Galaxy Note 8 wins the ‘Flagship Smartphone of the Year’ award in India

After the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, which cost Samsung a whopping $17 billion, questions were raised about the viability of the Galaxy Note brand. Many believed that the Galaxy Note brand has turned into liability for Samsung, and thus may be killed forever. A year later, it is safe to say all those predictions have turned out to be wrong. Far from being dead, the Galaxy Note 8 has been earning praise from reviewers, customers and various quarters of the industry.

After winning the ‘Gadget of the Year’ award at the India Mobile Congress in September, the Galaxy Note 8 has won the ‘Flagship Smartphone of the Year’ at the Exhibit Tech Awards 2017 today in Gurgaon, India. Samsung also bagged a win in the wearables category with the Gear S3 winning the ‘Wearable Gadget of the Year’. Clearly, a good day for Samsung at the awards ceremony!

Since the launch of Galaxy Note 8 in September, the sales have been strong. In some markets, it was even able to beat the iPhone 8 sales. With robust sales and praise from critics, it is certain that the Galaxy Note series is back and here to stay.

Got my Note8 for almost 2 months and greatly satisfied with the battery, performance and camera. Im looking forward for the Note series. My last S series phone is S6 edge. Battery sucks. I charge my phone 4x a day. Unlike on Note8 just 1 charge and you have it for the whole day.

Note surprised at all (misspelling intended). Note series always stood out due to top notch specs and the pen, that makes Note a device of its own class.

Not surprised. Definitely the phone of the year. I have had the December patch for almost 2 weeks now here in Turkey on my unlocked Note8. I do wish they were more consistent in other markets though. Carrier versions in some countries like the UK are updated but unlocked versions aren’t. As the update is transmitted on carrier networks I’m wondering are they punishing people who choose the freedom of unlocked devices by not sending the update.

Well I’m sure in India they get updates for it unlike the Uk!!!!

Stop crying about it and flash it. It’s easy to do.

Yes all these non stop post crying about updates are soooo annoying.

Well I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be to impressed if it was you who had spent all that money to be left at the back of the que! I’ve tried multiple times to download the firmware to flash myself but it fails every time!!

You’re not doing it right.. If it’s failing it means you have a bad USB connection to your PC, try a different port and/or a new cable. If the download is failing from Sammobile you should check your WiFi connection.

I’m just trying to download official software from sammobile to flash with Odin which won’t void my warranty. My Wi-Fi connection is fine. I get 72mbs download but it always fails at around 40%

Apparently even flashing official firmware voids the warranty… What Samsung told earlier this year

I wouldn’t recommend flashing it unless you are sure of what you are doing, even then, it voids the warranty. and I can never fathom what changed here in the UK. since the S6s carrier models appear to be getting software updates first (except the beta OS update). before then, the S4 and S5 unlocked models were getting the updates first. doesn’t make sense.

And voids the warranty. so if anything does happen to your phone – you’ll have to pay a hefty price to get it repaired. or even checked out. if its after the 2 year warranty, I’d say go for it.

The note always wins out every year, its great! even the Note7 was the best phone on the market upon release and if it didn’t have the battery issue it would have been top spot again. for the first time, I am not actually looking forward to the S release this year (going by the latest rumours) – much more interested in what the Note9 will become.
