Samsung announced its much-awaited Galaxy Note 8 smartphone and the device has already received a lot of positive rating from the geeks and consumers alike.

Oh yea, obviously the price will differ. While you’re getting almost everything similar to note 8. However, you’re not gonna get a S-Pen with S8+ and of course the note 8 offers dual camera but note 8 has less battery than S8+ and for a common consumer battery does matter. How often you use your dual camera, ask yourself; but the battery stays with you whole day.
