Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

Verge Review

The story of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 really starts with a different device — the Galaxy Note 10.1. Samsung advertised a power-user's dream device: letting you edit documents or draw with a pen, do more than one thing at a time, and even take handwritten notes like it's 1746 or something. Oh, and be a tablet and do all the things a tablet should. The Galaxy Note 10.1 did all of those things, but didn't do a single one well, which left a previously very excited Nilay Patel very sad indeed. ...

    I bought the 8.0 as soon as they had it available in stores. I'm a note 2 and ativ smart pc 500t owner and can honestly say that all 3 devices serve a purpose. I'm a illustrator and graphic designer so I need to be able to jot down ideas 24/7 and samsung has made some amazing devices for creative people. Easy to hold, solid build and good software. I wish they would have kept the phone capabilities. As I don't make many phone calls, I could easily have done away with the note 2 and managed everything with the note 8.0
