Yesterday, the launch of the Galaxy Note 8 in Peru took place, and here is a video with all the incidents of the event! They even won me one in the draw they made!
Note 8 is already sold in Peru and as you will remember, we have a phone with:
- Exynos 8895 processor
- 6.3 ″ Super AMOLED screen (2960 x 1440 pixels)
- 12 MP Dual camera (Wide: f / 1.7 / Telephoto f / 2.4). OIS
- 6 GBs of RAM
- 64 GBs of Expandable Storage
- 3,300 mAh
Some information about my first impressions from last week (the review comes out next week!)
Something that surprised me quite a bit, however, is how much it helps to have Android 7.1.1 and an additional 2 GBs of RAM in giving us a smoother interface, a smoother user experience than the S8 Plus. Yes, the processor is exactly the same, but based on the improvements that Android 7.1.1 brought in battery issues and improvements while the S8 Plus is still on Android 7.0, they have eliminated those mini-lags or small pauses that occur from time to time. on the S8 when, for example, it was quickly pulling the notification bar. The phone itself feels smoother, more responsive than the S8, which are things you notice after spending so much time on the phone.
However, including the S-Pen meant a battery sacrifice: because the S-Pen must go inside On the phone, the Note 8's battery is lower than the S8 Plus's by 300 mAh (3,500 mAh for the S8 Plus, versus 3,300 mAh for the Note 8). It is not a hugedifference and actually I've been getting good results. But it is a pity that for the top-of-the-range phone from Samsung, it was not possible to include a larger one. Yes, I am aware that the battery was the big problem of the Note 7, so it had to be withdrawn from the market, but it would not have bothered me to add an additional few millimeters to the phone and a dozen more grams, in order to have a 4,000 mAh battery, like Mate 9, for example.
