Gaaaaaaaaah, it’s the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, in house! Finally! We’ll get to the review to you here shortly, but for now, it’s Galaxy Note 8 unboxing time.
Like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ before it, the Note 8 ships in an all-black box with matching black accessories. You’ll find a USB Type-C cable, Fast Charging adapter, AKG-tuned earbuds, guides, and a couple of USB adapters depending on your needs. You’ve certainly got all you need here from Samsung, even if the accessories aren’t quite as nice as those included with the Essential Phone.
The phone itself, as you all know, is a massive one. It features that 6.3-inch QHD Super AMOLED Infinity display with 3300mAh battery, S Pen, and dual cameras, along with a whole bunch of other tech that few companies manage to cram into a single phone This particular version is the Verizon model in Midnight Black and man is it sleek. It’s huge, but sort of in a nice way.
In hand, the phone will remind you very much of the Galaxy S8+, only a bit more squared off on the edges. It also feels larger to me even though I know the two are similar in size. There is no mistaking this for anything but a Samsung phone, though, trust me on that.
Samsung’s site currently has the best Samsung Galaxy Note 8 deal for those interested.
