Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review

mobilesyrup.com
9 May 2014
  • Summary: The Note 8.0 is one of the best Android tablets on the market, but it’s difficult to recommend over the cheaper and in many ways superior iPad mini, based on the latter’s app selection alone. You can find the Galaxy Note 8.0 for around $400 from major retailers, but it should come down in price fairly shortly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it at $299 or even $349, but at $399 it’s a bit of a stretch.
  • Pros: - Fast, stable and phone app friendly - Screen is relatively sharp with good viewing angles - S Pen is hugely improved over previous generations - Battery life is sufficient for most use cases - Preloaded pen-centric apps are useful
  • Cons: - Build quality leaves a lot to be desired - Strange array of hardware buttons biases portrait mode - Expensive - Limited selection of tablet apps - Rear camera is grainy and unnecessary

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • 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

Samsung Galaxy 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

Samsung Galaxy Note 510 Review

thinkdigit.com
20 June 2013
  • 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

Review Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet

Notebookcheck
30 May 2013
  • Summary: Bridging the gap. The Galaxy Note 8.0 with its powerful hardware and S Pen is designed to seamlessly integrate into Samsung's Galaxy portfolio and fill the gap between 5.5-inch and 10.1-inch devices. Can Samsung continue their success with this new member and potentially outsell the iPad Mini? We will have to see.
  • Pros: Fast SoC, Very bright display, Lots of RAM, Price, Phone functionality, The tabphone feels good to the touch and lies comfortably in the hand. The price of around 460 Euro (~$595) seems justified for the features offered, and especially since Galaxy Notes are usually a lot more expensive right after launch.
  • Cons: No FullHD display, Contrast too low and black value too high, Battery life not that satisfying, Power adapter gets warm under load, Better contrast and a lower black values for the display. It would also be nice if the battery would last another hour longer.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review: In Depth

Recombu
24 May 2013
  • Conclusion: If you’re a Samsung Galaxy S3 or iPhone owner, jealous of all the S Pen prodding Note 2 folk out there, the Note 8.0 could be the perfect tablet for you. If you’re a student or doodler, in need of a pen-based device, the Note 8.0 could suit you down to a t. If indeed you’re none of the above and just want 8-inches of powerful tablet with a pen, we’d still quite happily recommend the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, it’s a good bit of kit.
  • Pros: Great suite of applications, Thin body and light, compact design, S Pen is extremely functional given the screen size, Powerful
  • Cons: Mediocre screen resolution, Plastic build won't appeal to all, Ergonomics of using as a phone questionable, Expensive
