Samsung released Galaxy Note 8.0 and it is available to purchase in the United States for $399 from April 11th. Everyone knows that the Galaxy Note series from Samsung is awesome. However, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is not so awesome. Why? There are a list of reasons why the Galaxy Note 8.0 is not worth buying.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is 0.76 pounds heavy, and the side bezel (landscape) is 0.7 inches. If this tablet is compared to the iPad mini, the side bezel is three times thicker. Therefore, the customer experience with the hardware won’t be good as the iPad mini gives you.
2. It was made to prevent iPad mini’s popularity
iPad mini was released with a 7.9 inch display with an awesome hardware. After the iPad mini was released, Samsung released Galaxy Note “8”.0. This was clear that Samsung made this to prevent iPad mini to increase their sales.
$399 for a 8 inch tablet is too expensive. When it is compared to iPad mini ($329) or Nexus 7 ($199) it is excessively expensive.
We would not recommend you to purchase the Galaxy Note 8.0 because it is not worth it.
