Comments are appreciated !!!
Thanks for sharing. There is so much technology around these days it is hard to keep up. Sometimes is seems you need to have a technical degree to understand it all.
I like your website and the information you offer for us nontechie people.
Hi Salman, I thin it will be a great alternative to Apple iPad Mini. The specifications are incredible and features are awesome as usual.
Hi there) The review is nice. I’m new to your site and was browsing it and lots of info is quite useful! I’m Android lover for sure and every time I see someone posted some review about galaxy i feel that I;m not alone) LOL
Oh yeah. New toy! Thanks for detailed review. I ALREADY WROTE THAT i’M TOTALY ANDROID FAN! and happy to read any info about that)))
Interesting. But I remember the first Samsung tab/fon that looked too big for a fon, and small for a tablet/ like a mini. of course this Note8 has latest high specs. I guess note 1 or 2 is right size for a fone, which can fit in a pocket. What would be more
Would definitely consider Samsung Galaxy Note 8 if i were to purchase something to replace my aged iPad 2. Still having to hard time considering whether i should get the iPad mini instead.
