    Review Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

    By creating a successful smart phones, Samsung has not yet managed to achieve great results in the tablet market. The reason for this can be called a variety of errors, as in the "hardware" and software models of the past. But if the company is learning from its mistakes? We have the opportunity to find out in the review of tablet Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.

    Design and Ergonomics

    "For Galaxy Note II drove rink?", "Someone stepped on your Galaxy SIII» - this is not a complete set of jokes that people can hear with Galaxy Note 8.0 in hand. And it really is, the tablet is very similar to the popular smart phones Samsung.

    One could blame the designers of the company of negligence or lack of new ideas, but if you were selling millions of devices with similar design, to what decision was made? Appearance Note 8.0 - it's just a reaction to consumer demand. And it just shows that the design does not always play an important role, between the beautiful and functional device buyers often choose the latter. Now Samsung have a policy of "more important than what is on the screen rather than around it," and while this approach is justified. In my case, Note 8.0 has caused more positive emotions than negative. I have for some time enjoyed the Galaxy SIII , and experience with this tablet is very similar to the one that was with the smartphone.

    Control keys in Note 8.0 are almost the same place as that of the SIII. On the right side: the button lock / unlock the screen, below it the volume rocker.

    The frame around the display, which initially seems to be too large, in practice improves the usability of the tablet. It can be held in one hand without touching the screen that virtually eliminates false depression.

    The main body material Note 8.0, as well as the Samsung opened recently, it is plastic. Not the most practical choice of the manufacturer, the back part of the plate can be quickly covered with small scratches. But on the whole, despite the plastic body is well built and does not squeak when squeezed.

    Automatic brightness

    It's not the best screen on the market, and its resolution by today's standards is average. However, it copes well with its main task. The display wide viewing angles and good color reproduction. Resolution is consistent with the diagonal, so there is no grit on it, the pixels can only be viewed if desired.

    Fades in the sun, but still readable. Its brightness can be adjusted manually or automatically by a sensor.

    Platform and Performance

    The main 5-megapixel autofocus camera with photo module appeared in Note 8.0 rather based on the fact that the tablet should be a camera, not with an eye to the desire of users to make high-quality pictures. Thus, it takes the average quality photos with a resolution of 2560x1920 pixels. With an increase can be seen that the camera pulls bad parts even in good light. Bytheway, theflashisnotinNote 8.0.

    The module itself is pretty decent camera protrudes from the body, raising concerns about the strength of the protective glass.

    After an unsuccessful attempt to use a compact tablet OS from the 10-inch models, Google have adopted a different approach by introducing it into the Nexus 7, and it really pays off. Given the fact that most new smartphones come with a resolution of 1280x720 (800) points, and the flagship model at all with Full HD, the application on the screen 7-8-inch plate stretched, but are still easy to use.

    Samsung is determined to return to the roots, as the first Galaxy Tab was released on Android 2.2, for which there was no "tablet" interface. In general, what is in Note 8.0 smartphone operating experience interaction does not suffer, but on the contrary. All system components and applications appear larger, get comfortable on them with your fingers. But more than that, honed on smartphones Samsung interface, the tablet also works fast. Subjectively, Note 8.0 the fastest Android-tablet I've ever seen.

    A set of programs and opportunities in Note 8.0 is comparable to what has been a Galaxy Note II. From the built-in applications, traditionally, it may be noted S Note notebook with the ability to create drawings, notes, audio recordings, and with the recognition of formulas.

For example, in video you can see some video footage without stopping.

    He probably is an interesting addition.

    Note 8.0 charging connector via standard microUSB, and not proprietary, which Samsung previously used in all of their plates. And it is certainly a step in the right direction. Video review As a result,

    If we consider the entire line of tablets Samsung, Galaxy Note 8.0 is easily knocked out of it, as it is unusual for a company decision. Engineers try to move it out of the world best smartphones and although this approach is not appropriate in all in Note 8.0, mostly it works. The tablet is easy and convenient in everyday use, its capacity is sufficient for most purposes. Moreover, it can be seen that Samsung did learn from their mistakes. The company refused to proprietary connector for charging in favor of a universal microUSB, and optimized interface. Criticism in Note 8.0 only call camera and a plastic body over which would be worth more work. But when taken as a whole, then the Samsung almost the first time went really well-balanced plate that deserves sign "Editor's Choice". It is not entirely clear from the question of its price at the start of sales she declared at the level of 5999 USD, which is even more expensive than it is now asking for the Note 10.1 and a bit absurd. But closer to the start volume shipments, with high probability, the price should be adjusted.
