Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is definitely a masterpiece from the Korean Giant with a massive 6.3 inches infinity display, marginal bigger than Galaxy S8+ and 12MP fantastic dual cameras with wide angle and telephoto feature for taking your photography skills to the next level.
But, with all the appealing features and magical beauty, how good a smartphone would be if it doesn’t last a whole day and you find it obligatory to keep connecting it to a power socket for getting more life or may be a bulky power pack in hand.
This year’s phone, Samsung Note 8 houses a battery that is smaller in size by 200 mAh than previous year’s disastrous Note 7.
With this huge display and powerful camera, do you think your Note 8 will prove a good companion with 3300 mAh battery? Even Galaxy S8+ with a slightly smaller size has a 3500mAh battery.
Is it because Samsung was extra conscious this time about putting a battery that wouldn’t cause it to stumble again?
Company’s mobile division head DJ Koh in a press briefing has tried to explain the reason.
Koh’s reply on the battery is simply “because we can.” The company believes that a processing chip, either Snapdragon 835 or Samsung’s own Exynos 8995, uses 10nm technology which is far more efficient in overall consumption and hence there is no need to put a large battery.
Plus, the Korean giant wanted to ensure the users of Galaxy Note 8 that it was not going to face the fate Note 7 witnessed.
We are still skeptical of its daily life for mobile camera enthusiasts who would just fall in love with a dual camera resource hungry feature.
