Galaxy Note 8 setting pre-order records in the US

Home / News / Galaxy Note 8 setting pre-order records in the US

The Galaxy Note 8 is setting new pre-order records for Samsung in the United States, according to The Korea Herald, which claims that the firm has named the handset the most-reserved smartphone in the Galaxy Note range; however, the exact amount of units it’s sold in the region remains unknown.

Last week, Samsung revealed that approximately 395,000 customers rushed to pre-order the Galaxy Note 8 when reservations opened in South Korea on Thursday, September 7, outpacing the 380,000 reservations its ill-fated predecessor—the Galaxy Note 7—received over a 13-day period.

The Galaxy Note 8 is already performing a lot better than we expected, though we aren’t sure whether anticipation for a new Galaxy Note smartphone or its complex dual-camera setup is driving the bulk of the sales. One thing’s for certain, though: it isn’t its measly 3,300mAh battery.

We’re still working on our comprehensive review of the Galaxy Note 8, but if you’re itching to find out more, be sure to check out our hands-on coverage. We also rounded up a number of the device’s most-impressive features, for those who missed its announcement, which you can find here.

If anyone should stop calling the Note 8 battery measly, it’s you Sammobile. Read the test results and be happy that the battery is performing as good as the S8+, which is not bad at all.

Why oh why couldn’t you just leave it at the fact that it’s doing good for pre orders then take a cheap shot at it for its battery capacity 😂

Not surprised, it’s a great phone. Still waiting on mine. As far as the typical snide comment about the “measly” battery, a number of battery tests have shown it to actually last longer than the S8 plus. Obviously some great optimization going on. You should check your facts Josh before putting your foot in your mouth.

It is not better battery, you’re telling me since the S8+ was released there has been a great advancement of battery technology. I get 5.5hrs of screen on time on my S8+ at WQHD+, Bluetooth on and constantly connected to my Gear S3. Even Samsung has stated it has a smaller battery life than the S8+. and if it optomisation, the S8+ will be getting the same thing sooner or later as it has the same chipset and will be getting the Samsung Experience upgrade with Oreo

All mac said was Note8 does not have a “measly” battery as mentioned in the article. No one is bashing your s8+. Just chill out
