Samsung used to have a terrible reputation for butchering Android. But the Korean company has turned that around, and offers arguably the best take on Android today.
In addition to the Note 8â€™s convenient Edge Panel features, the device offers App Pair, Samsung Pay, Bixby, support for DeX, Knox security, and pro-level camera settings. Thanks to the elegance and polish of Samsungâ€™s Android skin, the Note 8 provides users with the most powerful software experience you can find.
The Note 8â€™s 6.3-inch Infinity Display has already been declared the marketâ€™s most impressive screen, but even hearing that doesnâ€™t prepare you for the first time you see it in person. With a screen-to-body ratio of 83-percent and no unsightly notches, it looks absolutely incredible. And with brightness up to 1,200 nits, it looks amazing even in bright daylight.
The juryâ€™s still out on whether or not Apple was right to ditch the headphone jack. Some people donâ€™t mind it, while others say itâ€™s user hostile. Whatever side of the fence you fall on, the simple fact is the iPhone X doesnâ€™t feature a headphone jack while the Galaxy Note 8 does. With so many other companies ditching the port, however, one has to wonder how much longer Samsung will hold out.
