  • Summary: Well, its a very nice tablet. The S pen works flawlessly. that is where it excels. The Quad core processor is needed in all Samsung Tablets. This one has a quad core, but without that it would suffer like the other Samsung tablets. I ultimately returned mine. Not because it was terrible, but because the screen was very noticeably 1280 x 800. The pixel grid is easy to spot and a premium tablet like this one should have at least 1920 x 1080.

Really dislike MHL

Junior808, Samsung
19 March 2014
  • Summary: My review is focused on the Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) connection. Instead of having a mcro-HDMI it has the MHL. This means I have to connect a MHL adapter to my device, a hdmi cable from the adapter to the laptop, PC or TV (some adapter have built-in HDMI cable), and connect my power adapter from a power source to my MHL adapter. The purpose of the power source is to power the device since HD video can consume a lot of battery.
  • Pros: fast, stylish
  • Cons: mhl connnection

This Is An Awesome Tablet - But Woeful Battery Life?

Maxy0422, Samsung
7 January 2014
  • Summary: This is the best tablet I have owned and it's super-fast. But the battery life is woeful, on this site it states 8 hours. No it won't do 8 hours, not even in standby mode. If you are using this tablet 2 to 4 hours is the limit. My partner has the 10.1 Note 2014 edition and it has a larger processor with more RAM it will do 8 hours easy. But the Galaxy Note 8 won't.
  • Pros: Bright display, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, bad battery life

  • Summary: The Note 8 inch is a nice tablet. It would be better if you could run apps directly from the sd card, but otherwise it does the job it was purchased for.

NOT a good WORK machine

hal, Staples
6 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This is a good machine if you do NOT need to synchronize files between it and a PC. It is OK for pictures and music, but files such as word and powerpoint must be manually synchronized. This is due to the fact that the machine must be mounted as a media device instead of a lettered drive on the PC. If you do not have a need to sync large amounts of data, this is a great machine.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy to Use, Portable
  • Cons: No File Sync

No flash drive

knyquil, ABT Electronics
27 November 2013
  • Summary: Overall I love my Samsung tablet, but I would have been better off with a Microsoft tablet. I'm just annoyed with the functionality of the note. However, with introduction of the S4 mini these items could work cohesively to hit the mark.
  • Pros: Built-In Speakers, Durable, Lightweight, Quality, Realistic color, s-pen
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, Expensive, flashdrive

An expensive e-reader

NillaSistah, ABT Electronics
17 November 2013
  • Summary: I paid $500 for my Galaxy Note 8.0 and was so excited to make this my everyday go to for Gmail, Facebook, shopping, reading and daily alarm. Reading on this tablet is great with Overdrive, but the apps will not allow you to open any links. So when you go to Facebook to open a video to You Tube is does not work. When you try to open any attachment in Facebook it does not work.
  • Pros: Great alarm, Great E-reader, Realistic color
  • Cons: cannot make use of apps, Did not meet expectations, Expensive
