  • Hi Salman,
    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 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.
