Note per­fect?

Stuff (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Re­mem­ber the time Sam­sung’s Galaxy Note 7 was Stuff ’s cover star? We do. It was not a fun month, but time for­gives all sins and here we are one year later with a new Note to con­tend with. Hav­ing been burnt be­fore by a very sim­i­lar-look­ing mega-phone, we weren’t ini­tially sure what to make of this phoenix-like rise from the ashes. Then we picked up the Note 8’s S Pen sty­lus, con­jured up a ju­ve­nile stick-man draw­ing and re­mem­bered what it was that we loved about these phones in the first place: they’re built to do ab­so­lutely any­thing. In prac­tice, this means ev­ery­thing the Galaxy S8 is ca­pa­ble of and a lit­tle bit more. An added dual-lens cam­era serves up far su­pe­rior zoom ca­pa­bil­i­ties and hands you the chance to take fancy por­trait shots with art­fully blurred back­grounds. Aside from that cam­era-and-sty­lus combo, there isn’t all that much to dis­tin­guish this new Note from the S8. But do you know what? We loved that phone, and it didn’t ex­plode at ran­dom. Here’s hoping Sam­sung has learnt its oh-so-ex­plo­sive les­son this time around. As hot as… a phone that lit­er­ally caught fire (mi­nus the flammable bit) £tba / stuff.tv/note8
