The Galaxy Note 8.0 was first introduced at Mobile World Congress as a multifaceted device; it was part tablet, part mobile phone. Indeed, the global variant of the Note 8.0 is equipped with a cellular radio that can handle both data and voice transmission. But the Note 8.0 that shipped in the U.S. market is a simpler device, mostly because there's no voice capability--it's just a tablet. Well, "just" is a complicated term in this case. You see, the Note 8.0 is one of the only 8-inch tablets on the market. It's positioned between a glut of 7-inch tablets (including a few from Samsung itself), and a raft of 10-inch tablets. And the Note 8 offers a number of other features, like Samsung S Pen stylus and AirView, unavailable anywhere else...

Hey, I read your review and I really liked it. I have a galaxy note 8.0 and I thought of ways to make it better. I thought of buying a wireless keyboard and I stumbled upon this website http://www.jsxltech.com/products/makers-s8u-wireless-bluetooth-keyboard-with-leatherette-protective-case-and-stand-for-samsung-galaxy-note-8-0 . It is basically a protective case which has a wireless keyboard that can be used up to 10 meters (it's a lot, no?). It comes in 3 colors, which I find great, and it also has a nice look to it.
What do you think, is it worth the money? I didn't find anything better for that price, that's why I'm asking. Thanks!
@razvanlost: The price is comparable to others I've seen on Amazon, (there are a plethora of keyboards & cases for the Note 8.0). If you don't have a laptop, then having a keyboard is a great addition. There are also some keyboards that are detachable from the case as well.
I live in Thailand and bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 a week ago because for me the stylus is something I will get a lot of use and benefit out of, but:
1. I am now on my 5th Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in a week with all of them exhibiting a manufacturing QC fault of a portion of the screen being non-reactive to the stylus unless it is pressed quite hard against the glass.
2. The Samsung Thailand website has no English language content at all, not even contact details
3. The packaging and warranty registration cards provided with the product are entirely in Thai language
4. There is a phone number for a call centre on the warranty card but the greeting and instructions are entirely in Thai and selecting numbers at random merely gets you to a Thai speaking agent who promptly returns the call to the queue as soon as they hear English language
On the plus side the hand writing recognition is extremely good, the processor fast, and the tablet a nice size for taking everywhere.
If not for the unresponsive section of screen and soft keys for return and backspace requiring additional screen pressure to activate I would be delighted with the product, but five out of five units all having the same problem and not being able to communicate with the company at all indicates to me that Samsung is being extremely brave pitching the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 at a price point equal to an IPad mini here.
If my money isn't as good as a Thai persons money and Samsung can't provide even English language contact details I'll stay with the Japanese and American manufacturers who don't discriminate and provide dual language warranty details and websites.
My fifth Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be returned to the store for refund today and I'll wait for someone to bring out a better stylus-equipped 8-inch tablet.
originally, anybody want to buy a note . Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is the best quality product but now a days it review bad effect on this people. Tablet is better than it. Anyone can to buy a tablet anytime.
