While there’s nothing terribly surprising in this list, the Note 8 is still stacking up to be an excellent device on paper. With new features such as dual auto focus with OIS rear image sensors as well as a rumoured 3x optical zoom, the Note 8 may shortly be the best Android camera on the market.
Unfortunately, that excellent package is likely to come in at or over the $1499 – $1500 AUD mark which is going to be a bitter pill to swallow. However, for those who want the latest and greatest Samsung has to offer and can find the dosh the Note 8 is shaping up to be on of the most compelling devices of 2017.
