Big and powerful, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is made for smartphone enthusiasts and power users. It stands out with being Samsung’s first dual-camera phone, enabling real 2x zoom and background blur effects. It is also the first Galaxy Note device built around the newer 18.5:9 display aspect ratio, which allows it to fit a huge, 6.3-inch display in a body not impossible to handle. The S-Pen – a trademark feature for the Note series – is now more precise and more useful with more features built around it. And no less importantly, the phone is built to higher safety standards than its predecessor.
