Testers note that Bixby has quite a lot of potential and is, in theory at least, smarter than other assistants. However, there is one major problem: voice recognition is poor, and Bixby kept misunderstanding what the testers were asking for.

There are some features people might argue are gimmicky, such as the new Live Message feature that lets you create and share animated GIFs, but actually we love that feature and were we able to keep the handset a little longer our friends would be well and truly fed up with all the GIFs we’d sent them over WhatsApp. Under the hood is an octa-core processor paired with 6GB of RAM, which makes it a very powerful handset indeed, ideal for multi-tasking and heavy use. The extra tenth of an inch of screen is insignificant and doesn’t matter, but Note fans adore the S Pen stylus functionality and its more square shape.If you don’t want to post your device, simply head to your nearest SMARTDrop Kiosk with your phone and get paid instantly! Our improved S Pen comes with greater pressure sensitivity and a thinner tip for a faster response and enhanced precision, letting you show-off your creativity when that moment of inspiration hits.

In real terms, there’s about a centimetre of frame visible above and below the display, but the rest is all immaculately polished and largely fingerprint-free glass, with a load more space for enjoying media and games, and for working with multiple apps at once. These figures suggest you needn’t be overly concerned by the decrease in battery capacity from 3,500mAh to 3,300mAh. Only the audio was rated average, testers noting that Sony offer much a better experience in this area. The major upgrade – aside from the bezel-less screen – is a set of dual 12-megapixel cameras found on its behind. In our brief experience with Bixby it seems to be much like the Google Assistant or Siri, and is happy to answer random questions and offer up funny responses.You can scribble things, in glowy or sparkly script, and they get turned into (widely viewable) GIFs that you can text. It’s here that you can alter the HDR settings – auto by default, on all three cameras, but it can also be set to off or on. If you're a faithful, longtime Samsung owner who likes the company's design and services, this device is terrific. App Pair, for instance, lets you group two apps together and open them both at the same time with a single tap of your finger.

Running the Geekbench 4 multi-core and single-core tests, the Galaxy Note 8 reached 6614 and 2008 respectively – the highest figure we’ve seen on an Android handset thus far. That’s before you take into account any cloud storage – the Note 8 comes with OneDrive and Google Drive preinstalled. Review summary: The Galaxy Note 8 earns points for an excellent display, useful S-pen functionality, outstanding cameras, and very solid overall performance. This is likely down to its inclusion of 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, because in other respects performance is very much on par with the 4GB RAM Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.Samsung says it has enhanced the pressure sensitivity of the S Pen for the Note 8, and refined the nib – it’s just 0. inch ‘Infinity Display’ to work with – but one that doesn’t increase the dimensions of the actual phone too much. While the Note 8 is a very strong addition to a competitive playing field, it outpaces all onlookers in only one of our benchmarks: Geekbench 4 multi-core. Live Message is a cool new feature that wittily gets around Samsung's lack of an iMessage-like messaging platform. Both phones are narrower than you would expect, given the curved edges, which makes them surprisingly comfortable to use in a single hand.
