Samsung Galaxy Note 8
20 hours ago
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 packs a good screen, plenty of power and that all important stylus for sketching. It's quite a lot more expensive than the iPad mini though, and its plastic construction doesn't feel anywhere near as luxurious.
Cons: Too expensive; Some Samsung software didn't work; Plastic design feels cheap.
Summary: The story of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 really starts with a different device — the Galaxy Note 10.1 . Samsung advertised a power-user's dream device: letting you edit documents or draw with a pen, do more than one thing at a time, and even take handwritten notes like it's 1746 or something. Oh, and be a tablet and do all the things a tablet should.
Pros: S Pen is a great drawing tool, Fast, consistent performance, Light and thin
Cons: Samsung software is overbearing, Weak, poor speakers, Display resolution is quickly becoming obsolete
Excerpt: AT&T released their version June 21st, 2013. As per the norm around here we actually use things for several months before we write a full review. (Shrugs) We don’t like to give you initial impressions because they change frequently and by then you might have read our article, gone out… spent your money… and a few months later said “Wow I wish I bought… ANYTHING other than this.
Excerpt: In the highly competitve world of tablets, there can only be room for so many products before the category begins to feed on itself and sales begin to suffer. These punchy little processing powerhouses become a commodity like anything else and consumers tend to vote with their wallets when there is no point of differentiation.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 – the premium tablet that is also a smartphone
4 July 2013
Conclusion: The Galaxy Note 8.0 launched last month, at a starting price of $399 for the Wifi-only model – yes, that is a pretty steep price considering that the iPad mini starts at $329 . Even more puzzling is that the US is only getting the Wifi-only model for now, which is weird since the ability to make calls is a touted feature of the Note 8.0.
Conclusion: Our previous review of the larger 10.1" Samsung Galaxy Note found a tablet that offered high specifications and excellent features, particularly in the form of multi-tasking and the S-Pen stylus, at a competitive price. As far as the features on the smaller Galaxy Note 8 are concerned, we're happy to say that Samsung have kept most and they even improved on some areas of the specifications.
Pros: Excellent, fast performance, Superb S Pen stylus, Split screen multitasking, IR emitter
Cons: Expensive compared to competition, Build quality could be better, Previous gen screen resolution
Summary: The Note 510 is a great performer with lacklustre build quality. The iPad mini is better built and has a larger apps ecosystem. The Galaxy Note 510 on the other hand has voice-calling, a better display, the S Pen functionality, expandable storage, multi-window capabilities and the Android OS with access to the Google Play store and Samsung app store. Both choices are good, and it comes down to price, and ecosystem preference for the user.
Pros: Display has good viewing angles, Solid battery life, Multi-window is handy, S Pen utilities
Cons: Build quality isn't the best, Too big to hold to your ear for calls
