Difference between Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

 

Key difference: The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 aims at filling the gap between the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Note 10.1. The Galaxy Note 8 features an 8 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. The device is powered by a Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9 and 2 GB of RAM. The device runs on Android OS, v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). The Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tablet computer designed and manufactured by Samsung. It features a 10.1-inch screen and is marketed as a platform for multimedia consumption including movies, music, and web browsing.

 

Samsung is a major player on the world smartphone platform. It is the second most popular smartphone retailer in the world by number of units sold, after Apple. It is in fact the first most popular Android smartphone retailer in the world by number of units sold. The company’s Samsung Galaxy S3 was the first phone that gave the iPhone a real competition. Hence, effectively making the Galaxy brand, a brand to be reckoned with.

 

Another line of products that Samsung has made popular is the ‘phablet’ by introducing the Samsung Galaxy Note. A phablet is a cross between a phone and a tablet; it sized as a table but with all the properties of a phone. Samsung’s latest product in this category is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. While, officially the Note 8 is considered a tablet, it does come with the optional SIM slot, thus allowing it calling and 3G capabilities.

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 aims at filling the gap between the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Note 10.1. The Galaxy Note II featured a 5.55 inch screen, while the Galaxy Note 10.1, as the name suggests a 10.1 inch screen. There just wasn’t an option in between unless one considered the Galaxy Tab series, which of course did not come with the S-pen stylus.
