There are a lot of people out there who are still holding on to their Galaxy Note 4 even though the device is almost three years old now. Many of them didn’t upgrade to the Galaxy Note 5 because it didn’t have a microSD card slot and a removable battery. Customers in Europe didn’t even get the option to consider an upgrade.
The Galaxy Note 7 was next but we all know what happened with that device. The Galaxy Note 8 now presents them with another opportunity to move on to a more powerful Note experience.
If you’re one of those people, you’d certainly be interested in the specs comparison of the Galaxy Note 4 vs the Galaxy Note 8. Even though removable batteries are no longer a fixture on Samsung handsets, at least the microSD card slot is back!
