Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy S8+: Is the Note really any better?

2633 ratings | 233892 views
Thanks to dbrand for supporting the channel: http://dbrand.com/AP The Galaxy Note8 and S8+ are both great phones - but they're also super similar. Did Samsung accidentally make the better phone earlier in the year, or are the Note8's upgrades really worth the premium you pay for them? Want to sponsor the next Android Police video?

Still using my note 3 since 3 years ago. Never restored it to factory settings, using the last android it could update to (5.1). And it still works good

Tired them both, I ended up sticking with the 8+, no regrets

You are mistaken. The telephoto is only for live focus, not for the 2x optical zoom. it's for primary also. Note 8 holder here.

Honestly wtf are you doing with your phone the reason why you only get 5 hours of battery life? Are you running stress tests 24/7?

What do you think about my situation? I currently am using a s8+ unlocked but from at&t and if you didn't know, theirs so many different versions of the s8, like all the carriers and then comes those rare 6gb ram Chinese s8+ . I currently have the worst s8+ because I will always be an update behind and currently till this day, I'm still stuck with 7.0 when I want to get the latest android software update 7.1.1 instead. So I want to sell my s8+ plus and buy another s8 but if i do, it will barely make a difference. so why not upgrade to a note 8 instead ? so I could at least see some differences and have that update where I could use the whole screen to my advantage without those damn "on screen buttons" being there? Should I get the note 8? And pay 200 more ? What do you guys think ? I'm up for it

Love my note 8
Petar Stankovic (3 months ago)
Hmm so noticeably better battery life and just smaller enough to be more comfortable in pocket and general use VS pen that I bet no one uses anyways? Even if they costed the same S8+ would be my choice, and it's not even a contest with price difference.
minimonkeyplay (3 months ago)
the only added benefit for me is the extra 2GB of ram the note 8 has. but it still does not feel like its worth 200$ more for 2GB of ram.

I prefer the Note 8 over the S8+ much more , I like the square design more than the round one from S8+ . I have both of them and I use the Note 8 much more than S8+ and the battery life is the same for me , it's not true that it lasts less than S8+ .

The problem is that both run Android and that garbage of a skin called Touchwiz/Samsung Experience. I had both when they came out. Got sick of them in a week and sold them at a loss. Good riddance. Samsung just doesn’t know software.

coming from htc 10 tried both note 8 and s8 plus. i decided to go for note 8. as it feels faster. s 8plus felt so slow as fuck i rather stay with my htc 10 than getting s8 plus. so i went with note 8 and no regrets

Note 8 can't use its full screen when watching videos. The s8 plus can use its full screen. I have both so I know.

Bad economy. 300 dollar difference is a lot of money. S pen makes you look like a girl.
Mike B (4 months ago)
I don't know what you're doing but maybe it's the ton of apps you have on your phone! But on my Note 8, I'm getting close to 9-11 hours screen on time!! And that may also be because I have the screen brightness turned down to halfway.. But 5 hours just seems not right..

I got an S8+ because it has the best battery life of all 3 devices, S8, S8+ and Note 8. And that is more important to me than 2GB more ram or a stylus pen. All Smartphones already have bad battery, no need to cut it even more if you ahve the choice.

Zach ... How in the hell do u get 7hr sot consistently on s8+?? How? Pls tell me? And u always have some crazy live wallpapers. I notice for some reason, when I theme my s8+ I get less batt and sot. Even if it's just the stock theme.

The Samsung Galaxy note 8 has more ram which helps it keep apps open and the phone has a better camera and more features. It also has a bigger and better screen. The only thing that it has similarities with is the build material that's it.
I Am Prometheus (5 months ago)
Yes it is. You have the apps open in the background it is faster and you get more features and a better camera.

Went for the s8 as originally had the s7 edge which at first felt too big for me until got used to it then when seen the s8 size was perfect for me didn't need anything bigger! 👍🏼

I am thinking the note 8 battery life thing comes down to a lottery. I have the note 8 and I love it, I have been getting 6+ hours of screen on time.

Does D-Brand even protect the phone from drops at all, or is it just for better grip/looks?
George Taylor (5 months ago)
Relax. It's all about preference. Note 8 fits the things I do to perfection. S8 my wife swears by. They are pretty much equal. My opinion? Note 8 is the best phone on the market.

I got the Note 8 from AT&T a few weeks ago and my wife got the S-8 and we both just absolutely love our phones, Yes they are spendy but I believe in both cases you are getting your moneys worth and I believe both phones will still be quite good two years from now which even adds more to the value, myself I probably don't use the S Pen as often as some I suppose but I do love that it is there. Great Phone and a great investment.

I picked note8, only because I have never had a phone with stylus in it before. And I did not regret, I love this phone over my 7plus~

Rodrigo M (6 months ago)
Love my S8 US unlocked. At $589 is a much better deal than carrying an expensive phablet. The Note 8 is a great phone but paying almost a thousand dollars for it... NO THANK YOU. Save your money until it goes on sale and they drop the price significantly.

Normal S8💪
