The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is a beautiful little tablet, there’s no doubt about it. It has a nice screen, great battery life, and some very unique features. Unfortunately, it’s also a relatively expensive tablet. At a $400 base price, it’s one of the most expensive small tablets: $70 more expensive than the comparable Apple iPad mini, and a full $200 more expensive than the Nexus 7
While it has a few advantages over those two, like the S-Pen system, expandable memory, multitasking, and a free 50 GB Dropbox account, that’s an awfully big premium to pay for those features. If you’re not interested in the S-Pen and its attendant apps, the Note’s high price is probably a non-starter.
- Excellent battery life
- Useful multitasking controls
- Stylus is very accurate and handy for note taking
- Very expensive compared to alternatives
- Poor camera quality
A very nice tablet, with a lot of features that set it apart from the pack — and a pricetag which does too, although not in a good way.
