portable tablet, it delivers compelling overall value. But users focused just on entertainment may want to save money with alternatives lacking the Samsung-specific stylus functionality.
