Samsung Galaxy Note 8 humiliates iPhone 7 Plus on one thing

Samsung has really made a great terminal. After the Galaxy Note 7, a practically perfect device that was started last year, exploded (literally) around the world and threatened to destroy the company, Samsung has returned with Note 8, a larger phablet, more secure and full of features that embarrass all other big phones.

Many words have been written about the defective batteries of that model 7 and about whether Samsung could recover from the disaster. Samsung spent the last year preparing for the successful launch of Note 8, mainly with the Galaxy S8 and S8 + where there have been no reports of them on a suspected battery danger . The new battery chemistry, which better manages the use of energy and extends its life cycle.

A huge little phone

Calling something "small" and "huge" at the same time sounds like a contradiction, but it 's the perfect definition of what a phablet should be in 2017. If you're going to have a big screen, you better have very narrow bezels.

Note 8 shows Samsung's domain of "big screen, small body". Its 6.3 "18: 9.5 Super AMOLED" Infinity "aspect ratio makes the iPhone 7 Plus 5.5 inch screen absolutely dead, yet both phones have about the same dimensions.

The huge screen of Note 8 gives you more space to read, more space to draw with the S Pen, a wider window for watching videos. But still does not say anything about the quality of the screen itself. The OLED display has a resolution of 2,960 x 1,440, and the panel is incredibly bright, 22 percent more than the already blazing screen of S8 / S8 + and 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut means the HDR content will give you a higher dynamic range and more visible colors.

Samsung's phone screens never cease to amaze and this is no different. Even around 60 percent brightness, the display is perfectly visible in direct sunlight. Photos and videos look sharper than most computers , and black levels are so dark that even Darth Vader's armor can not match it.

The curved glass edges melt into the metal frame, which is thin enough to hold the power button, the volume button and the Bixby button . And speaking of curved edges, in Note 8 are less pronounced than those of S8 / S8 +. That means it has more flat surface to use the S Pen for handwritten notes and doodles.

Even the back of the phone looks great (when it is not covered in fingerprints). Samsung has reduced the cam protrusion to the point where it is almost flush with the body and does not balance at all on a flat surface. And while not ideal, there is more separation between the fingerprint sensor mounted on the back and the cameras . The fingerprint scanner is still a bit difficult to reach with your finger.

Like the S8, if you do not like the fingerprint scanner, you can set the iris scanner or face recognition to protect and unlock the phone. The latter is faster and more convenient, but less secure than the iris scanner.

And, of course, Note 8 has all that you expect from a Samsung phone: water and dust resistance IP68, fast wireless charge, fast charge via USB-C, a microSD card slot ... The speaker is still mono and not stereo.
The camera, buffff

It has a pair of 12 megapixel rear cameras, a regular wide-angle lens (f / 1.7) and a 2x secondary telephoto lens with f / 2.4 lens. Unsurprisingly, it makes excellent photos and selfies with the wide-angle camera in daylight, outdoors and in low light. The shutter is fast and the colors are classic because they look vibrant and sharp, and the details in the photos are a bit different from the same pictures taken by an iPhone.

But it is the "Live Focus" mode that impresses and leaves the iPhone 7 Plus at the height of bitumen. Live Focus does two things better than iPhone Portrait mode, since you can adjust the intensity of the background blur in real time or after taking the photo with a simple slider. Being able to go from 35 to 100 percent of degree of blur is one last thing, which the iPhone 7 Plus is not able to do. This is where the Apple phone is clearly humiliated by the Samsung.

Moreover, it is a great terminal and it seems that the Koreans have managed to remove the stains that the disaster of Note 7 supposed them. Even so, the iPhone 7 Plus proves to be a worthy competitor being a device with a technology a year earlier. You know, Apple is Apple.
