Samsung Note 8 finally hits the Kenyan market

Samsung Note 8 finally hits the Kenyan market

Always On Display: It's a subtle feature on the Note 8 that is found in a few other devices, such as the LG V30 and Moto devices, but once you have it on a device it is tough to go back to something like the iPhone 7 Plus where you can not just glance over and see basic status and notification information with no effort required by you.

Samsung's Note edition hit the market in 2011, releasing Smartphones that build on each other's functionality. Well, it appears the 8 Plus has to share that title with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8; DxOMark dubs the latter as "the best smartphone for zoom".

On the other, I don't think the use of the word "new" in conjunction with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus displays is totally honest, either. It also shows superior results in exposure, white balance, colour rendering, and an extremely quick autofocus to boot. The bokeh effect is impressive, but it doesn't work all the time. With these Samsung can earn more in total revenue from iPhone X displays and Chips than from these components from its own Galaxy S8. That's what brought down the Note 8's score to 94 points. For videos, they reported that there's no autofocus tracking in default mode and there's residual motion visible even while holding the camera still during a video recording.

Innovative technology: The Galaxy Note 8 offers fast charging and fast wireless charging, Samsung Pay with MST, Bluetooth 5.0, a microSD expansion card slot, ANT+ for connectivity to fitness devices, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. However, these scores would make little difference if you are tied to a specific ecosystem.

Misplaced your phone? Google Home can now help you find it
Given Home now supports individual profiles you won't have to worry about the Assistant calling your partner's phone either. The great thing about the new feature is that your misplaced smartphone will start ringing even if it's in silent mode.

How Samsung Wins With iPhone X's Expected Success
Last week , the camera benchmark team from DxOMark proclaimed the iPhone 8 Plus the best smartphone camera it has ever tested. However, after a month with the Note 8 , I still use it several times a day and I've come to rely on it for many things.

Apple Is Investigating Battery Swelling in iPhone 8 Plus
However, it is largely believed that the core Apple fans are anxiously waiting for the iPhone X, which will be out next month. Plus, the bloating issue doesn't appear to be putting anyone at risk, as the batteries are simply expanding and not exploding.

So keep this in mind Apple purist when you break the bank for your new X, you're in essence putting money in Samsung's pocket. Android fans would be happy with the Note 8 or Google's upcoming Pixel 2.

So despite having a similar overall score of 94 points, the Galaxy Note8 does better in photos with 100 while the iPhone 8 Plus scored 96. WIth rumors swirling of a possible iPhone X shortage due to their facial recognition feature, this news is kind of hilarious.

Apple's iPhone 8 is set to launch in South Africa in the coming months, while the Note 8 is now on sale locally.
