The latest iteration of the Galaxy S8 is a premium phone that features a stunning 4K screen and a massive battery.
But despite all the premium features, we have to say, we prefer the Galaxy Note 8’s battery life and the larger screen size.
We also like the fingerprint scanner, and we can’t imagine any other phone would be this attractive for the money.
That said, Samsung doesn’t get a whole lot of credit for being one of the best battery makers in the world.
In fact, it is so bad that we have yet to see a Galaxy Note 9, and Samsung has even dropped the phone to a lower-end variant.
We’ll get to that later.
All this means is that Samsung is still a relatively new company in the smartphone industry.
The company is still trying to figure out how to sell the Galaxy X and X+ series phones to a broad range of buyers, and it’s not yet clear what sort of performance Samsung will offer.
That will change with the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+ phones, which will have bigger and better screens and be better value for the same money.
However, we won’t get to see that until Samsung has shipped them, and there’s no guarantee they will be the best phones out there.
