Just to confuse you a little bit more than usual, Samsung has released the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0—an 8-inch tablet this time instead of an oversized smartphone that usually comes in a couple of inches smaller.

The Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone series has always been a popular one. It remains to be seen how far the tablet line will go, but this one managed to sell well. People love the fact that it has a great internet connection, ideal for everyday use, excellent UI speed, and a decent battery.
