Which one is best for you?
The 2017 Samsung Galaxy Note8 is a powerful phone with a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display, dual camera, 6GB RAM processor and 3300 mAh battery. Plus it comes with the stylish signature S Pen to jot down quick notes and draw with – you can even make your own emojis, animated GIFs, and add handwritten notes to your photos.
The S10 boasts a 6.1-inch WQHD+ Infinity-O Display that has a tiny circular cut-out at the top of the phone for the front camera, so you’ll enjoy an all-screen viewing experience. Being a much more recent release than the Note8, the S10 is packed with an advanced triple camera and sports a processor twice as big as the Note8.
The Galaxy Note8 has a 12+12-megapixel rear camera with dual optical image stabilisation so you’ll get sharp photos on your night out – even when it's dark in the club and difficult to keep your phone steady on the dance floor. And whether you're a hobby photographer or a seasoned pro, the S10’s True Vision camera will be an extension of your creative self. Take social media-ready travel shots, and zoom in for more detail with the 12+12+16-megapixel triple camera.
Both phones have effective security mechanisms – such as iris and fingerprint scanners, as well as face recognition – that prevent unwanted snooping, so you can conveniently unlock your phone with a glance or a tap. But the S10 has an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner – so that’s even more secure than other unlocking methods if you want to play it safe.
