Sam­sung Note 8 vs. Ap­ple iPhone 8

Well, T3, what have we here?

Quite pos­si­bly your next phone - if you like ‘em big, that is. The Note 8 is Sam­sung’s su­per-sized new hand­set, sport­ing an S8+ beat­ing 6.3-inch screen. It’s huge, backed up by slightly more weight and larger di­men­sions over its ‘smaller’ sib­ling.

It looks like the S8!

Doesn’t it just? The Note 8 fea­tures Sam­sung’s sig­na­ture In­fin­ity Edge Su­per AMOLED dis­play, pack­ing an eye-sear­ing QHD+ dis­play just like the S8, so it’ll look gor­geous from any an­gle. It’s got some ex­tra us­abil­ity, though, thanks to the in­cluded S Pen sty­lus, which gives the Note 8 a pro­duc­tiv­ity-on-the-go ad­van­tage for some tasks.

Wow. Is it speedy?

You bet. It fea­tures an octa-core 64-bit 10nm pro­ces­sor and 6GB RAM. The only stick­ing point is the smaller 3,300mAh bat­tery – we re­ally hope Sam­sung has op­ti­mised An­droid 7.1.1 to en­sure all-day bat­tery life.

Tell me about that cam­era…

Ah, nice spot. The Note 8’s most strik­ing fea­ture is its dual cam­era setup. With a wide-an­gle 12MP Dual Pixel lens and a tele­photo 12MP, you’ll be able to get reg­u­lar shots and then zoom in close to ob­jects with­out los­ing image clar­ity.

When can I get my (large) mitts on this?

Big hands re­joice, it’s due im­mi­nently.

Sam­sung’s big­gest phone could be its best. Nick Oda ntzis, Deputy EDIT OR
