The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has been out for quite a while. Now we have got a hands-on review of this 8.0 inch tablet with the S-pen.
A Pretty responsive device
Screen is very bright
Unit is light and easy to hold
The 8″ screen is comfortable to read compared to 7″ tablet
The color is over saturated, color not as true as ipad
the screen rotation is lagging behind
the micro sd card might jam and stuck in the slot
Having absorbed from the experience of the older generation Note 10.1, Samsung is putting quite a considerable number of improvement in this Note 8.0. We find the Note 8.0 a quite responsive device given the CPU has been upgraded to an Exynoa 4412 1.2ghz quad core processor. It can do much better than any other tablets even surpassing Apple ‘s iPad. With additional RAM, it seems the device could handle more tasks at one time. I tried to flip pages rapidly and it didn’t fail me.
With the new WXVGA 1280x 800 eight -inch display built in, the screen serves as a very big leap in terms of display technology. It is bright and rich in colour. However, we find sometimes the colour is over-saturated So it lose the reality color. In this regard, it might not be able to compete against that of retina display. Indeed, a 8.0 inch is not too big and also not to small at an appropriate size. It makes it perfect for reading newspaper and maybe books.
The Note 8.0 is extremely light and handy. Just like what they do with the advertisement, the Note 8.0 seems light enough for you to wave around, easily writing things on the go…etc.
Bad things about this Note 8.0, some old problems remain. If you compare it to iPad. The device seems lagging behind in terms of screen rotation. It takes around 2-3 seconds to be rotated So it is still annoying sometimes especially when you feel doubtful and turning it from right to left and then left to right without getting a good result.
It seems to us that the micro SD card slot is a but problematic for those who need to frequently inject or eject the card. We find it embarrassing sometimes because the card might be jammed in the middle and So need to remove it carefully.
