The announcement of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 slightly eclipsed the Galaxy S8. Everyone is talking only about the novelty, forgetting that the current flagship is still good. Let’s look at the main points why buying Galaxy S8 is up to date.
In late August, Samsung Galaxy S8 is sold at a price of 929 dollars. The figure is large, but all surpassed Note 8, pre-order for which is 1013 dollars. Also do not forget that the novelty will not be cheaper for a long time, but the S8 will inevitably decline in value.
The camera is still good
The main difference between Galaxy Note 8 and S8 is a dual camera. Novelty has two sensors of 12 MP, one of which with aperture f / 1.7, the other – with f / 2.4. It is noteworthy that both cameras have optical stabilization. This makes it possible to double the image without losing quality, and also blur the background.
If you do not need these features, then the Galaxy S8 has almost the same camera, capable of delivering an excellent result in many usage scenarios.
The hardware was not badly affected
By “hardware” devices are almost identical. Is that the novelty added in the amount of RAM: 6 GB instead of 4. Also Note 8 supports a new docking station Dex, which turns a smartphone into a small computer.
Software is still one of the best
Both smartphones come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and most likely both, and the other gadget will receive the eighth version of the “green robot” almost at the same time.
The main advantage of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in comparison with S8 is the S pen. It allows you to take notes and make various entries. Such a tool will be useful not only for professionals, but also for ordinary users.
The main complaint about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the large dimensions of the device. So, the S8 is smaller and better in the hand. Due to the transition from the aspect ratio of 16: 9 to 18.5: 9, the Koreans managed to fit a large screen into a relatively compact case.
