I felt comfortable when using Galaxy Note 8 over the last week. Though the screen is large 6.3”, it is not too difficult to do most operations daily. About the camera, I think there is a big step forward. The camera quality is good which allows snapshots in all lighting conditions. Note series’ fans won’t miss Note 8 because of very significant improvements.

I don’t think Galaxy Note 8 has too many breakthroughs, but the dual camera and S-Pen really make big differences. S-Pen helps Samsung remain a big gap with its rivals in the large-screen market segment.

I still cannot find any inconvenience when using Note 8. It makes me feel comfortable as it can satisfy all my requirements. The number of customers booking Note 8 is very high in Vietnam.

I think Note 8 is the best product of Samsung so far with beautiful design useful features as well as additional services. However, there is one thing with the battery. The usage time is not considerably longer than Galaxy S8+.

Being a reporter, I find S-Pen very convenient. With the pen, it's easy to make notes, edit pictures or make annotations. It helps me a lot in my work. Though it is expensive, it will succeed thanks to associated services like Galaxy Gift.

I still cannot find any defect. In general, flagships have no problems except the high price. I like the dual camera of Note 8, while the screen seems to be more beautiful than the old Notes. I think the manufacturer will succeed with Note 8 despite the failure of Note 7 because there are still many Note fans.

Analysts predict that the competition between iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8, the flagships of the two technology giants, will be the ‘real duel of the year’. Their excellent features explain why they have the sky high prices of $1,000.

Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X have amazingly similar designs. Both of them are made of metal and glass and both have infinity display screen and dual camera. The difference  is that while Galaxy Note 8 has kept the fingerprint sensor, and iPhone X has a face detection feature to unlock the phone.
