Design and display

The infinity display

Fronting the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a 6.3-inch infinity display with Quad HD resolution, wrapping around both sides of the smartphone. It’s really tall, just like the S8’s, making for a bigger and better viewing experience. 


Awe-inspiring build

The slim profile of the Note 8 is just another one of its attractive features. It measures 8.6mm, leaving just enough room for the S Pen to slot in the bottom. And there’s also no more home button under the display, now on the side of the handset.



Doubling up on the lens

The Note 8’s dual lens 12MP camera guarantees great photos. It comes built with OIS for smooth video, and 2x optical zoom - so you can get closer without losing any quality in your shots. 

4K video recording

When a still photograph isn’t enough, and you want to capture every last detail, turn your attention to the Note 8’s 4K filming capabilities. And seeing as the resolution is so high, you can watch it back on a much bigger screen with out losing any quality.  

Under the hood

Wireless charging

A massive 3,300mAh battery will keep the Samsung powered up all day, and because convenience is more important than ever, wireless charging is built in. So when you need to top up on power, simply place the Note 8 in its dock – no wires required (sold separately).   


Raw power

A smartphone this size needs a lot of power behind it. With whopping 6GB RAM you’ll never have to worry about slowing down, no matter how many apps you’re running at once.


There’s also 64GB of internal storage for all your favourite photos, songs and videos, but if that’s not enough you can add a microSD card of up to 256GB.


Water and dust-resistant

Just like the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Note 8 is built to withstand fresh water and dust. Certified as IP68, the Note will be safe in 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes. 

Iris scanner

An iris scanner is built onto the front of the Note 8, letting you unlock to the phone with the unique pattern of your eyes. It’s even more secure than the traditional fingerprint reader, but if you prefer the ‘touch to unlock’ function, there’s a fingerprint sensor around the back next to the camera. 

New S Pen stylus

Samsung’s new and improved S Pen is now smarter than ever. A re-engineered, finer tip gives you a more natural writing experience, and boasts over 4,000 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Samsung DeX station

The Note 8 has a massive display, but if you want to go even bigger, you can connect it to a DeX Station. By docking the phone in this smart cradle, you can boost your mobile experience up to a full-scale desktop, with all your favourite apps automatically resizing for use with a mouse and keyboard.


Pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and receive a DeX Station with it. 


What is the f-stop on the rear wide-angle and telephoto camera?

The telephoto camera has F/2.4 and the wide-angle camera f/2.4  

What is the pressure sensitivity on the S Pen?

4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Which brand of headphones does the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 come with?

With every Samsung Galaxy Note 8 , you’ll receive a pair of earbuds tuned by AKG in the box as standard.

What type of SIM card is compatible with the Samsung Note 8?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 uses a Nano SIM card, the smallest of the three sizes

Which VR headset can I use with the Samsung Note 8?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is great for VR. You can use the new Samsung Gear VR headset with it, which comes with handheld controller for an even more immersive experience.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone I brought this phone last week so still exploring and getting used to it. However I have to say I am so impressed! The camera is absolutely phenomenal even without using the live focus option. The screen resolution is brilliant. Watching videos and playing games on this phone is amazing due to the screen size. The battery lasts all day even with all the features on and using it constantly. Would defiantly recommend getting this phone. I have previously had notes before and I am so happy I have gone back. The s7 I had previously is a good phone but in comparison to this I'm glad I waited the few extra months instead of getting the s8. The only negative to this phone is it is big so can't easily put it in your pocket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome mobile Was deciding been this and the iPhone 8'plus and having viewed and tried both, there was no competition. Note 8 is in a different league. Much better screen quality and overall finish is so much better. I've always loved Apple products but sick of the same upgrades where Samsung are leaps and bounds ahead with this one. Buy it, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic phone I am a previous Note user having had the note 2 and 4. The note 4 was by far my favourite phone I have ever had. I had the S7 edge last year and it was fine but I missed my note. I thankfully avoided last years Note 7 debacle and trusted that this year they would get it right. There are lots of features that haven't been shouted about so I do recommend using youtube to get some hints and tips. Things like live focus on the front camera for example. I have heard many reviewers say it doesn't have it. Not true it does. You just need to know where to look. The camera is phenomenal, the screen is out of this world. I have had no battery issues as yet either. I've heard it said if you already have the S8 plus then probably not worth the upgrade, this is probably true. However if you are coming from anything prior to the S8 then it is definitely worth it. Best phone currently available by a mile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone I have ever used!! This phone is by far the best bit of tech I have ever had. I managed to get around 30 Apps all in the background that unlike all the other phones I have used all have to refresh when I switch from app to app with the note 8 you just simply carry on where you left off. This is most likely down to the six gigs of Ram.
