The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 smartphone is the real Apple iPhone X competitor without any questions. Be it the specifications, pricing or design, everything about the Samsung phone is impressive and it also offers the freedom of the Android operating system.
After lots of pre-order announcements and goodies, the phone officially hits dealership stores in about 42 countries today. The company has confirmed that they will release it in more countries in the following weeks so that everyone could get a taste of this big and powerful smartphone from the reputed manufacturer.
When compared directly with the iPhone X, the Note 8 definitely has better specification. It sports a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display which is Samsung’s latest and superior screen compared to the previous iterations. On the inside, it is powered by a Snapdragon processor which may get upgraded to the 836 in the near future. The phone has 6 GB of RAM, 3,300 mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, iris scanner and is also resistant to dust & water.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has IP68 rating allowing you to easily take it in demanding conditions without breaking it. The dual camera system in the phone with 12 megapixel sensors in another highlight of the phone as it can produce kickass photographs, made possible by the optical stabilization. S-Pen is an exclusive feature which makes it easy and intuitive to use the large display.
The device costs $950 which is almost the same as the iPhone X. Apple’s device doesn’t have an iris scanner or finger print sensor making it difficult to use the bezel less phone. There is no 3.5mm audio jack, the OLED used is not as good as Samsung’s and other reasons help Galaxy Note 8 win the race on paper. Real life performance and reviews should be available soon so that you could make your decision.
