Galaxy Note 8 is already breaking Samsung sales records

It would seem that Samsung has a hit on its hands in the Galaxy Note 8. Pre-order numbers all around the world were very encouraging, and today, Samsung revealed that the Galaxy Note 8 broke sales records when it went on sale in the UK and Ireland last weekend. Though we don't have specific sales numbers, Samsung does claim that the Note 8 has been the "most successful" launch to date.

This is how to get a Galaxy Note 8 with a clear glass back

This is how to get a Galaxy Note 8 with a clear glass back

To cut to the chase: don't. But if you're loaded or have nothing to lose by potentially sacrificing a nearly $1,000 Galaxy Note 8 on the altar of aesthetics, then by all means go ahead. The glass backs of many of this year's flagship smartphones have caused the likes of JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson to dream of transparent smartphone cases. But since that is unlikely to become an offer that OEMs will make, your only real option is to do it yourself and live with the consequences.

Galaxy Note 8 preorder sales beat 7 (so far)

Galaxy Note 8 preorder sales beat 7 (so far)

As of the publication of this article, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 has out-sold every Galaxy Note smartphone before it. Over this same period of time (since announcement), more people have pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 than any other smartphone in the Galaxy Note lineup. This is a relief, I'm sure, to those at Samsung worried that last year's Galaxy Note 7 fiasco would dent the line's future sales.

See the Galaxy Note 8 scratched, burnt, bent in an array of entertaining tests

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was subject this week to the inexplicably popular master of smartphone destruction JerryRigEverything. This $1000 phone is scratched with an array of gradually-harder tools made for scratching. The Galaxy Note 8 is burned with a lighter. This phone is bent back and forth with excessive force. All in the name of entertainment.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review

You can't say Samsung's Galaxy Note brand isn't resilient: even explosions and costly recalls couldn't dampen enthusiasm for the new Note 8. Phablet fans are dedicated, though, especially those who demand stylus support too, which means the Note 8 arrives with an audience of eager buyers waiting to open their wallets. Problem is, 2017 isn't short on great phones: there's a new iPhone waiting in the wings, strong competition from LG and HTC, and even Samsung's own Galaxy S8+ is edging in on what would, traditionally, have been Note territory. It begs the question... did Samsung do the right thing, bringing the Note 8 back from the grave?

Netflix HDR now works on these three new phones

Netflix HDR now works on these three new phones

4K might still not be a thing, despite what Sony wants to make out of it, but HDR seems to be the next hot thing on premium smartphones. But as with any new entertainment trend, the problem is whether there’s content available to take advantage of the new technology. Fortunately, Netflix is coming to HDR’s rescue by enabling HDR mobile support for the Sony Xperia XZ1, the LG V30, and, of course, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

T-Mobile tipped to offer Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal tomorrow

T-Mobile tipped to offer Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal tomorrow

If you thought that T-Mobile’s only Galaxy Note 8 promo would be to ship it earlier than everyone else, better think again. Word on the rumor mill is the carrier will offer a Buy One Get One or BOGO to buyers, just as it did with the Galaxy S8 earlier this year. That will all supposedly start on Friday, right at the start of IFA. But if you’ve already pre-ordered the phablet from the carrier, worry not. You’re also covered, provided you meet the requirements.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 might ship sooner to pre-orders

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 might ship sooner to pre-orders

Haste makes waste, they always say. But it seems that conventional wisdom doesn’t apply, or at least isn’t heeded, in anything associated with Samsung. It has started to launch its products earlier than everyone else, with some disastrous results, and it seems that T-Mobile is following that trend as far as the Galaxy Note 8 is concerned. Some probably ecstatic subscribers have reported receiving notifications that their stylus-toting phablet might actually arrive before anyone else.

This is the pink Galaxy Note 8 you can’t have

This is the pink Galaxy Note 8 you can’t have

While manufacturers are trying to make black the new black again, there will always be markets where different colors hold sway. One such market, apparently, is Taiwan, whose obsession with pink hasn’t faded even a bit. Naturally, after launching the pink Galaxy S8 earlier this year, Samsung has now announced a pink Galaxy Note 8 in the country as well. But if you’re eyeing to get one for yourself, better luck next time because this might be available only in Taiwan.

Galaxy Note 8 gets better than best DisplayMate rating

Galaxy Note 8 gets better than best DisplayMate rating

If DxOMark is considered by some as the authority of smartphone camera benchmarks, when it comes to smartphone screens, DisplayMate is the name of the game. But while DxOMark has yet to find a smartphone that reaches a perfect 100, DisplayMate already has a “best” display ever in the Galaxy S8. So what can it do when the Galaxy Note 8 comes along with an even better screen? Why, give it its even higher A+ grade, of course!

Samsung mobile chief defends Galaxy Note 8’s smaller battery

Samsung mobile chief defends Galaxy Note 8’s smaller battery

While the Galaxy Note 8 is billed to be the perfect productivity tool, there is one aspect of it that seems to fly in the face of that vision: it’s battery. The most powerful and most useful smartphone would be rendered pointless if it couldn’t last a day without plugging in. That is indeed one of the biggest criticisms of Samsung’s latest phablet, which company mobile head DJ Koh tried to explain away in a press interview.

Galaxy Note 8: Samsung apologizes to Note 7 owners with discount

The anticipated Galaxy Note 8 was finally announced this week, marking the return of Samsung's impressive phablet device after last year's Note 7 debacle. Of course, those who had to give up the recalled Note 7 were already offered other Samsung flagships in exchange, but for those still faithful to the brand the company is offering a significant discount on the new Note 8.
