App Pairings are groupings of two apps that you can preset to launch together, by swiping in from the edge of the screen. That built-in heart rate monitor you forget still existed on Samsung phones now serves a purpose again. The speaker pumps out audio from the bottom edge of the handset, but given the Note 8’s height it’s unlikely that this will be in any way obscured by the palm of your hand. It’s impressive-looking, but also big and heavy – 9mm taller than any previous Note phone, and 195g. The aluminium and glass body is now IP68 water and dust resistant, which means that the phablet can survive submersion in up to 1.

And, because it comes with a quality 8MP front-facing camera, you've got an even better excuse to take stunning-looking selfies.You’ll have heard all about the ‘awkward’ positioning of the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S8, and people will no doubt be concerned by the fact this has not changed for the Note 8. Review summary: The Galaxy Note 8 earns points for an excellent display, useful S-pen functionality, outstanding cameras, and very solid overall performance. On either side the panel curves right round to the frame edge, leaving only a minimal bezel top and bottom in which to house the selfie camera, speaker and various sensors.

I found the pen to be extremely accurate; when I tapped out a grid of tiny dots, it didn't miss one. You can even use the S Pen in Live Message to create custom-made emojis and GIFs that include your own handwriting.It's only missing one thing: T-Mobile's new Band 71, which will give users additional rural coverage (it's currently only in the upcoming LG V30). It's crystal clear in the earpiece, and there's a powerful speakerphone with an Extra Volume option that boosts it loud enough to even be heard over traffic noise. Its problem is mindshare: as I used the phone, I kept asking "OK Google" things by reflex, not Bixby. It’s a multimedia powerhouse visually, but its bottom-firing speaker still had us cupping the bottom of the phone to get better audio. The Camera app is therefore a little different to what you get on the Galaxy S8, now showing options for Bixby Vision, Live Focus and Stickers directly below the composition window.

The on-screen button that replaces it works fine, but the fingerprint sensor is located on the back of the device and off-center – it’s a textbook flawed design, and the alternative iris scanner doesn’t always work when you want to unlock the phone. There's not going to be a feature (other than iOS, which is another story entirely) that will blow the Note 8 away. The Galaxy S8 was a big step in the right direction, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 finishes the job. Tap the button on its side to open the S Pen menu, which can optionally appear onscreen at all times via a floating icon.

The difference here is the larger screen makes features such as Multi Window – whereby you can use two apps onscreen at once – much more useful. In the Galaxy S8, Samsung’s own chip proved to be a smidge quicker than Qualcomm’s, and I’d expect that to hold here too.

Above the composition window you have options to toggle on Dual Capture and Full-screen Capture (18. The screen has the very narrow bezels of the Galaxy S8, with slight sloping on the back reminiscent of the Note 5. com and PC Magazine are among the federally registered trademarks of Ziff Davis and may not be used by third parties without explicit permission.When originally launched, we sung its praises and even placed it at the top of our best smartphones hierarchy. Google Assistant is on board too, living alongside Bixby, Samsung's own virtual assistant that's only just launched properly in the UK. Be warned that the camera will not shoot at the maximum resolution in Full-screen Capture mode, limiting your snaps to 7. For example, if it does not support one band, could make you not to have 4G coverage in rural areas or having bad coverage inside buildings, but having it without problems in cities. The Note8 is here and we can't help but feel the tension rising, especially in Europe where this is the first Note device to officially land in two years.
